This bayonet measures 21” overall with an 18 1/4” straight, angular blade having twin hollow ground back flutes and a single wide fuller along the interior face with crisp “US” stamp on the ricasso beneath. The bayonet retains about 98-99% of the original blue finish that has a small amount of silvering at the tip as well as on the edges and bearing surfaces of the socket and locking ring. The bayonet is housed in an original variant metal scabbard with flat brass “US” marked belt hook and leather tab. The metal retains 95% of the original blue with the balance turned to a smooth plum-brown and the brass has a pleasant yellow-ochre tarnish. While a common Trapdoor bayonet, this example is in immaculate condition and would be hard to upgrade from.
