Here we have an old shooters bag with small shot pouch attached to it. The bag is still a fairly supple tanned leather measuring about 8 x 9 inches with a large protective flap. The closure finial is missing. The little shot pouch is also very supple and has a little scalloped design aound the edge and is attached to the stap by a cord. The strap is a coarse woven strap and I've seen similiar straps in larger size being used for cince straps on Confederate saddles. I'm not saying that this is a Confederate piece but I'm saying that it may be southern in nature. There is a little strap that a powder measure may have been attached to but now lacking. The hunters bag and shot pouch are in really good condition and have no holes in them. Nice display item!!! $195.00 Jmf 11 More Stuff 21

The Piccolo below is SOLD !!!

Here is a Civil War era Piccolo. The Piccolo is in pretty good condition considering it's age just showing a couple of shrinkage cracks but I do not believe they go all the way through. I have taken a pic of one to show you. There are 6 keys on this piece. The piccolo measures 12 inches long and comes apart in 3 pieces. There is one pad missing but can be made from a piece of cork should you want to play this. I can see no makers marks or any evidence of what key this piece is in. Hardwood construction with German silver mounts and keys. Nice display item!!! $295.00 More Stuff 38

Here's a primitive leather hunting bag that dates around the Civil War I believe. The bag measures approximately 7 1/2 X 6 1/2 and has a close down flap with torn hole. The piece that was used to affix the flag down is a vest side Civil War Eagle button. It looks like brass wire affixes it to the bag. The bag is put together by interlacing a leather lace. The starp is there but hard and crazed. Old cord holds two brass powder measures. There is a large powder horn that was held onto the strap with additional straps. The ornate plug end has the strap attachment point torn through rending it loose. The other strap is still affixed to the spout end of the horn. There is an iron staple that holds this strap on to the spound end. As you can see in the pic there is some severe horn damaged to this piece. Because it is damaged it severely affects the value of the horn. Damage is on one side only so it can still be displayed! From a central Indiana private collection. $275.00 jmf 3 More Stuff 28

ANOTHER COLLECTION OF LEAD AND IRON KNUCKS!!!

Here's another collection of lead and iron knuckles that date from the Civil War 19th Century through the early part of the 20th Century! I have taken pics of both front and back. Here they are:

THE two bottom sets of lead knucks are SOLD! The first 4 are hand cast lead knuckles that were popular on the Civil War battlefields as Soldiers could sand cast them from molten bullets pulled off the battlefield. They are all unique in their own way. These all fit very small fingers except for the most unusal 3 finger set which will fit my fat fingers! For each $120.00

OLD IRON KNUCKLES> Here's a pair of old iron knuckles that I was told was confiscated by a police officer when frisking a criminal many years ago. These are the same type of iron knuckles that was used by Civil War soldiers in the field. They are somewhat crude but much better made than the lead knuckles of the day. These are the typical kind found from the 19th through the early 20th century when brass knuckles came on the scene and were easier to make. I am a farm boy so they won't fit my fingers. Most men in the 19th early 20th century were smaller than men today. For this set $125.00 More Stuff 40

EARLY 1900'S BRASS AND ALUMINUM KNUCKLES FOR SELF PROTECTION!

Here are 4, what we believe to be, early 1900's brass and aluminum knuckles for self protection. 3 pair are heavy brass and have been cleaned some. These are all alike and obviously commercially made. They measure 4 5/8 inches long by 2 5/8's inches tall. All are cast and show come roughness but well enough made that I believe they are commercially made. The 4th set is all aluminum and very thin, however suprisingly strong!

Each sleeve cuff has three small gilt buttons. From 1885/86 on regulations called for three buttons on each cuff. These are getting very difficult to find in any condition and this one is in very nice condition with a few minor moth nips and soiled needing a good cleaning.

This is a very nice book with somewhat bent boards as he definitely carried this book during 1864-1864. If you look at the pic with his ink id in it you can see that he had this book during his stay in Beaufort, S.C. This outfit participated in the assault on Fort Wagner that the all black 54th Massachuttes unit was so famous for! One form is loose that I have taken a pic of and it is form 13. Annual Regimental Return for Alterations and Casualties. There is a little foxing to the first couple of pages then there is no more. This is a great piece of Civil War History Id'd! $195.00 More Stuff 77

New Arrivals 102 A & B

This $100 Confederate note shows a railroad train in center with straight white steam issuing from locomotive and along the left side of the note is standing woman holding a basket on her head representing a milkmaid. Hoyer & Ludwig earlier used this train design on a Confederate bond, Act of August 19, 1861. Situated in Richmond, they sold out in 1862, so the bulk of this type was printed by J.T. Peterson in Columbia, S.C. Written date of AUGst 24, 1862. On the back of this Confederate Note are two interest paid stamps (1863 and 1964) along with the original ink signing of Sept 6/62 JOHN BOSTON. For additional information on John Boston and his various official capacities during the war in Savannah, see McNeil, Confederate Issuers of Train and Hoer Notes, p. 21.

The note has printed on it "Six Months after the ratification of a treaty of peace between the Confederate States and the United States the Confederate States of America will pay One Hundred Dollars to bearer with interest at two cents per day/ Richmond Augst, 1862/ Receivable in payment of all dues except export duties/ J T Paterson, Columbia SC"

This note has been unfolded and is rated excellent with the exception of ink acid damage to the live signature on the back. Otherwise fine. For this piece of history $145.00

Here we have a nice circulated $500 CS Jackson Note! The largest denomination bank note issued by the Confederate States of America is also the only note to feature the Confederate Flag. This $500 note was issued to honor General Stonewall Jackson, one of the most beloved Southern commanders of the Civil War. Jackson was accidentally shot by his own men during a battle and died in 1863. This note was quickly issued to honor him. Would be in fine Condition if not for the folds so now very good. Shows 4 minor pinholes in folds. Still exhibits the nice pink color. Back is blank. Check out the pics! $495.00

Here we have a pair of very crude sand or dirt cast lead knuckles.

Metal ring and knuckle style weapons date back to ancient times and have been used all over the world for many hundreds of years. The Nihang Sikhs used an early variant called Sher Panja in the 18th century. Cast iron, brass, lead, and wood knuckles were made in the United States during the Civil War . Soldiers would often buy cast iron or brass knuckles from blacksmiths and sutlers and if they could not buy them, they would carve their own from wood, or cast them at camp by melting lead bullets and using a mold in the dirt as this pair looks to have been made.

The palm piece either was not refinely finished or was broken off and this pair of cast lead knuckles were discarded. It would be very uncomfortable to use these as they would simply tear up your palm. The finger holes are quite small as were the men generally during the Civil War and before. The finger holes seem to have been reamed out after the knuckles were cast. These knuckles weight about 11 1/2 ounces. Take a look at the pics! Unique and definitely one of a king! $95.00

Here’s a wonderful ornate double barrel shotgun that is of German Manufacture. I do not see a name on this fine 16 gauge double barrel but you may be able to figure that out by the proof stampings. There are tons of proof stamps on this firearm as well as the words FLUSSSTAHL KRUPP-ESSEN which identifies the steel as fluid steel used in the barrels and the company that provided the barrel blanks. These barrels were produced by Krupp Works in Essen, Germany. Also stamped on the barrels is the word Nitro N which indicates that this shotgun was produced circa 1912-1939. The barrels have nice shiny bores with no pitting. The bluing on the barrels is very nice but thinning and nearly all there with no dents or dings. The barrels open via an underneath horn side lever that is attached to a walnut checkered forearm. There is just a minor bit of damage to the edge of the forearm. The forearm is fastened by a key through escuteons. The buttstock is also nice walnut with the same checkering to the wrist as on the forearm. The buttstock is finished with a nice steel buttplate. There is minor wear with dings and such to the buttstock but nothing major and no cracks or breaks. The ornate hammers are matching and in great condition. The back locks, front receiver, trigger guard and tang are all highly engraved with floral engravings and look outstanding! The finger guard behind the trigger guard is ornate made of horn. The barrels are nice and tight and the action works perfectly. This is one beautiful shotgun!!! For this piece $1,100.00

SOLD!!!

A young gentleman walked in with this piece today. This is a French 19th century Artillery Saber lacking scabbard that his grandfather had picked up at the White River – river bed in the 1950’s in Greene County, Indiana. It couldn’t have been laying there long as it has a nearly complete grip with leather wrap and no pitting. His grandfather painted it with the blade being silver and the grip and guard being gold. Most of the gold is worn off the grip. In a good turn the paint may have kept the piece from deteriorating. This piece has ordinance marks all over it. The reverse P guard is marked with the Unit markings. The grip and back strap has the langets on each side with the rivet that goes all the way through. The paint was cleaned from the top spline just enough to read the inscription and it’s typical French in nature. Although it may look like the date is 1812 I believe it is really 1872. I have seen a lot of these swords over the years and these inscriptions are typical in the last part of the 19th century. This entire piece is nearly 36 inches long with a 30 inch blade. The fuller nearly goes the entire length and although it looks like it could have been shortened at first glance it ultimately looks like it wasn’t shortened. The paint is missing from the tip and you can see that under the paint it has a terrific dark patina. The young man who sold it to me said that he knocked the paint off stabbing the carpet with it. I don’t think he did that long as the patina is still on the blade and his Mom probably caught him in time! At any rate it’s still a nice piece and I would leave the paint on it if it was me but I don’t think it would take much to clean it off. No scabbard. $175.00

Here's an Austrian Flintlock Rifle/Musket Cavalry Carbine that I recently acquired. I received it from a very nice Gentleman from Arkansas. Unfortunately no history accompanies it. This carbine is a Rifled carbine being about 70 caliber and dated on the lockplate (1)852. The first digit is always lacking on these old Austrian firearms. It complete and fully functional. There are, what appears to be roman numberals stamped into the inside barrel channel on the stock. This one is marked WANZEL on the top of the barrel. Austrian arms were generally made on contract with the major gun makers of the day in and near Vienna. These makers usually marked their product with their name on the barrel of the arm near the breech. The major makers included BENTZ, FERD. FRUWIRTH (F.F.) , CARL HEISER, JOSEF JESCHER, ANNA OSTERLIEN, PIRKO, TH. ROTTME, G. SCHLAGER,TH. SEDERE, F. UMFAURER, WANZEL, and ZEILINGER , usually with the Z backwards. Lockplates were marked wi the goverment ownership mark which is a small double-headed Eagle and the date of manufacture deleting the number "1" from the year. Since the arms were not interchangeable matching numbers are usually found on all metal parts. See the pics!

Here’s an interesting piece that we just picked up. This is a Simeon North Model 1816 Flintlock pistol that has been converted to percussion. This pistol was made by Simeon North of Middletown, Connecticut circa 1817 to 1820 and a total of 19,374 were manufactured during that time. This is the early one of the two lockplates made by the font and style. This one has the S.NORTH in downward curve over an American eagle motiv with U and S at either side over bottom line MIDLn CON in upward curve. This weapon is a 54 Caliber smoothbore Martial Single shot pistol with a 9 1/16” round barrel and has a brass blade front sight on forward strap of the double barrel band. This pistol has an overall length of 15 ¼”. This pistol originally has a hickory ramrod now lacking. This piece had been laying out for many years and the wood has weathered overall and is somewhat smaller than normal but the stock that is left is solid and strong. There are a few areas where wood is lacking and I have taken pics of that for you to look at. This pistol came out of California with no history behind it. Whether it was left out in the desert or was taken to California as a souvenir is something that we just don’t know. The metal parts are in pretty good condition but a dark patina so it this pistol was in a wet climate it would really be rusty. The barrel is still shiny under the front barrel double strap so I believe it was dropped in the desert. The hammer moves back but does lock in place and the hammer falls when you pull the trigger with some force!!! The lockplate looks great however the S NORTH markings at the top are worn somewhat. (Look at the pics!) It looks like the hammer screw was replaced at some point with a washer placed under it as the head is somewhat smaller but it looks like the rest of the pistol in condition and patina. The hammer could also be a replacement as it has some simple engraving on it. All in all a great relic that is virtually complete! For this piece $495.00

3 COLT BULLET MOLDS!!

This first one on the left IS SOLD!!! in the picture is for a Colt Pocket Model .31 caliber revolver and is a double mold in round ball and conical bullet. The piece is rusty but not hurt. The Colt markings are faint on the top but there. this one is complete and in generally good condition. . The mold cavities need a good cleaning as they have some light closet rust inside and out. If you have a Colt 1849 pocket or Root revolver in fair to Good+ condition, this would make a great accessory. Would also go nicely with a well-used cased gun or set. $150.00

RARE! RARE! RARE!!!

SOLD!!!

Once in awhile you run onto something very special and very rare. This is what we did this time. This is a rare Southern made Derringer that was made in Memphis, Tennessee. This small derringer was made by A. LINDE. Turner Kirkland of Dixie Gun Works put out a small book entitled SOUTHERN DERRINGERS OF THE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY in the 1970's. On page 78 is a similiar derringer to the one we have. The text is as such: "#205 Linde is a lesser known gunmaker of Memphis and he is authenticated through newspaper advertisements of those days. Little is know of his history." Turner then goes on to talk about the derringer in the photos in his book. He does say that his gun has a particular shaped lock as this gun has and he talks about the barrel being round with a top barrel flat and so is this piece. He also mentions the barrel markings are A.Linde and so is this piece. Turner rates these derringers as to rarity from 1 to 10 with 1 being common and 10 being rate. A. Linde rates a 10 in his book so they are extremely hard to find. An internet search reveals no photos of any A. Linde derringers and the only other one that I've seen is in Turner Kirklands book. Flayderman's GUIDE TO ANTIQUE AMERICAN ARMS also memtions A. LINDE but no text or photos are available. (See page 407-9th Edition) I showed this particular derringer to a well know Civil War dealer and appraiser on a well known TV show and he said he never saw another but this one is correct all the way. This particular little pistol is 6 1/4 inches long overall with a 2 3/4 inch long barrel. On the barrel flat top is DERINGE A.LINDE. There are concentric rings around the barrel where the R would have been in DERINGER and before A. LINDE. The stock is a nice little American Walnut stock with not apparent damage. There is some very nice checkering on that buttstock. The lock is a floral decorated back action lock with no markings on it. The nammer is distinctive and also floral engraved. The barrel is round with a flat top and has a front silver sight and a rear simple notched sight. The barrel is rifled and looks to have 6 grooves. The barrel is held on with a rear tang screw and a barrel wedge which is the original. The triggerguard appears to be german silver. This is a very nice little derringer that operates flawlessly and is quite rare! No Southern Derringer collection is complete without this rare piece!!! $4,500.00 Item weapons 02

Here's a wonderful grouping and I'm confident that it all belongs together. The grouping consists of an NCO sword belt and plate, a leather holster with Civil War Moore Revolver and an id'd cap box. The id is for James G. Graham who Enlisted on 8/19/1862 as a Private.

On 8/19/1862 he mustered into "C" Co. IN 67th Infantry.

He was Killed on 5/22/1863 at Vicksburg, MS

.

The capbox has written in ink on the inside flap J.G.GRAHAM CO. C 67TH IND. There is a makers stamp on the cap box of McClellan and Co. Springfield, Mass who is listed as producing goods in 1861. The cap box is in good condition with one reverse strap broken

The holster is in poor condition with all the stitching missing and most of the exterior finish. The attachment strap has been wired as it was broken at the rivit. The initials in ink on the inside flap are J.G.G. and it could have spelled out the rest of the last name but as I previously stated it's well worn. The impring on the inside of this holster leaves no doubt that the firearm that was kept here was a Moore. This Moore in the grouping fits the imprint perfectly. There is no bottom plug in the holster as the barrel would have extended through the opening. This holster may not have been made for this gun but it fit it very well. The belt seems to have been buff leather and not bridle leather but I believe it was kept in an attic and is a little dried out. The NCO eagle belt plate is the early one with the 3 piece applied silver wreath and no benchmarks. The Moore Revolver was made from 1861 to 1863 with a total quanity produced at 5,000 to 8,000 revolvers. This is a .32 caliber rimfire weapon with a 6 inch barrel. This revolver has a 7 shot cylinder and a removable ejector rod mounted under the barrel. The barrel and cylinder swing to the right for loading cartridges. Brass frame and handle with decorative broad scroll engraving with just a little silver plating remaining. The cylinder and barrel were blued with a little of the original color remaining. Walnut grips with a square butt. The barrel markings have been overstamped or stamped twice. They are D. MOORE PATENT SEPT. 18, 1860. Quite a few of theperate se fine revolvers were known to have been privately purchased by Union officers and enlisted men and carried during the Civil War. This one is an early one as the serial number is 158! The revolver needs a new hand and spring for it to operate correctly. This is a historic early grouping from an Indiana Soldier who gave the ultimate sacrifice. $4750.00

TRADED!!!

Here's a nice little unmarked Bacon Mfg. Company of Norwich, Conn. single shot .32 caliber pistol. Bacon is believe to have made these little pistols for several companies and they were marked with names like MERWIN & BRAY NEW YORK, J.P.LOWER and A. WIRFFLEIN PHILA. This one is not marked and even under magnification it looks like it never was. I've ran into these unmarked pistols before. This one is still in very nice condition and works well. It's probably been cleaned at some point as there is no color left on the barrel. The frame retains over 90% or better of it's silver plate and is bright indicating cleaning at some point. The grips are original and still exhibit their original finish. The serial number is 3885 on this piece. There is rifling left in the barrel. $375.00 Item Weapons- 99

Originals that look like this would be worth many thousands of dollars today! This model is the 4 screw model, set up for a shoulder stock. It has an 8 inch barrel and the entire piece is just perfect!!! As new-unfired for $975.00 REDUCED TO $850.00 !!Item Weapons- 90

French Model 1822 Flintlock converted to percussion pistol.

TRADED!!!

Here is a French model 1822 single shot pistol that was converted using the Belgian method from flintlock to percussion. The pistol has been cleaned and is missing the ramrod. There is a 128 on the barrel tang and a belguim proofmark on the barrel. Other than that it seems to be devoid of markings. It appears that this may be a .69 caliber weapon. The weapon functions very well. There is a piece of wood that has been broken behind the hammer but has an old pinned repair to it and it's solid. All in all a very nice example of an early French pistol that may have made it over it for the Civil War. Everything was being imported into this country for the Civil War! $495.00 Item weapons 113

Here's a great dug 1840's Pepperbox! I wish I knew where it was dug but I do not. I also believe that the wooden grips were replaced at some point as they are a soft wood and not walnut. Also the reverse lock cover is missing and the grip was carved to fit in it's place! This gun was redone for use!. This one is in pretty good dug condition and still the bar hammer cocks when you pull the hammer! Sometimes the barrel will try to advance but not always. Heck, it could still be used even if the barrel hand to be hand advanced. Hard times!! I cannot find any markings on this piece that indicate a manufacturer but more than likely it's an Ethan Allen as it looks a lot like the Dragoon Size Norwich Pepperbox with the 1845 type action. This one has a 6 inch barrel while the entire piece is abut 9 1/4 inches long. The pistol exhibits a nice dark patina with scattered moderate pitting. The main spring is still strong. It may have layed in the dirt for awhile but only a few years. There seems to be one cylinder loaded as my to length dowel lacks about 5/8ths of an inch from going down the entire way. The bore is .36 caliber. There is pat. info on the bar hammer but I can't them out. I can see no other markings on this piece. The nipples are in great shape - not battered at all! Nipple shield is still in place. It's missing the trigger guard but all in all an excellent dug piece. It'll look great on your relic room wall! Take a look at the pics! This is a unique piece!!! $325.00 Item Weapons- 78

1837 CIVIL WAR IMPORT DANZIG MUSKET!

Here we have a huge 'Pumkin slinger' Danzig, German import musket, in .72 caliber. This is the Model 1809, converted from flintlock and are commonly called Potsdam muskets because most were made at the Potsdam arsenal although this one was made at the Danzig arsenal. This piece is in generally very good condition but is missing the hammer screw, one side plate screw, ramrod and the bayonet locking spring/lug is partially missing. One plus with this huge piece is that the sling swivels are still present which are usually missing as well. This piece is 56 1/2 inches long with a 41 1/4 inch smoothbore barrel. The rear sight is a simple block sight on the tang while the front sight is a blade sight incorporated into the front barrel band/strap. The barrel bands are brass as are the buttplate and triggerguard. There are numbers and letters stamped into the buttplate as well as the buttstock on the reverse side. 209 is stamped on both the buttplate and the barrel. The date of 1837 is also stamped on the lockplate and the barrel and another number of 7459 is stamped on the barrel and the number 59 is stamped on the remaining side plate screw. This stock is a beech wood stock has a cheek relief on the reverse buttstock. The stock is in dandy condition! The action works fine. The mainspring is strong and the nipple is vry good. Nice! These old muskets were deifinitely imported for US use and although no records exist for this piece in CS records some were undoubtedly picked up off the battlefield and used by the confederates. . $850.00 Item weapons 088

THE POTTSDAM MUSKET BELOW IS SOLD!!!

