Default S 98 nA Bayonet - Year and Regiment - Info/help needed

Hey guys...

Questions...

So, I cannot seem to determine the regiment that this bayonet belonged to.

Appears to be:

7. R. 12. 234


In addition...if I am reading the stamp correctly...this was made in 1901? I had the impression these were introduced in 1902. Can anyone confirm?

Handle has a "231" (possibly "234") written into the wood. This number is also inscribed into the scabbard (not shown). Not sure the significance of that.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

I think it is
7. R. 12. 234 : 7th Infanterieregiment, Kompagnie 12, weapon number 234.
you are right; 01 suggest 1901.

7.R. is actually a Grenadier-Regiment. Your bayonet was accepted in 1901 and was probably made that year also.
