    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

    U647. GETTYSBURG,  LITTLE ROUND TOP - PRESENTATION SCABBARD BELONGING TO LIEUTENANT  COL. JAMES C. RICE AND A NEWLY DISCOVERED TINTYPE OF COL RICEThe existence of this scabbard and the fact it survived the war is amazing. It is a Silver-Foiled Scabbard for a Staff & Field sword. The Silver-Foiled Scabbard are rarely seen and more properly referred to as “close plating.”  It has uncommon fancy brass mounts which retain original screws. You can see plating worn-off in areas exposing the underlying steel. This is especially noticeable between the top two mounts where the carrying officer would hold the scabbard. As of result, the engraved presentation, which is on the back side of the scabbard, is worn down and not noticeable at first, which account for its unknown existence for so long.  On close examination the presentation reads:

    Lieut. Col. Rice, Forty-fourth Regiment N. Y. S. V. Presented by his Albany Friends.'

    Rice was born in Worthington, Mass., Dec. 27, 1829.He attended school, but was mainly self-educated until he entered Yale, where he graduated in 1854. He engaged in teaching for a while at Natchez, Miss., became literary editor of a newspaper, and then commenced the study of law. A year later he removed to New York City, where he was admitted to the bar in 1856 and began to practice. When the Civil War began, Rice enlisted as a private on 28 May 1861 in the 39th New York Infantry Regiment quickly, was chosen adjutant and becoming a Captain of Company B and fought at the First Battle of Bull Run. Rice was mustered out of the 39th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment on 12 Sep 1861. The next day Rice became lieutenant colonel of the newly formed 44th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment (also known as People's Ellsworth Regiment).

    Shortly afterward he became colonel of the regiment; he led it in the Peninsula Campaign at YorktownHanover Court HouseGaines' Mill, and Malvern Hill. At the Second Battle of Bull Run (Manassas), Colonel Rice took command of the 3rd Brigade, 1st Division, V Corps when its commander, Daniel Butterfield took command of the consolidated 1st and 2nd Brigades and other ranking officers were wounded on the second day of battle. Rice returned to command of the 44th New York and led it at the battles of Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville.

    At the Battle of Gettysburg, Rice and his regiment were sent to the defense of Little Round Top. During the fighting, brigade commander Colonel Strong Vincent was mortally wounded and Rice once again assumed command of the 3rd Brigade, 1st Division, V Corps and led it for the remainder of the battle. He performed distinguished service at Gettysburg while commanding a brigade during the second day's fight, by holding the extreme left of the line against repeated attacks and defending Round Top from a flank movement. For this he received a Brigadier-General's commission in the volunteer army Aug. 17, 1863.

    In March, 1864 General Rice was in command of the 2nd Brigade, 4th Division, V Corps which he led in the advance on Mine Run and in the operations in the Wilderness, and was mortally wounded at Laurel Hill, VA. As he lay dying, he muttered the words "turn me over that I may die with my face to the enemy." He died on the Spotsylvania battlefield on May 10, 1864. He was buried at Albany Rural Cemetery, Menands, New York.

    On receiving his appointment in the 44th New York, Lieut. Col. Rice was the recipient of a beautiful sword, belt, &c., from the ladies and gentlemen of Albany. The following account of the presentation is taken from the Albany Evening Journal of October 19th, 1861:

    A large company of ladies and gentlemen met at the house of A. McClure last evening, on the occasion of the presentation of sword, &c., to Lieut. Col. Rice, of the Ellsworth regiment. Among those present were Gov. Morgan, Hon. Erastus Corning, John G. Saxe, Esq., and other distinguished citizens. The Presentation Address was made by Mrs. William Barnes, who spoke with great feeling and in a vein of patriotic fervor, which stirred the hearts of all who listened. It will be long before the recipient will forget her eloquent words and impressive counsels. Lieut. Col. Rice responded in an address marked at once by earnestness and scholarly finish. He pledged those present that the sword, of which he was the recipient, should return to its scabbard, when the war was ended, untarnished; and that no friend should have cause to blush over his record. He was deeply affected, and spoke with the pathos of earnest feeling.

    "The sword is beautifully finished, and bears the following inscription: 'Lieut. Col. Rice, Forty-fourth Regiment N. Y. S. V. Presented by his Albany Friends.'

    The wear on the scabbard indicates it was carried, and most likely saw service in the early battles of the Civil War, to possibly include Gettysburg.

    Silver plated scabbard are difficult to photograph, so I apologies for the quality of the photos. It looks better when held in your hands.

