Original Manlicher M95 bayonet, made in Czech factory Zbrojovka Prague

Here is an original bayonet Steyr Manlicher M1895, with rare markings and frog. The bayonet is interesting mostly because of its stamps telling aboutthe bayonet's military life. The Mannlicher was made in Czech factory Zbrojovka, Prague. Maybe after Czech republic was occupied by Germany , these bayonets were moved to Germany and Bulgaria. Before and during the WWII they were used in Bulgaria by the royal military police and
gendarmerie. 
The bayonet is 37 cm/14,6 inches long ( including scabbard); the bayonet only is 35,7/ 14 inches. The blade is 24.7 cm/9,6 inches.
On the blade stands the Czech marking "ZP" Zbrojovka Praha /Prague. There is another Austriam mark: OEWG(Osterreichische Waffenfabrik Gesellschaft - Austian  State Weapons Manufacturing Company).
On the scabbard's clasp can also be noticed the same Czech army "ZP" stamp and marking of lion in a rhomb with the number 23. This last stamp stands for the year of production - 1923. The pommel is also marked with lion and number 24.

The crossguard marked with a number 7194 - an entry number of Bulgarian unit. Below s seen one more number, probably from another army.
The bayonet completes with original WWI carrier, made of thick genuine leather. 
 
The bayonet is in original, almost perfect condition with authentic Rare frog carrier!  Blade was grease covered before we took photos of it. It was exactly this grease that helped the bayonet to be preserved in Bulgarian army stock houses for so many years .
This is an excellent, perfect item for bayonet collectors, don't miss it !
