    That style of bayonet/sword-bayonet, having a J-hook at the front end of the "handle," was common in the later-1800s into the first half of the 1900s. It is mostly a European characteristic, from that time period... but World War 2 Japanese bayonets had that "J-hook" handle form. I'm not an expert on post-civil-war bayonets, but there are some folks here who are. They'll probably be able to give you a more-specific identification.

    How large is the inside diameter of the "ring" for the barrel? If it is less than 3/4" it's post-US Civil War era. Less than 5/8" post Spanish - American War era.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    I'll measure the ring tonight when I get home. Excited to see what it really is!

    I'm the last one to ask about how to preserve it but I'm sure someone will pipe in. I remember seeing somewhere not on tnet someone found a japanese short sword that was worth a ton of money. That's a Banner in my book Tommy
