    Default Need Help to Identify Plug Bayonet before purchase

    Hello all,
    I need help quite quickly with this.
    It is a Plug Bayonet with a marking on it that looks like the Blazing star mark of John Hathaway who produced bayonets in London from 1689.
    Anyone with any information about it and a rough guide price as i have no idea if the price for it is too high to pay.

    Regards

    Jim

    Difficult to say-plugs are much faked due to the handmade type finish and considerable value of them-handle decoration looks vaguely Indian to me but many blades were rehandled as decorative pieces in the 19th century-I would think this forum is probably not the best for getting a judgment on a 17th century item.
