WWI ITALIAN 1870/15 PATTERN VETTERLI BAYONET


WWI Italian Shortened 1870 Vetterli Bayonet
Cut down and re designated as 1870/15 pattern
(Though I’ve also seen them as 1870/16 bayonets)
Retaining its long spring & horn grips
The only real alteration is to the blade & quillion removal.
Heavily blued blade reduced to just over 9” long
Marked Crown FA (?) to one side MP to the other
Hilt and cross guard also blued
Original brass mounted black leather scabbard
Shortened to accommodate the blade
Some discolouration to the brass scabbard mounts
Some very light pitting to the pommel
General age related wear
All in all a fairly scarce bayonet
In good collectable condition

Code: 51087
