DLB-048 THIRD REICH MUNICIPAL POLICE BAYONET (SCHUTZPOLIZEI)

Quantity: 
Price:  $649.95
 
Item #29399

This is a M1929 Prussian Police service bayonet. This blade is a long Third Reich Municipal slotted example that has been cut down by the factory from a Weimar period longer bayonet. Double trademarked blade. Unattributed frog.  Nickel-plated hilt fittings with what appears to be 100% of 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 not present. Reverse crossguard is stamped   "S Wpr II9" (Municipal Administration Westpruessen, District II and Item Issue 9. Suspected II relates to the town of Marienwerder which is now Kwidzyn in Poland. Medium brown stag horn grip plates show light surface wear/age toning, but no chips. Third Reich Police grip emblem properly pinned to the obverse plate. Grip plates show evidence of being cut down during refurbishing. The original holes on the front plate are there. Factory shortened, Plated blade measuring 33.9cm in length with runner marks and no nicks to cutting edge. Spine of blade is acceptance marked */k (indicating production from 1929 to 1934/35) but there is no brown leather buffer pad. The blade is overall in beautiful condition and without any serious flaws. Brown leather scabbard appears that it was black at one time and 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 is complete with retaining staple. Reverse upper scabbard fitting is stamped a matching "S Wpr II9 to the bayonet. Standard brown leather, triple-stitched, 2-rivet frog shows just minor wear.  This is a textbook example of this bayonet, which is original in all respects.  Municipal Police Bayonet by Weyersberg-Kirschbaum & Cie of Solingen. It appears this Schutzpolizei (Municipal Police) bayonet may have been converted to Gendarmarie (Rural Police) use at some point. The brown appearing scabbard with black tones in the recessed areas along with a brown frog support this suspicion.
