WWI French M 1886/93/16 Bayonet with Scabbard

This is a genuine WWI French M 1886/93/16 "Lebel" or "Fusil" Bayonet with its original steel scabbard. This bayonet is a wartime variation of the Lebel which does not have the hooked quillion. The bayonet has a full-length, tapering, cruciform blade. The cruciform blade is quite rare because it was banned under the Geneva Convention and many cruciform weapons were destroyed. It has a brass handle and a steel muzzle ring. The bayonet measures 18 ½ inches overall, with a 13 ½ inch blade. The scabbard measures 14 ½ inches long.

This is an exceptional WWI French bayonet. It is in excellent condition. The blade retains nearly all of its parkerized finish and the blade has only minimal scratches from use. All parts of the knife are very tight. The muzzle ring has very slight chippage and one noticeable dent near its bottom. The brass handle has only very slight dings on it. The scabbard has some scratches in its finish, most noticeably near its tip. This bayonet and scabbard are both in exceptional condition.

The side of the muzzle ring has a cursive F and the numbers 5877 pressed into the metal. The letters C.F. appear on two sides of the four-sided blade. The number 8 is stamped into the pommel. The scabbard has the numbers 549 stamped on a raised ring around its base along with a marking on its side, which seems to be a triangle over the number 14. There is also a circle on the side of the base. We have photographed these markings.

We have photographed this WWI French Lebel M 1886/93/16 Bayonet and scabbard at multiple angles for your convenience. Please review the photographs and do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.

If you have no feedback, we will only accept your bid if you contact us to obtain permission prior to bidding via eBay, phone, or email. We will only accept returns if there has been a gross inaccuracy or misrepresentation in the product description. If the winning bidder is an Ohio resident, they will be charged a sales tax of 7.75%.  

A refund will not be issued until the item has been received back by the seller and post inspection is determined to be in its original condition prior to shipment to the bidder.

We do offer local pick-up, an option that would eliminate the item’s shipping and handling fees. Handling fees are as listed, and shipping costs will be calculated dependent on the item’s destination. In listing the weight of the package for shipping, we have added some poundage to account for the packaging supplies. We list our shipping method as USPS although we will occasionally use other services (UPS, FedEx, etc.) should they be more cost-effective, safer, and/or more convenient.

We will not ship to P.O. Boxes without having given the bidder approval prior to their bidding. International bidders must be PayPal-certified and the purchase must be made through PayPal. We will not breach any customs regulations in shipping overseas.

If you are the winning bidder, please do not make any payments until you have received an invoice from us. Due to the delicate nature of this item, we will ship it with insurance, the cost of which has been included in the handling charge but which may increase depending on the final price of the item. Any insurance claim that may arise will be handled between you, the buyer, and the company that is shipping the item, be it USPS, UPS, etc. Should an insurance claim arise, it is necessary for you the buyer to keep all packaging materials as you received them. We are shipping valuable pieces of history. We double-box most items and package them as securely as possible to provide for their safe arrival!

If, as the winning bidder, you are in any way dissatisfied with your purchase, please do not hesitate to contact us! We will gladly work with you in order to reconcile the problem. Like all eBay vendors, we shudder at the thought of receiving negative feedback! Our contact information is listed below.
