F98. M1816 - CONVERSION MUSKET - CONFEDERATE SOUTH CAROLINA M1816 BAYONET: This is a great example of a classic conversion musket carried by Southern troops with a South Carolina marked M1816 bayonet! The gun is in great condition overall! The metal mostly has a smooth and even light brown patina. The stock is original and retains 98% of the original finish with some bumps and dings, and a small chip near the barrel tang. The lock-plate retains the original 1836 date, but the US and maker names were buffed down during the conversion, indicating the good possibility it is a Confedeate conversion. On the left side of the stock you can see the faint remains of the painted number 27. There were 37 units combined in the North and South that used the number 27. Of this total, there were fifteen 27th Confederate regiments. On the underside of the barrel it is marked "LXXIX" and where the barrel and bolster are welded it is marked "48 X X 48". These markings are common on Confederate arsenal altered and repaired muskets. I beleave the ram-rod is a replacement and not period but it has a nice matching patina. It is classic examples of a conversion musket compete with a Confederate South Carolina bayonet! It is a nice conversion musket with pretty good eye-appeal!$1995.00
F105. AUSTRIAN M1851 CARBINE - TYPE II: This is an Austrian M1851 Carbine - Type II complete with the unusual two ring sling arrangement and raised cheek piece common to many Austrian arms. The stock is in outstanding condition with the letter "W" on the right side. The action is strong, and works in both half and full cock positions. The barrel is marked and the bore has strong lands & groves. This one was not designed to have a ram-rod, which was carried separately. The M1851 carbine has long been considered an early war Federal import.$1175.00
F118. AUSTRIAN M1851 CARBINE - TYPE I: This is an Austrian M1851 Carbine - Type I with a raised cheek piece common to many Austrian arms. The stock is in outstanding condition. The action is strong, and works in both half and full cock positions. It does not have the two carry rings. The barrel bore has strong lands & groves. This one was designed to have a ram-rod. The M1851 carbine has long been considered an early war Federal import.$1195.00
F113. CONFEDERATE - CONVERSION MUSKET: Because of the unique design of the hammer on this Confederate Conversion musket, it is believed to have come out of either North Carolina or Georgia. Confederate Conversion muskets are one of my guns! They speak to the fact about how the South adapted for war. The hammer is a design often seen on guns from North Carolina and Georgia. The bolster is very crude with no brass around the gap in the metal. When you remove the barrel, you can see how crude the work is on the bolster. Normally, the bolster is on a separate piece, which is spliced to the barrel, but here it is not. Also, you can see the Roman numeral IIII commonly associated with Confederate arsenal alter and repaired muskets. These Roman numerals also appear on each of the barrel band mounts. The lock functions properly in both half and full cock, and the original ram-rod has matching patina.$1195.00
F114. CONFEDERATE ARSENAL CONVERSION MUSKET: This musket is a Confederate arsenal conversion musket, which is in great untouched attic condition. It originally was a M1816 flintlock and you can see the Springfield mark and an eagle head on the lock plate. The drum bolster is crudely configured, and the hammer almost has a blacksmith made look to it. All metal parts have the same aged patina, and the stock matched as well. Under the middle band you can see a period arsenal repair to the stock. Even the original ram rod has the same matching patina. Confederate conversion muskets are a good buy since they are more affordable, and underscore the make-do disposition of the Confederate war machine.$995.00
F117. M1816 - CONFEDERATE - CONVERSION MUSKET: This is an outstanding example of a Confederate converted M1816 musket. The lock, bolster are very unique and not of a Northern design. In fact, when you remove the barrel and the lock you will find the Roman numeral III marked on several parts. It is on the wood under the lock, on the underside of the barrel, and on three of the internal lock parts. This was a common practice associated with many Confederate repaired and altered musket. The ram-rod has a cork screw twist that is often seen in other Confederate muskets.$2700.00
F120. PLYMOUTH RIFLE: This is a Plymouth Rifle produced by Whitney and dated 1864. The rifle is complete with its original rear site, ram-rod, and all factory parts. The metal has an even brown patina and has never been cleaned, and the stock has no issued. The sling swivels are both present, but the front one is frozen. The lock works in both half & full cock, and the plate is dated 1864, and the US and Whitneyville marks are faint; however, I do not see an eagle stamp and am not sure if one was ever there. The tang on the barrel has the serial number 9989, and there is still good rifling in the bore. This rifle was designed with a rifle lug for either a saber bayonet made by Collins or the Dahlgren Bowie bayonet knife, and many of these bayonets had to be fitted to the gun. It is hard to find one, especially a Dahlgren Bowie, which will fit. I have a Dahlgren Bowie that appears to have been tooled to fit this rifle, and it is showed attached to the rifle in the last photo. It goes on with ease and is a perfect fit. The information on that knife is listed separately for sale "U510" and if purchased with this rifle, I can make a package price.$1850.00
