    Why was 41 overstamped 42? I guess it has a high serial number but its only in the b block. What is the serial number on the prommel? Reissued?

    Question about serial numbers

    Whey are scabbards renumbered like this and who did it? We see it quite often.

    Why so many mismatches

    Is there a consensus as to why MOST bayonets and scabbards are mismmatched? It seems an easy thing to keep them matched with the scabbard especially since the scabbard is secured in the frog which is secured to a belt. The one scenario that I can imagine is that when a soldier surrendered he...

    Why 44

    I see that the more knowledgeable collectors prefer 1944 To all other dates. Why?

    My newest treasure

    Elite Diamant

    Looking at Slashes list for 1944 in the manufacturer codes sticky i see no mention of Elite Diamant production for that year. Did they cease bayonet manufacturing in 44?

    What were these for?

    What purpose did these holes serve. Drain water maybe. During the manufacturing Process maybe.

    Question about unmarked blades

    I have a bayonet with an unmarked blade but has a single WaA519 (Eickhorn) on the hilt. Why wasn't the blade marked with Eickhorns Code?
