Found this one tucked away in a display case in a pawn shop. I have personally not seen a numbered example so I had to have it. I could not find any frog markings. Has the typical German mods, if I am missing anything please let me know!

Many are the variations and degrees of German reworking of the Sg24(t). Likely the frog has been on that bayonet since issued. Does not appear to have a German added retaining screw for the scabbard throat. Rather, looks like it was a quick removal of the muzzlering and trip to the bluing tank for this one. Had to hunt a bit for this previous, extensive post from 2017, but here it is:

Typical german used Vz.24 and reworked, any stamps on pommel? it should have a CS unit stamp, the frog was used with this bayonet as seen on deformed rectangular shape of hole in front area, anyway this is a frog for S84/98 bayonet. The barel ring removing and flashing of locking lug and reblueing was realised on this bayonet, the mouth area of scabbard could be reworked too but is not visible because frog. Serialing were occured on some bayonets.
