Germany WW2 Clemen Jung K98 bayonet made in 1943 (43cqh code on ricasso); original metal scabbard, leather frog included. Excellent overall condition – rare this nice and complete.
Original WW2 era German bayonet for “Karabiner 98K” Mauser bolt-action rifle. Manufactured in 1943 by Clemen & Jung, as indicated by the manufacturer’s code number on ricasso 43cqh. German Clemen & Jung had always made an excellent quality product, even in the middle of the war as the resources and quality materials became scarce.
The bayonet comes with original blued steel scabbard (non-matching serial numbers 43fnj/3671 on the scabbard’s throat) and the original leather frog. The frog is in great overall condition, considering the age; the leather is soft and supple still; all stitching and rivets are intact. The bayonet is apparently unused and unsharpened with original blunt factory edge; the blade is still covered in oil. Original war-time production specimens are very scarce this nice and complete as most were used as intended.
The bayonet is about 15-1/8” / 38.4 cm overall; the blade is about 9-7/8″ / 25 cm long. The blade has retained of its original gun-blue finish; the edge is in as-issued condition (blued and un-sharpened); the tip is intact. Original brown bakelite grips are in excellent condition with no cracks or chips. The bayonet’s release button is in perfect working order; no contact marks on the pommel. Ricasso is sharply stamped with the manufacturer’s code 43cqh on one side and serial number 6772 on the other. The Waffenamt stamps on the bayonet’s butt and spine plane are WaA519; scabbard’s tip is stamped as well but I can’t make out the numbers.
Almost 80 years after it was made this World War II era Germany WW2 Clemen Jung K98 bayonet and its original scabbard/frog are in 100% serviceable condition still; this type is scarce this nice and complete. Don’t miss your chance to add it to your collection!
