“SWORD” BAYONET & SCABBARD*AS THIS WAS MADE AND USED BY VARIOUS COUNTRIES, AND BY NO MEANS AM I AN EXPERT, I AM NOT TOTALLY CERTAIN OF THIS UNITS PROVENANCE SO FEEL FREE TO CORRECT ME IF I AM OFF*
THIS BAYONETAND SCABBARDARE NICE, STRAIGHT AND PHYSICALLY UNDAMAGED CONDITION. THIS BAYONET HAS “CHARACTER” AND IS STILL AN ATTRACTIVE PIECE.
OVERALL LENGTH OF BAYONET IS APPROX. 27 1/2″ WITH THE BLADE BEING 23″. ONLY MINOR RUST ON A FEW SPOTS ON THE BLADE; NO DEEP, PITTING RUST. NO MARKING ON THE BACK OF THE BLADE. A VERY INTERESTING NOTE ON THIS IS THAT THE SCABBARD HAS BEEN ENGRAVED “U.S. SWORD BAYONET FROM CIVIL WAR”. THIS APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN DONE LONG AGO AND IS SURELY NOT A REPRODUCTION. I HAVE READ THAT MANY OF THESE MADE THERE WAY TO THE U.S. DURING THE CIVIL WAR SO IT IS POSSIBLY A “WAR TROPHY” FROM THAT TIME PERIOD. THERE AGAIN, I CANNOT STATE THAT THIS IS THE CASE WITH ANY CERTAINTY.
