Another etch with no catalogue number is the communications crew etch shown on page 164.

This is a long, single etch, spanner bolted item with the small Pack TM.

It is rated Rare in Wayne's book.

On pages 66 and 67 of Wayne's book, you will see pictures of a special order Pack etch dedicated to a Flak Artillery School located in or around Rerik.

This is on a long blade, is single etched with spanner bolts and has the large Siegfried TM.

Neat, eh?

This last of the unnumbered and special order etches is thought to be one for the large cannons of the coastal artillery.

I was lucky enough at one of the shows (the SOS in 2010, I think) to see three of these together ... mine and two others.

All three were on long blades, single etched, Pioniere hilted, riveted and with the large Siegfried TM.

Well, we are on the home stretch with only the Pack Ovals to go from here.

John

John,

Your collection is always outstanding. And it's been a pleasure to watch it grow. I've been to Canada three or four times in my life. Vancouver, twice, east coast, once if I remember right. How about we do the SOS next year, if I can make it. And we'll see if we can get some other guys to go along with. I'll make it a point to get up to your neck of the woods to see your collection some day. Houston has a collection I'd love to see. I've got a thing for the honor bayonettes. Unfortunately, I only have one. It's a first war and doesn't bring the cash like a second war would.

Thanks for some of the previews I've been able to see. I can't wait to see your collection.

Steve

Steven:

I would love to have you visit and share my collection with you.

I typically try to do the shows. Right now, I have booked the MAX in Sept, haven't yet booked the SOS next year. It would be great to see you and the rest of the bayo guys at any time in any place.

And, thank you for your kind words on my collection.

I only have a few Packs left to show.

John

The Pack Oval Neutral etch is an eagle over a helmet pattern inside of an oval. You can see pics of this on page 156 of Wayne's great book.

This is on a long blade, single etched with spanner bolts and sporting the large Siegfried TM.

If memory serves me well, I got this one from Ron Weinand.

The Oval Bugler etch, seen on page 157, was probably designed for use by any service.

Mine is a long, single etched, stag gripped with spanner bolts and the large Siegfried TM. It is also a blued version which you can see pictured on page 85.

This one came from Ron as well.

The Oval Anti Tank etch is pictured on page 159.

The one that I have to show is on a long blade, single etched, spanner bolted with the large Siegfried TM. It also is a blued version, seen on page 87.

I got this one from the Etch Man himself, Wayne Techet.

The Oval Panzer etch is one of the hardest etch patterns to find.

The pattern itself is pictured in Wayne's book on page 155.

The actual bayonet that I am showing here is pictured in the book, German Clamshells and Other Bayonets, by Gary Walker and Ron Weinand on pages 62-63.

This bayonet is on a short blade, is double etched, has the usual spanner bolts and sports the small Pack TM.

The reverse dedication is to the name 'Hermann Weiser' and the lettering to this is in gold.

This, too, came from Ron Weinand. I think that the mortgage I needed to take out to buy this is almost paid off now wink

It is a real beauty and surely a one-of-a-kind. BTW, the Oval Panzer is my avatar that I have used on GDC for the past year.
