    It is not a Police bayonet but a normal private purchase KS98 dress bayonet from the 3rd Reich period with stag grips. Is the felt insert in the bayonet slot still present?

    My biggest concern would be that this assembly was possibly put together post war to increase its sales value. Also not sure the Hörster tag is pre 1945. I do not know how many different tags they used pre 1945. Johnson Reference Books & Militaria

    Kilian is right, firstly i would proof the handle is magnetic or not as the Hoerster TM is not good visible on the ricasso, and the tag is of Horstator version, which not corespond timely probably with the logo on blade, secondly there is a distributor on the other side stamped which means it was saled by distributor in Magdeburg probably. Thirdly the frog is chocolate brown which is correct for LW but the Extra trodell is Heer NCO also then the combination is not period here.
