Civil War Weapons

WP 1. Confederate Spiller & Burr Navy Revolver .36 Cal.

Fine quality example of the 2nd Model produced in Atlanta GA. All matching serial # 977. Metal surfaces are mostly smooth with small scattered areas of oxidation. Brass frame has an untouched patina. Cylinder rotation and trigger mechanism is very sharp. Walnut grips are original and in excellent condition. Minor restoration work consists of a replaced brass grip screw escutcheon, thumb bolt flange, and loading lever catch. When the gun originally surfaced in Texas, it had a marked contrast between the smooth metal and spots of oxidation, this was toned down to be more consistent and the grips were lightly treated. A detailed 12 page John Sexton Authentication report accompanies the revolver. NRA condition: “Good-Very Good, complete, authentic and matching. Fine by Confederate standards”. Note photos of gun before restoration. I have watched auction results of these revolvers with major issues bringing $35-45K at auction. Here is a chance to acquire an attractive and very solid Spiller and Burr Confederate revolver at a reasonable price without the auction buyer’s premium.


WP 2. Confederate 2nd Model Kenansville NC. Cavalry Saber.

Exceptional example of this desirable North Carolina produced saber with its original scabbard. Very high quality with original leather grip and brass wire wrap. Untouched and matching bronze patina on the scabbard mounts, throat and guard. Small casting flaw on one of the ribs. Note “C.S.” neatly engraved on the guard. Blade is smooth with a darkening plum/gray patina. No nicks. Scabbard condition matches the saber. Dent free and 80% of its original russet brown paint intact.


WP 3. US M-1840 Flintlock Contract Musket by “D. NIPPES”, Dated 1843 .69 Cal.

One of 5100 muskets produced by Daniel Nippes of Mill Creek PA. Musket is in very good condition with original unconverted flint lock configuration (most of the US flintlock guns were converted to percussion for service in the Civil War). Clear matching 1843 date on lock and barrel. Strong lock spring holds at half cock but not at full cock. Metal surfaces are smooth and semi bright with scattered light oxidation. Bore is clean with light scattered pitting. M-1842 type ramrod is shortened by a couple of inches. Stock is very nice with sharp un-sanded edges and only minor service blemishes.


WP 4. 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.


WP 5. US M-1850 Field and Staff Officer’s Sword by Ames, Martially Inspected and Dated 1862.

This is a really rare sword. Only 162 of these swords were purchased by the US Ordnance department in 1862. This one bears the inspector mark of Alfred D. King (A.D.K.) on one side of the ricasso, and is dated “1862” on the other. Condition is mint/unissued. Ornate guard is completely slathered in blazing gold plating and has “US” cut out in the design. Original sharkskin grip and braided wire wrap intact and superb. Blade is factory bright with frosting among the floral patterns, patriotic motifs and correct block “US”. No pitting or nicks. 


WP 6. Early American Bowie Knife with Decorated Blade ca. 1850.

Maker marked on ricasso “THEODOR A MEYER”. Classic clip tipped bowie with multiple characters stamped on one side of the blade. These have an American patriotic theme with Zachary Taylor, Liberty Cap, an Indian hunting with a bow, and the slogan “THE GREAT FAR WEST HUNTING KNIFE” in a ribbon. I know this is a rare knife. Condition is very good and tight with original antler handle. Blade is smooth and retains a sharp edge. Originally purchased from the Horse Soldier in Gettysburg for $3500. Ex. Mike Janton collection.


WP 7. Superb US M-1853 “John Brown” Sharp’s Cavalry Carbine .52 Cal.

