*Early Rare* British 1887 MkIII Pattern Sword Bayonet, Scabbard and Frog. BAYO 569. - BAYO 569
This is a very nice early ‘1887’ bayonet made by ‘Wilkinson’ in 1889 The Mk I sword bayonet has a fullered blade and flat bolt spring, the grip is attached by four rivets. Mk II Differs from the MkI in having a spiral bolt spring, instead of a flat one, and the grip being attached to the tang by means of two rivets and four washers Mk III Differs from MkII in having an unfullered blade and being slightly heavier. (The company was founded as a manufacturer of guns made in Shotley Bridge in County Durham, by Henry Nock in London in 1772). Wilkinson made these bayonets between 1888-89 before Enfield took over between 1894 & 1900. The blade is marked with a ‘441’ over a crown ‘V.R. & ‘89’ followed by ‘Wilkinson Sword Company London’. The other side carries a broad arrow over ‘W.D.’ and an inspection stamp. The pommel carries the numbers ‘8647 & 231’ crossed out. The frog is the later black leather version stamped to the rear with ‘B.H.E. 1978’. The leather, stitching and metalwork is all in excellent condition. See Skennerton item B207 pages 162 & 163. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 569.

WWI British ‘1913’ Sword, Bayonet and Scabbard. BAYO 767 - BAYO 767
This is a great example of the ‘P13’ bayonet, which although designated ‘P13’, fit the ‘P14’ rifle and was not introduced until ‘1916’. It is marked to the blade with ‘1913’ over ‘9’17’ (August 1917) and ‘Remington’ in a circle. The other side of the blade carries British inspection stamps. The blade is in good condition and only showing minor signs of wear. The vast majority of these bayonets were made in America by ‘Remington and Winchester’ with only a few made in England by ‘Vickers’. The near perfect wooden grips have two grooves on either side to distinguish it from the ‘P1907’. The scabbard is also an American made version with steel locket and chape, interchangeable with the ‘P’07’. The leather stitching and furniture on the scabbard are all in good condition and has been chromed presumably for parade/dress purposes. A very nice collectable ‘1913’ bayonet and scabbard in very good condition with some of its black paint missing. See ‘Skennerton’ item B239, pages 192-194. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 767.

U.S. 1943 Dated M1 Bayonet and Scabbard by Maker U.F.H. BAYO 566 - BAYO 566

The bayonet is carried in its correct composite olive green plastic scabbard with a steel mouthpiece on which is stamped the U.S. flaming grenade.

*Rare* Original WWI Dated ’07 Pattern’ Bayonet & Scabbard Issued to the ‘TJFF 702’ TransJordan Frontier Force which is Derived from ‘Lawrence of Arabia’s Arab Legion. 20183. - 20183
The Transjordan Frontier Force (TJFF) was established at Sarafand on 1 April 1926 with a cadre drawn from the Arab Legion and quickly grew to three cavalry squadrons, each of 120 men each, and an infantry unit. Its first commander was Lieutenant-Colonel Frederick William Bewsher. Other units, such as a camel squadron and mechanised units were subsequently added. The TJFF would be equipped in a conventional manner, with modern weapons, whilst the Arab Legion would, initially, remain a traditional force, looser in structure and without training in technology. Accordingly, the Arab Legion transferred its inventory of machine guns, artillery, and radios. This original 07 patt bayonet has been polished to dress parade brightness and was issued to ‘TJFF 702’ which is clearly stamped to the pommel. The blade is very clean and stamped to one side crown over 1907 – ’12 17’ (December 1917) above the maker Wilkinson (Wilkinson Sword- The company was founded as a manufacturer of guns made in Shotley Bridge in County Durham, by Henry Nock in London in 1772) the other side of the blade carries a broad arrow and inspection stamps. The leather scabbard is in good condition with all of the leather, stitching and metalwork in place. This bayonet and scabbard warrants further investigation. The price includes UK delivery. 20183.

