Original German WWII Czechoslovakian VZ24(t) Mauser Rifle Bayonet with Scabbard - Waffenamt Marked
Original Item: Only One Available. After the collapse of Czechoslovakia in 1938 to the Germans, the Czech Arms Industry was converted to produce weapons for German Troops. This included the Czech VZ 24 Mauser Rifle, which was re-designated VZ24(t), as in German the word Czechoslovakia starts with a "t".
The VZ24t bayonets produced under German occupation were made without muzzle ring and bear Waffenamt markings, with this example marked EAGLE / A80 on the ricasso. The other side has a Z inside two circles, the marking for plant II of Zbrojovka Brno which was was located in northwest Slovakia - Povazska Bystrica. The steel scabbard is also marked with EAGLE / 63 on the frog stud. Condition of the bayonet and scabbard is excellent and nearly unisssued, with just a bit of storage wear.
This bayonet is most likely one of those found in Czechoslovakia in 1972 included among some 40,000 other Czech and German Bayonets sold at that time by the Czech Government company Omnipol to Fire-Power International in England.
These are now extremely rare and a must for the advanced collector. In nearly unissued condition and ready to display!
