This is an excavated example of a Confederate-made musket socket bayonet, probably for a M-1816 musket.  Measuring 20” overall with a 2 5/8” socket.  This was made for an early .69 caliber musket with a bayonet lug mounted on the bottom of the barrel; as the bridge in on the top of the socket and the channel turns to the left.  This is the type that did not have a locking ring on the socket. The crude, 17 ¼” long triangular blade is unfluted and unmarked.

In relic condition, the metal is pitted.  This piece has been cleaned and coated and remains stable.

A rare specimen of a Confederate-made socket bayonet.  [jet]
