Includes a "39" dated Mundlos bayonet, metal scabbard with leather frog, and period leather sling. Provenance: The Paul Crockett Jr. Collection

Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 50% original blue finish with thinning to smooth brown patina on the balance, and some areas of scattered light freckling. Stock is also fine with some light scratches and handling marks, a few scuffs, and defined edges overall. Mechanically excellent. Included bayonet is very fine. Scabbard is good.
