Original era manufacture. Experimental bayonet from the early 1870's with a 3rd pattern scabbard. In addition, the wooden socket insert which serves as a grip extension, is also present. However, excellent replicas of these grip extensions were made years ago, all show age now, so it is difficult to tell the difference. The blade is very bright, no pitting, just some light spotting and staining to the surface. Nice blue finish to the socket and shank. The scabbard is quite sound, retaining its brass chape and original hanger with brass US. The hanger leather is dry with surface cracking but is sound enough. A nice example, difficult to improve upon. A final note, these were sold surplus to Bannerman's of New York in the late 19th century. He sold these for years in his catalogs as garden tools for less than a dollar. Fun huh!
