Title Bayonet for the short Lee Enfield, model 1907
Nationality British
Period c 1907
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This is marked on the pommel '8 S F // 922' for 8th Bn Royal Scots Fusiliers, which went to France in Sept 1915, Salonica in Nov 1915, Turkey in Nov 1918 and finally the Caucasus is Jan 1919. It is the modified form with the quillon removed and was the standard bayonet for the 1903 model short Lee Enfield rifle.


This bayonet has been somewhat overcleaned, but it has its original brown leather scabbard with barely visible issue stamps on the leatherwork. The blade is nicely marked Enfield and issue dated July 1915. It has a clean set of walnut grips.

testimonials

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction
