US Model 1873 Trowel Bayonet with Scabbard and Handle
- Maker: Spfld
- Model: Bayonet
- Description: This bayonet measures 14 1/2” overall with a 10” leaf-shaped blade having a high ridge along the back, and contoured socket. The steel has an overall bright, original patina with a few specks of very minor plum-brown freckling visible, but the remainder of the metal retains about 97-98% of the original blue. An original leather scabbard is included that has only minor crazing and flaking on the belt tab and loop. The brass chape has a mottled yellow-ochre patina, as does the “US” marked tab disk. An original walnut handle insert, also in excellent condition, is included. This is one of the nicest ’73 Trowel Bayonets we have yet seen, especially since it comes with some hard to find original accessories.
