Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a rare early American socket bayonet. This is the style socket bayonet that is described on page 27 of the American Socket Bayonets and Scabbards book by Robert Reilly. It is like the ones illustrated in figure B48. He states that these bayonets were manufactured between 1808 or the later model 1812 muskets. He mentions that the majority of them are unmarked but some have the "INUS" stamped into the metal. On the top of the blade base. This one has such as stamp. He says he believes that these are the initials of Government inspector John Newbury. The bayonet itself measures 19 inches in overall length. The socket of the bayonet makes up 3-3/8ths of those inches. The opening in the socket is located on the bottom of the bayonet socket instead of the top like the earlier bayonets. As you can see, the socket bas bumps and bruises and some bends. The bayonet is in good condition with a attic tone from all of the years. A scarce early socket bayonet from colonial America.
