 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Nice example of a three-quarter basket hilt of French and Indian War vintage, also used in the American Revolutionary War. Iron hilt with serpent-head engraving at various junction points on the guard and to the counter guard terminals. Fine ray skin grip with original wire binding. Nice, clean blade with no obvious defects.

There is minor patination to the whole of the iron guard, with the exception of the pommel.

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