    TINTYPE: While at a recent show, I acquired a tintype of a Union Colonel and upon close examination discovered it to be Col. James Clay Rice. The forage cap he is wearing is identical to the cap he wore in the known CDV. You can see that cap is the same shape with the badge is in the same position. The eyes, noise and ear are the same as well as the structure of the face.  The image clearly has his eagles painted silver.  This is a Rare find and to date is the only known tintype image of Col. Rice.

    A binder complete with all military records for Rice is included with the scabbard and image. This is a momentous find and an extremely important historic artifact related to the American Civil War and the Battle of Gettysburg. $6000.00

    This Confederate 1853 3-band Enfield is in fine condition with the Oval SCH mark.  This gun was discovered in Virginia and most likely was carried by a soldier from that state. This rifle has a dark blue barrel and mounts, and a wood has pleasing eye appeal. There is even a screw in the wood behind the nipple which appears to be orignal to the gun because it has period bluing with a little wear.

    The  Oval SHC mark is by the butt plate tang, and on the flat area opposite the lock, and between the top barrel band and the brass nose cap there is the silhouette of a large oval, but the SHC is worn and difficult to see.  This third mark is extremely rare!

    C284. MITCHELL & TYLER (BOYLE & GAMBLE) CONFEDERATE FOOT OFFICER SWORD: Boyle & Gamble of Richmond, Virginia was the Confederacy’s most prolific maker of officer’s swords and the company’s field and staff officer’s sword is easily the most recognized sword produced during the Confederate era.  The firm made swords for retail sale as well as government contracts.  The company also supplied their high quality officer’s swords for resale to jewelry and military outfitter, Mitchell & Tyler, located on Main Street in Richmond, Virginia.  Mitchell & Tyler did no manufacturing, but sold the very finest swords, belts, buttons, and even laces and silverware.  In short, they sold everything and more, necessary for the dapper Confederate Officer.  The sword shown here is an example of the sword Boyle and Gamble made for Mitchell and Tyler. It is a standard Foot Officer sword with its original scabbard. The hilt and pommel cap have a deep reddish-brown patina, and displays great casting flaws.

The grip is shark skin, which is extremely rare. There is a small strand of double twisted wire under the pommel cap. The curved blade is wavy with an unstopped fuller. The scabbard is well made and high quality for being Confederate, and the lapped seam is barely visible. The metal body has original period paint with brass mounts and brass rings. The reverse side of the scabbard has a buff finish to the black and the brass has a copper-brown patina, whereas the front has a slight sheen to the black and the brass is mustard colored. This may have been a result of the front being dusted while hanging in a GAR HALL.  If you collect Confederate swords, especially Artillery sabers, this is a must! $5495.00

    F221: ENFIELD - PATTERN 1856 SHORT RIFLE, COMMERCIAL VERSION, SINCLAIR, HAMILTON & COMPANY: This is a Confederate Sinclair, Hamilton & Company marked brass mounted commercial version Enfield – Pattern 1856 Short Rifle. The butt-plate is brass as is the trigger guard, which is not extended. As a result, the real swivel would be screwed directly into the stock, but is gone from hard use.  The pin for the nipple protector chain is also missing in action. The rifle stock is solid with no breaks or major issues. It does show heavy use with expected nicks and dings. The letter W is carves is several location on the stock. There is heavy saddle-wear on the underside of the stock behind the rear band. There is also a good amount of nipple-burnt wood. The lock is fully functional and hold strong in both positions, and it is marked: Crown, Tower, 1861. The lock and its screws; the barrel retention screw; the front band; and the ramrod channel all have matching assembly marks ///. The rear band has British proof marks, which is not unusual. The barrel and the lock have a deep rich brown patina. The bore is bright with very strong 3-grove rifling. The front band is original, but I am not sure about the swivel. Also, the front bayonet lug is the early version with the extended key, which is rare. Finally, on the underside of the stock near the tang of the brass guard you will see the Crown SHC - Sinclair, Hamilton & Company mark.

It is an 1858 Bar on Band Enfield rifle with iron mounts making it an early Confederate purchase. It is also marked with a Crown S H C for Sinclair, Hamilton & Company. This mark was their second stamped used.

    The photo lighting makes the wood look lighter. So, I took a photo of the Crown SHC without it, so you can see the dark brown color of the wood.  The stock is complete with no breaks, but there is a small chip above the SHC mark. All the steel has a nice pleasing patina. The rifling is very strong. The Crown SCH marks can be viewed without magnification. The lock is dated 1861. The nipple protector is present, but the chain is broken. Opposite the lock plate side is the letters WF and a N.
