This excellent example would have sported the horse hair plume for ordinary service use and the feather plumes for special occasions. It sat between the plume and the edge of the chapzka. It is in mint condition.

...acquiring this bayonet has completely changed my way of thinking on collecting bayonets. I have become extremely fond of the bayonet... Thanking you once again for the very professional way in which you handled the money [going to the wrong account] problem.
