MS 1. Confederate “Gardner Pattern” Canteen, marked “11th MS Reg.”.

A good representative example with an untouched deep patina to the wooden surface. The 11th Mississippi Infantry Regt. was a very hard fought unit that was mustered at Corinth MS. and later sent to Virginia where it participated in all of the major battles of the Army of Northern VA. There is also a “17” carved on the canteen, I don’t know what this represents, but the 17th Mississippi Regt. was also formed at Corinth. The three metal retainers have been fixed into place at a later date by small nails.

WW 1. Dug German SS Combat Helmet and SA Dress Dagger from France.

Both relics are in remarkable excavated condition. Helmet retains a good amount of original paint and has a visible SS decal. Areas of rust on the surface, particularly in the front. Leather liner intact but loose. The dagger retains most of its wooden grip. Blade is rusted firmly into the scabbard, but I believe it would come loose with some penetrating oil and careful manipulation. These Nazi artifacts were displayed together in a Texas collection but I cannot say for sure that they were found together. Unfortunately the provenance is verbal and not specific.

WP 1. Dublin Castle Short Land Pattern Brown Bess Musket .75 Cal. 

Classic British Military Musket of the American Revolutionary War in much better than average condition. Actually, this is one of the most original and untouched examples extant. Metal surfaces are smooth with a deep plum coloured patina. Lock is marked “DUBLIN CASTLE” and “G-R.” below a crown which is the Royal Cipher of His Majesty the King (Georgius Rex). Lock is mechanically sound. There is a British military broad arrow stamp to the right of the crown. The stock is remarkable in that it shows no signs of repairs, sanding or other monkey business. Very rare on a Brown Bess. There are some typical service blemishes. The brass hardware has a consistent mellow patina. Nose cap is made of pewter but appears original to the time of use. Ramrod is a second model variant and is original to the gun.

MS 5. Supplement to the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies (100 volumes, including 5-volume index).

For serious relic hunters that do research, this set of books will be a game changer. These volumes are relatively scarce and most relic hunters don’t even know they exist. All of the information left out of the original Official Records: the reports listed as “not located”, the reports the Confederates didn’t send in, the Union reports not sent in, misplaced or sent in late, correspondence, itineraries of the units, record of events, records of the secret service.  “An invaluable collection of primary source material.”-Civil War Magazine. ” The single most important publication for Civil war researchers in nearly a century.”-William Marvel, author and Civil War historian. Arrangement of material: Part I, Reports; Part II, Record of Events and Itineraries of the Units; Part III, Correspondence; Part IV, Index. Printed on acid-free paper, sturdy cloth binding with gold stamping, sewn not glued, reinforced hinges, easy to read. These volumes were produced by Broadfoot Publishing. I have the complete set, like new condition. Shop or show pick up only. The best price I can find for a complete used set is $4500.00.

BLT 1. Scarce CS Whitworth Hexagonal Bullet .45 Cal. 

Fine example with truncated cone cavity. Appears to be non-excavated but does come from the collection of the late Jack Wells who was a pioneer digger in the Fort Fisher NC area. Many bullets dug in that sand have this exact look. In addition to digging, Jack was an avid collector of Whitworth bullets, cartridges and artillery projectiles. Most Whitworth bullets found in the context of the American Civil War are the cylindrical pattern, but apparently the hexagonal pattern may have seen very limited us as there are some documented dug examples. The Whitworth bullet was used exclusively by Confederate sharp shooters employing the imported British Whitworth Rifle to great effect. Of all long arms used in the Civil War, the Whitworth was unmatched in accuracy and distance.

McClintock originally enlisted into Company C, 28th VA Vol. Infantry on May 15, 1861. He transferred to the Bedford Light Artillery Battery on August 15, 1861. On Oct.4, 1862, he transferred to the Purcell Light Artillery Battery of Richmond VA. This battery was in many major scraps and McClintock was wounded at the battle of Chancellorsville on May 2, 1863. Records show that he was captured at Petersburg on April 2, 1865. More research can be done on McClintock and the batteries he served with, but I think you can get the drift here.

SOLD
