MS 20. Identified Confederate Grouping of Pvt. James Harvey Spencer, 18th South Carolina Vol. Infantry.

Quite an interesting group of personal effects that once belonged to Confederate Veteran James Harvey Spencer of the 18th SC Vol. Inf. First we have his two walking canes. Spencer was evidently quite a talented wood carver. He lost a leg in battle at Petersburg and carved his self portrait on one of the cane handles in 3-D, wearing a Confederate uniform and missing his leg. The other cane, has a handle with a hand clutching a powder horn. Both very well executed, and I am sure that these canes assisted Spencer wherever he went until his death. Inside of a hand carved wooden box (also likely carved by Spencer) with sliding lid, are several small items from Spencer’s Confederate service. A complete set of five Confederate Script I buttons that came from his uniform jacket. Three wooden buttons which may have also come from a service jacket, a South Carolina Militia button, Four Federal uniform buttons and a “flower” button. There are two coin silver spoons and a fork as well as Spencer’s fine wooden cased compass. The box also contained Spencer’s obituary from the local paper (Pineville SC.). In addition to this is a remembrance card from his funeral. I also have a folder with Spencer’s Confederate service records as well as the regimental history of the 18th SC. Infantry.

WP 14. P-53 Enfield Rifle Musket .577 Cal. Identified to Issac W. Hashell, Co. E, 23rd Maine Vol. Inf.

One of my pickers down in Florida turned this Enfield up at an estate sale. The provenance comes from the family who was originally from Maine. Neatly punched into the brass trigger guard and tang is “I.W.H.” and “E XXIII”. There is a tag stating that Hashell was from Auburn Maine. The regimental history of the 23rd. Maine is somewhat unremarkable. They were mainly on guard duty around Washington DC. and their only casualties were 56 men who died of disease. The gun itself is in very good overall condition, apparently not seeing combat use. Smooth metal surfaces, intact long range sight, Lock and trigger function is tight. Bore sharp and clean. Stock has sharp edges with minor service dings. There is a small crack running from the breech to the nearest lock screw. There is an area near butt plate tang with some burn damage, probably from being too close to a camp fire. 

$2250.00
