    Great thread guys, and gal !

    And a very nice Diamant bayonet.................!


    I know that some Vets do not want to talk of there experiences that much,
    my own godfather was like that - but it was great that you got to meet with him !

    I've read that some guys felt guilty because they actually enjoyed what they did,
    and are now embarassed about it. You should not press them for info
    if they really do not want to say anything.

    I simply shake their hand and thank them for their service........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Fully Agree Wolf(steve)....the last thing i wanted to do was to press an issue he did not feel comfortable to discuss. I was happy enough just to meet him and even better, I found that he was not ripped off by some1 who worked there!

    Well, My Matching # 5683 "f" 43FZE (fw holler) Combat bayo just got here today after almost 2 weeks in the mail!! This is rarer than my Elite Diamant Bayo as there were less of these put into production. This blade is the nicest one I have seen....it is full crossgrained, no in-out marks, not sharpened, and blade tip is perfect. Also came with the frog.]
    ki;/p However this is a different style blade since it is a later war bayo. Most of the early war bayos will have "blued" style blades, these mostly have that nice crossgrained type blade without that shiny "blueing".

    I just got this Elite Diamant k98 bayonet with matching # scabbard and frog. Never sharpened and 95% blueing left on blade.No rust, no cracks in bakelites, Only minor "in-out marks". It is a 1939 piece and I have found 6 waffenampt marks(218) on it so far! I never knew they marked them so much! 2 on the pommel, 1 behind crossgaurd, 1 on release button, 1 INSIDE the realease mechanism (with #'s), and 1 on the scabbard fenial (ball). I acquired it in an odd way too.

    I answered an AD from a classified. I called and talked to a woman who told me to come pick it up at a nursing home. I got there and she handed me the bayonet to check out. I asked how she came about it. She said it was an old US soldier from ww2 who is a patient and is not doing so well. I noticed a name written on a piece of tape on the scabbard and asked if this was him. YES. I asked to speak to him...and she said NO, only family members because he is not in the greatest of health. I was upset. He told the nurse to tell the buyer (me) that he acquired the bayonet in France while in the service and had kept it ever since. So i gave her the $100 asked for it. but i walked away really mad because I'm sure the old man had so many stories or even some information about how he got the bayonet. information of where or how pieces were acquired means more to me than the overall value of the item. I enjoy the history and meanings of my collection. Hopefully since i couldnt talk to him, I can do some research with the name that is written on the tape. I got it because I do not have a matching bayonet set in my collection. THANKS FOR LOOKING!!
    i have a 1938 dated matching number elite diamant bayonet and scabbard.the frog has b38 or d38 on it too. i have a post in edged weapons about it which i mistakenly headed 1937 instead of 1938! doh!!! cheers, mike
