1937 E.Pack S coded 84/98

Hi all,
This was my first ever TR era bayonet and held a sentimental value to me so I recently traded it back. Unfortunately it’s mismatched with a S/155 K Hörster scabbard, with very heavy wear and sharpening. However I don’t seem to be able to find many examples of 1937 S coded E.Pack Bayonets, and also don’t seem to be able to find it on the k98 bayonet registry. Could I check how rare (or common) such an example is? Also, is it just me or has someone scrubbed off most of the finish? (as seen from the scratches on the flashguard)
Thanks :)
WM

Question is that bayonet blade probably sharpened, which is down of value, any of the pictures looks like wrong added screws question is too are the grips correct there? Any S coded 1937 bayonets are interesting as in that year was done switch to full name. The head of screw looks strange to me, possible replacements.

Hi,
My S/177 37 in still nice condition. The frog is fragile.
Best regards

Hi Andy, got more pics of the grips and screws. They seem to differ slightly compared to another wood grip 84/98

Yes the grips are replacements, mostly done from beech wood, could be a east germany postwar production? or other replacement, the screw heads looks too little strange too much curved on sides? but could be refinished, or are different screws that were shortened on first pictures, they looks too long there. on 43? asw are normal nutwood grips.
