French Model 1866 Chassepot Yataghan Sword Bayonet Dated 1867 www.swordsantiqueweapons.com


A good 19th century sword bayonet.

In its sheath it metal measures 71cms long. Out it is 69.5cms long and has a blade length of 57.5cms.
The grip is bronze with the iron locking mechanism in working order. The steel hooked quillon markings to its middle but are not clearly readable in its current uncleaned form.
The blade is stamped with clear inspection marks and the spine with clear armoury manufacture marks.
The blade is in overall original bright finish with light sharpening marks to the edge.
The metal sheath retains its suspension hook and has an all over dark patina.

A good well marked early example of the type.
