    Marine Seitengewehr m.1911 with marking to the 1st Torpedo-Division. These were made by Simson and have a blade profile similar to the 98/05, but longer at 17". Most are found unit marked to Torpedo-Divisions or Minen Abteilung.

    You're very welcome. My main focus for the last 10 years or so has been regiment marked weapons.

    Here's an interesting pair of shortened Imperial Navy sg98. The Erfurt sg98aA is marked to the II Seebataillon (cancelled marking to the Ersatz Seebataillon) and the Simson sg98nA is marked to the II Matrosen Division (scabbard marked to I Seebataillon) The Simson has a Naval M over 07 date on the blade spine.

    Bayonet S98/05 old Pattern

    ERFURT, W11

    W. K. 2498.

    Werft Kiel, Nr. 2498 - Navy Dockyard Kiel, no. 2498.

    Navy bayonets witch matching numbers are nearly impossible to find. I dont know why exactly but they must have been mixing bayonets and scabbards arround a lot during WW1.

    Very nice. Navy used 98/05 are tough to find.

    Continuing with the Navy markings is this sg98nA originally issued to Werft Kiel and later to the V. Matrosen-Artillerie-Abteilung. It's part of the first Simson Naval contract and was likely produced in 1902. There's a single fraktur marking on the blade spine unlike the later Simson Naval contract examples which have a crowned Marine M over 1906 or 1907 date.