These iconic guns are also known as “Beecher’s Bibles” due to their notoriety for being acquired for use in John Brown’s raid on Harpers Ferry. Early serial # 11335 is in the range of the first 100 listed as being sent to John Brown by the Kansas Aid Society, but it is not specifically listed. These guns started at serial # 10201 with the highest being # 18083. There were more shipments of these guns to Kansas but only the first 100 had specific serial #’s. Condition of this particular gun is excellent with clean metal surfaces and a dark gray turning plum patina. Lock, lever and trigger mechanism function sharply. Bore bright and clean with strong rifling. Clear Sharp’s Patent markings throughout despite my poorly focused photos. Stock is excellent and has never been sanded. Note feathered grain and only very minor age and service wear. 


WP 8. College Hill Field and Staff Presentation Sword of Capt. John B. Galloway, Co. B, 9th Tennessee Vol. Cavalry Battalion.

One of the finest examples known. This sword and scabbard was captured by an Indiana officer at the surrender of Fort Feb. of 1862. Capt. Galloway was sent to imprisonment at Johnson’s Island. He was exchanged after the surrender of Vicksburg, and the 9th Tenn. Cav. Battalion was reconsolidated. Galloway remained in the service as Captain of Co. B. and fought in many engagements. He was wounded in the leg resisting Sherman’s advance near Winnsboro SC. The sword itself is fantastic. Brass guard is heavily gilt and well finished. “CSA” in large letters on the face. Original leather grip and wire wrap is immaculate. Note red cloth throat washer. Blade retains frosty factory finish and is sharply etched on one side “J.B. GALLOWAY” with acanthus design. Other side has “C.S.A.” and a First National Pattern Confederate Battle Flag. Scabbard is original and classic College Hill with gilt brass mounts. Leather is a bit dry with some crazing and cracks. Old paper tag originally documented the swords capture at Fort Donelson but is now mostly illegible. According to John Sexton’s report, the Sea Monster drag comes from a Confederate Naval Sword and was attached to the scabbard in period of use. It is similar to the Ames M-1852 Pattern but not the same. Sword comes with a COA and appraisal from John Sexton. Copies of Galloway’s service and Pension records also accompany the sword. Ex. Steve Mullinax. Ex. Cullen Smith.


WP 9. US M-1847 Sappers and Miners Musketoon .69 Cal.

Very nice condition. Only 800 of these scarce guns were produced between 1847 and 1856. Metal surfaces finished “in the bright” with some areas of very light oxidation from humidity. Lock functions crisply and is dated 1854. Proper eagle head and “VP” proofs on breech and 1855 date on barrel tang. Original threaded tip ramrod present as well as saber bayonet lug. Stock is fine plus with some service blemishes. Small wood fill repair at junction of middle barrel band near ramrod channel. US Military Inspectors Cartouche on flat opposite the lock. I see the distinct saber bayonets for this gun being offered for sale, so I believe one can be found if desired.


WP 10. US M-1860 Four Screw Colt Army Revolver .44 Cal. 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. Walnut grips are original and in very good condition with a US Military Inspector’s Cartouche present on the left hand side. Stamped into the butt of the grips is “1 R GT CO. D. VT.” and Hinds initials “J C H”. 


WP 11. Confederate “CS and Star” Artillery Short Sword.

Minty example of this deep south produced sword (probably Macon GA.) Brass guard is well cast but crude with clear “CS” on both sides. Note lead filled repair on cross guard. Blade is clean and smooth with no nicks, pitting or sharpening. 


WP 12. Rare Confederate Cavalry Officer’s Sword Marked “S. ISAAC CAMPBELL & Co./71 JERMYN St./LONDON”.

Three types of Cavalry Swords are known to have been imported by the Confederacy from England. This particular sword, Pattern of 1821, is by far the rarest. See pages 293-294 of Russ Pritchard and Corky Huey’s reference book “The English Connection” for a more detailed discussion of this sword. Condition is exceptional. Sharkskin grip and wire wrap are 100% intact and original. Blade is finely etched with a rococo floral pattern, and features a Confederate droop winged eagle surrounded by eleven stars on both sides. No nicks or oxidation. Condition of steel scabbard matches the sword with a smooth graying patina on metal surfaces, no major dents or issues. All Confederate Cavalry Officer’s swords are rare, and this is one of the hardest to find, especially in such condition.


