WP 3. 1861 Dated Confederate “Scott & Son” Contract P-53 Enfield Rifle Musket .577 Cal. 

Very good condition. Metal surfaces are smooth with a mellow patina. Lock is dated “1861” and functions sharply. There is a clear “S” stamped on the comb of the stock adjacent to the butt plate tang. This mark represents the Birmingham based contractor “W.C. SCOTT & SON” who supplied Enfields to the Confederacy. While there is no “JS” over Anchor” mark visible on the stock, there is a #16 stamped on the butt plate tang and the ramrod is numbered “921”. Original long range site is present and marked “W&S”. Bore is worn and dirty from combat use. Stock is in good condition with only minor service dings and a soldiers initials “B.T.B.” are carved on the butt stock. There is a twist in the wood working towards the end of the gun which you can notice in the pictures. I supplied a couple of photos of the gun hanging on the wall to illustrate this. I suppose with some care and effort this could be rectified. The leather shoulder sling is marked “S. ISSACS CAMPBELL & CO. JERMYN ST. LONDON”. I am not sure if sling is correct or a reproduction. 

SOLD

 

WP 4. US M-1861 Springfield Rifle Musket Dated 1861.

These 1861 dated Springfields are very hard to find in this condition. They were in high demand early in the war and were used and abused in combat. This one, while seeing some action, is still in very good condition with clean and bright metal surfaces. Lock performs sharply and is clearly dated 1861. Barrel date is worn. Bore is excellent and well defined. Original ramrod. Stock is exceptional with only very minor service blemishes. No cracks, missing wood, chatter or repairs. Two visible US Military Inspector cartouches on flat opposite the lock. A much better than average example.

SOLD 

 

WP 5. Confederate Artillery Short Sword produced by Leech and Rigdon. 

This cool weapon is patterned after the Roman Gladius and is the Confederate counterpart of the US M-1832 Artillery Short Sword produced by Ames. Condition is very good. Cast brass guard has an untouched patina, classic Leech and Rigdon “C” and “S” on the quillons. Blade and grip are tightly fitted with no wobble or looseness. No nicks on the blade which has an attic patina of light rust. More so on one side than the other which shows some original luster.

$3850.00

 

WP 6. Boyle & Gamble Confederate Field & Staff Officer’s Sword.

A very fine example with an untouched attic patina. Brass guard has sharp details featuring a “CS” below a single star and embraced within a wreath. Grip retains wire wrap and about 70% of the leather grip. Blade is smooth with a consistent grey colour and shows worn but visible etching on both sides. This iconic Confederate Sword was produced in Richmond VA. No scabbard.

$5395.00

 

MS 7. Relic Pocket Pistol Approximately .50 Cal.

Missing wooden grip. Action sort of works. From a California estate. These were carried by many soldiers as a last line of defense.

$150.00 HOLD

 

WP 8. 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. 

$17,500.00

 

WP 9. US Military Contract 2nd Model Colt Dragoon Revolver .44 Cal.

All matching serial #9120. This the scarcest of the Dragoon models with only 2700 being produced. Consistent light grey turning plum patina on smooth metal surfaces. Action is tight. Note “U.S.” Military Surcharge Stamp below cylinder. Clear Colt’s Patent Address on top of frame. Rear block sight is an addition from way back when this gun was carried. Cylinder scene completely worn. Bore is very good. Walnut grips are original and in good condition.

SOLD

 

WP 10. Confederate Artillery Saber and Scabbard produced by James Conning of Mobile, Alabama.

Very rare maker marked Confederate Artillery Saber (Serial #33) produced by James Conning for the State of Alabama. According to surviving serial numbers it is thought that only 150 or so were ever produced. Condition is very good with original wooden grip and wire (there was no leather wrap on these sabers). Brass knucklebow is marked “STATE OF ALA. 1862”. Blade is standard size for the Conning pattern, 28″ with quite a few minor nicks and a strong “JAMES CONNING MOBILE” Address on the ricasso. Scabbard is excellent with traces of original black enamel paint.

$15,995.00

 

WP 11. Scarce 1862 London Armoury Company Enfield Rifle Musket .577 Cal. with bayonet.

There is a very good chance that this weapon was used by the Confederacy considering that it does not have US or British Military proofs. A completely honest example with proper markings and rounded brass escutcheons retaining the lock screws. Lock is marked “L.A.C.” and dated “1862”. One of the great things about this gun is that it is absolutely untouched with a consistent attic patina. Lock is mechanically sound. Note double “L.A.C.” markings on breech. Bore is worn with combat use. Original long range site is present. Stock has typical service wear with no cracks or repairs. There is some minor crazing of the wood near the brass butt plate. Note “LONDON ARMOURY COMPANY BERMONDSEY cartouche on butt stock with 1862 date. Original ramrod is present as is the socket bayonet which I believe has been with the gun since the war. The patina matches barrel perfectly. It is marked “E. PRESTON MANCHESTER” and fits very tightly. A little work with some steel wool and solvent in the socket will make it fit much better. These L.A.C. Enfields are rare and this one definitely saw a lot of the action.

