Sanderson Model 1907 British Enfield Mark Iii S.m.l.e. Bayonet Dated 9-16 & 1923:
Here is a nice, original, Sanderson manufactured Model 1907 British Enfield Mark III S.M.L.E. bayonet dated 9 16 with an additional post war check and test date stamp of 1923. The scabbard has H.O.R.T. and broad arrow inspector's stamps. The early scabbard has blued mountings that still retain considerable blue though the mountings show some OD paint likely from this bayonets WW II service. The leather is still quite good. The point is undamaged, the blade is unsharpened showing factory grind all along the edge and the two tone finish is good except for some dark spotting at the tip which I have shown. I'm not surprised about the blade because Heaven help the poor Tommy who took it upon himself to alter his equipments or allow it to be damaged. This is a decent, solid example of the M 1907 that has "been there" through two World Wars and which presents well and has a great feel. I will be listing many WW I and II items,some rare, thisnext Tuesday and Thursday. These pieces are here to give you a heads-up. I've enjoyed my collection for decades and now it is time to pass it along to the next generation to conserve. Ihave provided sharp, detailed photos so you can know exactly what you are getting without those ''surprises'' we all really dislike. We hope you enjoy this carrier! It will be carefully packed in peanuts which is the only way to get fragile items through safely. Remember, we combine shipping to save you money whenever possible. Shipping to PR, HI and AK will obviously be higher than the quote. The new USPS shipping costs are significantly higher especially on larger packages going any distance and I use delivery confirmation, which adds 75 cents. I have never tried to make money from shipping. It’s expensive enough as it is! Any extra postage over a buck is returned.
