WWI German Gew98 / KAR98 SawBack Bayonet and Scabbard

This is a rare First World War issued German Gew98 / KAR98 sawback bayonet and scabbard. Both are marked with the German imperial army acceptance stamps. The scabbard is regimentally marked "B6.R.R.10.140" = 6th Baverian Pioneer Battalion Reserve Regiment, 10th Kompanie, weapon number 140. The S84/98aA was first produced in 1908 and was issued to some reserve regiments of the German army but not in large quantities. The S84/98aA was not fully introduced throughout the army before being replaced by the S98/05. It was a conversion of the S71/84 short bayonet for use on the Gew98 rifle having the short blade of the S71/84 but with a replacement pommel/slot attachment to fit the Gew98. It had wooden grips and a small hilt without muzzle ring or quillon. They were issued with the 71/84 steel mounted leather scabbard and came in both sawback and plain variant.
