WWII GERMAN K98 RIFLE BAYONET & SCABBARD
Original issue WWII German folding shovels (Klappspaten). This is the last of the stores from Norway. Like many other items left in their country by the Germans, the Norwegian army used these shovels after the War to equip their own army. They painted them with thick olive green paint and issued them to their troops.
Markings: All of the shovels are marked in some way. Most all have manufacturer logos or 3 letter codes, and many also have dates and or Waffenamts. A few have double dates. There are over a dozen different maker marks among them.
These are all in USED serviceable condition. That means they are suitable to be used as intended- to dig holes, clear brush, waylay small animals etc..They have served two armies, dozens of soldiers and are 70+ years old. All are USED. Some traces of the olive paint may remain, and all have evidence of use common to any used shovel.
