Title Bayonet for Mauser rifle, model 1891
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.

The first model had a brass hilt as opposed to the aluminium hilt on this, the later example.

It has virtually all its original blue finish on the scabbard. The hilt shows normal service wear and tear, but the metal is still bright. There are mismatching numbers on scabbard and hilt, as is commonly found on these bayonets.
