Australian Alexander Henry sawback bayonet manufactured by the German contractor, Weyersberg in Solingen. This bayonet has the spatulate quillon with the sawback blade being slightly offset to the grip. As is normal the only marking is the manufacturers trade mark of the Kings Head to the ricasso. There are no British inspection or acceptance marks. These bayonets were widely used throughout the Colonies and is serial numbered to the crossguard EE (FF?) 33 and another number “224” to the pommel end. What sets this particular bayonet as an excellent piece is that it appears to have been nickeled at some point in the very early stage of its life.
The bayonet is in very good condition with excellent grips and no damage. The scabbard leather has hardened with the seam stitching undone but overall is in good condition without damage. (Reference BCB A5)
