» German WW2 K98 Bayonet. Clemen & Jung. 1939 Matching Scabbard
German WW2 K98 Bayonet made in 1939 by Clemen & Jung with matching numbered scabbard.
The 251mm single edged blade has a deep single fuller on both sides and is in very good condition retaining its original blued finish. There is some scabbard wear to the finish. The blade is marked on the spine with the date ’39 (1939). The ricasso bears the maker’s details, Clemen & Jung and the obverse ricasso is stamped with the number 9816.
The steel pommel retains its original blued finish and is in excellent condition. The pommel bears two inspection stamps incorporating the German eagle. The press stud mechanism is also stamped with an inspection mark and is in perfect working order. The flash guard is also stamped. The Bakelite grip scales are in excellent condition.
The matching blued steel scabbard is in good condition with some wear to the original finish. The scabbard is stamped at the throat with the maker’s details and dated 1939. The obverse bears a matching number to the blade, 9816. The bayonet sheathes and draws smoothly and is held firmly within the scabbard.
This is an excellent example of an early war K98 Mauser bayonet by a sought after maker.
