New Arrivals 268

Here we have a good Model 1818 U.S. contract, Militia Cavalry Saber by Nathan Starr. Nathan Starr was the first U.S. Contract maker for the U.S. Government. They also made muskets. Before the end of the first quarter of the 19th Century, America had established itself as a nation. It had fought in two wars, engaged in treaties, engaged in international business and expanded its territory.

Nathan Starr, Sr., manufactured arms for the fledging United States military was early as 1798 out of his shop in Middleton, Connecticut. His company produced swords until 1837 under various names all in the same New England town.

This particular sword is the pattern 1818 and is in good condition. The grip has been repaired and wrapped with what looks like a fabric or oil cloth. The handguard has been cleaned some as has the blade. The blade is in great shape except for where it looks like someone used a dremel tool to remove rust or something. Most of those marks could be taken out with a little effort. The dremel too cleaning is only around the markings. The markings are mostly clear with one of the r’s in Starr lacking. Other markings include what you can see in the pics. The scabbard is really nice and has been painted black at some point but it wasn’t recently for sure. The rings are present on the scabbard. All in all this is a historic sword and had been in my collection for awhile and when it became available again I purchased it again. Nice old piece! $650.00

TC SHG1 Enfield

New Arrivals 267

This very attractive attic condition example of a Confederate used Pattern 1853 Type III “Enfield” rifle-musket bears the (CROWN) / SH / G1 mark near the tang of the buttplate. This mark is for Sinclair Hamilton Company. The guns that bear the (CROWN) / SH / G# mark are usually found with additional marks. The mark has five variants, with the number after the "G" being a 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5. Sinclair, Hamilton & Company used five "furnishers" for their 2nd Confederate contract for 30,000 P-1853 Enfield rifle muskets. Typically a script cartouche will be found on the flat opposite the lock. All the iron parts are a rusty type patina. The lock is marked 1861 TOWER at the front of the lock with the crown only at the rear. The rear sight is complete as is the ramrod which still has the treaded end intact. The action works and the sling swivels are still present which is plus. The stock is in very good condition overall with the name W WORTON stamped into the bottom which is most likely the stock maker. Double 25's and proof marks are on the barrel at the breech. Also stamped there is R+ ?. The barrel is the original 39 inches long but has been long shot out! No rifling present that I can see. Who knows where this old piece has been ! All in all this is a good example of a complete mocel 1853 Enfield Rifle Musket that saw Confederate Use!! If this old piece could talk!! $2750.00

tc possible cs altered rifle/musket

New Arrivals 266

Here’s an example of making due with what you have! I believe this could be a CS arsenal refurbish using a Type III Springfield Rifle Musket, modifying it to take a LA Co. (London Armory Company) Lock dated 1862, installing a block rear sight and enhancing the front sight with a center blade of tin. Some collectors believe this to possibly be a post war blacksmith or gunsmith alteration but I know that there were thousands of surplus rifles on the secondary market that were being sold for pennies on the dollar so why would someone go to all this trouble? The alteration was beatifully done! This Stock is full length and marked US on the butt plate. The .58 caliber barrel is 40 inches long and has been long shot out but still solid. The eagle on the bolster looks to me to have been obliterated on purpose but I suppose it could just be rusting.. Look at the phot of that part and judge for yourself. There is some markings on the barrel just ahead of the word STEEL that at first I thought was NC but after further magnification and clarification I think it is J.L.C. but I am not sure. There is also the letters PM stamped on the bottom of the barrel under the stock. I took the piece apart as the lock was not working and found the mainspring broken. You can still get them if you want to fix it. The lock is clearly marked LA Co. 1862 with a Crown over VR on the tail of the lock. There is only one barrel band remaining but again you can get these parts if you want to fix it back up. I usually leave them as I find them. I got this from a gentleman who inherited it from his uncle so no story remains. The stock is in generally good condition with the modifications and a crack behind the lock on top that you can see in the pics. There are several dings on this piece so it was obviously used very much. It must have been in a damp corner for many years as the butt plate has quite a bit of corrosion on it but you can still see the US on it. All in all it’s a nice example of rehabbing a weapon for further use. As a side note it appears that the bolster Eagle was purposely obliterated-I can see a Rebel doing that. Remember, the Confederates were taking anything they could get and making things work again to put it back in use. Makes sense to me but you be the judge The only thing I don't like about this unique piece is the V.R under the crown.

Take a look at the pics! For this unique rifle $1250.00

Here we have a Civil War Model 1854 Austrian Lorenz Bayonet in excellent condition! The Lorenz was the third most used long arm on both sides during the American Civil War, and no collection of bayonets from that war is complete without one. The bayonet is complete and full length with its original and fully functional locking ring. This bayonet measures about 22 inches long overall with 18.75 inch quadrangle blade. The bayonet blade is mostly smooth metal throughout with a pleasing, somewhat bright gunmetal gray patina that shows freckles and tiny patches of scattered oxidation and age staining. The socket shows slightly as well as some minor peppering and has a steel gray patina as the blade, with slightly more of the darker patina to the socket. The original Austrian inspection mark, a * is present on the reverse shank of the bayonet, along with some number of which I do not know the meaning. The quadrangle bayonet blade measures nominally 18.75” from the face of the shank to the tip. The socket is 3.21” in length and has a had a little pounding the blade end but not bad. As these Lorenzes are handmade guns the bayonets do not usually interchange without some hand fitting. This is a better than average Model 1854 Austrian Lorenz Bayonet! For this nice old bayonet $275.00

Here we have a wonderfully simple Confederate Cap Pouch! This was part of a collecton of Peace Flasks and other Flasks that recently came in. A dealer from Gettysburg looked at pics of this flask and stated that it was a "Rebel cap box, nice reddish rivet due to copper content" and also "Love the simplistic design on this one". THe box itself is simple with a single belt loop on the back indicative of southern manufacture with a single reddish copper rivit to hold it in place. There is also a single reddish color rivit holding the closing flap on to the flap. Upon examination the finial appears to have been a small wooden finial sandwiched in between two pieces of leather and hand sewn into place. It is broken off which is no surprise since it is so small. The closure flap is not fractured but appears to have been used quite a bit. Take a look at the pics! This is a fantastic little cap box! $1,250.00

New Arrivals 262

This one is a full stock with the unusual 'MULE EAR' hammer on the lock. It's a percussion lock. The rifle is about 49 inches long with a 33 3/8ths inches long barrel with the name W. GARDNER-GENEVA stamped on it. In AMERICAN GUNSMITHS by Sellers there is a H. Gardner of Geneva New York that made a Pill Lock full stock and this is what they call this lock type. I call it Mule Eared like the Civil War Carbines . There was also a G Gardner that made the same kind of rifle with the same kind of lock from Geneva. The lock is marked W. GARDNER PATENT GENEVA so there must have been an entire family of gunmakers there. This barrel is heavy being octagonal with rifling being about 45 to 50 caliber. The ramrod is held in by 3 brass thimbles. The stock is walnut and has a few repairs around the lock and looks like the last 10 inches has been replace but they did a good job and it's definitely period. Hey, someone LOVED this rifle and kept it going! The cresent shaped butt plate is brass and so is the trigger guard. This is a single trigger set up. The lock and hammer is very nice with florals on it. There is a silver escutcheon on the top of the stock behind the barrel and there is a hole in the stock there as well so they may have used a tang sight at some point. There is a crack in the stock in front of the lock that terminates at about 2 inches out. You can see the repairs in the photos. There is a raised relief cheek rest on the reverse stock. This rifle weighs 12 #. It's a beauty even with the repairs! For this one $1,450.00

New Arrivals 261

Here we have a collection of two Civil War firearms and a small powder horn. I purchased these from the family and they came with a letter written in 1971 telling the history of the two pieces. The two pieces came down through the family. The brothers involved are Napoleon Bonapart Peterman, who served in the 8th Ohio Infantry Co, G from June 10th, 1862 to October 3rd, 1862. In September 1862, during the Maryland Campaign, the regiment and the rest of the II Corps hastily marched northward in pursuit of Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. The two armies met near Sharpsburg, Maryland, along the banks of Antietam Creek. Here, the 8th experienced what to date was its hardest fighting of the war. Kimball's brigade repeatedly attacked Alabama troops under D. H. Hill stationed in a sunken road during the Battle of Antietam, taking 50% casualties but eventually pushing through the defensive line at a cost of 162 officers and men killed or wounded. Napoleon may have been wounded in that battle as he mustered out in October 1862 but sometime after that he may have served in Company L, Ohio 1st Heavy Artillery from August 30th, 1863 until July 25th, 1865. He had two brothers Joseph and William that served in the 21st Ohio Infantry we believe. The letter ties them all together at one time but I haven't yet been able to do that and sometimes family history is no accurate. I believe the story takes place in the early part of the War before 1863. The Grandfather talks about Napoleon finding the shotgun in a tree where the Confederate left it. He also talks about a powder horn which we have with the shotgun. The double barrel 12 ga shotgun is in good condition having on the barrel LONDON but having no other markers marks that we can see. This may have been one that came through the blockade. It still works but shows great use. The left hammer has been replaced and it has a more modern screw holding it on. Much engraving on this piece. The rifle is a model 1853 Enfield marked 1862 that, according to the letter, was being used by Napoleon Bonapart Peterman of the 8th Ohio Infantry. This rifle has also seen much use but is still a nice piece! There were markings on the right side of the buttstock but much worn now and I can't make them out. The are no other British proof marks on it except for the lockplate and the barrel. Check out the pics. The letter talks about a 'Mini-ball' being stuck in the stock but that is incorrect. It was a 'small' ball perhaps being a buckshot of the smaller part of the buck n ball loads. The relative told me that there use to be a small ball in there but it has since fallen out. The rifle is still in pretty good condition and looks great with the same attic patina on it that the shotgun has. Although I can see no clear markings on the stock or buttplate that indicates Confederate use it is missing the sling swivels, Confederates like to remove them, but that is not positive proof that it was used by the confederates. The ramrod, however, is engraved with 4 numbers indicitative of Confederate use. It's either a Confederate used rifle that was possibly picked up or the ramrod was missing and the Union Soldier scavaged whatever he could to keep firing. Impossible to know for sure! It's a great grouping of these 3 pieces! Take a look at all the pics as there are plenty! POR

And now on to the double barrel English 12 ga percussion shotgun!

Here we have a whopper! This is a side release "10" gauge Hollis & Sons (England) rabbit eared double barrel shotgun! I. Hollis & Sons was a gunmaker in London from about 1861 – 1915. The piece looks great with ornate locks and matching hammers. The bores are just in fair to good condition in these 30 inch barrels. There is a slight wobble to the lockup but not too bad at all. The wood stocks are in very good condition with only a gutta percha forearm escrutcheon missing that you can see in the pics. It's a good looking shotgun with only a minor ding or two in the barrels. I know of no way to know for sure if it was made before 1898 so it will have to go to a C&R holder or an FFL dealer for transfer. Take a look at the pics!!! $1750.00

This is the Regulation M-1898 Officer's Khaki Field Blouse an trousers as worn by Infantry Officers during the Spanish American War. Made from a khaki cotton, this blouse is unlined and features a three piece body with the distinctive branch of service trim colors on the 1-3/4" standing collar, cuffs and button down shoulder tabs. The two buttons on the shoulder tabs are 'A' Artillery buttons so they must have been replaced as the trim colors on Artillery are red. This is the first pattern as the 2nd pattern did not have the trim colors. This uniform is known as tropical khaki field blouse and breeches. This US Army M1898 Infantry khaki field blouse tunic has 4 pockets, blue shoulder boards , blue collar and blue cuffs. The colors are faded from outside use but the blue is still bright on the inside of the cuffs. This tunic has Eagle / shield buttons with 'I' for infantry in the shield. The backmarks are Pettibone out of Ohio. US Army Officer khaki cotton breeches are in good conditon as well just missing one button off one of the front pockets closing flap. All in all this is a nice uniform and since it's made of cotton neither piece have the moth damage you would expect on a wool uniform. Take a look at the collar brass. The collar brass consists of Crossed Rifles over OK (Oklahoma) and USV for United States Volunteers. The epaulets have the Shield Eagle on them over the 1st Lt. Bar. The First Territorial Volunteer Infantry was organized in July 1898 following a second call for enlistments. Companies were formed in Guthrie, Kingfisher, Chandler, and Stillwater, Oklahoma Territory, and were designated the Oklahoma Battalion, Maj. John F. Stone of Kingfisher, commanding. Company captains included Roy Hoffman of Chandler and Harry C. Barnes, son of Oklahoma Territorial Gov. Cassius M. Barnes, of Guthrie. Indian Territory was represented by a company of recruits raised in Muskogee and placed under the command of Capt. Earl Edmondson. It was later designated Company D, First Battalion.

The Oklahoma companies gathered at Fort Reno, Oklahoma Territory, before traveling to Camp Hamilton, Kentucky, where they joined volunteers from Arizona and New Mexico territories in completing the regiment. Never seeing combat, the regiment remained in service after the war's conclusion in August 1898. Transferred to Camp Churchman near Albany, Georgia, the regiment was discharged in February 1899. It should be noted that during the Spanish-American War residents of both territories also served as U.S. Army regulars and joined volunteer units in other states. This uniform probably exists because this Unit did not see action. You do not see these uniforms often! For this piece BARGAINED PRICED AT $495.00 !!!

Here we have a FEG PPK clone. FÉGARMY Arms Factory (FÉG) of Hungary started producing Walther PP/PPK clones in the late 1940s starting with their Model 48 which differed from the Walther PP only in minor details. By the late 1950s FÉG began making broader changes resulting in the PA-63, which uses the 9×18mm Makarov round. It quickly became standard issue to both Hungarian military and police forces.

The military standard PA-63 version sports a two-tone polished aluminum frame with black slide, grips, trigger and hammer assembly. While unusual for military issue in that a reflective polish was used, it was chosen due to its relative cheapness as well as quicker build time.

After the fall of communism in 1990, the Hungarian army and police units initiated a program to replace the PA-63 with pistols using the NATO-standard 9×19mm Parabellum cartridge, first the imported Jericho 941, followed by the domestically produced P9RC, but the PA-63 is still in service in Hungarian law enforcement. It has been largely phased out in Hungary, but due to the large number produced, they are a popular and affordable surplus firearm since they have begun to be imported to the west. This one came into the country several years ago packed in cosmoline. I have cleaned out 99% of the cosmoline but the safety is still a bit still. The firearm functions as it should and it looks pretty good, not perfect, but good. The bore is really nice! The grips are in good condition with no chips or cracks. This is a nice piece! Check out the pics!!! $275.00

Here we have an early Flintlock reproduction single shot pistol that has some age to it. The rifled .45 caliber octagonal 12 inch barrel has been nicely browned with a blade front sight and a standard dovetailed rear sight.

The frizzen operates as it should and the hammer flint sparks when fired. The brass hardware is ornate and has a pretty mellow patina to it. The wood stock is in excellent condition with nice color exhibiting no breaks or cracks. The entire piece is about 17 1/2 inches long not counting the ramrod sticking out. The ramrod is 12 1/2 inches long while the bore itsel is 11 1/2 inches deep. The bore is clear with no load within. Flintlock pistols whether original or reproduction are quite popular with collectors and shooters alike. This one is styled like the Kentucky Frontiersman type pistol. No makers markings are visible. This one is It's a beautiful pistol! Take a look at the pics!! $295.00

Late 1800's to early 1900's unmarked German Drilling! This 3 barrel longarm is in pretty good shape for it's age. The two shotgun barrels are 16 gauge while the rifle barrel is a little more mysterious. The diameter is the same as a .44 mag but the cartridge that fits in it is 2 3/4inches long. The shotgun barrels are fair to good while the rifle barrel, while being somewhat dark, is heavily rifled! The 27 1/4 inch barrels have much plum brown patina on them and a few minor shallow dents from use. All of the metal parts of this drilling show good age and use. The actions seem to work ok in the back action locks. The metal parts have engraving on them. The wood stocks have seen much use and the toe on the buttstock has been replaced as you can see in the pics. Any notable defects in the stocks are reflected in the pics. All in all this is a beautiful drilling and much less than one in better shape. The front sling is missing and the rear sight is missing part of it but other than that I believe this piece to be complete! The piece has a horn buttplate and a horn scalloped plate on the bottom of the pistol grip. Take a look at the pics!!! $1500.00

DH 142-A

Sold!!!

