Ahh the mauser should not be there sorry.
Might be Canadian , Ross Rifle I think . But I'm not really a bayonet guy .
thank you, not many answers to this one.
What you have is a British MKI Type 2 Lee-Metford Pattern 1888 Bayonet. Go to this website and you will see Lee-Metford Pattern 1888 Bayonets - Mark I to III all. In its present condition I’d have no idea what it is worth, but for a tenner not too shabby either.
wow thanks i am on it not bothered about value its staying here,
Happy to oblige.
Scabbards appear to be some what difficult to obtain, thanks for the link did not realise just how old these are plus learned that back to back R `s meant the bayo was sold out of service.
Sometimes, there’s a wealth of information to be found on British weapons and blades. Unit(s) of assignment, other members of the Commonwealth’s acceptance stamps, sold out of service stamps, inspection stamps/proofs, and armorer’s modification dates etc. It gets pretty busy (at times) on some of their older pieces.
In the case of P1888 Bayos, those that are unit marked to British Units that served in the Second Anglo-Boer War (1899–1902), typically bring a seller’s premium.
Thanks buddie there are lots of marks on it I will try to make sense of them
