3RD PATTERN, BROWN BESS SOCKET BAYONET WITH SCABBARD

$450.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: E2605

This British military accoutrement is an original angular socket bayonet and scabbard used with their Brown Bess smoothbore musket.  This sturdy 3rd Pattern bayonet is well made and dates to around the 1820s.  The triangular blade exhibits a spear shape and the two “bottom” sides are fluted to within 2.5” of the collar.  The top, flat portion bears several stamps: a British crown over “3” proof mark, “WOOL___”, an indistinguishable set of characters, and an “X” where the blade meets the “elbow”.  Socket has typical mortise and reinforced collar; this pattern had no locking ring. Bayonet bears a nice “tarnished-silver” color with scattered speckles of light peppery pitting overall.  No nicks on the edges. This specimen is 21 ½” long overall, a 17” long blade, and a 4” long.

The scabbard is in very good condition. Black leather has only minor scrapes and finish chips from age. Stitching is complete and tight. Brass throat and tip remain firmly in place. Scabbard is rigid and strong. Bayonet fits perfectly to scabbard.

A fine, seldom seen British Brown Bess bayonet set.   [jet]
