I think these are Brunswick sword bayonets c. 1847. I don't know if they have been replicated, but these appear very old and have had some rough handling. If anyone has any knowledge in these, please let me know.

    I believe this is the Napalese Pattern 1850 Brunswick/Baker bayonet. A bunch of these were found (along with tons of other cool stuff) in a 19th century armory in a castle in Kathmandu, Nepal several years ago and imported into the US by International Military Antiques. They were also sold by Atlanta Cutlery. Ihere's a youtube video of the find in kathmandu where these may have originated from:

    I believe these are Nepalese Pattern 1850 Brunswick/Baker bayonets. A bunch of these were found in a palace armory in Kathmandu, Nepal a few years back, and imported into the States. If I am correct, they are old, they are original, they have value, but they were not are not the quality of manufacture of a European bayonet of the period.

    Sorry, my first post didn't show for several minutes and I thought it didn't work, so I wrote the second one.

    Thank you Chrisnp and Ilikeart. Got them for a song at an antique store that didn't know they were bayonets! I love the history behind them, they will be displayed on my wall somewhere.