WP 13. Top Condition Martial US M-1860 Colt Army Revolver .44 Cal. Inscribed “R. Cord” on Butt Strap.

I will leave it up to the buyer to research this soldier. I purchased this gun based solely on its condition and my photos really don’t show the quality. Original factory blue finish still present on the frame and barrel. Case colors on loading lever and side of frame. Cylinder rotation and trigger mechanics are tight. Note intact cylinder pins. Smooth surfaces throughout with no pitting whatsoever. Super sharp cylinder scene. Clear patent markings. Original walnut grips are in great condition with US Military Inspector Cartouches on both sides. This is a way better than average Colt Army with identification potential as a plus.


WP 14. Rare US Artillery Officer’s Saber marked “HORSTMANN & SONS /PHILADELPHIA”.

Original leather grip and wire wrap are superb. Blade is mostly bright with minor nicks and no pitting. No scabbard.


WP 15. Non Regulation US Field and Staff Officer’s Sword and Scabbard produced by Schuyler, Hartley & Graham of New York. 

High quality example of this sword that was retailed by the famous wartime firm of Schuyler Hartley & Graham. The blades were imported from Germany, but the etching was done at the firm in New York. Steel guard is in great untouched condition with a stylized Federal Eagle and “US” design. Grip appears to be made of sharkskin and is flawless. The blade is very richly etched with bright Federal patriotic motifs against a frosty background. There is a German “W CLAUBERG / SOLINGEN” mark on one side of the ricasso and the “SCHUYLER, HARTLEY & GRAHAM / NEW YORK” mark on the other. Steel scabbard is excellent without a single ding.  


WP 16. Leech and Rigdon Field and Staff Officers Sword presented to 1st Lieutenant William C. Hopkins, Co. B, 36th VA. Vol. Infantry Regt. Later Co. E, 36th VA. Cavalry Regt.

Extremely rare sword with an extra branch on the gilt brass guard. “CS” within an oval and laurel branches design on hilt similar to other Leech and Rigdon (and Bissonett) Field and Staff patterns. Polished wood grip and braided brass wire are immaculate. This variant did not have a leather wrap. Blade has an aged gray patina and is etched on both sides. One side has in script “Lt. Wm. C. Hopkins” amid vegetal scroll work. Leather scabbard is original to the sword and is also a Leech and Rigdon product. Very good condition with original brass mounts and drag. According to records, after enlisting at Boone Court House VA. in June of 1861, Hopkins was elected captain of a company in Gen. H.A. Wise’s command. This company participated in the Kanawha Valley campaign but retreated to White Sulphur Springs where the company, not having the legal quota to be mustered into service joined Captain McSherry’s company in the 36th VA. Regt. At this time Hopkins was elected 3rd. Lieut. This regiment was at Fort Donelson and somewhere in Tennessee he acquired this fine sword, possibly presented to him by his company. Hopkins was captured at Fort Donelson and later paroled. In the fall of 1862 Hopkins raised another company which was assigned to the 14th VA. Cavalry. Again he was elected Lieutenant. In April of 1863, this company was transferred to the 36th Battalion of VA. Cavalry where it was designated Co. E. Hopkins served faithfully until the surrender and participated in many battles and skirmishes without suffering wounds. Some of the battles he participated in are Ft. Donelson, Carnifex Ferry, Gettysburg, Rogersville, and Lee Court House. As a side note, there is documentation of courts martial accusations against Hopkins concerning incidents while a member of the 14th VA Cavalry at Morristown TN. in Dec. of 1863. Desertion of his company and “pulling a knife on his commanding officer” are mentioned. Evidently Hopkins was a fiery character and perhaps this explains in part his transfer to the 36th VA. Cavalry regt. Research documentation about Hopkins accompanies the sword.

