    Carl Schmidt & Sohn were still in production post war, and that is their late trade mark, so some photos of the parade bayonet would help identify if it's Third Reich era.

    You know Tony I have a little uneasy feeling about this one. I don't like the look of those shiny rivets, given the dull patina of the hilt. They look like alloy and slightly too large. Could we get a reverse shot and closeup. I have seen 1950's hunting knives by this maker (using same mark), so it makes me wonder if this is post war.

    Tony those rivets appear to be flat headed when we would expect a domed headed rivet during TR era. Also they show no sign of oxidation and appear to be made of alloy. They should be nickel or nickel plated steel. I'm going to call it as a "post war" parade bayonet, others may disagree. What we do know is some Solingen makers continued making Nazi era blades post war for the US GI market. A company called "B & A" produced SA and Heer daggers from 1946 to about 1951 when the swastika was banned. We know Carl Schmidt continued as a manufacturer post war, so it is a possibility. So this parade bayonet may have been made for a soldier, just not a German soldier.

    A good thread here on the postwar producer as Anderson pointed out of the Bolte and Anschutz assembler.
    I do not think they produced anything and rather gathered what loose fittings laid about in bombed out factories
