    Default Third Garndfathers Bayo with M.P markings

    Ok so here is another that I do not know of. This is the one that I called a plus shaped blade. It has the marks M.P on the blade and what looks like Tf or Ft or something like that. Unfortunatly this one has a broken tip. So what is it and who made it and when and for what and how long is this blade suppose to be. Oh SN on it is 39647.

    Again thanks so much for the help.

    Lebel is the name of the person who came out with the French rifle after his name.
    The bayonet you have goes with that rifle.
    I hope this help.

    The piece is M1886/15 Lebel bayonet made in WW1, mainly for M1907/15 rifles, the series letter could be script FJ39647.
