    I gues you have a German S84-98 bayonet.

    asw is the code for the maker - E & F Horster. 41 is the year of manufacture.

    2630 is the individual serial number of the bayonet.

    The other markings are probably the inspection stamps - do they have a small eagle and the letters Waa ?.

    Richie B has it right, with for my part a few observations and a question. If there is no letter with the number - for 1941 itís an early example for that year being in the first 10,000 manufactured. With the full Waffenamt (inspection stamp) being a WaA883 (although sometimes only partial stamps are seen). With the question being - is there a scabbard that came with the bayonet? FP

    Hello Frogprince,
    yes, it does have a scabbard. It has the same markings as the bayonet. (41asw and 2630 a).
    Does this still have a collector's value ? Ludo

    It would seem to be a matching bayonet and sheath. There will indeed
    be collector value, with a premium because they are matched -
    condition is important as well - Photos would be nice.........
    Regards,

    You will naturally need to have a digital camera or scanner attached to your computer.

    When posting a comment you will see two buttons in the lower right side.
    Hit the 'Go Advanced' mode, and scroll down to 'Additional Options',
    then hit 'Pictures Upload'. A window will open, and you can then
    select photos to upload from your files........

    Excellent. Glad you found out how to upload the pics !

    As long as the scabbard and bayonet have the same
    serial number, this is a bonus. It seems to be in
    average condition, and should be worth
    somewhere between $100 - $200.