$2595.00

 

WP 12. Early Transitional Gwynn and Campbell Cavalry Carbine .52 Cal.

Scarce variant with 19″ barrel like the Cosmopolitan that it evolved from. Condition is excellent with very smooth metal surfaces and an ancient dark patina. Mechanically excellent. An extremely faint “GWYNN & CAMPBELL” arched patent address is present on the front side of the breech block and a clearer “UNION RIFLE” stamp is on the other side. Note early Serial # 106. Stock is very nice with only very minor blemishes from light service. Front blade site is a replacement. 

$2795.00

 

WP 13. Nashville Plow Works Confederate Cavalry Officer’s Saber.

High on the quality and condition scale with 100 % original and intact oxblood leather grip and braided wire wrap. The brass guard is untouched with the casting flaws and file marks you want to see. Please note the sharply cast “NASHVILLE PLOW WORKS” and “CSA”. Leather throat washer intact. Blade is smooth with no pitting or major nicks. Lap seamed scabbard is original to the saber with original brass mounts, iron rings, throat and drag. This is a very fine Confederate saber in great condition that you will never have to apologize for.

$12,500.00 

 

WP 14. Rare US M-1839 Buff Leather Cavalryman’s Carbine Sling.

Really nice, complete and full length (54″). Obviously untouched with evident campaign wear. Certainly not a surplus item. Sling swivel is marked “O.B. NORTH & CO. NEW HAVEN CT.” . Leather is in great condition, flexible with no repairs or alterations. The perfect item to display with any American Civil War Cavalry Carbine. You rarely see these for sale.

$1995.00 

 

WP 15. High quality “CSN” Marked Confederate Naval Cutlass with original Scabbard and Belt Frog.

Top notch example in every regard. Very rare with leather scabbard and canvas belt frog.

$12,500.00

 

WP 16. “R.T. Pritchett-London” marked Confederate Contract P-53 Enfield Rifle Musket .577 Cal.

A very fine example. This is one of the guns purchased by the Confederacy from England through Sinclair Hamilton & Co. and run through the Federal blockade. R.T. Pritchett of London was one of the major furnishers that filled Hamilton’s Confederate contract. Condition is very good overall with smooth metal surfaces and good wood to metal fit. Lock functions smoothly. Original ramrod and long range site are present. Bore is clean and rifling is well defined. Stock has good edges and only minor service wear. Note the “I.C.” within an oval cartouche on the flat opposite the lock. This is the viewer mark of Issac Curtis which is only seen on Confederate Enfields. The soldier that carried this gun carved the letter “B” on the same side. Perhaps this is indicative of Company “B”? Near the terminus of the trigger guard tang is the mark of Sinclair Hamilton & Co. which consists of a crown over “S” over “HC” above an arrow. This is a purely Confederate long arm that won’t break the bank. For more information on these Confederate Enfields, check out “The English Connection” authored by Corky Huey and Russ Pritchard.

WP 17. Rare Nashville Plow Works Mounted Artillery Officer’s Saber.

I have seen another example before of this rare saber and at the time I thought it was an aberration, perhaps just an unusually short cavalry officer’s saber but now I am convinced that it is actually a mounted artillery officer’s saber. These are actually mentioned being produced at the Nashville Plow Works factory along with the cavalry sabers. Note the length which is consistent with the US M-1840 Mounted Artillery Saber, also the accentuated curvature of the blade. You can see the photos where I have it shown next to a Nashville Plow Works Cavalry Saber for comparison. The stippled brass guard has an untouched attic patina with clearly cast “NASHVILLE PLOW WORKS” address and bold “CSA”. The leather grip and wire wrap is mostly intact though showing wear with use towards the pommel. Blade is dark gray with an unusually sharply defined unstopped fuller and a few minor nicks. Scabbard is remarkably nice and perfectly fitted to the saber. Note classic boat throat and small rings on the brass mounts.

WP 18. US M-1855 Harpers Ferry Arsenal Iron Mounted Rifle .58 Cal. with matching Harpers Ferry Arsenal Saber Bayonet and Scabbard.

