Were the bayonets that the Providence Tool Co. supplied with the 3,000 Canadian Peabody rifles marked in any way?

Unit markings sometimes stamped on the leather scabbard. Markings usually absent, they are not easy to identify. This is from British and Commonwealth bayonets by Skennerton page 298.

Will,

Thank you for the link. There is some uncertainty about the "CM" mark. I have recently learned that this frequently appears on the Spencer rifles although I have not personally seen an example.

All the best,

Thanks for the information. It appears that they are like an unmarked commercial version of the US model 1855 bayonet.
