MS 2. Nice 6th Plate Tintype of a 7th PA. Regt. Cavalryman and his 1863 Dated US M-1860 Light Cavalry Saber by C.Roby.

Recently found at a family estate sale in Florida by one of my pickers. A very clear 6th Plate Tintype shows a veteran Cavalryman armed with a distinctly Roby M-1860 Saber (note grip similar to M-1840) and a 4 screw Colt M-1860 Army Revolver .44 Cal. I have no positive identification but there is a small tab of paper inside the image case that states “7. PA. CAV.”. Unfortunately his name is missing. Note shiny waterproof cover on his kepi and clear US M-1851 Saber Belt Buckle with complete rig and shoulder strap. The saber has an old, possibly wartime repair of the wire wrap and is marked on the ricasso “C. ROBY W. CHELMSFORD MS.” as well as “US” and “1863” date with inspector mark “M” on the other side. This saber is no doubt 100% the very one pictured in the photo. Perhaps some dedicated research will reveal who this cavalryman is. As for the 7th PA. Volunteer Cavalry Regiment, it was a very hard fought unit in the Western Theater of operations, particularly the Army of The Ohio and The Cumberland.

WP 1. Harper’s Ferry Arsenal M-1855 Rifle Musket .58 Cal. 

A top notch example with matching 1858 date on the barrel and the lock plate. Smooth and clean metal surfaces throughout. Clear “VP” and Eagle Head Proof as well as “W.C.K.” on the breech. Lock and Maynard Tape Priming System function crisply. Stock is in superb condition with sharp edges and no evidence of sanding. 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. All Harper’s Ferry guns are scarce and desirable, especially in this condition.



MS 3. US M-1858 “Bullseye” Canteen with cover and strap. Maker marked “PORTER, HADDEN & BOOTH”.

Very good condition with faded blue wool cover. Original leather strap is complete but separated at the junction which can be easily repaired. Maker mark on spout.



WW II 1. German Wehrmacht Infantry Belt Rig with Ammunition Pouches and K-98 Bayonet.

Remarkable condition with maker marks on belt and frog. Belt dated 1939. Bayonet is in near mint condition with copious blue finish on blade and matching serial # 9189. Dated 1940 and marked “P. WEYERSBERG”. Note obvious service wear. This is a very nice early war Infantry Belt.



WW II 2. German Luftwaffe Dress Dagger, Scabbard and Chain.

Good condition, 100% original and honest. Great patina on all surfaces. Blade is bright with “PAUL WEYERSBERG” maker mark on the ricasso. Scabbard is complete with some wear to the leather wrap on one edge.



CART 1. Dug US Agar “Coffee Mill” Machine Gun Cartridge .58 Cal.

Rare cast iron cartridge body with original percussion cap. Found near Richmond VA. (Seven Days Campaign). 



WP 2. 1861 Dated Confederate P-53 Enfield Rifle Musket .577 Cal. With “ISSACS & CAMPBELL” Marked Shoulder Sling.

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 original leather shoulder sling is clearly marked “S. ISSACS CAMPBELL & CO. JERMYN ST. LONDON”. This sling alone is rare and quite valuable. 



MS 4. Dug Mess Kit from US Cavalry Camp.

Plate is fashioned from half of a US M-1858 Canteen. Large pewter spoon is complete and in good condition. Found in a US Cavalry camp guarding a ford on Flat Creek near Mascot, TN.

$45.00 HOLD J.V.


ART 1. Dug US/CS 12 lb. Shot from Shiloh, TN.

Superb condition. Found many years ago by Tedford Coln on his own property which saw heavy action early in the battle on April 6, 1862. This iconic projectile was used in 12 lb. Howitzers and Napoleon Guns.



ART 2. Rare dug US 2.25″ Hale Rocket.

Remarkable condition with no repairs or issues. One of the best excavated examples you will ever see. Note matching serial #44 on both the body and the warhead. A Hale Rocket Battery was deployed on the May 1862 Seven Pines VA. Battlefield and I believe that is where this specimen was found many moons ago.



ART 3. Dug Confederate 6 lb. Shot from Shiloh, TN.

Superb condition with visible mold seam. Found many years ago by Tedford Coln on his own property which saw heavy action early in the battle on April 6, 1862. 