Scarce gun. Only about 5700 of these rifles were produced and many were destroyed when the armory was burned by the Confederates in 1861. Dated 1859 on the lock. Metal is finished in the “National Armory Bright” which contrasts fantastically with the dark walnut stock. Original two leaf long range site and swelled tulip tipped ramrod are present. Bore is sharp and clean, possibly re-bored for shooting. Lock functions but is inconsistent holding at half cock. Maynard tape primer system advances properly. Brass nose cap is proper for this model. Stock is in very good condition with no major issues and relatively minor service wear. There is a faint US Military Inspector’s Cartouche present on the flat opposite the lock. Accompanying this fine rifle is a proper and perfectly fitted Harpers Ferry Arsenal Saber Bayonet with it’s original leather scabbard. The condition perfectly matches that of the gun. Note clear “US” stamp on ricasso. Quite a fierce looking weapon with the bayonet attached.

$4995.00

 

WP 19. US M-1864 Burnside Cavalry Carbine .54 Cal.

Remarkable condition with a lot of case colors on frame and traces of original factory finish on the barrel. Legible patent markings. Early 1864 production serial #8319.

$1350.00

 

WP 21. US M-1862 Sharps & Hankins Naval Carbine .52 Cal.

Here is a solid example of this unusual weapon. The barrel is covered in leather to protect it from the salty sea environment. Condition is very good overall with consistent and smooth metal surfaces. Strong patent markings on both sides of breech. Right side of the frame exhibits the address “SHARPS  & / HANKINS / PHILADA” in four lines while the left side frame shows the patent “SHARPS / PATENT / 1859”. Serial # 11800. Mechanics are excellent. Long range tangent sight is present. Bore is very good and well defined. Leather wrap is 98 % intact with tight stitching along the barrel seam. Stock has some minor service wear. Sling loop missing. 

$1750.00

 

WP 22. US M-1862 Sharps and Hankins Navy Carbine .52 Cal.

Produced by Christopher Sharps of Hartford Connecticut. These guns used a brass cased rimfire cartridge and about 8000 were made under military contract. Condition is excellent though missing the leather covering that was designed to protect it from the salt water environment encountered in Navy service. Also, it appears that the barrel has been cut down to 19″. Metal surfaces are smooth with traces of original factory blue finish on the barrel. Bore is clean and sharp. Mechanically excellent. Stock is in fantastic condition with hardly any service wear.

$1150.00

Two sharp Military Inspector’s Cartouches are visible on the flat opposite the lock as well as the viewer’s mark “W.C.K.”. Bore is sharp with strong rifling. Ramrod is original.

WP 27. Civil War Boot Pistol.

Very popular with soldier’s on both sides as a last line of defense. This one has scrolling decoration and nice grips. Cocking mechanism is not working, most likely due to a broken spring. Approximately .45 cal.

$225.00

One of the very first rimfire cartridge revolvers (.22 short). Serial # 38695 is squarely within mid Civil War  production. Condition is very nice with 95 % of silver plating intact on the brass frame and original Rosewood grips. Barrel and cylinder have clear patent markings.

Here we have a high quality example finished in the “National Armory Bright”. Matching 1863 dates on lock and barrel. Lock mechanics are crisp. Original long range site and ramrod are present.

A very fine gun with no issues. Clean and smooth surfaces on the barrel and frame. The left side of the frame is marked “SHARPS / PATENT / 1859”, the right side is marked “SHARPS / & / HANKINS / PHILADA” and the serial number 7457 is marked on the upper tang. The Army Type differs from the Navy Type in that it lacks the screws and screw holes in the breech end of the barrel for retaining the leather covering. Only 500 of these rare guns were produced. Sliding and firing mechanism are excellent. Nice clean bore.

$1995.00

 

WP 35. Scarce Allen & Wheelock Four Shot Pepperbox Pistol.

Early serial # 392. Untouched and consistent attic gray patina with areas of light pitting particularly at the end of the fluted barrel cylinder. All patent markings visible on barrel and hammer. Mechanically sound.

$495.00

 

WP 36. First Model Maynard Cavalry Carbine .37 Cal.

These weapons were heavily favored by Confederate Cavalry and were purchased in quantity prior to the war by the States of Georgia, Mississippi and Florida. Others were also purchased by units in South Carolina, Tennessee and other Southern States in smaller quantities. This one is in good but well used condition. Consistent patina with prick peppering to all metal surfaces and legible Maynard Patent addresses on frame and patch box door. Curiously the serial # 1933 is stamped on the Maynard Tape Primer door and # 1633 is stamped on the barrel. Possibly a dyslexic error? It appears that the barrel has been with this gun since it came from the factory. Mechanics are sound. The stock has minor service wear and scratches. Note silver Crescent inlaid into the stock, possibly indicative of Louisiana or the 11th US Army Corps? 

$2995.00

 

WP 37. “First Model” Martially Marked “U.S.” M-1848 Colt Dragoon Revolver .44 Cal.

