Description

British Pattern 1887 MK III Sword bayonet & Scabbard. Sn. ED 2197 - ED 2197

This bayonet is the MK III pattern of 1887 with no fullers to the blade. The blade carries a Crown over "V.R." and the date "88" (1888). It was probably made by Enfield but no name appears on the blade. Wilkinson clearly stamped their blades and there were on other producers. 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
