Title India pattern Brown Bess bayonet
Nationality British
Period c 1810
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This example has Makin stamped on the forte as the maker, together with the government inspection stamp in the form of a crown with the number underneath. These were carried by the British army throughout the Napoleonic Wars and, on account of the inspection stamp, is either for British regulars, volunteers or militia, not an EIC example.

The condition is reasonably clean, having been carefully hand cleaned. There is a little thinness of the metal at the base of the socket, where the site notch would engage it. Otherwise, it is a nice clean piece with a few bruises and some old surface pitting here and there.

Just a brief note to confirm that the sabre has been delivered today. All is as it should be. I have to say I’m impressed with the ‘custom’ packaging, obviously essential in your line of business. I have made a very quick inspection of the sword & it fully lives up to your accurate description, very pleased with the purchase.
