    Default K98 bayonet...pawn shop find

    Today, while my mom and i were headed home after a hard workout at the gym, I saw a pawn shop on the corner of a street, and having never been in one, I practically begged my mom to stop at the one I saw. Well there wasn't much to see, but when I was taking a look into a case, under a bunch of junk I spotted this beauty! A k98 fireman's dress bayonet!!! And for only 75 dollars it could not get any better...but it did. I got the price down to 50!!! So now this beauty has a place on my shelf beside other bayonets, where it belongs. Hope you guys like it... And remember there is still good stuff out there!

    Nice score for $50, as the frog is harder to find than the bayonet, well done!

    You bought a frog and he threw in the bayo a scabbard for free! Nice find!

    Thanks for the comments. Does anyone have any idea of the manufacturer? I have never seen that maker mark before.

    "Verchrome" is not the makers name. It simply means that the blade was chrome plated. Not all these bayonets were maker marked.

    How often do you see a regular bayonet with a frog? Same concept...they were made of leather, dried,rotted,fell apart...that, and many GI's found it easier to hang up and display if they took off the leather belt hanger and tossed them away...The dress bayonets took their own special frogs and unlike the combat bayonets that were produced in the zillions, the dress bayos were much more limited in numbers...You can likely find a combat bayonet frog easily enough if you need one, but to find a Dress frog is not so easy..
