A very scarce American M1905 Bayonet made by ‘Springfield Arsenal’ in ‘1908’ and marked to the blade with ‘S.A.’ over a flaming grenade and ‘1908’. The other side carries a ‘U.S.’ over ‘324154’. The grips are ribbed wood held by a single screw bolt. The bayonet has a 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 early pattern of heavy leather sewn over a wooden frame with brass rivets and this has a double hook arrangement used on all subsequent American bayonets. The brown leather carries a stamped ‘R.I.A. 1907 Feb’ to the rear (Rock Island Arsenal). This is in very good condition. A real collector’s piece. The price includes U.K. delivery. BAYO 712.
