1st Pattern 1910 Dated Hook Quillon 1907 Pattern Sword Bayonet By Enfield Regiment marked ‘4CT’ To The 4th Battalion ‘The Devils Own’ Irish Connaught Rangers, WD Marked Scabbard, 1914 Pattern Leather Frog & Helve Carrier. - 12378 / 12383
1st Type 1907 pattern bayonets with hook quillon were introduced in 1908, after 1913, ‘07’ Pattern bayonets were produced without hook quillon (see page 186 of British & Commonwealth Bayonets by Skennerton). This is a near mint, original 1st type hook quillon 1907 pattern sword bayonet by Enfield, complete with correct, original scabbard, frog & extremely rare original helve carrier (we have never had one of these helve carriers in stock during 30 years trading). The sword bayonet has a clean 17 ¼” steel single edged blade with fullers which is stamped at the ricasso on one side with the King’s Crown ‘ER’ (Edward Rex), ’7 ’10 date (July 1910) and ‘1907’ (Pattern) together with Enfield’s ‘EFD’ mark. The reverse is stamped with inspection marks. The bayonet is fitted with 1st pattern hook quillon cross guard which incorporates a muzzle ring. The grips are secured with two screw bolts. The pommel is stamped ‘4CT’ to the 4th Battalion Connaught Rangers (The Connaught Rangers "The Devil's Own" was an Irish Line Regiment of the British Army originally raised in 1793 as the 88th Regiment of Foot (Connaught Rangers), which gained a reputation both for indiscipline and for its prowess as shock troops and streetfighters with the bayonet while serving under the Duke of Wellington during the Peninsular War in Spain. The Regiment was involved in most of the major actions of WW1 including Ypres & The Somme. Some 2,500 Connaught Rangers were killed during WW1). The pommel is also stamped with weapon number ‘694’. The bayonet is complete with its original steel mounted brown leather scabbard. The scabbard has the correct rear seam. The leather is crisply impressed with WD arrow. The scabbard is fitted with its correct 6 rivet 1914 pattern leather frog with retaining strap and brass buckle. The rear of the frog has the correct helve strap which is attached to the leather helve carrier. The carrier has riveted fittings (one rivet on the carrier is absent). All the stitching and leather of the scabbard, frog and carrier are intact. The price for this rare piece in near mint condition includes UK delivery. Sn 12378 / 12383

EXTREMELY RARE, ONE OF ONLY 634 MADE, British Victorian 1st Type Pattern 1875 Saw Back Sword Bayonet For Martini Henry Rifles & Scabbard. BAYO 170 - BAYO 170
The 1st Type Pattern 1875 bayonet is one of the rarest English bayonets for the Martini Henry series of rifles. The pattern was sealed on the 2nd March 1875 but the blade specification was the incorrect length 18” instead of the correct 20 ¼” & only 634 were made. The standard pattern with longer blade was only produced for 4 years and 5,190 were made. The 1st type is therefore very scarce as most were later converted to fit the Snider carbine (see Skennerton's book British & Commonwealth Bayonets B188, pages 147 & 148). This example which is one of the 1st type with shorter blade, one of only 634 made has the correct clean 18” saw back blade. The ricasso of the blade is crisply marked with Crown over "V.R." (Victoria Regina) and the reverse with War Dept ‘WD with arrow’ and inspection mark. The back of the blade and grip frame also have small inspection marks. The pommel carries the number 1785 (most likely armoury weapon number). The original steel mounted black leather scabbard is in excellent condition with all leather and stitching intact. The price for this extremely rare bayonet & scabbard in excellent condition includes UK delivery. BAYO 170.

German S84/98 nA Bayonet By E. Siepmann & Co Solingen, Scabbard and Leather Frog. Bayo 165 - Bayo 165
This is the newly made version of the S84/98 bayonet with a flash guard and not a conversion. It was made by 'E. Siepmann & Co Solingen' and carries the Crown over "W" and "17" denoting Prussian ownership and manufacture in 1917. The back edge of the blade has an inspection stamp as does the tip of the scabbard. John Walter in his book 'The Sword and Bayonet Makers Of Imperial Germany 1871-1918' states that Siepmann markings have only been found on S98/05 bayonets. However Anthony carter in his monumental book 'German knife & Sword makers' states that a few S84/98 bayonets were assembled or finished during WW1 and that surviving examples are all dated 1917. This is a scarce maker rarely encountered on the collectors market and in excellent condition. The price includes UK delivery. Bayo 165

It is complete with the correct black steel scabbard and original black leather frog.
