US Indian War, M1873 Trowel Bayonet, 2nd Pattern Scabbard

Quantity: 
Price:  $450.00
 
Item #36937

Original era manufacture. Experimental bayonet from the early 1870's with a 2nd pattern scabbard. The polished steel  blade is bright, with scattered areas of staining and light pitting as shown. Nice blue finish to the mounting socket and shank with very light surface corrosion.

The leather covering to the metal bodied scabbard is dry and flaking, the seam on one side has opened up, however the brass tip is intact, the metal body is not crushed and little of the leather surface is broken away. The top of the belt loop is missing, but the brass US rosette remains.

 A final note, these trowel bayonets were sold surplus by Bannerman's of New York in the late 19th century. They had so many in stock they sold these for years in their catalogs as garden tools for less than a dollar.
