BAYONET, Finnish, M28
Bayonet for Finnish M28 rifle. Manufactured by Hackman, and so marked on the ricasso. It comes in a fluted scabbard, and has a bright blade with only a few few very minor stained spots. This bayonet was issued to the Civil Guard, as evidenced by the Civil Guard acceptance stamp =S= on the cross guard. The serial number 74770 is stamped on the bottom of the tang. The number 92 is stamped on the pomell. While the blade was left in the white, the bayonet was blued (now a faded grey) from the cross guard to the pomell. The Finnish maker, HACKMAN, Made only 38,200 of these. In fact, Finnish manufacturers delivered only about 130,000 sword style bayonets to their Army and Civil Guard by 1945. Compare that to the MILLIONS of bayonets produced for the Mauser/Enfield/Mosin Nagant families of rifles! These Finnish bayonets are considered rare, and getting more so with time.
