Title Socket bayonet for 1839 pattern seaservice musket
Nationality British
Period c 1839
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This, perhaps the rarest of British socket bayonets, is distinguished by having a 4" socket and was made from converted material ('WHEELER' and inspection stamp on blade). It would have been carried by Royal Marines in the period prior to the Crimean War. Perhaps only a few thousand of these bayonets and muskets were made.

The square shoulders of the blade also distinguish this from subsequent models (see Skennerton & Richardson).
