Default DAK Bayonet

A fine bayonet which did not make it into my book.

Hello,

The bayonet itself is good, and the DAK replica coating is not the original. Traces of sand on the hook and sheath have a significant difference, as the part of the sheath under the skin has a difference in color. Sand coating for so many years, can not be preserved without damage or tempering. Unless of course he has been kept all these 80 years in the hut of a careful inhabitant of the desert under a glass display case. The suspension itself (namely rivets and seam) is also suspected of a copy..

With respect. Dmitriy.

Thanks for your opinion, but must respectfully disagree. This bayonet and scabbard came directly, with provenance, from the Australian soldier who picked it up at El Alamein.

To be honest; looks more like rust than mix of sand and paint.

Please tell me if there is an opportunity to see more detailed photos of this item. If possible, please add a few photos of the bayonet itself, suspension and sheath.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Chris,
let's wait for good photos of the subject and pendants, photos (blade, military acceptance, manufacturer's stamps, year of manufacture, as well as photos of rivets, seam, pendants and fasteners) will give us all the answers.

С уважением. Дмитрий.

Goes well with this, which is also paint mixed with sand.
