French Relic Bayonet - SOLD
French Relic Bayonet found just south of Hougoumont between 1980-2005 by a Belgian collector and metal detectorist.
Only one he has ever found in 25 years of searching the battlefield.
In overall good stabilised condition but the tip is missing.
The bayonet catch has been compressed over the years in the ground giving the bayonet a slightly flat appearance. It has been cleaned and treated against further corrosion which has given the metal a black colouring.
One of a kind.
