Civil War 1816 Conversion Bayonet with Marked Scabbard
click for an even bigger image



Very nice condition bayonet for the 1816 pattern muskets that were converted to percussion in the 1850s and used to arm many of the early-war volunteers. This one has a bright blade, no markings but the US at its base, and has a 3-inch socket with correct T-slot, and a 17 7/8 inch blade. Reilly mentions only 16-inch blades, but Schmidt says 17 7/8 is the correct length for these. The blade shoulders are the sloping shoulders of the 1855 series of arms, which is correct for this pattern. This one comes with a nice Wilkinson and Cummings marked early war style two-rivet scabbard that shows just minor abrasions and a few tiny paint dots.
