**VERY RARE**American Civil War Era Confederate Army & Navy ‘Bowie Bayonet’ With Chequered Polished Horn Scales, Etched Blade, Cross Guard With 14mm Diameter Muzzle Ring Cross Guard & Scabbard. Sn 20297 - 20297
Popularly known to the collecting world as the Bowie Bayonet these impressive bayonets were popular with both Union & Confederate troops in both the Army & Navy. Union examples were marked ‘U.S’. Many Confederate Bowie Bayonets were made by the British Sheffield trade when the outbreak of hostilities in 1861 sparked a boom for foreign cutlery manufacturers. Sheffield cutlers reaped handsome returns exporting substantial quantities to the Confederacy. See pages 179, 183 & 193 of The Bowie Knife by Flayderman where examples of Bowie Bayonets are illustrated (we cannot find an exact match for ours which has the quality and weight of a Sheffield made piece. The bayonet charge which can be seen in image 1 taken from a contemporary war artist’s impression illustrates why these impressive weapons would have been useful in combat). Our example, no doubt a Confederate weapon has a 10” long deep swept Bowie blade (15” overall). The blade is undamaged and has just staining consistent with age. One side of the blade has etched scrollwork decoration which is rubbed in areas. There are no visible maker or date marks. It has a steel cross guard with 14mm diameter muzzle ring (we are uncertain which rifle this bayonet was made for). Its polished horn ergonomic scales are undamaged with no chips or cracks and have chequered panels. Each grip is secured by 5 pins. One scale has a sprung knurled steel release button which works as it should. The Bowie bayonet is contained in its original leather scabbard which has a brass throat mount with frog locket and brass chape. The leather has some surface scuffing consistent with age and service use but all leather and stitching are clean & intact. The price for this very rare Bowie Bayonet includes UK delivery. Sn 20297

This is a very nice WWII M4 bayonet (The M4 bayonet was introduced in 1944 for use with the M1 carbine.

The pommel carries a number 134. The scabbard is the early ‘U.S. M8’ made by ‘B.M.Co.’ (Beckwith Manufacturing Co). A nice late WWII M4 & M8 scabbard combination. The price includes UK delivery. 20155.

WW1 1918 U.S Army Springfield Arsenal (SA) M1905 Bayonet & M3 Scabbard. Sn 20103 - 20103
The M1905 bayonet was produced from 1906 to 1922 by Springfield Armoury and Rock Island Arsenal (RIA). The blade and handle frame were forged as a single piece with a wide, square-shaped fuller. The ribbed hand grips were made of walnut and attached to the handle with a screw. The screw also held the catch mechanism, manipulated with a button under the crossguard, that was used to fix the bayonet to the rifle's bayonet lug. In mid-1941, it was decided to restart production of the M1905 bayonet. To simplify production, these later bayonets had handles with black or dark red ribbed grips, made of phenol formaldehyde resin, the earliest type of synthetic plastic. Production was scheduled to begin in January 1942, but the first bayonets were not delivered until April, with quantity deliveries not beginning until the summer of 1942. Despite initial setbacks, the M1905 bayonet was manufactured in sufficient numbers to keep up with the widespread introduction of the new M1 Garand rifle in 1942. By the end of 1942, all six manufacturers had changed the shape of their fullers to a narrower, round-bottomed shape. The later version of the M1905 bayonet with plastic grips is sometimes referred to as the "M1942" by collectors and historians. This is a late production WW1 1918 dated M1905 Bayonet made by ‘SA’ (see White & Watts ‘The Bayonet Book’ item 922 pages 411 and 434). The 45 cm long steel blade with fullers is stamped by the maker ‘SA’ above Frankford arsenal ignited grenade mark and date 1918. The reverse has ‘US’ army acceptance mark and number ‘778039’ . The correct, walnut grips are correctly held by a single screw. The wood has knocks, bumps and bruises to be expected. The bayonet has the correct press button at the cross guard which releases the locking catch on the rifle and also holds the bayonet firmly in the scabbard. The scabbard is the later M3 plastic variant with ignited grenade ‘US’ (army) mark on the throat mount. The throat has the correct double hook belt bar. The price includes U.K. delivery. Sn 20103
