A 1907 Royal Engineers Bayonet

The bayonet measures 573 mm in length with the scabbard on, featuring a 423 mm long nickel-plated steel blade, magnetic, with a sharp edge and having a semi-sharp tip. There are full-length fullers on both sides, the obverse ricasso marked with "MA" over "1907" and "1", along with an "8" and " '42" (the re-issue date of 1942), the reverse ricasso marked the British Broad Arrow production mark above a large "X" beside "OA". It exhibits mild scratches overall, common to extraction and return to the scabbard, with nicks in the blade, very fine. Crossguard with muzzle ring exhibits light contact on the nickel plating, grip with embedded wooden plates, press stud and mortise slot, the plates held in place by two screws and riveted in place on the opposite side, the reverse of the pommel stamped "5 / '47 / R" and over stamped by a "C" over "63548" and a British Broad Arrow production mark, the wooden plates free of chipping, the bayonet measuring 545 mm in length. Accompanied by its black leather-wrapped scabbard, black-finished magnetic metal chape and locket each held in place by two staples, the obverse of the chape and locket stamped "RE" between rules above and below (Royal Engineers), the locket with a frog stud, the throat plate held in place by three rivets on either side in a triangular formation, the throat itself stamped with the British Broad Arrow production mark surmounted by a "2", with a "D" at the left and a "D" at the right, the reverse of the scabbard with stampings on either side of the intact stitched seam near the base of the locket, stamped with a crown above "18" on the left side and a British Broad Arrow production mark within a large sideways "D" on the right side, the scabbard measuring 450 mm in length, the chape slightly loose. Very fine.
