This is from John Walters book " The sword and bayonet makers of Imperial Germany 1871-1918".

Thank you Gary, yes that's exactly same maker mark.
Gary,is it possible that the blade could be Damascus?
I'm trying to slowly clean up the blade and looks like it could be.
Will show more pictures soon I will be done

Hi Ivan
Anything is possible at this time, I would not use anything abrasive on this blade as it has gone through another heat process and may not be as hard as it once was.

Hi, Fantastic piece. Have you determined the origin of the last two marks. If you haven't do you mind taking a picture of the part or parts you see them on so I can see the location.I'm not certain but they look French to me. Just trying to help. Thank you.Best!
