This is an excavated example of a Confederate-made musket socket bayonet.  Measuring 14 ½” overall with a 2 5/8” socket.  This was made for an early .69 caliber musket with a bayonet lug mounted on the bottom of the barrel; as the bridge is on the top of the socket and the channel turns to the left.  The locking ring is missing. The crude, long triangular blade is unfluted and unmarked. The tip of the blade broke off and this was made into a pot hook.

In relic condition, the metal is pitted, but remains stable.

A rare specimen of a Confederate-made socket bayonet.  [jet]
