VERY EARLY MODEL 1868 TROWEL BAYONET WITH SCABBARD

$1,495.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 490-3006

This unusual item is in good condition. Blade has no visible stampings and wears a mottled appearance overall.

This is the Model 1868 trowel bayonet but must be a very early or transitional example. It does not have the finger ring that is seen on later specimens and appears to have been made using a Model 1855 bayonet. The trowel blade was attached to the older bayonet and the seams remain visible.

Bridle leather scabbard has attached frog (belt loop). Leather shows some minor crazing and loss but remains in overall very good condition. All stitching is complete and unbroken. Frog has seven rivets and is stamped with “US” and a patent date. Brass scabbard tip is present but the two brads are missing.

Very nice example of an interesting bayonet.   [jet] [ph:L]

SCARCE NEW MODEL 1865 SHARPS STILL IN PERCUSSION NEAR FACTORY NEW

There are no appreciable differences between the NM1863 and NM1865 Sharps other than the stamped model designation by the company, and its occasional absence, which some have speculated was due to worn out or broken old dies, or was a marketing ploy… (490-2531). Learn More »
