This American WW1 1917 Pattern bayonet for the Enfield .30 calibre rifle was made by Remington in 1918. At the beginning of the year, Remington mistakenly used the manufacture date, 1918 in place of the pattern designation. The bayonet should be stamped with the designation 1917. This error was soon rectified and 1918 stamped Remington P17 bayonets are scarce.
The 434 mm blade has a deep single fuller on both sides and a rounded spine. The blade is in excellent condition and retains its factory edge.
The blued ricasso is incorrectly stamped with the year, 1918 instead of the 1917 pattern designation above the Remington maker’s mark. The obverse ricasso bears the “flaming grenade” over “US” ordnance stamp and the eagle head, numbered inspection stamp. The cross guard and pommel retain most of their original blueing and the wooden hilt scales are in excellent condition. The press-stud locking mechanism works perfectly.
The bayonet is complete with a black leather scabbard with teardrop frog stud. The scabbard is in very good condition. The locket and chape retain their original blueing. The leather is firm and undamaged with the stitching intact and strong. The bayonet sheathes and draws smoothly and is held firmly within the scabbard.
This 1918 miss-stamped Remington P1917 bayonet is in excellent condition. The miss-stamp makes it a scarce example of a relatively common bayonet.
