An original long dress bayo rig in fine shape.
Should have added that I think the maker mark is that of C.Gustav Spitzer.
It's in excellent condition. Nice find ! - The sheath
may be for a K98 combat bayonet and not
a dress type.........
Yes Steve you are correct..the Lion is Gustav Spitzer. Regards Larry

sheath is correct for this type of bayonet but the frog looks to be from a combat bayonet
Oops - my bad - old age creeping up on me
I meant to say FROG.........!
and frog was made in Breslau - today Wroclaw
Looking for following WWII German items:
- anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
- entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
- forestry and hunting items,

I agree with Warbuff and the aging wolf That is a beautiful dress bayonet in fine condition but the frog has been added to combo.
