U. S. Military 1892 Cadet Bayonet Near Mint



U. S. Military 1892 Cadet Bayonet




This auction is for a rare U. S. Military Model 1892 “Cadet” Bayonet made for the standard military issue 30-40 Krag rifle. With it is a Model 1899 Scabbard. Both bayonet and scabbard are in excellent to near mint condition. The earliest of the Model 1892s, the fully blued bayonet dated 1894 or 1895. Due to the fear that the heat of the niter bluing process would damage the temper of the blade, bluing of the blade was stopped in April 1895. How many blued bayonets were produced is not known for certain, but the number was probably between 8 and 10 thousand. This bayonet, dated 1903, is fully blued with slightly oversized grips that overhang the tang and pommel. The grips were not sanded smooth, and some of the cutter marks show as grooves and ridges. The rivets are peened in a dome over the washers.

The scabbard is a post 1899 version developed by Captain (later Colonel) Rogers Birnie of the Ordnance Department with a pivoting double wire catch that fit over one of the loops of the web cartridge belt (see photo).



Please Note that the bayonet and scabbard in the above photo are not the items in this auction. The picture is there to simply give you an idea how the scabbard is attached to the ammo belt and secured with a cartridge in the loop. .



In researching these items, we visited “Frank Trzaska's U. S. Military Knives” web page at www.usmilitaryknives.com where we found Gary Cunningham's Bayonet Points #12– an very good and revealing primer on the 1892 bayonet.

INFORMATION POSTED AT THE END

OF THE AUCTION. IT MAY SAVE TIME FOR BOTH OF US.


BEFORE YOU ASK WHAT THE RESERVE IS, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING…


RESERVE AUCTION


We do not disclose the Reserve on our “RESERVE AUCTIONS” because doing so defeats the purpose of the auction. Disclosing makes it a “Sale”, not an auction, much like a classified listing. Most of the firearms we offer at auction are on consignment with us from one of our clients. Our commitment to our clients is to obtain the highest fair market price possible for their firearms. Thus, we prefer the Reserve Auction and the “HAGGLE” feature offered by Auction Arms. About 50% of our sales are completed via the Haggle. In a Reserve auction if the high bidder does not reach the reserve by the end the auction the high bidder or the seller may institute what Auction Arms calls a Haggle a one-on-one exchange between buyer and seller to try and come to a mutual agreement on a price. If you are not familiar with the Haggle process, click on Auction Arms “Help & Info” for complete details. For those items that are not on consignment we usually offer a convenient “Buy-It-Now” price.
