$195.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 490-2742

The bayonet in its entirety has scattered patches of dark discoloration over a dulled and muted pewter coloring.  The tip of the blade has some pinpricking.  ‘U.S’ is stamped on the face flat. The socket, from age, has developed a pewter color and there are signs of oxidation on the inside. The blade measures 18” and the socket is 2 ¾”. Locking ring works, and moves tight.  It retains the original screw in good condition. Typical of this model bayonet is a ‘zig zag’ mortise, which is also present on this item.

Good addition for any collector looking for earlier accoutrement pieces.  [mk] [ph:L]
