8/16/17 - This is an original WW2 production Mauser K98 bayonet and scabbard. The scabbard and blade are matching serial number and maker stamps. The hand guard is also matching numbered to the scabbard. The scabbard is fairly worn throughout with surface damage and bluing loss. The bayonet blade still has a majority of bluing still in tact, but there is some use wear and bluing loss on the blade as well. The handle is excellent with some normal wear on the metal portion of the handle. It's very hard to find a bayonet that made it through WW2 with a matching numbered scabbard like this. Guaranteed original.
