Miniature KS/98 Bayonet w/Advertising Logo.
No Maker. This well detailed example, measuring
9 3/8" in overall length was recently obtained
from a long established Virginia collection. Nickel-plated
hilt fittings show light surface wear with minor
speckling to the plating on the obverse crossguard.
Black bakelite grip plates shoe light surface with
a nick to the obverse and reverse front edge adjacent
to the hilt spine. Plated blade measuring 5 ½"
in length grades Ex/Ex" showing light surface
wear with some minor speckling adjacent to crossguard,
but no damage to cutting edge. Obverse blade is
stamped with the advertising logo "Siegen-Solingen
Gusstahl-Aktien-Verein Solingen". Steel scabbard
retains approximately 95% of the original black
enamel showing wear primarily to the lower ball
with one small depression to the upper reverse.
Attached to the hilt is an original miniature bayonet
knot with white fabric strap with two blue stripes
and yellow slide/crown. Nice original example. Exc/Exc+
