 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

The blade (36.5 inches) was made by Abraham Stamm in Solingen in the mid-18th century. The hilt and scabbard are later and date from the Napoleonic wars. The royal Portuguese arms were engraved on the hilt, probably in 1816 when Ferdinand VII married a Portuguese princess. The grip may be of rhino horn.

In addition to the German inscription, there is a Spanish religious insription on the blade.

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
