    German/French Sword Bayonet ?

    Hello

    What are your thoughts on this sword bayonet.

    Is this German made for the French then captured during the Franco Prussian war?

    *The spine is not French marked ( its blank)
    *WKC knight on the ricasso
    *Blade is almost 23 inches long
    Thank you
    Tony

    I agree German made 1866p and therefore no script on the spine. I don't see anything to suggest it is a capture bayonet, no modifications for locking to a German arm and scabbard retains the French method for attachment.
