Title Mauser bayonet, short model 1889
Nationality Belgian
Period c 1889-1914
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This model, with a 25 cm blade, was manufactured from 1889-1915. It has nice fruitwood grips and is numbered T2161 on both cross guard and frog stud. There is a maker's stamp 'HF' under a crown, perhaps for Herstal Fabrique?

The scabbard has 85% original blue finish with some patches of old pitting and a few speckles of surface rust. There is also some surface pitting around the press stud, mostly now cleaned off.

I collected my iron cross this am from the sorting office. Thank you for the medal; as before it's a very nice one. Thank you for your prompt service and I look forward to purchasing more in the future from you and your wonderful site.

I should have written sooner, but I did want to let you know that the photos arrived safely and are absolutely fabulous. I could not be happier with them.

Thanks for the excellent service and great photos. I hope we have occasion to do business together again.
