This is the 2nd model of the M1884/98 with a flash guard and new pommel shape. The blade has the trademark of 'Gottlieb Hammesfahr Solingen Foche with a pyramid and cross logo. The rips have brass letters "SLII" affixed to one side which presumably was a personalisation by the soldier to denote his regimental allegiance. They are contemporary to the piece and are very attractive. The pommel and crossguard are lightly pitted but this does not detract from the overall appearance. This is a scarce bayonet from WW1. (see White & Watts 'Bayonet Book' Pages 115 & 129 item 286). The price includes UK delivery.
