    Default Opinions Needed on 2 swords and 1 bayonet

    Hello all,

    I was recently offered these two swords and bayonet. One sword seems to be a Japanese calvary sword. The bayonet is a K98 combat bayo, but the scabbard appears to be a quality handmade leather variant. Whether or not it's field-made or post war remains to be seen.

    The second sword is a mystery to me!

    Any help with identifying these edged weapons and letting me know how much they're worth (so I don't get ripped off!) would be greatly appreciated!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR TIME AND CONSIDERATION!

    Here is what I assume is a Japanese cavalry sword:

    The last sword is a model 1889 Prussian officer's sword. With that scabbard it's worth about $250-$300. I used to have one of them, they are very pretty swords.

    Thanks, Mo!

    I found this on the Collector's Guild. It looks like a match for the first sword I posted:

    The Bayonet is a SG84/98 most commonly known as K98 Bayonet.
    The sheath looks homemade. As you know it came with a metal scabbard.
