Default these two bayonets? (knives) worth anything?

Hey all,

Found these in my dads collection and they look pretty cool. I have found the USM8AI on ebay and have an idea of what its worth, but for all I know I could have a special one or one thats worth less..

The Frister & Rossmann knife is a bit more interesting.... I would love to know more about this knife and its potential value.

Here are a few pics:



And the album with all:

Bayonets were made by the thousands. They are seldom worth a lot of money. You see bayonets advertised in catalogs for big money but go to an auction you will see what a bayonet is really worth.

Check gunbroker and the other auction sites. I would just google Frister & Rossmann bayonet. You will find a recent auction somewhere.

I dont think you will find they are very valuable other than sentimental but both are in pretty nice shape. The top one is an M5 that went with the Garand, started making them in 53 and they made a hundred thousand plus of them. Good shape anywhere from $75 to $100. The second ones older, there were a thousand versions of them, not sure but maybe $150 on a really good day unless it turns out to be rare.

A couple hundred bucks or a hand me down to the grand-kids someday. I think you should hold on to them.

The longer of the two is a German m1898/05 bayonet, used during the First World War with the famous 8 mm. Mauser Gewehr 98. The ricasso marking stands for Actieneschellschaft vormals Frister & Rossman Berlin (Holding Company formerly Frister & Rossman, Berlin), the contractor who produced the bayonet. Frister & Rossman were a manufacturer of sewing machines that assembled bayonets during the War. The blade blanks were supplied by other blademaking firms. Some came from J.A. Henkels and carry their conjoined twins trademark on the opposite ricasso. If unsharpened, it would bring in the $150-$200 range pretty easily.
