I have had one of these for many years. I think the "BAM 9 30" is possibly an accession mark from the Bavarian Army Museum (meaning that the frog is a good period piece) or it was made by their workshop. They do make reproductions when they have need for them for display purposes. A friend of mine that interned there had a pair of M1907 issue trousers made for himself in their shop. I'll have to dig my frog out to see if it has the same maker mark. I have not bought a bayonet frog since 1994 and all others in my collection were bought in the 1970s and '80s.

I owned one from .de sorry I didn't like it and gave it away, they show from time to time and always mint. The leather stamping,s and copper rivets? think I paid 30 bucks for it. Bavarian Frog has a necktie front in my opinion and are quite scarce.

Further information....I got my example in 1988. It is marked to a different manufacturer and has steel instead of the brass rivets. 

Chris, what is your good authority? These are at least 28 years old.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
