GERMAN THIRD REICH RUBBERIZED BAYONET FROG
A rare ersatz material bayonet frog being constructed in a black rubber. Faintly marked C.Riese, Berlin and dated 1941 to the reverse. A similar example is featured on pages 64 and 65 of the new book Ausrustung Volume 2 by Roly Pickering. Alternative material items were widely used by the German forces as the war effort entered its mid to later years, this frog is in very good condition with some wear in the area of the bayonet lug hole.
