DESCRIPTION: Standard Imperial Russian Mosin-Nagant M.1891 bayonet made by Remington in the USA, and accordingly stamped on the socket ("R"). Serial number is stamped on the socket. The bayonet comes with a very rare leather scabbard. The latter does not display any markings. The scabbard shows age and is undoubtedly original. The previous owner of the bayonet was a very well known collector. He marked the scabbard, "US Issue Scabbard". I could not find confirmation of this fact. Similar scabbards were manufactured by Imperial Germany during the Great War and by Finland in 1920/1930. The Mosin-Nagant leather scabbards were also manufactured by other countries, but in different patterns. CONDITION: Fine/Excellent. 80-82% of blue finish is still present on metal. Some scattered patina. The locking ring works fine. The leather scabbard is in fine condition. The leather is still soft. The stitching is strong. (Janzen p.164/2)

Chinese/Siamese Mauser/Mannlicher Bayonet

Price: $285

Inventory # bay_0384

Pictures:

DESCRIPTION: This bayonet came with Siamese marked German Mauser M.1871 rifle. Siamese characters are stamped on the pommel. Some sources identify it as a Chinese bayonet, some as a Siamese bayonet (supposedly for Mauser M.1871, Gew. 1888 and Chinese Hanyang rifles). Janzen believes it is a German export bayonet for Mauser M.1871 and Gew. 1888. The grips seems to be made of Asian (Chinese) oak. Characteristic double edged blade. Complete with a steel scabbard. The scabbard displays a "Diamond with 2" and some other small markings. The muzzle ring diameter: 17.5 mm. CONDITION: Low fine. The bayonet has about 45% of its blue finish. Blade has some nicks and some roughness (in its front part). The scabbard shows a couple of small dents. Wooden grips are in very good condition. (Janzen p.29/1 and 171/1)

Price: $475

Inventory # bay_0397

DESCRIPTION: Standard Imperial Russian Mosin-Nagant M.1891 bayonet made by Remington in the USA, and accordingly stamped on the socket ("R"). Serial number is stamped on the socket. The bayonet comes with a very rare leather scabbard. The latter does not display any markings. The scabbard shows age and is undoubtedly original.
