1866 cruciform bayos for one price. The blades are perfectly straight and needle tips, no sharpening. Both fit smoothly and perfectly in their respective scabbards. The early 1886 had the nickel-silver alloy grip, but they switched to brass as raw materials became an issue.
It also has the curved quillion..... But later that was not included as it was deemed unneccesary.Better blueing on the scabbard. The later example has the brass grip.. Weaker blue on the scab, but a nicer blade. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Militaria\WW I (1914-18)\Original Period Items\France".
