This blade is a long Third Reich Municipal slotted Police Bayonet that has been cut down by the factory from a Weimar period longer bayonet that probably was a clamshell version, with aDouble Trademarked blade, Maker-Marked Frog & Bayonet Knot. Late Weimar period ACS Scales (obverse) and early Weimar period ACS Scales within arched Alexander Coppel over Solingen (reverse) double-Trademark. Nickel-plated hilt fittings have almost 100% fo the original plating with no lifting or pitting to the well detailed eagle head pommel with pommel slot and oak leaf embellished crossguard. Red felt slot insert is present. Reverse crossguard is stamped "S.E.I. 7" (Municipal Admin District Erfurt, Duty Station #1, Bayonet #7). Medium brown stag horn grip plates show light surface wear/age toning, but no cracks or chips with Third Reich Police grip emblem properly pinned to the obverse plate. Grip plates show evidence of being cut down during refurbishing as the original lower rivet holes on reverse plates have been filled with a brown paste filler. The original holes on the front plate are there. Factory shortened, Plated blade measuring 32.9cm in length grades EX++ with runner marks and no nicks to cutting edge. Spine of blade is Waffen-Amt marked but there is no brown leather buffer pad. Black leather scabbard shows light surface wear/nicks, but no creases, rips or tears, and no damage to the reverse stitching. Nickel-plated scabbard fittings show light surface wear with some minor "pecks" to the lower fitting, but no damage to the lower ball, and are complete with both retaining staples. Reverse upper scabbard fitting is stamped the same as the bayonet. Standard black leather, triple-stitched, 4-rivet frog shows just minor wear. The reverse frog is maker stamped, "A. Fisher, Berlin C.2, 1942" . The original Police bayonet officer knot exhibits only very light wear. This is a textbook example of this bayonet, which is original in all respects.
