British 1888 Mark II, 2nd pattern, Lee Metford Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. BAYO 230. - BAYO 230
This is an early Edwardian, Lee Metford, 1888 Mark II second pattern bayonet manufactured for the British .303 calibre Enfield, Lee Metford Rifle. The Bayonet blade which is in good clean condition with original polish, is 12" in length, double edged and unfullered with a medial ridge running from the ricasso to the blade tip. The ricasso of the blade is also marked 8. 02 (manufactured August 1902) together with ER and 'Flat Top' Crown ( Edward Rex ). The reverse is nicely stamped with the broad arrow over EFD (Enfield) and an inspection stamp. The pommel carries the stamping NR.86 over 350. This translates into the Territorial Force County Association National Reserve (NR) for Warwick (86) and the bayonet number (350) The grips are of wood, held together with two brass rivets and are stamped B over TW within a circle. There is an oil clearance hole in both of the grips. The bayonet is contained in a 1903 pattern scabbard with the internal steel chape bit missing the leather frog. The scabbard is stamped to the rear with UNVTC 91. This is an unusual combination of markings which are worthy of further research to this scarce bayonet to the National Reserve.

*Rare* British ‘P1888’ 1st Pattern ‘Lee Metford’ Bayonet Scabbard and Buff Leather Frog. BAYO 584. - BAYO 584
This is a rare 1st patter ‘P1888’ bayonet with the early three brass rivets to the grip. This version was only in production for a short period of time as it had been found that the two smaller rivets were causing the grips to split. The MkI 2nd type had two larger rivets front and back, which alleviated the problem of the split guards. The blade carries war department markings, dates and inspectors stamps and the pommel carries the number 019. The scabbard is the standard MkI with steel mounts and leather body. The frog is a general service MkII buff leather example introduced in 1899 to carry the ‘P1888’ bayonet. See No81 in ‘Bayonet Belt Frogs’ Part 1 by Anthony Carter pages 22 and 23. A rare to find bayonet, scabbard and frog in very good condition, see also ‘Skennerton’ item B212 pages 168-172. The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 584. (Box 1)

*Very Rare* British Volunteer Sawback Bayonet & Part Scabbard. 20327. - 20327
This is a very rare volunteer bayonet made by ‘Solingen Trade’ for various colonial Governments, such as Australia & South Africa. These bayonets were not necessarily intended for the Martini Henty rifle. Early volunteer Martini rifles had heavier barrels than the service Martini which explains the 19-20mm muzzle ring diameter (MRDS’s) of many of these volunteer patterns. The blade carries the Kings head mark of ‘Weyersberg’ (The history of the company Weyersberg, Kirschbaum & Cie (W.K.C.) in Solingen began in the early middle-ages, when the trademark “Kingshead“ was registered by the bladesmith Johannes Wundes in 1560.This trademark is one of the oldest registered and is still in use today) and the crossguard carries an ‘L78’. The blade is 45 ¾ cm with a M.R.D of 20.2mm. See Skennerton item B190 pages 148 & 149. The price includes UK delivery. 20327.
