Well.......1st off I'd check to see if they were really 1873 bayonets or if they were 1855 bayonets. Many, many of the 1855 bayonets following the ACW had their sockets swaged down to fit the smaller rifle barrels. Try the penny test: if you can push a penny through the socket with no problem then it is an 1855 bayonet.
