DESCRIPTION

An extremely rare Georgia Armory brass handle saber bayonet modeled on the US M1855 pattern.  The Georgia Armory in Milledgeville, Georgia produced rifles and bayonets of the US 1855 pattern of which only 4 or 5 rifles are known and approximately 10 of the saber bayonets. The bayonet measures 26.5-inches overall with 21.5-inch blade.  Brass grip of the 1855 pattern with serial number "13" stamped on top flat. Blade is deeply marked at ricasso “GA ARMORY/< 1862 >".

One of the rarest Confederate made edged weapons with only the earliest examples having brass grip with the later bayonets having a checked wood grip with iron guard and pommel. This exact bayonet is pictured in "Collecting the Confederacy" by Pritchard.