WP 3. 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.



WP 4. Rare P-53 Barnett Marked Artillery Carbine with Saber Bayonet.

Scarce in any condition, this example is very nice. Lock is marked “BARNETT LONDON”. J.E. Barnett and Sons, “consistently sold their arms to Confederate agents and southern buyers throughout the war” (The English Connection, p. 17.) They dealt not only with the Confederate Ordnance Department, but also with the states of Georgia and South Carolina through S. Isaac, Campbell & Co. Metal surfaces are mostly smooth with minor peppering near the breech. Consistent gray turning plum patina on all parts. Lock functions flawlessly. Proper two leaf long range site is present as well as the saber bayonet lug on the side of the barrel. Bore has some wear but is well defined. Original ramrod. Stock is in very good condition as well with only a couple of minor age cracks. One at the terminus of the lock and another extending from one of the lock screws as seen in the photos. A nice “CHAVASSE” marked Saber Bayonet with its original leather scabbard accompanies the gun. Horace Chavasse was also a prominent and noted supplier to the Confederacy. The bayonet fits perfectly and affords this weapon a fearsome appearance. This is a rare gun and was most likely Confederate used.



MS 5. Dug Confederate Cavalry Saddle Shield.

Clear “CS” stamp. this is the scarcer more pointed variety. Great patina. Verbal provenance of Central VA. 



WP 5. 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.

Rare pattern with unusually long neck and intact iron rowell. Provenance of Chattanooga TN. area.

A very neat relic from the November 1863 “Battle Above The Clouds”. Bullet is well defined and not distorted.



MS 8. Dug Memphis Novelty Works “CS” Marked Cavalry Officer’s Spur.

The firm that produced this spur was also known as “Leech and Rigdon”. They were a prolific contractor/manufacturer originally based in Memphis TN. producing Swords, bowie knives, cutlasses, belt rigs, spurs and many other kinds of military equipment. This spur is in remarkable early dug condition with intact iron rowell and smooth patina. I forgot exactly where it was dug but I think Middle Tennessee.



MS 9. Dug Tennessee Militia Officer’s Bridle Rosette.

This rare rosette was dug in a Confederate position along the Atlanta defensive lines by Johnny Bobo. Note full lead and Tennessee State Seal. It appears to have been found in a creek. Excellent condition. 

$650.00 HOLD D.C.


MS 10. Dug Confederate “CS” Marked Cavalry Saddle Shield.

Perfect condition with a smooth brown patina. Provenance of Central VA. near Suffolk.



WP 6. US M-1832 Artillery Short Sword.

Nice untouched example. Dated 1844 with “N.P. AMES” Address and US military inspector marks on blade and brass guard. Blade has some very minor 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.



CSBP 1. Dug Confederate Officers Belt Buckle.

Flawless CS “Coin Style” Tongue and Wreath Buckle. Both pieces found together with a matching patina. No repairs or issues. Provenance uncertain. Ex. Joe Haile Collection.

ART 7. Dug and Sectioned US 12 lb. Bormann Case Shot.

Great example neatly cut in half and exposing the iron case shot balls in black pitch matrix. You can also see the inner workings of the Bormann Time Fuse. These projectiles were particularly deadly and upon detonation would shower the shrapnel in all directions. Artillerists were trained to explode them directly above advancing enemy troops. Provenance uncertain.



ART 8. Dug US 3″ Type II Parrott Shell.

Very good overall condition. Zinc percussion fuse is present but deteriorated. Perfect brass Type II sabot. Provenance uncertain.



ART 9. Dug 32 lb. Confederate Spherical Shell.

Near mint condition. Note mold seam and general crudeness. Found back in the 1960’s near the Gettysburg PA. Battlefield. As far as I know, there were no 32 lb. guns at Gettysburg and I suppose it is possible that the shell may have been intended to decorate a monument as was commonly done at the turn of the century. whether true or not, this is a scarce shell in fantastic condition. This type used a wooden adapter for the paper time fuse.



ART 10. Dug US Schenkl Percussion Fuse.

Better than average condition. Ground action obscures the Schenkl patent address and may be improved with cleaning. Dug by the late Johnny Bobo. Atlanta Campaign.

Super slick. Note crude mold seam. Dug at Helena Arkansas by Bill Shaner.
