This example is marked on the blade with 1913 over 8 17 (August 1917 date) and Remington over a circle. the other side carries a British inspection stamp which has been scored out and U.S. stamped below.

1903 Dated British WD Army Sappers & Miners 1855 Pattern Lancaster Rifle Pipeback Sword Bayonet & Scabbard. BAYO 428 - BAYO 428
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 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 121-124 and item B160 of British & Commonwealth Bayonets By Skennerton). This is an excellent original example of the 1855 Lancaster bayonet.
