French Model 1842 Yataghan sword bayonet for Artillery Carbine

This heavy bladed yataghan sword bayonet was first developed as the French Model 1840 and is longer and heavier in the blade with the crosspiece made of steel instead of brass. The Model 1842 was replaced by the Model 1866, the common Chassepot Model 1866 bayonet, which itself is a beautiful yataghan bayonet with a lighter blade. This specimen is an original condition, very interesting 18th Century bayonet. Back of blade marked to Chatellerault arsenal, dated but year is not entirely legible. No scabbard.
