This section of a Model 1855 sword bayonet has been cutdown so that the blade meas. approx. 11.75 inches. The blade surface is pitted throughout and appears to have been painted black at one time and then sharpened. The edge is free of any major nicks.

Ribbed brass handle is in good condition with a frozen, rusted and broken locking mechanism. The brass surface has a light patina with some green discoloration on the guard.

This item was recovered by Ken Bream near Gettysburg’s Neill Ave which is also known as the “Lost Ave” due to the fact it is surrounded by private properly, is well off the main path and is very rarely visited by tourists.

Item was purchased at the auction of Mr. Bream’s collection in 2021 and still has the auction lot tag bearing #43.

Mr. Bream was a 1970 graduate of Gettysburg High School and life-long relic hunter and collector. His parents managed the Stuckey’s Restaurant that was once located at the north-west corner of the Emmitsburg & Wheatfield Roads intersection (opposite the Peach Orchard). In the late 1960s through the early 1970s Ken worked on the Eisenhower Farm as a groundskeeper, maintenance man, and general helper for the Eisenhower’s. For many years, he was the Gettysburg Dog Enforcement Officer.  [ad] [ph:L]
