    Yes, it's a dress bayonet. Nice too in that it has jigged bone grips.
    The frogs for these scabbards are usually a polished 'patent'
    type black leather.

    Wow thanks that helped me sort out something among my bayonets,I sort of just matched everything up. here is a photo the top frog is the one i originally had with it and the bottom one(although its really hard to see) appears to have had a patent leather finish,which is now a collection of cracks.

    I was wondering if this was used by a specific service branch? Was it common? and as for the red felt i assume it was only for wear no way this was made to be put on a rifle.

    The grip plates seem to be made of wood in "staghorn design", IMO an legit "Extra-Seitengewehr", congrats !

    Such Extra-Seitengewehre were private purchased.
    The soldier had the choice, to buy the Seitengewehr, equipped with the, common, black, bakelite grip plates or, the, (more expensive), staghorn grip plates.

    A compromise was, to buy an Extra-SG, equipped with wooden grip plates, imitating the costly staghorn ones.

    It´s a myth, to term an Extra-SG, equipped with staghorn grip plates, as a "Gebirgsjäger-Bajonett" ! ...

    So its resale value should be between the Bakelite version and the stag horn grip...

    Theese are veyr nice i like them a lot i think theese would probably sell closer to the stag grips value wise i think they are uncommon

    These are usually referred to a artificial stag and the fittings on the bayonet are usually unplanted. They are uncommon because later in the war there was little need for dress bayonets. I wouldn't pay anywhere close to the price of one with real stag horn grips.

    All the best
