The company was renamed in 1898. This dates the item at anywhere from 120 to 180 years old.

Very nice item.

The pommel on the bayonet is pitted but in solid condition.
The scabbard is complete with the leather intact and in good condition. The chape, throat and tear shape frog stud are all pitted but present and solid. Both the chape and throat staples are present.
Overall a salty but solid example.

A great display piece.