Here's another Model 1809 Potsdam musket and this one is marked Potsdam on the lock. I can see no dates. This one has been in the attic so there is minor to moderate pitting onver the entire iron surfaces. Found in central Indiana. The only things missing on this old musket are the sling swivels and the tang screw. The action works fine. The stock is in good condition but does have some minor age cracks to it and there is wood loss behind the nipple from firing which is normal. The nipple is still good and not battered. This one has an iron buttplate and brass bands. There is a simple block sight made intregal in the tang and a simple v sight that is cast into the brass front band. The original ramrod is present as well as the bayonet lock catch beneath the barrel. The stock is beech, being very nice, and has the cutout for the cheek on the reverse side. This is still a very nice piece and deserves a place of honor in a collection. These were imported into the US and were used for a couple of years early on until replaced by better rifled muskets. For this one---$850.00 Item weapons 087

Here's an unusual dug piece! This is a double barrel pinfire pistol in about 9 or 10MM and you can clearly see why this piece was abandoned! Many pistols of this type were used during the Civil War. This is a breech loader and about an inch of the reverse barrel at the cartridge pin has been blown away! No wonder the user threw it down! What's left measures about 6 1/2 inches long and still functions to a degree. The barrel catch works and the barrels open up at the hinge. The triggers do not work and one of the hammer springs is lacking. The entire wooden grip is missing as well. This piece came to me with no history what so ever so your guess is as good as mine. Still an excellent dug piece! Doesn't look like it layed in the ground for too long until it was recovered. Nice dug piece for a nice display!! $195.00. Item Weapons 100

This cavalry saber was one of 37,500 edged weapons produced for the U.S. Ordnance Department in seven Civil War contracts by Henry Mansfield and Estus Lamb of Forestdale, Rhode Island during the Civil Warar. This particular saber came from California but I have no solid history on how it got there. The slightly curved saber blade measures 35” long, has a width of 1 1/16” and a 27” long, wide fuller with a narrow fuller 18½” long. Blade features a light gray finish overall and exhibits a few edge nicks. Obverse riccasso is strongly marked “U.S. / J. M. (inspector- probably John Maggs who was in inspector in 1862) / 1864” while the reverse ricasso bears “MANSFIELD / & LAMB / FORESTDALE R.I.” Markings all contained within a large oval. Brass hilt, tight and strong, retains its original buff leather washer and a high domed pommel cap with inspector’s marks “J. M. The blade retains a nice luster with sharp markings on the ricasso's. There are just a couple of very minor nicks that you can feel on the edge and this sword has not been sharpened. The original leather grip is present with all the original twisted brass wire. The brass handguard and pommel has a nice mellow patina to it. The scabbard is very nice with only a couple of very shallow dents along it's length. The drag is worn from dragging. The scabbard has a nice dark patina to it. This is one outstanding Cavalry Saber and scabbard!! $1,150.00 Item Weapons 90

Here is a nice Civil War New York marked spear point side knife made by ALEXANDER of SHEFFIELD and so marked. The knife is a total of 10 1/4 inches long with a nice 6 1/2 inch long blade with full tang. The blade is marked very nicely with the makers name and location as well as a nice Union Shield between the N & Y standing for New York. There is a false edge on the top of the blade that extends backwards nearly 4 inches. The blade looks to have been sharpened at one time but not seriously. The grip is stag with a presentation plate that is unmarked. There are a couple of small cracks radiating outward from the brass pins but not serious at all. The knife does not have a crossguard and I believe it never did have one. Sadly there is no sheath. For this great piece $325.00

Here we have a Model 1863 Rifle Musket, Type II by Springfield and so marked also with the Eagle and the date 1864. This one is an old war horse ! It has seen much use and shows it! The stock has been broken at the wrist and has a period repair to it. Heck, they didn't though it away because they needed it! The action does not work as it doesn't hold on cock any more and still it wasn't thrown away. The hammer screw is a replacement but everything else is period except the ramrod which looks to be from a model 1816 musket. The barrel is still the original 40 inches long and the bore is dark and pitted with visible rifling still there. The rear and front sights are present. The nipple is still there but battered. It's also missing the rear sling at the trigger guard. There is a large 'W' carved into the buttstock. I cannot see any cartouches. If you want a rifle that was there then this is for you! For this old piece $625.00

Here we have an old H.J. Sterling double barrel shotgun in 12 guage . The book American Gunsmiths says that this name was the trade name used by H. & D. Folsom on shotguns imported for Hibbard, Spencer & Bartlett. These shotguns are Belgian made. It's a nice old shotgun with a lot 71XX serial number and was made in the late 1800's. The serial number is stamped on the usual places as wel as on the underneath barrel rib which is quite unusual. There are many proof marks on the underneath side of the damascus barrels including the ELG* under the crown, which is Belgian. The hammers are very similar to the Model 1889 Remington hammers. The locks work well with tight springs and the hammers match. The lockplates are engraved and on the reverse side is stamped H. J. STERLING while on the other lockplate is stamped MACHINE MADE. The walnut stock is in good condition and has some excellent carving and checkering on it and the fore end as well. The carvings are very well done. Also there is a Silver presentation shield on the pistol grip but no presentation is present. The barrels lock up fairly tight to the receiver but I still would not shoot it due to the damascus barrels. The barrels exhibit a nice dark patina and there is some rust present that you can see in the pics. I did not remove the rust for fear of damaging the natural patina of the piece. That color took over 100 years to achieve! The 30 inch barrels show some pitting inside but would still clean up nicely. The trigger bow needs to be reattached in the front by brazing or soldering. This old shotgun would look great over the fireplace!!! $350.00

I just got this half stock rifle from a friend of mine. This firearm is circa 1860’s-70’s being a Plains type rifle marked “C. Siebert – Columbus O.” on the top of the barrel. There are other markings on the side of the reverse barrel that I just can’t make out being partially obstructed by the stock. I have not taken the stock off to look at them. From what I can see it may ?? S. Siegfried and if it was he is listed as a barrel maker but location unknown. Christian Siebert was born in 1822 and died in 1886 in Columbus, Ohio. He was from a very famous gun making family. He was known for his fine sporting rifles. We believe that this rifle is known as a “Plains Rifle” rather than a target rifle because it does not have double set triggers. This rifle has a 33 inch octagonal steel barrel in 38 caliber. The entire piece from muzzle to buttplate is 49 inches. There is a rib under the barrel which the ramrod tubes are attached to with one tube lacking. The ramrod is not original to this piece. The sights are fairly common being a simple blade sight up front attached to a dovetailed piece and a simple buckhorn sight in the rear. The tang seems to be a replacement as it has some void around it. The stock is in generally good condition with a brass nose piece. The buttplate is also brass. There is a fairly high polish to the stock so it may have been coated in something at some point but it looks great. The triggerguard is iron and looks military to me. The hammer may be a replacement as it does not have the peppering that the rest of the piece has. I can see no markings on the lock, it functions very well. The drum and nipple have moved slightly forward. All in all a great piece! For this rifle $375.00

Here's another of his rifles being a rebuilt CVA percussion rifle that I believe is .45 caliber. As soon as I can find my guage I will know for sure and will list it. This one is a half stock and is 49 inches long overall with a 32 3/4 inch long octagon rifled defarbed barrel in the white. There are no markings on this barrel that I can find except for a partial serial number on the side of the barrel. The brass sideplate is not inletted in but the brass triggerguard is. Also the brass patch box is inletted. The patch box and the brass butt plate have a real good fit into this stock. The action works fine and it utilizies a set trigger setup which works fine. As with the rifle above there is some channel gaps and an off center screw on the tang but it still looks good and functions good. There seems to be no damage to the stock and it looks good. There are two small drill holes in the bottom of the stock but I have no idea why they are there. It's a nice looking outfit and it works well. For this piece $250.00

Here we have a Belgium Browning Semi-Automatic rifle in .270 only. 1968 Browning Catalog Cover. This is the issue introducing the sporting version of the new Browning BAR designed by Bruce Browning, the son of Val Browning. The BAR Sporting Version -- Interesting Facts. The Browning BAR sporting version is certainly a distinct and separate rifle from the military BAR M1918, but its design is the result of Browning's unmatched understanding and expertise with automatic rifles that started with John M. Browning. His grandson, Bruce Browning, was the driving force behind today's BAR. A large team of automatic firearms experts at the FN factory in Belgium also played a key role in its development. This group of FN automatic rifle designers, lead by Marcel Olinger, began serious work on the project code named "Carbine 66," with full-scale development and testing done throughout 1966 in preparation for an official 1967 product launch. The original prototypes had the distinctive scalloped receiver, which all early BARs had. The trigger group assembly was reliable, but complex. The design required the disassembly of the buttstock from the receiver to remove the trigger group. BARs at that time came with your choice of a right or left handed safety, but they were not reversible. All calibers were built on a long action length receiver.

This particular Vintage firearm is the exact type showing on that Browning Catalog Cover from 1968 with the scroll work and the Pronghorn Antelope on the receiver. There is also scroll work on the magazine door and on the trigger guard. This firearm is the FN produced firearm and not the ones assembled in Portugal. This one is serial numbered 924XXM69 meaning that it was produced in 1969. The firearm is in excellent condition with very light wear to it. It’s been used but not abused. The 22 inch barrel but otherwise fine and the bore is excellent. The walnut wood is in very good condition and it has the original hard Browning butt plate present. There are a couple of very minor dings in the wood. The rear sight is a folding sight. I believe this firearm to be a Grade 2 Deluxe version that was made from 1967-1974. The receiver has been factory drilled and tapped but no scope was ever mounted to it. This firearm has the original Quick Draw sling on it that was placed on it when it was new. Nice Nice excellent firearm!!! $995.00

Bore is excellent.95% + overall condition. Almost looks new! Made from 1967 to 1984. Sterling appears to have been created just before the Gun Control Act of 1968 devastated two aspects of the firearms industry: importation of firearms and purchasing firearms through mail order. The market for US-made inexpensive handguns was wide open. The company started in 1967 in Buffalo, but some time around 1968 moved to nearby Lockport, NY. The first Sterling pistol that we know of is the Model 285, a High Standard knockoff. There were alot of these made but you don't find too many in this condition! Operates flawlessly!!!

Here we have a very nice COLT GOLD GUP NATIONAL MATCH MARK IV/SERIES '70 .45 caliber pistol in box. The National Match M1911 Pistols are hand fitted and tuned for the National Match competitions which began at Caldwell, NJ and became the Camp Perry match. Among their numbers are some of the most beautiful and accurate pistols ever built. There are two kinds: the “National Match” pistols which were built by government armorers for the Army Marksmanship Unit for the Camp Perry competition, and the Colt National Match pistols which were produced by Colt for the retail market. In 1957 Colt began to produce “Gold Cup National Match” pistols which they produced until 1970. There was then a “Series 70 Gold Cup National Match, produced between 1970 and 1983. This particular pistol is one that was produced during that time. The Hartford, Connecticut-based works of Mr. Samuel Colt is synonymous with some of the best, not to mention the most classic, of all 1911 model pistols. Perhaps the pinnacles of their efforts were the Gold Cup National Match MKIV 70 series of handguns.

The Gold Cup

When introduced in 1970 (hence the term ’70-series), the National Match MKIV Gold Cup pistol was the ultimate in .45ACP target pistols. After much feedback from the shooting community, Colt constructed this gun to be as complete as possible right out of the box. Remember, back then, there wasn’t fifty companies making IDPA/IPSC race guns made to order. Competitive shooting itself with large caliber military-grade pistols was in its infancy compared to what we know today. The gun had many features unheard of in a factory pistol. This included an adjustable trigger stop that limited finger movement so that the aim wasn’t skewed, grooves on the front of the receiver grip and wide super smooth, tuned trigger, and a special barrel and bushing (more on that later). The slide had a flared ejection port and a flat grooved top rib as well as angled (not strait as in GI 1911) rear serrations. The bluing on these guns is very deep and reflective, which was very different from military Parkerization. The thin beavertail on these guns is very different from comp 1911s today but was still handy and workable. Colt shipped these with an Accurizer barrel and bushing. This is what set the whole series apart from what came before it. Series 70 guns are a unique evolutionary development in the saga of the 1911. They are different from every Colt .45 that came before it. While looking at it, everything looks the same on the outside; the insides are a little different. These guns had an altered barrel bushing that had a ‘collet’ bushing with a series of rings to keep contact with the barrel. This made the gun more accurate and alleviated the change to the gun’s firing pin safety block (or lack thereof). Some of the best production guns on the market and could be considered one of the first practical/tactical pistols that came direct from the factory.

This particular pistol is in very good condition rating about 85% as it was used but not alot and the bore is excellent! There are a couple of minor spots from being left in the styrofoam insert in the box but not too bad at all. The action works well and it feels good in the hand. The pistol has the original wooden grips with it but has the after market Bianchi grips on it now. Also comes with the Owners manual and the two tools and the original box that is serial numbered to the pistol. A wonderful .45 Caliber Pistol!!! This is a very nice piece! Check out the pics!!! $1195.00

Here we have a vintage Smith & Wesson topbreak revolver in .38 caliber . This is the double action 4th Model and approximately 326,300 were manufactured between1895-1909 with the serial number range being between 322,701 through 539,000. The serial number on this one is 3405xx indicating that this one was made before 1898 so thusly, is an antique except in California where the rules are crazy. This one works perfectly and still has a lot of original blue to it, probably 50% or so and the rest is a nice dark patinal. The markings are all clear and crisp and the original hard rubber grips are in excellent unbroken or uncracked condition with the S&W monogram on them. The S&W monogram is also stamped into the frame as it should be. The 3 1/4 inch barrel has an excellent bore! All in all for this year this is a very good plus condition example of an early Smith and Wesson topbreak. For this piece $395.00

Modern arrivals 7 SOLD!!!

Here we have a nice Savage Model 1917 Pistol! This is essentially a Savage Model 1907 which is a semi-automatic pocket pistol produced by the Savage Arms Company of Utica, New York. This pistol is in .32 ACP. Although smaller in size, it is derived from the .45 semi-automatic pistol Savage submitted to the 1906-1911 US Army trials to choose a new semi-automatic sidearm. After several years of testing the Savage pistol was one of two finalists but ultimately lost to the Colt entry, which became famous as the Colt Model 1911. 181 of these .45 ACP pistols were returned to Savage after the testing and sold on the civilian market. The Model 1907 is often erroneously called a Model 1905 because of the date Nov. 21, 1905 date stamped into the top of the slide on all Savage semi-automatic pistols. This is the date Elbert Searle was awarded one of his firearm patents, which were the design basis for all the Savage semi-automatic pistols. Advertised with the slogan "Ten shots quick!", the Model 1907 was very popular because, despite its small size, it had a 10-round double-stack magazine. The advertising included a number of early celebrity endorsers, including William "Buffalo Bill" Cody, Bat Masterson, and the Pinkerton Agency. Teddy Roosevelt was even presented with a Model 1907. Much of the advertising in the popular press played on the ability of an otherwise defenseless woman to use the Savage to subdue burglars and "tramps." A safety lever is located on the left side of the pistol, at the upper rear of the grip. Though it appears to have an external hammer, it is actually a striker-fired gun; the "hammer" is actually a cocking lever. Model 1907s made from 1913 until 1917 had a collared barrel and a loaded chamber indicator, allowing the shooter to tell by touching the shell ejection port whether a cartridge was chambered. The Model 1907 uses no screws (even the grips snap into place) and is simple to strip. The grips were made from gutta-percha, though some early production examples had metal grips. In 1912 the Model 1907 underwent a major design revision modifying almost every major component. As with most semi-automatics, the pistol is readied for firing by pulling back and releasing the slide, which inserts a cartridge into the chamber and cocks the pistol. The recoil from firing a cartridge automatically extracts and ejects the empty shell, cocks the firing pin and loads another cartridge into the chamber, ready for firing. The Model 1917 is mechanically the same as and shares almost all of its parts with the final version of the Model 1907 (including a smaller, thinner cocking lever "hammer"), but with a significantly larger handle. Because this required larger grips, the Model 1917 uses one screw through each grip to hold them to the pistol frame as does this pistol. These grips are also hard rubber and one has a small chip on the bottom that is shown in one of the pics. This paricular fiream was manufactured from 1917 to 1928. This pistol is in very nice condition overall probably being polished out at one time as the finish is better than the worn rubber grips. I do not believe that this is a refinish. The action works well and everything appears to be as it should be. Overall I would rate it as very good. For this piece $375.00

Here is a real nice IMPORT Mauser Model 1914. The Model 1914 is a very similar to the Model 1910 but the caliber is 7.65 caliber (.32 ACP). Also, the overall size of the gun is slightly larger than the small .25 cal 1910, mostly to accommodate it’s larger caliber. The grips are not as straight backed as the 1910, they have a slight curvature to them. (not as much curvature as the model 1934). Grips can be black plastic (“Franzite”), hard rubber or checkered wood wrap around grip. This one has the checkered wood wrap around grip. It has a 3 inch barrel with excellent bore and an 8 round magazine and was made from 1914-1934.

This particular weapon was produced between the wars as it is marked GERMANY. The German guns were not marked GERMANY unless they were be sold commercially outside of the country. After WW1 ended and before WW2 started Mauser sold these pistols commercially around the world to keep the factory working as their economy was in shambles! Serial numbers from 40,000 to 180,00 will be seen with German military acceptance stamps. This one is well higher than that at 3405XX Nice pistol! $550.00 REDUCED BY THE OWNER TO $400.00 !!

Here is a WW2 Smith and Wesson 38/200 British Service Revolver (S&W Caliber) - There were over 571,629 of these models produced between October 1941 and May 1945 for the British Common wealth countries. These countries include the Union of South Africa (21,347), Canada (45,328), and Australia (8,000). The remaining 384,100 shipped between 1941 and the end of World War II were supplied by the U.S. Army Ordnance through the lend lease program to Britain for distribution. This revolver is one made before making the Victory Models with the prefix ‘V’ before the serial number. The ‘V’ Prefix was used early in 1942 starting with V-1 and ending in August 1945 with VX811119. This revolver had a new cylinder that was rechambered after WW1 from 5 rounds originally to 6 rounds. Also, this revolver has the checkered walnut grips with the silver S&W medallion that was used until January 1942 after which only smooth walnut grips were made. This revolver is marked Smith and Wesson on the reverse side of the barrel and 38 S&W CTG on the obverse side of the barrel. The frame is marked MADE IN U.S.A. and the side cover has the Smith and Wesson logo on it. That side cover is a dull finish while the rest of the revolver is a higher gloss black finish. I don’t believe that this revolver was used much as the bore is in excellent condition and most of the original finish is on this piece. The action works fine and there’s a lot of case color on the trigger and the hammer. The original lanyard ring is present as well. There are proof marks on this revolver but the most interesting is where the original English markings of the Crown and Broad Arrow have been overstamped the Austrian Police designation. This .38/200 British Service Model Revolver "Lend Lease" pistol remained in service after the end of the war and was issued by the Allied Occupation Forces (USFA) to the Austrian Police. Interesting history! This is a fine condition pistol of mixed heritage! For this piece $850.00 REDUCED BY THE OWNER TO $550.00

Here is the second ’94 Winchester and it’s in pretty good condition as well. There are a couple of spots of corrosion on the receiver that probably happened while being used outside and getting a couple of spots of rust. Heck, cowboys carried these in the rain, dust storms, drought and whatever so it’s not unusual to have some finish problems, otherwise most bluing is still here. This carbine is in 32 W.S and the bore is also sweet on this one. This carbine functions as it should and will be a great shooter for you. The markings are clear and sharp and ‘PROOF STEEL’ is also on the barrel of this one. This carbine was made in 1949. The stocks are in great condition with a ding here and there but no breaks or cracks that I can see. This one has had a nylon strap and plastic swivels put on it at some point but I believe this to have been put on after 1969 as I don't think that this kind of nylon strap or plastic swivels were available then. We’re not really sure when that happened. Also there is a rubber butt pad on this one as well. For this nice carbine $795.00 REDUCED BY THE OWNER TO $525.00 !!!

Here we have a Remington No. 4 - .22 caliber rolling block sporting rifle. When the 1890’s began, the Remington rolling block was the last of the pioneer single shot rifles still being produced but there was still enough market for it to persuade Remington to bring out a new model, thus, the No. 4 Rifle was born! The .22 caliber rim fire model was the most popular and most economical to shoot! This is the takedown model which wasn’t made by Remington until after 1900 and was used until the end of No. 4 production in 1935. Around 1910 the lever type lock was replaced with a simpler round headed screw system so this particular rifle was made before 1910. This rifle is 38 ½ inches long overall with a standard 22 ½ inch hexagon barrel. This piece weighs about 4.3 pounds. This piece has seen a bit of use but was well loved and cared for. The rear sight is missing having slipped out of the mortise and the stock has a crack in it that has been shored up with a couple of single slot brass screws. This could easily be fixed if one was so inclined to do. The marking are all clear, nice and deep. The bore rates about good. The action is nice and crisp. 2132XX is the serial number. Everything is a nice dark patina. All in all still a nice example! A remington like this was my first rifle! Loved it but lost it in a house fire when I was young. For this example $295.00 FFL or C&R

This here is a very nice Stevens 44-SHOT smoothbore in excellent condition. The bluing is nearly perfect on the 26 inch round barrel and loading lever and the wood is very nice indeed. The receiver has a pretty bronze type color cast to it. This piece looks so good that it may be a restored piece. The only flaws that I see are an age crack on the obverse buttstock where it meets the receiver and some minor 'frosting' inside the bore. The action is real smooth and the screws are not all burgered up. The walnut stocks are real pretty. The markings on the receiver are real clear as is the 44-SHOT on the barrel. This piece locks up tight with no wobble whatsoever. This is one of the prettiest Stevens 44-SHOT's that I have ever seen. This firearm is chambered for the .44-40 shot cartridge, although ball cartridges could also be used. The gun is a single shot tip up action and the lever on the bottom opens the breech and also serves as the trigger guard. These guns were made from 1914 to 1920. The 44 shot was mainly used in America, while the .410 (12mm) was used in Europe. Eventually the .410 caught on and the .44 shot fell into disuse according to the info that I found at this web address http://jefenry.com/main/The44-Shot.php . Looks like it would be easy to manufacture your own ammo for this piece! The 44-SHOT used paper or brass cartridges. $395.00

Here is a very nice Old Model Single Action Pre-Transfer bar 6 shot Ruger Single Six Revolver in .22 caliber. This one is the more coveted 3 screw model. This model is patterned after the Colt Single Action Army Revolver. This revolver has the 5 1/2 inch barrel which has a very nice bore. The action works as it should and is crisp. There is some finsih wear to the end of the barrel and ejector rod assembly for going in and out of a holster. This revolver saw use but not that much in my estimation.

