Title Constabulary bayonet, Lovell's pattern
Nationality British
Period c 1842
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This bayonet was introduced to accompany the Lovell's carbine for the constabulary and prison services. The interesting and unique feature of this bayonet is the spring clip at the base of the blade, which means that the weapon cannot be drawn without the owner noticing.

The blade (just over 13") is maker marked 'G&ER' with a crown over an inspection stamp. The scabbard has a WD and broad arrow stamp in the leather just under the frog stud, the seam is still intact and the leather is in excellent condition for its age. The overall condition of the bayonet is excellent, if somewhat brightly polished.

These bayonets are getting quite hard to find with their scabbards.
