This is an excavated example of a Confederate-made musket socket bayonet.  Measuring 21” overall with a 2.75” 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 crude, 18” long triangular blade is unfluted and unmarked.

In relic condition, the metal is pitted and there are a few chips along the edges.  This piece has been cleaned and coated and remains stable. Locking ring remains on the socket.

A rare specimen of a crudely-made Confederate socket bayonet.  [jet] [PH:L]
