I recently purchased two Linnenbruger Ellermann Fireman bayonets to resell at the SOS. One was the small size logo and the other was the large logo. When I received them I noticed the large oval was on the reverse of the blade while my original was on the obverse of the blade. The logo on the reverse had a frosted background in the L, the plus sign, E, and the line below. and the orientation was different. Well I guess I only have one to sell now. laugh

Terry,

That's a great variant on the 15mm L&E logo, don't know if I've ever observed it before. Now I've got to check my 15mm to see if mine is frosted or not smile

I dug my 15mm logo out, it's the same as yours in that it's also dual marked to Eick with the '35-'41 mark. I'm disappointed, no frosting frown

It's been a while since I've posted anything new, mostly because I've been busy. A few really nice & obscure items have come my way which I hope to be posting as time allows.

This one is en route to me now. I saw it years ago & didn't jump, can't say why but it must be serindipity because it's on it's way to me now. A nice early Anton Wingen logo, one I've never seen before. The best part is it's a sawback.

Thanks Gary. This was the 1st sawback by Wingen that I've seen & the 1st with this logo. I do know Bill Shea has a long sawback for sale but with the more often seen knight logo.

Billy nice rare TM.

I did have that in my list but had never come across one. I did pick up the one that runs parallel with the blade at the SOS.

I also picked up a E. Pack w/Garantie Solingen on the reverse side of the blade.

Hi Terry,

Wingen fire bayonets are not common at all, the sawback is only my second. The other I have is identical to your knight logo above with the full name, also situated parallel to the blade as you mention.

It's hard but sometimes you remember acquisition stories, my first Wingen came from Jeff Slaker (Colorado on GD). Jeff had bought it directly from a vet who took it from a store that sold such items, it's pretty mint with just a little storage wear. Oh to have been present at such a time.
