    Hello all,

    I have these on hold right now but something seems out of place. First, these are all combat frogs on dress bayonets and second, they all look virtually identical. Can anyone with a little more experience please confirm one way or the other if everything here is authentic?

    To my eyes, they look like good, late war, combat frogs. I understand why you would be suspicious with all three of them being so similar, but they look OK to me, just on the wrong bayonets. Just for safeties sake, wait for a second opinion, there may be some better reproductions I am unaware of. If I found them one at a time somewhere, I wouldn't give them a second thought.

    You can save pics from ANY site.

    Print screen key on you PC. Save pic and then crop in Paint.

    Simples.

    The frogs appear OK. But really you want the patent leather version for a parade bayonet and not a post 43 combat one with RB number.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hallo,

    yes all the frogs are ok. No Problem.

    But they belong not to dress bayontes. These are service-frogs for the bayontes S84/98, S24(t), S139(p), S95(oe), S109(j) etc.

    I'm in agreement that all three appear to be period, with the first example having white thread, and the misshaped rivet head the most interesting part, as a curiosity (manufacturing mistakes did happen). Next would be the middle one with the relatively scarce "pebble grain" tie strap (like the leather seen with some pistol holsters), although I suspect that some shoe polish at some point might have darkened the thread? With the last also possibly a candidate for some touching up at some point as even the washers now seem to be black. That said, I've seen worse. Best regards, Fred
