Click on an image to enlarge
This is a tough to find bayonet! It is a relic condition example of the saber style bayonet illustrated as figure #4 on page 207 of Janzen's bayonet book. He lists them as the model 1861 U.S. Navy Rifle saber bayonet. They are very distinctive because of the large barrel opening that accepts the large bore of the model 1861 navy rifle made by the Whitney Company that is known to collectors as the Plymouth Navy Rifle. The rifle and bayonet were designed for Admiral J.A. Dahlgren who also developed the cannon that bore his name. The blade is full-length at 22-1/2 inches. It has a completely unmarked blade. The blade has an ancient attic coat of patina as you can see but displays well. The brass handle is complete with a great dark look and on the top of the handle it has the serial number of "2521". These were hand fitted to the end of the gun and it would have had a matching serial number on the gun. The locking spring is still present and complete on the handle as well and it is fully functional. On the back of the handle it has the "F.C.W." stamping. These are the inspector initials of the U.S. Ordnance Department inspector who approved the bayonet for military use, Frank C. Warner. This is a very nice and scarce Civil War brass handled saber bayonet.
