This is a classic Ernst Pack dress bayonet, with no maker's mark, but the 'signature' screw bolts which no other maker used. The original owner must have been in a heavy artillery unit, as suggested by the obverse blade etching. These weapons were normally only worn when off duty, but in uniform.

There is some minor wear on the frog stud, but otherwise the paint work is near immaculate, interestingly showing a blued steel finish where the paint is a little bald on the front edge of the scabbard. There is a small patch of rust bubbling through the paint opposite this. Most of the EPNS finish has disappeared off the back of the press stud and there is some minor bruising on the obverse forte of the blade. Apart from these blemishes, the general condition is excellent.

The bayonet arrived yesterday in good order. Fits my musket perfectly. Quite pleased, and many thanks for a very satisfactory transaction.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
