1907 Dated Model 1905 Springfield Rifle Bayonet with Leather Scabbard and Metal Belt Hanger
The blade has a generally bright finish with some gray spots and some scratches. The ricasso is dated 1907 and is marked to the Rock Island Arsenal. The reverse ricasso is serial numbered. The wood grip plates show minor signs of age but are without chips or cracks. It appears that the letter “L” was impressed into the grip plate of one side. The finish on the pommel, guard, and scabbard throat is in good condition, showing some wear. The leather scabbard has some scuffs and indentations, but it is complete, intact, and in good condition. The number “2821” is impressed into the leather below the rear scabbard throat, where there is also an indistinct arsenal mark and date. The long metal belt hanger has a good finish, showing some wear.
