Marked with Z6 at the base of the socket and R over a B with a 62 beside it at the front of the socket. Museum collection number painted on the bottom where the whalebone would have been inserted into the adapter. Metal has a nice japanned brown finish.

This scarce bayonet socket was an altered Model 1858 Civil War Period bayonet and was designed to fit the .69 caliber musket.
