Lot of Two US Socket Bayonets

1) US M1855 bayonet, 18" blade, 3" socket, applied nickel finish. Ricasso marked US, top of socket C&Co, old collection tag on blade. Good with much of the applied nickel and some scattered surface oxidation.

2) US M1871 Sharps rifle bayonet, 3" socket. No US mark on ricasso. Essentially an unmarked US M1855 typically associated with the M1871 Sharps rifles, but will fit any M1855-M1870 rifle musket that accepts a socket bayonet, bore .780". Very good with scattered surface oxidation.