Here we have a near perfect mint in the original box Mossberg 142-A .22 Rifle!!! Following World War II, a slightly updated 100-series of Mossberg .22 rifles was introduced. Among them was the 142A, a bolt-action design that fed from a seven-shot detachable box magazine. To appeal to the recently returned G.I., Mossberg advertised the rifles as “army-type carbines … inspired by the famous U.S. Army M1 Carbine.” The rifle featured sights that mimicked the M1, with a receiver-mounted rear aperture and a front post with two protective ears as this one has. Also like the M1 carbine, the rifles had sling swivels mounted on the left side of their walnut stock and came from the factory equipped with military-type web slings. The original sling is still on this one. A unique feature of the 142 was a molded synthetic (early models used wood and this one is wood) fore-end that would fold down to form a vertical hand grip or an informal monopod for prone shooting. Also this one has the "T" handle and later ones have a knob handle. This particular rifle is in near 100% condition and looks as though it may have never been used! It's that nice! It's probably this nice because it was stored in the original box with paperwork. The original box is not in the best of shape so it took the brunt of being moved every time the owner moved or things were disrupted. Take a look at the pics. The price originally was $23.95!!! This rifle was delivered to Gulling Auto Electric Company in Indianapolis! In those days any business could sell guns. No transfers then! You definitely will NOT find a better condtioned Mossberg 142-A .22 rifle than this one! $ :

Here we have a Finland M91-30 rifle. Capturing large numbers of newer Mosin-Nagant M91/30 rifles, Finland began a rebuilding program for the worst of their new supply. Tikkakoski produced new barrels and the front sights were usually improved. Some models were refitted with heavier forestocks while retaining the Soviet rear, some received all new stocks. These both will display the Finnish two-piece stock splicing. I don't know if this stock has been replaced or not but it does have dings here and there but no cracks or breaks that I see. The metal finish is quite nice and the markings are mostly clear. The date 1941 is on the receiver under the Tikkakoshi stamp and the serial number. The actions works very well and the rifle is complete with the sling and socket bayonet which fits very nicely. The cleaning rod is also present. The bore has deep rifling but is kind of rough and dark. The barrel is about 31.6 inches long. Nice and complete! $650.00

Here we have a Stunning Grouping here of Weapons, Image, & Historic Archives of Lt. Col. John S. Griffith, Commanding the 6th Texas Cavalry and later the Entire Texas Brigade Commander before becoming the Texas Distric Brigadier General by Order of the Texas Governor! Lt. Col Griffith lead the famous raid into Holly Springs, Mississippi capturing Millions of Dollars of Grant's Main Supply base and personally Capturing Mrs. U.S. Grant himself! We also have many copies of historical Archive Information accompaning this most historic collection! Information on the Colonel came from the National National Archives and civilwardata.com and as a bonus we have included a copy of Brandon Beck's Book Holly Springs which talks about the Colonel in there. Col. Griffith was first enlisted as Captain of the 6th Texas Cavalry in 1861 at age 31 but quickly promoted to Lt. Col. and Commander of the 6th Texas Cavalry on September 13, 1861 by election. He would later be promoted to Commander of the Texas Brigade itself for a short period of time towards the end of 1862, but would become so severly ill by February 1863 that he spent several months in a CS Hospital in Jackson, MS, suffering from "disease of the liver and bowels: as he would write and his physician would call it as being "sorely afficted with Bronchial irritation of the upper lobes of his lungs and dysentery". He would tender his "unconditional resignation" on April 29th, 1863, which was accepted, and he would return to Texas. The Governor of Texas, a friend of Griffith, would actually later promote him to Brig. Gen'l over a District in Texas, although his health really kept him confined in his roll. We have included with the pics different photos of muster rolls, letters, medical affidavits as to his health condition that let him to resign and go back to Texas, Southern Telegraph message, pay vouchers, unit equipment requisition forms etc. The purchaser will also get copies of the regimental history etc. Colonel Griffith is credited for leading the charge into Holly Springs for the most famous raid capturing at the supply depot millions of dollars of Grant's main army stores were captured or destroyed! Colonel Griffith also captured Grant's Wife at Holly Springs who was there visiting her husband! Rumor is that she was there to keep him sober! Lt. Colonel Griffith ordered him men to now bother the women of the north including General Grant's wife and that "not a hem to be touched" even though the ladies treated the Confederates rather cooly. When Mrs. Grant asked if the Confederates were now waging war agaoinst women, he kindly but curtly replied "No ma'am, we leave that to our enemies!"

As you can see with his surviving rig and image, he has a very nice pre-war Model 1851 Officers Eagle sword belt rig that has original and extremely rate solid cast Texas "STAR" sword leather strap hanger studs that are believed to have been made by T. Miller, as they look identical to his stippled background Tesas "Star" button he would made for soldier's and officer's use. These buttons are ultra rare and only a handful have been excavated in the Virginia and in the Trans-Mississippi Theater. The belt is 100% intact and solid, as is his Gaylord marked holster. The small thin finial closure tab did require some backing repair to allow it to close properly which was professionally restored from behind so you can't see it. His side arm is that of a prewar early war Whitney Navy revolver with all matching early serial numbers and is undamaged , complete, and fully functional with the exception of one replace screw that you can see in the pics. The Colonel's sword is a classic Dragoon officer's saber with polished bone grip, some fancy blade etching and his name and rank hand carved into the soft brass. It' reads "Lt. Col. John S. Griffith". This sword has a solid blade with brass scabbard and shows no damage or repairs. His 1/9th plate ambrotype image shows a full waist up shot of him in his officer's frock coat with the buttons being gold gilted by the photographer and there are 2 stars on his color to indicate his rank but they are hard to make out as they have been gold guilded as well indicating the rank at Lt. Colonel. Behind the image on the back of the full case iw written in what looks like pencil is his name and "Affectionaly Yours" above his signature. If you compare that signature with the ones written on the documents it's most definitely his! This ambro went to either his wife or someone he was close to. Ambro's are one of a kind photographs!

Lt. Col. Griffith fought bravely in the bloody 2 day battle of Corinth, nearly destroying Rosecran's Army, and followed soon after by the massively successful raid and capture of Grant's supply base in Holly Springs. Due to that successful raid Grant had to withdraw and cease all offensive operations against Pemberton's Department in Mississippi as Grant was being ordered to take Vicksburg and Jackson. Below is his info from civilwardata.com

Below here is the history of the 6th Texas Cavalry

The 6th Texas Cavalry Regiment was a unit of mounted volunteers that fought in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War. The regiment fought at Chustenahlah in 1861. The following year the unit fought at Pea Ridge, First Corinth, Second Corinth, Hatchie's Bridge, and Holly Springs. The 6th Texas Cavalry participated in the fighting at Thompson's Station in 1863, the Atlanta campaign, and the Franklin–Nashville Campaign in 1864. The regiment formally surrendered to Union forces in May 1865 and its remaining soldiers were paroled.

The 6th Texas Cavalry mustered into the Confederate Army at Camp Bartow near Dallas on 6 September 1861. The regiment counted 1,150 officers and men formed into 10 companies. The soldiers enlisted for one year, but the Confederate Conscription Act of 1862 extended this term of service. The field officers were Colonel Barton Warren Stone, Jr., Lieutenant Colonel John Summerfield Griffith, and Major Lawrence Sullivan "Sul" Ross. The companies were organized as follows. In November 1861, the Ladies' Aid Society of Lancaster, Texas provided $1,676.50 worth of clothing, footwear, and blankets for soldiers of the regiment.

This grouping was purchased by my consignor many years ago from a well known Southern Dealer and comes along with his Notarized Statement as to the authenticity of these items. This grouping was acquired by an attorney from the family in the 1950's.

Fun research project! For this fine grouping WAS $7,250.00 NOW $6000.00 !!! FOR THIS FINE GROUPING!!!

Jmf Nashville Plow Works sword

New Arrivals 239

Here we have a very nice original Nashville Plow Works Sword. The history accompaning this piece came from the family. As it is we cannot 100% guarantee the history but we do guarantee the sword to be original.

George Wasington Hunter was born July 24, 1838 to Sherd (Sherrod) and Littie, or perhaps Lottie, Hunter in Sumner County, Tennessee which is n/e of Nashville, TN. He was one of 7 children being the oldest. George's father was a farmer and Sherd followed in his father's footsteps. After the War between the States broke out George joined the 30th Regiment Tennessee Infantry having enlisted on 10/1/1861 as a Private in Company E of the 30th Tennessee Infantry. The 30th Infantry Regiment completed its organization at Red Springs, Macon County, Tennessee, in October, 1861. Men of this unit were recruited in Sumner, Robertson, Smith, and Macon counties. Serving in the Western Department, it was captured in the fight at Fort Donelson in February, 1862 however George eluded capture as he was not there having been relieved of duty and sent to Clarksville due to being sick. George had rejoined his regiment when he was captured on May 12, 1863 at Raymond, Mississippi. The Battle of Raymond was fought on May 12, 1863, near Raymond, Mississippi, during the Vicksburg campaign of the American Civil War.

Initial Union attempts to capture the strategically important Mississippi River city of Vicksburg failed so the battle at Raymond was instrumental in setting up the Union Victory at Vicksburg in July, 1863. After George was captured he was sent to Camp Morton in Indianapolis, Indiana where he endured the remainder of the Civil War only being released after taking the Oath of Allegiance on May 12, 1865 having spent two full grueling years in prison that left his body ravaged with illness. George and another friend from Prison who was also a soldier from Tennessee decided not to wait on any transportation back home to Sumner County, Tennessee so they started walking which was about 272 miles as the crow flies. Family history says that they did not have any shoes and darn near starved making their perilous journey back home. Family history also states that George may have picked up a Nashville Plow Works Sword on his way along the road and kept it for protection and a souvenir of the terrible fighting. George married and remained in Tennessee for a time before moving to Arkansas which is where his wife was from. His wife was Nancy L. Roark and from that union they had two children, a daughter and a son named John William Hunter. George had a terrible lifelong disability of inguinal hernia with much pain and eventually moved back to Tennessee in July of 1903. His wife owned 134 acres of farmland but due to his medical condition could not work it so he became a merchant. His wife earned a living working in a Cotton Mill. George died on December 18, 1922 in Sumner County, Tennessee where he was born and is buried there in Old Brush Cemetary. The Nashville Plow Works Sword was kept in the family until purchased by a good friend in 1994. The sword had gone down through the family and sons to a great Grandson in Kirkin, Indiana. This old gentleman's son, George Washington Hunter's Great Great Grandson lived in Sylvania, Ohio and provided us with copies of the Tennessee Soldier's Application for Pension as well as death certificate and Confederate muster rolls and Camp Morton Muster Rolls which will be passed on to the purchaser.

The Nashville Plow Works Cavalry Sabre is in excellent condition for it's age. Prior to the Civil War Sharp & Hamilton, who also manfactured swords under their name during the war, operated a farming implement company under the trade name of Nashville Plow Works. With the war quickly approaching, the owners converted their establishment into an armory. The Nashville Plow Works continued operations from 1861 until April 1, 1862, when the city was taken by Federal troops making these swords highly prized by collectors. The brass guard has a wonderful dark patina and most of the original leather is on the grip albeit the finish is flaking. All of the original fine twisted brass wire is present as well. The casting is the stimpled type with NASHVILLE PLOW WORKS showing some imprefections as well as the CSA on the bottom. The unstopped fullered blade is nearly 34 inches long with an overall length of the sword of 39 1/2 inches. The scabbard is iron with brass mounts and is top brazed. One attachment ring has been replaced and an old chain, looks like a watch chain, was placed between the two rings to hang on the wall. The scabbard has been painted gold at one time but now nearly worn off so perhaps this sword was loaned to a GAR hall at at some point in it's life it may have been loaned to a GAR post but we cannot guarantee that. There are no markings on this sword that would not have been on it when manufactured. Even though Pvt. George Washington Hunter was not issued this fine old Cavalry Sword it's quite apparent that it was cherished by the family. As with all items with a family history we cannot guarantee the story. Take a look at this fine old sword. It's quite a piece!!! $17,500.00

The holster is marked BOYT -41- (1941) and is mostly flexible and in good condition with no cracking/crazing, rips or tears. The holster is a little hard at the barrel tip end and a 1911 doesn't quite slide all the way in but with a little oil it probably would. The web belt is adjusted for a small waist as were most boys who went off to war in 1941! The belt is in good condition! This outfit would make a great display item! Check out the pics! $145.00

Jmf Mossberg Brownie

SOLD!!!

Here we have a Mossberg Brownie 4 barrel .22 pistol with rotating firing pin! The Mossberg Brownie is a four shot, .22 Long Rifle pistol, similar to a derringer or pepperbox, produced by O.F. Mossberg & Sons from 1920 to 1932. The Brownie is based on an earlier pistol patented and licensed to the Shattuck Company by Oscar Mossberg. The pistol has a double-action trigger and a rotating firing pin. Each pull of the trigger cocks and releases the hammer as well as rotating the firing pin to fire each chamber in succession. A top-mounted latch released the barrel assembly to open forward. This pistol shows use and loss of original finish but it is complete, in good condition and functions as it should. The original slab walnut grips are still present as well. The markings are a little worn from use but still visible and still deep in most cases. Serial number is 27259 but I cannot find the exact year it was made. The Barrels length are 2.5 inches and it handles the .22LR and .22Short. It is a double action pistol, being striker fired with iron sights. There is some original blue left but mostly lacking turning into a brown patina. Originally there was a little ejector stick that was issued with these pistols to eject the spent shells but they are always missing as this one is as well. It was a separate piece and was almost always lost. Take a look at the pics! $

It have a very nice dark patina and the iron rowell is still present and in good shape. The spur is bent a little leading us to believe that it was ripped off for some reason. We believe that this single spur is also a veteran bringback but alas, again no history accompanies it. I am sure there is a story here but lost in time. The only markings on this spur is what looks like a '10' being stamped on one of the limbs where the leather strap goes through it. Still a nice old piece and looks good in a collection! $65.00

The Model 929 Sidekick was available with a 2˝-, 4-, or 6-inch barrel originally. The short-barreled gun came with round butt and plastic grips, while the latter pair had full-sized grips and adjustable rear sights. The 929 was produced from machined steel, and the 2˝-inch gun weighed a hefty 23.5 ounces. This is the MODEL 929 SIDE KICK SECOND MODEL (TRANSFER BAR IGNITION) and was made from 1974-1986. The serial number starts with the letters AT which I believe to be 1979. A good friend of mine is a machinist who did this for fun. The barrel was taken from the center part of the H&R Plainsman barrel. See how tight it is pinned to the receiver and how the barrel is crown on the end. This gentleman is retired now and does all kinds of things that are so cool! He even makes custom car seats for handicapped kids and special seats for them to use at the Dentist's office! He is a true craftsman! The firearm is in very good condition with just a little age spotting on the receiver and cylinder but absolutely no active rust or pitting.

New Arrivals 230

Here is, what we believe to be, a one off - one of a kind Winchester Model 1885 Low-Wall Musket/Rifle! I do not know who did this or for what reason but here it is! The serial number dates it to 1905 but I do not know when the conversion was done. It uses an extended straight pull slide bolt that only has a long firing pin in it and the extractor. The rifle otherwise is used just as the original Low-Wall rifle was used. The buttstock has been altered to have the cheek rest raised to weld the face into it. The fore stock is full length and terminates into a hand case pewter nose cap. Under the stock is the cleaning rod for the .22 inch very nice bore. The front sight is a hooded sight that takes different targeting inserts which are lacking. The rear sight is a crudely cut "V" sight which is strangly offset. There is provisions for a tang sight which was on this gun at one time but now lacking. The action works correctly however I have not fired it as of this listing. The mottled brown patina is the same on the receiver as well as the barrel indicating that this conversion was done quite some time ago. Here is your chance to own a Winchester that no one else has a copy of! Check out the pics! $1500.00

Jmf Winchester 24

SOLD!!!

Here we have a pretty nice old Winchester Model 24 double barrel 12 ga hammerless shotgun with 30 inch barrels. The Winchester Model 24 side-by-side shotgun went into production in 1939 and stayed in the line until 1958. The Model 24 was intended to compete with the likes of the Stevens 311 and Savage/Fox Model B as an affordable, utility side-by-side. It was reasonably successful in the market place and a total of over 116,200 were manufactured and since this one is serial number 108802 it was near the end of manufacture probably being 1857.

The Model 24 is a true hammerless gun, as opposed to having concealed hammers like most double guns, since it is striker fired. It was produced only as a field grade gun with blued receiver and barrels, wide 7/16" raised solid rib, uncheckered black walnut stock with lacquer finish, semi-pistol grip (a straight hand stock could be ordered), double triggers, and spring powered extractors that elevated the shells when the gun was opened. Available gauges were 12, 16, and 20, with 12 gauge being the most common. The tubes are really nice and shiny down the entire length. This particular firearm as previously mentioned is a 12 gauge firearm with 30 inch barrels choked mod/full. The Model 24 is about as wide through the breech and receiver as a side-by-side gun can be.

