With a serial number on the upper part of the bayonet I think it is German made for Portugal’s k98

A contract item minus the bulk of the normally markings that is what it looks like to me also. In very nice condition the Waffenamt is probably a WaA253. FP

This piece is most real a export S84/98 to unknown country, personally dont believe its Portugal when not Prefix or suffix letter. The frog and knot was probably enhanced later. its 1937 production mostly. WaA253 on parts.b.r.Andy
