Item #: BQ3293 -- An Unidentified 19th Century Yatagan Bayonet Bladed Short Sword -- $145.00
The first example of this sword we have encountered -- probably for fraternal or cadet use. Brass mounted with lots of eye appeal, having the crossguard cast in the form of crossed swords. The blade was probably originally produced as a late 19th century sword bayonet. Good period condition with minor loss of the leather covering on the wooden handle and unaltered age patina throughout, the blade with a few minor patches of rust corrosion. 34.5cm. overall.
