Enfield Bayonet Scabbard Throat and Tip with Leather Portions

Item: Enfield Bayonet Scabbard Throat and Tip with Leather Portions
Construction:
Brass and leather.
Approximate size:
3-3/8 length.
Condition: 
Excellent, excavated. The brass has a very pleasing dusty olive green patina. Leather is present, not only on the interior of the tip, but also on the exterior of tip which is unusual (see comments section below). The brass has no cracks, breaks, bends or repairs.
Recovered: Proctor's Creek near I-95 in Chesterfield County, VA.
Reference: 
Similar separate examples of Enfield bayonet scabbard throats and tips can be found in the following reference books:

  • "Civil War Artifacts" by Howard Crouch, page 76, items 7 & 8.
  • "Excavated Artifacts from Battlefields and Campsites of The Civil War" by Stanley S. Phillip, page 77, item 2.

See scans of the above pages in the additional images. 

Comments: These two Enfield scabbard parts were recovered with the narrow end of the scabbared tip inserted into the bottom of the scabbard throat which was likely the work of an idle soldier. Overtime, the throat's interior leather became melded to the exterior of the scabbard's tip and subsequently became dislodged from the throat. The glass top display case and old tag will be included. The display case measures approximately 5-1/4 (W) x 6-1/4 (L) x 1-3/8 (D). It will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War campsite or general relic collection.
