Original German WWI 12" Steel Hilt Ersatz Bayonet with Steel Scabbard & Leather Frog - Carter Type EB37
Original Item: Only One Available. German WWI Ersatz bayonets with their original 12" blades are very hard to find today. The classic work by J.ANTHONY CARTER, GERMAN BAYONETS, VOLUME THREE published in 1992 is the complete work covering all types of WWI Ersatz bayonets and cherished by bayonet collectors everywhere.
Anthony Carter's Reference EB37 appearing on Page 93-95 is the model we offer here, and it is definitely one of the less common varieties encountered. It features a heavy "parallel side" cast steel hilt with split muzzle ring & small "beak" on the pommel, fitted with a 12" unfullered blade. The crossguard is marked with a proof mark, and overall length is 17 1/4 inches. It comes complete with a very nice steel scabbard, which shows some age and denting, and is fitted in a very nice seitengewehrtragetasche (leather frog).
J. Anthony Carter died in 2001 but his four volume work is acknowledged as the supreme reference work on the subject most especially the Ersatz Volume (No.3) which was his great passion throughout his lifetime.
A very nice Ersatz Bayonet Type EB37 complete with scabbard and frog, ready to add to your collection!
