Stunning veteran bringback battle-damaged DAK bayonet
A stunning Afrika Korps bayonet with frog, brought back by a US soldier from North Africa. The bayonet is matching, unsharpened and original to the frog. The bayonet is nicely marked Mundlos, dated 1938 and still retains most of its original blueing. The bayonet was hit directly by a bullet or a shell fragment, distressing the frog, the scabbard and the blade itself. The last picture shows the trajectory the bullet or shrapnel made, most probably wounding or killing the original wearer.
A stunning original piece!
