Thanks Denny. I also have three here that are just named, and an artillery as well a Panzer. I'll have to get with Wotan on some of the grammer, I'm not too fond of it. Anything of that or SS run from first, then ask questions. Smile. I guess I'm the only idiot that has more than one of these. I know what Wayne means when he says he loves this stuff. I guess just another addictive personality here.

Steve.

Hello Steve and Denny -

Thanks for all the input so far on this very interesting thread. I have noticed a kind of similarity in all of these different individual pieces... each bayonet is relatively simple and personal in both style of lettering and their etching technique. Even though they are all from different military units, they appear to have a similar method. Up until now, mine was the only bayonet where I have seen this individual style of etching recording the soldier's Dienstzeit. Also, I would have thought that it was Very against regulations for an elisted man to make these kind of additions to government equipment. By the way, now that I have seen these other bayonet etchings, I am no longer concerned with the way he made his (3's).

Good to hear from you Jerry. I thought you forgot about the thread. Don't sweat the 3's, look at all the other numbers and the style of the lettering. I like your piece. It has a lot going on with it. European collectors can help you with sorting out with what it can tell you. There's great guy's on this site. Steve.

Well, time to bring it up again. 9 years later, I am now planning to sell this fascinating bayonet. Are there any other interesting discoveries collectors have found since then?

How can you tell if these sometimes crude 'Engravings' are not post war done?

With Etched Dress Bayonets we have known period manufacturers reference as a guide to their originality.

You cannot positively prove that the "engravings" were not done postwar. However, by numerous comparisons to the many other original wartime versions, many of which have been shown here in this thread and other sources, you can determine the exact similarities. This can help you answer the originality or not.

I am fairly certain this one is pre wartime.

Jerry
