Default Short sawback bayonet maker mark???

Sorry for the photo but it is all I have at the moment. I am buying this just from poor photos so don't know if I did OK, Good or bad. But right now I am trying to ID this maker mark. Can anyone recognize it from the poor photo? Thanks in advance for the help.

I think this is a S84/98 bayonet and the maker MAY be C. Lutters & Co. Can anyone confirm that? Thanks again.

Thank you Alan, very much for that ID. Maybe after I have it in hand I can post some photos. It is a sawback blade. Metal scabbard with no frog with it. Like I said I bought it from the crappy photos for $129. Any opinions on the price?? Thanks again!

Hello
In good condition I think this sawback bayonet is around $300. Depends of the condition.

I picked it up today and trying to get photos that are viewable posted. There are no markings at all on the scabbard. Besides the Makermark there are only the two stampings that I show. They look the same to me but stamped in two places. The only 'flaw' I see is some pitting on one side of the point. Thanks for looking and for assessing what I have.

Looks nice, I think you did well.

The scabbard appears to be a WWII era unmarked "commercial" scabbard (the throat screw is on the side, not the front). Sawback bayonets weren't used post-WWI so it's not correct, but you could easily swap it for a WWI period scabbard if you were so inclined.

Hello
The scabbard is for a WWII german K98 bayonet.

Same opinion, scabbard not proper here, should be on S84/98 of 3R period, mostly Behoerden modell, when not marked on ball finial with proof. The bayonet was painted white probably, as remains are on fg and press button area. b.r.Andy

Thanks again everyone for the input. Regarding the scabbard I think I will leave the set as I found it. Regards.

It's a type 2 S84/98 sawback, probably made after 1915 (flashguard & sawback) and before 1918 (grip bolts lack cross screwheads). But not Prussian, I would say Wurttemburg from the royal cypher on blade and pommel. scabbard as mentioned is WW2 era.
