This bayonet has an unbridged mortise, is set up for use on a musket with a top mounted bayonet stud, and includes a deeply stuck “US/NS” blade stamp. The fitting for a top mounted bayonet stud would seem to point to Springfield, and the use of a mortise without a bridge would predate its introduction there in 1807. The “NS” portion of the blade stamp is probably that of Norman Sloan, listed as an armorer at Springfield in August 1809, but likely employed there earlier as well.

The bayonet was very carefully cleaned and is in the bright with the markings very legible and just scattered small gray or tiny brown spots here and there. We see just a couple of very tiny dings to the upper back end of the mortise from fixing and unfixing it from a musket at some point.

U.S. muskets and bayonets from this period are a field of continuing study and offer a wide variety for the collector. [SR]  [ph:m]
