A Rare 18th Century Brown Bess Regulation socket bayonet marked to the 77th Regiment. Worn and well used condition, pitted but solid with regimental marking to socket of the 77th regiment. The question is whether that is the 77th Regiment of Foot, Montgomery‘s Highlanders (1757-1763) a Highland Regiment who fought in North America during the Seven Years War or is it the 77th (East Middlesex) Regiment of Foot (Duke of Cambridge’s Own) who were raised in 1787 and saw active service in numerous theatres of war including the Peninsula Wars? More likely to be the latter due to the characteristics of the bayonet but I will let you decide as the emblem/engraving above the 77 marking is worn! It fits Brown Bess India Pattern Muskets Type 1 and 2 as I have tried them both.
Inspectors mark of Crown over 19 on blade and feint illegible makers mark. Overall length 21.65" (550mm), Blade 16.9" (429mm), Socket 4" (100mm), Stud to Muzzle 1.95" (50mm), Muzzle ring diameter (front of socket internal) 23.5mm.

A Rare and Genuine Battlefield find from a Peninsula War Battlefield, this is a Baker Rifle Bayonet complete less the Guard. It came from the collection of Jean Quatre Vieux, an amateur but highly accomplished Napoleonic historian who trawled many battlefields including those in his 2002 book, “The Battles of Napoleon in the South West” where it looks like the broken guard to this bayonet is illustrated on page 153 - sadly they have not been re-united!
Although in excavated condition, it is very solid, complete with spring and button catch which is not seized, and the blade is pitted and bent but not broken. Overall length 26.5", blade 22". It could be restored with a replacement guard, work to the bar slot, spring catch and straightening the blade although this would entail removing the handle grip. Guards are available from numerous sources.
There are now so many replica Baker rifle bayonets that have been cleverly aged due to the escalating prices of genuine items. Several ‘originals’ priced over £1,000 looking highly dubious when closely inspected with Tourmaline ageing as opposed to naturally aged brass for example.
A rare find which could be restored or displayed as is.

Available individually or a discounted price for all three, each bayonet is in fine condition with approximately 90% original finish. This bayonet is a conversion of the M1867 socket bayonet used with the 12.17 mm Remington rolling block rifle. This ‘89 conversion for the 8mm M1867-89 rolling block rifle meant removing the old socket and brazing a new socket in place. The join is plainly visible on all these model bayonets. This is the only socket bayonet to incorporate a coil-spring press stud. The socket measures 1.875 in. (48 mm.) long.
For decoding the inspectors markings please refer to Per Holmbäck’s excellent reference website http://www.holmback.se/bayonets/bayonets.htm
PRICE £125.00 individually or £300.00 for the three including UK mainland delivery
The sword is 33" overall with a 28" curved blade. The hilt including a solid brass bowl guard and ribbed grip are all from a Swedish 1893 pattern trooper's sword and stamped with the inspectors mark "GM" under a crown. The blade however is an old period replacement, possibly modified for sea service as it is 10" shorter than the original blade and has a single cutting edge instead of the double sided blade found on the original pattern. It is not known if the blade was modified at the time of manufacture or shortly afterwards. Further research may reveal if such blades were routinely fitted or if this is a unique modification.
The blade is slightly pitted with an even unrestored patina. The solid brass bowl is in good condition and the grip appears original but worn.
