This beautiful conditioned dress bayonet has very good plating to the hilt and the mortise button works perfectly. On the back of the pommel beside the rifle slot there are a few barely visible taps perhaps from using the piece to tap a small tack in, but nothing that really detracts from the piece. There is an original green felt plug still in the rifle slot which is nice to find. The grip plates are the typical checkered type and are well fitted to the grip. These grips are retained with the offset rivets and spanners often seen on E. Pack examples; and, other than a little light rust this hardware still very nice.
The black painted scabbard shows expected age and wear, however, it still retains nearly all of its original paint. And, apart from a few scratches, this scabbard is very clean. The bayonet has the shorter stepped down blade tip that adds interest and an art deco-style look to the blade. The plating is beautiful with only the slightest signs of wear, a few specks, and faint scratches that could easily be rubbed out should one choose to do so. On the reverse ricasso is the hammering Siegfried character beside the firm's name and Solingen location. The thick leather blade washer is present and in near perfect condition. Also, included in this appealing rig is an original to the piece black leather frog in fantastic condition with very nice graining and finish. Superb example of a Pack dress bayonet!
