After the Harpers Ferry Armory was seized by Virginia forces in 1861, the machinery for making rifle muskets went to Richmond and that for the 1855 rifle went to Fayetteville, where it finally began turning out rifles in 1862.

For the first two years the rifles produced there were fitted with bayonet lugs for saber bayonets that naturally followed the pattern of the US 1855 saber bayonet, but with a feathered grip, sometimes referred to by the unromantic term “fish scale.”

This rates in very good condition and measures 26.5” long overall. The Yataghan style blade is 21.5” long, gray in color with dark gray stains. There are no edge nicks and the tip appears slightly worn and rounded. The hilt is very good. The locking button and spring remain in working order. The brass has a mellow patina.

This would look great in a display of Confederate arms. [jet] [ph:L]