This shotgun has been used and there is a small amount of finish lacking on the receiver on each side. The walnut wood stocks are generally in very good condition with a ding here and there from use but I see no cracks and there are no breaks. The action works very well. The original butt plate is present and in good condition as well. All the markings are nice and clear. Quite collectible! C&R eligible! $

Jmf L.C.Smith

New Arrivals 228

The L.C. Smith Hammer guns “Made by L C Smith, Fulton, NY” were produced from 1884 to 1887 when the company was bought by Hunter Brothers. The Hunter Brothers guns were stamped “L.C. Smith” on the lockplates, while the barrels were marked, “HUNTER ARMS CO.–MAKERS–FULTON, N.Y.” like this one is marked. Hunter Arms Company completed their Fulton, N.Y. factory in 1892 to manufacture these fine shotguns. In 1950 the factory was closed after changing hands a few times.

This shotgun is in very good condition with the usual dings from use. The stock is a French walnut. The 32” Damascus barrels have a fair to good pattern and fair to good bores. The action works just fine on this piece. The stocks are checkered and show considerable use with dings and the like but no cracks or breaks that I can see. The composite buttplate is present and in good condition. I believe that the lower barrel rib has had some repair as it looks a little rough but solid as a rock. Both hammers match as they should. The metal pieces have a kind of mottled brown patina to them. This piece would look great over the fireplace with an empty box of old shells for display and perhaps a duck decoy! Take a look at the pics! This is a classic! Curio and relic. This shotgun may be an antique but I have not been able to proof it. A nice old hammer gun for your collection. $2395.00

Jmf Parker shotgun

New Arrivals 227

Here we have an antique Parker double barrel 12 ga shotgun! According to Wikipedia Parker Bros (also known at various times as Parker Brothers Manufacturing Company, Parker Brothers Guns, and Parker Bros. Shotguns) was an American firearms firm, mostly producing shotguns from 1867 to 1942. During these years, approximately 242,000 guns were produced in various grades, and are widely considered the finest and most collectible American shotgun. For the first 20+ years of production, Parker Bros. used an exposed hammer design, but by 1888 the first hammerless guns were offered for sale. Parker Bros. was launched in Meriden, Connecticut, as Parker Snow Co. by Charles Parker, whose mission was to produce rifles for the United States Army during the Civil War. The company was among several entrepreneurial initiatives by Charles Parker, founder of the Charles Parker Company.

Over the years, Parker shotguns were exhibited in several national and international expositions including the Centennial International Exhibition, Philadelphia in 1876; the Melbourne International Exhibition, Australia in 1880-81; the World’s Columbian Exposition, Chicago in 1893; and the Sportsmen’s Exposition, New York in 1895, 1896, and 1897.

This particular shotgun is the side lever type with the exposed hammers reminisent of the early days. The wood is a nice walnut with checked wrist and forearm which shows use in the forms of dings but no cracks or breaks that I can see. The locks are engraved as is the trigger guard. The locks are simply marked "PARKER" on each side. The top rib on the 29 1/2 inch long barrels is marked "LAMINATED STEEL DAMASCUS". The bores are borderline fair. The hammers are a perfect match and work great. The metal parts including the barrel are a very pleasing dark brown patina. The Parker company was acquired by Remington Arms in 1934, and phased out of business by 1942.

This piece would look great over the fireplace with an empty box of old shells for display and perhaps a duck decoy! Take a look at the pics! This is a classic! Antique! A nice old hammer gun for your collection. $2950.00

JMF German Drilling

New Arrivals 226

Here we have a most wonderful 3 barrel German Drilling! Two of the barrels are 16 ga while the rifle barrel is 9.3 X 72r or 9.3 x 720 as both cartridges are within the ammo container located in the buttstock. The barrels are 27 inches long and all 3 bores are excellent! This gun has the back action locks and they work perfectly. The locks and may of the metal pieces are ornately engraved. The checkered walnut pistol grip stock has a fine cheek piece on the inside making this a firearm for a right handed shooter. The ornate buttplate has some damage at the top but still nice. Missing the front sling swivel but the base is still there. The rear sight is a flip down sight. I can see no makers name on this piece so just classified as a German Drilling according to the markings on the inside of the firearm. This piece is marked with a Crown over N, German Nitro proof (nitro is smokeless powder, instead of black), 1912 - 1939 so it is a curio and relic piece. It's a beautiful firearm! For this beautiful firearm $2295.00

Jmf

New Arrivals 225

Here we have what we think is a Bunside Carbine 3rd model in .54 caliber according to research. The Burnside Carbine, created by Ambrose Burnside who later became Major General for the Union, had six models that were created before or during the Civil War. The First Model and the following transitional type were not used in the Civil War, but the other four models were used, in particular the Fifth Model. The Burnside gained a good reputation on the battlefield, and the company received many orders for them during the Civil War.1 One of the first orders came from the Rhode Island's Adjunct General T. J. Stead, who contracted for 7,500 Burnside carbines around July of 1861. Union soldiers were armed with 55,567 Burnsides throughout the Civil War. This one is serial numbered 19385 and has attributes of both the 3rd and 4th model. The barrel is simply marked CAST STEEL 1862 (date week) while the front of the breech is marked BURNSIDE'S PATENT/MARCH 25TH, 1856 (date somewhat weak) s/n 19385. The lockplate is marked BURNSIDE RIFLE CO/PROVIDENCE R.I. The hinge pin has the ear broken off of it but still functions just fine. The action works well and the rifling down the 20 inch barrel is mostly shiney with deep lands and grooved and some spotty rusting. The wood stocks have seen lots of use but they should have if they were in combat. This old girl came out of Indiana and several Indiana Cavalry units used Burnside Carbines. Check out the pics! For this old Warhorse!!!

$1450.00

Also, We have one original .54 caliber Burnside cartridge for sale. Factory original brass cased cartridge for the .54 carbine as manufactured by Bristol Firearms Company and Burnside Rifle Company (owned by Union General Ambrose Burnside). Fits all Models, 1st through 5th. This is a unique cartridge, only fitting the Burnside Carbine and it still needed a percussion cap to ignite the cartridge. Now 1 cartridge cost more than an entire carbine cost in 1861!! Great display with the original Burnside carbine! $65.00 If you purchase the carbine I'll throw in the cartridge for free.

Marlin 98

New Arrivals 222

Here we have a real nice vintage Marlin 98 .22 caliber semi auto rifle with original scope and beautiful stock with no cracks or breaks that I can see. Made for only 3 years between 1957 and 1959, the Marlin Model 98 is scarcely seen today in any condition. The Marlin Model 98 is a self-loading rimfire rifle that is fed from a tube magazine located in the buttstock of the gun. The Model 98 features a recoil-operated action, a grooved receiver for optics, a 22" inch barrel with front iron sight, and an American Walnut pistol grip stock. It is an all-original rifle in superb condition, and has had the normal barrel-mounted blade rear sight removed to accomodate the scope. There is a factory installed blank installed in the dovetail where the rear sight would have been. The scope is a vintage J.C.Higgins 4X scope with very nice optics. The factory blue finish is in excellent condition, rating 98% in my opinion. The bore is perfect in this rifle, bright and clean with nice sharp "Micro-Groove" rifling. As you can see from the pictures, this Marlin has an exceptional factory stock on it with lots of beautiful figure and contrasting grain showing. The stock is free from any cracks, chips, repairs, or wear, just a minor ding here and there. All of the stock hardware is in excellent condition as well. The action is in 100% perfect working order, and the bolt closeing into the battery forceably. We have no doubt that this rifle would function just as well today as it did when it left the factory! Also comes with a sling. The rifle is not perfect by any means but it's an outstanding example! If you have been looking for an interesting new Marlin .22 rifle for your collection this Marlin Model 98 .22 rifle would be very hard to beat! Qualifies for Curio and Relic. $375.00

The SIG Sauer P238 is a compact .380 ACP caliber, single-action pistol announced by SIG Sauer at the 2009 SHOT Show. It is modelled after the M1911, similar to the Colt Mustang. Grip panels are textured making this an all-metal frame firearm in competition with plastic-framed pistols in the same class as the Ruger LCP and the Kel-Tec P-3AT. The P238 has an aluminium frame and a stainless steel slide. When introduced in 2009, the P238 was available in a matte black finish and a two-tone finish with a matte silver colored slide and black frame as this one is.

Pill roller

New Arrivals 220

Offered is a nice example of a 19th Century Pharmacy "tool of the trade" known as a pill machine but often referred to as a pill roller. Pill machines were designed to enhance the productivity of the early pharmacist, and this design was, indeed, popular for many, many years. This pill machine is designed with 24 tubes for medicine-making. The condition is very good, having a nice patina showing its age and use. It is constructed of walnut and embellished with brass edge guards as well as brass grooved molds. The paddle is in as good a shape as the base. The base measures approximately 12 1/2" L x nearly 8" W x 1 3/4" H at the foot end otherwise it measures 1 inch thick. I have seen a pill roller just like this one several times on Gunsmoke where Doc Adams was producing pills! An apothecary classic, ready for your collection! $150.00

A Mortar and pestle is a set of two simple tools used from the Stone Age to the present day to prepare ingredients or substances by crushing and grinding them into a fine paste or powder in the kitchen, laboratory, and pharmacy. The mortar is characteristically a bowl, typically made of hard wood, metal, ceramic, or hard stone such as granite. The pestle is a blunt, club-shaped object. The substance to be ground, which may be wet or dry, is placed in the mortar where the pestle is pounded, pressed, and rotated into the substance until the desired texture is achieved. Native Americans used mortars and pestles to grind grain for cooking. $30 each for the larger ones, $20 for the glass one and $10 for the one marked Acid Proof.

TC invalid feeders

New Arrivals 218

Here we have 3 of these porcelin invalid feeders. These fine porcelain feeders are all in good condition. They were filled with soup or broth and then could be feed to a person laying down. This would allow to feed a wounded , sick person with out them having to lean up or get up and without spill food over the patient. These were also used to feed young children, infants and elderly folks. These have been seen with military stamping and Red Cross markings on them. Great for a medical display or even a early military / medical display. Invalid feeders were used from the 17th century until the 1930s to feed both invalids and infants when they were unable to feed themselves. A mixture called pap was made using bread, honey, and milk and used to feed the sick. Feeders such as these were also used to administer liquid medicines. The smaller feeders are about 6 inches long and 2 1/4 inches across while the larger one is 4 inches across not counting the handle and 5 2/4 inches long including the spout. $30 each for the smaller ones and $45.00 for the larger one.

TC pain

New Arrivals 216

Here is what we call a "pain" bullet. I suppose bullets could be used to bite down on when there was no anesthetic but it's not likely. The myth about “biting the bullet” may have come from the fact that only a low dose of anesthetic was used during the Civil War, just enough to make the patient insensitive to pain. Surgeons worked quickly and could complete a major operation in a matter of minutes. Many men moaned and moved about due to the agitating effects of a light dose of anesthetic and some had to be held down by assistants, but they were unconscious and could not feel pain. Outside observers may have assumed that the men were being operated upon with no anesthetic, not understanding that the groans and thrashing movements were caused by the chloroform or ether. Never the less we have a bullet here that looks to have been chewed on. Many were chewed on by animals but this has spots that definitely look like a molar chomped down on it. You decide for yourself. Comes in a glass medical vial with screw on lid. $35.00

As previously mentioned some are marked Charriere but other names on these instruments are Tiemann, J & S over a crown, Llitir Inwien, Maw London, Leur, F.Hajek and some are unmarked.

Jmf WW1 helmets

New Arrivals 196

Here we have 2 WW1 German Model 1916/1918 helmets. The Stahlhelm was introduced into regular service during the Verdun campaign in early 1916.

The M1916 design had side-mounted horn-like ventilator lugs that were intended to be support for an additional steel brow plate or Stirnpanzer, which only ever saw limited use by snipers and trench raiding parties, as it was too heavy for general use.

The one on the right has no liner while the one on the left has the reissued WW2 liner. The one without the liner has writting on the inside of the shell but I cannot make it out. I have seen no other markings on it. The shell is in very good condition with no dents but the original paint does have scratching on it and some paint loss. It still looks very good. For this one $250.00

The reissued shell has a little better original paint and the markings "SL 66" stamped on the inside of the rim and I believe that is a reference to the size. For this reissued helmet $499.00. Take a look at the pics!!

Here we have a piece of Nazi War Memorbillia brought back to the states by a member of the Armed Services during WW2. This is a WW2 German triangular banner with the Swastika in the center. The swastika is seen on both sides. This piece measures 63 inches long with the swastika in white circle measuring 6 3/4 inches across. The best thing about this piece is the many, many signatures written on it! This piece was captured by Co. L 110th Infantry 1st Platoon!

Inducted into federal service 17 February 1941 at Washington. Based in Pembrokeshire, Wales from October 1943 to April 1944, preparing for D-Day; a memorial to those lost in the liberation of Europe was unveiled in 2019. Inactivated 25 October 1945 at Camp Shelby, Mississippi.

The 110th Infantry Regiment, 28th Infantry Division, on 16 December 1944, held the center sector of the defensive zone of the division and VIII Corps in the Ardennes. Here it lay astride the main attack axis of the German LXVII Panzer Corps of the Fifth Panzer Army headed to Bastogne, Belgium, and points west. Vastly outnumbered and outgunned by the attacking German force, the 110th Infantry put up one of the classic defensive stands in American military history. By sacrificing themselves, the officers and men of the 110th Infantry bought the precious time needed for the 101st Airborne Division to be trucked into the vital crossroads town of Bastogne and consolidate its defenses with elements of the 9th and 10th Armored Divisions and miscellaneous remnants of the 28th Infantry Division and VIII Corps. The story of Bastogne is well-known, but it was only possible with the sacrifice of those American soldiers to the east.

After the war and before its release from Federal service, the110th Infantry Regiment compiled its wartime history that is now located in box8596, World War II unit records, Record Group 407, Records of the U.S. Army Adjutant General, in the National Archives and Records Administration, Archives II, in College Park, Maryland. In this history, the members of the 110th Infantry recorded their history and listed their casualties, by name and campaign. Their history was broken up into the main campaigns in which the 110th Infantry participated. Two of the sections are reproduced here:

A few of the men that signed from the 110th Infantry are on this pennant and I believe them to be Charles Motts, Thompson Fittan, Richard Romanic, and possible many more. Some of the states represented is North Carolina, Indiana, New York, Iowa, Tennessee, and more! You could research each name for a long time! The pennant is signed on one side only and it's in the condition as one that was carried for awhile. This is History Folks! $

Jmf 1905 Win

New Arrivals 191

Here we have a pretty nice used VINTAGE! Winchester Mod. 1905 semi auto rifle in .35 Caliber! The Winchester Model 1905 (also known as the Model 05), is a blowback-operated, semi-automatic rifle produced by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company beginning in 1905 and discontinued in 1920. This rifle loads cartridges from a 5 or 10-round capacity, detachable box magazine located immediately forward of the trigger guard. Winchester offered factory chamberings in .32SL and .35 Winchester Self-Loading (.35 WSL). Notably, a Model 1905 in .35 WSL was used by Harry Payne Whitney on an arctic expedition. The rifle proved reliable in extreme low-temperatures, but was insufficiently powerful for taking large game such as musk ox but very useful none the less. The basic design for the Winchester Model 1905 is covered by U.S. Patent 681,481 issued August 27, 1901 and assigned to Winchester by Thomas Crossley Johnson, a key firearms designer for Winchester. This patent was initially used to protect the design of the rimfire Winchester Model 1903, but came to be applied toward the centerfire Winchester Self Loading rifle series, which includes the Model 1905, Model 1907 and Model 1910. I believe this rifle to have the 5 round .35 caliber magazine. The action works great and the bore is nice in the 22 inch barrel. The color is nice for a rifle this old. The serial number is 8400 which shows that this rifle was made in 1905. This old Winchester was well used but loved and taken care of. There are no breaks or cracks in the stock that I can see but there is a ding here and there. The Winchester composite buttplate shows lots of wear. Take a look at the pics. This is a beautiful rifle and just reeks with character!!! $950.00

Jmf stevens 240

Sold!!!

