BRITISH 1ST MODEL LAND PATTERN BROWN BESS BAYONET

$895.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 490-3252

This is a fine example of the earliest regulation British military socket bayonet. The Land Pattern Socket Bayonet was the first somewhat standardized socket bayonet utilized by the British military.

This early Land Pattern Socket Bayonet is a classic example of 1730-1750 production. The bayonet features a pronounced “shield” filed at the shank-socket juncture. The bayonet has the typical triangular blade that tapers to a very thin point.

The bayonet measures approximately 21.75” long overall with 17” blade and a 4” socket. The bayonet has a bright, buffed surface with scattered pitting. The mortise remains very narrow and the final cut in the three-step mortise narrows toward the end. Some early crude construction details are displayed at the juncture of the elbow and the blade. Top of socket engraved “204.”

Overall, this is a nice example of a very early British Board of Ordnance Land Pattern Socket bayonet, from around 1740.  [jet] [ph:L]
