In a very good condition a very early M1948 Yugoslavian bayonet
Nicely blued all over and patina on the wooden grips. No maker markings, which should be for this type of bayonet in cyrillic factory 44. On the cross-guard there a marking W and on the otherside numbered 1064. Number equal on the frog stud of the scabbard. No other markings present on bayonet or scabbard.
Blade length 24,8 cm
overall length 38 cm
The M1948 bayonet was a short version of the pre-War M1924 bayonet, adopted when Yugoslavia rebuilt the Vojno Tehnicki Zavod (Military Technical Institute), which was totally destroyed during the Second World War.
