RARE BAYONET FOR THE MODEL 1847 SAPPERS & MINERS MUSKETOON

$1,000.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1047-137

According to “THE AMERICAN BAYONET 1776-1964” by Albert N. Hardin, Jr. only 830 of these weapons were made.

The overall length of the bayonet is 27.00 inches. The double-edged blade is waspwaisted and is diamond shaped in cross section. The blade surface is bright with very light scattered mottling and very minor scattered pitting. There is no fuller. Edges are free of nicks. Obverse ricasso is unmarked. This bayonet was produced by Ames MFG. Co. on an 1855 contract.

The heavy cast brass hilt is unique in that the muzzle ring is located on the obverse side of the hilt instead of the top. The muzzle ring is cast in brass and is an integral part of the hilt. It is fitted with an iron locking ring that operates properly. The grip itself is cast with an eagle feather motif with a plain pommel. The pommel is cut with a short notch on the same side as the muzzle ring for accepting a bayonet lug. The base of the grip has a short guard that ends with two round quillons. One quillon is stamped with the number “35.” Markings on the sides of the brass pommel include a lightly stamped with “A.D.K.” over “R.H.K.W.”; the number “29” and “A2”. There is an indecipherable marking on the blade.

Surfaces have been cleaned. Leather washer at the base of the grip is missing. There is no scabbard.

A rare bayonet in nice condition. [ad] [ph:L]
