*Dated WWII* S84/98 III Bayonet with Scabbard and Leather Frog. BAYO 375 - BAYO 375
The Seitengewehr 84/98 was the most widely issued German bayonet of the Second World War. It was used in conjunction with the Karabiner 98k rifle (see FIR 7358). It was a development of a design which had first been introduced before the First World War, for use by machine-gunners and cyclists. Initially these bayonets were produced by modifying obsolete Model 71/84 bayonets. However, during the First World War production of new S84/98 bayonets took place, as they were simple to manufacture and used less metal than the standard S98 bayonet. The adoption of the K98k rifle in 1934 prompted the manufacture of quantities of an improved S84/98. This 1940 dated example was made by ‘Coppel G.m.b H’ (The Alexander Coppel Solingen Company was founded in 1821. Besides steel goods the company also produced weapons. This meant that the company belonged to the most important sectors of Solingen’s industry. In 1862 the company was considered to be the third largest in the city. Until the First World War, it was in a “sales association” of five Solingen arms manufacturers who sold their products worldwide) which is stamped clearly to one side of the blade. The number ‘5349’ and ‘C’ is to the other. The pommel has two waffenampt stamps. The spine of the blade is marked ‘40’ for manufacture in 1940. The all metal scabbard is in excellent order and is stamped ‘5195’. The leather frog is in equally good order with a nice patina and all stitching and metalwork in place.

WW2 Era Nazi German Wehrmacht Armed Forces & Police Units M98 NCO’s Short Dress Bayonet With ‘In Memory Of My War Service’ Etched Panel Blade, Scabbard & Leather Frog. Sn 20926 - 20926
This is an original WW2 Nazi German M98 dress bayonet and scabbard. Short 7 ¾” blades were carried by NCO’s while longer blades (9 ¾”) were carried by enlisted personnel (see the book 'German Clamshells' page 15 by Gary L. Walker & R.J. Weinand). The dress sidearm for military and civilian uniformed formations was designated the M98 Dress Bayonet. This bayonet represented a stylised form of the S. 84/98 bayonet purchased by the individual for wear with the walkout dress uniform. This example has a rifle mortise and push button release (not designed to be fitted to a rifle, the stud button is functional but mortise often too small for rifle attachment. Other examples have false stud buttons or no button). The mortise of our bayonet has its original red felt lining (the coloured felt mortise insert denoted service assignment. Red felt denotes issue to Wehrmacht Armed Forces or Police Units). It has a clean 7 ¾” blade (12 ½” overall). There is no visible makers name on the blade and is fitted with original leather washer. One side of the blade has a crisp etched panel with Oak Leaves, Nazi Eagle with Swastika and Greman text which roughly translates to ‘In Memory Of My War Service’. The cross guard and pommel are nickel plated. The black Bakelite or Plastic grips are chequered and secured with two rivets. It has its original black military issue scabbard with lozenge shaped frog stud. The scabbard is fitted with an original period leather frog. There are no date or manufacturer marks on the frog and all leather and stitching are intact. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 20926 (box 1)

**RARE**MINT**VIETNAM WAR ERA**U.S Army M6 Bayonet By Imperial And M8A1 Scabbard With Integral Frog By PWH (Pennsylvania Working Home For The Blind). Sn 20204 - 20204
This is a scarce M6 bayonet for the M14 rifle. The M14 rifle was issued to conform to NATO requirements for a 7.62mm round as standard. It utilised the Garand action but with a 20 round magazine and half stock. The M14 differed from the Garand in that it had a flash eliminator therefore the M5A1 bayonet would not fit. The M6 deleted the stud fitting on the cross guard of the M5A1 and returned to a standard muzzle ring. It was adopted in 1957 and was in production until 1963, before the issue of the M16 rifle and M7 bayonet. This is a near mint M6 bayonet made by Imperial (Providence Rhode Island USA) and is stamped with ‘US M6’ & ‘Imperial’ on the cross guard (illustrated). It has a 6 ¾” single edged blade and measures 11 ½” overall. This is one of the hardest bayonets to find in the 'M' series as it was only in production for 6 years. The scabbard is stamped 'US M8A1' and by the manufacturer PWH (Pennsylvania Working Home For The Blind). It has the correct integral webbing frog with retaining strap, stud fastener & wire belt hanger. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 20204

These bayonets saw service from the 1860’s right up to the Great War and after with cadet units and public schools officer cadet units.

