Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a very rare and very cool looking socket bayonet. This one is from the Revolutionary War timeframe. It is an American made bayonet for a Charleville style flintlock musket. Has the very pleasing full-length 14-1/4th inches in overall size and is unmarked all over. The socket of the bayonet is 2-3/4ths inches in length. There is a tag accompanying the piece that states that it was dug in Fort Griswold, Connecticut. Fort Griswold was an American defensive fortification in Groton, Connecticut named after Deputy Governor Matthew Griswold. The fort played a key role in the early stages of the American Revolutionary War, in correspondence with Fort Trumbull on the opposite side of the Thames River. Griswold defended the port of New London, Connecticut, a supply center for the Continental Army and friendly port for Connecticut-sanctioned privateers who attacked British ships. It is nice shape for an excavated piece as you can see. This one is a beauty!
