BRITISH SOCKET BAYONET

$135.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 1037-534

This item accompanied a British Pattern 1842 musket. It was manufactured by the George Salter & Company located in Birmingham, England. There is a clear maker’s stamp ‘G. SALTER & CO.’ on the face of the blade.  George Salter & Co. was a prominent steel company that would later become a premier bayonet manufacturer in the late 18th and 19thcenturies.  They would produce items for both the British Board of Ordinance and overseas export. The British Board of Ordinance markings are indicated as well.  Above the G. Salter & Co. stamp is the British Crown/ B / 16 / LX.  There is a faint ‘C.S’ located near the front blade shoulder.  This was most likely added later on, not necessarily an indicator of Civil War use.

The blade from shoulder to tip measures the standard 17” for this particular pattern.  The socket is 3”.  The entire bayonet has a dark brown patina.  There is a slight spiral at the tip of the blade which is most likely a later modification. [mk] [ph:L]
