    Where I am on the West Coast of the U.S. it would not find too many willing to pay that kind of price for a bayonet in that condition. Elsewhere - who knows? FP

    No the question is what to do with this set. FP has put me into thoughts about the frog. I don't think it's fake either, but i don't know it's exact production era.
    perhaps its a production in another country? some K-98s were produced in Mexico and Spain, and plenty of other countries, perhaps the frog is from another production line. Just taking a guess here.

    Hello Berthier. I knew that Germans were making bayos and exporting them in other countries like Spain (for mauser) but i didn't know that it was happening the other way round.

    It happened quite a lot in those days, an example would be the 20mm Oerlikon anti-aircraft cannon used by the U.S. and England, It originaly was produced in Switzerland, however, england signed a contract before the war allowing them to produce their own back in the UK. Many German G98s were sent to Mexico in 1909 during their civil war, the Mexicans valued them so highly that the new state signed for their own production of Mannlichers

    The maker is Alex Coppel. 1944. Prices of these Vary depending on scarcity, just like aything else in this hobby. 140 euros is a little much for this particular maker, only because this year and maker are seen often. However, scarce/rare makers who only produced combat bayos for 1 or 2 years are very desirable and can cost up to $400 easily. So no, 140euro is not too much for certain k98 combat bayos, but for this maker/year it is a bit high IMO. If it was a Coppel double dated bayonet it would be easily worth 140 euro. Overall it is a good conditioned original bayonet/scab/frog with average wear to all the normal places. I wouldnt worry about the Frog, there are variations in stitching that were used. But who knows where it was made really I guess?
    Here are 2 frog variations from a couple of my bayos. One frog is a "supposed" Luftwaffe frog (short stitch). Notice the other one's stitch line goes all the way to the top, while the other is very short.

    Is the handle wood or bake-lite?
