I think the scabbard was repainted after WW2.
Screw that holds the scabbard screw who holds bayonet fixators is not in good place, a bayonet frog was either drawn from the scabbard, or is subsequently inserted.
(Frog stud hole is stretched)
the scabbard is a (captured) polish one for the Modells Wz.24,28 and 29. Since 1936 until Sept. 1939 the polish army painted the scabbards olive.
Polish made mauser bayonets
After the occupation of Poland the Germans use the captured small arms including bayonets.
In the origin the bayonets out of the WaA contract had matching numbers...
This scabbard is a spare scabbard for a lose or damaged original one. You can find such combinations from time to time.
There is no problem with the originality... IMO a normal combination before 1945.
The frog matches the bayonet, but is in a bad shape...
Nice E.Pack 1940 production bayonet in a polish scabbard.
