    I only have a general knowledge of this sort of thing and others will give better info, but just to make a start, this certainly seems original to me. I suspect your price for a real one is a little on the high side.

    It is certainly not a repro, and for that price he got a bargain, It is real, and would easily retail for around the 90-110 mark.

    I think you will find that the red felt denotes Armed Services in General
    Green for Jaeger and so on

    Yes. John knows his stuff of course, but thats the sort of money I would expect to pay for one.

    How many do you want

    I think that 150-200 is at the very top end price wise. I wouldn't expect to sell it at that price. 110 it would go, of course it would depend on how much one paid for it

    I rest my case..... This one is minus the knot, but it doesn't make it a 200 dress bayonet

    A very nice bayonet, and 100% real. If I had it, I'd ask $145.00, so a great deal on your friends part!

    Thanks guys,, it aint mine though,, wish it was and i may convince him,,
    He paid 40 for it so well worth it, the blade is super clean, scabbrd has a few chips here and there and the frog looks good too.

    Ah,, i do have here two military marked k98 bayo`s i could tempt him with the real thing so to speak.
    out of curiosity what do the potepees fetch if sold alone,, and what do the colors represent?

    Looks like a fireman's portepee IMO. Alone it's probably worth $55-65.