BOTH KNIVES ARE SOLD!!

This is fantastic! Here we have two Limited Edition Browning Fixed Blade Knifes with each being One of One Thousand of different types but having the same serial numbers!!! Impossible to find! They are also in their original shipping containers!

This first one is The Browning Damascus Classic Fighter being a Limited Edition 1 of 1000 being custom designed. The blade is made by using the 1000 year old tradition of Damascus Knife and Sword Making. Only using the finest bars of pure nickel and high carbon stainless steel that are heated in the ancient tradition over pine tree charcoals until the metal reaches a read hot condition them removing the metal and being hammering it out lenghtwise and folding the metal over and over again to create the strength and one of a kind blade with over 200 layers pattern of the damascus blade. No two blades are alike. The knife has a beautiful exotic cocobolo wood handle with polished nickel silver pins and double guard bolster and comes with it's own beautiful walnut padded display case. The side of the bolster is engraved #0959 with BROWNING JAPAN on the ricasso. This is an extremely high quality fixed blade knife that has never been carried or used. The blade has never been sharpened and is in new condition. This knife is 7 1/2 inches long with a 3 1/2 inch long blade. The Handle with cross guard is 4 inches long and has a laynard hole at the butt. This knife is absolutely fantastic!!! Comes with the Browning accompaning info sheet.

The second knife is the Browning Double-edged Damascus Hunter with shipping carton and beautiful Walnut display box. Browning Double-edged Damascus Hunter with cocobolo wood handle is mint in the box and came out in 1985 being Designed by Gil Hibben. Overall length 7-3/4". The Serial number is 0959/1000. Comes in a fine walnut wood box. No sheath and the knife did not come with a sheath in the beginning. Designed by the acclaimed USA knife maker Gil Hibben and forged by the master sword makers of Seki City, Japan. The original rice paper brochure is included with the knife. Here is what the brochure says:

Damascus knife and the sword making is a tradition that has endured in Japan for over 1000 years. Japan's feudal history, often shrouded in conflict, demanded the making of blades that possessed qualities of exceptional strength and beauty. Today's Japanese Damascus knife makers continue to blend their art, religion and culture into a unique knife making process that is expressed exquisitely in each blade that leaves their anvil. Master sword maker Makoto Takaba selects only the finest bars of pure nickel and high carbon stainless steel for the blades. In ancient tradition, the fire is stoked with pine tree charcoal. Again and again the red hot metal is taken from the fire, hammered out lengthwise, folded over and reheated. A core layer of high carbon stainless steel is then forged into the center of the blade for the cutting edge. In a practice common only to the Japanese knife making the nearly finished blade is drilled or beveled, then pounded flat again, creating elegant, contoured patterns. Freehand grinding, followed by dipping in acid completes the traditional process. The blade has a full tang which extends through an exotic cocobolo wood handle. The hilt, end cap and spacers embellishing the handle are all polished nickel silver. The entire knife itself is 7-3/4 inches long. The Damascus blade itself is 3-3/4 inches long and consists of over 200 separate layers. And, like a fingerprint, no two blades look exactly alike. Designed by the acclaimed American knife maker Gil Hibben, and forged by the master sword makers of Seki City, Japan, the Browning Double-edged Damascus Hunter is truly an extraordinary knife, and destined to become a classic.

Since these knifes are both Browning and with matching serial numbers we would like to keep them together. For the pair $1,650.00 Check out the pics!!!

I am listing this as modern as it was made in the fairly recent past. This is a Thompson Center .50 caliber percussion rifle and is quite massive. This rifle looks to have been kit built. The owner built several custom made percussion rifles but on the ones he would have used for hunting he used a more durable type of firearm that he wouldn't have minded to 'scratch'. Having said that I don't believe that this rifle has been used much at all. The wood is in great consition with no wear and the barrel doesn't look to have much wear to it at all either. The lock and hammer still have practically all of the case hardening left on them. This is a two trigger -set trigger- set up and the action works perfectly. This rifle has a steel buttplate with brass triggerguard. There is not a nosecap and looks like there never was. The rifle is 42 1/2 inches long with a 27 inch octagonal rifled barrel that looks to have been a subtle finish applied to it. This rifle should make a good Deer hunter in the fall. The rear sight is a more modern sight being adjustagle with the front sight is the typical blade sight. No cheekpiece on this one. Take a look at the pics!

I am listing this as modern as it was made in the fairly recent past. This is a Connecticut Valley Arms "Hawken Type" percussion rifle that looks to have been a kit build. The owner built several custom made percussion rifles but on the ones he would have used for hunting he used a more durable type of firearm that he wouldn't have minded to 'scratch'. That being said I don't believe that this one was used much. It is a .50 caliber weapon with a heavy rifled octagon barrel. The entire piece measures 44 inches long with a 28 inch barrl. The rifle looks pretty good but I am sure it was made years ago. There is some 'burning' off of the color at the nipple and a few scratches on the barrel from use. This one is a set trigger model and it works perfectly. The stock looks great with no cracks or scratches and does have a patchbox and a cheekpiece on the reverse. The rear sight is a more modern sight while the front sight is a large blade sight. The triggerguard is brass and so is the nose cap, ramrod thimbles and barrel lock escutcheons. It's a nice piece and ready for deer hunting in the fall. For this one $265.00 REDUCED TO $225.00 !!

This is a .22 long caliber Stevens CRACKSHOT and has a 20 inch round barrel. I believe this one to be the 26 1/2 smoothbore version of the No. 26. The bore is dark but I see no traces of rifling in it. The stocks are in good condition but it is missing the buttplate. Take a look at the pics!

1. SOLD!!! Here is a model 1897 Marin "97" .22 caliber rifle with the serial number of 285506 indicating manufacture in 1903. The firearm looks very good but the action does not work. I was able to get the lever to come down and open the breech a couple of times but it was stiff but I have't been able to get it open today after messing with it for awhile. There might be something stuck in it or a loose part I just don't know and I do not have time to work on it so my loss could very easy be your gain. I cannot check the bore for condition as I cannot get the breech open at this time but I suspect that it is dark. If you look at the pics you will see that this piece is complete with worn lettering but still mostly legible on the tang and the 24 inch octagonal barrel . The walnut stocks are in pretty good condition for their age with the color of the stock and the metal being a nice dark patina. Looks great on the wall!!!

Here we have a beautiful Colt Single Action Army Revolver made in 1902. This one is in .32/20 caliber with a 5 1/2 inch barrel. The finish is blue and just excellent with just a few minor flaws. The owner believes that this is one of the revolvers that was blued in the Philippines. I am still researching this info as I have found nothing on the subject. It's a mirror finish blue and just gorgeous! We have the original Colt Archive Letter with seal and it states that the type of stocks (grips) was not listed. I do not know for sure what these grips are made of but they are a beautiful orange/apricot color and finger molded to fit a right handed shooter. There are some gaps at the front of the grips so I don't know if they shrank over time or just were ill fitting from the start. It looks like the cylinder was never turned as there are no cylinder turning marks. It has a zip tie on it and we'll just leave it there and not turn it ourselves. None of the screws have been tampered with and they are all just beautiful! The Colt markings on top of the barrel appear to have Gold fill in some of them. The frame shows original case colors and it is just beautiful as well! This revolver came from a defunct Montana Museum in 1969 and has been with the current owner ever since. According to the Colt Archive records this revolver was shipped on November 26, 1902, along with 18 other guns, to Simmons Hardware Company in St. Louis, Missouri. It would be hard to find another revolver like this one. Comes in a display case. For this fine piece the consignor wants $15,000.00 Reduced to $12,500.00

Here we have a Sharps New Model 1863 Civil War Carbine!

The most famous, single-shot, percussion firearm used during the Civil War was the Sharps carbine, a .52 caliber, breechloading firearm invented and patented by Hartford, Connecticut native Christian Sharps. Presented here is a very good specimen of the New Model 1863 Sharp’s carbine that features serial # 49799. I did not find this particular serial number listed on line but I did find one with the serial number of # 49797 that was issued to Company H of the 1st NY Cavalry. This Carbine has a 21½” long round barrel and a ‘straight-breech’ type lockplate fitted to its walnut stock and forend. Barrel address is worn but still readable with“SHARPS RIFLE / MANUFG CO. / HARTFORD, CONN” in front of rear sight. “NEW MODEL 1863” stamped to rear of sight. Stock and forend appear never to have been cleaned but may have been lightly coated. I cannot see the inspector cartouches at the sling bar area so probably worn off . The stock has dings and gouges from use and a crack or two but no breaks. The reverse lock has the patent date on it but partially worn. The obverse lock markings of "C SHARPS PAT OCT. 5TH, 1852" is strong. Lock screws are original and in good condition. Metal surface of the carbine appear a mottled gray as does the butt plate with some darker patina, especially on the buttplate which has been cut for the patchbox which is normal but there was no patchbox on this carbine which also was normal. No trace of original colors present. Maker markings and patent designations are mostly clear. Serial number sharp and strongly stamped unto the upper plate tang. Breechblock operating lever mechanics are crisp. Iron bar tight and has its iron ring. Bore with its six-groove rifling is somewhat bright with moderate pitting.

Here we have a georgous Colt Single Action Army that has been engraved. This one is known as the The 'Colt Frontier Six Shooter' and that is roll stamped on the barrel. The Colt Frontier or Frontier Six-Shooter was a Colt's 1873 "Model P" type revolver, manufactured in .44-40 Winchester caliber instead of .45 Colt (in which configuration it was called the Single Action Army), so as to be compatible with Winchester Model 73 ammunition. Production began in 1877. Colt Frontier Six-Shooter was the actual name of the Colt pistol model, and this was acid-etched on the left side of the barrel. After 1889, the legend was roll-stamped until 1919, when the caliber designation ".44-40" was added. Later Colt 1878 Double Action Army Models also wore this designation on the barrel when chambered in 44 WCF/44-40 Winchester. The Bisley 1895 Model was the final Colt to wear the Frontier Six Shooter designation.

We have a Colt Letter for this one. The serial number is 1497XX and according to the Colt Archives Letter this revolver was produced in 1893 having been shipped to Simmons Hardware Company in St. Louis, Missouri on September 29th, 1893. Simmons Hardware is famous itself. It was in caliber .44-40 with a barrel length of 4 3/4 inches and the finish was blue. This particular revolver has been customized and is quite different now.

This particular Colt has been nickel plated, after being blued, with professional engraving done on it. The engraver is listed as Robert Burr but I haven't been able to turn up anything on Mr. Burr on an internet search. Also we thought that the engravers tool that is included with the firearm as well as the sharpening guide belonged to Mr. Burr but under magnification the initials on the tool are CCH.

I do believe that the engraving was done some time ago as the cylinder is a trifle frosty from age now. Also, the serial numbers are a tiny bit light on the butt from buffing the original bluing off and nickel plating it. The barrel length was originally listed as 4 3/4 inches but the barrel now is 7 1/2 inches indicating that it has been changed out. Also, now this fine revolver has beautiful checkered custom walnut stocks which are in fantastic condition! This SAA functions flawlessly and looks just great!

The revolver is housed in a custom box that fits it perfectly and I have no doubt that it was made for this particular revolver. The lid had been changed probably due to breaking off at some point. All in all this revolver is just gorgeous!!! One of a kind! $20,000.00 OWNER HAS REDUCED THE PRICE TO $15,000 !!

Here we have a beautiful Colt Single Action Army Revolver made in 1902. This one is in .32/20 caliber with a 5 1/2 inch barrel. The finish is blue and just excellent with just a few minor flaws. The owner believes that this is one of the revolvers that was blued in the Philippines. I am still researching this info as I have found nothing on the subject. It's a mirror finish blue and just gorgeous! We have the original Colt Archive Letter with seal and it states that the type of stocks (grips) was not listed. I do not know for sure what these grips are made of but they are a beautiful orange/apricot color and finger molded to fit a right handed shooter. There are some gaps at the front of the grips so I don't know if they shrank over time or just were ill fitting from the start. It looks like the cylinder was never turned as there are no cylinder turning marks. It has a zip tie on it and we'll just leave it there and not turn it ourselves. None of the screws have been tampered with and they are all just beautiful! The Colt markings on top of the barrel appear to have Gold fill in some of them. The frame shows original case colors and it is just beautiful as well! This revolver came from a defunct Montana Museum in 1969 and has been with the current owner ever since. According to the Colt Archive records this revolver was shipped on November 26, 1902, along with 18 other guns, to Simmons Hardware Company in St. Louis, Missouri. It would be hard to find another revolver like this one. Comes in a display case. For this fine piece the consignor wants $15,000.00 Reduced to $12,500.00

Here we have a beautiful target/parlor rifle in the tradition of the Scheutzen Rifle! This type of rifle is called “ZIMMERSTUTZEN” which Refers to a single shot target rifle in rimfire caliber usually used indoors on a 50 foot range. Most Zimmerstutzens were either manufactured in Germany or Austria pre-WWII. The Zimmerstutzen was the ancestor of the ten meter target rifle, and its German history dates back to at least 1840. The rough English translation of the word is "Parlor Rifle." The most common Zimmerstutzen caliber is 4mm, but there have been over 25 calibers noted that range from 4mm to 5.55mm. (this rifle is 5.55mm, or .22 caliber). Both fixed (standard rimfire cartridge as this one is) and separate (percussion cap and separate lead ball) ammunition have been used during the course of its manufacture. This Zimmerstutzen was built to fire a fixed round that looks like a tiny BB cap, kind of like an American CB .22 cap. The fixed round -- where both case and ball are one piece -- is considered ammunition by BATF; and the guns that use it are, therefore, considered to be firearms in the US.

This particular rifle is in excellent condition and looks absolutely beautiful! It’s a very heavy piece and very ornate. The buttplate is in the tradition of the Schutzen rifle as well as the buttstock with it’s cheek rests and thumb rest. Beautiful checkering remains on the buttstock. There is a ding here and there from use but not bad at all. The action is a drop block where the block drops straight down when the loading lever is pushed downward. The bore of the cartridge that this rifle uses extends as a sleeve up the barrel for about 10 inches or so and is rifled in excellent mirror finish. The rest of the hex barrel is not used for the firing of this firearm. This target rifle has a set trigger and when it’s set the main trigger is a hair trigger. Case colors still are present on the receiver and on the hammer block. The rear sight is a very nice large dish peep sight and there is only a simple small post sight up front between slanted uprights. The barrel is in the brown as it should be and is marked GEORG PFLAUMER (Maker, as we have seen other firearms with this name on it) on one side and NEUSTADT A/AISCH (Town in Germany) on the other side. Very nice piece! Look at the pics! $2495.00 REDUCED BY THE OWNER TO $1550.00 !!!

Here we have a Sharps New Model 1863 Civil War Carbine!

The most famous, single-shot, percussion firearm used during the Civil War was the Sharps carbine, a .52 caliber, breechloading firearm invented and patented by Hartford, Connecticut native Christian Sharps. Presented here is a very good specimen of the New Model 1863 Sharp’s carbine that features serial # 49799. I did not find this particular serial number listed on line but I did find one with the serial number of # 49797 that was issued to Company H of the 1st NY Cavalry. This Carbine has a 21½” long round barrel and a ‘straight-breech’ type lockplate fitted to its walnut stock and forend. Barrel address is worn but still readable with“SHARPS RIFLE / MANUFG CO. / HARTFORD, CONN” in front of rear sight. “NEW MODEL 1863” stamped to rear of sight. Stock and forend appear never to have been cleaned but may have been lightly coated. I cannot see the inspector cartouches at the sling bar area so probably worn off . The stock has dings and gouges from use and a crack or two but no breaks. The reverse lock has the patent date on it but partially worn. The obverse lock markings of "C SHARPS PAT OCT. 5TH, 1852" is strong. Lock screws are original and in good condition. Metal surface of the carbine appear a mottled gray as does the butt plate with some darker patina, especially on the buttplate which has been cut for the patchbox which is normal but there was no patchbox on this carbine which also was normal. No trace of original colors present. Maker markings and patent designations are mostly clear. Serial number sharp and strongly stamped unto the upper plate tang. Breechblock operating lever mechanics are crisp. Iron bar tight and has its iron ring. Bore with its six-groove rifling is somewhat bright with moderate pitting. There is the initials WT carved into the stock and more research is taking place. There are 8 possibilities for these initials if this carbine belonged to a member of the 1st New York Cavalry. I have the list thanks go a good friend of mine Take a look at the pics! $2750.00 REDUCED BY THE OWNER TO $2250.00 !!!

Here we have an antique 12 gauge double barrel shotgun marked W. Richards on the back action locks. W. Richards was a trade name used on shotguns manufactured by Henri Pieper of Liège, Belgium and imported by large sporting goods distributors such as H. & D. Folsom Arms Company in the period 1860-1898. This one has on the under barrels the ELG over a star in an oval indicating that it was made in Belgium prior to 1898 and it used black powder shells of either brass or paper. Both firing pins are present and in good condition. This particular shotgun is in very nice condition for it's age and is an underlever shotgun meaning a lever comes out to the side to break it open for loading and unloading. This shotgun is 46 3/4 inches long with a 30 inch set of 12 gauge barrels that are most likely full choke with a couple of very very minor dents. The top of the barrels on the center rib is marked CAST STEEL. The bores are in generally good condition but could use a good scrubbing. The locks are back action locks with strong springs. The hammers match and the left hammer is slightly harder to pull back because of a tight spring indicating a right handed user who used the right barrel more than the left which is normal. Take a look at the pic of the lock marking so see how clear they are. The walnut stock is in generally good condition as well with an age crack near the top of the left or reverse lock but it's not deep and doesn't go very far. There is a chip here and there out of the stock but not bad at all. The butt stock terminates with the correct steel butt plate. The trigger guard is also steel and in good condition except that it has a modern screw replacement at the distal end. There is no wobble or shake to this shotgun. All in all a good example of a late 19th century Double Barrel Shotgun. No need for transfer on this one. It's an antique. For this one $225.00

Here we have a Model 1858 Remington .44 caliber revolver in good condition, much like the one above and I did get them together from a collection in Michigan. This one is also very dark and has no markings or serial number that I can make out on the barrel. There are traces of a serial number on the underside of the barrel and on the left hand grip frame but I cannot see enough to come to a conclusion on what the number might be. Perhaps you can but I cannot. The hand and spring does not advance this cylinder either. The cylinder is in pretty good condition otherwise and the nipples are unclogged. The clinder pin does come out and the cylinder can be removed. The revolver has the overall minor to moderate pitting but not that bad at all and it's the same all over. The grips are replacement grips but have age and character to them so I believe them to be older. Not sure when they were replaced but sure it was a long time ago. I also think that the trigger was replaced as it looks very good and is not in the same condition as the rest of this piece. The trigger works and has a terrific spring. All in all this is still an outstanding relic of the American Civil War and reeks with character! Sorry, but no story on this one either. For this one $395.00

We just picked up two fine old Civil War revolves that are either early pick up pieces or barn finds. Unfortunately no history accompanies them.

THE COLT ARMY BELOW IS SOLD!!!

First we have a Model 1860 Colt Army in .44 caliber. This gun is in the brown and does have some minor to early moderate pitting on the piece but the rust is inactive. The main spring is broken and the hand and spring are broken so it only rotates as it should if you hold it down. The markings are most gone on the barrel but you can still see traces of them there. You can also see lightly COLT PATENT on the frame as it should be. The serial number is 93335 making this piece made in 1863. Also the serial number on this revolver falls between two known examples that was issued to Co. A LOUDOUN COUNTY RANGERS which was the only US Cavalry unit that came from Virginia during the Civil War.. I wish I could prove that but that's as close as I can come. If I could definitely prove that this weapon would be worth a ton more money. This information comes from the Springfield Research Service tracing serial numbers of U.S. Martial Arms. The cylinder is in good shape however there is no cylinder scene remaining. The outside of the wedge has been either broke off or cut (I think cut) and the wedge screw is missing. The loading lever is present and I believe it was in the loading position when this firearm was either dropped or left as the patina matches when it's in that position but it shows no color when it is in the closed or stored position. The walnut grips are the original grips as you can see a cartouche on both sides. The bottom grip strap has a crack through were the buttstock would attach to it so it was most likely dropped. The screw heads have been messed with but I don't know if that was before or after it was recovered. The trigger is original and has a good spring. All in all it's an excellent relic and the frame is still tight to the barrel. Too bad there is not story accompaning it!!! For this piece $450.00

Here we have a very nice Model 1872 Cavalry Officer’s Saber. The Model 1872 Replaced the Model 1860 Cavalry Officer’s Saber and itself was replaced with the Model 1902 Saber. This shows how the Government and the Military put more emphasis in the firearm after 1872 and less on the saber. The Military also had the Model 1872 enlisted man’s cavalry saber but most enlisted men preferred the older Model 1860 Cavalry Saber as it was more substantial. This particular saber dates to the 1890’s for the following reasons. The ricasso, or the blade part next to the hand guard is marked with MADE IN FRANCE. This feature was not required until the 1890’s by the US Government. Also, the other side of the ricasso is marked RIDABOK AND COMPANY-NEW YORK and this company was not formed until the late 1880’s and of course this saber was replace in 1902 by another model. The saber itself is beautiful. It measures 39 ½ inches long overall with an extremely ornate mirror finish 33 inch blade. There is some rust staining and pitting on the blade past the etching. There is a panel on the blade for presentation but no name has been added. Take a look at the pics to see the ornateness of the blade! The grip is shark skin and hs the original twisted brass wire still present on it. The grip is in pretty nice shape just showing handling with no breaks, cracks or flaking. The brass handguard is also very ornate both front and back and knuckle bow as well. The pommel cap is also a nice brass piece with floral decorations and a Union Shield on the top . Very pretty! The scabbard is also very nice with a couple of minor dings in it but no door dings. The brass mountings are all in very nice condition with no missing screws. The body of the scabbard looks like it is, perhaps, silver plated with no loss of plating as it’s real shiny on the obverse and just a little duller on the reverse. All in all a real nice piece! For this saber. $395.00 Check out the pics!!!

