Numbers Matching K98 Bayonet

Article about: I purchased this a while ago off of Craigslist. It is a numbers matching #8050, 41 ASW. Seems in very nice condition. I feel I got it for a very good price also, not a steal because I do not

    I have been looking at different sites selling frogs and see many, apparently to me, different style frogs. Would someone post a picture of a proper frog for this bayonet.

    Thanks,

    Sorry, but i do not like this bayonet. First, it is not a matching set because it is missing letter suffix under the serialnumber on the bayonet blade. The digit also looks a little strange! Be carefull!

    Nothing wrong with this bayo. Regards Larry


    Hi Larry,

    What do you think of AGV44's concern about the bayonet serial number? I never noticed it. I do not know that much about stampings. Can you shed any light on this issue?

    Just an observation but when you look closely at the serial number on the bayonet it looks like there has been another number underneath it thats been scrubbed and then the current serial number added over it? Might just be the way the pic appears on this laptop screen and in reality it's fine, though the lack of letter suffix along with the possibility of the number being restamped would make me a bit suspicious? Andy B is probably a good person to ask if it's a good one or not?

    Seems like a lot of work for a "Bayo"... I might believe this rubbish if it were a "Top End $$$ " Dagger of some sort... Just my two cents... G

    If it has been restamped wouldn't there be a letter suffix from the previous serial number? Why would someone re-stamp a bayo and not re-stamp a letter suffix. I am just asking, I don't know. Do all K98 have letter suffix's?

    Thanks to all who are responding. I love these exchanges.

    Who is Andy B? How do we get him to weigh in on this matter?

    No, not all had a letter suffix. The numbers started at 0001 and would go upto 9999, then they would start again at 0001a upto 9999a, then 0001b to 9999b and so on thru' the alphabet until they started again the next year.

    Here's a good site to look at if you are interested in 84/98 bayonets K98 Bayonet Registery...
