Nazi M98 Dress Bayonet By Christians Solingen & Scabbard. Sn 11525:1 - 11525:1
A Nazi M98 dress bayonet and scabbard. The dress sidearm for military and civilian uniformed formations was designated the M98 Dress Bayonet. This bayonet represented a stylised form of the S. 84/98 bayonet purchased by the individual for wear with the walkout dress uniform and was worn by the mainly non-commissioned officers and enlisted personnel. This dress bayonet is the long version with the 9 3/4" blade which carries the rare makers logo of Christians Solingen. It has a rifle mortise and push button release. It retains the red felt in the mortise slot along with the leather pad at the cross guard. It has "Christians Solingen" etched on the ricasso. The polished steel blade is in excellent condition. The blade has what appears to be contemporary personalisation etchings on both sides. On one side it has 1937-1939 Erinnerung An Meine Dienstzeit (In memory Of My Service Time) and on the other what appears to be his name and regiment. The grips are chequered and secured with two screw bolts. It has a metal scabbard with lozenge shaped frog stud. (see 'German Clamshells' book pages 15-16 by Gary L. Walker & R.J. Weinand).