We just acquired two Indian Wars era swords from a young couple that was remodeling their old house near Indianapolis and found them in the wall . I believe the original owner of the swords put them there to keep the kids from playing with them as there are several nicks on the guard to the Model 1860 Staff and Field Officers sword There are also a few, but not as many, nicks to the handguard of the model 1872 Cavalry Officer’s Saber as well.

The 1860 Staff & Field Officer’s Sword was more a symbol of rank than a viable weapon, and many field grade officers on campaign during the Civil War held onto the more battle-worthy 1850 Staff & Field Officer’s sword which was more substantial in size. Nonetheless, the Model 1860 endured. In 1872 it was adopted for all Army officers except medical officers, paymasters and mounted officers, the latter being equipped with the then new 1872 cavalry officer’s saber. This model sword was eventually replaced by the model 1902 Sword. The Model 1860 was used during the Civil War as evidenced by General Joseph Hooker wearing one in a photograph that I had witnessed, however those swords had an elliptical blade while the one offered here has a diamond shaped blade mounted to it making it post 1872. This one is the mid range one as far as use because, although it still has a fold down guard on the inside which the later ones did not have, this one does not have the spring loaded ball that would pop out enough to keep the guard open when dispatched. This one has a compression fitted adaptation to it to keep the guard from folding. Other than that and the fact that the blade is an elliptical blade it’s identical to the Civil War issued swords. This sword is almost 37 inches long in the scabbard with a 29 inch long ornately decorated blade. The blade is etched with the spread winged Eagle and US as well as a panoply of arms and other floral type etchings. There are a few very light nicks on the blade but barely perceivable to the touch. The Blade is tight with no wobble and I can see no makers marks on the ricasso. The very ornate guard, knuckle box and pommel are all a very nice uncleaned patina and beautiful! The sharkskin grip is in excellent condition but is missing the twisted brass wire. This is easily fixed if you so desire as you do not have to remove anything to rewrap it. The scabbard has the correct brass throat as well as the correct brass drag. The original suspension rings and mounts are present as well and in excellent condition with one screw missing to the double ring mount. The scabbard body has a freckled finish with most of the original nickel finish lacking but it’s quite pleasing to the eye. There are no door dents to the scabbard. The sword just glides in and out of it. Overall it’s a great piece and a great example of the post Civil War era. Take a look at the pics and see the ornateness of this sword!

Here we have a RARE ! Hard to find! Civil War Deringer offered by George D. H. Gillespie of New York City circa 1850's to 1860's. A like example can be found on page 104-105 in THE DERINGER IN AMERICA by R.L.Wilson and L.D. Eberhart. This particular little deringer is .41 caliber and is about 6 1/2 inches long with a 2 3/4 inch long barrel. The barrel is marked with GILLESPIE over WARRANTED followed by CAST STEEL with the tang of the barrel being engraved. The barrel is rifled. The lock is also marked with the GILLESPIE name and is engraved as well. The stock is missing a small sliver at the bottom of the forward lock but due to the smoothness of the walnut wood stock it has been missing an entremely long time. The hammer is correct and has a period brazed repair to it, probably also done during the period and done well. The nipple is a modern replacement and the hammer is missing a small piece of the shield that you can see in the pics. The lock is strong and works very well. There is a small german silver shield on the back of the handgrip that was never engraved. The pics can tell you more about this piece than I can. All in all it's in good condition and is scarce!!! Flayderman's Guide to Antique American Firearms was last printed in 2008 by the Great Norm Flayderman, now deceased, which listed this wonderful little deringer's value at from good at $800 to Fine at $1,750. This one is in very good condition due to the repairs but since this deringer is so hard to find it really doesn't matter. The metal parts of the deringer has been lightly cleaned but fortunately not overcleaned. For you Deringer collectors this is a plus find at a very good price. For this piece $950.00

Here we have a little Model 1849 Colt 6 shot revolver in .31 caliber. This Colt was made in 1861 and all numbers match. This one is unique because it has a steel backstrap which would be questionable except for the fact that it was number 2 of a 2 pistol cased set as witnessed by the number 2 stamped on the triggerguard. Sometimes guns from cased sets were given out to a man's son or relative to take along when they became soldiers during the Civil War. My uncle who was a corporal in the 55th Indiana took along a pistol for personal protection. Many soldiers took their own side arms with them. Speculation I know but it happened at a high rate as enlisted men were not issued handguns. At any rate this little Colt has a considerate amout of peppering and moderate pitting especially to the barrel which generally happened during poor storage or while being carried in a leather holster which holds moisture. You can see part of the stampings on the barrel which you can see in one of the pics. This little revolver is honest and totally complete and functions beautifully! You can see the serial number on the cylinder and some cylinder scene as well. Wish I knew who it belonged to! For this little war horse $595.00

Here we have a war torn brass Cavalry Bugle that looks like it came off the battlefield! This one was picked up off the Custer Battlefield after the battle! Oh how I wish that was true but it's not! We don't know where it came from for sure but it was made by George McFadden of Syracuse, NY. Not much is known about George McFadden. We first hear of him in Worcester Mass. in 1872, when he teamed up with Frederick Beaumont, a former employee of Isaac Fiske, to make copies of Fiske's instruments. They were out of business by 1875, at which time McFadden moved to Syracuse, New York, where he evidently continued making instruments. Instruments by McFadden are quite rare today so it is possible that this bugle could have been used by Custer when the 7th Cavalry was wiped out in June 25–26, 1876 when the Battle of the Little Big Horn occured but not likely. This bugle would, however, fit into a display of items that were used during the period. There is a piece missing where the mouthpiece would go in so there is a stick poked in there and there are many dents and a major breech on the bottom but this bugle exhibits a great patina! The entire piece measures about 11 1/2 inches long which is the right size for a Cavalry unit! For this piece $175.00

All attachments are present including the little hook attachment to attach the sword too. The 1851 Eagle plate is in nice condition but is missing the applied hook attachment.

Here we have a very nice quite exceptional display piece in custom box. This is a Model 1855 U.S. Springfield pistol/carbine.1855. The Model 1855 Pistol-Carbine was the last single-shot pistol produced as an issue arm for U.S. troops. Slightly more than 4,000 were manufactured at the U.S. Armory in Springfield, Massachusetts. They employed the same Maynard primer system and .58 caliber ammunition as that used in the U.S. Model 1855 Rifle-Musket. These convertible arms were intended for use as a pistol by cavalrymen, and when fitted with the detachable shoulder stock, they could be used as a carbine by dismounted troops.

The U.S. Model 1855 Pistol-carbine was the smallest in the new cal. .58 muzzle-loading service pieces adopted by the Army in 1855. These arms were designed to fire the newly-perfected (hollow-base) Minie bullet. The pistol-carbine had a 12" barrel and weighed 3 ? lbs., or five lbs. when fitted with its detachable buttstock. The lock assembly was about 9/10 the size of that used on Model 1855 long arms, and was designed to accept a 25-pellet Maynard tape primer roll, half the length of the primer tape used on the other Model 1855 arms. The Maynard tape priming lock was standard on the 4,021 Model 1855 pistol-carbines manufactured by Springfield Armory, the principal maker

The pistol in this display is all original and in pretty good condition. The wood has no cracks or breaks that I can see but does have one ‘punch’ mark in it behind the lock that you can see in the pics. Also there are indents from the shoulder stock on the butt. The pistol looks to have had been lightly cleaned at some point. The maynard tape primer door does not stay shut as it should. The inside tape primer does still seem to work. The lock has the Spread Winged Eagle on the maynard tape primer door with U.S.SPRINGFIELD ahead of the door and the date 1855 behind the hammer. The date 1855 is also on the barrel as well as the Eagle head and VP. There is a two leaf rear sight behind the date and a simple sight up front. The action works find and the nipple is not too battered. The brass furniture has a nice patina and the captured ramrod is in place. The butt stock is a reproduction while the pistol is total original. The little knob on the bottom of the spring loaded bolt to remove the buttstock is from another firearm and does not belong to this one. The leather strap is also a reproduction. All in all this is a fine display item! Inside the hardwood case which measures about 33” X 11” X 4 3/8” is a pretty nice original 1837 ‘Peace Flask’. The piece is not marked on the top as I would have expected but it does have the W.S. beside the Eagle on one side which is the inspector William Smith which would be on the 1837-1838 flasks by Ames. It’s also marked on the spout in drams. The spring is broken on the lever and a couple of seams are slightly open but all in all a nice flask with a nice mellow patina. The bullet mold is the wrong size diameter and also a repro. The round balls and the minie balls are reproductions as well. The cap tin is dated 1855 and 1858 by J. Goldmark’s Percussion Caps but was produced by Winchester Repeating Arms which did not start business until 1866 so they are here just for display. Also the caps are for a pistol and this firearm takes caps more like musket caps. This is a nice outfit and for the lot $1,950.00 !!!

Here we have a Civil War Derringer for sale. This is an English made firearm as evidenced by the proof marks on the barrel but with the lock marked 'DERRINGER' using two R's back to back instead of the legal name of 'Deringer' which was the legitimate company in Philadelphia which made this style of small single shot pistol! This was an attempt fo cash in on the Deringer name for profit! This weapon is the 2nd size being a little larger than the small one used in the Abraham Lincoln assassination. This piece measures 8 1/4 inches long with a 4 5/8ths long rifled 50 caliber barrel. The barrel has some simple engraving near the tang screw and a simple silver plated brass mortised front blade sight. The lock is highly scroll engraved as well as the hammer. The hammer has been repaired at some point. There is some light to moderate pitting on the lock, hammer and barrel. This piece has a nice dark patina on the steel parts but was probably touched up a bit. The lock works fine and it has a very strong spring. The brass trigger guard and various escrutcheons are silver plated. The Nose cap is engraved being silver plated as well with no provision for a ramrod. The walnut stock has various age cracks in it with nice checkering on the grip end. There have been a few repairs to the stock but all are stable at this time. This is a little 'Hand Cannon'!!!

Here we have a real nice Civil War Model 1858 Remington New Model .44 Caliber Revolver. The Remington-Beals Model Revolvers along with subsequent models and variations were percussion revolvers manufactured by Eliphalet Remington & Sons in .31 (Pocket) .36 (Navy) or .44 (Army) caliber, used during the American Civil War, and was the beginning of a successful line of medium and large frame pistols. It is commonly, though inaccurately, referred to as the Model 1858 due to the patent markings on its barrel, "PATENTED SEPT. 14, 1858/E. REMINGTON & SONS, ILION, NEW YORK, U.S.A./NEW MODEL."; although wide scale production did not start until 1861. The Remington revolver was a secondary, supplemental issue firearm for the Union Army until the Colt factory fire of 1864. Due to the fire the Colt 1860 Army was not available for some time, subsequently large numbers of the Remington revolver were ordered by the U.S. government. It was more expensive, by "50 cents than the Colt, but those who could afford it remarked on its durability. The Remington New Model Army, of which this example is, was made from 1863 to 1875 with a total quantity of approximately 122,000 units. This revolver is percussion; 44 caliber. Six-shot round cylinder with 8” octagon barrel with threads visible at the breech end. There are safety notches on the cylinder shoulders between the nipples. This Revolver has Walnut grips (no visible cartouche) and originally had a blued finish but now a dark patina. The early production had the mortised cone sight of the 1861 model and this one does have that cone sight. The serial numbers continue from the Model 1861 Army and commence approximately in the 15000 range with this one being 26883 so I believe it’s safe to say that it was probably made in 1863 or early 1864. The cylinders are unusually unnumbered and this one is. Check out the barrel markings in the pics. This particular revolver has letters stamped in various places being inspectors marks but the grips do not have a cartouche. The Civilian models usually do not have those inspectors markings stamped on various parts as this one does. The New Model Army Revolver was a favorite of William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody! This one has a great action working as it should. It has a good bore and has good nipples. I would not be afraid to shoot it today. There is minor pitting here and there and the previous owner removed some rust on each side of the frame forward of the cylinder and I have added color back there but the rest of the piece has the patina that has aged it for all these years. This is one nice Remington-not mint by any means but very nice!!! Check out the pics!!! $1,250.00

Here we have a German WW2 Model 98 Rifle. This is the Best known of all Mauser rifles and the one that most of my German collecting customers ask for and they are always in short supply. This is a 7.92 mm (8mm) bolt action rifle with a 23.6” barrel. The barrel exhibits a nice deep rifles bore with some evidence of pitting but not bad at all. Magazine capacity is 5 rounds. This one was the standard should arm of the German military during World War II. Introduced in 1935 about 11,000,000 were produced. This one ws made in 1943 as marked on the receiver ring and is also marked bnz which is Steyr-Daimler Puch AG, Steyr . Also on the receiver is MOD 98 , s/n 4915 There are a couple of Nazi waffen markings on the barrel with Eagle and swastika. There is some pitting on the barrel and receiver that has finish in them indicating that at some point this weapon was refinished, perhaps by the arsenal. The magazine floor pan and mount are marked 9808 The stock is beech and in very good condition The handguard may be walnut. The action works well and it’s a very nice looking rifle. The sling is a reproduction. Take a look at the pics!!! For this rifle $550.00

Here we have a Czech Mauser. In 1924 the Czechs began to manufacture a number of Mauser designed rifles for export and for it’s own military. Czech Mausers were based on the Model 98 action. This particular rifle is 7.92X54mm (8mm) and is in excellent condition. The rear sight has Greek markings on it I believe and if I am wrong on that let me know. The receiver is marked CS.ST. ZBROJOVKA BRNO and has lots of other small markings on it including the serial number 914. The magazine floor pan also has 914 stamped into it. The barrel is 29 inches long and exhibits a good deep rifled bore. The action works very well and the rifle looks very good overall with a very nice hardwood stock. Look at the pics!

Here we have an enigma! This is a Model 1865 Spencer Carbine model that has been made up of several parts to make it what it is. The markings on top of the receiver are mostly there and state that it is the model 1865 and made by the Burnside Rifle Company (Check the pics). Approximately 34,000 were made and I see a serial number on this one of 7351. The barrel is 18 3/4 inches long to the receiver and the bore is pitting and rifling completely gone. The forearm is a cut down rifle forearm with nosecap but fitted with a non fitting front barrel band instead of the second fitting band. The spring is still present. The action does not work and the hammer is stuck back. This was pulled back and just stayed there so the lock can be removed and the hammer returned to the resting pistion. The hammer screw is a non fitting screw and will not go all the way down. The cocking lever is an original lever but has been welded so will not go all the way shut however the action can been moved up and down as it should be. There are several new screws installed in the trigger bow and sling bar and yet, there are various screws missing as well. The lockplate and hammer is newer than the rest of the parts and the sling bar may be a new one or unused old stock. The rear sling swivel is original as well as the butt plate and spring loaded ammo tube. The stock is not broken or cracked along the tube and you can easily see two cartouches behind the sling swivel bar. There is a chip in the toe of the rear stock and a small chip just forward of the sling swivel. The initials J.K. are carved into the stock. This piece is quite unusal and would still look great on the wall! You could have conversations on this old piece for hours!!!

Note: The serial number on this one is 7351. 7350 was issued to Co B. 8th Indiana Vol. Cavalry. It's a long shot but it could be something and this piece did come out of central Indiana. There were several JK's who served in the 8th Indiana having mustered out in 1865 and they are:

Joseph Kiger H 05/25/64 Enlisted 05/26/65 Mustered Out

Joseph King H 08/29/61 Enlisted 07/20/65 Mustered Out Indianapolis, IN

John Kuhn F 12/15/64 Transfered 07/20/65 Mustered Out Indianapolis, IN

Joseph M Kyle D 08/29/61 Enlisted 07/20/65 Mustered Out Indianapolis, IN

I did not count anyone who mustered out in 1864 or before because this is the 1865 New Model. Probably will never find out for sure who used this piece but it's kind of fun to try to figure it out!

Here we have an early Eaglehead Sword and replacement later Naval Scabbard. The Eagle Head Sword was prominently adopted by militias and the American military shortly after the American Revolution. During the Federal period, it reached its peak fading into the 1840's. The abundance, style, and variety make it a perfect target for the collector. The makers are numerous, and much information may be found in books such as The American Eagle-Pommel Sword (Books I & II) by Andrew Mowbray, American Swords & Sword Maker's Marks by Donald Clegg Furr, and Silver-Mounted Swords by Daniel Hardzler. This style of sword is ideal for collectors due to the variety available. Although repairs of varying quality and scabbard marryings are fairly common with Eagle Heads, it appears that not too many outright fakes of these swords have permiated the market like Civil War Swords have so you can buy these swords with confidence!!! This particular sword has been married to a model 1852 U.S. Naval scabbard which is broken in half and has a lower drag tape repair but it does, for the most part, protect the blade of the Eaglehead sword . The scabbard does have initials engraved on one side and a nice Federal Shield engraved on the other side of the top mount. I believe this scabbard is for the later model naval sword with the thin blade. This sword is the pattern of the 1840 Infantry Officers Sword and while it is not marked it follows the pattern of the Widmann's sword of the period right down to the silver finish to the brass elements of the piece. His silver finish was thin and short lived so usually there is a lot of wear to his finishes as there is on this piece. This one has a like example shown on page 191 of The American Eagle-Pommel Sword by E. Andrew Mowbray. I would have to say after viewing the one in the book and comparing it to this one that this one is definitely a F.W.Widmann with type VI Eagle. This piece is nearly 35 inches long with a straight nearly 30 inch long thin blade. There is a fuller extending down from the ricasso 14 inches. The blade is single edged with simple gold filled engravings along the blade within the fuller. This sword has a tight fitting hilt with wire wrapped grip. The Eagle guard is only on one side. Check out the pics to see what I mean. This is a nice early sword!!

Here we have a Harrington & Richardson YOUNG AMERICA DOUBLE ACTION revolver that was made from 1884 to 1941. This is the 2nd issue .22 caliber 7 shot revolver I believe, and it was made before 1898 or after since I see a 4 digit serial number so it will not have to be transferred. This revolver has a solid frame with later octagon 2 inch barrel. It is a nickel plated model with some nickel being worn through. The plating remaining is approximately 80% or slightly more. The action works well in double or single action and the rifling is good. This piece is complete and has a really nice set of rubber grips on it that has virtually no damage to them. Nice example of a little revolver that wasn't made to last. $250.00

Here's the last one and I would call this a project gun. It would look great on the wall if you did nothing at all but the rolling block screw is missing so the rolling block falls out and there may be a couple of other parts in that area that it needs. This is a .22 long caliber Stevens CRACKSHOT and has a 20 inch round barrel. I believe this one to be the 26 1/2 smoothbore version of the No. 26. The bore is dark but I see no traces of rifling in it. The stocks are in good condition but it is missing the buttplate. Take a look at the pics! These old rifles bring back pleasant old times for me!!! $125.00

There is an adjustable rear peep sight and a hooded blade sight up front. The receiver is a nice mellow brown patina with a couple of very minor scratches in it from use. The action is perfect. The buttplate is the original metal one and the patina petty much matches the receiver and rear peep sight mechanism. This is one nice training rifle!!! It appears to have the original military sling on it as well. For this fine piece $1195.00

Here we have a very good Colt Model 1877 “Lightning” Double Action Revolver! The Colt M1877 was a double-action revolver manufactured by Colt's Patent Fire Arms from January 1877 to 1909 for a total of 166,849 revolvers. The Model 1877 was offered in three calibers, which lent them three unofficial names: the "Lightning", the "Thunderer", and the "Rainmaker". The principal difference between the models was the cartridge in which they were chambered: the "Lightning" being chambered in .38 Long Colt; the "Thunderer" in .41 Colt. Both models had a six-round ammunition capacity. An earlier model in .32 Colt known as the "Rainmaker" was offered in 1877. This particular model was made in 1899 so it doesn’t qualify for Antique by federal regulations but qualifies for Curio & Relic. The revolver is in .38 caliber and is a six shot with a 3 ½ inch nicely rifled barrel. There are several areas of thin original blue color on this piece with case hardened frame of which much case hardening present. The action works perfectly and locks up tight. All the markings are clear and legible. The triggerguard and backstrap looked to have been lightly cleaned at some point with no degradation to the serial number. The hard rubber grips are in very nice condition with more wear on the right hand grip indicating that this firearm was carried by a right handed person. There are no cracks, breaks or chips in the hand grips. All of the original screws are present and none seem to have been messed with at all. This was a popular firearm during the day. Even Billy the Kid was carrying one the night he was shot by Pat Garrett!! This is one revolver that I would have to say is better than my pics show. For this nice revolver $1,250.00 FFL or C&R required.

