    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

    U878. EMERSON & SILVER – SILVER HILT STAFF & FIELD OFFICER’S SWORDThis is a silver hilt Staff & Field Officer’s sword, and though it is not maker marked we know it was made by Emerson & Silver because of the distinct shape of the grip; heavy guard; and lightly etched blade. The hilt is tight what all original wire and a replaced blade washer. The blade is bright with no rust of nicks, but lightly etched. The scabbard is brown metal with brass mounts and drag, which are all complete. $1700.00

    U852. AMES - M1850 STAFF & FIELD SWORD, BROWN SCABBARDThis is a rare early example of the Ames M1850 Staff & Field sword with a brown scabbard. It is in great shape with 100% shark-skin grip and wire, 50%+ gold wash; a frosty etched blade; and a brown scabbard with all original mounts and screws. These are rarely seen for sale. $2900.00

    ********************************************************************************************

    C300. CONFEDERATE ARTILLERY SABER: This is a Confederate Artillery Saber from an unknown maker, of which I have seen three others like it. It has an oil cloth grip made to look like ray-skin; no remaining wire; a brass pommel cap and guard; an unstopped fuller blade, and a high-quality scabbard with brass mounts and rings. There are great casting flaws and filling marks on the guard, pommel cap and blade. I suspect that the higher-grade features on this saber my possibly make it an officer’s version. $6500.00

    ********************************************************************************************

    U742. SAUERBIER ENLISTED CAVALRY SABER, TYPE 1: This is a Sauerbier enlisted saber, Type-1 and is identical to the one on page 336 & 337 of the book Civil War Cavalry & Artillery Saber by John Thillmann. It is complete and in excellent condition with its heavy plain guard; turned down pommel cap with the spanner nut; 100% original leather grip and wire; and unique unstopped fuller blade. The scabbard is all original with its large drag and no dents. This is a difficult saber to locate and will make a great addition of a cavalry display. $1300.00

    F247. PATTERN 1858 BAR-ON-BAND ENFIELD RIFLE: This is a British Pattern 1858 Bar-on-Band Enfield Rifle. The gun shows light wear, has a Tower 1861 lock that properly works; has strong rifling; is marked “London Tower 1862” on the stock and two crowns stamped near the trigger tang, and the stock makers information stamped in the ramrod channel. On the opposite side from the lock is the name E. LORTON. $1400.00

    U642. HORSTMANN ENLISTED MODEL 1840 SABER – TYPE 1. This saber may be one of the 5000 that were made with Emerson & Silver blades from the earlier Hortmann contract with the Ordnance Department. It has the Keystone stamp unique to Emerson & Silver, and the early HORSTMANN’S PHILA retailer stamp. The guard and pommel cap are tight, and the black leather grip and twisted wire is original and 100% complete. The is blade is nick and rust free with a sharp point and has a great look. The original scabbard has a deep brown patina and fits correct to the blade and shows period wear on the drag. These sabers saw action in both the Mexican – American war and the Civil War. Considering 5000 were made and with two wars and use by both Union and Confederate troops, how many have survived. $1400.00

    F263. CONFEDERATE KERR REVOLVERDuring the Civil War, the South imported many weapons from England to include Kerr revolvers. The majority of those purchased under Confederate contracts were inspected and stamped with a JS Anchor and have a serial number between 1019 & 9975, but there are some outside this range. This Kerr revolver came out of a pre-internet collection and is a newly discovered JS-Anchor marked revolver with serial number 7016, which matches on the frame and cylinder. The gun is all original and complete. The action properly works, but is a little soft; it has a pleasing even brown patina; proof marks on the barrel and cylinder, and the maker name is on the metal grip plate. The original wood grip is tight and complete with a strong legible JS-Anchor; and retains the two base-plate screws and lanyard ring. With a serial number 174 numbers away from item F264, there is a very good chance this is also a Virginia gun. $4300.00

    F264. CONFEDERATE KERR REVOLVERDuring the Civil War, the South imported many weapons from England to include Kerr revolvers. The majority of those purchased under Confederate contracts were inspected and stamped with a JS Anchor and have a serial number between 1019 & 9975, but there are some outside this range. This Kerr revolver came out of a pre-internet collection and is a newly discovered JS-Anchor marked revolver with serial number 6842, which matches on the frame and cylinder. This serial number is 6 digests from the Kerr carried by General Edward Porter Alexander of Virginia. Being so close to Alexander’s gun leave little doubt it was carried by another Virginian and also saw action at Gettysburg. The gun is all original and complete, but the action is temperamental and does not always stay locked-back when the hammer is cocked. It is like a hair trigger. It has a pleasing even brown patina with traced of original blue on the side panel by London Armory mark and is proof marked on the barrel and cylinder. The original wood grip is tight and complete with a strong legible JS-Anchor; and retains the two base-plate screws and lanyard ring. This as well as item F264 came from the same collection. $4500.00

    F271. CONFEDERATE 1853 3-BAND ENFIELD RIFLE, ENGRAVED NUMBERED BUTT PLATE: This Confederate 1853 3-band Enfield Rifle was recently discovered and is JS-Anchor marked with a previous unknown numbered butt plate; 9252. The stock is complete with expected dents and bumps, but no breaks. The barrel-bands and barrel are original with an even deep brown patina; no rear site, but a site-notch cut into the back band; a smooth bored; Tower lock dated 1862 that holds in one position; and a replaced ramrod. $2300.00

    CSDRAG. CONFEDERATE SWORD DRAG & CS ALTERED AMES NAVAL MOUNTS: This set of sword mounts was discovered in a home outside of Baltimore, MD. The top two mounts were made by Ames; however, the braided rope chase-work was buffed down to a smooth surface. With it was a Confederate sword drag made from copper and brass. The reverse side shows a seam in the middle with two holes for the retention pins. Being that the top two mounts were originally for a M1850 Naval Sword, there is a good possibility this scabbard was for some type of Confederate naval officer sword. The drag alone is amazing and could fit most Confederate officer sword scabbards. Confederate scabbard parts, especially a drag, are extremely rare. $1000.00

    *********************************************************************************************

    SCB01. AMES - M1850 STAFF & FIELD SWORD SCABBARD:  This scabbard is for an Ames M1850 Staff & Field sword with a blade up to 32 1/2 inches long. The steel is period blue with all the mounts, rings and screws, but no throat piece, and the mounts retain much original gold wash. I have tried several Ames M1850 Staff & Field blades in it and they have all fit. This price includes shipping and the sales is final. $1400.00
