Imperial German Seitengewehr Model 1898 Pipe Back Bayonet.
This is a really good Seitengewehr M1898 pipeback bayonet for the Mauser M98 rifle which was the principal arm of the German army in WW1. The Model 1898 Bayonet was the Imperial German response to the French 1886 Lebel narrow bladed bayonet. The blade is maker marked (see pictures). The spine of the blade carries markings too. This is a scarce M1898 bayonet in excellent condition. Scabbard lacking.
This is one of the nicest condition examples we have seen in a long time.
