Mark, no idea, public trade with blank weapons with a blade length of more than 12 (?) centimeters is prohibited in Germany.
But at all flea markets, which unfortunately currently no longer take place, there were and are bayonets in great variety.

A simple search for "Carl Eickhorn Solingen" will lead you to the right path...

An original Kar-98 dress bayonet, with the correct Eickhorn logo.

That is a post 1935 Eickhorn TM. "Original" has the same meaning in German as in English.
