    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 and yet inexpensive. One pair free with a sword purchase, or for sale. $27.00

    C287. ISAAC & Co. CONFEDERATE SABER: This is an Isaac & Co. Model 1853 cavalry saber, which the Confederate government purchased in England during the War Between the States. When you look at these sabers, always look to see it the Isaac & Co. mark is on the spine of the blade near the guard. This saber has that marks. The hilt has a nice patina and is tight, and the pressed leather grip show wear, but is very nice. The blade has a nice even patina and is fairly bright with no nicks or rust. The scabbard has an even brown patina with several dings and dents’, indicating it was carried. The scabbard did its job of protecting the blade. The last one I sold went for $4000.00; however, this is available for less. $3100.00

    C290. CONFEDERATE FOOT OFFICER SWORD:  This is a classic Confederate manufactured version of the non-regulation Model 1850 foot officer's sword. It is a style that would have been worn by company grade Confederate officers, and is a variation not often encountered. The blade is full-length at 29-3/4 inches with a long single fuller going down each side. The guard is similar to the double branch style manufactured by  Boyle & Gamble, but much cruder in construction. You can see on the front and back of the hand guard they tried to add a floral design, but it blurred. It has a wooden core with the black leather, but the double twist brass wire is missing. The brass hand guard and the pommel cap each have the gorgeous thick attic patina look. The scabbard has a nice look and fit well to the sword with matching patina. $4300.00

    C251. COLUMBUS, GEORGIA NAVAL IRON WORKS D-GUARD CUTLASS: The D-Guard knife shown here was made at the Columbus, Georgia Naval Iron Works and is the only known example in this configuration. There are several other variations that were made at the Naval Iron Works.  The most common and well known is a cutlass that utilizes the identical blade and wooden grip pattern, but with an “S” shaped cross guard made of either brass or iron. This D-guard cutlass measures twenty-four inches from pommel to point.  There is some loose play in the guard and a crack in the wooden grip, the blade remains smooth and semi bright.  This cutlass remains in its original configuration and has not been cleaned, repaired or altered.$3500.00

    C274. CONFEDERATE SABER, GEORGIA MADE: This saber is a known product of Louis Haiman of Columbus, Georgia. This saber is a bit more enhanced in its finish with the number 355 on the hilt and pommel cap. The single iron wire and dyed leather grip, as well as a braised "fault" in the blade near the ricasso, are Haiman characteristics. The scabbard is high quality with a well-made brass throat and brass ring mounts, and a bottom seam similar to a McElroy scabbard. The scabbard fits perfect to the saber with a dark brown patina and no breaks or holes. The hilt has a deep reddish-brown patina and great casting flaws. Hidden under the 150 years for smoke-soot was an original CSA stamp on the back-side of the bottom guard branch. The grip retains 100% original leather and heavy single-strand wire, and the blade has the expected casting flaws with period sharpening $4800.00

    U682. HIGH-GRADE STAFF & FIELD SWORD: This is one of the finest examples of a M1850 Staff & Field sword. After close examination and discussion with others, we believe this is a unmarked Roby sword. The hilt and scabbard mounts retain near 100% original gold wash; the grip and wire are 100% original and in mint condition, and the frosted blade is amazing with several war depicted sceens. The scabbard is mint with original gold washed hanging chains. $6500.00

    U383. RARE HEINISCH BOWIE KNIFE: This is a rare American Bowie knife by the noted American Cutler Rochus Heinisch, of Newark, New Jersey. American Bowie knives are very rare; many times rarer than Sheffield Bowies that dominated the U.S. market place in the early to mid-1800s.  Heinisch Bowie knives are extremely rare; and according to Bill Williamson, all appear to have been made in the 1850's. There are very few known specimens that have surfaced to date.  This being a previously unseen design, and only the second I have handled.

    This Bowie knife measures 12 1/4" in overall length with its original scabbard.  The 7 3/8" clip blade x 1 1/16" wide shows period sharpening, and hot stamped, "R. HEINISH". The blade tang extends through a walnut grip with a brass ferrule at the brass cross guard, and a brass pale where the tang is pinned. The tang is loose due to shrinkage.  The sheath is original to the knife with a little shrinkage and the tip missing. On the grip are stamped the initials "J.R.M." however, there is nothing else indicating a units and there are too many soldiers with those initials to make a positive identification. In the famous William Williamson article on Heinisch Bowies, he states that the name of R. Heinisch can be added to the select little group of American cutlers who made Bowie and fighting type knives of quality.  Here is an opportunity to own a Rare American made Civil War period bowie knife. $3600.00 $1900.00

    F201. M1854 LEFAUCHEUX PIN-FIRE REVOLVER: The Pin-Fire revolver was a new invention at the time of the Civil War, and the Lefaucheux revolver made in France was the version of choice.

The serial range for the US contract is 25,000 – 37,000, while the state purchased guns are believed to be earlier numbers. This 4 1/2 inch revolver has serial number #24240, which is just a little earlier then the US Government contact, but close.  The gun is complete with the original unloading rod and cylinder latch; is tight; retains all original screws; lanyard-ring; and much original blue finish and original finished grips.

With a serial number so close to the US Contract range, this revolver could have been purchased by the Government or one of the Union States. $1600.00 $1200.00

    F213. STARR .36 CAL. NAVAL REVOLVER: This Starr revolver is a unique revolver developed prior and used during the Civil War.  It was designed with a sliding switch on the trigger to allow the soldier or sailor to use the gun in a double-action configuration, or single-action by cocking it with the main trigger and using a second smaller trigger to fire the gun.  You will see the more common Army version all the time, but the Naval .36 Caliber version is rare to find.  This Navy Starr revolver has a gray-brown patina and only small traces of original blue. The frame is marked Starr Patent Jan. 15. 1856 on one side, and Starr Arms Co. New York on the other side. All screws are original to the gun.
