44 SGX was the post Okt 44 code for ASW the largest bayonet manufacturer. Interesting. The waamt for ASW/SGX was 519. That said that someone may have an original 44 sgx bayonet ricasso stamp somewhere!!! I have not ever seen a riveted grip 1944 phosphate sgx bayonet that was fake due to the rivets and German phosphate being too hard to replicate. That is why i feel someone may have an original 44 sgx stamp IMO.
from a friend in the BRD "All showed up at the same time. I first saw them on a gun show in Kassel Germany. Minimum 20 years back! I might have kept a few as reference."