WP 17. Classic Confederate “D Guard” Bowie Knife.

Fine condition with original walnut grip. Blade has very light oxidation and a clipped tip. See pages 212 and 271 of Sexton, Phillips and Melton’s “Confederate Bowie Knives” reference book for similar examples. 


WP 18. Confederate Marked P-53 Enfield Rifle Musket .577 Cal. Run through the Federal Blockade. 

Fine looking gun with clean metal surfaces. Lock is clearly marked “BARNETT/LONDON”. Trigger and cocking mechanism functions sharply. Original long range site and ramrod present. Bore very good. Original Enfield nipple protector and chain attached to the trigger guard. Stock also very nice with no burn out at the breech and no repairs or missing wood. There is a “JS” or “JH” Confederate viewers cartouche within a circle on comb of stock at terminus of butt plate tang. Both of these marks are referenced on pages 115-117 in the book “The English Connection” by Huey and Pritchard. 


WP 19. US M-1860 Colt Army Revolver .44 Cal. 

Very nice example of this iconic American Civil War revolver. All matching 1863 production serial # 91208. Mostly smooth metal surfaces with a consistent gray patina. Cylinder rotation and trigger mechanism functions properly. Sharp cylinder scene. Military sub-inspector stamps on frame and cylinder. Grips are original but have been refinished, possibly obscuring any US Military Inspectors Cartouches.


WP 20. US M-1795 Springfield Military Musket .69 Cal. Converted to Percussion.

A very fine early gun dated 1810 on the lock and 1811 on the butt plate. Lock and trigger mechanics are sound. Smooth gray metal surfaces overall. Lock is strongly marked with early Federal Eagle and “SPRINGFIELD”. Ramrod is original. Stock is in very good condition with attractive wood. No repairs. Early script US Military Inspectors Cartouche present on flat opposite the lock. The really great thing about this gun is that it was almost certainly used in the War of 1812, possibly used in the Mexican War and probably converted to percussion for use in the American Civil War. 


WP 21. Rare Boyle and Gamble NCO Sword with Scabbard and Belt Frog.

Really scarce Confederate Sword. Original leather grip and single strand wire intact with minor wear. Brass guard has a deep untouched patina and typical Boyle and Gamble laurel leaves design. Quillon broken off at top. Note intact leather throat washer. Blade has a deep, dark gray patina with minor spots of surface oxidation and some minor fleabite nicks. Leather scabbard is excellent and sturdy with an untouched patina on the brass throat and drag. Original belt frog is attached and rarely seen. 


WP 22. Dug US M-1855 Colt Revolving Rifle Frame and Cylinder .56 Cal.

Really cool war relic that someone found and cleaned, possibly intending to make a restoration project. This piece surfaced near Fredericksburg VA.


WP 23. Confederate Socket Bayonet produced by the Fayetteville NC. Arsenal.

Made to fit the Type IV Military Rifle. Excellent condition with functioning lock ring. Appears to have been nickel plated but I am not sure. Rare bayonet.


WP 24. US M-1860 Spencer Repeating Cavalry Carbine .52 Cal.

Here is the iconic American Civil War Spencer Carbine in excellent condition. Mostly smooth and consistent metal surfaces. Lever action, trigger and hammer mechanism is sharp. Serial # 36622, according to the Springfield Research compendium lands between # 36612 which was issued to Co. E, 19th NY Vol. Cavalry Regt. (Sept. 1864) and # 36630, which was issued to a member of Co. I, 3rd Michigan Vol. Cavalry Regt. Note sharp Spencer patent address on top of breech. Long range sight present. Bore very clean and bright. Stock shows very minor service wear, no missing wood, cracks or repairs. Two visible US Military Inspector’s Cartouches present on the wrist. These earlier issue Spencer’s are more desirable and certainly saw service in the war. Spencer Cartridges are also available.

