RARE SAPPERS & MINERS SABER BAYONET

PRICE   $  875.00

DESCRIPTION

A very rare, first year of production, saber bayonet for the Model 1847 Sappers & Miners musketoon.  Bayonet was made by Ames and is dated 1847. The muzzle ring has been removed to make it a fighting knife or short sword.  The blade is marked on left side "US / NWP" and right side "N.P. AMES / CABOTVILLE / 1847". The bayonet measures 27-inches overall with 22-inch blade. Only 250 Sappers & Miners musketoons produced from 1847-48.

The bayonet has every opportunity to have been altered at a Southern arsenal to arm troops early in the war.

CONDITION

    Condition is very good with evenly aged dark brass patina on grip (photos cause some areas to look bright). Blade markings are crisp. Blade has a smooth gray-brown untouched patina.
