    The bayo looks to me like a standard Austrian M1895 but the scabbard (where the stamp is) may or may not belong to it.

    Sorry,no help with the mark...but the scabbard looks right for a pre war (WWI) M1895,but Hungary and Czechoslovakia also made copies of these bayonets and the Austrian imported 1904 'Irish Mannlicher' which used a very similar scabbard.
    Austrian made M1895 made bayonets are marked OEWG, Hungarian FGGY and Czech CSZ on the ricasso.

    Thanks. I found this at one of the Austrian bayo sites 'Ü' in circle = Austrian bayonet maker, but it is not very specific.
