I picked this up 25 years ago or so at a garage sale for $5. I've done a little research and I think it may be a Civil War Zouave bayonet.

Can any more knowledgeable person confirm this? The only writing on it I can see is the # 10 on the top of the handle. Blade is 21 1/4", handle is 5".

Thanks

Looks like a Yataghan style blade - http://www.old-smithy.info/bayonets/yataghan%20models.htm

Is there an inscription on the spine of the blade, near the handle?

It looks like an AMES bayonet, could be civil war era.

Sadly, there are no other markings anywhere.
