I'm thrilled to say that I picked this up at an estate sale for $40. It looked really bad, covered with surface rust etc., but I thought that a rough-looking 44 bayonet would go nicely with my rough-looking 44 rifle. It cleaned up a lot better than I thought it would! I've always liked the reddish bakelite gripped bayonets as representative of late-war production. This one has the matching scabbard and the frog intact. What do you guys think?

(Rifle is a dot 44--Brunn Brno, cul 44 is Ernst Pack & Sohne, Solingen)

I think you had a great day - it's perfect. I agree, I like the bakelite grips the best.
