'elastique' design pommel and catch and has two flash hider prongs, 1.6" long projecting forward of the muzzle ring. It measures 12 1/4" overall.

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.
