Lot of Two US Socket Bayonets and One Sword Bayonet

1) US M1855 bayonet, 18" fullered blade, 3" socket, .780 bore, US marked ricasso. Old blued finish, likely applied when sold as surplus, similar to Whitney surplus US M1863/64 muskets that were similarly blued. Very good with scattered surface oxidation.

2) US M1871 Sharps rifle bayonet, 18" fullered blade, 3" socket, .785" bore, no US mark at ricasso, clear "M" inspection on shank. Essentially an unmarked US M1855 that will fit all M1855-1870 rifle muskets, most often associated with the M1871 Sharps rifles. Fine.

3) Brass handled foreign-made saber bayonet for the Baker rifle, 21.75" spear point blade, 4.25" brass hilt with guard. Crude construction suggests production in India, Pakistan, etc. Good. Shows age with a heavily oxidized blade, but may not be 19th century.
