Original Rare Spanish M1858 Artillery Bayonet Made in Toledo Dated 1864

Original and rare Spanish machete-bayonet for artilleryman and engineering soldier, model 1858, made in Toledo in 1864.  This M1858 Spanish bayonet is in very good to excellent condition and is considered one of the rarest machete bayonets in the world.  The hilt is made of brass and on the pommel a bomb with flames is clearly viewed.  The blade is clean and shiny and in excellent condition for its age with small blemishes.  The ricasso shows the year of manufacturing AÑO DE 1864 engraved on one side. On the other side FABRICA DE TOLEDO (made in Toledo).  Serial number 1284 on the upper grip near the guard.  Unique among Spanish bayonets, and perhaps unique in the world, this Spanish M1858 pattern featured a socket and locking ring mounted on the guard of the bayonet itself to fit the Berdan Artillery & Engineer Short Rifle M1858/67 (Carabina para Artilleria e Ingenieros Modelo 1867). Measurements: Full length: 57 cm. Length of blade: 43.5 cm.
