    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

    U839. CIVIL WAR PERIOD – M1860 STAFF OFFICER SWORD: Most M1860 Staff Officer swords that are for sale are the post-war version, and it is rare to find a Civil War period example. There are a few minor details to the Civil War sword: the basic plan looking reverse clam shell; the scabbard’s single ring top mount; and a simple looking drag. This example has all the characteristics of the Civil War version. The shark-skin grip and wire are 100% original; the button works allowing the reverse clam shell guard to move; the blade is maker marked F. Delacour & Bakes, Paris, and etched with small US flags; the top scabbard mount has one ring; and the drag is plan in design. The scabbard has a deep brown patina. Where the M1850 sword was designated for Staff & Field, this sword was only delegated for staff officers to include generals. There is an image of General Hooker on a horse wearing this style sword. $550.00

AMES - M1850 STAFF & FIELD SWORD, HIGH-GRADE: This high-grade Ames M1850 Staff & Field sword is extremely minty with 100% of its shark-skin grip and wire, gold wash and frosty special etched blade.

The scabbard also has 100% gold wash and the body of the scabbard has a deep blue patina finish. $2900.00

    F206. CONFEDERATE 1853 ENFIELD RIFLE - SINCLAIR, HAMILTON & COMPANY MARKED:  During the Civil War, a large number of 1853 Enfield Rifle Muskets were supplied by the Sinclair, Hamilton & Company and are found with the following marks:

    This Confederate 1853 3-band Enfield is in near-mint condition with the Oval SCH mark.  This gun was discovered in Mississippi and most likely was carried by a soldier from that state. The rifle is all original with great un-touched brown patina on all steel parts; a dark brown stock; and matching assembly numbers. There is a wood knot in the stock, which appears on both sides of the barrel. This show that quality control was not and issue. Also, the photo lighting make it look lighter then it is and the photos of the markings is correct. The stock is maker marked JOHN  MARSON and XX III (23) in the ram-rob channel. The barrel is maker marked SMITH and the number 23 twice. The lock is maker marked SMITH and the number 23, and both lock retention screws are marked XX III (23). Also, all three barrel bands are numbered 23, and the only part with a different number is the barrel retention screw with the mark X\ //. The front site is worn down.  

    The Oval SHC mark is by the butt plate tang, on the flat area opposite the lock, and between the top barrel band and brass nose cap there is the silhouette of a large oval with the SHC worn and difficult to see.  This third mark is extremely rare! The rifle still retains the original rear sight, and there remains good rifling in the bore. $2900.00
