Contrary To Novice Speculation

The Inscriptions Are Not The Name Of A Lieutenant Or Major

Or A Presentation Date

Bayonets May Read - Chatellerault - Mutzig St. Etienne - Paris - Oudry - Tulle - Steyr -

This Would Make For A Great Addition To Any Collection

Bayont And Scabbard Are In Good Condition

I Have Not Done Any Cleaning To This Item - The Locking Or Latching Spring Mechanism Is Stuck Had Not Tryed To Free It Up - Maybe Some Liquid Wrench I will Leave That And Any Cleaning Up To The Buyer

The Engraved Cursive On The Spine Is Hard To Read Shows Wear

But You Can Still Make out The Date 1872

T Is Some Rust On Blade & Scabbard Along With Some Pitting On The Blade - See Pitcures
