    Default got to make pick one.

    hi guys
    i am going to buy one of these bayonets but i need your opinion on them
    the first is a sanderson i think its in nice condition 130 gbp
    the second is a wilkinson with frog nice condition 185 gbp
    do you think that the frog and that its a wilkinson is worth the extra 55
    thanks in advance.

    They are both in nice condition and the one with the frog will be more collectable, but me being a tight sod would go for the cheaper one!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I don't know jack about these bayonets, but I would go for the one with the frog. It's more complete.

    I would go for the Sanderson. The fact that the scabbard has British acceptance marks and is dated is nice and actually not that often encountered.

    The frog is no big deal to me.

    The sanderson is much hard to find and the frog on the other is nice but it does not add 55 pounds of more value i would buy the cheaper one. Hope this helps Sean

    thanks for the replys guys, I was pricing up frogs & they was coming up at 45 so decided to go with the wilkinson.

    Cheers, tony.

    Tony,

    Personally I think both are very overpriced if you don't mind me saying. Good 07's are still available at under 100. The frog does not add anything like 55 to the second bayonet. Just my opinion but 07s abound at almost every Militaria Fair so its a buyers market. Regards Mark

    hi mark
    you are right they are overpriced but we never get militaria fair where i live
    so have to rely on dealers espcially for bayonets so have to pay over the odds.
    thanks for your comments.

    Tony,

    Not sure where you live but if you want me to look for one at Leeds in two weeks let me know. Lots of bayonets on stalls and as I say a bit cheaper than on a site.

    regards
