Another nice etched example! The obverse of the frosted etched blade, display an elegant bannered “Zur Erinnerung an meine Dienstzeit” inscription. The details to the oak leaves, acorns, and Wehrmach eagles are just wonderful! It is also clearly stamped with the “F W. Höller Solingen” maker mark. All of the features are crisp and clear, just the way you want to see them! The blade rates an Exc++. There are minor surface scratches and a bit of spotting. The buffer pad continues to remain intact. The steel based, black enamel painted scabbard looks great! It shows wear yet it continues to 80%+ coverage and remains completely dent free! The original throat retaining screw remains intact. The hilt has some oxidiing and it continues to hold a nice and bright finish! The black bakelite checkered grip plates are in excellent condition. They are tightly secured to the hilt with two steel rivets. The pommel has a well working button! This one comes with a crazed frog. F. W. Höller 1941 catalog motif Nr. ES 102. See Techet’s “German Etched Dress Bayonets”. Truly a beautiful etch that would fit nicely into your collection!
