MODEL 1874 MESS UTENSIL SET   COMPLETE SET OF SPOON, KNIFE, FORK AND THE UTENSIL SCABBARDS:   This is a complete Indian Wars Mess Utensil Set - consisting of a Model 1874 Fork, a Model 1874 Knife, and most importantly, the scarce Model 1874 Spoon, and the two utensil sheaths for the knife and fork.  Carried by every soldier in his haversack or in his saddlebags, these sets were the most basic of his equipment. 

The fork has full length sharp tines and the knife is full form with no loss of form due to sharpening.  The blade retains a bright finish and has only minor age darkened spots.  The handles of both utensils still retain much of the original black lacquer finish.  The spoon is full form with no misshaping or bending as is so often encountered and it retains the original bright tin plating.   

The sheaths are in like new, unissued condition showing no wear and with all the seams intact.   

This is a very respectable set in very nice condition.   (0655)  $200
