    Hi Josh, the bayonet is an original parade or dress bayonet. Value is around 50/60.

    Don't be tempted to clean or oil any of these items.

    Simply wipe off any finger prints with a clean dry white cloth.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Sometimes oil can cause greying on some plated blades. Much better to use a Musuem grade wax. Not cheap, but Renaissance wax is very good.

    On a blued combat bayonet oil is OK.

    BTW I forgot to add that your dagger came from SA Gruppe Westfalen.

    Was your Grandad a British Veteran Josh? As they liberated the area. I have a SA Rohm dagger from the same area.

    Cheers, Ade.
