Chassepot experimental ? test variant?

Category: Tag:


Very rare according to Vial experimantal Chassepot bayonet. Quillon is reverse compared to typical version, handle is slightly shorter. Rail is of Chassepot type, ring diameter alike. No numbers on scabbard. Rare late frog came with this bayo and seems to be original.

Any hints about this bayonet will be appreciated.