F121. M1816 - CONVERSION MUSKET: This is a great example of a M1816 Conversion musket which were in arsenals bot North & South at the beginning of the Civil War. The gun is in very good condition overall with great untouched patina! The metal has a smooth mellow brown patina on all metal parts and has never been cleaned.. The stock is original with some bumps and dings, but no damage. The lock-plate retains the original Springfield 1827 markings, but the Federal Eagle was removed during the Conversion. I am told the bolster is similar in designs to an HP conversion. Many of the conversion parts are marked "DD" to include the bottom of the barrel, the lock and the top barrel band. The ram-rod is not original.$1395.00
F122. CONFEDERATE SINCLAIR, HAMILTON & CO. MARKED ENFIELD – ARSENAL REPAIRED STOCK: This is a great example of an untouched out of the attic Confederate marked Enfield rifle-musket with a Confederate arsenal repaired stock. The lock is marked with a Crown rear, and 1862 Tower forward of the hammer. The Sinclair, Hamilton & Company mark on this gun is a Crown over S H / G 3. After years of research and comparison to other identified and know Confederate Enfield muskets, the Crown over S H / G 3 is now considered 1 of 4 known markings use by Sinclair, Hamilton & Company. Additionally, and thought faint, you can see the outline of the I.C. oval cartouche on the stock flat opposite the loc. This mark is usually found on Sinclair, Hamilton & Company marked guns as one of their inspector marks. What really makes this gun a one-of-a-kind gem is the arsenal repaired stock. As you can see the stock was broken, but repaired using an iron plate and straps & screws to make the gun operational. This work prevented the use of a real sling swivel. Such work would not be done on a Union gun. The patina on the wood around the repair shows its great attic condition. Also, the original rear site was lost during the war and never replaced. Finally, the Sinclair, Hamilton & Company mark is forward of the butt plate tang. If you are looking for a unique Confederate Enfield to add to your collection,this is it! P.S. Original bayonet included.$2400.00
F124. MOORE “M” ENFIELD RIFLE MUSKET with ORIGINAL MOORE BAYONET. This is a very desirable version of the Civil War Enfield pattern rifle. It is the one made in New York City by the firm owned by J.P. Moore. For years these were thought to be Confederate, but recent information has proved that it is made by Moore of New York. Moore used the style look of the 1853 pattern Enfield rifle as a base for the design of this gun and even imported some parts. This one has the English made barrel that they say were imported by the Colt Company. You can still clearly see the *25*25* stamp at the breech of the barrel that states that it is .577 in caliber. The barrel is full-length and has the original front and rear sights intact, and the ramrod is original and full-length. This nipple might be replaced. The action still works crisply in all positions. It has the 1863 production date and the shield stamp with the "M”. The walnut stock has a rich dark tone all over with sharp corners and a beautiful attractive look. It has original sling swivels and they both pivot. This is an attractive looking desirable Enfield pattern rifle made by Moore & Company and the patina is perfect. What makes this one even rarer is it has the original Moore bayonet. The standard British bayonets were not designed for this rifle. Moore bayonets were unique to the rifle, and each had a notch cut into it so it would fit the gun. Without this notch the bayonet would not properly fit. Additionally, Moore bayonets are totally unmarked. Here is a rare opportunity to own a rare Civil War musket complete with an even rarer bayonet. $2650.00
F126. CONFEDERATE SINCLAIR, HAMILTON & CO. MARKED ENFIELD: This is a Confederate Sinclair, Hamilton & Co. marked Enfield. The markings are on the underside of the stock near the trigger tang where you can cleanly see a double stamped CROWN over the S/ HC with a third stamp of the letters I S. This is considered the type-2 Sinclair, Hamilton & Co. mark. No magnification will be needed to see this! The musket is in all original condition with all its parts. On the right side of the stock butt you can see the Stock Cartouches, which reads W. C. SCOTT / MAKERS 95 BATH ST. / BIRMINGHAM. The lock is marked CROWN 1862 TOWER. The lock is tight and hold in both half and full cock positions. The original rear site in completed and fully functional, and all three barrel bands are present. On the side opposite the lock is the number 13 and an area where something has been blotted out; meaning unknown. The musket is complete with the original ram-rod, and the bore still has nice rifling. This is one of the best I have for sale.
