Title Bayonet for 1891 model Mauser rifle
Nationality Argentinian
Period c 1890s
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This is a typical Solingen export product from the massive armaments export industry that Germany enjoyed in the 20 years prior to WW1. It still has its Argentinian coat of arms at the base of the blade; many surviving examples lack this, having had it ground off. It is an extremely well made piece.

Its condition is generally excellent: the blade is almost factory new and has never been sharpened. The scabbard has faint traces of original finish up at the frog stud, but for the rest the finish has gone and there is some light patination throughout. There are non-matching numbers on the scabbard and weapon.

testimonials

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
