CONFEDERATE
MOBILE DEPOT
SHOTGUN BAYONET

At the beginning of the Civil War the State of Alabama sent all of their early regiments to the Southern Coast, the Mobile and Pensacola area.  These early regiments were literally armed with shotguns and country rifles.  The Mobile Depot was established in an attempt to convert many of these civilian arms to military application.  This bayonet and others like it are one of the most interesting products of the Mobile Depot.  Single and Double Barrel Shotguns had a brass mount soldered to the right side of the barrels which mounted this bayonet.  Both the mount and bayonet were constructed at the depot.  this bayonet has many forging flaws and the brass hilt is crudely made.  There is what looks like a chip out of the blade which more than likely is just a lamination flaw and the metal fell out.  This blade is not pitted and is relatively smooth with dark spots.  SOLD!!
