Civil War Weapons

WP 1. Exceptional Second Model Morse Cavalry Carbine .50 Cal.

A desirable brass framed Confederate carbine with matching serial # 454 on the breech block and frame. These remarkable guns were created by George Morse. Morse, a nephew of Samuel Morse, of Morse Code fame, was an inventor contracted by the US military to convert 2,000 weapons before the Civil War to a new kind of breechloading mechanism he invented. He was was working on new ways to improve it, constantly designing and then redesigning until the money ran out. 60 guns had been produced with another 540 partially complete. Morse secured additional funding, and the US Ordnance Department transferred the rifle conversion machinery to Harper’s Ferry in July 1860. However, when the war began, Morse sided with the Confederacy. When Virginia forces seized Harpers Ferry, Morse managed to have his special equipment sent to Nashville, where he worked for the Confederate Ordinance Department. Ultimately, with the fall of Nashville, the equipment ended up in Greenville, South Carolina. Though Morse never received a contract from the Confederacy, the state of South Carolina ordered 1,000 weapons from him to be used by state troops. They saw use mostly in South Carolina but some cartridges have been dug in the Chattanooga area. What sets this carbine apart is its condition. Fully functional breech block, cocking, and trigger mechanism. Barrel exhibits a smooth plum colored patina and the brass frame, a deep, untouched mustard patina. Original threaded ramrod is present as well as the cleaning jag which is stored in the brass butt plate, Stock retains original factory varnish and has only minor service wear. No repairs or missing wood. Condition is squarely in the upper 5 to 10 percentile of all survivors.


WP 2. Rare Confederate “2nd Quality” Whitworth Sniper Rifle .45 Cal.

Serial # B 922 is within the range of the known Confederate used rifles. Barrel is correctly marked “WHITWORTH PATENT” and has Birmingham proofs. Lock is marked “WHITWORTH RIFLE CO. MANCHESTER”. Metal surfaces are smooth with the exception of some minor pin-prick pitting around the bolster. Extreme long range sight is present and marked “WHITWORTH RIFLE Co. PATENT”. Stock is also in remarkable condition with some minor service dings. You can find more detailed information on these rifles in Corky Huey and Russ Pritchard’s reference book “The English Connection” (pages 181-186). At one point long ago, someone shortened the barrel about 8″ and the stock was cut down to 2″ forward of the rear barrel band. Restoration work was professionally done by Ned Hibb who spliced the end of a reproduction Whitworth barrel and forward sight assembly (from Gibson Rifle Co.) onto the original. He also restored the front end of the stock. The ramrod is a reproduction. This work was extremely well done and is very hard to notice. The Confederates were not able to field many of these rifles, but the few they had were used with deadly effectiveness. The Whitworth Rifles were issued only to the most talented sharp-shooters in the Confederate Army.

WP 3. US M-1840 Heavy Cavalry Saber and Scabbard produced by Charles Hammond of Philadelphia PA.

Also known as the “Wristbreaker” or “Dragoon” saber. Excellent condition with original leather grip and brass wire wrap. Blade is smooth and clean with no nicks. Marked on one side of the ricasso “C. HAMMOND”. Scabbard is in excellent condition with no dents or issues. 


WP 4. US M-1860 Spencer Repeating Rifle .52 Cal.

Here is the iconic American Civil War Spencer rifle in excellent condition. Smooth and consistent metal surfaces with traces of original factory finish on barrel and barrel bands. Lever action, trigger and hammer mechanism is sharp. Serial # 11097. Note sharp Spencer patent address on top of breech. Long range sight present. Bore is clean but has some wear. Original loading tube replaced at some point with a M-1865 tube. Stock is very good, does show some service wear. There is a 2.5″ crack at the junction of the frame on right hand side. No inspector cartouche but as most collector’s know, many of these rifles were independently purchased by individual units such as Wilder’s “Lightning Brigade.


WP 5. 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 6. Confederate Cavalry Saber produced by Kraft, Goldschmidt, & Kraft of Columbia SC.

High quality example of this scarce sword. Original leather wrap with single strand iron wire fully intact and in superb condition. Blade is smooth and bright with no nicks or issues. Brass guard has a deep untouched patina and still retains the leather throat washer. The original two-piece wooden scabbard is superb with intact mounts and drag retaining traces of original black finish. The Christian soldier that carried this sword inserted a pewter cross for protection in battle. Note “CSA” stamped into the wood above the cross. This is a fantastic Confederate sword with some character.


WP 7. Scarce US M-1855 Springfield Pistol Carbine .58 Cal.

Fine condition with matching shoulder stock. This gun utilizes the Maynard tape primer system. Lock is marked “SPRINGFIELD” and dated 1855. Tape primer, trigger and lock mechanisms function properly. Metal surfaces are untouched with a gray turning plum patina. Barrel date obscured by patina but most likely visible with minor cleaning. Tip of flip site broken. “VP” and eagle head proofs visible on breech. Original ramrod assembly intact and functional. Bore has distinct rifling. Stock and shoulder stock have brass hardware. When attached, there is some lateral wiggle which is normal. Wood shows minor service wear. There is a crack intersecting the top lock screw opposite the lock. It is cosmetic and does not compromise the integrity of the stock. Inspector cartouche not visible. Saddle ring present on butt of pistol.

WP 8. Confederate D-Guard Fighting Knife produced by the Georgia Armory.

High quality knife with a smooth clean blade. Original wooden grip is in very fine shape with no issues. These were produced for the State of Georgia Militia in Milledgeville. Measures 23″ overall.


WP 9. 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 10. Confederate Griswold Navy Revolver .36 Cal.

