    My K98 Bayonet ( blade is a miss-match to the sheath/scabbard)
    Handel Markings two stamps opposite the side of the push button
    Left Stamp WoA519 Right Stamp WoA5*
    Blade Markings-
    Side A-
    1100
    W
    Side B- 43 FNJ
    Frog date 1944 ( the date stamping is barely legible due to ageing of the leather)
    Sheath/scabbard
    manufacturer
    Elite Diamant Werks
    40

    Sheath/scabbard 6669 or 6999
    (I am unsure which was the correct oriantation of the sheath to read the serial number as the number 6 can be flipped upside down to look like a 9)
    sheath Waffenamt ball Number
    Waffenamt
    Number 218


    Fun fact about Elite Diamant Werks,
    Before World War II started the Elite Diamant Werks (Elite Diamond Works) produced bicycles. The first Diamant bicycles were made in 1885. During the War, they also produced small motorcycles. Post-War, the Works fell into Russian hands and became part of the East German State. The company continued producing bicycles and developed alloy bicycle components, including the first alloy bicycles. Diamant bicycles won world road race championships in the late 1950s. Diamant was privatized in 1992, following German reunification, and, today, is the oldest bicycle factory still operating in Germany.

    Your off to a nice start,my Grandmother was awarded a gold mothers cross. I don't know who has it now,I have my Grandfathers ww1 iron cross and the award document for it.I also have his ww1 Bavarian war merit medal and the award document, a photo copy of his Hindenburg cross document and his ww2 wehrpas and his arbeitsbuch.
    I also have my fathers Hitler youth flak helpers eagle insignia and some medals and insignia given to me by family friends that were German ww2 vets. The most valuable thing I have are the memories of listening to those guys talk about what they went through during the war.

    Question

    I've got a little bit of that German "junque."
    Here are photos of a display I set up at the movie theater in Kansas City for the premier of the move "Is Paris Burning." in the early 60s.
    Sarge

    Well, I guess not. I can only find this one photo. Should be at least a half dozen somewhere. I ever find them I'll add to this.

    It would be very interesting if that company still some how has production records of their bayonets forgotten and tucked away some where

    My collection has spread out all over the landscape in the past 65 yrs. Started with rifles u. pistols (then MGs) and went from there. My interest is oriented towards W-SS u. Luftwaffe with the Lw being primarily Fj/pilot.
    I've also got lots of misc little bits u. pieces of all sorts of stuff. Almost had an ME 109G10-U4 back in early 58 but couldn't come up with the $$ quick enuf. Later that year I missed an FI 156, Fiesler Storch. Really to bad cause in the late 70s I got to fly a Storch and they are a really fun bird!

    Sarge, that is great, you have some great items in your collection, from what I've seen. I won't ever own a plane, I prefer motorbikes, but I will be buying an RZ20 fairly shortly, for the FJ mannequin.

    I had an "all-over" collection, but sold all the frayed-ends to afford one very expensive firearm, for me anyway.

    More expensive than my MG and rifle collection combined.

    About a decade ago I revived my boyhood interest in WWII German militaria but since this is the centennial of the First War I've mostly been acquiring things relating to it. Since this photo was made I've added a couple more belt buckles, a Prussian degan or sword, several more bayonets, and always more books!
