1875 Saw back bayonets, 3 types to identify
I have 3 1875p saw back bayonets and neither have any British inspection markings. At top is one with a 18.2" blade marked F.D.B on ricasso. MRD is 21mm. Fuller length is 7" Bar on barrel.
Centre is a blade 18.2" long and marked on ricasso P.D.L in an oval. MRD is 18mm and fullers 6 1/2" long, bar on band, possibly 112 trials pattern 1875?
bottom is a blade 18" long and marked with a German kings head. MRD 20mm. B63 stamped on guard. Fuller 7" long. bar on band. Possibly Australian Henry?
Any help identifying these is greatly appreciated.
