WP 2. US M-1860 Four Screw Colt Army Revolver Identified to Pvt. Judson C. Hinds, Co. D, 1st Vermont Vol. Cavalry Regt.

Hind’s four screw Colt Army revolver is accompanied by a professionally compiled binder of research including his military service records. A Regimental History of the 1st Vermont Cavalry Regt. is also included. Hinds enlisted on July 29, 1864 and was captured at the Battle of Columbia Furnace, VA. on October 7th 1864. Unfortunately Hinds died as a prisoner of war in Richmond on Nov. 25th, 1864. The story of his revolver doesn’t end there as it was re-issued to US Western frontier troops after the war, possibly to the 10th US Cavalry Regt. also known as the “Buffalo Soldiers”. Condition: Very good with smooth and untouched metal surfaces. Matching early serial # 10895 on all parts excluding the wedge (#6535). Cylinder rotation and trigger mechanism function properly. Cylinder scene is visible with some light wear. Note “US” acceptance stamp near the trigger guard.

ANT 12. Ancient Greek Signet Ring with Pan Playing his Flute, ca. 2nd-3rd Cent. BC.

High quality excavated bronze ring with a sharply detailed inset of the Greek God Pan playing his flute. Pan is the god of the wild, shepherds and flocks, rustic music and impromptus, and companion of the nymphs.[3] He has the hindquarters, legs, and horns of a goat, in the same manner as a faun or satyr. With his homeland in rustic Arcadia, he is also recognized as the god of fields, groves, wooded glens and often affiliated with sex; because of this, Pan is connected to fertility and the season of spring.[4]In Roman religion and myth, Pan’s counterpart was Faunus, a nature god who was the father of Bona Dea, sometimes identified as Fauna; he was also closely associated with Sylvanus, due to their similar relationships with woodlands. No doubt a metal detector find. Provenance of Southern Europe.