Here we have a georgous Colt Single Action Army that has been engraved. This one is known as the The 'Colt Frontier Six Shooter' and that is roll stamped on the barrel. The Colt Frontier or Frontier Six-Shooter was a Colt's 1873 "Model P" type revolver, manufactured in .44-40 Winchester caliber instead of .45 Colt (in which configuration it was called the Single Action Army), so as to be compatible with Winchester Model 73 ammunition. Production began in 1877. Colt Frontier Six-Shooter was the actual name of the Colt pistol model, and this was acid-etched on the left side of the barrel. After 1889, the legend was roll-stamped until 1919, when the caliber designation ".44-40" was added. Later Colt 1878 Double Action Army Models also wore this designation on the barrel when chambered in 44 WCF/44-40 Winchester. The Bisley 1895 Model was the final Colt to wear the Frontier Six Shooter designation.

We have a Colt Letter for this one. The serial number is 1497XX and according to the Colt Archives Letter this revolver was produced in 1893 having been shipped to Simmons Hardware Company in St. Louis, Missouri on September 29th, 1893. Simmons Hardware is famous itself. It was in caliber .44-40 with a barrel length of 4 3/4 inches and the finish was blue. This particular revolver has been customized and is quite different now.

This particular Colt has been nickel plated, after being blued, with professional engraving done on it. The engraver is listed as Robert Burr but I haven't been able to turn up anything on Mr. Burr on an internet search. Also we thought that the engravers tool that is included with the firearm as well as the sharpening guide belonged to Mr. Burr but under magnification the initials on the tool are CCH.

I do believe that the engraving was done some time ago as the cylinder is a trifle frosty from age now. Also, the serial numbers are a tiny bit light on the butt from buffing the original bluing off and nickel plating it. The barrel length was originally listed as 4 3/4 inches but the barrel now is 7 1/2 inches indicating that it has been changed out. Also, now this fine revolver has beautiful checkered custom walnut stocks which are in fantastic condition! This SAA functions flawlessly and looks just great!

The revolver is housed in a custom box that fits it perfectly and I have no doubt that it was made for this particular revolver. The lid had been changed probably due to breaking off at some point. All in all this revolver is just gorgeous!!! One of a kind! $20,000.00 OWNER HAS REDUCED THE PRICE TO $15,000 !!

This first Winchester is a Winchester ’94 carbine that was made in 1940 and is still in good overall condition. The barrel and loading tube still have most of the original bluing on it. The markings are all fine on the barrel and the barrel is marked ‘PROOF STEEL’. The wood stocks are in good condition and have hand checkering on them. This hand checkering was not done in the factory but probably by the original owner of the carbine. It’s kind of crude but lends great character! The forearm has a crack in the front that you can see in the pics and is missing the band screw. The band screw is needed to keep the forearm in place The caliber of this firearm is marked 30 W.C.F. which is in fact a 30-30, probably the most popular old Cowboy Winchester! The bore is great! The action is perfect! The receiver is mostly in the white while the loading lever is mostly in the blue. This firearm has a steel crescent butt plate. Great old Western Gun from Montana! No history other than it came from the museum. $795.00

Here we have an old percussion rifle that has been damaged but the previous owner loved it so much that he made a most crude repair to it. This is a 32 caliber halfstock rifle made by C. Baker of Albany, NY. This piece was most likely made about 1840 or so. C. Baker is marked on the back action lock. Looks like the front section of the halfstock got broken off somehow and the owner dipped a leather thong in glue and wrapped it around the barrel to hold it altogether! The part of the stock that remains is just beautiful looking like burl walnut so I’m sure this gun was something to behold! The rifle has an 31 ½ inch long octagonal barrel. You can tell it was a half stock because of the ramrod tubes under the barrel. The ramrod is lacking. The lock has a really strong spring but will not hold in either half cock or full cock. It does have a set trigger. The rear sight is a tang side while the front sight is a blade sight. This little percussion rifle is a survivor! $395.00

Here we have a vintage Remington 521-T bolt action rifle in .22 caliber. This piece is a long time favorite with shooters. This one has the 25 inch barrel which exhibits nice rifling. The action works very well and the markings are nice and deep. The bluing is pretty good in the 90% range or better. The stock is in good condition with the usual dings from use. There is a rubber recoil slip on pad which has seen better days. The stock is a slightly different shade under that pad as it has been protected from sunlight. The rifle has a nice full leather sling and there is also a nice Bushnell Sportview scope mounted. I am sure that because of this type of scope mounts that this piece has been drilled and tapped. All in all this is a wonderful rifle and already has nice optics mounted on it. For this piece $295.00

Here we have an approximately 22 gauge fowler that has the lock stamped Bixler & Iddings, Lafayette, Ind a . They were in business from 1850 to 1880. I have seen several nice longarms marked as such but this is the first time I have seen a fowler maked with this firms name. The lock color and the rest of the gun match so I'm confident that they have been together a long time. The fowler is about 56 inches long with a 41 inch barrel. The action works well. The lock has on it floral designes as well as the Bixler & Iddings info. The hammer has been repaired with lead it looks like. The stock is in good condition with a little wood loss forward of the lock next to the barrel. The buttplate and the trigger guard are sheet iron or steel. The ramrod looks like an original wooden ramrod but most are replaced so I'm not sure about this one. This fowler could have been made by someone using the Bixler & Iddings lock but I can say that the stock was made to fit this lock. It's still a pretty nice old fowler! $850.00

Here is another double barrel shotgun made by the same maker as the shotgun above. It’s marked American Gun Co. New York. Although it’s not the quality of the gun above this one is still pretty nice! The shotgun sports 29 ¾ inch long barrels which appear to be of good quality with good bores and with no dents. I do not see the familiar pattern of Damascus that a lot of these old guns have and there is no reference to that stamped anywhere on this piece. The entire piece is about 46 inches long and is in overall very good condition. The gun locks up tight and has no wobble in it. The action works fine and the springs are tight as well. There is a couple of minor surface age cracks behind the left or reverse box lock but doesn’t appear to be deep. The walnut stocks are otherwise in excellent condition with some checkering to the fore arm and the butt stock wrist. There is wear to the fore arm from handling. All the serial numbers match . The butt plate is the original hard rubber butt plate. All in all this is a very nice old shotgun from the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s. Great old Cowboy gun! I got it right so I will sell it right at $275.00

The Type 38 rifle Arisaka was a bolt-action rifle that supplemented the Type 99 Japanese standard infantry rifle during the Second World War. The design was adopted by the Imperial Japanese Army in 1905 (the 38th year of the Meiji period, hence "Type 38") and served from then until the end of 1945. This particular weapon is the carbine type having been made at the Koishikawa (Toyko) ; later Kokura Arsenal from 1906 to 1940. This one has the 19 inch barrel and exhibits pretty good rifling down it's length and takes 6.5 mm ammo. This one has the Mum intact over 38 type in Japanese.

Here is an item that has been in my personal collection for years but I find that I must scale down. This is a blank document that measures about 7 ½ by 3 ½ inches and is printed in the font and style of the time. This is a blank document that has never been filled out. I have never seen another, filled out or not. The document is for Camp Morton which was in Indianapolis and was used from 1862 to 1865. The document is for a C.S.A. prisoner to be released after taking the oath by the President’s Proclamation Dec, 8, 1863. The proclamation is as such:

Lincoln's Proclamation of Amnesty and Reconstruction - December 8, 1863 by Gil Wilson First public notice of the December 8, 1863 Presidential proclamation offering amnesty to citizens of the Confederacy, providing they take an oath that they "will abide by and faithfully support all proclamations of the President made during the existing rebellion having reference to slaves" (i.e. the Emancipation Proclamation). The issue was how to restore the states that were separated from the union. "The crisis which threatened to divide the friends of the Union is past", announced Lincoln. Who would be in charge: Congress or the President? In his message to Congress on December 8, 1863, Lincoln declared reconstruction of the South a wholly executive responsibility and offered full pardon with restoration of all rights of property, except as to slaves, to all rebels who would take an oath of future loyalty to the Constitution and pledge to obey acts of Congress and presidential proclamations relating to slavery. Those excluded from taking the oath were the highest ranking members of the Confederacy government officials, judges, military and naval officers above the rank of army colonel or navy lieutenant, former congressmen, and all who have engaged in treating colored persons or white persons otherwise than lawfully as prisoners of war. Lincoln encouraged the Southern states to make provisions in relation to the freed people of such State, which shall recognize and declare their permanent freedom, provide for their education, and which may yet be consistent, as a temporary arrangement, with their present condition as a laboring, landless, and homeless class.

I have this document matted, shrinkwrapped and under plastic on a document frame. It has some waterstaining on it but otherwise is in great shape. It can be easily removed and reframed if you wish to do that. For this rare piece $225.00

Here we have a real nice Remington Model 31 shotgun in 12 gauge with variable choke system. The Remington Model 31 is a pump-action shotgun that competed with the Winchester Model 1912 for the American sporting arms market. Produced from 1931 to 1949, it superseded the John Pedersen designed, bottom loading and ejecting Models 10 and 29, and the John Browning designed Model 17. It was replaced by the less expensive to manufacture Remington 870 in 1951. The Model 31 was Remington's first side ejecting pump-action shotgun. Stocks were walnut with checkered walnut forend and later changed to a ribbed forend. The Model 31 was made in three gauges with 121,000 12-gauge models made and 75,000 16- and 20-gauge examples also produced. The Federal Bureau of Investigation acquired one Model 31 per office in 1935 in response to the Kansas City Massacre.[3] The model 31L was a lightweight version featuring an aluminum receiver and trigger housing. During World War II Remington produced a Model 31 riot gun for military use. These were stamped "U.S. Property" on the left side of the receiver and had an approximate serial number range of 51000-63000. Except for a single prototype, no Model 31 trench guns were produced. This particular shotgun is the sporting shotgun with a serial number of 312XX. The bluing is 80% there except on the forearm tube. The markings are all nice and sharp. The barrel itself has a full choke and the bore is nice and shiny with some minor frosting that will scrub out. The action works very well. All the markings are nice and sharp. The wood is in very nice condition with some of the gloss wearing off. The buttstock has the red rubber sleeve over it. The wood does have some bruising and scratches which one would expect. There is a light scratch on the reverse (left) side of the receiver. All in all this is a great gun! For this piece $325.00

Here we have a Colt Model 1903 Pocket Hammerless pistol that dates to 1917. The Colt Model 1903 Pocket Hammerless (not to be confused with the Colt Model 1903 Pocket Hammer) is a .32 ACP caliber, self-loading, semi-automatic pistol designed by John Browning and built by Colt Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company of Hartford, Connecticut. The Colt Model 1908 Pocket Hammerless is a variant introduced five years later in .380 ACP caliber. Despite the title 'Hammerless', the Model 1903 does have a hammer. It is covered and hidden from view under the rear of the slide. This allowed the pistol to be carried in, and withdrawn from a pocket quickly and smoothly without snagging.

Approximately 570,000 Colt Pocket Hammerless pistols were produced from 1903 to 1945, in five different types. Some were issued to US Army and US Air Force general officers from World War II through the 1970s. They were replaced in 1972 with the RIA Colt M15 General Officer's Model, a compact version of the M1911A1. The Shanghai Municipal Police issued the M1908 to its Chinese officers in the 1920s and 1930s and it was a popular model with police in the United States such as the New York City Police Department, Woonsocket RI, Chicopee Mas, Gloversville NY. Detroit MI and many others. In addition to lawful owners, many gangsters of the pre-World War II era favored the Model 1903 and Model 1908 because they were relatively small and easily concealed. It is said that Al Capone kept one in his coat pocket and Bonnie Parker used one to break Clyde Barrow out of jail after smuggling it into the jail by taping it to her thigh. Bank robber John Dillinger was carrying this model of pistol when he was shot by FBI agents outside the Biograph theater on July 22, 1934, and another famous bank robber, Willie Sutton had one when he was captured by police in Brooklyn on February 18, 1952. So you see this little Colt pistol has a lot of history accompaning it !!

This particular pistol came out of Michigan and is in very good condition . The bluing is about 60% and the markings are all deep and legible. The barrel has a beautiful bore in it! The action works as it should as does the grip and slide safeties. The grips are the checkered hard rubber with the Rampart Colt molded into them. The user of this pistol was left handed as there is more wear to the left grip from the hand than the right. There is a minor bit of pitting on the left side of the slide above the serarations and a tiny bit in front of the Colt markings on the right slide. This pistol comes with two magazines both of which are marked CAL 32 COLT. Check out the pics! $475.00

Here we have a Russian-Soviet Mosin Nagant Model 1944 (M44) Carbine dated 1947 on the barrel. Although the Soviet designed Mosin Nagant M91/30 rifle had served with distinction in The Great Patriotic War, the Soviet high command determined there was a need for a shorter and more handy bolt action service rifle for the Red Army. The savage street by street combat in cities such as Stalingrad clearly showed that a carbine length weapon would better satisfy the needs of the Red Army. While the earlier Model 1938 Carbine seemed to fill this demand, the lack of a bayonet was seen as a grave deficiency in Soviet circles. The Soviet Union was winning the war against Hitler with shear numbers of men and machines coupled with mass of attack. While the concept of soldiers with bayonets advancing in gigantic formations seemed antiquated to the militaries of the West, this philosophy was still a key factor in the Soviet order of battle. A new carbine whose bayonet would reflect this doctrine was deemed in order, and the concept behind the Model 1944 Carbine ( M44 Carbine ) was born. (Previous info curteosy of www.mosinnagant.net) This is one of those carbines with folding bayonet. This is an import having been imported by Century Arms International and is 7.62X54R caliber. This one has the built in box magazine. The metal surfaces are all in very nice condition with excellent stamps. All the numbers on the various parts seem to match. The carbine functions flawlessly. The barrel has many markings and the bore is excellent. The Russian Hammer and Sickle is stamped on the barrel as well. The sights are present and in excellent condition. The folding bayonet is also present and in excellent condition. The stock looks nice overall but does have two age cracks in the buttstock that you can see in the pics. These cracks are quite stable and strong however. The original ramrod is present as well. Overall this piece is in very good condition. For this nice carbine $350.00

Here we have a Colt Revolving Rifle! The design of the Colt revolving rifle was essentially similar to the revolver type pistols, with a rotating cylinder that held five or six rounds in a variety of calibers from .36 to .64. The Model 1855, which was the most widely produced revolving rifle, was available in .36, .44 and .56 caliber. Four barrel lengths were available: 15, 18, 21 and 24 inches. A six shot cylinder was used if the caliber was .36 or the .44. If the caliber was .56, a five-shot cylinder was used. This particular rifle is a 56 caliber rifle with 5 shot cylinder and a lower serial number of 3030.

A revolving rifle used percussion caps, like revolving pistols of the time. A cartridge (consisting of powder and a lead ball) was loaded into the front of the chamber and then compressed with a plunger that was located beneath the barrel. Once the cylinder's chambers were loaded, percussion caps were placed over the vent nipples at the rear of the cylinder. The weapon was now ready to fire. In addition to being susceptible to chain fire problems, the revolving cylinder design also tended to spray lead splinters into the wrist and hand of the user. Revolving pistols did not suffer from this problem since the user kept both hands behind the cylinder while firing a pistol. Major problems with the design prevented its use until 1857. The principal problem was that gunpowder would sometimes leak from the paper cartridges in field conditions, lodging in various recesses around the firing cylinder. Hot gas leaking from the gap between the firing cylinder and the barrel would ignite this powder, which would in turn, ignite all of the powder in the chambers waiting to be fired. This is known as a "chain fire" and was a relatively common failure with early percussion revolving firearms. When this happened with the Colt Revolving Rifle , a spray of metal would be sent forward into the left arm and hand of the user.

Some models could be fitted with sword style bayonets. In these rifles, the front sight would double as the bayonet lug. This rifle has no provision for a sword style bayonet. The action works well, meaning the hammer cocks and drops as it should, except the cylinder has to be hand rotated. The patent marks are present although somewhat worn on the reverse (left) side of the frame. The butt stock and butt plate are original and in good condition. The fore stock is a modern replacement and needs to be changed. The ramrod is not original to this rifle either. I am sure that both barrel bands although original are improper to this gun. The barrel is 30 inches long and although I can see rifling down in it the barrel has pitting from black powder. Also, looks like a few screws have been replaced. The worst thing about this rifle is that the markings were worn off the top strap and someone engraved them back on! A bad job! But it is what it is. In good to fine condition this piece is valued from $3,250 to $10,000 in Flayderman’s last Antique Firearms Guide printed in 2007. Since this piece is a piece to either restore or use for parts we have valued it at $1,450.00 Either way it would look great over the mantle! Where you gonna find another one for this price!

Here we have a good old Remington Model 58 Sportsman semi-auto shotgun in 12 gauge 27 ½ inch barrel with modified choke and a top rib This one has seen lots of use but still has a decent bore. This one takes 2 ¾ inch shells or shorter and so stated. The stock has the usual bumps here and there but nothing major and is in good condition. The pistol grip finial shows a hunting dog with a bird in his mouth. There is checkering to the buttstock and the fore stock on this semi auto shotgun. The bluing is about 60% with spots in the finish, especially on the receiver. It would be easy to refinish if you want to but then again this is a shooter so why? The receiver is engraved on one side with a flight of ducks and the other side with a dog flushing grouse. The firearm seems to function as it should. Made between 1956 and 1963. It’s a shooter!

This is an old Ithaca 10 gauge double barrel shotgun! The Ithaca Gun Company is a manufacturer of shotguns and rifles originally established in Ithaca, New York in 1880. The Company name is stamped on both locks. The barrels on this shotgun seem to be laminated so it’s probably not safe to shoot and there is some corrosion in both barrels. All serial numbers match on this gun on various parts. The rabbit ear hammers match and the locks work just fine. There is some simple engraving on this old shotgun. The wooden stocks are generally in good condition but there is a repairable crack at the wrist which is not uncommon. The buttplate is hard rubber with ducks on it and the words ITHACA GUN. The forearm is in very good condition showing much wear but no damage and has a hardwood insert at the end. This shotgun weighs a whooping 10 pounds 8 ounces! The serial number of 246XX dates this old shotgun to 1893 so no paperwork is required. This one is missing the reverse (LEFT SIDE) firing pin. If I can find one to replace it the price will be reflected by that addition. All in all a good old cowboy gun! $295.00

Short Magazine Lee-Enfield Rifle No.I Mk.III*(SMLE); 1916 Birmingham Small Arms Co.(BSA), England Production/British Service; .303 British

Here we have a British Enfield Mark III by B.S.A. Co. 1916. This is a .303 caliber weapon. There are various British proof marks on it as well as the country of origin ENGLAND stamped on the barrel. The serial number on the receiver and the ramrod plug match. The magazine is not matching. The bore is really nice and the mechanics work fine. The stock has a ding here and there but nothing major. The butt stock has a 1 ½ inch piece dovetailed onto the rear. It’s a professional job so I believe that it’s an arsenal fix. There is a shallow groove in the reverse stock next to the small lever with the III on it. The butt plate has the trapdoor for the cleaning rod, now lacking, otherwise complete. I see no import markings on this firearm. All in all it’s a very nice example of the Mark III and probably saw service in both WW1 and WW2. For this piece $495.00

Here we have an early Model 1891 Mosin-Nagant rifle. This is a Russian weapon being a 7.62X54Rmm caliber bolt action rifle with a 31/6 inch long rifled barrel with plenty of rifling but a dark bore with some corrosion in it. The rifle has a 5 shot integral magazine, ladder rear sight, and a full length stock fastened by two barrel bands. It is blued with a walnut stock. This model 1891 was fitted with a heavyweight rear barrel section behind the rear sight. This one has the upper handguard and thusly I believe it was made 1908 to 1918 according to resources. This rifle has two sling swivels but the front one is broken. These are through blued escutcheons on either side of the stock. Complete with ramrod. The stock is in very nice condition with only some cosmetic areas that need touched up if you want to do that. The receiver and bolt match. This rifle was imported into the US by C.A.I of Vermont. The abbreviations stand for: "Century Arms International St. Albans, VT" This mark is found on Tula, Izhevsk, and Sestroryetsk M91s. Take a look at the pics! $395.00

Here we have a very nice single shot Model 1842 Military Pistol by Aston in Showcase!

The US Model 1842 Pistol as produced by the firms of Henry Aston and Ira N Johnson represented both the beginning and the end of an era in US military handguns. This series of pistols were the last of the large bore, single shot, smooth bore pistols to be issued in any quantity and would essentially be replaced by the various multi-shot percussion revolvers that the government would begin to purchase during the 1850’s and would continue to procure through the end of the Civil War era. It was also the first official percussion ignition pistol to be adopted by the US military. The Johnson and Aston produced 40,000 of these single-shot pistols ,not counting the “Palmetto Armory” production, with Aston producing some 30,000 of the guns. The M-1842 fired a .54 caliber round ball from an 8.5” smooth bore barrel, using the same ball as the M-1841 Mississippi Rifle. The 14” long pistol was the general service pistol of the time for the US military and saw use with the infantry, cavalry, dragoons, artillery and navy. Like previous single shot military pistols used by the US, this one had a large bulbous, metal-capped, butt that was designed to allow the pistol to be used as a club after discharging it. The end result is that cracked and damaged stocks are quite commonly encountered on these pistols.

