SUPERB! US SA c. 1920 MFG. LONG M1905 BAYONET & RARE 1920 DATED M1910 SCABBARD
Original and outstanding U. M1905 Springfield Armory manufactured 16 inch blade bayonet dated 1920 and very rare 1920 dated RIA (Rock Island Arsenal) M-1910 Canvas and Leather Tipped Scabbard. This bayonet was intended to be used on the 1903 Springfield and early M1 Garand Rifle. Both bayonet and scabbard are both dated 1920 and obviously have seen very little or no actual service use. The scabbard is original to the bayonet, remains in excellent condition, and is of the very rare 1920 date. The scabbard is marked RIA and also dated 1920 same as the bayonet. Very few of these M1910 scabbard bare post WWI dates as so many were made during the war there was really no need to make any more in 1920. Overall an outstanding set which would be hard to upgrade in condition. These are very hard to find like this as most were used heavily between the wars, cut-down, and whatever survived got used up in the early years of WWII. Absolutely 100% guaranteed to be an original.
