This is an original angular socket bayonet made for the Model 1816 Flintlock Musket longarm. In time, the M1816 was converted to a percussion musket and the accompanying accoutrements could also be affixed to the newer conversion. The M1816 bayonet was the first American bayonet to include a uniformly ground flute and the first bayonet to employ the “T” mortise in the socket. The triangular blade on this particular item measures the standard 16” and the socket measures 3”.

These model bayonets were generally finished in the bright, with some possible browned exceptions like the one pictured here.  Overall, the bayonet is smooth with scattered minor dings on the outer elbow.

“JK” is stamped into the flat shank with a diamond notch just above the initials, there is no US stamp.  The mark is most likely a maker’s mark.  On the elbow a “T’ is deeply stamped.  To the rear of the mortise on the socket there is another set of markings “T/88.”  [MK] [ph:L]
