In good condition, a French Model 1842 Carbine Bayonet, dated 1860
Model, manufacturer and date inscription to spine.
The 22 5/8 inch blade in good condition but with some light pitting towards the point, and firm in the hilt. The brass hilt with steel cross guard and muzzle ring in good condition / order; the locking pin mechanism works well. The chemically browned steel scabbard in good condition. The bayonet sheathes and draws quite well if a tine bit loosely.
Very nice above average condition example at the very nice price of £240. Please quote item reference X93. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 1360-92x17x15 (1.796).
