    Default k98 bayonet frog and Rbnr numbers questions?

    I have a couple frogs with Rbnr numbers, one of which I don't think is on the master list shown on the site, and the arrangement of the Rbnr numbers is different, not all in a single line, and dated 43 on the bottom. The numbers are 0/0676/0039 and finally 43.

    The other frog Rbnr numbers are much harder to read, but it looks like 0/250/001 for the Berlin area, but there is also more numbers underneath along with what looks like 194(?). This one also has rather flimsy leather by comparison to other frogs, the handle retaining loop leather is rough side out, and the steel retaining loop stud is slightly pointy, not flat on top like your typical German holster closure stud.

    Is it normal to see much flimsier leather on a late war frog? The leather in the front pocket area of the frog is half the thickness of the other frog. The belt loop area is also narrower than the other one.

    Any thoughts from advanced bayonet/frog collectors welcomed.

    "0676" is for makers located in Offenbach (Hessen).

    Cheers, Ade

    Thanks much Ade, I will add it to my records. Is it odd to have the Rbnr nummers stacked up like this?
