This fine Civil War edged weapon is an original saber bayonet made for the Whitney Model 1861 “Plymouth Navy Rifle”. Approximately 10,000 rifles with these sword bayonets were made.

The total length of this bayonet is about 27 ½” while the blade itself is 22 5/8” long.  Blade is bright and clean with only light speckling and has no edge nicks.  The 4 ¾” long, all-brass cast hilt is secured to the tang by a single transverse steel pin through the guard.  The brass ribbed grip is strong and displays normal wear. Upper grip area is stamped with serial #4376 on the top surface. Inspector’s initial’s, “FCW” are stamped on the butt of the pommel. Brass has a mellow patina.

Leather scabbard is complete and unbroken. Black bridle leather is rigid and in good shape but may have a coat shoe polish on.  All but about the upper 5” of stitching remains complete and unbroken. Brass throat and tip are well rivetted in place. Scabbard tip shows dents on both sides. Throat retains its brass belt stud.  [jet]
