Unusual 19th Century Chassepot Sword Bayonet – Elongated Quillon
19th Century Chassepot-type bayonet.
An unusual 19th Century Chassepot bayonet – based on the Model 1866 French Chassepot but of slightly smaller proportions – probably a German manufacture bayonet. Has a strangely elongated quillon – not sure what the purpose of that would have been. With general wear to blade. No scabbard. Blade length is 22 inches (27 inches overall).
