Title Lebel bayonet, model 1886
Nationality French
Period c 1886-1916
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Slightly battered example, hence the price. Non-matching numbers to scabbard and hilt, but retains its full length blade, though this has now got a certain serpentine look to it! This was the celebrated French bayonet for their first magazine loading smokeless rifle, which was used throughout both wars.
