    British Pattern 1888 MK I, 1st Type Sword Bayonet with Three Brass Rivets, Scabbard & Frog, Made at Enfield. Sn 10880:22 - 10880:22

    A rare British Pattern 1888 MK I, 1st Type sword bayonet, scabbard and frog, made at Enfield. The bayonet was produced at Enfield with a very limited number of only 25,000 being made. The bayonet has slab wood grips, held unusually with three brass rivets. This being the only British bayonet to have been made like this. Two of the rivets were close together near the pommel which caused the grips to spilt. This was addressed later with a two rivet grip set. The wood grips also have another unusual feature, in that a clearance hole was drilled through the wood grips. The grips on this bayonet are free of cracks and in good condition. The pommel has a push release which operates smoothly and the side of the pommel is stamped with ""75". The muzzle ring is stepped back. The ricasso is stamped with a Victorian Crown and various regimental issue stamps (see the second photograph). The reverse is stamped with the War Department 'Crows Foot' and "W.D." along with inspection stamps. The bayonet has a polished double edged blade. The blade is in very good condition. The scabbard is black leather and steel mounted. The leather is in excellent condition and is nicely stamped adjacent to the stitching with the War Department 'Crows Foot' and "W.D.". The brown leather frog is also in excellent condition and is secured with eight rivets. The front is regimentally stamped with "27". The throat is stamped with "267". This is a very nice example of the very rare bayonet. (see page 168 & 169 Item B212 in Skennerton's "British & Commonwealth Bayonets). Sn 10880:22
