    Nybdadbpurchased this from a friend more than 20 years ago. Story goes this was one of Hitler's 4 henchmen bayonets. It was purchased from an estate sale of a highly regarded ww2 collector. We are trying to find out of this is a true period piece and not a repriduction. We're there any bayonets produced with no markings on it? We are collectors ourselves and would like to be educated on the authenticity of the bayonet. Thanks in advance. I have photos and they aren't uploading for me.

    Hi, sorry but this is posted in the wrong section, the picture is poor and most such bayonets have been ruined with fake etching.  I doubt the etching was period done, these have been kicking about since at least the 1970's and it probably ruined an original bayonet.  Just my opinion.

    I agree with Jerry....the 70's saw a lot of etched bayonets hitting the market...some quite well done, using original templates..... some with fantasy artwork.

    I wouldn't write this one off just yet as the etching appears to have certain elements that were used by the firm F.W Holler - Solingen.

    The problem with etched bayo's is that even with decent pictures it's hard to give an opinion without having the piece in hand
