    Thought I'd show this one that was picked up at the last show.

    Not many real ones about, most are fake. In fact a dealer 3 stalls up had one trying to look like this, and etched on the back was Legion Condor......... oh yeah

    A really nice early etched by WKC. It's is the standard "Holler" style, and this makes it all the more interesting for me.

    It has a nice brown frog too

    Thanks John. It's not easy, but a friend of mine bought me a book some time back, to help me, after I got burnt.

    "German Etched Bayonets"

    Wayne H. Techet

    Library of congress control Number 20011127210

    Privately published in Quincy Illinois, It's not readily available as far as I'm aware. I have a first addition signed by the author, but it is comprehensive, and i would recommend it

    John31:

    A good place to start your research is Wayne Techet's great book, 'German Etched Dress Bayonets'. You will see the above etch along with hundreds of others, as well as photos of fakes and fantasy pieces in his book.
