This is the final version of the M1870 Vetterli bayonet which has had the original 20.375 inch blade officially shortened to 9.125inches and had the quillon removed.

The crossguard has ZW8763 and C.N. in an oval stamped on it. The pommel is all steel and is fixed to the blade by a nut on the top.

The scabbard is brass mounted leather and is fitted with a standard Italian leather frog. See The Bayonet Book by White and Watts, item 437 on pages 190 and 197. The price includes U.K. delivery.
