Scarce British 1907 Pattern Wilkinson Bayonet With Hooked Quillion & Scabbard For Sale
A WW1 British 1907 pattern SMLE bayonet made
by Wilkinson with hooked quillion, complete with steel mounted leather scabbard and a later frog. Both
the bayonet & scabbard are in good condition and would I feel enhance any
collection a buyer was looking to add to.
The bayonet measures 21 7/8" long, with
a fullered blade of 17". The pommel and crosspiece both good though show
signs of age and wear with some slight surface marking. The press stud moves easily
and retains its spring.The two wooden gripsare in good condition,
bearing the odd surface mark. The blued blade remains in good clean condition;
while the edge retains its factory finish and does not appear to have been
sharpened. The ricasso bears the makers name and pattern model with the issue
date 10 10 showing wear, notably to the second figure; while the reverse bears
the War Arrow, Bend Mark and inspection stamps. A fingernail run along the
blades edge reveals only a couple of small, slight knocks.
The bayonet is complete with its steel
mounted black leather scabbard which remains in good condition with no tears or
splits, though the leather shows some surface wear/scuffs along the edges. The
leather itself is still supple. Both the locket and chape remain secure with both
bearing the stamp M/44. The ventral stitched seam is sound, with no breaks.
Entry and exit to the scabbard is both sound and secure.A genuine and authentic item that may
interest collectors; any inspection can be arranged and is indeed welcome.Postage to the USA/Australia will be $40/Europe $32 to allow for
a tracking service (Airsure).
