Fellow collectors, I have over 30 Pack etched bayonets and would like to start a thread to share them with you.

I intend to show them in the following order:

By Pack catalogue etch number.
Ovals
Non-listed etches.

In some cases, I will have the same unit dedication on two different etch patterns and will devote some time at the end to show them together.

I hope that you will be interested in this. It will take me several days or more to do this properly. I will also, as much as possible, be indicating where this etch is pictured in Wayne Techet's great book, and my etched bayo bible, German Etched Dress Bayonets. I cannot recommend this book highly enough for anyone who wishes to collect etched bayonets.

John

The No 2 etch is the large anti tank gun.

This a double etched version, the obverse can be seen on page 153, and the reverse, a dedication to Anti Tank Unit 24, can be seen on page 167.

Now, the typical Pack reverse dedication etch is very plain, typically only the reference to a unit number, unlike the much more ornate and complex dedication etches found on the other makers.

This is on a short blade and exhibits the typical Pack spanner bolts. Also, note the large Siegfried Waffen TM.
