US 1835/42 SOCKET BAYONET

$225.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1052-83

These bayonets introduced the locking ring as a standard feature on U.S. socket bayonets and were developed for the new 1835 flintlock muskets, which went into production in 1840 and were quickly replaced by the 1842 percussion musket: hence the multiple date designations. These kept the somewhat scalloped blade shoulders of earlier models, but were the basis for the Pattern 1855 and saw action beside those models throughout the Civil War.

This has smooth metal, a silver gray in tone, with a clear US stamp on the blade and the number “76” on the socket near the muzzle, likely a rack number, and as correct for the pattern is mortised for a bottom mounted bayonet stud. The locking ring is complete and in place. This is a key piece in a U.S. bayonet collection and would also go nicely with a model 1842 musket. [SR] [ph:m]
