Model 1871 Seitengewehr Bayonet by Weyersberg
Brass grip sword bayonet by Weyersburg, in its original leather scabbard. The blade, approximately 17 inches long, has typical gray spots from age, top dated 1879. The brass grips and scabbard finished are darkly toned with uncleaned patina. Both the cross guard and the scabbard throat bear letter and numeric markings. There is a slight separation of the seam of the leather scabbard where the threads have given way, approximately 2 1/2 inches in length. Overall very good used condition.
