    Default Need opinions on this Police Bayonet...

    What do you guys think about this police bayonet? The maker mark is a known variation of the Puma mark (although the photo is blurry), but I want some more opinions about it overall. Is this a good one based on these shots? If it is good, is there anything noteworthy (special/rare) about it that I should know about?

    Looks good to me. A standard Rural Police issue.

    Any issue markings to the reverse of the crossguard?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade. I'm really not sure. These are the only photos I have. I'll be having a first-hand look this afternoon and if I buy it I'll post some more shots.

    One of the things that concerned me about this is the solid emblem on the grip. All of the ones I've seen are cut so the stag grip shows through between the eagle and wreath. Any concerns there?

    Hi Darren, I looked at the eagle and it did cross my mind too. But Police bayonets are quite a study in there own right and I would not dimiss it because of this detail. I don't know enough to comment more: it could even be a maker specific item for all I know? One other detail is the leather buffer pad. Cannot say these are commonly found either. But overall I like the look of it.

    Cheers, Ade.

    That's a little under $800 so I'll pass on it. Like most collectors, we always try to buy below "retail" whenever possible

    Thanks for the input guys!

    Nice, clean example...........!

    I think the price is about right for this one,
    but I'd always try and haggle a bit !
    Regards,
