    Default $20 Yard sale item

    I found this bayonet at a yard sale. Any Idea what it belongs to? On the back of the blade it has beautiful writing in cursive. It is French and it reads
    Mre d' Ormel de St. Etienne Sbre 1876 (Mr. Ormel of St. Etienne Sept 1876). The handgaurd and scabard have matching numbers 78726. Ahead of the handle on the blade is 2 letters an "S" and a"W".
    Any info would be great.

    Hi Mark, Blimey theat was cheap!! Nice bayonet. It's a French Gras Bayonet, M1874 used in WW1. The Mre d' Ormel de St. Etienne Sbre 1876 is the manufacturer & date. It looks in great condition. Nice One.

    Cheers,

    Richard.
