CSBP 1. Confederate Enlistedman’s Accoutrement Belt. 

Exceptionally good condition with a scarce and desirable “Breckinridge” style CS stamped brass belt plate. Civil War period leather belt appears to be original to the buckle but I cannot verify this definitively. It has certainly been with it for a long time. Note double stamped “CS” on the plate similar to the buckle listed on page 86, Plate 149 in Steve Mullinax’s “Confederate Belt Buckles and Plates” reference book. These belts were issued to Western Theater troops. Comes from a long time Tennessee collection. 

$6995.00

 

WP 1. US M-1840 Flintlock Contract Musket by “D. NIPPES”, Dated 1843 .69 Cal.

One of 5100 muskets produced by Daniel Nippes of Mill Creek PA. Musket is in very good condition with original unconverted flint lock configuration (most of the US flintlock guns were converted to percussion for service in the Civil War). Clear matching 1843 date on lock and barrel. Strong lock spring holds at half cock but not at full cock. Metal surfaces are smooth and semi bright with scattered light oxidation. Bore is clean with light scattered pitting. Original threaded ramrod present. Stock is very nice with sharp un-sanded edges and only minor service blemishes.

$2650.00

 

WP 2. US M-1860 Colt Army Revolver .44 Cal.

Here we are offering a very good example of the iconic American Civil War Colt Army Revolver. All matching early 1863 production serial #89427 on all parts including the wedge. Smooth metal surfaces with a gray aged patina. Trigger mechanism and cylinder indexing work properly. Cylinder scene worn. Original walnut grips are in very good shape. One bears a US Military Inspectors Cartouche. There are also small sub inspector marks on frame, cylinder and trigger guard. This is a military issued revolver that certainly saw action in the Civil War.

SOLD

 

WP 3. Type B Richmond Arsenal Rifle Musket .58 Cal.

Good representative example of this Confederate produced long arm. Lock functions properly and is marked “C.S.” over “RICHMOND VA.” Lock is dated “1863” but is obscured by pin prick pitting. Gun metal exhibits a dark gray/plum colored patina with scattered areas of pin prick pitting. Brass butt plate and nose cap. “VP” over eagle head proof visible on breech but also obscured by pitting. Original sling loops present. Long range leaf sight has been replaced by a fixed block sight. This modification may have been done at the armory during the war. No rifling discernible in the bore. The end of the barrel shows evidence of being lightly tamped on a hard surface. Middle barrel band has been replaced. The ramrod may also be a Confederate armory replacement as it appears to have been with the gun since the war. Stock is in good condition with typical service wear. Behind the lock is the requisite “Mule Shoe” cut out that typical of Richmond produced stocks. An honest Richmond that is priced reasonably. Originally purchased from the Horse Soldier shop in Gettysburg.

CSBP 2. Confederate Enlistedman’s Accoutrement Belt.

These belts were issued to Western Theater troops. Ex. Norm Flayderman Collection.

Cylinder rotation and trigger mechanism works properly. Good cylinder scene. Original walnut grips retain 80% of the factory varnish.

WP 6. Blockade Run Confederate P-56 Saddle Ring Cavalry Carbine .577 Cal. Marked “E.P. BOND/LONDON” and associated with Texas Cavalry Troops.

These particular guns marked “E.P. BOND” and stamped with a “JS” over an anchor on the comb of the stock, are thought to have been brought into Texas after November of 1864, via a blockade runner based in Havana Cuba. All known identified specimens have Texas association as noted in an article by Mark Callahan, North South Trader Civil War magazine, Vol. XXVII No. 3. This particular gun comes from the late Fred Donaldson collection and is in good condition. Metal surfaces have a dark untouched patina. Lock functions properly and has a strong “E.P. BOND” over “LONDON” stamp. The bore has distinct rifling with some pitting. Stock has an attractive appearance with a dark patina and service wear. Minor wood loss near the breech and some very well done crack repairs around the lock and trigger guard. Breech is stamped with correct London proofs. Swivel ramrod assembly removed long ago and an Enfield type replacement with a threaded tip has been added. This was no doubt done intentionally for ease of loading.

CSBP 3. Confederate Enlistedman’s Accoutrement Belt.

$5995.00

 

CSBP 5. Confederate Enlistedman’s Accoutrement Belt.

The buckle has a very attractive and untouched patina. Displays like a champ. These iconic buckles were strictly issued to Western Theater troops.

WP 7. Confederate “Cloverleaf” Pike Marked “H. STEVENS”.

These absurd medieval weapons were inspired by a lack of firearms early in the war. Some collectors believe these are actually flagstaffs.

This grouping consisting of McMillen’s M-1860 Light Cavalry Saber, a 6th plate tintype of McMillen in uniform and a long letter dated May 26, 1864 from Vicksburg MS. to his wife Harriet. I acquired these items directly from a family member who has provided a brief letter with some useful information in tracking down this soldier’s unit identification. They mention that he was from Mattoon Illinois and was a member of Sherman’s Army of The Tennessee. After the war, McMillen was a Republican Committee man in Coles County Ill. The Saber is in very good untouched condition. Original grip and wire wrap is excellent. Blade is smooth and clearly marked on the ricasso,”C. ROBY/WEST CHELMSFORD MASS.” as well as “1864/U.S/A.G.M.” on the other side. Scabbard is dent free with an untouched brown patina. The cased tintype is a bit dark and may contain a lock of Harriet’s hair. Note nice patriotic leatherette case.