Here we have a pretty nice Stevens Model 240 with over/under .410 barrels and rare tenite stock! The Model No. 240 was not as useful nor as popular as the combination gun and was discontinued in 1941 at the beginning of World War Two. They are rarely seen today so here is your chance to own something that no one else has! The butt stock was attached with a through bolt and the forend was a "snap-on" design attached by a spring clip. Many early guns had tennite stocks and forends. Tennite was an early plastic which had many structural uses and was used on a number of gun designs. However, it was not popular for assorted reasons, among them, traditionalists wanted wood, but, in addition, it also did not hold up as well as wood and broken stocks are common. One of my references says the first Stevens guns had wooden stocks before Tennite was introduced, and this may be so as the wooden stock seems much more common than the plastic one. This particular shotgun is in good condition with no cracks or breaks to the tennite but does have some surface scratches here and there. The 26 inch over/under .410 barrels are in excellent condition being very shiny down the bore and with good color/bluing to the exterior. The case hardening is quite evident on both sides of the receiver and it looks great! The little side by side hammers are offset as they are supposed to be and the action works as it should. This is quite a collectible piece and you may never find another and maybe not in this nice condition! For this piece $850.00 Check out the pics!

Here we have a Colt Third Model Thuer Derringer, also known as the New Model Derringer, made circa 1875-1912. This pistols is chambered for the .41 rimfire. A Colt employee, F. Alexander Thuer, patented a Derringer that had a barrel that pivoted to the right on a vertical axis for loading and unloading. Instead of using a manually operated latch to open, his used a very positive, spring-loaded catch and detent that did not require anything but a firm twist of the barrel. This spring-loaded catch also acted as an automatic ejector, was very handy for a single shot self-defense pistol. These were sold alongside the other two models as the Third Model Deringer, but are now known to many as the Thuer Model. The Thuer was far and away the most successful of the three single shot models that Colt manufactured. These were very refined, very handy conceal and carry pieces all the way through 1912, when semi-automatic firearms took the lion’s share of the market.

The top of the barrel is marked “-COLT-”. The left side of the frame is marked “41 CAL”. This one features a brass frame that came nickel plated.

The overall condition is very good. The nickel finish is 60% +. The markings are legible. The grips are in great condition. The bore is mostly clean with good, but not deep , rifling. The action is excellent. The color on the barrle hammer, trigger and bottom screw are real nice. Here is a great little Colt for your collection!

Here we have an antique Bacon Arms Company Pepperbox Revolver, made circa 1870 in Norwich, Connecticut. Only 1,000 are estimated to have been made, making this a very rare specimen. Thomas K. Bacon was the founder of the company and was also involved with the Manhattan Fire Arms Co. as the superintendent. He also had business dealings with Ethan Allen and Allen & Thurber. When Manhattan moved their operation away from Norwich, Bacon left the company to stay behind and work on his own firearms manufacturing company. Part of Bacon’s contract with Manhattan included a “no-compete” clause that he would have been in violation of had the heads of Manhattan had bothered to sign the agreement. Nevertheless, they still took him to court with no official judgement recorded. Bacon’s arms were popular on the commercial market and many made their way onto Civil War battlefields upon being privately purchased by soldiers.

This example is a carefully made and beautiful .22 rimfire revolving pepperbox. The pepperbox concept first became popular in the 1830s, but this model was new and improved to utilize the bored through cylinder to handle standard metallic cartridges, since the Smith & Wesson owned Rollin White Patent expired in 1869. The frame is made of iron with a fine silver plate finish but I don't think any finish remains. The serial number on this revolver is 857. The markings on the receiver are "BACON ARMS CO. NORWICH, CONN and it soes not have the Patent dates on it. "22 cal" is stamped on the frame below the cylinder. Barrel is 2-3/8 inches in length. The trigger has to be returned manually so I think a new spring is needed

Caliber: .22 rimfire

Bore is in good condition and the revolver is in good working order even though it needs a trigger return spring.

Take a look at the pics! This is a little beauty and it is RARE!!!

The frame inside the grips are marked 954 as well as under the barrel.

The Barrel Length is 2 Ľ”. The front sight is a half-round blade fixed to the barrel while the rear sight is a very shallow “U” groove in the top strap. The grips are black checkered hard rubber with a checkerboard pattern inside a circle at the top of each grip. The grips show only very light handling marks. The checkering is sharp without maring. The grips rate in about Excellent overall condition. The finish is Nickel Plated with about 75% nickel remaining which is about normal. The finish is all original.

This handgun retains about 70% of its nickel finish. The markings are clear. Overall, this handgun rates in about fair to Good condition. The action functions correctly. The cylinder lock-up is a little loose. There is a top safety feature which still functions on this handgun. The cartridge door behind the cylinder on the right side is missing a little tab to open this piece for loading but it still works without it.

Here is a nice old antique rifle / shotgun over / under combo! The locks are marked RICHARDS on both sides and they do match as well as the hammers. Westley Richards is a British manufacturer of guns and rifles and also a well established gunsmith. The company was founded in 1812 by William Westley Richards, who was responsible for the early innovation of many rifles used in wars featuring the British Army during the 1800s. It remained in the hands of the Richards family until it was purchased by Walter Clode in 1957. I believe this combo rifle to have been made circa 1840-50. The combo has the approx .44 caliber rifled rifle barrel over the 12 gauge shotgun barrel. Each barrel is about 30 1/4 inches long. Both hammers work but the left sided one is a bit sticky and probably needs some fine tuning. The walnut stock is in good condition with a ding here and there as normal. The wrist is hand checkered. The stock has a patch box located in it as well which is brass. The triggerguard is engraved and iron. There are two original ramrods being slightly different as one is for a rifle barrel and one is for a shotgun. The top of the rifle barrel is marked with "REAL TWIST" and the sides of the barrels have proof marks on them with some being Belguim. I cannot see down the rifle barrel but the shotgun barrel bore is good. The entire firearm looks fantastic! Check out the pics!!

Here we have a .36 caliber reproduction of a Civil War Colt Navy Pistol. This is an Italian copy by Richland Arms Co. The Richland Arms Company was based in Blissfield, Michigan from the 1960s to the mid 1980s. The company imported a range of Spanish and Italian shotguns and pistols. They are no longer in business. This firearm is a copy of the Model 1851 Colt Navy Revolver in .36 caliber. This particular percussion weapon is in the white and I see no evidence that it was ever blued. The screw heads are blued as are the nipples and loading plunger and have never been messed with. The entire piece pretty good. The walnut grips are in good condition and the brass has been around long enough to start getting patina on it. The serial number is hand stamped 05118. There is a surface scratch on one side of the cylinder that you can see in the pics. The barrel has inside evidence that it was fired and is in good condition after cleaning. The only thing missing is the wedge screw. The wedge is not serial numbered. There is only one serial number on this piece that I have seen and it's on the frame forward of the trigger guard. Still a shooter!

Here we have a WW2 Nco sword and scabbard. This decent example is a genuine WWII Japanese Type 95 NCO Samurai Sword or katana with aluminum handle construction and machine made blade. The grip wrapping and menuki are cast-formed. Typical WWII Imperial Japanese Army style fittings, with a single suspension ring from the scabbard, known as the New Military Sword (shin guntou) style.

All NCO swords were numbered and this example has 3 matching serial number 05333 on both the blade and the drag and throat of the scabbard. Most swords do not have matching numbers because somewhere along the life of the sword the scabbard was changed. This scabbard should have been painted brown but now it is black and the paint was removed on the drag to view the serial number. This sabbard is complete with metal locking spring tab that secures the blade to the scabbard. This prevents the sword from falling when the soldier is running. Traditionally this function is assigned to the Habaki. But machine made swords like this one do not have the accuracy of manufacturing that enable the Habaki to perform such a function. NCO Katanas were issued to soldiers who did not want to take their family sword to battle or who came from poor families that did not have swords to pass down through the generations. This one is not of the best quality as witnessed by the construction. The aluminum "Cord" on the grip should have been painted brown but I believe this piece has been cleaned some. I believe that this sword is marked with the Kokura Arsenal markings. Kokura Arsenal was in service from 1936-45. The blade appears shorter than the scabbard but I have had several and all but one were shorter than the scabbard. Poor quality control in the later years I suspect. This is still a good example, not excellent by any means but good and original. For this piece $495.00

Here wehave a small Hymn book entitled "The Patriot's Hymn Book" dated 1862. The book is in overall good condition for a book that was obviously used often. There is some foxing an staining as normal for a used book and it consists of 95 pages. The owners name, Henry W. Gaumer ?, is hand written in the book many times on the inside front and back covers. There is a paper inside written in pencil which states That Henry W. Gaumer died at Nashville, August 13, 1863 and was in Co. K of the 60th Reg. and I am assuming Indiana since the book has in it the name of the town he came from "Flora" and the county "Carroll County" of which both are in Indiana and this book was found in Frankfort, Indiana which is not far from Flora. I did not find his name in civilwardata.com and he is not listed in the 60th Indiana roster. Bindings are somewhat loose but still there. Historic Piece! 4 1/4 X 2 7/8 inch. Look at the pics!

Here we have an early wooden stirrup. The cross bolt at the top has a hex nut on it. The hex head was developed as far back as the very early 1830’s (James Nasmith) , and the square continued mainly in the production of agricultural implements. In Australia the implement manufacturers bought square mild steel bars and made their own into the 30’s (Depression). 1/4" Gutter bolts with square nuts are still available.

The common rule was that Square was used where the fastening was not required near the vertical member, or with tension, and then hexagonal were used so as to get closer to the vertical member. If you needed to get even closer, then an Octagonal nut was used – Some of the early steam engines used octagonal nuts, again in the early 1800’s. so the notion that all hex nuts are modern are not entirely correct.

This old wooden stirrup was found with a Civil War spur but that does not for certainity make this stirrup Civil War but it is old. The stirrup shows cracks in the wood at the bends which would be where the stress would be after this piece was heat/steamed into shape. Makes a good decorator from the old west! $25.00

CIVIL WAR ERA BREAKAWAY SAFETY STIRRUPS – MATCHED PAIR AS KNOWN TO BE USED ON CONFEDERATE OFFICER’S SADDLES:

Here is one of a pair of Civil War Era Breakaway Safety stirrups! These stirrups were know to be used on Confederate Officer's saddles during the Civil War and are well documented on page 290 of The American Military Saddle 1776-1945. Two specimens are known to have been excavated from separate battlefield sites, and a pair of these stirrups are attached to a documented Confederate Officer’s saddle. On pages 95-96 of Craig Caba’s Historic Southern Saddles is pictured the Virginia manufactured saddle, fitted with a “CS” marked pommel shield, that was owned by Capt. W. Stuart Symington, a staff officer who served with MG George Pickett. This saddle is equipped with stirrups identical to the one offered here. This particular stirrup measuers 5 1/2 inches tall and is 4 1/2 inches wide at the tred. This iron stirrup featured a split stirrup strap loop and a hinged tread plate that would allow the stirrup to “open”, releasing the rider’s foot, should he be thrown from the saddle. This iron stirrup has been plated. We believe this to be an English imported stirrup and plating was used in England when modern plating methods were introduced. Electroplating is a versatile finishing process that’s been around since the early 1800s. Simply put, it’s used for applying a metal coating to a substrate using direct electric current. If you look at the bottom of the stirrup you will see where the middle bar was heat forge welded on the solid end. This process was done before welding with current. This stirrup is as found and has not been cleaned in any way. The stirrup is hard to open and could use some lubricant to make it easier. For this single stirrup $145.00

Here we have several parts for the Brazilian Light Mini Rifle that was imported into the states during the Civil War. The "Brazilian Light Minie Rifle" name for these Liege-made Light Minie Rifles that were imported during the Civil War was likely named thusly by pioneer Civil War arms collector and research William B Edwards, who discusses the theory that these guns originally produced for a Brazilian naval contract and were re-routed to American arms purchasers for Civil War use. I found these parts together in one lot and unfortunately not the entire firearm and no history accompanies them. The lot includes the DC anchor stipped lock place with the main spring still attached. the trigger grouping, band spring, internal lock pieces, brass buttplate and the hardest piece to find if you are missing it, the brass spread wing eagle with US shield in the center plate. I have seen several of these rifles that are missing this little brass plate and they are impossible to find on the loose but here we have one! Several parts are marked with the DC anchor marking. Take a look at the pics! Will not separate! All, including the rare eagle brass plate, for $350.00

Here we have a medal that commerates the 4 boundry markers being placed around Camp Morton Civil War CS Prison Camp in Indianapolis. On October 25, 2003, the Ben Harrison Camp #356, with ceremonies at the Herron-Morton Place Historic Park located at 19th and Alabama Street, honored the twenty-one organizations and individuals who supported the creation and placing of the markers that now denote the four corners of Camp Morton, the Civil War prison camp for captured Confederate soldiers. Particularly recognized for their substantial contributions was the Herron-Morton Neighborhood Association and the Indiana Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. This medals face shows a Union Lock and that same image is on the 4 boundry Markers.

History of Camp Morton

At the beginning of the Civil War the animal barns and stockades of the Indiana State Fairgrounds, located in Indianapolis, Indiana, were converted into a training ground for newly recruited soldiers. The camp was named after Oliver T. Morton, certainly the most famous, powerful and tenacious state governor of Indiana in that or any subsequent era. After Grant captured Fort Donelson in Tennessee on 16 February 1862, the camp began to be used as a staging area for captured Confederates who suffered northern winters in inadequate shelter, a misery further compounded by limited rations, promulgated by Commissary General of Prisoners as a cost-saving measure. From 1862 to 1865, the camp would reach a peak population of 5,000. During this period there were 1,763 deaths and more than 150 escapes—at times achieved by throwing stones to draw fire and then simply rushing the guards. After the war, despite the privations they experienced, former prisoners remembered Camp Morton with some fondness by erecting a statue of its 1862 commander, Colonel Richard Owen in the State Capitol. To learn more about Camp Morton, please visit the following web site:

Here we have a standard sized dinner plate that has a nice portrait of General U.S. Grant transferred onto it. The back of the plate simply has a sticker on it saying that it was made in the USA. No other mfg's markings are on it so I have no idea of who made it or even what it is constructed of. It kind of feels like plastic but it has weight to it so I just don't know. The plate is housed in an oval frame and ready to hang on the wall. For this piece $25.00

Here we have a Union Hospital Image from Washington, D.C. with a chewed .58 caliber Mini bullet mounted under it that has been chewed. The story is that sometimes bullets were used for pain relief to bite on when anesthesia was not available. Hence, there is where the phrase "Bite the Bullet" came from. I cannot guarantee that the bite marks on this bullet are human bite marks as many critters bit down on dropped bullets as well. It makes for a nice display and an excellent conservation piece! $25.00

Here we have a paid of 1850-1870 Militia Knights Head swords without scabbards. During the 1840s these militia style officer swords were a desirable weapon. The purchaser could go in and they could pic the option they wanted. You could buy the base model and depending on how much you wanted to spend you could add on anything that you wanted. Each sword is a little different. Both have cross guards with the stippled background detail. The original handles are intact on the swords and both have a pleasing look to the bone material. Many people mistakenly say these are ivory but they are not. At the top of each sword is the Knight's head pommel Design. One sword is slightly shorter than the other being 31 1/2 inches long with a plain blued elipitical blade. There is a small amount of rust near the cross guard and I cannot see a makers mark because of the langets that come down each side of the blade. The crossguard on this one only has the decoration on one side or the guard with just stippling on the other side. There is some minor damage to the crossguard but not bad at all. The grip is nice and tight.

On the other sword this piece is 33 3/4 inches long overall. The blued blade is engraved but it's light and so not easy to see. The crossguard and the Knightshead pommel cap are a little loose which is normal for this type of sword as the tang is peened through the pommel cap. You can peen it some more if you like to tighten it up but it's not necessary.

Both bone sword grips are nice with no breaks or chips and only a small chip out of the shorter one. The great book AMERICAN SWORDS AND SWORD MAKERS by Richard Bezdek on page 599 has a very similiar type of sword listed as Militia Noncommissioned officer sword c. 1850-1870. I knew Richard well and respected him highly. You could actually collect only militia swordsand have a tremendous collection of all different styles of this sword. Take a look at the pics! For the Pair $325.00

Here we have an old Fraternal Sword and scabbard made by McLilley. Here is a bit of history about M.C. Lilley & Co.

From modest beginnings in 1864, the M. C. Lilley & Company eventually became world renowned as manufacturers of regalia. The company was founded by four leading citizens of Columbus, Ohio - all veterans of the Civil War. They were Mitchell Campbell Lilley, John Siebert and brothers, Charles and Henry Lindenberg. All four men were members of the Odd Fellows and published the “Odd Fellows Companion”, a publication of the fraternal organization. Through this newsletter they received many requests from people wanting to purchase regalia. They decided to produce the items themselves and thus a company was born. The Lilley Company produced swords, banners, flags, emblems and uniforms for fraternal societies and organizations such as the Masons, Odd Fellows, and the Knights of Pythias, Knights Templar as well as police and military uniforms.