This pistol is in EXCELLENT condition, with fantastic markings that are clear and sharp. The lock is clearly marked: MIDDTN / CONN / 1851 in three vertical lines behind the hammer and US / H ASTON & CO in two lines horizontally forward of the hammer. The tang of the pistol is dated with the matching 1851 date, and the breech is very clearly marked: US / GW / P in three lines. The barrel flat is also clearly marked with a small JH inspectors mark. Also on this pistol are the initials MS which indicates that after Military use by the US forces this particular pistol was re-issued to Massachuttes Militia. The bore in this 8 1/2" round barrel is a smooth bore and shows some pitting but not bad at all for this type pistol. The metal is in very nice condition with the arsenal bright barrel. The lock and hammer show signs of old color and the trigger is blued. The front sight is a simple brass blade front sight. The hammer screw is a brass replacement instead of the steel original. I believe the screw to be quite old but is not original to the gun. The brass has a nice mellow color and may have been slightly cleaned by handling over the years. This particular weapon weighs 2 lbs, 9 ozs. The lock works perfectly and the nipple, although full of grease, is original and in great shape. I do not believe that this pistol was used much and is the nicest one that I have seen. There are dings on this weapon in the stock which is normal and a couple of cracks in the stock from the top lock plate body screw on the reverse side to the barrel being about 1 inch long for one crack and about 1/4 inch long for the other. The 2 stock cartouches are the best I have ever seen and there is a large GWW stamped there as well. That could be from the Massachuttes Militia inspector but I do not know for sure. You would have to go some to see a better example! This is a bargain at $1500.00 !! Where you gonna find a better one!

Here we have another example of a single shot Model 1842 Military Pistol by Aston in Showcase!

This example is not as nice as the one above but has shown real use! This particular pistol has pitting and wear which I like to call Character!!! The barrel is externally pitted but some of these weapons were used by the Navy and show such wear. I cannot see any Navy markings on the piece but who knows. This weapon shows that it has been fired quite a bit a witnessed by the pitting on the breech of the barrel which would have been caused by the corrosive black powder. The nipple has been replaced and since then doesn't look like it was used. The barrel markings are all but gone but I can still see what looks like a 'WN' stamped on the barrel on the reverse. I cannot see a barrel date on the tang due to the black powder pitting. This barrel has a good smoothbore with some pitting but not overwhelming. The lockplate functions very well and is marked MIDDLETON, CONN over 1851 at the tail of the plate and in front of the hammer is US over ASTON & CO. These marks are still very visible. The hammer is a nice dark patina and has the correct original hammer screw. The captured ramrod is complete and functions as it should. The brass parts are real nice, having been cleaned sometime in their past. It's not a brilliant brightness and is turning mellow. You can see an inspectors mark here and there on this piece. The walnut stock is in generally good condition with a crack here and there that you can see in the pics. Overall it's a very nice example that actually saw hard use! Take a look at the pics! $850.00

Here we have a real nice Beretta 92G 9MM pistol with 2 magazines in hard case. This is an excellent pistol! The Beretta 92G pistol is a de-cock only version of the 92FS Tactical and Military Pistol. The G models (designed for the French "Gendarmerie Nationale") were adopted by the French Military as PAMAS; they feature a manual de-cocking lever only instead of the safety-de-cocking lever of the 92 FS. When the de-cocking lever is released, it automatically returns to the ready-to-fire position. There is no manual safety.

This pistol is in excellent condition with only a couple of small imperfections in the finish which are minor. Has nice night sights. The piece functions flawlessly and comes in a hard case with 2 magazines, a 10 round and a 15 round magazine. The bore is excellent and I do not believe that this fine pistol has seen much use.

Here we have a M91 Russian made but Finnish restocked Mosin Nagant

The Mosin–Nagant is a five-shot, bolt-action, internal magazine–fed, military rifle, developed by the Imperial Russian Army from 1882 to 1891, and used by the armed forces of the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union and various other nations. It is one of the most mass-produced military bolt-action rifles in history with over 37 million units having been made since its inception in 1891, and, in spite of its age, it has been used in various conflicts around the world even up to the modern day, rugged, simple to use, and effective, much like the AK-47 and its variants. To see them in action see the great Movie about the Russian Army in WW2 with emphasis on the Great Russian Sniper, Vasily Grigoryevich Zaytsev , 23 March 1915 – 15 December 1991. Vasily was a Soviet sniper and a Hero of the Soviet Union during World War II. Prior to November 10th, 1942 he killed 32 Axis soldiers with the standard-issue Mosin–Nagant rifle (effective range of 900 metres or 985 yards). Between November 10th, 1942 and December 17th, 1943, during the Battle of Stalingrad, he killed 225 soldiers and officers of the Wehrmacht and other Axis armies, including 11 enemy snipers. A feature-length film, Enemy at the Gates (2001), starring Jude Law as Zaytsev, was based on part of William Craig's non-fiction book Enemy at the Gates: The Battle for Stalingrad (1973), which includes a "sniper's duel" between Zaytsev and a Wehrmacht sniper school director, Major Erwin König. It's a great film! Check it out! Here are some stats on the Finish M91 Mosin Nagant:

Finnish M91 Mosin Nagant General Specifications: General Description: Weight -- 9 1/2 lbs. (4.3kg)) Length (over all) -- 51 1/2" (130.8 cm) Barrel Length -- 31 1/2" (80.0 cm) Stock length -- 47 1/2" (120.7 cm) • Produced from- as early as 1922 to as late as 1944. • Most common model of rifle used by the Finnish military

History Finland, during the war for independence from Russia in 1917 captured numerous M91 Mosins. Along with the captured weapons, they also already had many on hand from former Soviet occupation and decided to use it as the basis to supply and arm their military. The M91 was used to arm troops from the Civil Guard to the basic infantry. Finland also purchased or traded other arms for them. Most were aquired from other countries between 1924 thru 1941, from various places such as Poland, Bulgaria, and Yugoslavia. Some M91 rifles can be found in standard Russian built configuration with nothing more than a [SA] stamp. The Finnish military decided to modify the Mosin thru out it's use. The M91 can be found in many configurations. The one thing Finland would reuse is the receiver. The receiver can be found from all manufactures and all dates, the hex receiver being widely used. Much like other Finnish weapons, variations exist, a few later M91's have been found fitted with a round receiver (very rare). The most common variation is stocks, anything from a standard reused Russian issue stock to the two and three piece spliced Finnish stock can be found. The Finnish made stocks have a change also(these have been found used on Russian stocks also), the use of metal wire sling hangers, these sling hangers allow the many different sling variations the Finn's had to be attached. Brass shims are a common find in the action, these were used as accurizing methods, helping to adjust pressure on the barrel. Other small variations can also be found, trigger set-ups from other Finnish Mosins, front and rear sights can be expected at times. The normal rear sight is generally the standard Konoalov, with an extra step for 200 meter battle sight. The Russian arshin on the left side can be X'ed out, stamped through or scrubbed. The Finnish marked the right side of the base in meters.

This particular rifle has a Russian made and dated 1930 barrel assembly mounted on the Finish laminated 2 piece stock. The entire piece is in very good condition and only lacks the cleaning rod. The metal surfaces show most of the original bluing with only a little rusting to the butt plate. The action works well and the bore is very good. This would be a good shooter! The wood stock is in very nice condition and complete. I have shown a couple of pics with the laminated 2 piece stock in them. This is a caliber 7.62x54r which is quite readily available today. For this fine piece $350.00

Here is a Remington Model 10 Pump 12 Gauge. Conceived by Remington's designer John D. Pedersen, the gun was introduced in the Remington Arms Co. 1908-09 catalogue as the Remington Repeating Shotgun. In 1911, M. Hartley Dodge combined his firearms and ammunition companies as Remington Arms - Union Metallic Cartridge Co., and shortly thereafter they began calling the gun the Model No. 10. Wikipedia says "The Remington Model 10 is a pump-action shotgun designed by John Pedersen with an internal hammer and a tube magazine which loaded and ejected from a port in the bottom of the receiver. An updated version, the Model 29, was introduced in 1930 with improvements made by C.C. Loomis." "The United States military used a short-barreled version known variously as the "trench" or "riot" shotgun. The Winchester Model 1897 was the major production, but Remington made 3500 of the Model 10-A version for issue to U.S. troops during World War I. The Model 10 was modified by reducing barrel length to 23 inches (58 cm) and adding sling swivels, a wooden heat shield over the barrel, and an adapter with bayonet lug for affixing a M1917 bayonet. These trench guns with serial numbers between 128000 and 166000 were stamped with US and the flaming bomb insignia on the left side of the receiver. The United States military also purchased a number of Remington Model 10 with 20-inch (51-cm) barrels for guarding prisoners, and 26 to 30-inch (66 to 76-cm) barrels for training aerial gunners. The Model 10-A was used in limited numbers by the Marine Corps through the 1930s. Unfortunately this is not one of those guns. The serial number on this firearm is 62348 making this particular firearm being made in 1910 I believe. The shotgun is in good condition but lacks any color and there is a crack in the butt stock near the receiver on the reverse side that could be easily repaired. The bore is fine being shiny and bright with no pitting that I can see. There is a leather sleeve on the end of the buttstock. Good old collectible shotgun! For this one $250.00

Heres a full stock percussion rifle with set trigger in .38 caliber. This rifle is over 56 inches long with a 46 inch octagon barrel. The stock nearly goes all the way out to the end of the barre. I would say that this was an owner built percussion firearm and was always percussion having never been converted from Flintlock. The barrel and lock was probably procured from a gun maker and the owner put it together. The stock looks homemade and just has a fantastic look to it. It’s been rope burned to simulate curly maple and looks great even though it has a crack on the side and another extension of that crack from the ramrod channel to the trigger guard. Looks like someone ‘Davy Crocketted’ someone! There’s a great story here! Wish I knew it! The stock has a great curvature appeal to it and terminates at the buttstock with no butt plate. Never was one. Firearm on a budget! Also on the other end the stock terminates at the front without a nose cap and never had one of those either! There are a few other nondisplaced age cracks here and there but nothing too bad. The set trigger works find and it becomes a hair trigger after that. The nipple is battered some from dry firing. The lock plate, hammer and nipple area of the barrel is pitted and no words/makers name is visible. The tang is a little primitive and definitely hand cut into the stock. The trigger guard is iron as well and you can see where the maker misjudged his length on the front part of that trigger guard. The wood in that area as well as the wood in the major cracks have a patina that matches the rest of the weapon so I’m sure this was done a long time ago. The ramrod pipes are simple iron pipes and the ramrod is just a steel rod which I’m sure is a replacement a long time ago. It’s still a great rifle with tons of character!!! $650.00

Here is an original SNAKE CHARMER small .410 shotgun made by H. Koon Inc in Dallas Texas. A great website entitled NylonRifles.com wrote a good piece on these small shotguns. Here is part of what they wrote: 'A popular concept in the southern swamps and south west deserts was to carry a small shotgun for traveling in the bush. Small shotguns were also carried on fishing boats for water snakes and out on the oceans for finishing off unruly catches. Often these shotguns were inexpensive single shots cut down to minimum legal barrel and overall length. Just as often they were in the minimum caliber one could find, that being .410, (.410 is a caliber, not a gauge.) And yes, one could use various shot cartridges in pistols but single shot shotguns, particularly in .410 bore, were both light weight, cheap and ubiquitous in rural areas. Such shotguns became known as “snake charmers”. Sometime in the late 1970s or early 80’s a Texan named Homer Koon marketed a small .410 shotgun under the name “Snake Charmer”. What was unique about it was that it was all stainless steel, light weight (about 3 lbs) and had a short stock with storage for four shells and was scaled down that made it more suitable for one handed operation than shooting from the shoulder.' As per the article this is the original Snake Charmer made by Koon. This design was sold to another company who marketed it as the 'SNAKE CHARMER II' of which this is now. Since then the company has sold and this firearm is being no longer produced. This one shoots a .410 gauge shell 3 inch long or shorter. The receiver and barrel are stainless steel while the fore arm and butt stock are plastic. The barrel is smoothbore and needs a good scrubbing but should clean up fine. This firearm is in overall good condition with no cracks or breaks in it but it does have a gouge in the reverse (left) side of the stock by a screw that you can see in the pics. The gouge is not through the plastic. There is storage for 4 shells in the butt stock/ butt plate area. For this piece $175.00

Here we have a 12 gauge Lefever Double Barrel Shotgun. Here is some history on the company:

Daniel M. Lefever was born Aug. 27th, 1835 in Ontario County, NY. By 1850 he was thought to have been in an apprenticeship with John Cutler. By 1857 Dan had started in business on his own in Canandaigua NY.

John A. Nichols Dan Lefever left to build his new hammerless shotgun in 1879. John Nichols continued building the Nichols & Lefever hammer gun under John A Nichols. There were around 600 of the Nichols guns built. The only changes that Nichols had was an adjustable hinge pin and he added an AA grade gun.

DM Lefever In 1879 Dan Lefever left Nickols & Lefever to make his new side cocking shotgun. There was about 2300 sidecockers built AA grade through E grade. Sidecockers have been recorded in 10 ga, 12 ga, 14 ga, 16 ga, and 3 barrel guns.

Lefever Arms Co. Around 1884 the sidecocker was replaced by the automatic hammerless that cocked on opening amd Lefever Arms was formed with the help from Ames Howelett the Durston's. These are the most common of the Lefever guns. We referred to as the "Syracuse model". Dan was in his hay day designing new and iprovments to his Lefever Arms gun. By 1901 Dan had been pushed out of the front office and was the shop superintendent. By 1901 Dan had his fill and left Lefever Arms Co. LAC guns have been seen in grades 1000, Optimus, AA, A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H I, DS. In gauges from 8 ga, 10 ga, 12 ga, 14 ga, 16 ga, 20 ga, rifle and 3 barrel guns. Around 1916 the Durston's sold Lefever Arms to the Ithaca gun Co. Ithaca built or assambled the remaining Lefever Arms guns until about 1920.

This particular gun is a G grade gun is the Automatic Hammerless that cocked on opening and has a brass sheet repair to the wrist that was recessed into the wood so it would be a smooth transition. Whoever owed this old shotgun loved it enough to save it. The serial number on the "G" grade gun is 158XX with the last patent date of '87 on the triggerguard but I believe that this shotgun was made turn of the century into the 20th century. The action works well and the barrels are tight with no wobble to them at all. There is some pitting down the damascus barrels but mostly bright and would enjoy a good scrubbing! The original hard rubber buttplate is still there and in good condition. The stock is sound and original except where it was repaired. Some dings and nicks to the wood but pleasing. Heck, it's a 100 + year old firearm! For this good old girl $450.00

Here we have a Single Shot .22 made in the 1950's by Mossberg. This is a beefy rifle that would be a wonderful stable shooter! It's bolt action and shoots .22 S-L-LR. The barrel is marked 'Wards Western FIeld 94M 390A' which is a Mossberg Model 26C. Many major retailers like Sears, Wards etc. had their brand name put on the firearms that they sold. Many of these guns were basically the same as the existing manufacturers with different wood, sights etc. This particular rifle is in excellent condition with most of the original bluing on it . The receiver is slightly turning brown and has been drilled and tapped but I don't know if that was original or not to this piece. The original sights are still on the rifle. The markings are nice and deep on the barrel and the rifling is nice and shiny with deep rifling. The original red and green safety buttons are present on the stock. The stock is a very nice piece of walnut with only a slight age crack by the front sling guide and a couple of dings (grooves) to the bottom of the stock, otherwise fine. This nice old rifle brings back memories!! $225.00

Here we have a RARE Remington 20 Ga. Single barreled percussion shotgun made circa 1866 through the 1870's. As per Flayderman's 9th Edition of the Antique Firearms Guide the quantity is unknown but the 1873 catalog mentioned having made and sold 10,000 of which they rarely show up on the market. In my 36 years of business this is only the 2nd one that I have obtained. This piece is a 20 gauge 35" round barrel, muzzle crowned firearm. It has a narrow, flat iron frame with center mounted hammer that has a deep "V" notched sighting slot on the hammer head. This piece, as normal, is completely unmarked except perhaps under the barrel with an inspectors mark or proof mark. I have not taken it apart to see. The shotgun has a walnut stock and short forend with iron tip. The forend has a repair with a splice of wood added due to damage. This is an old repair. The shotgun has an iron trigger guard and butt plate. It is of a simple design and construction. The ramrod is a replacement. The rear dovetailed sight is lacking but otherwise complete and in wonderful working condition. See the pics! $495.00

THE MASONIC SWORD BELOW IS SOLD!!!

Here we have a Fraternal or Society sword. Here is some history on the maker thanks to Kris Rzepczynski, Kalamazoo, Michigan Public Library Staff, :

Henderson-Ames Company: Regalia Makers One of the country’s leading producers of uniforms and regalia, the Henderson-Ames Company of Kalamazoo, Michigan, served lodges, secret societies, and other social organizations for forty years. Frank Henderson first moved to Kalamazoo from Dowagiac in 1860 and formed a saddlery business with Charles Brown in 1866. After buying out his partner a few years later, Henderson expanded his business in 1868 by adding uniforms and regalia. Henderson formed a new partnership in 1870 with T. F. Giddings, but the two partners split three years later; Henderson maintained the new regalia division while Giddings kept the saddlery division. Nineteenth Century Growth In 1893, the Henderson-Ames Company was officially formed when Henderson consolidated with the Chicago branch of the Ames Sword Company in Chicopee, Massachusetts. Awarded the medal and diploma for excellence of quality and design at the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago, the company quickly made a name for itself. In 1895, Henderson moved to a new home (Henderson Castle) on West Main Hill overlooking Kalamazoo. He died in 1899, so he did not live to see the scandal that undermined his company following the Spanish-American War. The company had purchased large quantities of unused militia uniforms at salvage prices, and after a few minor alterations, sold them back to the State of Michigan at full price. Twentieth Century Changes The company survived the scandal, and in 1900 built a five-story factory on the corner of W. Main Street (today Michigan Avenue) and N. Park Street. It dominated that intersection until it was razed in 1940. The company manufactured uniforms during World War I, and enjoyed great prosperity in the early part of the twentieth century. By 1924, it maintained over $1 million of business a year, but the great depression took its toll. In 1933, the Henderson-Ames Company merged with another regalia firm, the Lilley Company of Columbus, Ohio, to form the Lilley-Ames Company. Operations were soon moved to Ohio, effectively ending the company’s affiliation with Kalamazoo. Collectors Items The Henderson-Ames Company manufactured uniforms, regalia, ceremonial swords, flags and emblems for fraternal organizations, secret societies, bands, police and fire departments, railroad workers, and even the United States military. Although it has been out of business for more than sixty years, many of its products--particularly its swords-- have become heirlooms and collectors items, which continue to carry the company's legacy all over the world. Written by Kris Rzepczynski, Kalamazoo Public Library Staff, 1998. Updated 14 September 1999.

The company with this name lasted from 1893 tp 1933 so this sword was made prior to 1934. The sword is marked on the crossguard In hoc signo vinces a Latin phrase meaning "In this sign you will conquer", often also rendered in early modern English as "In this sign thou shalt conquer". This phrase on swords were used by Masons – Knights Templars for ceremonies. For it’s age this sword is in good condition only showing some flaking of the nickel plating. The gold plating is fantastic as well as the handgrip and hand guard. This entire piece is 38 inches long in the sheath. It’s a German made sword as evidenced by the bear/lion logo on the ricasso and has some very nice etching on the blade. The Henderson-Ames makers markings are also on the ricasso. The blade itself is just over 30 inches long. This is still a nice piece and is complete with suspension rings. There is no previous owners name etched on the blade or scabbard. For this Ornate piece of Masonic History $195.00

This is a very nice Collector's Quality H&R Automatic Ejection Double action top break revolver made c. 1889-1940 being a five shot .32 S&W caliber. This one has patent dates on the barrel of Apr. 2 '95 and Apr. 7 '95 with a serial number of 110357 so since we are not sure if it was made prior to 1898 we will have to transfer it legally. Total estimated quantity for this model 2 was estimated at 1,300,000 and whatever is left is generally not in this good of condition as this one. This revolver has the 2 7/8th inch barrel which is original and has not been cut. This one has the checkered hard rubber grips with the H&R Target design at the top. The grips are near perfect. This revolver has the company name and location along with the patent dates on the barrel rib. Nothing is stamped on the obverse side of the barrel but on the reverse side of the barrel is PREMIER 32 s&w ctge. The hinge is tight with no wobble and the action works fine. The nickel finish is very good with only an area of light frosting and a few chips that is less than normal. Case color is still highly visible on the hammer and trigger and nearly all the blue is left on the trigger guard. The matching cylinder serial numbers of 357 is also on the ejector and it's normal to use only the last 3 numbers due to space available on these parts. All in all this is an exceptional quality for this model. The barrel has some minor pitting but still has sharp lands and grooves and is shiny. This is a nice one! $275.00

Here we have an excellent condition German WW2 Dagger with two strap hanger. This is a WW2 German Heer Officers Dagger in great condition with the blade marked E.W.HOLLER – SOLINGEN.

Thanks to MILITARYITEMS.COM for this information: German Army Dagger - The german armed forces were very concerned with the appearance of the soldiers. They wanted to ensure that every combatant was proud of being a member of their unit. To that end, the general command deviced a series of items that would make every branch of the service distinctive. The German Army Officer's dagger is one of those items. The high quality construction and beauty of the daggers have made them a desirable military collectible. No other army in the world has ever had the number of variations and complexity in design for daggers as did the German armed forces of the Third Reich.

