This is the standard bayonet for the Pattern 1856 Enfield Short Rifle. With the increasing demand for British guns by both sides at the outbreak of the war, many British gun manufactures contracted firms in Belgium and Germany to manufacture bayonets. This particular bayonet is marked on the ricasso with a knight's head symbol, which is the symbol of Kirschbaum and Bremshey, Solingen, Germany. On the top of the blade is a crown over "S" and "18" which is the inspector's stamp. Also engraved on the pommel is the number 650 which is a Confederate shipping inventory number. It also has the number "25" which was used to match the bayonet to a specific gun. The condition is near mint and it includes a leather scabbard and buff leather frog in the same condition.  [ff]
