The fullered blade is 18 ½” length and measures 23 ½” overall. The blade has just staining consistent with age. There is a small inspection mark on the blade and ‘VV560’ on the cross guard which has the correct muzzle ring. Its slab wood grips are secure and have just bumps and bruises to be expected. The steel pommel has the correct bayonet release button which functions correctly. The steel scabbard has a frog bar & ball end and ‘U429’ imprinted. There are a few service indents to the rear of the scabbard but they do not affect its operation. The price includes UK postage. BAYO 6274.
