    Default Unknown Bayonet and a Short Dress Bayonet

    Hi All,
    Below I have two recently acquired bayonets. The first is a short dress NCO bayonet, manufactured by H.Naubert. Lots of pitting on this salty example, however this was found with some other items that belonged to my grandfather who collected various knives.

    The second is unknown to me, however appears to be of German manufacture. Possibly Imperial?

    There are several proof marks on the bayo as well as the leather frog. The leather frog is also marked as being manufactured in Frankfurt.

    I've tried searching for the proof marks as well as this style of bayo, however no luck.

    Any help in identifying this bayonet would be appreciated. Thanks!

    The second one is a Norwegian Model 1894 I think

    I believe Richie B is right. The second one is a Norwegian bayonet for the Norwegian Krag Jĝrgensen rifle(Ever though about selling it?)

    Thanks, gentlemen! That's exactly what it is!

    I appreciate the offer, Vegar, however at this time I'm not looking to sell.

    I understand, let me know if you change your mind.
    Also: I think your bayonet is unit marked(Quite usual). If I am not mistaken, it says "D.R.6" on the bayonet frog. Which would stand for 6th Dragoon Regiment.

    The frog looks like german made, so probably from first contract or a rework piece? It doesnt look like a DR stamp.

    Thanks for the input, gentlemen. If not regimental markings, what would the DR6 stamped on the reverse signify? An acceptance or reissue mark?

    IMO H.NAUBERT is the distributor

    The frog is German produced, it is not that uncommon. In fact, 33,500 Krag Jĝrgensen rifles were produced by Steyr(Even though that is Austrian). I have seen a lot of German produced equipment, and as said before, it is quite common.

    Also: I am pretty sure it says "D.R.6" in the attached photo. They are usually unit marked as well.

    EDIT: Actually, it looks more like "I.R.6" after looking closer. Which would stand for "6th Infantry Regiment"
