Blade measures 19.75" in length, 1 1/16" wide and 5/16" thick. Unstopped fuller measuring 13.5". 4.875" brass hilt of flat bird's head pommel pattern. No markings. [See Hardin, AMERICAN BAYONET, p. 97, variation 3] Bayonet adapter, designed to fit over front sight of 1841 "Mississippi" & "Fayetteville" rifles, measuring 1" in diameter, with following side marking: "BG & M / Richmond, VA/ Sept. 2, 1861" [See Hardin, p. 95]. Leather scabbard cut from naval cutlass scabbard, measuring 21", fitted with brass stud and drag. Leather belt frog, with buckled leather strap, fitted to scabbard stud. 

Bayonet blade exhibits a splotchy dark gray blade with medium pitting, & traces of grime. Brass hilt displays a dark coppery patina, as does bayonet "adapter", which exhibits numerous nicks on the spring-release side of the bird's head pommel. Scabbard is intact, though fragile, displaying much cracking and some flaking, along with one "struck" spot four inches from drag. The stud and drag exhibit medium coppery patina, with the latter somewhat dinged. Else VG. 

With its B, G & M marked adapter, this is one scarce, highly desirable Confederate bayonet.
