WW2 German Bayonets

Recommended Posts

Here are my WW2 German bayonets, mis-matched as is most cases. The bakelite handle one has the "40" stamp on the spine. The wooden handle one has "42 ddl".

Most bayonets are mismatched, I still have a fully matched example from 1939 with wooden grips. None of my WW2 bayonets have a date on the blade spine.

Dress bayonets, long and short, no maker's marks. Patent leather frogs with age damage. Note coloured slot filler, should always be present, often missing.

Dress bayonets were always worn with a Kompanie Troddel.
