1863 dated Civil War Dahlgren bayonet-bowie. Developed by Navy Commander John Dahlgren for the Plymouth rifle. This bayonet is all original, including the original scabbard. The age patina on the brass components is even, aged patina, with the bayonet itself having a untouched dull patina. The lug-nut locking spring on the handle is fully operational. The wood grip is complete with expected age handling wear. The blade is as mentioned, dull from age, but in very good+ condition overall. Correct, clear full Ames markings, 1863 date, "U.S.N.", and "DR". In addition, the brass end of handle has the "DR" in an oval inspection mark. The scabbard is complete, original and in very good+ condition overall. These original Dahlgren bayonet-bowie's are very desirable and getting impossible to find one on the loose these days.