WP 25. Dug Confederate Saber Bayonet produced by Cook and Brother.

Remarkable early dug condition. Designed for the Cook and Brother two band rifles produced first in New Orleans and later in Athens GA. Blade has only minor pitting, is full length and un-altered. Provenance uncertain but probably Virginia. Total length 27.5″.


WP 26. Revolutionary War Period “Charleville” Military Musket .69 Cal.

Classic Model 1763 French flintlock musket in exceptional condition. Lock is marked “Charleville” and has a “B” arsenal or inspector stamp. Lock and trigger mechanics are sound. Metal surfaces are smooth and display a very dark and ancient patina. Both sling swivels present. Breech is also stamped with a “B”. Bayonet lug missing. Stock is in superb condition with very few blemishes. Metal to wood fit is excellent. There is a matching mark on both sides of the butt stock. Perhaps the soldiers’ initials with a cross or perhaps a unit designation. Original ramrod present. All original with no repairs or issues whatsoever.


WP 27. US M-1863 Single Action Starr Army Revolver .44 Cal.

A real cream puff. All matching serial # 21990. You can see in the photos a copious amount of original factory blue finish, and slick surfaces on the metal. Mechanically crisp. Original walnut grips are excellent with US Military Inspector Cartouches on both sides.


WP 28. Leech and Ridgon Confederate Foot Officer’s Sword Identified to Captain J.D. Howard, 48th Tennessee Vol. Infantry Regt.

Fine looking sword with original leather grip and braided brass wire wrap. Gilt brass guard has clearly cast “CS” within an oval. Blade is acid etched with floral decoration and the presentation “CAPT. J.D. HOWARD”. The etching is a little light but my photos also don’t do it justice. The scabbard is in remarkable condition with smooth and sturdy leather, but the drag is missing. I will leave it to the buyer to research this soldier.


WP 29. M-1842 Palmetto Armory Rifled Musket .69 Cal. William Glaze & Co., Columbia SC.

High quality example of this rare South Carolina long arm. Smooth gun metal with a deep untouched patina. Center of lock is marked “PALMETTO ARMORY S*C” surrounding a Palmetto Tree. Left side is stamped “COLUMBIA S.C.” and “1852”. Breech has classic “VP” and Palmetto Tree proof as well as a clear “W.G & CO.” stamp. Lock is mechanically sound. Block sight mounted on barrel. Ramrod is original. Bore has been rifled to accommodate the conical ball. This is rarely encountered on Palmetto Muskets. Note “SC” stamped on butt plate. Stock is very good with only minor service wear. No repairs or missing wood. Ex. Sam Padgett collection. Accompanied by a Dr. Jack Meyer letter of authenticity.


WP 30. US M-1858 Double Action Starr Army Revolver .44 Cal.

A great example of the long barrel variation. All matching serial # 23134. Patent markings are strong on both sides. Metal surfaces cleaned to white and are mostly smooth, with small area of pin-prick oxidation near the cylinder. Trigger and cylinder rotation mechanics are sound. Original walnut grips are excellent with US Military Inspector Cartouches on both sides.


WP 31. Rare US M-1840 Artillery Officer’s Saber and Scabbard by Horstmann & Sons.

Original leather grip and braided wire wrap are untouched and show light wear. Brass knuckle bow and pommel have a deep mustard patina. Blade is clean and bright with some original luster. No pitting or nicks. Ricasso clearly marked “HORSTMANN & SONS” on one side and “PHILADELPHIA” on the other. Scabbard is also very nice with smooth clean metal and only very minor service pushes towards the drag.

$2995.00 HOLD M.S.

WP 32. Identified Knights of Pythias Presentation Sword with Scabbard.