Beginning in a small building at 253 South High Street, the Company eventually grew to occupy several large buildings at the corner of East Long and North 6th Streets. Items produced by the Company can be roughly dated by the changes in the Company’s name. From 1865 to 1881 the name was the “M. C. Lilley & Co.”. In 1882 after the death Of Mr. Lilley the name changed to “The M. C. Lilley & Co.” and remained such until 1925 when it was shortened to “The Lilley Co.”. The Company was merged with the Henderson-Ames Company of Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1931 and the name was changed to “The Lilley-Ames Company” until 1951 when it was sold to C. E. Ward. It operated under the name of “Lilley Ames Co.” until 1953. It went out of business in 1965

Since this sword is marked M.C.Lilley & Company (worn but legible and I don't think there is room for the word THE) then this sword was made from 1865 to 1881 but probably closer to 1881 then to 1865. The sword shows quite a bit of age. The sword sports a Knights head pommel with a wooden grip and "Bow Tie" cross guard with the handguard of a Cross in a Crown on it. The brass mountings and drag are quite ornate. The scabbard body is iron. The blade is 28 inches long with is correct and has worn engraving down both sides. The blade exhibits a nice dark patina but no rust. The entire sword/scabbard shows great patina and has not been messed with or cleaned. The pommel has a bit of chain attached to it but about 1/2 is missing. The grip is loose but that is not uncommon as these swords were held together by peaning the tang on the end of the Knight's Head pommel and over time they work loose. You could tighten it up if you like by repeaning the tang but I personally would leave it alone. Take a look at the pics! $125.00

Here is what looks to be a period WW2 Japanese Tanto with secret compartment in sheath to hide gold. Maybe this knife was made post war to sell to the occupying American Forces after the war but I do not know for sure but it sure looks older than that to me. I have seen several items that were made to sell to the GI's by the Japanese citizens. This piece is done very well especially the wrapped rayskin grip! It looks really good! The grip to the tsuba is 3 1/2 inches long and the blade past the tsuba is a little over 9 inches long. The enamel painted sheath is still in good condition but missing a couple of items on it and, of course, there are chips in the finish. The blade has been sharpened and is quite sharp. Take a look at the pics! For this piece $275.00

Here we have a large D-Guard Bowie knife of the type popular with Confederate Soldiers. Unfortunately, I believe it to be a contemporary example, perhaps from the 1940's on. It came in with several items including WW2 items. The knife measures 16 3/4 inches long with a hefty nearly 12 inch long clip point bowie blade. The handguard is sheet steel and the grip is stag held on by two through the tang rivits. The tang appears to have been peaned over. The entire outfit is tight with no blade wobble at all. There appears to be writing done with an electric pen on both sides of the ricasso. One side says 28 while the other side just has initials. The blade is heavy, fairly thick steel and seems to be in excellent aged condition. Take a look at this massive piece! Nice Quality! $225.00

Here we have a small framed .38 Caliber Harrington & Richardson THE AMERICAN DOUBLE ACTION revolver! The Harrington & Richardson revolver called The American Double Action Revolver was made from the 1880s all the way up to the 1940s with only minor changes. It was made in several barrel lengths with the short barrels being the most common. It was made as a 6 shot 32 caliber and a 5 shot 38. This one is a 5 shot chambered in 38 S&W caliber with a 2 1/2 inch barrel. This particular revolver is nickel plated with some nickel lacking as normal. The aciton works great in both double and single action. The lettering is nice and sharp and the barrel exhibits a nice shiny rifling. The hard rubber grips are in very nice condition with no breaks or cracks. The serial number is 39645 but I have not been able to find out if it is pre 1898 so it will have to go to a C&R holder or to a FFL for transfer. Take a look at the pics! Very reasonable for $125.00!

***Here is another small framed .32 Caliber Harrington & Richardson THE AMERICAN DOUBLE ACTION revolver just like the one above except that it is inoperable and one of the grips has a chip out of it. Also, The nickel is just not as good as well. This one is serial number 1000 so I am quite confident that it is an antique and no subject to Federal rules. This would make a great shadow box Old West gun for the office or den wall! AS IS, this one is $65.00.

Here we have an Original Imperial German Artillery Regiment Marked M1883 Reichsrevolver by Erfurt dated 1893 - Serial 7176 with holster. M1883 Reichsrevolvers, or Reichs-Commissions-Revolver Modell 1883, was a service revolvers used by the German Army from 1883 to 1908, when they were superseded by the Luger. The model 1883 is like the 1879 Model but with a shorter barrel. Although the design was dated, the weapon was extremely robust, and they were still used through World War I. The M1879 is referred to as the "cavalry model" and the M1883 as the "officer's model," by collectors, which were not official designations. These revolvers were single action only and were fitted with a robust safety lever on the left hand side of the frame, which functions differently depending on hammer position. If the hammer is in the fire position, the safety locks the hammer completely. If in the half-cock position, it locks the hammer there, facilitating reloading of the revolver or removal of the cylinder. They also have a very robust ring on the bottom of the grip, for securing the revolver to the uniform. The ring is missing on this one. Also a small pin for pushing the cylinder rod over so the cylinder may be removed is also missing but you can still get it out by using an awl to push the spring outward for cylinder pin removal. Otherwise this revolver is in excellent condition overall with a great amount of the original bluing remaining! The other surfaces are a dark plum color and the hammer / trigger are bright. The grips are walnut and in excellent shape. When the hammer is pulled back the cylinder locks up tighter than any revolver I have seen before. The rifling in the barrel is sharp and crisp with a bright finish. This revolver has a 10.6mm x 25R mm Barrel. 10.6×25mmR is almost identical to 44 Russian.

This revolver is throught to have been brought back by a WW2 Vet but unfortunately he passed before we could confirm the story.

Overall this revolver rates in the very good catagory! You can also see on the backstrap where this revolver was issued then crossed out and issued again! Also comes with a nice leather holster. It's been with it forever! Nice piece and German quality! $1595.00

Here we have a WW2 Naval Flare Gun! This is an Original U.S. WWII 37mm M8 Pyrotechnic Signal Flare Pistol by SWC. Good condition 37mm big-bore signal pistol of WW2. The barrel has studs for attachment to a flare port in the fuselage of large aircraft such as bombers. The right side of the frame is marked:

M

S.W.C.

U.S. PROPERTY

PISTOL PYROTECHNIC M8

On the reverse side of the barrel it is marked "NAF" (Navy Air Force) "166". The serial number of No. 287893 is stamped on the backstrap.

This example is offered in very good condition.

This is a flare pistol, mainly used during and after WW2 in aircraft. Although intended to be mounted in the M1 aircraft mount, this flare pistol can be used as a conventional flare pistol. The barrel hinges down to allow removing a spent cartridge or loading a cartridge from the breech end of the barrel. But a grooved type cartridge can be loaded from the muzzle end of the barrel.

Designed during WW2 to be manufactured by the Eureka Vacuum Cleaner Co. and so uses metal stamping instead of machined parts. The frame is cast aluminum.

The two levers on the top of the barrel give it a very unique look. The top hook shaped lever when pulled back allows the pistol to be installed or removed from the M1 mount in an aircraft. The M-1 mount is really a “little door”, fastened rigidly to the aircraft, which permits the pistol barrel to extend through the aircraft’s outer skin. The mount absorbs the recoil of the pistol.

This flare gun is in good condition and operates as it should. The top hook is to release it from the aircraft mount and the back hook is to open the breech. Nice piece of WW2 History! $355.00

Here we have a very nice legible Civil War Document from the 12th VRC (Veterans Reserve Corps). The Veteran Reserve Corps (originally the Invalid Corps) was a military reserve organization created within the Union Army during the American Civil War to allow partially disabled or otherwise infirm soldiers (or former soldiers) to perform light duty, freeing able-bodied soldiers to serve on the front lines. The corps was organized under authority of General Order No. 105, U.S. War Department, dated April 28, 1863. Prior to The title "Veteran Reserve Corps" was substituted for that of "Invalid Corps" by General Order No. 111, dated March 18, 1864, to boost the morale. So this document dates after March 18, 1864 but no date is on the document. The document is as follows: "Articles of Camp and Garrison Equipage lost by men of Co. B 12th VRC. 55 Fifty-five Cap numbers".

"I certify that the foregoing number of Corps numbers were at various times lost by men of Co B 12 V.R.C. without any fault of theirs as they were a poor article and easily came off the caps." "J.S.Rossler Capt Co B 12 V.R.C." As a bonus there is a brass Co. 'B' insignia included with this framed piece. The frame measures 8 3/4 by 10 3/4" with the document matted to 5 X 7". The 12th V.R.C. was organized at Albany, N.Y., October 10, 1863 and Mustered out by November 25, 1865. Nice and clear! $90.00

Good C&R Iver Johnson HAMMERLESS .38 S&W Revolver

Self-Defense Revolver Made Circa 1900

Here we have an Iver Johnson Arms & Cycle Works Double Action Safety Hammerless Revolver, made circa the turn of the 20th Century in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. Iver Johnson & Martin Bye both started with Ethan Allen, then started their own company in 1871. The company continued to operate until 1993. This revolver was designed to be small and concealable for self-defense.

This revolver is chambered for 5 shots of .38 S&W and features a hammerless design, great for concealed carry in the 1920s. The top of the barrel is marked “IVER JOHNSON ARMS & CYCLE WORKS/FITCHBURG, MASS. U.S.A.” The grips bear an owl on each side and they are in great shape.

The overall condition is good. The original blued finish is still found in protected areas. The original blue finish on the trigger guard is 50%. The markings are clear and legible. The grips are fine with just a few dings on the bottom. The bore is excellent, sharp and shiny. The action is excellent. The front blade side is missing. The cylinder rotates freely until engaged by the double action. This is not a bug but a feature, Iver Johnson designed this revolver without a lock-up. For this 2nd model revolver $225.00

Here we have a Iver Johnson Revolver for parts or repair. This revolver is chambered for 6 shots of .32 caliber. The top of the barrel is marked “IVER JOHNSON ARMS & CYCLE WORKS/FITCHBURG, MASS. U.S.A.” The grips bear an owl on each side and they are in great shape. This topbreak revolver was made from 1871-1993 with this 3rd model being made from 1909-1941. The revolver looks great and functions great but now to the bad news. There is a buldge in the barrel about an 1 1/4 back from the muzzle and so this revolver cannot be fired safely. The barrel either needs to be shortened or changed and in my opinion it's a great wall hanger! All the markings are sharp and easily readable. Too bad about the buldge but it's there! Check out the pics!! $125.00

Here we have an excellent collection featuring a Model 1884 (1886 dated) Model Trapdoor Springfield Rifle in 45-70 caliber! The serial number on this piece is 338759 and fell in between know serial numbers of issued Trapdoor rifles that were originally issued to the 2nd Oregon Vol. Infantry, 3rd Texas Vol. Infantry and 4th Ky Vol. Infantry. This info is from Springfield Research Service Vol. 1. In Vol. 2 of the same research material this serial number falls in between numbers issued to members of the 160th Indiana Volunteer Infantry who served during the Spanish American War of 1898. This rifle came out of a long time collection in Indiana so this is entirely possible but we have no proof. The owners dad had this in his closet for many years and has since passed. When anyone thinks of the Spanish American War they thing of Krag Rifles and carbines which is true but what most people don't know is there were tons of Springfield Trapdoor rifles that made the conflict as well! Here is the 160th Indiana Infantry history. After the sinking of the USS Maine in the harbor at Havana, Cuba February 15, 1898, President William McKinley began a buildup of U.S. armed forces. Indiana Governor James A. Mount received orders for four infantry regiments and two light artillery batteries. Citizens responded so quickly that Indiana was the first state to meet its full quota of recruits. Four volunteer infantry regiments formed immediately: 157, 158, 159, and 160. The state also formed the 27th and 28th Light Batteries, Company D of the Second U.S. Engineers, and the 14th Company of the U. S. Signal Corps. The men who made up the 160th Indiana Volunteer Infantry were from these cities in Indiana: Marion, Decatur, Lafayette, Wabash, Bluffton, Ossian, Columbia City, Warsaw, Tipton, and Huntington. The Company was mustered in at Indianapolis May 12, 1898. The 160th IVI was sent to Chickamauga Park, Georgia for training and then to Newport News, Virginia; Lexington, Kentucky; and finally to Charleston, South Carolina. There the 160th boarded the SS Saratoga and set sail to Cuba. The unit was based in Matanzas, Cuba for occupation duty. The 160th returned to Savannah, Georgia aboard the transport Thomas in March 1899. The company was mustered out at Savannah April 25, 1899.

Now on to the rifle. This rifle is in excellent used condition and may or may not have been used in Cuba. We just don't know. The rifle has seen little use but does have the dings on it from use. The muzzle has some wear on it where the bayonet would have been placed on it. The blue has streaks of brown plum patina on it. This rifle has not been messed with and shows honest age. There is still some case color on the trapdoor and receiver, especially inside the breech block. All the markings are nice and clear being easily read including the cartouche on the reverse stock. The action works just fine and the rifling is deep and shiny! This piece is complete except for the sling. Take a look at the pics!

Also included with this piece is the waste belt and US belt plate which are in excellent aged condition. The original US marked 45-70 bayonet with sheath is also included and in very nice condition! The rig comes with 2 McKeever 45-70 cartridge boxes. One is attached to the belt and in good overall condition with some verdigris (green material) on it but can be cleaned without harming the leather. The other McKeever cartridge box is missing the closure tab and both are missing the rifle tools. There are 2 random 45-70 cartridges in the boxes but must be shipped separately via UPS if you want them. They are an additional $20.00 For the rest of the grouping $1,750.00 Thanks for looking!

Here we have a WW2 handmade 35 X 15 1/2 Red, White & Blue Netherlands (Dutch) freedom flag that was most likely made during the Nazi occupation. Early on the Nazi's let the Dutch display their flags but later changed their minds about the Dutch displaying their own flags. The invaders placed the Netherlands under German occupation, which lasted in some areas until the German surrender in May 1945. Active resistance, at first carried out by a minority, grew in the course of the occupation. The occupiers deported the majority of the country's Jews to Nazi concentration camps. The German occupation of the Netherlands began after five days of fighting in May 1940. Bombers of the Luftwaffe had dropped their deadly payloads on Rotterdam during the Rotterdam Blitz, killing almost 1,000 of the city's civilians and destroying tens of thousands of homes. This flag has a black measuring 36 inches long and is carved at both ends to presumably fit into a wall socket or something like that. The carved top probably held some sort of finial. The flag is wools and exhibits a moderate amount of damage but it's lucky to have survived at all! This is a rare flag to find in any condition from the WW2 Period. For this flag $250.00 Check out the pics!

A couple of older Double barrel 12 ga shotguns recently came into the shop. Here is the first one:

1. This first one is an I.Hollis & Sons 12 gauge Double Barrel shotgun. I. Hollis & Sons was a gunmaker in London from about 1861 – 1915. In that time they made everything from quality sporting guns to cheaper export pieces. Damascus or “ Damascus twist ” barrels are older shotgun barrels that typically were made before 1900. Iron and steel ribbons were twisted and welded together. Damascus barrels are weaker than modern barrels and are not designed for the high gas pressures created by modern ammunition. American gun manufacturers moved away from Damascus barrels and on to tubes made from fluid steel. Around the 1880s, Damascus barrels became an object of the past. British gunmakers manufactured Damascus steel barrels through the early 1930s and this is an English shotgun. The shotgun is in really nice shape but someone had removed the firing pins, probably for safety, as it probably hung over the fireplace for display. The double barrel shotgun is nearly 48 inches long with 32 inch barrels. The bores show some corrosion from using black powder but are mostly shiny. The other finish of the barrels is a nice dark patina. The top of the rib between the barrels is marked with the makers name and DAMASCUS. THere are a couple of minor dents in the barrels. The back action locks work fine and are ornate (check out the pics!). The hammers and hammer screws are correct and original to the piece however the right hammer hesitates back but doesn't hold. The wood stocks are engraved/checkered and in pretty nice shape especially for a firearm that is over 100 years old! The forearm is missing the little, probably gutta percha, wedge at the end. The original gutta percha or plastic butt plate is still present. Overall a very nice looking shotgun! You'll have fun looking for the firing pins! These Hollis shotguns can go for some really substantial money but this one, missing the firing pins, is $350.00 and again, check out the pics!!!

