    Confederate-Made Brass Hilt Bowie/ Fighting Knife. 16½" overall with an 11¾" blade exhibiting a clipped point, with a narrow flat ricasso and the lack of a lanyard loop at the pommel. This knife also is marked with a crude Roman numeral "XXIII" on the underside of the guard. This specimen is long believed to be a product of the Confederate States Armory at Keenansville, North Carolina and generally associated with use by mounted units. Very fine untouched condition, just a few chips on the cutting edge, minor. Again, very scarce and most desirable.
