    Hi
    Please have a look on this bayonet set.The owner proclaim it has matching numbers.What's your opinion?
    the second "6"of the "3663 n" on the scabbard looks like "o".Or it's just a kind of misprint.
    The Frog is different from the normal one by lacking the leather clip too.There is a marker "LBA (S)" on it with some letters I can't figure out.thanks

    Its a great piece, matching in p range, complete in untouched condition, the frog is bonus as Luftwaffe property marked. best regards,Andy
    The aditional number on left grip could be a museum or somehing similar inventory number, maybe 1964 is for year?

    Another tit bit of info for you. LBA(S) = Bekleidungsampt der Luftwaffe Sonneberg. (Luftwaffe Clothing depot Sonneberg)

    For many years people mistakenly thought the "S" stood for Stuttgart.

    The small white painted numbers look like museum inventory numbers to me.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks everyone.
    I didn't know this one is that good.I am really blessed.Many thanks.

    Andy:thanks for letting me understand its value,I though it's in "n" not "p" rank.
    Alan:thanks a lot for letting me know who is the maker
    Ade: thanks for the accurate meanings of these initials

    I am not sure it's really in "untouched" condition or not,there are some honest weary on this set though.It's not been sharpened,There are about 90% blue finish remain.No dent on scabbard but some lightly pockmarked surface near the tip.some weird thread in the slot of the grip Please see pics below.thanks
    BTW:The markers behind the forg should be

    Great condition, better a untouched piece as a new blueing or some postwar working on the piece.
