SHORTENED FRENCH 1886 LEBEL BAYONET

French 1886 Pattern Lebel Bayonet
With a patinated non removable German Silver hilt
Full quillion and movable locking collar
Blade shortened to 14” in length
Complete with black painted steel scabbard.
Shortened to match the bayonet
A fairly crude shortening but very effective
The end being cut to length then hammered flat
The Frog fixing loop has been slightly bent over
The internal throat spring are worn or even missing
(I’m really not too sure.)
So the bayonet sits loose in the scabbard
Blade and metal work with a dark age patina
It’s a honest bayonet.
A bit worn & showing it’s age
But still a nice collectable example and priced to sell.