*Scarce* 1855 Sword Bayonet for the Royal Sappers & Miners Carbine Marked A.H.C. (Army Hospital Corps). BAYO 371. - BAYO 371
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 367 & 368 No 748 of Watts & White ‘The Bayonet Book’ for similar). This is an excellent original example of the 1855 Lancaster bayonet which has the correct 24”pipeback blade whit 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; A.H.C. (Army Hospital Corps- the Army Hospital Corps was raised by Royal Warrant on 1 August 1857 to provide orderlies for military hospitals, except those in India. It was the successor of the Medical Staff Corps which had been embodied in June 1855, but disbanded because of irregularities in its recruitment.) with numbers to the pommel. The ricasso is marked; with a number of inspection stamps, as is the grip spine. Its original black hard leather grips are undamaged *slight wear to the left hand side and correctly secured by rivets. The bayonet measures 29” overall. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 371.

Swedish M1867 Cruciform Socket Bayonet for the 12.17mm Remington Rifle. BAYO 370. - BAYO 370
This is an M1867 socket bayonet for the 12.17mm Remington Rifle (The Remington M1867 was a rolling-block rifle, the first rifle using metallic cartridges to be adopted by the Norwegian and Swedish armies. The 12.17 mm calibre was chosen because the Swedish army had approximately 30,000 new muzzle-loading M1860 and breech-loading M1864 rifles in 12.17 mm calibre in stock, rifles that were suitable for conversion to M1867 rolling-block rifles. It was adopted in 1867 and could take either a socket or a sabre bayonet). The standard issue was the socket bayonet and this has a cruciform blade which is in very good condition and a central locking ring. The blade is 19” long and the socket 2 ¾ “with a muzzle ring diameter of approximately 18mm. The shoulders are stamped; ‘4320 An. Ve H C.F’ (Presumably inspectors marks) with the number "6350. There is also a regimental mark of "XIX R.B" and "No 473" with ‘FL’ to the underside. An unusual socket bayonet in great condition which is not common on the collectors market and with these markings is worthy of further research. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 370.

ENGLISH MADE French Model 1866 Chassepot Sword Bayonet with Brass Grip & Steel Scabbard by Reeves of Birmingham. BAYO 369. - BAYO 369
The Chassepot bayonet was the first of the French sabre bayonets to have a hooked quillion. This design feature was quite popular in the late 19th Century, when the bayonet was considered a form of fencing. When parrying the enemy’s thrust, the soldier was to use his own bayonet to deflect the enemy blade and the quillion, like the quillion on a sword was intended to keep the enemy's blade from continuing downward; in this case sliding down the length of the rifle to strike the soldier’s left arm and hand holding the fore stock of his rifle. This is a nice example of the French model 1866 Chassepot sword bayonet (See 'An Illustrated History of Bayonets’ by Martin J. Brayley pages 70-71. This model was manufactured by several countries. The U.S.A also utilised this bayonet for the Remington Rolling Block. The steel single edged blade with fuller is undamaged with just light staining consistent with age and has numerous inspection stamps and the maker ‘Reeves of Birmingham’ (Charles Reeves Junior was both a gun maker and a sword maker at the Toledo Works in Charlotte Street, By 1850 he, Charles Reeves and his father Charles Reeves, had taken over the gun and sword making factory in Charlotte Street formerly occupied by the Sargant family. Reeves supplied the government with arms and made a variety of guns, swords and bayonets. Charles Reeves Jr was made bankrupt in 1869 and the stock sold off). The blade is 578mm-700mm overall. It has the correct steel hooked quillon with muzzle ring. It has a ribbed brass grip with flat spring and steel push button with inspection stamps and the number ‘732’ on the spine. It is complete with the correct scabbard made of sheet steel. The scabbard has no dents and has its original strap bar. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 369. (French Box)
