    Default Matching unsharpened jwh41

    So after some back and forth I was able to get pictures of the scabbard serial and makers markings to confirm it was all matching. That said this is the 2765th bayonet made in occupied France for the K98. It came with the frog, belt and steel buckle. Now I am missing only the elusive jwh44 to complete my set. Blade is excellent with original finish. This set looks like it spent 70 years in a basement.

    Looks like a nice win, a early 1941 Waffenfabrik Chatellerault. b.r.Andy

    They don't show up often in ANY neck of the woods. Staatliche finished somewhere less than 20,000 pieces in 1941 after occupying the facility. Love these bayonets from occupied France. Great find!
