Title Springfield rifle bayonet, model 1917
Nationality American
Period 1917
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This is the classic US bayonet for the 'dough boys' of WW1. They were sometimes later issued, together with the rifle, to Home Guard units in WW2 as part of the American Lend Lease programme supporting Britain with arms in the dark days of 1940/1. It is maker marked Remington and dated 1917.

The scabbard has its original green stain and the blade has its original anodised finish. The condition is good average. The iron mounts of the scabbard and hilt now have a dark patina.

My order arrived safely yesterday morning as promised. I'm very pleased with my "new" additions!

Yes, arrived safe and sound, very nice, and very interesting. Have a couple of friends in the States slavering over the pictures, one of them loves searching old lists, etc. If I can tie it down more definitely will let you know.
