1874 GRAS
“SWORD” BAYONET & SCABBARD
THIS BAYONETAND SCABBARDARE NICE, STRAIGHT AND UNDAMAGED CONDITION.
OVERALL LENGTH OF BAYONET IS APPROX. 25 1/2″ WITH THE BLADE BEING 20 5/8″. BAYONET AND SCABBARD HAVE MATCHING, 5 DIGIT SERIAL NUMBERS (39634). BACK IS MARKED FROM ST. ETIENNE AND DATED APRIL 1879.SCABBARD HAS NO DAMAGE AND REALLY NO REAL RUST BUT PERHAPS A SMALL SPOT OR TWO. WE PURCHASED THIS PARTICULAR BAYONET WITH ANOTHER OF POSSIBLE FRENCH ORIGIN, WHICH WE HAVE ALSO LISTED. THE INTERESTING THING IS THAT BOTH HAVE THE SCABBARDS FANCILY ENGRAVED WITH WHAT I ASSUME IS SOME SORT OF IDENTIFICATION FOR THEIR COLLECTION??? AS YOU CAN SEE, THIS ONE IS MARKED “FRENCH SWORD BAYONET – WORLD WAR – A.D. 1918”. THIS APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN DONE A LONG TIME AGO. BE SURE TO CHECK OUT ALL THE PHOTOS OF THIS FINE BAYONET.
