British 1856/58 Sword Bayonet and Scabbard. BAYO 771. - BAYO 771
This is a good example of the 1856/58 sword bayonet maker ‘A & A.S’ (A & A Schnitzler Solingen).

This bayonet has a slightly longer leaf spring for the locking bolt and was secured by a screw and not as previously with a rivet on the P 1856 bayonet. The bayonet is 28 inches long with a blade length of 22 Ύ inches. The blade has minor signs of age related wear. The grips are made of chequered black leather held by steel pins. The scabbard is made of black double stitched leather with steel top mount and chape. (See Skennerton page 114-115- B151) The price includes UK delivery. BAYO 771.
