WP 1. Nice State of Georgia marked P-53 Barnett Enfield Rifle Musket .577 Cal. delivered in 1862 by the Blockade Runner “Economist”.

These guns are exceedingly rare especially in this condition. Only about 20 are known to still exist in this configuration. Lock is clearly marked “BARNETT LONDON” and functions crisply. All metal surfaces are smooth with an untouched and consistent patina. Original long range sight is present. The stock is remarkable for its condition and its markings. There is a large letter “G” stamped into the side of the butt stock. It is weak but definitely there and my pictures don’t do it justice. Adjacent to the top side butt plate tang is the “CH over 1” within a circle cartouche. This is the stamp for viewing team Issac Curtis and Charles Hughes whose mark is found strictly on Confederate guns. The butt plate toe has manifest # 2208 clearly stamped into it which places this Enfield in the range listed on the Blockade Runner “Economist” manifest. This weapon was delivered in mid March, 1862 at Charleston Harbor, SC. Let us now further note the condition of the stock with its well defined edges and very minor service wear. No cracks or repairs. Original ramrod is present and unmarked which is proper for this configuration. Bore is superb with sharp rifling. Serious Confederate collectors know how rare this gun is and it does come straight from a long time and high quality private arms collection. 

$9500.00

 

WP 2. Thomas Griswold & Co. marked Confederate Naval Cutlass.

Strongly marked on the ricasso “THOMAS GRISWOLD & CO. NEW ORLEANS” and a high quality example. No issues other than some small areas of pin prick pitting on the blade. Brass hilt is very nice and sharply cast.

MS 1. Cased “WIEGAND & SNOWDEN” Marked Surgeon’s Amputation Kit.

Complete set including two bone saws, amputation knives (one blade broken), bleeder, tourniquet and other instruments. This kit was actually used and is not a pretty show set.

MS 1. Rare Military Holster for the M-1848 Colt Dragoon Revolver marked “E.GAYLORD CHICOPEE MASS.”.