A good representative example that won’t break the bank. All matching serial # 3254 except for wedge which is unmarked. Untouched grey turning plum colored patina with mostly clean and smooth metal surfaces. Some small areas of mild pitting on frame and cylinder. Cylinder scene completely worn. “U.S.” Military Surcharge Stamp present below cylinder. Walnut grips are original but worn from much service. Action is a little sloppy but functional.

$4500.00

 

WP 38. US M-1858 Starr Army Revolver .44 Cal.

A fine representative example of this popular Civil War revolver. All matching serial # 7808. Smooth metal with a grey turning plum patina. Clear patent markings. Good bore. Both original walnut grips are in great shape and bear US Military Inspector Cartouches. Double action mechanics are solid.

CHICOPEE MASS.” address at ricasso. Typical Ames engraving on blade with Federal Eagle and “U.S.” clearly visible. Scabbard is very good with possible repair in a couple of spots.

$895.00

 

WP 41. US M-1860 Enlisted Cavalryman’s Saber by Mansfield and Lamb dated 1864.

A very good example of the iconic American made Civil War Cavalry Saber. Clear “MANSFIELD & LAMB FORESTDALE RI.” Address on one side of the ricasso and “US” over 1864 date on the other.

WP 42. US M-1862 Transitional Joslyn Cavalry Carbine .52 Cal.

A good representative example with an untouched attic patina. Matching serial # 2919. The Joslyn carbine fired a standard Spencer rimfire cartridge of .52 caliber. Joslyn’s unique loading arrangement consisted of opening up the hinged breechblock, pivoting the breechblock to the left and then inserting a single round. The method of opening the breech on the original model 1862 used a hook-type friction latch. This carbine employs the later model pull-out knob latch. Fladerman’s guide lists this a scarce transitional detail between the m-62 and m-64 carbines. Fully functional mechanics. Smooth metal with no major pitting. “JOSLYN FIRE ARMS CO. STONINGTON CONN.” address is present on lock plate but weak. Carbine sling bar and ring are present. Bore is in good condition. Stock is better than average with only minor service wear. Faint US Military Inspector’s Cartouche present above sling bar.

$1995.00

 

WP 43. Underground Railroad Bowie Knife and Scabbard found in a Baltimore Tunnel during construction in 1911-12.

This massive Bowie has an interesting leatherette over wood scabbard. There is an old tag attached to it stating “Knife found in tunnel when excavation done in building Monumental Life Insurance Building. Baltimore MD. 191-2. Civil War Underground R.R.”. The knife itself is of very sturdy construction with a thick sword like blade. Note brass insert at terminus of the handle. Measures approx. 20″ overall. A very neat and historic relic from Maryland’s divided Civil War past.

$3995.00

 

WP 44. US M-1840 Enlistedman’s Light Artillery Saber by Ames dated 1862.

Great representative example of this iconic, American made Civil War Saber. AMES Scroll mark is present though faint on one side of the ricasso. The reverse has a clear 1862 date.

$950.00

 

WP 45. US M-1860 Spencer Repeating Cavalry Carbine.

This iconic weapon made an immediate impact upon the war and was first deployed (the rifle) at the Battle of Hoover’s Gap TN. in June of 1863 and then later at the Battle of Gettysburg. The carbine offered here has serial #47094. The metal surfaces on the breech and barrel are smooth with an untouched gray turning plum patina. Lever action and lock mechanics are very good. Bore is clean with well defined rifling. Stock has minor service wear and no major issues. Note two US Military Inspector’s Cartouches visible on the wrist. The trooper that carried this carbine wrapped a strip of leather around the saddle ring to dampen the noise. 

$2650.00

 

WP 46. US M-1832 Artillery Short Sword.

Nice untouched example. Dated 1836 and marked “UNITED STATES” on one side of ricasso with partially legible “N.P. AMES” address on the other. Note US military inspector marks on blade and brass guard. Blade has no nicks. A lot of relic for the $$. These fearsome swords were patterned after the famous Roman Gladius and the American version was copied from the French model.

WP 47. Smith & Wesson Army Revolver inscribed to Col. Jesse Hale Moore, 115th Illinois Vol. Infantry Regt.

Jesse Hale Moore was a remarkable soldier and then a distinguished statesman after the war. I have a complete folder with Moore’s detailed biographical history that is included with his revolver. I believe that this fine gun was possibly presented to Moore by his men in 1864. Condition is excellent.

WP 53. Confederate Holster for Navy Revolver Identified to “P. B. Robison, 7th VA”.

This holster has smooth and supple leather and fits a Colt Navy or Leech and Rigdon Revolver perfectly.

I will leave it up to the buyer to do more research.
