CIVIL WAR M1855 SOCKET BAYONET AND SCABBARD

$175.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 2022-646

This is the standard Civil War socket bayonet for the M1855, 1861 and 1863 pattern rifle muskets and comes with its original black leather scabbard, and bridle leather belt loop, both now oxidized toward brown. The bayonet has a silvery gray socket, common from handling, and a somewhat grayer blade. We see no markings, only a simple punch dot on the blade. The metal shows fine salt-and-pepper shallow pitting and some graying, but a good edge and point, and the locking ring moves freely.

The scabbard is solid, with tip and belt loop in place. The belt loop and collar are secured by eight copper rivets as well as a line of stitching around the mouth. The surface has some rubs, wrinkles, and some crazing, but shows a very clear Laidley US Ordnance Sub-Inspector stamp though we cannot make out a maker’s stamp.

This is a nice, completely original Civil War soldier’s bayonet and scabbard for the typical rifle musket used in the war.  [sr][ph:m/L]
