    Default k98 bayonet to identify

    Hello camrades,

    pls help me to identify this nice k98 bayo... No producer marks (at least to my knowledge) - only some skull face and small litera L in the blade!

    I find it also quite surprising that the handle of this k98 is lacking the flashguard - what does it means?

    Hi Bruno,
    Looks to me to be an interwar (maybe WWI) era S84/98 bayonet that has had the markings cleaned off and a SS deathshead added. I would say this is not original in my opinion.

    I belive that skull has nothing to do with Waffen SS - it is even not similar at all to any waffen skull... And what might be the meaning of small litera L in front of the edge?

    And finally - does anybody have some knowledge about k98 bayos produced without flashguards? I will place special photo as well:

    ...pls notice again that sheath has also no any markings - so the only markings to identify that set is unidentified skull and small litera L in the blade...

    Deathsheads were used in the early days to mark some equipment used by the SS-VT/SS-TV. But these markings are now faked. I cannot tell you if this particular one is original.

    Cheers, Ade.

    According to my bayonet book by John Walter,some early WW1 S84/98 II bayonets 1915 did not have flash guards,I believe the skull has been added.

    Thank to everybody so far...

    Any comments about small litera L in the edge of blade (unusual place) ??

    Additionally - my photos are not of very good quality but I can say for sure that this bayo has no any polishment or cleaning the markings or whatever other shit after it was produced...

    I heard somewhere it may belongs to some commercially produced k98 bayos?

    Some internet source is reporting: "litera L = German WW2 Police acceptance stamp letter"... comments on this?