Really ornate ceremonial sword and scabbard. From what I understand, the Knights of Pythias was a fraternal order founded in 1864. The blade is lavishly etched with religious iconography. The owner’s name, “John W. Hische” is engraved on the blade. It would be interesting to see if this name pops up on a Civil War roster. I assume that the sword is post Civil War because the maker, “JAMES LUKER NEW YORK” is one that I don’t recognize. The initials “FCB” represent “Friendship, Charity and Benevolence”.


WP 33. M-1849 Colt Pocket Revolver .31 Cal.

Classic Colt Pocket with all matching serial # 150150. Metal surfaces are smooth with a graying patina. Cylinder rotation and trigger mechanism functions properly. Cylinder scene is strong with only light wear. Walnut grips are very good with traces of original varnish. A nice representative example.


WP 34. US M-1861 Trenton Contract Rifle Musket .58 Cal. Dated 1863.

Good representative example of the iconic US M-1861 Rifle Musket, the backbone of the Union Infantry. This particular gun was a product of the Trenton Locomotive and Machine Company of Trenton, New Jersey, and was sold to the State of New Jersey under contract. The firm also had contracts with the U.S. government as well and produced some 11,500 weapons for the army. Lock functions properly. Metal surfaces display some pin prick pitting, particularly near the breech and lock. Long range leaf sight present. Bore is worn with pitting. Stock is very good with no repairs or missing wood. No Military Inspectors Cartouche visible. Ramrod is original.


WP 35. Classic Confederate Cavalry Saber and Scabbard produced by Boyle and Gamble of Richmond VA.

Very fine and untouched example with 100% intact and original leather grip and braided wire wrap. Retains original throat washer. Blade is smooth with a graying patina and no pitting or issues. Scabbard is excellent with a brass throat and mounts. Retains 80-90% of its original russett paint. Comes with a COA from Shannon Pritchard of Old South Antiques and he calls it a “very, very nice sword!”.


WP 36. Colt Special Model 1861 US Contract Rifle Musket .58 Cal. Dated 1862.

The Colt Special Model 1861 offered here is in good condition overall. Metal surfaces are cleaned to the white. The lock is marked in three horizontal lines: U.S. / COLT’S PT F. A. MFG Co / HARTFORD, CT and is dated 1862 behind the hammer. The upper left barrel flat is crisply and deeply marked with the usual US V / P / Eagle Head proof marks. Lock and trigger mechanics are good. Bore is good. Ramrod appears to be original. Stock has only minor bumps and bruises. There is a small crack emanating from the nose cap on one side. On the flat opposite the lock are two clear US Military Inspector’s Cartouches. 


WP 37. Confederate Marked P-56-P-60 Enfield Rifle Saber Bayonet.

Very good condition. Knight head stamped on base of blade. Blockade Runner manifest # 1182 engraved on the pommel. See pages 327-329 of Corky Huey and Russ Pritchard’s fine reference book “The English Connection” for discussion and illustrations.


WP 38. Colt M-1851 Hartford Navy Revolver and Leather Holster. 

Very good example. All matching serial # 87034 lands in the range of guns purchased by Confederate States, particularly Alabama and South Carolina. Gun metal is mostly smooth with the exception of some areas of oxidation on the cylinder. Cylinder rotation and trigger mechanism works properly. “ADDRESS SAMl. COLT HARTFORD CT.” clearly stamped on the barrel. Cylinder scene is fairly good with some spots of oxidation. Original grips are in very good condition retaining 85% factory varnish. Holster is in very good condition as well and appears Confederate made. Comes with a Brian Akins letter.


WP 39. US M-1840 Heavy Cavalry Saber and Scabbard produced by Charles Hammond of Philadelphia PA.

Also known as the “Wristbreaker” or “Dragoon” saber. This one is a good representative example. The leather grip and wire wrap appear to be original but may possibly be restored. If so, they did an amazing job. Blade is bright and clean with a few minor nicks. Marked on one side of the ricasso “C. HAMMOND”. Scabbard is in excellent condition. 


WP 40. P-53 Enfield Rifle Musket .577 Cal.

