WP 15. M-1859 Brass Mounted Sharps Cavalry Carbine .52 Cal.

Here we are offering a top notch example of the scarce Brass Mounted M-1859 Sharps Carbine. Only 3000 of these were produced with 1600 going to the State of Georgia in 1860. 400 others were sold commercially on the market. Some unknown quantity went to the US Government. The serial # range for these guns starts at 30000. This gun has no US military inspector marks and is serial # 30264. Very smooth gunmetal with a mostly gray turning plum patina. Clear Sharps Patent markings on frame, long range sight and barrel. Breech block is clean with no signs of abuse or hard use. Bore is well defined. Stock is in remarkable condition with sharp edges and few blemishes. There is some saddle wear which tells us that this gun did see cavalry service. Note thin crack at terminus of the lock plate which is purely cosmetic and goes along with the grain. I haven’t seen a brass mounted Sharps carbine of this quality in a while.

Condition: All matching serial #102609 except for wedge, which is Colt but unmarked. Mostly smooth gunmetal with an untouched natural plum patina. some silver plating remains on trigger guard. Hammer and trigger mechanics are good and cylinder indexes properly. Clear Colt patent markings on barrel and frame. Better than average cylinder scene. Original grips retain the majority of their factory varnish and have no repairs or missing wood. Note Littleberry A. Marston’s initials neatly scratched at the bottom of the butt strap. Overall a very good example that saw considerable action but was well taken care of. Concerning the provenance: There is a nicely compiled notebook that includes a Colt Factory letter on #102609, a detailed COA letter from Shannon Pritchard of Old South Antiques, information and photos from the family and detailed records of Marston’s Confederate service. The 3rd VA. Cavalry Regt. was involved in many scraps with the Yankees and Marston was eventually wounded in the leg at the Battle of Kelly’s Ford near Brandy Station. Marston recovered and continued to serve in various capacities until the end of the war. I have included photos of the paperwork that covers more precisely the details of Marston’s life and service. There is a lot more information in the notebook, I am showing only the most pertinent.

SOLD D.C.

 

WP 20. Rare US M-1862 Merwin & Bray Ballard Carbine .52 Cal.

Merwin & Bray contracted with Dwight Chapin & Co. of Bridgeport Conn. to produce these rare carbines in the larger .52 Cal. that would accommodate the successful Spencer Rimfire Cartridge. Supposedly only 115 of these were produced but this one is numbered 278 and is devoid of the DWIGHT CHAPIN & Co. mark usually seen above the MERWIN & BRAY address on the receiver. Condition is excellent. You could take this gun out and fire it all day, no problem. Gun metal surfaces are smooth and have an untouched gray, barely turning plum patina. No pitting whatsoever. Marked “MERWIN & BRAY AGT’S. N.Y. / 278” on one side of receiver and “BALLARD’S PATENT / NOV 5. 1861” on the other. Mechanics and ejector mechanism are flawless.

WP 21. Deane & Adams Double Action Revolver .442 Cal. with 4th VA. Cavalry, CSA Association.

Good quality double action revolver imported from England. Barrel address is weak but reads “Deane, Adams and Deane 30 King William St. London Bridge”. Note engraved scroll work on the frame. This revolver was originally brought into the Union Drummer Boy shop in Gettysburg by a couple who had it passed down in their family. The only information they knew was that their ancestor was a member of the 4th VA. Cavalry, and his last name was “Rose”. Brendan Synammon purchased the gun from them, and at the time it was in its original rosewood case with all the accessories. There are two members of the 4th VA. Cavalry Regt. with the name Rose. The cased gun was subsequently purchased by a Cavalry collector in Texas and after some time, he suffered a break in and robbery in which the gun was stolen. At length, the gun was eventually recovered by the police but the case was lost. Revolver is mechanically sound and original in every regard. Exhibits actual service wear. A COA from Brendan Synammon of the Union Drummer Boy accompanies the revolver as well as service records of the two soldiers named “Rose” and a detailed history of the 4th VA. Cavalry Regt.

Original grips retain almost all of their original varnish and exhibit a few service dings. Overall, a great representative example of the 1862 Police model.

There is substantial blue finish remaining on the frame and barrel. All matching serial # 48223 on frame, cylinder and barrel. Cocking, cylinder rotation and trigger mechanism functions tightly. The original walnut grips are also in great condition with Morrison’s initials “TM” carved on one side. There is a US Military Inspectors Cartouche present on the same grip. The holster is in good condition as well with supple leather and intact latch tab. Leather plug at tip is missing in action. Holster has been with the gun since the war. Morrison’s 6th plate tintype is clear and he is shown seated with his kepi though not in typical uniform. A notebook accompanies the grouping that contains Morrison’s service records and other family information but I cannot access it at the time of this writing. Later on, I will add more information. The 18th VA, Cavalry participated in many notable campaigns and raids including Gettysburg, and many actions in the Shenandoah Valley area including the Battle of New Market.
