    As the guys have stated, French Lebel Bayonet. this particular one is the first type known as the 1886 Pattern because it retains the Hook Quillion and the release button is round.

    This bayonet continued in service and was modified as time went by.
    1 1886
    2 1886/93 (Round release button squared at one side)
    3 1886/93/15 (Modified release catch and Hook Quillion Removed. You can tell an earlier bayonet that has been modified, there is a slight curve where the hook quillion was cut away. The French then made the bayonet without the Hook quillion and it is square.)
    4 1886/93/15/35 ( This is a shortened version of the long bayonet. Again you can tell a modified long bayonet which has been shortened,the blade is thicker toward the tip than the bayonet made short.)

    This bayonet was barred because of the shape of the blade which made stitching a wound difficult. Bayonets had to be made with two edges.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
