WP 1. Nashville Plow Work Confederate Cavalry Saber and Scabbard.

Here is a remarkably honest example that saw real service. Early variant with capstan on the pommel similar to the Sharp and Hamilton Sabers. The guard is crudely cast but has a clear “NASHVILLE PLOW WORKS” address and “CSA” on the face. The leather grip is worn away but the brass wire remains as well as the original leather throat washer. The blade is gray, mostly smooth and has some scattered small nicks. Lap Seamed Scabbard has service dents and is totally original with the exception of one of the small iron mount rings. This saber was passed down through the family of Confederate General Albert Sydney Johnston and was acquired directly from one of his descendants. Documentation from the family is included.

$12,500.00

 

WP 2. Blockade Run Confederate Enfield Rifle Musket # 6273A.

This is a nice one that saw service but was also well taken care of. Lock is marked “TOWER” and dated “1862”. Butt plate tang is marked with Blockade Runner manifest # “6273 A”. The ramrod is also numbered “4347”. Barrel and metal surfaces are mostly smooth with some peppering at the breech. Lock is mechanically sound. Bore is distinct but has some wear. Long range site is present though both shoulder sling loops are missing. Stock has minor service dings and wear. There is a “JS” over an anchor mark clearly stamped at the terminus of the trigger guard tang. This is the mark of Confederate Contract master viewer John Southgate who was in the employ of Sinclair Hamilton. This is a very fine 100% Confederate long arm.

$7500.00

 

WP 3. Rare Confederate Sharp and Hamilton marked Cavalry Saber and Scabbard.

There are not many of these marked sabers in existence. The ricasso is stamped on one side “NASHVILLE TENN.” over “SHARP & HAMILTON”. The mark is weak on the edges. Simple brass guard and scabbard mounts have an untouched bronze patina. Leather grip is excellent with only minor wear but the braided wire wrap is missing in action. Blade is smooth and has only a few fleabite nicks. Scabbard is simply superb with typical lapped seam and thick brass mounts with original iron rings. This saber has been in a private Virginia collection for many years. 

$19,500.00

 

WP 4. US M-1861 Springfield Rifle Musket dated 1862.

Here a a solid example of this iconic American Civil War weapon. Nice and clean metal surfaces. Lock functions sharply. Barrel is dated 1862 with “VP” and Eagle Head proof stamp on breech. Bore is sharp. The stock has light service wear with some chatter along the ramrod channel. Two Military Inspectors Cartouches are visible opposite the lock. This is a great representative example.

$2650.00

 

WP 5. US M-1853 Slanting Breech Sharps Cavalry Carbine .52 Cal. Issued to John C. Warner, Co. C, 15th New York Cavalry Regt.

Also known as the “John Brown Sharps” or one of “Beecher’s Bibles”. This particular gun (serial # 21776) is documented as being specifically issued to a Sgt. John C. Warner of Co. C, 15th New York Cavalry on Feb. 2, 1865. Copies of original records from the Horse Soldier in Gettysburg attest to this and accompany this fine carbine. Condition is excellent which is to be expected from a weapon issued so late in the war. Original finish remains on the barrel and other parts. Bore is sharp and super bright. Markings are somewhat weak. The stock has only minor service blemishes. Mechanically excellent. It is unknown why such a large batch of these early model carbines were issued so late in the war but that is exactly what occurred. 

$5500.00

 

WP 6. US M-1840 Heavy Cavalry Saber by Ames dated 1849.

Very nice example with original leather wrap and braided wire on the grip. Blade is bright in very good condition with only a couple of minor nicks. Scabbard is fantastic with no dents. A very solid 1840 indeed!
