WWI ‘Ersatz’ Turkish Conversion Bayonet and Scabbard. 19593 - 19593
This is believed to be a Turkish conversion of a German ‘Ersatz’ bayonet, by the addition of a muzzle ring to the grip (see No. 335 of The Bayonet Book by Watts & White which illustrates a similar bayonet minus the added muzzle ring). Ersatz (substitute) bayonets were made in Germany during the early years of World War I, because there weren’t enough regulation bayonets to equip the rapidly expanding army. Ersatz bayonets were manufactured in local workshops resulting in hundreds of variations. The single edged fullered blade is 24 cm in length (38 ½ cm overall) the blade has been re sharpened and is showing signs of age related wear, as is the spine. The steel grips are held with two pins and are displaying the number ‘23838’. The catch functions as it should. The steel scabbard with frog stud retains much of its original paint and has some age related marks. A nice scarce bayonet and scabbard for the collector/enthusiast. The price includes UK delivery. 19593. (Box 3)

*Rare* British ‘Jacobs’ Sword Bayonet for the Jacobs Double Military Rifle. 19554 - 19554
A very rare British bayonet made for the Jacob's double military rifle. Circa 1862. In the history of firearms, the military double rifle invented by British General John Jacob of the Indian Army was probably one of the most ambitious designs ever devised. General Jacob was a fascinating person, one of those larger than life mid-19th century characters whose career reads more like a novel than fact. He tamed great portions of India’s wild Northwest Frontier & set up civil administrations. As an improvement on the British issue Brunswick Rifle, which fired a belted round ball, he devised a symmetrical conical projectile with studs that mechanically fit in the rifle’s bore, giving far better accuracy than the Brunswick. He continued his work; to include the invention of a bullet with a fulminate nose plug that exploded upon contact that was felt would be great for blowing up enemy artillery at long distances. At about the same time he invented the double rifle, and figured that style would perfectly suit his rifling system. This double edged, fullered sword bayonet with a pierced half basket hilt, double muzzle ring and a double edged steel blade approx.29 ½” (35” overall) is very impressive indeed. The steel pommel has a working locking spring. The chequered leather slab grips are intact and showing signs of use related wear. The forte has an ordnance stamp. (Bayonet only) The price for this rare piece of history includes UK delivery. 19554.
