Odd Early "German" "Bayonet" with engraved blade

Article about: I am getting ready for a show on Sat and was going through some bayonets I am thinking of getting rid of. As I was looking at this one, I relized that the blade is engraved, in what appears

    Map, a British .577 or American .58...never mind the earlier Model 42s which are .69 cal...well when they hit you..it does not matter as much as where that you might think, they are very slow moving "balls" and of very soft almost pure lead.

    Unlike modern bullets that punch their way through..they flatten and cause a lot of damage unlike modern bullets..they do not punch through bones, they smash them..and medician was not up to that sort of thing in those days...really horribible in my mind...but I have gone off track, again
    I have studied Civil War and Crimea War casulities...worst time to be a soldier...weapons where far ahead of Medical treatment

    Damn lost track again...funny only 3 of the members working on this thread..on another note.
    The British Whitworth rifled Musket was only .455 but it was the first truly scoped sniper rifle, British made, but never taken by the British Military, however some went to American Confederate Regts...they well hailed buy the Federals as Killing a man at half a mile and dangourus at a mile...and yes they were...look them up...
    So far off the original thread....

    Yes, my point exactly. These flatten and splinter (smash) anything in it's path.

    Agree, worst time to be a soldier!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Hello,

    this bayonet is a "extra seitengewehr M71", which means that it is a private purchase fancy weapon used by soldiers with the walking out uniform

    It is copying the standard bayonet used with the Mauser rifle M 1871, black powder cartridge single shooter, but the part which is broken is made of brass instead of steel for the original weapon

    The engraved blade is also specific to the fancy pieces and the motto used indicates that this particular example was intended to be worn by imperial troops such as Seebataillone, Schutztruppen or Marine Troops

    Interesting item, but in bad shape and with a broken part