**VERY RARE**American Civil War Era Confederate Army & Navy ‘Bowie Bayonet’ With Chequered Polished Horn Scales, Etched Blade, Cross Guard With 14mm Diameter Muzzle Ring Cross Guard & Scabbard. Sn 20297 - 20297
Popularly known to the collecting world as the Bowie Bayonet these impressive bayonets were popular with both Union & Confederate troops in both the Army & Navy. Union examples were marked ‘U.S’. Many Confederate Bowie Bayonets were made by the British Sheffield trade when the outbreak of hostilities in 1861 sparked a boom for foreign cutlery manufacturers. Sheffield cutlers reaped handsome returns exporting substantial quantities to the Confederacy. See pages 179, 183 & 193 of The Bowie Knife by Flayderman where examples of Bowie Bayonets are illustrated (we cannot find an exact match for ours which has the quality and weight of a Sheffield made piece. The bayonet charge which can be seen in image 1 taken from a contemporary war artist’s impression illustrates why these impressive weapons would have been useful in combat). Our example, no doubt a Confederate weapon has a 10” long deep swept Bowie blade (15” overall). The blade is undamaged and has just staining consistent with age. One side of the blade has etched scrollwork decoration which is rubbed in areas. There are no visible maker or date marks. It has a steel cross guard with 14mm diameter muzzle ring (we are uncertain which rifle this bayonet was made for). Its polished horn ergonomic scales are undamaged with no chips or cracks and have chequered panels. Each grip is secured by 5 pins. One scale has a sprung knurled steel release button which works as it should. The Bowie bayonet is contained in its original leather scabbard which has a brass throat mount with frog locket and brass chape. The leather has some surface scuffing consistent with age and service use but all leather and stitching are clean & intact. The price for this very rare Bowie Bayonet includes UK delivery. Sn 20297

Belgian ‘F.N. Model 1949 Bayonet and Scabbard. BAYO 565. - BAYO 565
This is probably an export version as Belgian used bayonets carry a ‘SA30’ over crown & J.F.’ and this bayonet is totally unmarked. Other users were Egypt and South American countries, so this is probably for South America as Egyptian bayonets have Arabic script to the pommel. The blade is in near mint condition, as are the wooden grips. The scabbard is blued steel and the frog stud carries the number ‘39808’. See White & Watts item 103, pages 26 & 42 and also site under the Belgium heading. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 565. (Box 1)

*Scarce* Austro-Hungarian ‘M1895’ Bayonet & Scabbard. BAYO 564. - BAYO 564
A scarce WW1 Austro-Hungarian M1895 Mannlicher carbine knife bayonet, with calibrated foresight on the muzzle ring. The M1895 Knife bayonet was made for use on the 8 mm. M1895 Mannlicher rifle, which was produced in great quantities prior to and during the First World War. The M1895 bayonet was the first knife bayonet to feature an inverted blade profile, where cutting edge faces upward when fixed. The Mannlicher M1895 (German: Infanterie Repetier-Gewehr M.95, Hungarian: Gyalogsági Ismétl!7; Puska M95; "Infantry Repeating-Rifle M95") is a straight pull bolt-action rifle, designed by Ferdinand Ritter von Mannlicher that used a refined version of his revolutionary straight-pull action bolt, much like the Mannlicher M1890 carbine. This examples blade measures 24 ¾ cm (36 cm overall) it has an Eagle and makers mark to the ricasso. The wooden grips are held with two pins and are in good condition with age related use marks. The scabbard is in very good condition with makers mark, inspection stamps and ‘23’ on the frog mount. An nice pairing for the collector/enthusiast. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 564.

*Unique* Chilean M1910 Police Sidearm Converted From French Gras 1874 Bayonet and Steel Scabbard. ED 1047. - ED 1047
Chilean M1910 Police Sidearm Converted From French Gras 1874 Bayonet and Steel Scabbard. ED 1047. This is a nice unusual conversion. It is a Chilean Police sidearm and scabbard issued to the Chilean Police in 1910. These were made up using a section of the blade and the crossguard of a French Gras 1874 bayonet. This was then mated to a solid brass hilt bearing the Chilean Coat of Arms. The blade of the bayonet has been shortened dramatically to 11.25 inches and the bayonet measures 16 inches overall. There is no mortise slot or fixing button and therefore it was only intended as a dress item. The cross guard with muzzle ring and quillon is present. The hilt has number "C2116" stamped on its side. The bayonet is complete with its steel scabbard with brass mounts which is in nice condition. These are an uncommon item, (see Martin J. Brayley 'An Illustrated History of Bayonets' book, pages 46 & 48). The price includes UK delivery. ED 1047.
