Portuguese Dual Purpose  bayonet frog for the M 1904 Mauser- Verqueiro bayonet. Very complicated but excellent very thick brown leather bayonet frog, designed to carry not only the M 1904 bayonet but also to carry other equipment. Retaining strap with a brass buckle. Additional cross strap with brass buckle. This is not a hilt strap since it is stitched down to the front and its purpose is to hold a barbed wire cutter in place. Reverse is marked A. E. 
Well made item. All stitching intact and in an Excellent  condition. Anthony Carter AC 389.
Rare frog!