This one is in excellent condition with 2 strap marked hanger. The grip is orange celluloid and in very nice condition. This one is complete with the sheather which is also in excellent condition! The hanger is marked on the top attachment metal piece O.R.G.M. and so are the bottom attachment pieces. The strap material is silver bullion with green felt on reverse. This is an excellent specimen of German Daggers- To the Victors go the spoils!. For this excellent piece $575.00 Check out the pics!

Here is a dandy 1873 Model Single Action Army in .45 Long Colt. This is a true Cowboy and US Cavalry Revolver as used during that period. The serial number of 784XX dates this particular revolver to 1882. Lots of things going on in the west in 1882!! The revolver has matching serial numbers on the frame, trigger guard, butt strap and cylinder. There is a non- matching number on the loading gate but that may just be a part number. The markings are all clear and sharp on this piece. The barrel has good rifling in it and is 7 ½ inches long. The action works well and every time. The original blue has turned into a dark finish but looks pleasing. There seems to be a small amount of blue present in hidden places like screw heads and the hammer. Only one screw has been burgered up a little. The original Ivory grips are present and are very nice with typical age cracks. These grips are actually more yellow than my pics show. I am sure they were put on the revolver during the period. They have a slight shrinkage due to age but really very nice! Overall this is an excellent example of an Old West Gun that helped tame the West!!! For this fine piece $4500.00

Here is a nice Civil War double-action Starr revolver in .44 caliber. I'm sure that this one has been reblued but was done by someone who knew what they were doing. All the markings are sharp and clear and it looks great! We like to have them with the original bluing on them but at least you can see what it must have looked like when it was issued. The action works great in single and double action. There is very little pitting on this piece. The bore shows a considerable amount of rifling and this piece could be fired today. The bright finished areas ie: loading lever, trigger guard and trigger, backstrap and hammer are finished in the bright and has a trace of a case hardening look to them. The grips are very nice and show dings here and there with 2 nice cartouches. One of the cartouches has been double stamped. The knurled top strap knob is a replacement and needs to be changed with an original . There is no slot in this replacement knob as per the original. One nipple has been changed however the other 5 are originals. There are serial numbers on the front frame and hammer rest but none on the cylinder, however, the cylinder is original. I have owned several Starr revolvers both single action and double action and have never had one with a serial number on the cylinder but I see pics on line that many do. I did not take off the grips to check there for a serial number. This one is numbered 21643. This model was made from the late 1850's through the early 1860's when it was replaced by the Single action revolver. The frame markings are STARR ARMS CO. NEW YORK and STARR'S PATENT JAN. 15, 1856. There are government inspector markings here and there on this piece. I don't think this revolver was restored recently as there is some age and wear to the bluing now. From a S.C. collection.

Here we have a Model 1873 Winchester Lever Action Rifle in .44-40 caliber!!

Winchester 73 toggle-link action

The Model 1873 was one of the most successful Winchester rifles of its day, gaining the reputation as "The Gun that Won the West". Still an icon almost a century and a half later, it was manufactured between 1873 and 1919. Originally chambered for the .44-40 cartridge, it was later produced in .38-40 and /32-20, all of which were also popular handgun cartridges of the day, allowing users to conveniently carry just one type of ammunition. The Model 1873 was produced in three variations: a 24" barrel rifle, 20" barrel carbine, and a "musket" (a term that, at the time, denoted a full length military-style stock, not to be confused with a true smoothbore musket). The easy to transport and handle carbine was the most popular, while the musket accounted for less than 5–10 percent of total production.

This particular weapon is the rifle measureing 43 inches long overall with a 24 inch rifled octagon barrel. The barrel markings are .44 W.C.F. & WINCHESTER'S REPEATING ARMS NEW HAVEN CONN. U.S.A. -KING'S IMPROVEMENT PATENTED MARCH 29, 1866 OCTOBER 16, 1860. Rifling can still be seen down the barrel although it is a bit dark and does have some minor pitting. The receiver has a dark type patina and the usual ding here and there from use. There is a small amount of pitting on the side plate and rear receiver on the reverse. The original dust cover is still present and in good condition. The action is smooth and tight with no wobble to the lever. The dark walnut stocks are in good condition with a ding here and there from use. The cleaning rod is missing from the buttstock but they usually are. The serial number of 3479XXB indicates that this weapon was made in 1890 so no paperwork will have to be done as it is an authentic legal Antique weapon. This is a beautiful gun that was there and was used!!! For this piece $1,995.00

Here we have a decent Civil War Era 1850’s – 1860’s Percussion 12 ga. Double barrel shotgun. These type of guns were actually carried by sportsmen, hunters, farmers and soldiers. The Confederacy actually contracted for double barrel shotguns with some of them having bayonets made for them! I have attached a famous photo of a Confederate Master and Slave that were best friend that went off to war together. As you can see from the photo the black soldier is carrying a double barrel shotgun. I am in no way implying that this shotgun was used by the Confederacy. I have no history on this piece just wanting to show that they were used. This one is in decent shape being 48 inches long overall with 32 inch barrels. The walnut stock is in generally good condition with no breaks that I can see. One of the barrel lock escutcheons is damage and needs replaced. The barrel key is intact as well as the reverse escutcheon. The butt plate is iron. The box locks both work but the reverse one needs a little work as the hammer won’t stay back routinely. The hammers do match. There is some simple floral engraving on the locks but nothing too fancy. This is the 2 trigger model as it should be and the iron trigger guard has the same simple floral engraving on it as the locks do. The wrist of the walnut stock has some hand checkering on it. I can see no makers name on this piece anywhere. The two ramrod thimbles are present being steel however the original ramrod is lacking. Most people just replace it with a walnut dowel rod. All in all this is a good example of a Civil War era shotgun. For this old piece $325.00

It has fixed sights, metal grips (early manufacture in .32 ACP only until serial number 10,980) and an exposed cocking piece that’s kind of like a rounded hammer. The bore is still pretty good with nice grooves. The action works well. I wouldn’t be afraid to shoot this one! All in all it’s a dandy example of an early Semi-Automatic pistol.

This revolver is a double action revolver in good working order. This revolver exhibits about 60% to 65% bluing left.

This is a nice, used, but not abused Winchester Model 12 - 12 ga pump shotgun. The Standard Catalog of Firearms tells me that this model was designed by T.C. Johnson and was the first slide-action hammerless shotgun built by Winchester. This Model 12 enjoyed great success in its 68 year history and over 2,000,000 model 12's were built. Quite a success story! The Model 12 was well made and very popular. All Model 12s were the takedown variety. This Model 12 was dropped from the product line in 1963 but in 1972 the Model 12 was resurrected in their regular production line in 12 ga with a ventilated rib. This one does not have the ventilated rib and is thusly produced before 1963. The serial number of 13703XX shows that this weapon was made before 1963 as well. This firearm has the 30 inch barrel. This is the standard grade shotgun with the grooved slide handle. This shotgun is in generally good condition just showing slight wear from using. The metal finish is very nice with some wear here and there and a few minor scratches. The bore is nice and shiny. The stock is also in good condition with a ding here and there. No cracks and no breaks. This is a nice piece! For this shotgun $495.00

Here we have an old 12 ga double barrel shotgun that is marked HENRY ARMS CO. Henry Arms Co. was a name used on shotguns distributed by H&D Folsom c. 1900. It may have been manufactured by Crescent Firearms, Meriden, CT, or it may have been imported from a Belgian maker. It's lineage is not clear but one thing that is clear is that this shotgun had no relation to the famous Henry Repeating Rifles which were the forerunners of the Winchester lever actions. At any rate this is a good old shotgun and has seen action. It still works fine except that the right hand hammer will not stay back. It catches but pops forward at the slightest inclination. The barrels are fairly tight to the frame. On many of these old shotguns they wobble quite a bit. The metal parts: barrel, triggerguard, tang, hammers are a nice dark patina. The locks are a little less dark but match and I am quite confident that they are original to this piece. The bores are a little dull but I am quite surprised as to how good they are. The walnut stocks are in good condition showing a nice patina and are checkered. The butt plate is plastic. All in all a nice old shotgun! $250.00

This is a new model called the Sidewinder. The sidewinder has the cylinder that pivots out to the side like the bigger revolvers. Up until now you had to pull the front pin and the entire cylinder came out entirely to load so this is quite an improvement. This is a .22 mag and is a great concealed revolver for self protection.

Colt Single Action Army in .45 caliber! Made in 1899!!

The Colt Single Action Army which is also known as the Single Action Army, SAA, Model P, Peacemaker, M1873, and Colt .45 is a single-action revolver with a revolving cylinder holding six metallic cartridges. It was designed for the U.S. government service revolver trials of 1872 by Colt's Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company – today's Colt's Manufacturing Company – and was adopted as the standard military service revolver until 1892.

This revolver was made in 1899 according to the serial number of 1871XX. This revolver has seen good honest use and is in still good condition. All the stampings are nice and sharp and easily read. There is some very minor pitting here and there, as normal, and there is some frosting in the bore as well as some corrosion in the bore but not bad. This is still a shooter and fully functions as it should. The action is actually very tight. The only thing that needs fixed on this piece is the ejector tab on the spring loaded ejector rod. The revolver is a nice dark patina and you can see that the screw heads have not been messed with. Those screws still show color on the heads and there is original color on the trigger guard and on the butt. There is a M scratched on the butt and the owner believes it is the last name ititial of his father who owned this weapon. The last name will be released to the purchaser. The loading gate has 198 on it so I don't know if it's a replacement or not but the patina matches the rest of the gun.This is still a very nice revolver! $3495.00 Has to be transfered by a FFL holder or can go to a C & R licensee.

Here's a Winchester Model 92 (1892) in 25-20 W.C.F. that is in very good condition! This one has the serial number dating it to 1924 of 9359XX. The rifle is in overall very nice condition for a 91 year old rifle! This is a solid frame sporting rifle with a 24 inch round barrel and a full length magazine. This rifle has the plain straight grip walnut stock with capped forearm. This forestock has chips missing on both sides of the cap that I've seen on several of these models so that must be a weakness with them. The action works great being nice and tight with a nice shiny sharp bore in the barrel. The walnut stock is in very nice condition with the usual dings with the exception of the aforementioned forestock, otherwise no cracks or breaks. You can see that damage in the pics. This rifle was used but definitely not abused. All of the markings are sharp and clear. The receiver is a dark plum brown patina while the barrel and mag tube retain most of the original color. There are a few dings in the metal as well but not bad. There is also a little corrosion on the end of the barrel that you can see in the pics. I'm being over critical because this is a beautiful Winchester! This piece is nice!!! $1200.00

Winchester Modle 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine .25-20 made in 1909!!!

Here's a very nice Model 1892 SRC in .25-20! The wood is in good condition but it appears to have been cleaned at some point. I don't believe it has been sanded as it still fits tightly against the metal parts. The color on the receiver is a kind of medium dark silver patina while the barrel and ammo tube retain a lot of color yet. All of the markings are sharp and deep on this carbine. The action works well and is tight. There is good shiny, sharp rifling in the barrel . The model 1892 was built between 1892 and 1932 with slightly more than 1 million sold. The Model 1892 Carbine continued to be sold until 1941. Serial number on this one is 5114XX. This carbine has a 20 inch round barrel, full magazine with plain walnut straight grip stock with one barrel band forearm. Take a look at the pics! $1750.00

Modern Guns 139

This 1926 made Winchester 53 is in 25-20 caliber as indicated by the 4 digit serial number and is in very nice condition. It has a 22 inch round barrel. In 1924, Winchester introduced the Model 53 lever-action rifle as a more modern version of the 1892 Winchester. The Model 53 was available in 44-40, 32-20, and 25-20 calibers. This rifle could be ordered only with a round 22 inch barrel, the forearm smooth, half-magazine, a plain or pistol grip walnut straight-grip stock, and shotgun butt. The frame and barrel were blued and had either a solid or takedown feature. This rifle has the solid feature.

The Model 53 was manufactured through 1932 with approximately 25,000 guns produced during the 8-year production period. The Model 53 was discontinued along with several other Winchester models because it could just not compete in sales with the 1894 and the impact of the Great Depression on Winchester Arms.

This lever action firearm is in very nice condition with the usual dings from use. Heck, it's 89 years old so it should have some dings on it! The receiver has a nice dark brown patinas as does the lever. The barrel is mostly original color with wear on the edges of the end of the barrel. All of the markings are sharp and clear. The action works flawlessly and the action is tight. The rifling down the barrel is very sharp and shiny. The walnut stocks are in very nice condition as well and are dark from age. The edges of the stock are sharp and fit well indicating that this stock was never sanded or refinished. This is an excellent Winchester Rifle!!! $1 750.00

U.S. Military Tactical Grouping including 9MM Beretta. The Beretta M9, officially the Pistol, Semiautomatic, 9mm, M9, is a 9×19mm Parabellum pistol adopted by the United States Armed Forces in 1985. It is essentially a military specification Beretta 92FS.

This is a very nice example of the Beretta pistol made in 1998 that has replaced grips, barrel and slide assembly, some internal springs, and some of the parts that had finish wear. It had a 92FS slide on it that had finish wear, so it was replaced with an M9 slide (the same part – different markings). The slide is military (see the PM marking). The military M9s will have U.S. marked on the frame. The slide is marked with the PM and military part number. The civilian M9 slide doesn’t have the PM marking. Check out the following websites: http://www.inetres.com/gp/military/infantry/pistol/M9.html http://www.gunauction.com/buy/8721355 http://militaryarms.blogspot.ca/2012/05/civilian-m9-pistol.html The slide is marked U.S. 9mm M9-P. BERETTA-65490 with a PB in a circle on one side and ASSY9346442-65490 on the other side with a newer stamped PM which is inspectors initials. This PM stamp was stamped on the slide after the firearm was finished as there is no finish inside the stamp which indicates The trigger guard is stamped with a large P in a shield.

This is a very nice example of the Beretta M9 at any rate. The slide is marked U.S. 9mm M9-P. BERETTA-65490 with a PB in a circle on one side and ASSY9346442-65490 on the other side with a newer stamped PM which is the military inspectors initials. This PM stamp was stamped on the slide after the firearm was finished as there is no finish inside the stamp. The trigger guard is stamped with a large P in a shield.

This particular weapon is in excellent condition with just slight finish wear here and there as shown in the photos. The action works great and all the markings are clear and sharp. The bore is excellent as well. The grouping includes 3 - 15 round magazines , the military laynard ring, the tactical magazine pouches and the tactical leg holster. This is a nice outfit with everything for one money! Take a look at the pics! $545.00

12. Here we have a Marlin 39A lever action rifle. The Marlin 39A represents the oldest and longest continuously produced shoulder firearm in the world. The Golden Model 39A started life as the Marlin Model 1891, the first lever action rifle ever chambered in .22 long rifle and the magazine was loaded through a conventional side gate in the receiver. The tubular magazine was changed to front-loading with the Model 1892, due to the difficulties of the receiver feeding the small rimfire round. The 1892 gave way to the takedown Model 1897, which became the Model 39 in 1921 and Model 39-A in 1937. This particular rifle has the serial number of C122XX making this the 3rd model variation. According to the Marlin Collectors website when a serial number starts with C then this rifle was made in 1946. This particular rifle has seen use but is still solid as a rock and preforms flawlessly. There are a few dings and scratches to the urethane finish but no cracks or breaks in the Walnut stocks. Most of the bluing is present on this pice but right over the Marlin info on the barrel this rifle was drilled and tapped for a scope as you can see in the pics partially obscuring the Marlin name. The finish on the receiver and lever are very nice. The hammer has the wide WILLIAMS thumb rest on it because the scope is right above it. The scope is a very nice Carl Zeiss 4 X 32 scope from Germany. Really nice optics! The rifling is also very nice. This rifle comes with a very nice "Boyt" strap. For this piece $395.00

Here we have a fairly scarce Smith and Wesson model 12 (.38 Militiary and Police Airweight) with 2 inch barrel. The Model 12 was introduced in 1952, starting serial number was C223999 (this one is C2326XX) and is merely a Model 10 with a lightweight alloy frame and cylinder. In 1954 the alloy cylinder was replaced with one of steel that added an additional 4 ounces of weight. This model is the same model as the USAF M-13 (Aircrewman) revolver but that one starts at the serial number range of C247000 so this one is made just prior to that model and before 1954. This revolver is in generally good condition overall and appears to have not been used much. The grips have been replace with pearl like plastic? grips but they look nice. The action works well in both double and single action and the revolver seems to be in time. The barrel is the 2 inch short barrel as it should be and the rifling is good with spots. This is a 6 shot revolver. All of the markings are very legible . You can see a bit of corrosion in the finish near the obverse grip near the smith and wesson logo. You definitely don't see this model often. This is a collector's item and I don't know if I would shoot it or not since it is entirely lightweight alloy. According to STANDARD CATALOG OF SMITH & WESSON by Jim Supica & Richard Nahas there is a " slight premium for it being nickel and the Early production with alloy cylinder worth premium but should not be fired. " Actually on page 178 of that book it says "up to double value for alloy cylinder (do not shoot)". Most were returned for a steel cylinder but this one was not. For this scarce model with the original alloy cylinder $575.00

Here's a very nice vintage Armalite AR-180 Howa Manufactured weapon! The AR-18 is a gas operated, selective fire assault rifle chambered for 5.56x45mm ammunition. The AR-18 was designed at ArmaLite in California by Arthur Miller, George Sullivan, and Charles Dorchester in 1963 as an improved alternative to the AR-15 design, which had just been selected by the U.S. military as the M16. While the AR-18 was never adopted as the standard service rifle of any nation, its production licence was sold to companies in Japan and England, and it is said to have influenced many later weapons such as the British SA80, the Singaporean SAR-80 and SR-88, the Austrian Steyr AUG, and the Heckler and Koch G36. It gained some notoriety through its use by the Provisional IRA, which allegedly christened it the "Widowmaker"

This is the Howa Manufactured weapon (Nagoya, Japan which also made the WW2 Japanese Arisaka rifles) which was made from 1972-73 making it the most desireable of the 3 manufacturers. This particular weapon is in very good condition and is missing nothing and needs nothing. This weapon will not be shipped to California. The rifle has the original sling and one 30 round magazine. It also is a folding stock. This is nice!!! $1,950.00

Here we have an old Stevens Boy's Rifle. This one is part of the 'Favorites' series. This series of Rifles are chambered for the .22, .25 and .32 rimfire. It has a 22" part octagonal barrel and was blued with a case colored frame now a very dark patina. It has a takedown-type action with an interchanable barrel feature. It has no rear sight and never had one and just a simple bead front sight. There were approximately 1,000,000 manufactured between 1893 and 1939 of the various types. I believe this is a no. 20 version that is chambered for the .22 rimfire shot cartridges and has a smoothbore barrel hence no rear sight. This old girl needs some wood work, especially with the rear buttstock. The buttstock is loose from side to side due to an old lateral crack that someone tried to fill in with plastic wood. It's restorable!!! The buttstock still has the old rubber STEVENS FAVORITE buttplate present.

Here we have an old model 1890 .22 Caliber Winchester "Gallery Gun". The Model 1890 was the first slide-action rifle ever produced by Winchester. This one is chambered for the .22 short only. This gun is the Second Model (blued frame variation) and the serial number is 190XXX range. It has a 24 inch octagonal barrel. The markings are still real clear. The action works well and there is just a trace of rifling in the barrel. The rear sight has been replaced as well as the front sight with modern pieces. The front slide forarm is the original but the pin has been replaced and plastic wood has been placed around the pin. The buttstock has suffered more serious trauma with a large crack running back from the tang. This appears to have happened some time ago and thre has been some attempt at repairing it. There is quite a bit of plastic wood applied to the buttstock that you can see in the pics. Still worthy of restoration and quite desireable as a collectors piece. These Model 1890's were favorites at the Fairs and Carnivals to be used as Shooting Gallery Guns. The Model 1890 was produced form 1890 to 1932 with approximately 775,000 guns being sold. $430.00

SHOW AND TELL - NOT FOR SALE! Here's something that I just got from a friend. He found this when cleaning out an old house years ago. This is actually an invitation to the 3rd Annual 72nd Indiana Wilder's Brigade Re-Union in Lafayette, Indiana on Sept. 21, 22 & 23rd 1881 but folded out and laying flat it looks like a nice broadside! Unfolded it's just about 8 X 10 inches in size and has been printed in 3 colors. I can't tell you how rare it is to have this piece as most did not survive!

