    ACRYLIC SWORD & SCABBARD STAND: This pair of acrylic sword & scabbard stands was designed to hold one sword and its scabbard. Each is 5 inches tall and designed with square edge groves to prevent the sword or scabbard from flipping over as often happens with similar stands with a rounded cut. They will accommodate swords of all sized from small bowie knives to cavalry sabers.  This design presents a very clean and crisp display that is attractive. $27.00

    CS-SASH. CONFEDERATE HOMESPUN OFFICERS’ SASH: This is a rare example of a Confederate Homespun Officers’ sash. I found this at a show in Mississippi where I also purchased a Boyle & Gamble Cavalry Officers’ saber. The sash is 84 inches long with a red field with blue and green vertical stripes. In some areas the cloth is thin, but overall, it is in amazing condition. This will complement any Confederate Officers’ uniform. $1500.00

    U890. TIFFANY (UNMARKED) MODEL 1860 CAVALRY OFFICERS’ SABER: This is an unmarked Tiffany Model 1860 Cavalry Officers’ saber, which combines the featured of their #1, #3 and #4 sabers designs. The 1860 type hilt is presentation grade with deep casting and chased design with a raised relief eagle on the quillon. The grip is 100% original sharkskin with double strand wire. It is held tight to the blade with the original blade washer. The blade is Collins & Co. marked, and etched with a large US and eagle. The steel scabbard has ornate brass mounts deeply cast and chased, and an equally ornate matching drag. John H. Thillmann’s book “Civil War Cavalry & Artillery Sabers, pages 428-433 shows the features for this saber. $2700.00

    U891. MODEL 1840 CAVALRY OFFICERS’ SABER – JAMES S. SMITH, NY. This is a rarely seen variant of the Model 1840 Cavalry Officers’ saber retailed by James S. Smith, New York, NY. Smith immigrated to New York from England in 1834, and this saber has design traits of an English saber. He was in business 1838-1860 as James S. Smith and as Smith & Sons 1860-1863. The brass hilt has a smaller 2-branch design with an ornate back strap and fancy pommel cap. The grip is original shark skin with triple strand wire. The original red leather blade washer holds the 35 1/2-inch blade tight. The blade has a brass PROVE mark in center of a Damascus star and retailer marked, and fancifully etched with US and other military motifs. The steel scabbard has a deep rich brown patina and simples but unique ring mounts with brass rings. The top ring shows good wear! This is saber style not found in many collections. $2500.00

    F285. COLT MODEL 1860 ARMY REVOLVER: This is a Colt model 1860 Army Revolver with all matching serial number #55061. It is 1 of 500 sent to and received by LTC G. D. Ramsay, Washington DC July 23, 1862. Ramsay's was the commander of the Washington Arsenal. The gun has a brown finish; all original screws; all original nipples; original grips with a faint cartouche on the right side; tight action, and I believe a period replaced front site. Early Civil War Colt Army Revolves with all matching parts are hard to find. $1500.00

    U892. MID-1820’s PERIOD UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS OFFICER’S MAMELUKE SWORD:  This sword was recently discovered in Virginia and is one of the earlies examples of the United States Marine Corps Officer’s Mameluke sword I have seen. It may even pre-date the swords official adoption by the Marine Corps in 1825. Looking at the style of the blade and the scabbard, it has similar characteristics of swords made by Nathan Starr. The hilt is steel with ivory grips with a cross-guard with plain eggcorns at the end and floral rivets. As is common with these grips, they often crack and are missing a piece at the top where the sword hit the officer's body and sword rig. This one is also missing the metal ring for the sword knot and one rivet. The pipe-back blade is mint with amazing etching and shaped like a Starr blade. The Steel scabbard also looks to be made by Nathan Starr with the rings attached to the top of the scabbard with chase work to simulate the ring bands, and a drag common to Starr sabers. This is an extremely rare sword! $7500.00

    C380. CONFEDERATE SIDE KNIFE with ORIGINAL LEATHER & TIN SHEATH: This is a rare find, a large Confederate side knife with an original leather sheath in an outer tin scabbard. The knife is 21 inches long with a 15 1/2-inch clip point blade, which is very heavily made with casting flaws and fill marks. The tip is missing. The wood grip is tight with a pewter ferrule near the steel guard. The leather sheath is original to the blade and once had a belt loop, and is opened along the blade’s edge. The tin scabbard is made to fit the knife while the leather sheath is in it; you can see how the tin has rubbed off onto the leather. This is an amazing and rare example of a large Confederate side knife! $3800.00
