WP 3. Lieutenant Thomas Pinckney Gurley’s M-1851 Colt Navy Revolver, Co. C, 4th Alabama Cavalry, Implicated in the shooting of Brigadier General Robert L. McCook.

Thomas’ brother was Captain Frank B. Gurley of the same company and regiment. Both of these men were fierce fighters under Cavalry commander General Nathan Bedford Forrest. A biography of Captain Gurley is included along with voluminous Confederate service records and information about the Confederate provenance of this particular Colt Navy Revolver. All matching serial # 99380 is in the range of guns purchased by the State of Alabama or retailers such as James Conning of Mobile. Note Hartford Connecticut barrel address. On August 5th, 1862 near New Market Alabama an incident occurred, more exactly a skirmish in which an ill Federal Brigadier Gen. Robert Latimore McCook was being escorted in a wagon at the tail end of a Federal Infantry column but supported by a bodyguard of cavalry that came under attack from Confederate Cavalry, notably the 4th Alabama under Captain Frank B. Gurley. Captain Gurley and his brother Lieutenant Thomas P. Gurley were at the vanguard of the attack and at the initial contact with the wagon. More than one trooper fired at the wagon not knowing that General McCook was an occupant or according to Confederate witnesses was driving the wagon trying to escape and not wearing his uniform but an undershirt. There was consternation and confusion. The end result being a bullet hitting McCook in the abdomen and him dying hours later. Both brothers were accused of murder and both had fired shots, but Frank was to bear the ultimate blame and ire of the Unionists. Both brothers were captured after the Battle of Chickamauga and there is a lot more to this story but essentially the story of Lieutenant Thomas Gurley is overshadowed by the ordeal and near execution of his older brother for the “murder” of General McCook. Lieutenant Gurley’s revolver itself is in remarkably good condition with a tight frame, clean metal surfaces and clear markings. Cylinder scene is more than discernible. The original walnut grips are in really good condition. “T.P. Gurley” is neatly carved into the bottom of one of them. The revolver is also mechanically sound and indexes sharply. It is interesting to wrap ones mind around the mute witness of this weapon which saw many savage life and death struggles from Parkers Crossroads to Chickamauga. Don’t think for a minute that Lieutenant Thomas Gurley was shirking in this business because he was surely right at his brothers side in all of this as is witnessed in the McCook affair. This revolver truly did “ride with Forrest” and may very possibly have fired the deadly shot that killed General McCook.

WP 4. US M-1860 Light Cavalry Saber by Ames dated 1864.

A superb example, all original leather grip and wire wrap totally intact. Untouched patina on brass hand guard and pommel. Blade is smooth with only minor flea bite nicks. Marked “AMES MFG. CO. CHICOPEE MASS.” on one side of the ricasso and “US” over “1864” and inspector initials “C.E.W.” on the other. Scabbard is excellent and dent free. A classic wartime dated American Civil War weapon.

$950.00 

 

WP 5. Confederate Cavalry Officer’s Saber produced by the College Hill Arsenal, Nashville Tennessee.

Great looking saber with crisply cast “C.S.A.” along the bottom of the stippled brass guard. Classic textbook example. Note casting flaws in hilt particularly near the “A”. Leather wrap long missing but braided wire is intact. Blade is smooth with only a couple of minor nicks. This weapon stands on it’s own with no scabbard and would display great in any collection.

$5995.00 HOLD E.F.

 

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.

$5750.00

 

WP 7. Extremely Rare US Navy Colt Revolving Rifle .64 Cal.

Martially Marked “U.S.N.” below the long range sight on the side of the barrel. Smooth metal throughout and all matching serial # 27 on frame, butt plate and trigger guard tang. There are traces of original blue finish on the cylinder. Clear “COL. COLT HARTFORD CT. USA” address on top of the frame. Weak but present “PATENTED SEPT. 10th 1850” address on the cylinder. Visible behind the cylinder is another patent address “COLT’S PATENT NOV. 24th 1857”. The rifle is mechanically sound with crisp cylinder rotation and indexing. Long range sight is present as well as the original cleaning rod. Stock is very nice with only minor service wear. The original brass cleaning jag is present inside the butt plate compartment. Bore is excellent with very sharp rifling.

SOLD

 

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.

$6500.00

 

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.

$16,995.00

 

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.

$2750.00

 

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. 

$2550.00

 

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.

$11,995.00 

 

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.

$2250.00 

 

WP 15. US M-1859 Sharps Cavalry Carbine .52 Cal.

According to the Springfield Research Records this carbine, serial # 48753 was issued just a few numbers apart from #48732 which went to Co. G of the 1st Maryland Vol. Cavalry Regt. Of course there is no way to state with certainty that this gun went to that unit but it is definitely quite possible. Condition is quite above average with clean metal surfaces, legible, patent markings, fine mechanics and a good bore with defined rifling. Stock is very nice with sharp unsanded edges. Evidence of saddle wear on the butt stock and only very minor service blemishes on the wood. 

$2850.00 HOLD

 

WP 16. Large Silver Handled Fighting Knife.

Unmarked Sheffield Type with double edged blade and ornate solid silver handle. 14″ overall length. I have seen wartime images of soldiers with this exact knife shoved in their belts. Excellent condition.

$595.00

 

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. 

$12,500.00 Reduced!

 

WP 18. Civil War period Side Knife.

American Civil War Troops on both sides carried these knives and they were used to do everything. Whittle, cut up apples, skin varmints and stab enemies as a last line of defense. This knife still retains its edge and has antler grips. Brass cross guard is loose. 

$195.00

 

WP 19. US M-1864 Warner Cavalry Carbine .50 Cal.

About 1,500 of these guns were made for James Warner by the Massachusetts Arms Company circa 1864. Brass breech block hinged on the right side, extraction by manual slide at bottom rear of fore stock, 20″ barrel with iron barrel band, 2-leaf rear sight and unique Warner half round steel front sight. Matching early serial#38 on breech block, butt plate and frame. Left side of frame marked “JAMES WARNER, SPRINGFIELD, MASS”. Mechanically sound. Bore is well defined but shows wear. Metal surfaces are mostly smooth with a dark patina. Stock is very nice and appears to have been refinished long ago. No inspector cartouches visible. This Warner Carbine definitely saw service and may have been with Gen. James Wilson’s Alabama raid in 1865. The scarce .50 Cal. Warner cartridges are found in the wake of this raid, particularly at Gravelly Springs and Waterloo, Alabama.

$3250.00 HOLD J.K.

 

 

WP 20. US M-1863 Remington “New Model” Army Revolver .44 Cal.

$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.

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.

$1250.00

$3850.00

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.

$250.00

WESSON’S PATENT/OCT. 25 1859″ and “B. KITTREDGE & CO./CINCINATTI O.” is stamped on top of the barrel though faint from wear. Serial # 3280.

Stock is also very good with only minor service dings and wear. A good representative example that saw service in the war.

$2150.00

Nice looking revolver in very good condition. Fully functional. Dark grey patina on smooth metal surfaces. Post Civil War serial # 45666. Nice Rosewood grips. A good representative example.

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.

$550.00

 

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? 

$3250.00

A good representative example that won’t break the bank. All matching serial # 3254 except for wedge which is unmarked.

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.
