Original U.S. Navy M-1870 Type 1 Brass Hilted Yataghan Bayonet with Scabbard for M1870 Remington Rifle

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available: This is the lesser known of the Post Civil War Naval brass hilted bayonets for the U.S. Navy M1870 Remington Rolling block rifle, the Type 2 being somewhat more distinctive. It is a lovely yataghan style sword bayonet with a 20" blade, measuring 25” overall. It features a distinctive solid brass hilt with a feather/scale design cast into the grip. 

The pommel is cast with the U.S. Crossed Cannons overlaying an Anchor and still bears the U.S. Inspector's initials of G.G.S.. The blade shows use with some staining but is still in great shape. Bayonet comes complete with brass mounted black leather scabbard.

In great shape and ready to display!

For more information please see:- Watts & White’s, THE BAYONET BOOK page 428, item 905, and Albert N. Hardin Jr.’s THE AMERICAN BAYONET 1776-1964 pages 100 and 101. The latter gives the following information by an illustration of this type of bayonet:

U.S. Navy Rifle, Model 1870, a Remington Rolling Block Rifle, breechloader, was first fitted with a "yataghan" or (yatagan) down sloping blade, a hang over from the muzzle loading design, together with a solid Bass hilt and cross guard with cast Crossed Cannons and Anchor Naval design. This was almost immediately replaced by the straight bladed 2nd Model most often encountered today.
