Title Musketon bayonet, model 1892
Nationality French
Period c 1914
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Clean specimen with nice walnut grips and matching numbers to the hilt and scabbard. This is the later version, where the quillan has been modified, probably c 1914-15. The Musketon was basically the artillery/cavalry carbine version of the Lebel rifle, model 1886. Condition is generally superb with the bulk of the original blue finish to scabbard.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
