Sword bayonet - of very good detail (Circa 1850 to 1872)
- Blade 23 inches long with perfect
blade except at the end which has a minor amount of pitting on 1 inch of
tip - Pommel and guard of brass - This is a totally authentic
Sword bayonet of the period and has all the original fittings that would
configure to a rifle of the time period (Probably for a French Chessepot)
- Blade is a very impressive - bright
tempered steel - Very shiny and
smooth but never polished ( Photos do absolutely no justice to blade -
it's truly fantastic looking) Guard is stamped with serial number and blade
is stamped near guard - also has an inspector's mark stamped on blade as
well as one other spot on guard - Also along
spine of blade near guard is inscribed with the words "St Etienne 8 bre
1872" - Bright tempered steel blade is of
the heavy design and has very deep fuller (blood gutter) - over all near
perfect condition. Scabbard is in perfect shape and is not numbered. This
sword bayonet is perfect in every way except minor pits as described
above. A very valuable collectors piece!
