MODEL 1873 45/70 TRAPDOOR BAYONET WITH A MODEL 1885 SCABBARD – EXCELLENT CONDITION:  This set is in excellent condition, a really choice set from an old collection.  The bayonet is in full form and has a smooth, shiny surface which still retains the original bright arsenal blue finish and a strong “US” stamp.  

The scabbard likewise retains its blue finish, with none of the pitting normally found on these.  The leather frog has a smooth surface with only minor scuffing, and has an even color.  All of the stitching is intact and the leather is strong and pliable, and the inspector’s initials are still legibly stamped on the reverse.   

The brass hook has a nice naturally aged patina and it turns freely on the swivel without being loose.   

Not commonly found on the market today in this condition, this is a very nice set to display with your high quality Trapdoor Rifle.  (0115) $285
