Martini Henry 1853/71 early socket bayonet

This is the Pattern 1853 socket bayonet bushed for the Martini Henry rifle. Blade length is 17 5/8 inches. It is shorter than the 1876 pattern and the bushing sweated into the sock is evident. Complete with scabbard in good condition with stitching intact but wear to the brass chape. Blade is good with minor dings and a grey patina. Some spots of rust on the socket are pictured. This bayonet would have been used on the early Martini Henry rifles before the 1876 pattern was widely available.
