The bayonet has a pressed steel grip from which the press stud is missing and the grip has light surface rust. At the base of the grip is a "high ears" muzzle ring. The blade had a blued finish which is dark and exhibits residue on the surfaces of both sides. The steel scabbard also had a blued finish that is worn and exhibits surface rust. The spine of the blade has what appears to be a royal crown cypher, although it is not distinct.
