Leather suspension for the bayonet to the German Mauser 98k carbine. Made of black leather. Aluminum fittings. Very durable. Without stamps.

The leather is oriented with the smooth side outward, which is the norm for parade suspensions, but not for field ones. The field ones were made of leather with a inner side of the leather outside. It can be used as an inexpensive version for cinema and the first time in reenactment.

Low price.

Historical reference.

Frogs without the tab, that presses the handle of the bayonet, is the original model. The tab appeared a little later (1941 in the infantry, the year before in the cavalry). 

The distribution of the model with the tab started, when it became clear that soldiers often lose their bayonets (the leather carrier kinked at its narrowest part, and the bayonet fell out under its own weight). Later the frogs with the tab become standart.
