German Model 1871 Dress Bayonet Brass Handle Etched Blade Engraved Blade Pre WW1. Very nice untouched original Model 1871 german dress bayonet.
Sometimes called a sword bayonet. These were used up until just before ww1 by the german army.They are fairly desirable as many got badly rusted out due to being stored in the leather scabbard which held moisture well. This is an excellent example. It has some dark spots from old. Rust but appears to be uncleaned and overall a pretty decent example of the bayonet.
It does have the minor old pitting but not terrible! Handle is solid no wiggle!Could use a little polish or clean up for display but overall geeat shape. Handle is solid no wiggle or issue!
Does have some minor rust spots and wear associated with age but overall decent. The bayonet is a worth while investment. There is one other like this listed at the same asking price but has mych more pitting and is heavily cleaned so mine is a much better price!
