Hello, I was hoping someone might be able to help me identify where this bayonet's origins are. I received it today for Christmas and I've been trying to figure out where it's from using the internet and I think it looks very similar to some Austrian bayonets but I'm not 100% sure.

The numbers next to where it says "Jun" are 56 as far as I can tell, just in case you can't see it in the photo. The word on the blade is also "Striber" as far as I can tell if that rings any bells (I could be completely wrong though).

Any help is appreciated, I hope the photos are good enough!

Welcome aboard and Merry Christmas

This appears to be a derivative of the British 1856 yataghan bayonet meant for the Enfield rifle and carbines. Others can probably better explain the markings but all I can figure is that it is later in use than the first models that had a rivet instead of a screw holding the spring. With the UK influences worldwide, I could easily understand why it might not immediately appear British.

Cheers

It is similar to the British Enfield yataghan bayonet, but as Glen said, it isn't. I'd say it is Austrian:

Yes, that looks like a match. The steel/iron scabbard and frog tab had me baffled, as is the quillon differences.

Okay cool!

I thought it looked very much a like to a lot of the Austrian bayonets, I just couldn't find much information on the markings to confirm that.

If it is actually Austrian that'd be great, that'd diversify my collection!
