Title Musketon bayonet, model 1892
Nationality French
Period c 1900
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This is a slightly later model of the original bayonet (which would have had wood grips) with composition grips, probably hard rubber of some sort. Matching markings to the scabbard and quillon. The scabbard would appear to have most of its orignal blueing. This was the bayonet for the carbine version of the Lebel rifle carried in both world wars.

There is a little rust to the rivets holding the grips and some consequent minor damage to the grips themselves, otherwise excellent.

I am more and more pleased with the sword, and am wondering whether to do an article on it...
