A very nice and scarce German R.B.D. (Reichsbahndirektion) Railway Police bayonet complete with matching frog and even scarcer knot.  The bayonet is correctly devoid of any makers marks or acceptance stamps, and the bayonet is of the 'in the white' bright finished variety, it was never blued.  The obverse side of the guard is nicely stamped with the Railway Police markings of R.B.D. WT. 298.  The WT possibly represents the railhead of Westfalen, 298 the rifle number.  The fit and finish of the wood grip panels is superb, the quality of these earlier S84/98 bayonets is plain to see.  The blade has some small areas of light surface staining that could easily be polished out if you wanted too, it hasn't been sharpened or abused.  The hilt metal has some minor surface age staining but nothing serious and again, could be polished up if you wanted to.  The bayonet catch fit is almost seamless, showing the quality of finish applied to these earlier bayonets.  The black leather high quality frog is in excellent condition, no faults or defects.  The belt loop on this frog has been purposely shaped to fit the waist to hang correctly (please see image 4) and is also stamped with the matching R.B.D. Wt. (B) markings on the rear of it's waist (please see image 2).  Early copper stress rivets are used, indicating late 1920's or very early 1930's production.  All the original stitching is intact.  The very rare Reichsbahn Police knot is in very good condition, the strap and acorn have faded to a very nice golden colour, possibly from being kept in a smoky environment.  It is complete, no rips or tears just honest signs of age.  These knots alone are selling for between $400-800!   The scabbard retains about 85-90% of it original black finish with a couple of areas of wear on it's front (please see image 5), it is dent free.  Overall, a very nice and rarely seen complete German Railway Police bayonet.

Shipping is estimated at $30.00 with tracking and insurance.  Please feel free to ask any questions
