RARE AMES MODEL 1847 SAPPERS & MINERS ARTILLERY MUSKETOON SWORD BAYONET

$950.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 344-2607

These well-made sword bayonets were produced from 1847 through 1856 for the Springfield Model 1847 Sappers & Miners musketoon, of which only 830 total arms were manufactured.

This bayonet from the first year of production, features a 21-1/2″ double edged blade. One ricasso is marked “US / N.W.P.” and the other with the “N. P. AMES / CABOTVILLE / 1847”. The handle is of cast brass with thick cross-guard having teardrop shaped quillions. On one side of the cross-guard is a brass ring-socket that slides onto the musketoon barrel with a rotating steel locking ring.  The grip is fish-scale pattern with a swelled pommel that has a slot for the bayonet lug.

Good to very good condition. Blade retains an even, lightly cleaned, tarnished-silver patina with moderate pitting, heavier toward the point. Edges are good with no nicks. Manufacturer stampings are easily readable. Handle has a few minor nicks & dings, shows moderate wear and retains a medium bronze patina on the exposed surfaces with darker patina in the scales of the grip. A wonderful bayonet. [jet]
