Miscellaneous Relics

MS 1. Fantastic Confederate Canteen Identified to Private J.S. Astin, Co. I, 4th Texas Vol. Infantry. 

One of the finest Confederate canteens ever offered for sale. This canteen is published in Mike O’ Donnell’s book “Gettysburg Battlefield Relics and Souvenirs” as well as being featured on page 121 of  Sylvia and O’Donnell’s reference book “Civil War Canteens”. Face of canteen is finely carved by Astin with a five pointed star and “TEXAS” in the points with regimental “4” in the center. Also note “J.A. Co. I Corsicana TX.” carved on the margin as well as a rattlesnake complete with forked tongue and rattle on the tail. Condition is superb. Astin served with distinction being wounded at Gaines Mill and later at Chickamauga. Ex. John Graham, Ex. Terry Heilman collection.

MS 2. Excavated 7th Iowa Vol. Infantry Regt. Insignia.

Unusually large size. Made of cast lead and found in the camp of the 7th Iowa near the Shiloh TN. Battlefield (Hagy Farm). The 8th Iowa regiment also produced similar insignia found nearby.

MS 3. Extremely rare Texas Militia Artillery Officer’s Bit and Bridle Harness with Reins.

Very fancy Civil War period brass “snake” bit with an inlaid silver star on both sides. Confederate regulation block letter “A” rosettes (identical to the Confederate artillery coat buttons) are lead backed and are similar to the contemporary US Artillery pattern. Leather harness is original and has some areas of re-enforcement and re-stitching. All brass adjuster buckle are present as is a diamond shaped escutcheon bearing the number “42”. This may be a one of a kind custom harness made for a high ranking Texas Artillery Officer  and it appears totally Confederate as well. Quite remarkable indeed!

MS 5. US M-1850 Field and Staff Officer’s Sword and Belt Rig Identified to Col. Ira Washington Ainsworth, 177th New York Vol. Inf. Regt.

Very high quality identified grouping. The following is taken from The Union army: a history of military affairs in the loyal states, 1861-65 — records of the regiments in the Union army — cyclopedia of battles — memoirs of commanders and soldiers. Madison, WI: Federal Pub. Co., 1908. volume II. 
“One Hundred and Seventy-seventh Infantry,—Col., Ira W. Ainsworth; Lieut.-Cols., Frank Chamberlain, David M. Woodhall; Majs., David ‘M. Woodhall, Charles E. Davis. The nucleus of this regiment was the l0th National Guard, under Col. Ainsworth, which volunteered for nine months’ service and was accepted. It was recruited to the full number at Albany and vicinity, was organized at Albany, and there mustered into the U. S. service for nine months on Nov. 21, 1862. It left the state Dec. 16 for New Orleans, where it was assigned to the 3d brigade of Sherman’s division, afterwards the 3d brigade, 2nd division, 19th corps. It took part in skirmishes at McGill’s ferry, Pontchatoula, Civiques ferry and Amite river and was active throughout the siege of Port Hudson, where it fought gallantly in the general assault of May 27. Its loss during the siege was 23 killed and wounded. On the expiration of its term of service, the regiment returned to New York and was mustered out at Albany, Sept. 24, 1863”. Colonel Ainsworth’s sword and belt has been very well taken care of since the war ended. The photo copy I have, (included) shows Ainsworth wearing this very sword and belt rig. Sword retains original sharkskin grip and finely braided wire wrap. Gilt brass hand guard is sharply detailed and retains Ainsworth’s original Officer’s Sword Knot and Tassel. Throat washer present. Blade is superb with a mirror like lustre and sharp etching with patriotic themes on a frosted background. No maker mark present so most likely an imported blade. Steel scabbard has ornate brass mounts, drag and throat. Note blank presentation space on upper mount. The classic New York Militia belt rig was issued with the sword and still retains its original storage box with Colonel Ainsworth’s name written on the side in brown ink. The belt is simply superb. Supple black leather with intact brass hangers and fittings. The buckle has matching bench #18 stamped on the reverse, and on the keeper. Note applied silver “NY” and wreath. Truly exceptional!
