This original, and in fine condition Civil War Model 1861 US Navy Saber Bayonet was designed by Rear Admiral John A. Dahlgren for the Plymouth rifle and closely modeled on the French bayonet for the Model 1846 Carabine a Tige. These production bayonets were manufactured by Collins & Co.

The bayonet is 27 1/2 inches long. The hilt, cross guard and ring are made from one piece of brass. The slightly curved blade is 22 1/2 inches long and 1 1/4 inches wide at its widest part. It is grooved to the end of the blade, the groove at the end being 3/8 inches wide and 7/16 inches deep. The bayonet weighs almost two pounds. The scabbard is black leather with a brass throat and tip.

The inspector’s initials are stamped on the pommel of the hilt, “FCW” for Frank C. Warner. The bayonet is stamped on the left ricasso of the blade: “COLLINS & CO / HARTFORD / CONN.” The bayonet’s serial number 3580 is stamped on the top flat of the brass hilt, next to the groove for the bayonet lug key. Both rifle and bayonet would then be stamped with identical numbers and shipped together to the Navy.

The steel blade is silver gray and is in fine to excellent condition and has not been sharpened or filed and only shows light blemishes. The scabbard is in good condition, but the back seam has opened. The brass throat and tip are tight.

A historically significant naval short sword of the Civil War in great condition.
