REVOLUTIONARY WAR FRENCH 1754 PATTERN BAYONET

$495.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1052-66

Introduced with the Model 1754 pattern musket, this pattern saw its greatest use in America during the Revolution. The bayonet drops the decorative incised lines on the underside of the socket, but retains the sloped shoulders, deep flutes on the underside of the blade and short fuller on the top flat leading back fom the tip. The significant improvement was the introduction of a third step to the stud mortise, improving retention of the bayonet on the barrel. This is a nice example with a good edge and point, cleaned in the past and showing as silver gray with gray spots, but still has much of its blade mark at the base of the blade.

For details, see Goldstein, Bayonet in New France. The blade mark on this, [crown] / D+D, also appears on the bayonet illustrated in his Plate 29, a 1716 contract type excavated at Ticonderoga.  [sr] [ph:m]
