Seitengewehr 98/05 n.A.

Finnaly I got my first S98/05 n.A. butcher bayonnet today. Mark n. A. means Neuer Art because in 1915 it was decided to fit a steel flash guard (Schutzbleche) to the back of the bayonet to protect the new cheaper two pieces grip.

On the blade is just MAGDEBURG, below (? uh??) S?C.

It is 100 years from the German and Austro-Hungarian victory near Kobarid (in Slovenia) on the Isonzo Front, when joined forces defeated Italian Army and push them to the Piava river.

According to this site (http://worldbayonets.com/Misc__Pages/Im ... kings.html) it's made by H. Mundlos & Co, but I'm no expert at all. ^_^

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the link.
I found it, because I have additional data. I cleaned it a little and found markings. SOLINGEN.
It is made by Richard Abr. Herder, Solingen. MAGDEBURG

Thanks!