2. Sold!!!

This second double barrel 12 gauge shotgun is mfg by J. Stevens, thus it is an American Shotgun made in Chicopee Falls, Mass! The only marking is J. Stevens A & T Co. Chicopee Falls, Mass. USA -Pats. Appl'd For- on left side of lock, and Stevens on early plastic or gutta percha butt plate. The name J. Stevens A&T (Arms and tool) was used from 1886 to 1916 when the name was changed to New England Westinghouse for the production of Mosin-Nagant rifles. In 1920 the name and company was bought by Savage Arms. The time frame for this brand shotgun is 1886 to 1916. The model number depends on whether it is a sidelock or boxlock. The sidelock had the hammers and cocking mechanism contained in the sideplate of the shotgun. The boxlock had the hammers attached to the receiver itself so this is a boxlock model. The boxlock model numbers were - Model 1877-225-235 This shotgun operates as it should and has nice bores in the 30 inch barrels. The firearm is 46 1/2 inch long overall. The wood is in generally good condition but could use a good stipping and finish reapplied. The forearm has a substantial chip out of it that you can see in the pics. Both forearm and butt stock are checkered. The metal finish shows a nice dark patina. The markings are clear. The right side hammer and screw is correct for this piece however the reverse hammer has been slightly lengthened and the screw is a replacement. Both locks lock back as they should and operate the firing pins as they should. C&R License eligible. Check out the pics! $250.00

NOTE!!!- WE HAVE JUST CAME INTO POSSESSION OF AN EXCELLENT 1942 DATED GERMAN LUGER ALONG WITH THE TYPEWRITTEN AND SIGNED LETTER FROM THE VET THAT CAPTURED IT IN NORTH AFRICA AND HERE IT IS!!!

Jmf

Here we have a very special item! This is a WW2 German Lugar captured by an Airman in North Africa!! This Airman is Staff Sgt. Howard Hoehn who captured this luger in 1943 in Tunisia. We have the original letter signed by Howard recalling the capture of the piece. He took it off a dead Motorcycle Soldier at a recent battle! A collector friend of mine purchased this Luger directly from Howard in 2002. Howard recently died in 2019 at the age of 98 so it's time for my friend to move this on as he is in his 70's as well. We have Howards' obit with this grouping as well. The Luger had one magazine and Howard purchased another but we have been unable to find that other magazine but if we do we will include it. Howard was stationed in Trinidad but was sent on detached service to a temporary Air Field in Tunisia, North Africa to assist in changing engines on B-24 planes which had been grounded. Howard and two other GI's went on a little sightseeing trip and ran across this battlefield in which he spotted a wrecked German motorcycle with it's rider deceased. They found his Luger still in the holster and fished it out then putting it in his pocket as they were not supposed to take souveniers at that time. Howard snuck it back into the country and it was never discovered. I have all of that info in his letter along with the serial number of the Luger. Now on to the Luger:

This is an example of a pre-WWII German Nazi Luger pistol that was manufactured by Mauser in 1935. 1935 was the second year of renewed Luger production, as the Nazis already had designs on Lebensraum in Eastern Europe and payback against the French. Fixed sights, with the "G" date mark on the chamber and "S/42" on the front toggle link. Straw colored small parts, checkered grips and a blued magazine with aluminum base. Minus the magazine, the numbers are matching. This 1935 pattern has by the following features: * Flat, checkered toggle knobs. * No grip safety (except for special models like the Mauser Banner grip safety and the Krieghoff grip safety models). * Stock lug. * Salt blue finish. * Aluminum-base magazine. * Six-groove rifling, 1 turn in 25 cm.The "G" Code denotes the last date of production as 1935. This was the last year that the germans concealed their production date on weaons of war. This pistol is all matching numbers not including the magazine. The Luger is in very fine conditionand would rate up there in condition overall. The straw parts are very strong with somewhat light wear on the inside of the trigger. The original blue rust is very nice and the grips pretty nice as well with a depression in the obverse grip at the top. The bore and chamber show almost no wear at all. Very nice! The aluminum toggle plug on the magazine shows the serial number of 2634 as well as what looks like an eagle over 63. Take a look at the pics! They pretty much say it all! Fantastic!!! Finding original WW2 weapons with signed documentation as to where and when this vet acquired it is getting quite rare today. C&R Eligible ! Take a look at the pics! They pretty much say it all! Fantastic!!! For this firearm and the history $7,500.00

Here is a Great sword that recently came in. The sword is a Japanese WW2 mounted sword that were captured/obtained by an Army Cook in New Guinea. The New Guinea campaign was one of the hardest-fought of World War II. ... And it lasted a long time: From March 8, 1942, when Japanese forces first landed on the island, to the end of World War II in the summer of 1945, fighting took place across the island of New Guinea and in its nearby island chains. These two swords were purchased from the Daughter of the Soldier. She lives near Lake George, IN but lived in Dayton, Ohio during WW2. Now on to the swords:

! Check out the evaluation sheets on this one lower down in the pics. This one probably had a leather covering over the wooden scabbard but now lacking. This one is probably quite old from the early Edo period being made from 1603 to 1868. Nothing needs repaired here-just the blade needs polishing by someone who knows how. Take a look at the pics! Nice!! $1450.00

Here we have a very nice red stone pipe or Catlinite Ax pipe from the Santee Souix.Catlinite is also known as Pipestone. It is a red stone that is easy to carve because it doesn’t have a lot of quartz in it. It can be worked with carving tools and knives. Its red color comes from iron in the soil. The name Catlinite first came into use after the painter, George Catlin, visited the stone quarries in 1835. George Catlin recorded a legend about the origin of using Catlinite to make pipes, where the Great Spirit told the tribes that this stone must only be used to make pipes. This pipe is nicely done and measures about 6 inches long and 3 inches tall. There is a cip to the bit at the top but that's all of the damage to this fine piece.

Twenty-third Light Battery

INDIANA (3-YEARS)

Twenty-third Light Battery. -- Capt., James H. Myers.

This battery was organized in the fall of 1862, and was mustered in Nov. 8. It was on duty in Indianapolis, principally in guarding prisoners, until July 1863.

A section of the battery accompanied the 71st regiment on a brief expedition into Monroe, Sullivan and Greene counties in June to quell disturbances created by the interference with and killing of the government officers engaged in the work of enrolling.

Orders were received on July 4, to send all available troops to Kentucky to intercept Morgan. The battery accompanied the troops to Louisville and rendered efficient service in the pursuit and capture of the raiding forces.

Returning to Indianapolis, it moved with the six months' regiments in Sept., 1863, to Camp Nelson, Ky., being assigned to Willcox's division, and proceeding with it to Cumberland Gap, thence to Knoxville it participated in the campaign in the mountains of eastern Tennessee.

It was engaged at and near Knoxville, the operations extending from Morristown to Greeneville, and from Bull's Gap to Cumberland Gap. The battery was assigned to the 23d army corps and took part with it in the Atlanta campaign.

After the occupation of that city the battery moved through Georgia and Tennessee; was engaged at Columbia and Franklin in November; and joined the forces at Nashville in time to take part in the battle before that city in December.

It then took part in pursuit of the retreating foe as far as Clifton, Tenn., where it took transports for Cincinnati moving thence to Washington, D. C. and Alexandria, Va., from which place it sailed for Wilmington, N. C.

It marched to Goldsboro, Raleigh and Greensboro, took part in the operations of Schofield's forces in that state, and after the surrender of Johnston's army was ordered home, reaching Indianapolis June 27, 1865, with 3 officers and 123 men. It was mustered out July 2, 1865.

Well, there you have it. Good History! For this image $275.00

Here we have an excellent Taurus TX 22 with 2 mags (one extended) and the owners manual.

TAURUS TX22 22LR 16+1 BK/BK 4" THREADED BARREL

Engineered to deliver best-in-class accuracy and reliability, this rimfire polymer sporting pistol shoots and feels every bit like a custom-tuned competition model without any costly upgrades or modifications. From the short, smooth pull of its precision-designed Taurus Pittman Trigger System (PTS) to the built-in comfort of its ergonomic grip, the TX22 is one performance-driven full size that’s ready to race. Right out of the box. By the way we do not have the box.

Not only is the TX22's fire control system engineered for smooth and comfortable operation, the other side of the equation is addressed once the firing pin strikes the cartridge case rim. The grip geometry combines with an optimized slide weight to deliver virtually no recoil, furthering the TX22's fast-action, quick-sight-acquisition performance so desired for a competitive-level handgun or for rapid-fire target practice.

This firearm looks to have virtually no wear to it. It's been used but not much at all. The action works extra well and the bore is excellent! Comes with the original 16+1 mag and an extra mag with magazine extension.

Here we have an old acoustical guitar that was carried in WW2. This gentleman, Bill Hasema, from Lafayette, Indiana carried this guitar while in the USN. There are names of his buddies on here which were probably shipmates and places he went like Texas City, Rock of Gilbradar, Caraco, Freetown, Aruba and Casablanca but then later he must have joined the crew of the US Navy's SS Monmouth as it's documented on this guitar. The only ship name Monmouth was the USS Monmouth County. USS Monmouth County (LST-1032) was an LST-542-class tank landing ship built for the United States Navy during World War II. Named after Monmouth County, New Jersey, she was the only U.S. Naval vessel to bear the name. Length: 328', Construction started: June 9, 1944, Launched: July 9, 1944. Here's her history:

LST-1032 was laid down 9 June 1944, by the Boston Navy Yard, Boston, Mass.; launched 9 July 1944; sponsored by Mrs. Jennie M. Kneeland, and commissioned 1 August 1944, Lt. J. M. Medina in command.

Following shakedown, LST-1032 departed New York, 8 September 1944, for the west coast, arriving at San Diego, 4 October. Continuing on to Hawaii, she embarked troops there and sailed 23 January 1945 to take part in the assault on Iwo Jima. While debarking marines there, on 20 February, an enemy shell struck her bow, killing one marine and wounding nine. Despite this, rough seas, and stiff Japanese opposition, she completed debarking her troops and supplies on the 22d, and proceeded to Saipan.

She next sailed from Saipan to take part in the Okinawa invasion, arriving off that island 1 April. Discharging her cargo and men, she departed for Saipan, returning to Okinawa 30 May with more supplies. LST-1032 then steamed to the Philippines, arriving San Pedro Bay 15 June. Until Japan's surrender, she ferried troops and munitions among the Philippines, with two additional runs to Okinawa. Then she carried occupation troops to the Japanese home islands until 19 November, when she sailed for the United States, arriving San Francisco 30 December.

Sailing to the east coast, LST-1032 anchored off Little Creek, Va., 15 April 1946, and joined the Amphibious Force, U.S. Atlantic Fleet, with which she operated for the next 9 years. She joined expeditions to Greenland in 1951 and 1952, and took part in training exercises in the Caribbean. LST-1032 was named Monmouth County 1 July 1955, decommissioned 14 October 1955, and berthed in the Florida Group, Atlantic Reserve Fleet.

This guitar witnessed a lot ! The guitar is solid with just finish flaking. All the names are scratched into the surface so there's no chance on losing the history! Take a look at the pics as there are signatures everywhere! This is quite a historic piece! This old girl is solid as a rock! Still plays! As you can see in the pics there is a lot of wear to the fret board! Perhaps you can tell who made it by the pics. For this one of a kind piece of WW2 History $1100.00

Here we have a very large garrison flag that was altered by sewing loops at the top to hang on the wall although it has eyelets along the side as well. The 45-Star Flag: This Flag became the Official United States Flag on July 4th, 1896. A star was added for the admission of Utah on January 4th, 1896, and was to last for 12 years. The Presidents to serve under this flag were Grover Cleveland (1893-1897), William McKinley (1897-1901),and Theodore Roosevelt (1901-1909). This flag was probably used during the Spanish American War of 1898! The flag measures 8 feet by 12 feet in length and would cover the entire wall of a normal home! There is some water staining on it and just one small spot of damage but otherwise it's a great example of a late 1800's flag! $350.00 for this one! Check out the pics!

The spout is complete and works as it should. The markings on the top are nice however the 1 in 1838 is almost gone due to a light stamp. The N.P.Ames stamp is deep and strong and there is the stamp "WS" by one of the Eagle heads on the body. There is wear on both sides from use. $650.00 for this one. Check out the pics!Mo<

Here is another Model 1851 Revolver powder flask that is marked on the top AM FLASK & CAP Co. American Flask and Cap Co. was in business in NYC from 1857- 1870. This one has seen use and poor storage but is complete and but is missing the spring so it's not functional as it should be. I have been told that these were for the 1851 Colt Revolver but it is not small being 7 3/4 inches long overall being dark with some dents so I believe it to be for a rifle. Take a look at the pics! $350.00

This last one is a N.P.Ames 1838 Peace Flask like the top one. It is missing the entire spring so it's not functional but still looks great!

Here we have two Civilian Used Powder Flasks from the 1840's or so. The first one is a James Dixon & Sons Sheffield (england) flask that someone has cleaned up a bit too much. It's pretty but no patina remains. It's 7 3/8th inches overall counting the spout. I do not believe that the spout is complete. The mechanism is there but the spring is missing. This one is brass with a silver plated medallion on the front showing a hunter leading his horse with a deer over the back of the horse and the hunter's dog is walking beside them. The top of the flask is marked with the Dixon info and also IMPROVED PATENT. There are no splits in the seams and the 4 small rings are still present for the suspension cord. There are a few dents as one would expect in the body of the flask. Here is some other info found on this particular style of flask: "This was a relatively expensive “medallion” style flask. These flasks were distinguished by the presence of a circular medallion which was applied to the surface of the flask after it had been constructed. Medallions were usually highly detailed and could be made from precious metals. The medallion on this flask is made of copper and depicts a hunter with a dead deer slung across his horse. Because of the copper material, this flask would not have been as expensive as other James Dixon & Sons items that were decorated with Britannia metal or silver medallions. The Sheffield business was well-known for its manufacture of high-end powder flasks throughout the nineteenth century." We have found a name "W Webber" scratched in the medallion as well as other info below it that we just can't make out. Could be something very interesting! For this fine old 19th century flask $125.00

This second flask is more for a pistol or for priming. The flasks is brass and measures about 4 3/4 inches long overall. The flask is fully operational and sports oak leaves and acorns on both sides. There is no damage on this one but does have the usual small dings and it is dirty. For this one $35.00

The spring mechanism is complete and does function. The triangle rings are present and in good shape. The patina is very nice.

Here we have a pretty nice old Smith and Wesson No. 1 1/2 Single Action .32 caliber revolver! The Third Issue departure from the previous two models, and is actually officially termed the "Model No. 1 1/2 Single Action Revolver". Unlike the first two issues, this was a top-break design, consistent with the design of the Safety Hammerless or S&W .38 Single Action. It can be readily distinguished from the first two issues by the large hinge in the front of the frame below the barrel, and the lack of an ejector rod. The grip is rounded at the butt, and is similar in appearance to that on the 2nd Issue. Most importantly, this revolver marked the debut of the .32 S&W centerfire cartridge. This particular revolver was produced from 1878 to 1892. It has a 5 shot fluted cylinder with a 3 inch rifled barrel that still has good rifling in it. The grips are checkered rubber with one missing a chunk at the bottom of the obverse grip which you can see in the photo. S/N is 57245. I believe this is the first top break action for a Smith & Wesson. The barrel pivots on the bottom framestrap instead at the top like the previous models. This was S&W's first 32 caliber revolver with automatic ejection and made in the break-open style. This one has the strain screw located on the forestrap which allows for adjusting tension on the mainspring. The earlier models do not have this option. All in all this is a great little revolver of a time gone by and operates flawlessly! Check out the pics! For this piece $295.00

Here we have a pretty nice nickel plated Smith and Wesson Model 1 third issue that was produced in 1875 and sent to New York for Distribution. We have the original letter from Smith and Wesson that was issued on September 13, 1991 inquiring as to the disposition of this revolver. This one is the standard issue revolver with the 3 3/16" barrel. All mechanics work well and the pistol is complete. Locks up good and tight when the hammer is cocked. The obverse grip may be a replacement as it's a shade lighter in color than the reverse grip. These little .22 short caliber revolvers were made from 1868 to 1882 so that puts this one right smack in the middle of production years. Some nickel is lacking as is normal but all in all a very good representative piece of what was popular with gamblers and ladies of the night! Read the letter and look at the pics!! For this one $350.00 with the letter.

