    Default German Bayonet found

    Hi, was wondering if anybody could shed some light on this Bayonet found in my attic when doing some work in the attic last year. I live on the west coast of Scotland and have no idea where it came from.

    Knowing the house I live in, build in 1949 I know the 3 previous occupants and they have no idea either.

    I did send some pics and to a trader in England with the pics and asked to provide some detail but his only reply was "I will give you 50 for it" - No history, where it came from, if its genuine or not and how the hell did it end up in my attic?

    Thanks for your time.

    It is a 'Demag' crank-handle bayonet from WWI. Not in terrific shape,
    but rather rare, and worth a lot more than 50 Pounds, IMO !

    Reproductions are worth about 40 Pounds.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Thank you for such a rapid response.

    As I have no intention of keeping it, where would be the best place to put it on the market.

    I am sure somebody else would appreciate it more than I ever would.

    Cheers

    Hello,
    for 50 keep it.
    What you have there is no a bayonet stricto sensu, it's a german WWI combat knife known as the DEMAG, that could be also used as a bayonet. They're nice and desirable (and faked on a large scale)...
    A scottish soldier might have seized this one from a landser and brought back it home...keep it...
    Thank

    Hi JPhillip, cheers for the info.

    I really think its a nice thing, but with having 2 young sons who are into everything (and expensive) I would rather get rid and make a collector happy and maybe....just maybe pay for a tank for fuel. Which with the way fuel is rising in the present climate is very doubtful!!

    Thanks again for your reply.
