    Model 1855 Rifleman's Belt and Bayonet Rig. A complete M-1855 rifleman's rig including an 1855 saber bayonet with brass ribbed handle, 21.75" bright blade; 26.5" overall; marked with an "SP" on the flat of the handle; release mechanism in working condition; tip of blade slightly bent; else, in fine condition. Complete with: leather scabbard with brass throat and tip and complete frog and straps with light crazing, else fine; M-1855 rifleman's belt, 33.5" long, 2" wide, with brass buckle and keepers slightly dry but pliable in near fine condition; and an 1855 leather cartridge box, with trimmed flap and the inner box removed, in very good condition. The rig is in beautiful condition overall, showing very little hard wear. The consignor indicates that this rig came from an old home in Georgia and was likely used by a Confederate soldier. The modified cartridge box is certainly indicative of Confederate field-modified equipment. A great rig which will display well.
