WW1 American Winchester P1917 Bayonet, Scabbard And Frog. Sn. 14931:6 - 14931:6
This is an American WW1 Pattern 1917 Bayonet, scabbard and frog for the U.S. M17 rifle in 30.06 calibre. The bayonet is marked on the blade with 1917 over a W within a circle, denoting manufacture by Winchester and on the other side, the flaming grenade and American eagle over U.S.. Winchester only made 500,000 of the P17 bayonets as opposed to 2,000,000 made by Remington making the Winchester examples quite scarce. The scabbard is the green leather version with belt hook fittings favoured by the Americans. As large numbers of the P1913 and P1917 bayonets and rifles were used by the Home Guard in WW2, this example has been fitted with a Pattern 1939 leather frog. The frog is marked to the rear with B.H. & G. 1940 denoting being made by Barrow, Hepburn and Gale Ltd. in 1940. This is a nice complete and dated Home Guard set.

The sword has the correct fish skin bound grip with wire binding which is tight and intact. It has the correct ‘D’ shaped guard with ornate pierced finger guard and embossed brass grip strap & pommel cap. The hilt is fitted with its original Showa period tasselled Officer’s cord indicating that this sword may be one of those handed on to a WW2 Officer by his Father who served prior to WW2. The cord is frayed in places consistent with age and service use. The 26” fullered blade is clean with no damage. The blade is sharp. The sword measures 34” overall length and is carried in its original steel scabbard with leather field service cover which is laced at the throat. The scabbard has its original single hanging ring.