Here we have Vols 1 & 2 of Casey's Infantry Tactics 1862! They are in good field carried condition, complete and bindings are tight. Vol. 1 has 279 pages of content + extra pages and fold outs while Vol. 2 has the same. Each is Id'd to the officer that carried them and they were owned 2 times by different soldiers! One was a Lt in the 75th Illinois Infantry and I can't quite make out his name. Here are those stats:

Seventy-fifth Infantry. - Cols., George Ryan, John E. Ben- nett; Lieut.-Cols., John E. Bennett, William M. Kilgour; Majs., William M. Kilgour, James A. Watson. This regiment was organ- ized at Dixon and was mustered into service Sept. 2, 1862. It remained at Camp Dement perfecting its drill until Sept. 27, when it was ordered south. It arrived at Jeffersonville, Ind., Sept. 29 and crossed the Ohio on the next evening. It was en- gaged in the battle of Perryville, the loss of the 75th in this engagement being severe. It participated in the skirmishes and battles of Nolensville, Knob gap and Stone's river, in the lat- ter engagement being in the right wing and during the entire battle it was actively engaged, losing 2 killed, 25 wounded and 21 taken prisoners. It participated in the battle of Lookout mountain and during the Atlanta campaign was engaged at Dalton, Resaca, Marietta, Kennesaw mountain and in all the skirmishes and battles of the brigade until Atlanta was reached and the campaign ended. It was in the battle of Franklin, where it suffered severely; was also in the battle of Nashville on the second day, charging through an open field on the enemy's line and capturing 223 prisoners and a large quantity of arms and camp equipage. Two officers and 6 men were wounded in the en- gagement. The regiment was mustered out on June 12. 1865.

and the other was a 1st Lt in Co. H, 59th Illinois Volunteers, Frederik N. Boyer. Here are his stats:

Residence Kansas IL; Enlisted on 8/9/1861 as a Sergeant. On 8/16/1861 he mustered into "H" Co.

Fifty-ninth Infantry. - Cols., John C. Kelton, P. Sidney Post; Lieut.Cols., Charles H. Frederick, Calvin H. Frederick, Joshua C. Winters Clayton Hale; Majs., P. Sidney Post, D. McGibbon, Joshua C. Winters, Clayton Hale, James M. Stookey. The 9th Mo. infantry was organized at St. Louis, Mo., Sept. 18, 1861, by Col. John C. Kelton, formerly captain in the U. S. army. The companies composing the regiment had been raised in the state of Illinois and mustered in at sundry times, in July, August and September, and Cos. A, B and C, under Capt. Clayton Hale, had been on duty at Cape Girardeau since Aug. 6. On Feb. 12, 1862, by an order of the war department the name of the regiment was changed to the 59th Ill. infantry. On March 7 the division of Brig.-Gen. Jerk C. Davis, of which the 59th formed a part, fought the enemy all day at Pea ridge and the following day moved to reinforce Gens. Carr and Asboth, who had been forced to fall back. On Aug. 5 it moved to Bay Springs, Miss., and had a skirmish with the enemy's cavalry. It next fought at Perryville, Ky., losing 113 killed and wounded out of 361 men going into action. On Oct. 14 it had a severe skirmish at Lancaster, Ky. The regiment was deployed as skirmishers in the advance on Stone's river and drove the enemy before it 9 miles, until he was found in force at Nolensville. It took part in the attack upon Nolensville, from which the enemy was driven in confusion, and also was in the assault upon Knob gap. At the battle of Stone's river the 59th changed front to the rear, supporting the 5th Wis. battery and for a long time held the enemy in check. When it was withdrawn it brought off the guns of the battery, from which the horses had all been killed. It was then put in position on the Murfreesboro pike, which it held until Jan. 2, when it forded the river and assisted in driving back the enemy. It then held a position in the extreme front until the morning of Jan. 4, when it re-crossed Stone's river and the enemy evacuated Murfreesboro. During the siege of Chattanooga the regiment was constantly under fire of the enemy's batteries. It led the brigade in the assault on Mis- sionary ridge, from which the enemy was driven in confusion and pursued for 15 miles to Ringgold, where the 59th again attacked and drove him from his position. On Jan. 12, 1864, the regi- ment was mustered as a veteran organization, and on Feb. 6 started on furlough for Springfield, Ill., which place it reached on the 1Oth. Returning to the front, on May 7 it sup- ported the attack upon Tunnel Hill, and the following day com- menced the attack upon Rocky Face ridge, where it was con- stantly engaged until the 13th, when the enemy abandoned his position. It was warmly engaged at Resaca, again came up with the enemy at Adairsville, and thence to the time of crossing the Chattahoochee, was engaged at Kingston, Dallas, Acworth, Pine mountain, Kennesaw mountain, Smyrna camp ground, besides innumerable skirmishes. It crossed the Chattahoochee and presented itself before the fortifications around Atlanta, and from that time until Aug. 25 was under fire night and day. On Aug. 28-29 it was engaged in skirmishing with the enemy at Red Oak, and fought in the battle of Lovejoy's Station. It fol- lowed Hood into Tennessee, skirmished with the enemy at Colum- bia, was in the first line of the assaulting colunm at Nash- ville, and planted the first colors on the captured works on the afternoon of the first day's fighting, assaulting and carrying the enemy's works near the Hillsboro pike. In this battle the regiment lost in killed and wounded one-third of its number engaged, among whom were 9 officers. On June 16, 1865, the regiment left Nashville for New Orleans, La., and on July 9 arrived at Indianola, Tex., thence marched to San Antonio, and was stationed at New Braunfels, Tex., until Dec. 8, 1865, when it was mustered out and ordered to Springfield, Ill.. for final payment and discharge.

Here we have an antique Baby Russian Smith & Wesson .38 Caliber Revolver! Smith & Wesson introduced the “Baby Russian” in 1876 as their first .38 caliber revolver. According to the sources that I studied they actually developed the cartridge first (146 grains at 740 fps), and then designed the revolver around it. The result was a 5-shot, top-break action initially offered with 3.25 inch and 4 inch barrels. It used the same simultaneous extractor as the No.3 revolvers, though this would change after only about a year with the move to a 2nd variation. The first two variations used a single action spur trigger, but this was replaced by a normal trigger and trigger guard on the 3rd variation. In total, about 161,000 were made by the time production ended in 1911. This particular revolver comes with a copy of a letter from Smith & Wesson (the original was misplaced). The letter states that this is a first model (this one has the 3 1/4 inch barrel). This one has a low serial number of 601 and was shipped from the Smith & Wesson Factory to the distributor M.W. Robinson of New York City. This revolver was made in 1876, the first year of production! This copy letter will be included with the revolver to the purchaser. This revolver is nickeled with some lacking and wear as one would expect. The piece functions correctly and locks up tight. The grips are also in excellent condition! This revolver is old enough to have been at the Little Bighorn with Custer but I am 100% sure it wasn't! Lol! For this piece of post Civil War History $650.00 Take a look at the pics!

Here we have a very nice full stock 40 caliber octagon barreled rifle made circa 1850-60's in Lafayette Indiana by Thomas Underwood as evidenced by the lock plate markings. The barrel itself is marked A ROBERTS. Thomas Underwood is listed in the American Gunmakers book but no other info is available. The firearm is percussion and is about 51 inches long overall with a 34 1/2 inch long rilfed barrel. The color on the iron is a dark brown patina. This is a two trigger "set trigger" system. The set trigger system works but the hammer will not quite lock back so it needs a little tinkering. The stock is in good condition having turned black or dark brown in several areas over the trigger striping. There are dings here and there from use but no cracks or breaks that I see. The ramrod ferrels, trigger guard and buttplate are all brass. The brass plate on the bottom of the buttplate has a small section missing both fore and aft with only the center portion remaining but mainly just for looks. The ramrod, as usual, is an incorrect replacement. For this fine old rifle $1295.00 Locally Made!!! We consider these rifles pieces of Art!! Check out the pics!!!

Japanese Arisaka Type 99 7.7 mm rifles:

New Arrivals 62

The Type 99 rifle Arisaka was a bolt-action rifle of the Arisaka design used by the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II.

During the Second Sino-Japanese War in the 1930s, the Japanese soon found that the 7.7mm cartridge being fired by their Type 92 heavy machine gun in China was superior to the 6.5×50mm cartridge of the Type 38 rifle. This necessitated the development of a new weapon to replace the outclassed Type 38, and finally standardize on a single rifle cartridge. The Imperial Japanese Army (IJA) developed the Type 99 based on the Type 38 rifle but with a caliber of 7.7mm. The Type 99 was produced at nine different arsenals. Seven arsenals were located in Japan, with the other two located at Mukden in Manchukuo and Jinsen in Korea.

The IJA had intended to completely replace the Type 38 with the Type 99 by the end of the war. However, the outbreak of the Pacific war never allowed the army to completely replace the Type 38 and so the IJA used both rifles extensively during the war. As the war progressed, more and more cost saving steps were introduced in order to speed up production. Late war rifles are often called "last ditch" or "substitute standard" due to their crudeness of finish. They are generally as crude as the 1945 dated Mauser K98k of Germany, or worse.

The Type 99 was produced in four versions, the regular issue Type 99 short rifle, the Type 99 long rifle (a limited production variant), the take-down Type 2 paratroop rifle, and the Type 99 sniper rifle. The standard rifle also came with a wire monopod and an anti-aircraft sighting device. The Type 99 was the first mass-produced infantry rifle to have a chrome lined bore to ease cleaning. All of these features were abandoned by mid-war.

A. This rifle is a very nice Type 99 Arisaka Rifle in 7.7mm. The action works great and it has a great bore! The receiver is marked 9 9 type and the mum has been only lightly cancelled. The two piece stock is in very nice condition as well. The stock has a ding or two but no cracks or breaks. The long range sight is missing the aircraft lead arms but otherwise complete. I find many later rifles missing these arms so I think at one point they left them off. There is also no dust cover or monopod which is quite common as well. The sling swivels are present and in good condition. Cleaning rod is missing. This rifle was manufactured at the Nagoya Arsenal which made rifles from 1923 to 1945. Serial number 5605. I believe this is a series 5 rifle. No import marks. Check out the pics! $495.00

B. During World War II the Type 99 rifle was the standard long arm of the Japanese Imperial Army. However as the tides of war turned against Japan, Japanese industry found that it had to produce more and more rifles using less and less resources. This involved several modifications to the Type 99 which simplified it. By the last year of the war Japan was manufacturing “last ditch rifles”, which were Type 99’s simplified so much that they were basically reduced to nothing more than a working rifle. While they fired, the effectiveness and quality of such rifles was questionable.

This rifle is a nice 34th series "Last Ditch" type 99 rifle with the mum intact. This one still has a few refinements that are not on the last "Last Ditch" riflessuch as a bayonet lug and sling swivels. This one also has the dust cover intact. The quality is a little lacking, but believe me, it gets much worse!! This rifle is in good condition but more crudely made than the earlier ones. You can see welds on the front barrel band and it has a wooden butt plate plus no cleaning rod. The cocking knob is not knurled being blob welded on as well. Still a two piece dovetailed stock with a handguard and still rather nice. The rifle has a crude later rear block sight and a front wedge blade sight. No long range sight on this series. This rifle was manfactured at Toyo Kogyo in Hiroshima. This rifle has Japanese characters on the stock but I do not know what they mean so if you do let me know and I will post it. The action works well on this 7.7mm rifle and the bore/rifling is good. All in all a good example of a last attempt to continue war. $695.00

C. This Arisaka Type 99 7.7mm rifle is an import from C.A.I. (Central Arms International) out of Vermont. This is one that was imported from China sometime after the war. It's rare to find a Japanese Arisaka with import markings on it as most were destroyed after the war except for G.I.Bringbacks but the U.S. Government furnished Japanese Arisaka's to the Chinese after the war. This one has seen hard use but is still mostly intact and has the Mum intact as well! This rifle is from the Nagoya Arsenal (1923-1945). The rifle is in generally good condition with good markings. The stock is in good "dinged" condition having been used considerably and the bore is quite serviceable. This rifle has the cleaning rod. It is missing the front barrel sling but has the rear sling. The rear sight is the long range sight without the aircraft leading "wings", never had them. The front sight is the typical protected sight. THe action works well. Nice old Arisaka and lucky to be here since it went to China after the War !!! Check out the pics!!! $495.00

Italian Carcano Rifle in 6.5 shortened to sporter

New Arrivals 58

Carcano is the frequently used name for a series of Italian bolt-action, magazine-fed, repeating military rifles and carbines. Introduced in 1891, this rifle was chambered for the rimless 6.5×52mm Carcano round (Cartuccia Modello 1895). It was developed by the chief technician Salvatore Carcano at the Turin Army Arsenal in 1890, and was originally called the Modello (model) 91 or simply M91. Successively replacing the previous Vetterli-Vitali rifles and carbines in 10.35×47mmR, it was produced from 1892 to 1945. The M91 was used in both rifle (fucile) and shorter-barreled carbine (moschetto) form by most Italian troops during World War I and by Italian and some German forces during World War II. The rifle was also used during the Winter War by Finland, and again by regular and irregular forces in Syria, Libya, Tunisia and Algeria during various postwar conflicts in those countries.

This particular Carcano Rifle/Carbine has has the stock shortened and the original front barrel band removed. Also the top hand guard is missing. I think that this one originally had provisions for a bayonet to be attached. The barrel is 17 inches long to the receiver making me believe that it is the original barrel. The receiver has good markings on it including the date of 1917. The stock that's left is in good condition and looks nice. The action works very well and the bore is very nice! The original rear adjustable sight is still present and operating well. Should be a great shooter!!! For this piece $325.00

CZ vz Model 27 pistol. The vz. 27 is a Czechoslovak semi-automatic pistol, based on the pistole vz. 24, and chambered for 7.65 mm Browning/.32 ACP. It is often designated the CZ 27 after the naming scheme used by the Ceská zbrojovka factory for post-World War II commercial products. However, it is correctly known as vz. 27, an abbreviation of the Czech "vzor 27", or "Model 27". By 1924 Model 24, began production at the Ceska Zbrojovka (CZ) plant in Strakonice. Built in 9mm short (.380 acp) the sidearm was accurate and well-balanced and, not surprisingly, reflected elements of an earlier Nickl design that had been rejected by the German army during the First World War. The military declared the Cz-24 a success and quickly placed an order for 100,000 units to be delivered over the course of 5 years (1924-1928). Delays plagued the contract and it would not be until 1931 that the order was finally filled by CZ. Part of the problem concerned the new plant’s ability to operate at such high production levels, while another problem concerned the pistol design itself. The original design had been for a 9mm Parabellum round and, as such, the Cz-24 employed a semi-locking bolt and a short recoil action where the barrel rotated as part of the rearward movement. The problem was that changing the caliber of the design to 9mm Short meant that this feature was an unnecessary and now nothing more than a manufacturing complication. Realizing that the pistol could be redesigned in a simple blowback action, CZ engineer and designer, Frantisek Myska, began work on a 7.65mm (.32 acp) version. The result was the Model 27 or vzor. 27 or, as it is more commonly known in the West, the Cz-27. The eight-shot pistol retained the earlier look of the Cz-24 but cost about half the price to produce. The new sidearm was issued to police, security units, and border guards, as well as being sold on the commercial market. Beyond questions concerning the stopping abilities of its round, the Cz-27 was well liked. The sidearm proved durable, and had an unmistakable snappy retort upon firing. From its adoption in 1927 to the German occupation of Czechoslovakia in 1939, approximately 183,000 units were produced.

When Germany secured the country in 1939 the entire Czech arms industry was put into motion. The German army for instance, satisfied with the Czech LT-38 tanks, incorporated them into Panzer regiments under the designation Panzerkampfwagon 38t. Pistols were no exception to this rule. The Heereswaffenamt (German Army Weapons Office) examined the Czech Cz-27 and, liking what they saw, ordered Ceska Zbrojovka to continue producing the sidearm. The CZ plant at Strakonice was renamed Bohmische Waffenfabrik AG and production was restarted on the pistol which was given the German designation Pistole Modell 27. In the 13 years before German control the average monthly output of Cz-27s was just over 1000 per month, but with the logistical pressures of the Second World War the Strakonice plant’s output jumped to over seven times that number. In all, 475,000 units were produced under German direction before the American army took control of the Strakonice factory in May, 1945. These sidearms were primarily issued to security forces and police units, with reports that the Luftwaffe and Army also employed the pistol as an acceptable substitute.

Upon the conclusion of the conflict the company quickly returned to its old name and to production of the Cz-27 as well. The Czech government ordered 45,000, which were produced in 1945 to 1946. In the late 1940s the pistol was exported to a number of countries and military contracts were signed with India, Poland, and several South American nations. Model 27 production was officially phased out in 1950 with the introduction of the 7.65mm Cz-50. In all, almost three quarter of a million Cz-27s were made over a 24-year span, making it one of the most mass produced 7.65mm designs in history.

