    HI Rory..welcome to the forum ..a great start to finding out identity would be to post a few photos.

    The "clc" is the producer of Richard Herder..and the year of production is 1944. clc44 see below the link to K98bayo codes

    http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/k98-ba...s-rbnr-233978/

    The h3163 may be a reworked bayo number..but that would be best left to our bayo guys here to answer that number sequence. Photos please would make all the difference in identifying possible reworked bayos from the time period.

    Regards Larry

    It looks like a nice late 44clc piece, in last known series, unfortunally the blade was proofed to sharpen postwar. b.r.Andy

    Being in agreement that it's most likely postwar, and sometimes more of a experience-judgement call, for this example why doesn't the sharpened edge have the same aged/rusty appearance as the rest of the blade? Added to the fact that it's a late manufacture bayonet that left the factory in new condition that intentionally was not sharpened. With the bluing providing some rust protection that was removed when it was sharpened. Rest Regards, Fred

    My immediate recollection is that the folks at the Herder firm used upper case letters at the beginning, instead of lower case at the end to identify the serial number blocks of 10,000 bayonets - for reasons that were best known to them at the time. Best Regards, Fred

    Hello,

    sharping of the blade was vorbidden.

    A sharped blade means a damaged bayonet.
