1908 Dated Model 1905 Springfield Rifle Bayonet in Leather Scabbard
The blade has a very good blued finish with some relatively minor spots of wear. The ricasso is dated 1908 and is marked to the Springfield Armory. The reverse ricasso is serial numbered. The wood grip plates show signs of age but are without chips or cracks. One side of the grip has the number “1718” stamped into it. The finish on the pommel and guard is in good condition. The leather scabbard has spots, is toned with age, the seam is open on the tip and shows wear at the belt loop, but it is complete, intact, and in good condition. The reverse of the scabbard is marked to the Rock Island Arsenal and it is dated 1907.
