I was wondering if you guys/gals could help ID and figure out a value on this sawback bayonet.
the markings on it are as follows
on the back side of the blade is a crown over a "W" over a "14" over a weird looking symbol (I know this sounds stupid, but it looks like an octopus standing up. LOL) there are also 2 small symbols at the hilt.
it is in a metal and leather scabbard.
German 98 Mauser bayonet-W for Wilhelm II, maybe 14 for date? "Butcher" or "saw back" nicknames.
CG Haenel manufactured in Suhl, Germany. look here
thanks for the info, any ideas on value?
