American Civil War Relics (and other things of interest)

Rare 1861 Dated London Armoury Co. P-53 Enfield Rifle Musket .577 Cal. State of Georgia Contract, #531.

Early in the war, a small number of these guns were purchased by Governor Joseph E. Brown’s agent in England, Major Edward C. Anderson. The contract was with Sinclair Hamilton & Co. This particular gun, #531 was most likely brought to Savannah GA. aboard the Blockade Runner Fingal, which arrived with the first 1100 Georgia Contract Enfields on October 8, 1861. The London Armoury guns were known for their superior quality and have interchangeable parts. Condition: Straight out of the attic. Metal surfaces are mostly smooth with a deep, dark patina. Lock is marked “1861” over “L.A. & CO.” in the center. Queen Victoria’s Royal Ciper, a Crown over “V.R.” on left side. Mechanics are sound. Long range sight was removed during service and barrel bands filed flat to improve aim. Note pair of “L.A.C.” stamps on the barrel. Correct London Proofs visible on breech. Bore has visible rifling but is worn and needs cleaning. Brass butt plate tang is engraved with # 531. The original ramrod would have also been numbered to match, but has been lost and replaced with an unmarked one. Stock is in very good condition with a clear “G” stamp adjacent to the “LONDON ARMOURY COMPANY 1861” circular cartouche. There are areas on the stock where the original varnish has crazed from high heat in the attic. No repairs or missing wood. See pages 190-193 of Corky Huey and Russ Pritchard’s fine reference book “The English Connection” for a detailed discussion and illustrations of these guns. This pure Confederate weapon is fresh out of a Hillsboro NC. family estate and is new to the market.
