    British Pattern 1888 MK I, 2nd Type Sword Bayonet with Two Brass Rivets, Scabbard & Frog, Made at Enfield. Sn 10880:23 - 10880:23

    A rare British Pattern 1888 MK I, 2nd Type sword bayonet, scabbard and frog, made at Enfield. The bayonet was produced at Enfield with a very limited number of only 575,000 being made. The bayonet has slab wood grips, held with two brass rivets. This is one of the improvements over the 1st Type which had three brass rivets and suffered with the grips splitting where the two rivets were fitted close together. The wood grips have an unusual feature, in that a clearance hole was drilled through the wood grips and not the pommel. 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 the War Department 'Crows Foot' on one side and on the other with regimental marks to 5th Middlesex & 4th Inniskilling Fusiliers, and also the Union of South Africa, see the second photograph. The muzzle ring is stepped back. The ricasso is stamped with a Victorian Crown. The reverse is stamped with inspection and makers stamps. The bayonet has a polished double edged blade. The blade is in good condition with staining near the tip. The scabbard is black leather and steel mounted. The leather is in good condition. The brown leather frog is also in excellent condition and is secured with eight rivets. The throat is stamped with "106". This is a very nice example of the rare bayonet. (see page 168 & 169 Item B213 in Skennerton's "British & Commonwealth Bayonets). Sn 10880:23
