WW1 German S98/05 'Butcher' bayonet - 1st pattern
A 1st pattern S98/05 Butcher bayonet, sadly without scabbard. Maker marked 'V.C.Shilling, Suhl'. The first pattern butcher bayonet has the high ears on the crossguard, no flash guards and was made from 1906 until 1915 and came with a metal scabbard. This example is dated 1915. Wooden grips are undamaged and in good smooth condition. Blade is in good condition, some minor marks very much typical of a bayonet of this age. A fine 1st pattern 'Butcher' in good condition.
