opinions on parade bayonet Tropical?

Article about: Need some help with this bayonet, is it a tropical or DAK, the frog looks ok to me, but I can't tell on the sheath if it is rusted or original paint. thanks

    In the photos it looks to me like a short dress bayonet that someone has put into a standard blued (underneath the rust) service bayonet scabbard in a tropical frog. With in my experience the earlier vintage DAK bayonets/frogs from veterans having the German S 84/98, which seems to have been repeated with the returning Australian and NZ soldiers. And with the DAK photos that come to mind, but there is always room for new period photos to expand the data base. Regards, Fred

    Yes you are right FP. This is a standard German S84/98 scabbard... with rust on the surface. Some put the Extra-Seitengewehr in this scabbard.

    Sleepwalker and Frog prince have nailed it KS98 does not go into a combat tropical frog should be in the patented leather dress frog. timothy

    Can you show the frog a little bit better? Are they any stamps or a maker mark?