Here is an unusual item that was given to me and is in no way for sale. This is a recycled headstone for Nelson H. Lindsey Co. B, 17th Indiana Mounted Infantry- Wilder's Brigade! This headstone was dug up at a home between the sidewalk and the curb. The headstone had the wrong death date on it so it was probably discarded due to the wrong date on it. The headstone has a depression carved into the limestone with a groove carved into it leading to a hole and was used for a primitive splash block for a gutter! Nelson died on February 15th, 1864 but this headstone was marked as him having died on February 22nd. The top of the stone was sawed off and not broken off. He probably died in Nashville, TN as they had just left Charleston in January. There are some unusual things that you run into out there! This is not or will never be for sale. I just wanted to share it with you all! Catalog 1-125

SOLD!!! SOLD!!! SOLD!!! Here's a half plate image that's actually a later copy of the original and is on think type paper. I really think that this is a late 1800's or early 1900's copy of the original. I believe this to be a gelatin silver print as there is a silver sheen to the image when viewed. The gelatin silver process is the photographic process used with currently available black-and-white films and printing papers. A suspension of silver salts in gelatin is coated onto a support such as glass, flexible plastic or film, baryta paper, or resin-coated paper. These light-sensitive materials are stable under normal keeping conditions and are able to be exposed and processed even many years after their manufacture. This is in contrast to the collodion wet-plate process dominant from the 1850s–1880s, which had to be exposed and developed immediately after coating. The gelatin silver process was introduced by Richard Leach Maddox in 1871 with subsequent considerable improvements in sensitivity obtained by Charles Harper Bennet in 1878. Research over the last 125 years has led to current materials that exhibit low grain and high sensitivity to light. Still a very nice subject and not a process that was done yesterday. $35.00 No backmarks or any other markings that I can see. item photography 45

SOLD! Here is the 3rd image from that grouping and it's an album page mounted full standing tintype, being approximately 1/6th plate, of a soldier holding his musket with bayonet affixed. He's also wearing his small black hat and clearly shows his accroutrement plates. His US belt plate shows backwards which is normal for a tintype. This image is outstanding against the photographers backdrop. The reverse has the 2 cent Andrew Jackson 'Black Jack' stamp that has been cancelled. The 2 cent stamp was issued in 1863. This is definitely a field taken photograph and should be able to be traced by the backdrop. The stamp was issued to fulfill a need for a reduced rate, 2-Cent denomination for newspaper, magazine, and local deliveries; and was often used to "make up" higher rates, or split in half to make up lower ones (a 1-Cent stamp) due to shortages at the local post office. The Confederates also used this stamp but it was printed in red. They didn't like the North using a likeness of one of their Heros! This stamp has value on it's own. But back to the photograph. This photograph shows this soldier wearing a longer frock coat that was replaced in 1863 by the shorter shell jackets. I believe Wilder's Brigade received new Spencer Rifles in 1863 so this image was taken before they got their new Spencer Rifles and the shorter jackets. This is one outstanding photograph of, what I believe, to be of a 17th Indiana Soldier. For this fine piece. $375.00 or I can make a better deal on all three as a grouping. item photography 36

Here are an early pair of 40 & 8 Medals in a riker case.

The Forty and Eight is an organization of veterans of the United States armed forces. Its official name is "La Société des Quarante Hommes et Huit Chevaux," which is French, and translates as "The Society of Forty Men and Eight Horses."

The organization (also known as "La Société") can trace its roots back to 1920, when Joseph W. Breen and 15 other members of the American Legion, who were veterans of World War I, came together and founded it as an honor society for certain Legion members. The title "40&8" comes from the box cars that were used to transport troops to the front in France. Each car had the emblem 40/8 stenciled on the sides, which meant that it could carry 40 men or 8 horses. These cars were known as forty-and-eights. They were seen by the troops as a miserable way to travel, and the new organization was thus called the 40&8 in an attempt to make some light of the common misery they had all shared. In 1929 it was described as "the fun-making organization of the American Legion." In 1959 the 40&8 became independent of the American Legion, although still required membership in the American Legion. In 2008 the 40&8 dropped the membership requirement in the American Legion. Take a look at the medals and you can see the boxcars with a horse and a soldier in it with a French Soldier standing guard. These medals are the old ones from the 1920's and probably owned by a WW1 veteran. Sorry I don't have the veterans info. For the pair in the case $65.00

Item No. 42

SOLD!!! Here we have a WWII GERMAN EASTERN FRONT MEDAL THAT IS DATED ON THE BACK 1941-42

The Eastern Front of World War II (der Rußlandfeldzug 1941–1945 (Russian campaign) or der Ostfeldzug 1941-1945 (Eastern Campaign)) was a theatre of war between the European Axis powers, Germany, Italy, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Croatia and Finland (not an Axis member), and the Soviet Union which encompassed central and eastern Europe from 22 June 1941 to 9 May 1945. Nazi propaganda dubbed the conflict Battle for Survival against Bolshevism or a Crusade against Bolshevism. Operation Barbarossa was the code name for Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union during World War II that began on 22 June 1941. Hitler wanted to recognize soldiers who fought in this campaign. He authorized the use of a medal. Also known as the "frozen meat" medal, the medal for the winter campaign on Russia . This medal was instituted in May 26th, 1942. While most of them that I saw for sale has a ribbon this one has a stud and a clutchback on it. For this piece $5.00

THE SHOTGUN BELOW IS SOLD !!!

A GOOD PIEPER DOUBLE-BARRELED SHOTGUN MADE BEFORE 1898!

Here is a good Pieper Belgium made Double-barrel shotgun in 12 guage that was made before 1898. The barrel hinge is very tight with only a small notice of a wobble to it. The barrels are laminated steel barrels so I wouldn't fire it unless you have it checked out by a competent gunsmith. The entire shotgun is 43 inches long with a 26 5/8 inch barrel. This one could have easily been a stagecoach gun at this length. The walnut stock is very good with a ding here and there but no breaks and the wrist is checkered. The metal parts are dark patina. The locks work well and are marked PIEPER ARMS Co BELGIUM. One hammer screw has been replaced with a smaller screw so most likely the original screw head was broken off so the broken screw in the tumbler was drilled out for a smaller screw. Hammers and lockplates match. Still works however and a competent gunsmith can back out the old screw and put in a proper one if you desire. Take a look at the pics. $250.00 Item weapons 013

THE SAW IS SOLD !!!

Here we have an amputation saw made by Sklar and it's also marked 64. Sklar came into business around 1891 and are still in business today. I believe this old amputation saw to have been made from the 1890's until 1920 or so. This one is quite typical of amputation saws having a plated brass frame and polished blade. This blade has old rusting on the polished blade and some would try to tell you that blood did this to the blade but how would one know that for sure. Surely they cleaned up these saws before putting them away. I'm sure it was just in a wet or moist enviornment. The brass frame has the old nickel plating on it and not the good electroplating of today. I worked in a plating show for 3 years as a foreman many years ago. This is the same type of old nickel plating on the old 1880's revolvers or saturday night specials of the day. This would still look good in a display and does fit in the late Indian Wars, Span Am War or WW1 display display. For this piece $120.00 Item Weapons 92

RARE WURLITZER MARKED FIFE!

This is a rare one for me. I ususally get lots of fifes that come into the shop. Some are unmarked and most are marked CROSBY. This is the first one that I have had marked WURLITZER in over 20 years in the business and over 30 years in the hobby! They may be more common in other parts of the country but they are not here. This fife is over 14 1/2 inches long, being made of hardwood. There is no signs of damage however I believe there was a cheater on this piece as one time due to the shadows around the mouth hole. The ends are capped with 1 inch decorative brass ferrels. Wirlitzer fifes were made from 1820 to 1860 so this one could have seen action in the Mexican American War in 1848 or the Civil War. No one knows and I certainly don't. Woodwind instruments have been made by the Wurlitzer family since Johann Friedrich Wurlitzer (1801-1878) began making fifes in Wernitzgriin in 1820. For a complete history of the company see Enrico Weller's excellent three-part series, 'Die Wurlitzers,'in the German woodwind magaznne, 'rohrblatt (March 1995, June 1995 and September 1995).

This fife is a dandy! For this one $225.00 More Stuff 63

Original CSA marked coat button that I believe was used post war for reunions since it's backmarked by Waterbury. I sure Waterbury marked buttons weren't sold to the South during the war.

THE Fife Below is SOLD! 5. This last wooden fife is real nice being smaller at 14 1/2 inches long with 7/8 inch brass end caps. There are no markings on this piece but the finish is very nice. The piece is slightly warped but there are no cracks and it should play very nicely! $145.00 Catalog 1-72

THE Fife Below is SOLD! 6. This last fife is an all metal fife that was used before the Civil War and after as well. This one was most likely used after the war into the 1870's 1880's and 1890's as it is nickel plated. There is no country of origin on it so I believe it was made before 1890. This piece is 15 1/4 inches long and the plating has been worn through to the brass at the finger holes and where the thumb would have rested. There has been a modern 'cheater' added to the piece as some point. Still a nice piece! $95.00 Catalog 1-73

THE Fife Below is SOLD! 1. the first one is a very nice single keyed fife with an original pewter 'cheater' at the blowhole.

THE FLAGS ARE SOLD !!!

I just ran across a very small cache of 'Stars and Bar's CS Lapel type silk flags. The edges are not bound on these flags that measure about 2 inches long by 1 1/2 inches wide. They are affixed to a small wooden shaft with a 'Golden' ball type finial on top. I have 12 of them with 10 of them being entirely flat and 2 that are in a book to try to flatten out. They are all in pretty goood condition. I can just see them sticking out of an old Confederate's lapel button hole at a reunion! Each only $15.00 Catalog 1-49

Here's a Civil War Era Bass Drum that I picked up from a gentleman from Indianapolis. This is a 14 3/4 inch by 24 inch drum that seems to have a walnut shell and perhaps the rims are maple. This is a rope drum and does not have the metal hooks that sometimes go over the rims. The rope tension snare drums were made of the skin of an animal's head stretched over the open end of a cylinder-shaped wooden shell. The edge of the skin was soaked and then lapped (tucked) around circular flesh hoops. The flesh hoops were held in place by wooden counter hoops, and the tension of the wooden counter-hoops controlled the tension on the heads. They used leather braces, known as "ears," to adjust the tension. The shell of the rope tension drum was made of several different types of plywood. Ash, rosewood, white holly, and maple are a few examples of the different types. This example has the tension rope broken in one spot leaving a hole with no rope in it. Also, the leather ears are kind of hard with 3 of them broken. Also, there is no makers lable on the inside. The heads are in good condition showing water spots but no tears or breaks. There is a hook in the shell for attaching the drum strap. These drums were popular with the military as well as the various militia groups and bands of the era. There is no writing or other indication of who used this nice rope tension drum. A nice Display Piece !!! Catalog 1-56

SOLD! I'm doing some research on this next item. This item is a Civil War Flag Staff topper or finial. There was one sold by Roger Steffen Militaria in Newport, Kentucky listed as a Civil War Captured Confederate Flag Staff and Finial and was id'd. I would appreciate any information anyone has concerning this flag top. If anyone knows the manufacturer just let me know. This piece is so unique that it could have just been build by one manufacturer so I'd like to find out. This piece is really hefty 3 lbs 10.2 ozs. It's also 13 1/2 inches tall and nearly 4 1/2 inches across the bit. The flagstaff socket is about 2 5/8 inches long and fits a 1 inch staff. The round disk above the staff socket has 2 holes in it which may have held a halyard. If you are familiar with this piece I would really appreciate hearing from you. Thanks for your help!!!

TWO CANNON PROJECTILES JUST PICKED UP FROM A COLLECTION!

THE GRAPESHOT SOLD! The first one is a small grapeshot that measures about 2 inches across and weighs about 1 pound. The piece has a nice patina to it. It's in excellent condition and came with the Revolutionary War 4 Inch 9 pound solid shot below. $15.00 Catalog 1-05a

THE REV WAR CANNONBALL BELOW IS SOLD! The next one is a bit different from the one above. This one is a Revolutionary War era 4 inch 9 pound solid shot. This one came from Indiana as the one above did with no history. This one is solid iron and someone has crudely engraved the initials in it of DET and this was done after the cannon ball had pitted so I'm sure it's the initials of the person who recovered it. A great variety of different size solid shot and cannonballs were used by the Americans. They ranged in diameter from 7" to 2" and reflect the supply problem. This one shows an excellent uncleaned dark patina and pitting. The pitting is what you would expect to see from a piece that was excavated and is not that severe. Nice early piece!!! $295.00 Catalog 1-05b

The action works fine and the bore is also fine. All the markings are sharp. There is a ding here and there and some very minor scratches. Most of the original blue is remaining with just a spot into the finish here and there. The receiver is grooved for a scope. This is the sporting rifle with a 25 inch barrel.

THE LITTLE ACE .22 IS SOLD!!! LITTLE ACE .22 SINGLE SHOT PISTOL!

When I first saw this little pistol I thought it was an antique from the 1800's but it's not. This little piece was made by R.L. SVENDSEN F.A. MFG CO. in Itasca, Illinois during the 1960's. This diminutive derringer consists of a brass frame and was originally blued but now showing age with black wooden birdshead type grips. It measures approximately 3-3/4 inches overall length, with a 2 inch round to octagonal barrel. It takes a .22 short and the barrel pivots sideways for loading. The action works fine.

This is the Model 1A and is serial numbered 37774. These little pistols were made from 1859 to 1874 with quantities made in the many thousands. The markings are sharp and the firing pin rotates as it should. When the barrel release is pushed it releases as it should and slides completely forward and off . The barrels are 2 1/2 inches long as they should be for a .22 caliber. The barrels were original blue now lacking but have been replace by a dark plum color. The hammer still has blue on it. The brass frame is in good condition but now lacking any silver plating. The grips are the original walnut grips and are in fine condition. This is a nice little pepperbox pistol! $750.00 Item weapons 029

THIS ONE IS SOLD! Here's a little pistol of about .30 caliber percussion that was found in Ohio.

THE SWORD PARTS ARE SOLD! Here's something you don't find every day. If you're looking to restore a model 1840 heavy cavalry sword then you might need these parts. This is a brass hand guard, pommel cap and grip for the 1840 heavy cav sword. I believe they are for the European import as I cannot find any US inspector markings on them. There is 8M 476 stamped on the handguard but that's all. The branches have been removed on the handguard for some reason and there is some damage on the pommel cap that you can see in the pics but the grip is still in pretty good shape and you'll never find another one on the loose again. This one still has the original leather grip covering on it. I can't tell if it has the cord under the leather or the grooved wooden grip but I won't damage it to find out so I'll just assume that it's the European one with the cord. At any rate it's rare to find! $125.00 Another customer pointed out that they may be 1860 Cutlass parts. Item Weapons- 134

THIS ONE SOLD! Here is a very well aged leather shot pouch that has a Union Shield on the front. This leather shot pouch is well used with repairs to the seams and a piece of wire holding the spout to the leather body. This is a fine example of what the soldier armed with a shotgun had to carry for ammo that he used. Of course, civilians carried shot pouches as well but I believe it's a bit unusual to have the patriotic shield on the front for a sportsman. This old pouch still has some shot in it. The leather is still supple. This would display well with a military used shotgun! $65.00 Item Weapons- 13

THE DUG KNIFE BELOW IS SOLD! Here is a large dug Confederate Bowie Knife from the Pierre Cayla Collection. A 7 inch ruler was placed alongside it for comparison.

The Rebs won this one!! The knife has been stablized and has a somewhat of an elipitical blade with a clip point. The grip was rivited on.

Here we have a J.E.B. Stuart Saber Attachment for the sword belt. Designed by the later-famous Confederate cavalry leader J.E.B. Stuart immediately prior to the Civil War. This unique saber attachment was patented by the Stuart in October 1859. Previously recommended for Army adoption by a board of cavalry officers. The War Department purchased the rights to produced this hanger with its spring-loaded catch for easy detachment of the saber and hanger from the saber belt. The Saber attachment is NOT the spring-loaded type, but is a simplified hook form only, and is known as the model 1881/1885, and was used through out the Indian Wars, The Spanish American War, and the Philippine Insurrection. The M81/85 was also used with the M1906 Cavalry saber. The importance of this quickly detachable saber attachment is often over looked by those unfamiliar with cavalry tactics. Until the motorization of the cavalry, the primary mode of fighting was dismounted and the saber was of almost no value and a great handicap to movement. The short and long straps were attached to the carrying rings of the model 1860 light model cavalry saber, and the brass hook attached to a brass ring held on the lower edge of the Mills woven cartridge belt. On the early hangers the leather was died black, those used in The Spanish American wars were died brown. Leather is pretty nice with no breaks, tears or repairs. The numbers '35' are stamped into the short strap. Brass has a nice mellow patina. A super display item for your Civil War Cavalry saber. For this piece $85.00 New Arrivals 268

THE WODGON FLINTLOCK PISTOLS BELOW ARE SOLD! This is a wonderful cased reproduction set of the .54 Caliber Wodgon Flintlock dueling pistols used by Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr in their historic and tragic duel in 1804. This set is one of the limited number of suthentic sets commissioned by the U.S. Bicentennial Commission in 1976. These pistols were copied from the originals by famed Italian Gunsmith Walter Agnoletto. These pistols are like new in unfired condition. The erial numbers on the guns are 307A and 307B. These guns were found at an estate and since the relatives couldn't find a key they had to break open the chest. I believe the case can be easily repair and a new lock put in. I've found this set being offered on the market for many thousands of dollars but since the case is damaged and missing a couple of pieces you can have this set for $1,450.00. Original sets of these pistols are worth over $20,000!! These are bound to go up in value.

THE AUSTRIAN BAYONET BELOW IS SOLD !!!

We thought this was an Austrian Lorenz socket bayonet in it's original scabbard. I have tried this bayonet on an Austrian Musket and could not get it to fit and after further research with a fellow collector it was discovered that there were 3 different bridge types for this musket according to the sight on the front of the barrel. I would have to find the right Lorenz musket to fit this bayonet. This is a nice piece with age and comes with the European-type scabbard described in the book as well. There is a 7 stamped on the blade while there is also a V and a swage mark stamped on the shank of a raised 6 point star or swage in an oval. Other than that there are no markings to tell about.

WW2 IMPERIAL JAPANESE BUGLE WITH CHARACTER MARKINGS!

Here is a nice WW2 Imperial Japanese Army Bugle with Japanese Character Markings. The bugle is 11 1/2 inches long from the mouthpiece to the outer bell. The bell is reinforced with a brass collar and one can see the manufacture seam about 3 inches back of the bell.

Here we have a nice well used U.S. Model 1841 .69 caliber musket and bayonet. This is a smoothbore and was never rifled hence no rear sight. This one was made at Harpers Ferry Armory and is a single shot muzzleloader with a 42" round barrel secured by three barrel bands. You can see that the bayonet has been on this piece forever as there is hardly any patina under where the bayonet fits on the end of the barrel. The bayonet and the rest of the firearm has a matching dark pleasant patina. This musket has iron mountings with a trumpet shaped head on the original steel ramrod. The bayonet lug is on the bottom of the barrel at the muzzle. This piece has a nice but dinged up walnut stock with comb. This piece has obviously been used and you can see the dings and wood loss in the photos. The lockplate is marked with an American Eagle motif above US forward of the hammer and HARPERS FERRY 1846 at the tail of the lockplate. 1849 is the date on the barrel as well as the eagle head and proved markings. I do not see any cartouches on the stock. The reverse buttstock has an 'A' carved into it and near the back of the lock has a '2' stamped in it. The action works as it should and is crisp and the nipple is in good condition as well. This is a very nice example of the musket used early during the Civil War. For this piece with bayonet $1750.00

Here we have a Civil War Spencer Carbine serial number 205XX. This serial number in the Springfield Research Book shows that serial number 20592 and 20601 were issued to the 12th Illinois Cavalry so there is good reason to believe that this one also could have gone to them. These carbines were made c. 1862 to 1865 being a 52 caliber rimfire with a 22 inch barrel that had six groove rifling. The rifling is still present but the bore is somewhat dark with some corrosion. There is a sling swivel at the butt and a sling ring bar with ring on the left side; short forend fastened by single barrel band. There were approximately 50,000 manufactured with serial numbers from 11000 to 61000. This particular firearm is in good condition and has definitely saw action. The metal surfaces all exhibit a dark patina and so does the wood. The buttstock does have some shrinkage cracks in it due to the cartridge tube running through the buttstock. The action works fine. The markings are mostly clean. The rear sight has been changed probably because the original was knocked loose during use. The forearm is in good condition and fastened by the bottom screw and secured by a single barrel band. The front block/blade sight is present and original. If you want one that was there and done that then this is for you. For this good ol' Civil War Union carbine $2500.00

This old gun is in pretty good condition with no breaks in the wood, just a couple of small age cracks and the usual dings from use. The barrels are damascus and are 30 inches long. The locks and hammers match but AMERICAN GUN CO. NEW YORK is only stamped on one lockplate. This piece is fairly tight and functions as it should. Take a look at the pics! It's a dandy! $325.00

This sword is an unmarked Confederate saber that has a flat blade. The entire piece is about 39 inches long with a 33 + inch long slightly curved blade. The blade is 1/4 inch thick at the hilt. The blade is in generally good shape with some very minor pitting near the tip and ricasso and a couple of edge nicks. The edge has not been sharpened and is rather blunt. It has an edge on it but it is blunt. The handguard and pommel cap are sand cast and rather rough although it was cleaned somewhat a few years ago. It looks like the pommel cap has never been messed with but a piece of copper was driven in on one side to tighten it up. It must have wobbled a bit. The original leather grip is present and mostly there with a few worn through spots and a double twist brass wire wrap on it. Take a look at the pics. This piece is unique! NOTE!!!

This bayonet is an Unknown Confederate Sword Bayonet No. 118 in THE AMERICAN BAYONET 1776-1964 by Albert N. Hardin Jr. This bayonet mostly conforms to the one listed in the book on page 139. This bayonet has a 18 ¾ (tip broken off) blade and has an unstopped fuller of approximately 16 inches long. This is a dug piece but we do not know where it was dug. The latch mechanism is broken and the all brass hilt has many casting flaws making us believe that it is probably Southern Manufacture. It has a thick muzzle ring and does resemble the Model 1862 Remington Zouave Sword Bayonet but also has differences that are quite noticeable, for one is the poorly cast brass hilt is rather heavily proportioned with relation to the small, more slender blade design. The cast brass hilt is 4 13/16 inches long. The thick upper guard is somewhat unusual in that it is canted to the rear at a slight angle. There are no hilt markings. $450.00
