French Model 1886
"Modified" Lebel and "Fusil" Bayonet
(aka Model 1886/93/16 or 1886/15)
This is the French Model 1886 Lebel Infantry Bayonet
made for the various WWI era - possibly WWII era - "Lebel" and "Fusil" Infantry Rifles,
with evolutionary modifications. Most of these were used by France or French-controlled
colonies and regions.
Below is an unusual marked variant of this type Lebel bayonet; this is not a normal marking. Seems odd this is in English marked USSR and not Cyrillic and CCCP. Perhaps it was a capture piece and the location noted.
