    Hello,

    I have a boyonet that looks exactly like yours, but mine has only one marking that I can see. It looks like a knight’s head and partial bust on one side of the blade. Would you let me know if you are familiar with it?

    Thank You,

    Joe

    Hello Joe,

    I know this marking – it is a Weyersberg Kirschbaum german manufacturer of the swords and bayonets. The knight’s head and partial bust were very often used for marking private bayonets. In my opinion you have a private (dress) bayonet S98.

    I have an S98nA with a marking of two squirrels back to back. There is what looks to be an “O. E.” under the mark. I don’t know that mark and I can’t find any other identifiers.

    Hi Sam,

    Sorry, for my delay I was on holiday.
    The signature of two squirrels and letters C.E indicate for manufacturer Carl Eickhorn.
    If I remember correctly all bayonets S98 manufactured by Carl Eickhorn were dress (parade) bayonets.
    That means you have dress S98 bayonet.
    I hope it will help you.
    Regards,
    Milosz

    Hello Milosz,

    I have a quillback dated 1902 (crown W 02). There is something under the 02, but I can’t make it out yet. On the crossguard are the letters G.F.R.5.234. Can you tell me what they stand for please?

    Many thanks,

    Ian

I would be happy to hear from you
