Members of the forum, your thoughts, comments etc on the validity on this possible P1908/VTC bayonet would be most welcome.

Thanks Richard.84E6E5D9-3DF0-4B3E-89F6-0937B5945D1D.jpeg.92ced3b28e4f6c0bc3806e6094b1195b.jpeg38F70D6A-A857-4D0C-BCB7-3F9ABA3EE079.jpeg.df3ae52a71e74844b391debac9fa8d8f.jpeg

Richard,

 

I had to pull out Skennerton & Richardson to check that such a beast actually exists.

Several points,

1) it is hard to comment purely from photos that do not show any markings. Presumably it should at least carry a maker’s mark, although S&R do not show such and do not comment on that, merely referring to the B’ham trade; so maybe not.

2) In my limited collecting experience, this is the first one that I have seen for sale.

3) Can’t see it being a fake. Why bother?

4) Condition looks same as a standard P. 1907.

5) Is it priced the same as. P.07?

 

Regards,

JMB

Hi JMB, 

thanks for replying, the item was up for auction this afternoon.

Dave66 gave me some helpful information about it. I was bidding but sadly it went for a reasonable ??Hammer £170 , bearing in mind it’s scarcity, but above my budget ☹️

Dave mentioned seeing only one for sale previously and that was I believe around £600.

So if it’s ok someone got a bargain.

regards Richard.