Classic brass framed revolver produced at Griswoldville GA. Serial # 1912 with cylinder numbered 1908 (only four digits off). Secondary # 52 on trigger guard. My colleague John Sexton studied this gun for me and shared his notes from previous examinations. There is an old opinion by a Cecil Anderson that the serial # 1912 on the frame has “possibly been freshened.” I really don’t see evidence of this. He does say that the frame is original to the gun. The wedge and wedge screw are modern replacements. Back strap screws are old replacements. One of the trigger guard screws is replaced. Grips are not numbered but are considered original. Hand screw is just a bolt that moves freely. Basically, everything on this revolver is original except for the wedge and a few screws. Metal surfaces exhibit an attractive patina, not heavily cleaned with light pin-prick pitting here and there on the barrel and frame. There is pitting in the bore but rifling is strong. You can see the characteristic “twist” in the wrought iron cylinder. There is some wiggle in the frame to barrel fit as well as lateral looseness to the loading lever. Overall, we have an authentic and attractive Confederate produced revolver with minor issues, and priced reasonably.

WP 11. US Springfield M-1842 Military Musket .69 Cal.-Rifled for Conical Ball. 

High quality example. These Mexican War era guns were issued in large quantities to both armies at the outbreak of the conflict. Some were rifled to increase their range and accuracy. Matching 1852 date on the lock and barrel. Lock and trigger mechanics are flawless. Metal surfaces are smooth and cleaned to bright. “VP” and eagle head proof present on breech. Bore is clean with strong three groove rifling. Ramrod and has correct inverted cone tip for the rifled guns. Stock is in good condition with no major issues. Minor wood chip adjacent to middle barrel band. Script “JS” US Military Inspector’s Cartouche visible on the flat opposite the lock. 


WP 12. 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. 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 13. 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 14. British Brass Barrel Naval Blunderbus with Integral Locking Bayonet. 

Early 1800’s deck clearing gun in original flintlock configuration. Lock, hammer, and bayonet show some pin-prick pitting from exposure to salt spray. Lock does not hold at cock and needs some attention from a gunsmith. Brass flared barrel measures 14.5″. Muzzle aperture is 1.25″. Overall length is 30″. Top of barrel is marked “LONDON”. Stock is in very good condition with no cracks or damage. Wooden ramrod is original. This is a really impressive looking weapon from the days of fighting sail and the War of 1812.


WP 15. 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 16. US M-1832 Artillery Short Sword by Ames Dated 1842.

Fine looking sword with an untouched patina. This classic American Civil War weapon was patterned after the Roman Gladius via the French.


WP 17. 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 18. 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 19. 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 20. 1842 Dated Spanish Miquelet Pistol .60 Cal.

Unusual large caliber percussion pistol with dog effigy hammer. Smooth metal surfaces with some burnout at the nipple. Maker marked “Franguren” on the trigger guard. Note arsenal stamp on top of breech. Barrel marked “En Eibar Ano 1842”. Stock has some wear and cracks. Ramrod is original. Brass butt cap.


WP 21. 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.

Both of these marks are referenced on pages 115-117 in the book “The English Connection” by Huey and Pritchard. 


WP 22. 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 23. 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.

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.

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.

Original walnut grips are excellent with US Military Inspector Cartouches on both sides.


WP 33. Rare Confederate Cavalry Saber Retailed by Hayden & Whilden of Charleston SC.

What we have here is a very rare saber. A number of light artillery sabers were acquired by the Charleston SC. retailer Hayden & Whilden from Thomas Griswold of New Orleans LA. This one has been modified with the addition of a cavalry style guard. I would be curious if another example like this one has ever been noted. The saber was originally acquired from a now closed United Daughters of the Confederacy Museum in Charleston. At that time, the branches on the guard were broken and the grip was decayed. Branches and grip have been restored. I suppose this type of guard was added by the retailer to convert some of the artillery sabers into cavalry sabers. The blade is semi-bright but graying with some period sharpening. Clearly stamped “HAYDEN & WHILDEN/CHARLESTON.” on the ricasso in the same style as the Griswold blades. Original brass scabbard is typical Griswold and has service dings and wear.

WP 34. Rare State of Louisiana Folding Bowie Knife.

This is the actual knife photographed on page 194 of Norm Flayderman’s reference book “The Bowie Knife.” Condition is excellent. Stag antler grips and silver bolsters. Measures 6″ closed and 10.5″ opened. Larger blade is marked “W & S HORRABIN/SHEFFIELD”. Bolsters feature the iconic Louisiana Pelican feeding its young.


WP 35. 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 36. Confederate Marked Enfield Rifle Musket Produced by Barnett of London .577 Cal.

A fine example of the British guns produced for the Confederacy and run through the Federal blockading squadron. This one is marked “BARNETT/LONDON” on the lock. Metal surfaces are smooth and gray to semi-bright. Lock and trigger mechanism functions properly. Original long range sight and ramrod are present. Bore is dirty but has distinct rifling. The stock has typical service wear and dings with some minor cosmetic cracks. At the terminus of the butt plate tang is a very sharp “SHC” over an arrow stamp which represents “Sinclair Hamilton & Co., the primary furnisher of arms to the Confederacy. 


WP 37. 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 38. 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 39. 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 40. Dug CS/US P-53 Enfield Rifle Musket Socket Bayonet .577 Cal.

WP 42. Dug CS/US Austrian Lorenz Rifle Socket Bayonet .54 Cal.

These rifles were popular with the Confederacy. Found long ago by the late Don Story on the Petersburg VA. Battlefield. Rare to see dug bayonets in this condition.


WP 43. 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 44. 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 45. 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 46. 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.

Each grip bears the outline of a US Military Inspectors Cartouche.
