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.

The bayonet arrived safe and sound this morning. It is absolutely magnificent. I am thrilled to bits with it. Thanks for all the interest you have shown.

My very best wishes, and thank you, very sincerely, once again.
