    Default post war etched dress bayonet?

    Good evening. I was wondering how to tell if a dress bayonet was etched post war or during the war. I was looking through the sticky on the best of the worst fakes and I see several examples but do not know how to tell myself.

    Thank You
    Matt

    Here are the photos. What concerns me most is that there is a biplane on the bayonet. I'd think that would be something for the luftwaffe. But why would the luftwaffe have an etched K98 dresss bayonet?

    Etchings on bayonets are all post war rubbish.

    Are they? I thought there were genuine examples known.

    All the examples I have seen are post war, I don't think the Germans would deface there own bayonets during war time, but maybe there are a few real ones.

    I think some dress bayonets are period etched but there are a lot of fakes.

    Thats probably right. My understanding was that there were known pre -war dress bayonets with authentic etchings, but not war time ones. I agree that most of those you see are fakes, but is this one plausible? Its hard to see the quality of the etching but I think the writing says the right sort of thing.
