This is the scarce WW2 Czech VZ24 rifle bayonet and scabbard made under the German occupation in WW2. The bayonet carries the German military factory code of tgf designating manufacture by the Tscheckische Gewehr Fabrik (Czech rifle weapons factory). The Germans continued the manufacture of both the VZ23 and VZ24 bayonets through WW2 but not in the same large numbers as the Mauser K98 bayonet. This bayonet has a 298mm parkerised blade and a steel muzzle ring and pommel. The wooden grips are held on by 2 screw bolts. The scabbard is made of blued steel. VZ24 bayonets made under German occupation seldom appear on the market. See Martin J. Brayley, An Illustrated History of Bayonets, Pages 52 – 54. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 297.