Good representative example of this iconic American Civil War long arm that was used by both armies, but mainly by the Confederacy. Smooth clean metal surfaces. Lock mechanics very good. Marked “TOWER” and dated 1863. Long range sight present. Ramrod is a replacement. Bore pitted and shot out. Stock has only minor service wear and minor chatter along the ramrod channel. Note “Birmingham Small Arms Trade” stamp on butt stock.

$1495.00 HOLD J.O.

WP 41. Confederate Cavalry Saber and Scabbard produced by Louis Froelich at the Kenansville NC. Armoury.

A very good representative example of this well known Confederate saber. The distinct brass guard has an untouched patina. Matching Roman numeral “II” is present on the guard as well as the throat of the scabbard. Leather grip and brass wire are expertly restored. Leather throat washer is a replacement. Blade has an untouched graying patina with a few minor nicks. No pitting. Scabbard has heavy service wear and dings but is still a good honest example with an untouched patina.


WP 42. Harper’s Ferry M-1842 Military Musket. 

Good representative example. These Mexican War era guns were issued in large quantities to both armies at the outbreak of the conflict. Dated 1846 on the lock which functions properly. Metal surfaces cleaned to bright with some areas of pin prick pitting or possibly oxidation stains. Barrel date not visible. Ramrod is a replacement. Stock is in good condition with no major issues. According to Rafael Eledge (from whom this gun was originally purchased), there is a faint “Z” mark on the stock at the front of the trigger guard tang. That mark is considered to represent a gun that has been “captured and collected” by the Confederate Army. The “Z” is thought to be the mark of Captain Louis Zimmer, an inspector at the Richmond Arsenal. 


WP 43. D-Guard Fighting Knife fashioned from a US M-1860 Cavalry Saber.

High quality knife made from a Yankee Saber. You can see some of the “Emerson & Silver/Trenton NJ” address on the ricasso. The brass hand guard comes from a pre-Civil War saber. The antler grip is professionally done, very tight and feels good in hand. Knife measures 19″ in length.


WP 44. US M-1860 Colt Army Revolver .44 Cal.

High quality Military example. All matching 1863 production serial # 143654 (except for wedge). Metal surfaces are smooth with traces of factory finish here and there. Graying patina is untouched. Trigger and cylinder rotation mechanism is sound. Cylinder scene is about 85%. Original walnut grips are in good condition with typical service wear. No repairs or missing wood. Each grip bears the outline of a US Military Inspectors Cartouche.


WP 45. Dug US M-1858 Smith Cavalry Carbine.

Mostly complete. Missing trigger guard, butt plate, hammer and barrel band. Find these dug parts and you are in business. Displays great as it is. Dug near Spotsylvania VA.


WP 46. Superfine M-1849 Colt Pocket Revolver .31 Cal.

Really sharp little Colt with all matching serial # 133619. Cylinder rotation and trigger mechanism is tight and precise. Original factory blue finish on cylinder and other areas. Case colors visible on frame. 100% Silver wash on trigger guard and butt strap. Cylinder scene is very strong. Factory varnish is 100% on the grips. A remarkable example for any collection.


WP 47. Dug Confederate Bowie Knife.

This is exactly the type of knife that made sense in the Civil War, large enough for fighting and small enough for cutting up food and whittling. Note typical brass cross guard and clipped tip. Dug many years ago near Chattanooga TN. by the late Charlie Harris. Measures 10″ in length.


WP 48. Rare Confederate Artillery Saber marked “HAYDEN & WHILDEN/CHARLESTON”.

These sabers are very rare. They were manufactured by Thomas Griswold of New Orleans and were issued with brass scabbards. Griswold apparently sold these sabers to this prominent Charleston retailer. Saber blade is very good though does show light oxidation. Prominent “HAYDEN & WHILDEN/ CHARLESTON” mark visible on ricasso. Grip has been restored.
