French Gras Yataghan M1866 bayonet, u need photo what say on top of blade...
Unfortunately there is nothing on top of the blade, I have photoed all the markings. I read somewhere that the Germans removed the incriptions from some of these that they took from the frwnch and then reused them, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me what any of the remaining markings mean?
as far as i know that is only proof markings and i guess its Saint-Etienne arsenal.......
but some one who know beter tell you.
To me it looks like Chassepot M1866 bayonet, b.r.Andy
yes, a french Mle 1866 Chassepot Sabre-Baļonnette
French 1866 Chassepot. What is the Arsenal mark on it?
