The top edge and reverse of the blade carry inspection marks and the broad arrow over "W.D." There are also inspection marks on the tang and a number "46" on the pommel end. The polished steel blade is in very good condition and measures 18 1/4" long. The grips are secured with two steel rivets. The pommel has a push button release and is stamped with the number10522. It is complete with a brass mounted scabbard which has a small number 7 on it near to the outside edge. The scabbard chaff is stamped CHF Crown over I OO . Please see Skennerton's Bayonet Book, Pages 160 to 166 and page 338 (Indian section) regarding these brass mounted scabbards. The price includes Uk delivery. Sn. ED 2197
