A fantastic M1898 German long bayonet, maker marked 'C. G. HAENEL SUHL' and date marked for 1914 below the Kaiser stamp to the edge of the blade base.
This bayonet is in excellent overall condition, with only light pitting and verdigris to the metalwork. The stampings are clear and precise, whilst the wood is in good shape with only some dried mud in the grooves. The blade looks to have been sharpened long ago in its life but the quill point remains bright and clean.
A scarce and early example in fine condition, an excellent example for the bayonet collector.
