Click on an image to enlarge
This is the bayonet that you seldom see offered for sale. This is the socket style bayonet designed for the Austrian model 1838, military rifle. This is the version pictured on page 82 of the book by David Noe and Joseph Sebaroli, Jr. Entitled European Bayonets of the American Civil War. The bayonet has the distinctive 4 sides to the blade. The blade is full-length at 19 inches. The socket is the version that is manufactured without the lock ring and screw. It has the opening that clips onto the spring clip underneath the barrel. On the side of the bayonet shank. It has the remnants of the 6 pointed Austrian star stamping from the Vienna Arsenal. On the right hand side of the socket it has the "C15" stamping. As they mention in the bayonet book, this is the marking where it was issued here in the U.S. The gun that matches it would have been so marked. As you can see this one is in beautiful untouched condition all the way around. What makes it extra special is that it comes in the original American made leather and brass scabbard. You can see at the top of the scabbard where it has had the four sided blade in it forever. The scabbard body is still in solid shape and it has the original brass scabbard tip and finial present. On the top of the scabbard, the original belt loop is intact and would go back on a belt today. This is a scarce bayonet and is even more scarce to find in the original scabbard.
