    Default K98 bayonet with tropical Luftwaffe frog...

    I went to an antique show today where I picked up a 1939 Coppel K98 bayo . It came with a blue/gray tropical frog that , I believe , are usually ascribed to the Luftwaffe. The bayonet is in pretty nice shape with some rust spotting on the scabbard. Here are some pics.

    Thanks for the comments fellas. I've encountered four of the blue frogs in the past 15 years. One was so trashed it wasn't worth pursuing. Luckily I was able to get the other three.
