    Default Gras´bayonet by Alex.Coppel

    Nice bayo - an exact copy of french original made by Alex.Coppel SOLINGEN..

    Question stays - for what country it was done // to which country I have to list it in my collection?

    In internet I found only useless mentionings "from Balkan countries to Latin America"..

    Has anybody some more precise information // better idea?

    Nobody has to say. There are only versions.

    Can´t believe that there is no any data..
    We just need the list of countries using those Gras´rifles and then we can go further..

    One more thing - those Alex.Coppel Gras´ bayonets has very miniature marking in the spine: latin literas "ED" in oval frame.. if somebody would know to which country such marking may belong, we would have an answer.....

    One is clear so far - latin literas "ED" are excluding countries with slavic alphabet.. so most Balkan countries at that time (Serbia, Montenegro, Bulgaria, Greece) were already excluded.. only Roumania stays.....

    Alexander Coppel also known as Alcoso produced a varied amount of different type edged weapons for Germany and abroad.

    This is a Solingen Germany producer.

    Gras M1874 bayonet Alex Coppel, crown LR

    ..I agree with AndyB that marking "LR" with crown is most probably Leopoldus Rex - king of Belgium.
    Didn´t find before, that my example has the same marking too - it was just under robust cover of black paint :-)

    The availability of those Alex.Coppel Gras´bayos here in Europe also is a sign that Alex.Coppel produced them for some country of civilized part of Europe - not for some outskirts.. just simple-stupid logic..

    So I will close that issue for me and will list this bayo within my collection as the belgium one.

    This bayonet is of course debatable. One opinion is for Belgium. I'm also inclined to think so.
    On the topic of bayonets of this type (LR under the Crown) there are materials of French collectors. They showed photos of Belgian soldiers with bayonets.
