Remington made all the bayonets for the Winchester-Lee 1895 6-mm. straight-pull rifles, but not all are marked. This one has the “Remington Arms Co. Ilion N.Y.” stamp in the fuller on the blade reverse. The rifle was the primary issue long arm of both the US Navy and Marine Corps from 1895 to 1900. The first navy contract in 1898 included some 1,800 for the Marine Corps and about a third of these saw action with the Marines who were the first to land and come under fire in Cuba. A second navy contract for 5,000 put even more into the hands of sailors who would form naval landing parties that fought along side Marines in many of the “little wars” in the Philippines, China, and elsewhere.

This one has a nice clean blade with good edge and point, and crisp Remington stamp. The blade has a good surface with some light traces of color. The crossguard shows some very small dings along the edges and some freckling on the sides between the blade and grip. The face shows some color. The sides are a steel gray. The grips have good color, with some scratches and pressure dents on either side. The pommel, like the guard, is a light steel gray and shows dings around the upper edge and a few on the top. It bears a serial number, 18499. The locking mechanism works.

The scabbard is Hardin’s “Type-II,” but there is no agreement on the chronological sequence of the scabbard types and this one has the scarce “T” in a triangle stamp of U.S. Navy inspector Ensign Nathan C. Twining on the frog. Collectors theorize that this stamp appears on both the earliest delivered bayonets and scabbards and Janzen has the “types” in the opposite order from Hardin. (We see the mark only on the scabbard.) This pattern has a small ball finial and the swivel frog is sewn up its sides most of the way, leaving room for just a wire belt attachment. The scabbard mounts have nice blue color remaining. The scabbard body is black and shows some losses to the finish. The frog shows somewhat more brown in color and has some small areas of flaking.  [sr]
