    A nice example of an 84/98 bayonet, even if mismatched. Always nice to have an original frog to complete the set. Is this your first 84/98 or just another one added to the collection?

    Hi Jim
    picked this one up for a very reasonable price from a local Gun dealer!! he had a job lot come in !! not his usual thing!!! and I also bought several more!!! ( a Swiss STG 57, Swiss R33, a Vz 24, a Mk 5 Ghurka khukri... and even a 1907 Enfield British Wilkinson bayo resto project (see my other thread)!!!!

    1907 WW I bayonet (well meaning owner restored!!!!)

    at the price I couldn't really resist!! I always used to say I wouldn't start collecting bayonets!!! hurumph!!! and they call cigarettes addictive!!!

    From the blueing and special ended flashguard i would say its a postwar refurbished, looks too dark the blueing on pommel and crosguard. br.Andy
    PS ball finial should be WaA519

    Hi Guys
    Thanks for the comments!!
    Andy,
    The ball finial could very well be a"5" and not an "8".... as you can see it is worn/miss-stamped... and the finish is very good so refinished is very real possibility!!!

    would I be right in saying FNJ is A. Coppel maker!????
    and blade Mundlos A.G. Magdeburg!???

    43 fnj is Coppel GmbH and Mundlos is clear, You are correct by designation of makers.b.r.Andy
