5/9/18 - This is an original WW2 German K98 bayonet, complete with the original leather frog and matching scabbard. The front of the frog has light surface wear, and the stamp on the back is very hard to read. The beginning of the name looks like "Otto ....". The scabbard has light browning and thinning of the blued finish, but doesn't have any dents or major issues. The blade is matching numbered to the scabbard "7997 a" with the reverse side being "43 asw" marked. The blade is beautiful and excellent.
