Got back from the post office the other day, probably the best trip ever. I wanted to take the opportunity to share two Eickhorn double etched bayonets that I obtained from the Cashi Collection.

Before I describe them, I just want to add that the pics on Cash's website, http://www.cashicollection.com/, do not do the bayonets justice. These blades are screamers!

The first bayonet is a short model with #3220 Infantry etch attached to the 11th Infantry Regiment in Leipzig, roughly 120 miles southwest of Berlin. The rifle slot was complete with red felt insert, just a beauty!

The second bayonet is a long model with #3219 Army etch attached to the 11th Pioneer Battalion in Lotzen. This city is located in Northwest Poland now, cool. The rifle slot was complete with a green felt insert & sports a nice NCO portepee.

At any rate, enjoy the pics & many thanks to Cash (cash@cashi.com). Best wishes!

Those are very nice additions to your collection, Mat.

And, I share your view on Cash's pictures.. the reality is way better than what his pictures show.

A Pioniere unit dedication is a hard one to find...I have a one line Pioniere dedication on an Eickhorn etch, vs your two line dedication.

As always John, thank you for taking the opportunity to share your magnificent pieces. Your pioneer etch is a screamer!! They don't get any better than that!!
Best wishes,

I think it's great that when a superlative collection like Ralph's has to go on the market, that things of beauty find their way to people who can similarly appreciate them.

Great bayonets Mat & John!
