    Hi, just picked this up at garage sale the other day. Thought it was a 1866 french Bayonet at first which it could be but all the markings I have seen are completely different than these. Ant help would be great. Thanks

      I would rule out French because of the crowned head. No royalty.

      Sorry blunderbuss2 but this is a French bayonet but with a twist. The crowned head mark indicates that the blade was made by the German firm Weyersberg which exported to France and Italy. From your pictures I would guess that this bayonet was in French service until 1870-71 but may not have been captured by the Germans since I do not see any German unit markings on it. The flat top of the wavy blade should be engraved with a date.
