HUNGARY (ALSO SEE AUSTRO-HUNGARIAN EMPIRE)
11972 M1895 Steyr bayonet with scabbard and frog FGGY with Very unusual "Bp." with a Triple Hungarian Crest on the ricasso. Blade remains unsharpened.
11973 M1895 Steyr bayonet with scabbard and frog BFM with double Hungarian crest. Blade is typically roughly machined and has been sharpened in the same manner that Italian M91 bayonets are factory sharpened. I do not know if the sharpening on this blade is improper or not. It looks professional to me.
11974 M1895 Steyr bayonet with scabbard and frog Both bayonet and scabbard have FGGY with single Hungarian crest markings. typical buffed rework with electro-penciled number on crossguard. Blade remains unsharpened.
11975 M1895 Steyr CARBINE bayonet with scabbard and frog FGGY. Was been buffed and plated long ago. The Hungarian crest was buffed off. Most of the plating has been lost over time. Rifle front sight on muzzle ring is intact. Scabbard is an Austrian crested OEWG. Blade remains unsharpened.
11976 RG1888 bayonet OEWG with Hungarian single crest. For RG1888 straight pull rifle.
11977 RG1888/16 bayonet with scabbard. OEWG with Hungarian crest. WWI replacement bayonet model for obsolete RG1888 straight pull rifles that were pressed back into service. Scabbard is an Austrian marked OEWG. Blade sharpened but not ground.
12110 M1895 Carbine bayonet with scabbard and frog. Sight blade intact. FGGY ricasso marking with Hungarian Crest on both ricasso and frog hook on scabbard. There is no readable manufacturer's mark on the frog hook and the frog is also unmarked. The scabbard retains 90% of the original field green paint. Blade improperly sharpened with a grinder. It's not trashed but not great either.
INDIA (ALSO SEE GREAT BRITAIN and NEPAL)
11854 Mk3* bayonet with FAKE scabbard. RFI with Indian State Forces mark on ricasso. Marked as "Mk3". DP62 stamps.
11908 MkII bayonet. JU 3/43 NO FALSE EDGE.
12113 Mk3* bayonet made by RFI with INDIAN STATE FORCES MARKING on ricasso. DP32 on both blade and crossguard. Correct bayonet for Ishapore 2A rifle.

12559 MkII bayonet. NWR 42. NO FALSE EDGE
12591 Mk3* bayonet with Indian State Forces Ricasso Marking. RFI 4/44. DP62. Actually stamped "Mk3" but has false edge so should have the "*".
12612 Square pommel Mk3* bayonet with scabbard. Has Indian State Forces marking on ricasso. Actually stamped "Mk2*" with the * denoting the false edge but with the wrong model number. The original marking must have been "MkII*" as most MkIII series bayonets were marked with the nomenclature that was already on the blade blanks. Whoever did the refurbishment must have just copied what they saw when they changed the roman numerals to the "arabic" type and added "2" instead of "3". Scabbard is uniquely Indian with an unusual double flared lip frog hook. Opposite ricasso marked FR62 for "Factory Refit 1962"
11874 M1871/87 bayonet with 11 1/2" blade. Missing one grip screw and locking catch. Blade bent at tip. Really poor shape but still a rare bayonet to fill a hole in your collection. I believe these bayonets were shortened to this length after the M1891 Carcano and it's bayonet of the same length were adopted in 1892. This is not the more common WWI version with 9 1/2" blade.
11875 M1871/87/15 bayonet with scabbard. TORINO.
11969 M1891 bayonet with fluted steel scabbard. CR maker mark on the back of the muzzle ring stem of the crossguard. Muzzle ring is cracked but the bayonet still mounts and dismounts smoothly from the rifle and will display just fine. Blade edge has several small nicks. Value is really in the scabbard. The only negative to the scabbard is the dent in the back that is visible in the pictures.

I believe these bayonets were shortened to this length after the M1891 Carcano and it's bayonet of the same length were adopted in 1892. This is not the more common WWI version with 9 1/2" blade.
12125 M1891 bayonet with fluted steel scabbard.
12155 M1938 FIXED BLADE bayonet. This is the final purpose built version and not a conversion of an earlier folding model. "S.A. POL???" maker mark. Blade remains unsharpened and plumb blued.
12176 M1891 bayonet with fluted steel scabbard. Crown over "TA" on ricasso. Bayonet is in overall poor condition. Value is really in the scabbard which is in good condition.

11872 T30 bayonet with scabbard MUKDEN (HOTEN) LB-168, Variation C, 51st Series
11873 T30 bayonet converted to T18 Murata for training. Identical to LB-64 for the T22 but with a slightly over 17mm MRID for the T18. This variant does not appear in LaBar. Blade was an early square fullered Tokyo arsenal. Other that the stacked cannon ball ricasso marking none of the original T30 marks remain. The butt of the pommel bears the Kanji number "3" above "1" (not the same thing as "31"). Pitted areas all over and no scabbard but bayonet remains serviceable with an unsharpened blade.

12123 T18 Murata bayonet scabbard throatpiece fitting only. Complete with all pins, springs and faceplate. Mostly dark with rust staining and there is pitting on the frogstud. If you have the scabbard leather and tip here is your chance to complete it.