German production can be broken down into several broad categories. All will have “Pistole Modell 27 Kal. 7,65” stamped on the left hand side of the slide. Early German production at the Strakonice plant was stamped “Bohmische WaffenfabrikAG in Prag.” and the serial number along the spine of the slide.

This one has those particular markings on it. This firearm was produced during Nazi occupation and is in very good conditon. Markings are sharp, action works flawlessly and the bore is excellent. S/N matches. The magazine is marked P.Mod 27. Not perfect of course but very nice! Check out the pics! $650.00

7.65 "ALLIES" MARKED SEMI AUTO PISTOL made by Fab. de Bersaluzze Arieto-Aurena Y Cia, Eibar – “Allies”.

Spanish Eibar/Ruby Pistols. One of the more successful early automatic pistol designs of the turn of the century was John Browning’s Colt and FN 1903 (which were different guns, but used the same basic design). Spanish shops quickly began making their own copies of this very popular pistol, and one of them hit the proverbial jackpot. In 1914, the company of Gabilondo y Urresti (later to become known as Llama) built a better-than-average 1903 copy called the Ruby, chambered for .32ACP and with a 9-round magazine (larger than most of these types of pistols). Gabilondo sent a sample to France, whose government was in need of a huge number of pistols for the recently-begun First World War. The French found the pistol to be well-suited to their needs (cheap and effective), and proceeded to place a standing order in May 1915 for 10,000 of them per month. Pistols made for the French Army typically had a one- or two-letter mark in an oval on the rear left of the frame. These letters identified the manufacturer, irrespective of trademark name (see below for a list of these markings). In addition, pistols were supposed to be marked with a star or pair of stars on the bottom of the frame alongside the magazine well when they were formally accepted for French service. Not all of them received this depending on how urgent the need for guns was when a shipment arrived, but it is a useful marking to look for. This particular pistol has the BA stampings in an oval on the magazine and on the pistol at the rear of the frame on the left side indicating French Military Use.

From the early 1950s, to as late as 1960, the government arms factory at Kongsberg assessed the 7.65 mm pistols and marked them for Police use. It is reported that only top condition pistols were retained and others scrapped. The most commonly remarked pistols were the Browning M1922, CZ27, Mauser 1914/1934, and Mauser HSc. This particular pistol is marked to the Politi (Police) on the top of the slide.

The Eibar/Ruby pistols’ most distinctive identifying features are:

Shrouded hammer

Lumpy-looking safety lever above trigger

Longitudinal grooves around the muzzle for disassembly

Long 9-round magazine with heel release

all of which this pistol has.

This pistol is in very good condition although the slide stamping is a bit light regarding the maker. The action works just fine and the bore is nice. The wood grips are in very nice conditon as well. There are two different numbers stamped on the frame. This is a good one! CHeck out the pics! $450.00

type B baby nambu 7mm pistol

New Arrivals 55

The Nambu Automatic Pistol Type B, or “Baby Nambu” as it is known in US collecting circles, is a scaled-down companion to the 1902 “Grandpa” Nambu pistol. It was intended as a private purchase option for officers who needed to carry a sidearm, but did not want or need a full size service pistol. It was chambered for the 7mm Nambu cartridge (roughly on par with .25ACP).

Despite its small size and light cartridge, the Baby Nambu copied the complete locking system of the larger Nambu, resulting in a quite expensive pistol. As a result, demand was somewhat lacking, and only 6500 were manufactured between 1903 and 1929, when production ended. Most of these were made by the Tokyo Army Arsenal, although production did move to the TG&E company in about 1923 (presumably after the great Tokyo earthquake).

Just over 6,500 Baby Nambu pistols were manufactured from 1907 to 1923. Six thousand units came from the Tokyo Arsenal ( as this one did) , while five hundred units were produced by Tokyo Gas & Electric. Assembly took place until 1929. In 1923, the production of the Baby Nambu was halted because of the devastation caused by the Great Kanto Earthquake.

The Type B Model was initially intended for use by paratroopers and tank crews. It was never officially adopted by the Japanese Army, but it was made available to service members at discounted rates. Unfortunately, the cost of the Nambu equaled to about twice a new Lieutenant's pay in 1923, making it too expensive for a military contract.

This particular pistol is in good condition having some moderately severe pitting in a few places as you can see in the photographs indicating that it was stored poorly. The grips are prefect as well as the action and the bore is excellent! Except for the pitting this pistol has an excellent finish! Hard to believe that any pitting is here. This is a rare, hard to find pistol in any conditon! All s/n match except the magazine. Usually brings about $5500.00 but in this conditon this one is $3200.00 Check out the pics!!!

Reverend Andrew Manship (1823-1892) was a clergyman born in Maryland. In 1843 he was admitted to the Philadelphia conference of the Methodist Episcopal church and two years later was made a deacon and later an elder. In 1856 he was appointed tract agent but in 1863 he was again assigned to regular pastoral work.

Here we have a dandy Flintlock full stock rifle! This one is nearly 57 inches long with a 41 inch octagonal 36 or 38 caliber rifled bore. The barrel has a kind of buckhorn simple sight on the rear and a very simple yet effective blade sight on the front. There are stylized initials on the barrel which I think are GTF but I may be wrong on that. The lock is rudimently stamped SMITH C-VILLE IND. Here in Indiana that's how we say the name Crawfordsville some times. Crawfordsville is only about 20 miles from my shop. The frizzen spring doesn't exactly touch the frizzen but the rifle still works and it sparks when triggered. This is an original flintlock and not a reconverted one. The brass furniture is very nice on the buttstock. The patchbox lid is triggered by a button on the bottom of the stock. There are 3 brass thembles for the ramrod and of course a brass nose cap. Alson along the full stock there are german silver fish and cresents. The stock looks like tiger stripped maple but I think maybe the stipes were burned in with the burnt cord method. It's not that obvious to the touch. There are some minor age cracks to the buttstock but not bad at all. The reverse buttstock has a nice cheek relief carved into it. The brass furniture on this rifle is very nice and the reverse stock lock plate screw heads are chaised. Overall this is a very nice full stock flintlock rifle! We aren't sure of the manufacture date since it is rifled but it certainly has age to it. For this one $3500.00

Here's an over 13 pound weight heavy bench type rifle. This 1840-1850's percussion rifle is .38 caliber rifled. The percussion rifle measures 54+ inches overall with a 39 inch rifled octagonal barrel. The rear sight is a buckhorn type sight while the front sight is a simple blade sight. The barrel is signed with a sylish "H A" on top. The lockplate is maked T DAVIDSON & CO , CINCINATTI, O. Tyler Davidson & Co. became the largest hardware company in Cincinnati in the 19th century. The rifle is in very nice conditon with a set trigger that functions quite well. The barrel is pinned on the stock. There are 3 brass ramrod ferrels and a brass nose cap. I believe the ramrod to be a replacement as most are. The trigger guard is brass as well as the cresent butt plate. There is a brass moon escutcheon on the reverse side of the stock with the lockplate screw going through it and, as usual, there is a crack eminating from that screw outward toward the barrel about 1/2 inch. The stock is unadorned but quite nice with the usual ding from use and a little chip at the forward lockplate. This is a very nice rifle! Look at the pics! For this one $1950.00

Here's a heavy bench type rifle weighing about 10 1/2 pounds. The 1840's .45 caliber percussion rifle is in very nice condition! This full stock rifle measures about 54 1/2 inches long with a 39 inch octagon barrel. The barrel is equipped with a simple V type rear sight and a simple pin front sight. The barrel is marked GILBERT over ROCHESTER. The wood stock is the rope burned stock to look like curley maple. The stock and barrel are fastened by three wedge type fasteners. There are three brass ramrod thimbles with a brass nose cap. There is a modern cartridge stuck over the end of the broken ramrod. The action works with only one click (no half cock) and the nipple looks fairly new with a piece of leather placed over it so I think this rifle was used sometime in the last several years. The lock is unmarked. The stock is adorned by a brass pattern and patch box on the obverse side. The reverse stock has a german silver oval place on it. The stock is in generally very nice condition with the exception of a crack terminating at the reverse lockplate screw and escutcheon. This is a very nice old rifle! Take a look at the pics!

Here we have an approximate 32 caliber 1840's octagon barrel full stock percussion rifle. This one measures about 51 1/2 inches long from tip of brass buttplate to end of barrel. The barrel itself is 36 inches long and is stamped P RAMSEY. The octagonal barrel is rifled. The stock is solid but has had a break that you can see in the pics and is period repaired. There are some age cracks in the buttstock and there is what I call a ding crack with slight damage about halfway up the barrel on the obverse side due to stiking something at some point. There are 3 brass ramrod ferrels and a brass nosecap as well as a brass triggerguard and buttplate. The reverse has an escutcheon that harbors the lockplate screw that goes clear through the piece from one side to the other. The lock is unmarked. The trigger is a set trigger and it does function with one click back on the hammer. There is no half cock. There is a small piece of tin placed behind the nipple and in front of the top stock to try to prevent burning of the stock. The rifle has a typical buckhorn style sight on the rear and a simple blade sight up front. The patina is great with just a small section slightly cleaned on the lock plate to check for a maker I suppose. The stock does have a small cheekpiece on the reverse side. This piece was made and maintained with loving care! Found in Indiana. The ramrod is most likely a replacement as most are. For this full stock rifle $1250.00 Check out the pics!

Here we have a small card sized document entitled DOMAIN OF THE GOLDEN DRAGON. The Domain of the Golden Dragon is an unofficial but highly coveted award of the United States Navy and the United States Coast Guard. It is given to crew members of ships which cross the International Date Line. You enter the dragon's empire when you cross the International Date Line by sailing west, where Asian nations celebrate the power of the dragon. With the extensive Navy operations in the Far East since (and before) World War II, this passage has become so common that few initiation ceremonies are actually held. But the certificate, decorated with Chinese-style dragon, is still given out.

It is also awarded to dependents travelling together with their Military Sponsor.

This certificate was not only available to American sailors and other military branch members, but was also available to British Sailors when crossing the international date line. The British copies were printed by Gale & Polden Ltd. Portsmouth, England. This partiuclar one was fiven to George D. Sickels who was on board the U.S.S. General W.A.Mann (AP-112) in 1952.

Here we have two 10 ga Winchester Cannons! The originals were built from 1903 to 1958. Here is some history courtesy of THE CANNON STORE. Winchester 98 Signal Cannon The 10 gauge, Winchester Model 98 Breech Loading Signal Cannon was designed and patented by Charles H. Griffith for the Winchester Repeating Arms Company in 1901. The cannon debuted for sale in the March 1903 Winchester Catalog. In addition to the Standard Black Model, Winchester added a Chrome Plated Model in the 1930's. The cannon was manufactured at Winchester's facility in New Haven, Connecticut until 1958. In the 1970's the Bellmore Johnson Company obtained the rights to produce the cannon and has added several other models to the line. Today, over a century later the cannon is still produced in southern Connecticut, just miles from the original Winchester factory. Go to this address to read about the history: clip and paste to your browser http://www.bellmorejohnson.com/history

The first one needed a little work to get the extractor unstuck but it's working now and in great shape! The wheels are replacements and the barrel has been browned and is darker than the pics show. The pics were taken with a flash. It is all original otherwise with the original japaned paint on the carriage. We think this one was built in the 1940's to 1950s as it has the WINCHESTER stamped on the barrel separate of the patent numbers which are on the other side of the barrel. Numbers on the barrel are 806. This cannon looks great and works great now! Uses 10 ga blank shells which are available on the internet. Look at the pics!!!

The second cannon which starts at pic no. 10 by itself is all original and also works very, very well! Nothing has been replaced or fixed on this one ! There is no Separate Winchester stamped on this one and all the patent info is stamped right smack on top of the barrel which is indicative of 1930-1940 manufacture so I have been told. As a matter of fact the first ones released in 1903 had on the frame W.R.A. Co. TRADE MARK REGISTERED IN U.S.A. while the later ones had W.R.A. CO. TRADE MARK MADE IN U.S.A. The older of these two has the first markings so it could be older than we think while the new one of these two has the later markings. Take a look at the pics! They both are fantastic cannons even though they have some pitting on the barrel, but not that bad, and definitely show age! For the one that's been repaired $1,450.00 (the repaired one is SOLD!) and for the older all original one $1,700.00

MODEL 1873 COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER!

Here is a Model 1873 Colt Single Action Army First Generation Revolver in the scarce .44-40 Caliber round! The caliber is not marked on the firearm but I am confident that it's a .44-40 caliber Here is some history of the 1873 Colt SAA Revolver!

The Single Action Army became available in standard barrel lengths of 4 3/4 inch, 5 1/2 inch, as well as the Cavalry standard, original 7 1/2 inch. The shorter barrelled revolvers are sometimes called the "Civilian" or "Gunfighter" model (4 3/4 inch) and the Artillery Model (5 1/2 inch). There was also a variant with a sub-4-inch barrel, without an ejector rod, unofficially called the "Sheriff's Model", "Banker's Special", or "Storekeeper".. From 1875 until 1880 Colt marketed a single-action revolver in .44 rimfire Henry caliber in a separate number range from no. 1 to 1,863. A "Flattop Target Model" was listed in Colt's catalogs from 1890 to 1898. Colt manufactured 914 of these revolvers with a frame that was flat on top and fitted with an adjustable leaf rear sight. The front sight consisted of a base with an interchangeable blade. In 1896, at serial number 164,100, a spring-loaded base pin latch replaced the cylinder pin retaining screw and by 1900, at serial number 192,000, the Colt Single Action was certified for use with smokeless powder. In 1920, larger, highly visible sights replaced the original thin blade and notch. The revolvers remained essentially unchanged from that point until cessation of manufacture at the beginning of World War II. From 1873 through 1940 (with small numbers assembled during and after World War II, the so-called "Pre-War, Post-War" model), production of the Colt Single Action Army reached 357,859. This is identified as the "Pre War" or "First Generation" of the model. Calibers, at least thirty in all, ranged from .22 rimfire through .476 Eley, with approximately half, or 158,884 (including Bisley and Flat Top Target variations), chambered for .45 Colt. The next most prevalent were the .44-40 Winchester Center fire (WCF) at 71,392; 38-40 (38 WCF) at 50,520; 32-20 Winchester (32 WCF) at 43,284 and, the 41 Colt at 19,676.[

Now on to this old Colt :

This old colt is in excellent condition with most of the original blue on it with some of it thinning out some and fading some. I have seen several with the frame blued, presumably over the case hardening, but most with just the case hardened frame. This one has the blued flame and it matches the rest of the weapon so I think it is quite old if it was reblued. This particular Colt was made in 1913 and is in excellent working order! You can hear the distinctive 4 clicks when you cock it and the cylinder locks up tight. The original grips are complete with no cracks or breaks. The 7 ˝ inch barrel has excellent markings and an excellent bore. This is one beautiful revolver! Check out the many pics!! $2850.00 !!

It has two threaded holes on one end and one threaded hold with a slot on the other end. There is a backwards swastika on one side and the word FUHR and Kal. 6.35 on the other side. If you have any idea just let me to at ted.caldwell@comcast.net Thanks! Ted

Jmf historic clay pipe

Here we have a historic Native American Clay pipe. The Prehistoric Period—or when there was human life before records documented human activity—roughly dates from 2.5 million years ago to 1,200 B.C. and we believe that this clay pipe falls after that period into the Historic Period. This pipe has a tag on it that has on it 'Penna' 'Merritt coll.' and we believe this is Lyle Gene Merritt who was born on November 22, 1929 and passed May 6, 2021 of this year. Lyle had a huge collection of Native American Artifacts and was an expert in the field having hunting since he was a child. As a boy, he collected arrowheads while fishing in Money Creek near his Towanda home. He has more than 5,500 arrowheads, a rare netting stone, stone tools, scrapers to clean hides and ceremonial stones. He is quoted as saying ^touching something fashioned so long ago creates a bond with the hunter who made it." Lyle was from the Towanda, Illinois area and if the 'Penna' means Pennsylvania then there is a Pennsylvania, Illinois town about 2 hours from Lyle's home and that is probably where he found it. It's a very nice piece and measures about 5 1/2 inches long , about 1 3/8ths inches wide and is 2 inches tall to the top of the bowl. There is a hole on either end of the stem for drawing from either side. I was told some considered this a marriage pipe in that the native american bride and groom can both smoke it at the same time and if two native american men were having a sit down they could share the same pipe. Makes sense to me! The pipe is complete and solid with a small age crack that is just on the surface. For this historic piece of native american history $450.00 Guaranteed old and original! See the pics!

Here is a link to see the article written on Lyle.
