Default Assistance with German WWI Sawtooth Marking

Hi Folks: I recently picked up this WWI German Butcher Sawtooth bayonet but there are no hallmarks or date, etc... There is only one acceptance stamp on the bayonet...and I'm trying to identify the acceptance stamp crown w/Letter "B"? or ??

Thank you for your assistance/help.

Hi: Here are additional pictures but I think this is Wilhelm II from Wuerttemberg

I can't find any other markings...I don't think they have been removed "Ground off"...all around...a nice German Imperial Butcher type sawtooth bayonet

I did find another cypher on the scabbard throat but different

I do not know the reasoning but I have seen other unmarked 98/05 bayos.
Here is a site that might explain----

These acceptance stamps are usually the inspector's initial, so I don't think it will be possible to get any additional information from them. I'm not aware of any lists that identify them as to their manufacturer affiliation.
