British Enfield Yataghan P1856/58 Sword Bayonet and Leather Scabbard. ED 2341. - ED 2341
The P1856 Enfield short rifle and sword bayonet were approved on the 24th January 1856 and according to the pattern book at Enfield was intended for issue to the Rifle Brigade and Sergeants of Infantry, though later other units used these weapons. See page 304 & 368 of Watts & White for reference. From 1858 the use of more machinery enabled closer tolerances to make bayonets and in doing so made the bayonets interchangeable, instead of bayonets being individually fitted to a particular rifle. This bayonet has a slightly longer leaf spring for the locking bolt and was secured by a screw and not as previously with a rivet on the P 1856 bayonet. Blade length: 22 ¾ “, overall: 28”. The blade bears the War Department mark and the crossguard has ‘2398’ stamped to it. The grips are made of chequered black leather held by steel pins. The scabbard is made of black leather with steel top mount and chape, all stitching is intact *pitting to the frog stud*. The price includes UK delivery. ED 2341. (Bucket)

British Lancaster Sword Bayonet Post 1855 British Army Sappers, Miners & Engineers 1855 Pattern Lancaster Rifle Pipeback. 20821:22. - 20822
British Sappers and Miners Units adopted an oval barrel rifle in 1855 and produced their own distinctive bayonet with a Falchion or pipe backed blade. The leather scabbard had brass fittings. After 1857 the Sappers and Miners were renamed the Engineers, so the blade is sometimes called the Engineers Bayonet. After removal from Engineer service, they became a side arm particularly for the Medical Corps. Early examples had a leaf spring secured by a rivet but post 1858 the springs on these bayonets were secured by a screw. The British Government ordered quantities of these bayonets from German manufacturers & both the London and Birmingham trade (see pages 303 & 367 No 748 of Watts & White). This is an excellent original example of the 1855 Lancaster bayonet. It has the correct 24” pipeback blade which has just light staining consistent with age, brass cross guard with muzzle ring and brass pommel with correct flat steel spring bar with post 1858 retaining screw and push button which works as it should. The blade is marked by Manufacturer R & W. Aston of Birmingham. There are visible dates and marks ‘2, 1864, G.A, 101, 5, 2, 29, 10 – See images. Its original black hard leather grips are intact and correctly secured by rivets. The bayonet measures 29” overall. The price includes UK delivery. 20821:22. (Bucket)

WWI Dated Imperial German 1898/05 Butcher Knife Bayonet Scabbard by Manufacturer Luneschloss. 21750. - 21750
The Bayonet M1898/05 would succeed the M1898 long bayonet. It had a much stronger design but was still very long. In the beginning of the Great War it came with high ears and without flash guard. The M1898 ‘New Pattern’ was missing the ‘ears’ and is characterised by the addition of a thin sheet of steel as muzzle fire protection on top of the grip. The original German First World War butcher blade bayonet was used with the Mauser Gewehr 98 (GEW 98) the standard issue service rifle of Imperial Germany. This example was manufactured by ‘Luneschloss Solingen’ (The Peter Daniel Lüneschloss Waffen-Fabrik company was founded in 1810. It originally began as a cutlery manufacturer but started the production of edged weapons in 1848. They marketed their own etched and engraved: weapons, cutlery and tableware. Lüneschloss registered in Solingen on May 10, 1881. The company continued to manufacture edged weapons after the end of the first world war) as stamped on one side of the ricasso. The top of the spine is stamped with a date code ‘W 16’ (1916) and inspection stamps. The top of the pommel has two further inspection stamps. The wooden grips are held with two studs are good and intact. The correct steel scabbard is showing signs of age related wear with an inspection stamp to the top of the throat. See ‘White & Watts’ The bayonet Book, pages 114 & 123, No 267. The price includes UK postage and packing. 21750. (Box 2)
