The German Ersatz (substitute) type Bayonets were constructed during the early years of WWI and were designed to fit both the Gewehr 88 (M1888 Commission Rifle) and Gewehr 98 (M98 Mauser Gewehr 98) German rifles. There are several variations of the Ersatz style bayonet as they were a “last-ditch” effort bayonet produced by a wide range of manufacturers including in one case a toy factory.
This particular one has no discernable makers marks or stamps, but that is typical of Ersatz bayonets.
