    Patton Sword

    Hello
    I would like some information on my 1913 I believe, Patton Sword and I don't know the right terminology ( Horse stake - swivel ).
    I think it says 15 CAV on the leather Scabbard. Any information would be grateful.
    Thanks

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    You speak of the "Picket Pin"? The sword is a 1914 Springfield Armory of course. They went out of service about 1922 I think? The picket pins too as Cavalry was downgraded about then. The cases are seen more than the picket pins, yours doesn't look like what I'm use to seeing. I have a case here matter of fact. they were peddled as scabbards for Kragicon bayonets by a surplus dealer at one point so stories began about them being for the Krag rifles in the cavalry...except they would have used carbines.

    Most of the picket pins I've seen have a hammer type head and they had a set of issue tools. Here's a stolen pic of the picket pin types and the issue shovel to go with...
