This is a Fayetteville (North Carolina State) Armory produced bayonet manufactured for the model 1841 “Mississippi” rifle.  This particular bayonet will also fit the muzzle of some upper lug .69 caliber muskets. The Fayetteville Armory pre-dates the Civil war as a federal Armory, but was surrendered to the Confederate forces less than two weeks after the fall of Fort Sumter in April 1861. Shortly thereafter, it was the recipient of the captured (Model 1855) rifle-making machinery from Harpers Ferry and became one of the most productive arsenals in the South remaining in operation until the closing days of the war in 1865.

This example measures 22.5” overall, with a socket length of 3”. Overall surface exhibits a dark patina showing under a chipped, old coat of silver paint or some type of plating.  The locking ring is stuck in place. No markings of any sort, which is typical of Fayetteville production.

A scarce Confederate bayonet. [jet] [ph:L]