F127. CONFEDERATE – BRITISH PATTERN 1842 MUSKET: This musket came out of a North Alabama estate and was Confederate carried. It has a Confederate arsenal repair to the stock, and the lock plate has Roman numerals associated with Southern repaired firearms. Confederate purchasing agent Caleb Huse reported the purchase of 21,040 British muskets, which were likely surplus weapons decommissioned from the British military to include this smooth-bore 69 caliber musket. It was the last regulation smooth bore musket produced for the British Army. The barrel is secured with three flat keys and the swivel screw. Two of the flat keys are missing the head, and there the holes were fill in at a Confederate Arsenal. The front site acts as a bayonet stud, and the plain notched dovetailed rear sight is brazed to the barrel. The lock is of the familiar Enfield design, and it is maker marked Lacy & Co. London. When removed you can see the arsenal Roman numeral XXII, and lock action works correctly. However, when the lock is in place, it does not hold in the full-cocked position. The stock is solid, but you can see the Confederate Arsenal repair on the right side, and a crack on the left. The ram-rod is original to the gun. If you have been waiting to have a nice Rebel musket in your collection that is affordable, this is it.$995.00
F128. CONFEDERATE KENTUCKY IDENTIFED 1853 ENFIELD MUSKET: This Model 1853 Enfield Musket is identified to Private H. W. Jones of Company "G" 3rd Kentucky Mounted Infantry. This identification is made from the unique identifying Cross associated with the 3rd Kentucky Infantry. It is carved into the stock with the soldiers initials "W.H.J." Records show H. W. Jones name on unit muster-cards up until April 1864 with an unspecified desertion date sometime before the command was mustered out. In addition to the carved cross and initials, there are additional carvings and marks on the musket confirming it as a Confederate carried Enfield, and one that saw extensive combat! The 3rd Kentucky Infantry Cross and the initials "W.H.J." are carved on the left side (cheek side) of the stock, and on the opposite side is a carved Confederate battle flag. On the left side of the stock just forward of the lock screws are carved 7 "X's" most likely indicating the number of engagements. Also, the brass trigger guard is decorated with 15 hash-marks and the same cross design as on the stock. The original site was period replaced by a blade-site, which is crude in design and obvious Confederate. Finally, the rifling groves were shot out and are now smooth, which is like so many heavily use Confederate muskets. It is100% complete with all original parts and the period Enfield leather sling. The lock is marked CROWN and Tower 1862 and properly works in half and full cock. All the barrel bands have matching patina as does the barrel, and the ramrod is original to the gun. On the underside of the stock near the trigger strap is a double stamped CROWN S/HC (Sinclair, Hamilton & Co.) with the over stamped letters T M (meaning unknown at this time). Faint, but there. Documentation included.$2700.00
F132. CONFEDERATE - SHG1 MARKED P-1853 ENFIELD RIFLE MUSKET: This very attractive example of a Pattern 1853 Type III “Enfield” rifle-musket bears the (CROWN) / SH / G1, which has been identified to Sinclair, Hamilton & Co. Extensive research has been conducted on these imported Enfield muskets and the following facts have been established.
1) Every mark in this location (top of the butt comb, in front of the butt plate tang) has been identified and proven to be a Confederate mark. Including JS / (ANCHOR), various versions of the (CROWN) / SH / C Sinclair, Hamilton & Company marks and the CH / 1 inspection mark of Curtis & Hughes and the (ANCHOR) / S.
2) No evidence exists that Schuyler, Hartley & Graham ever marked the guns they imported (or the domestic guns they sold). They imported thousands of guns, other than Enfields, from all over Europe and sold arms from US makers like Whitney and Mass Arms. To date no other guns have surfaced with the SH / G# mark.
3) An extensive study of period documents, as well as the writings of the principles of Schuyler, Hartley & Graham located only ONE reference to the company as “SHG”, in all other cases the name was fully written out. Interestingly, period documents regularly refer to Sinclair, Hamilton & Company as “SHC”.
4)The SH / G# mark has five variants, with the number after the “G” being either a 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5. Sinclair, Hamilton & Company used five “furnishers” for their 2nd Confederate contract for 30,000 P-1853 Enfield rifle muskets. These are the “JS/Anchor” guns with engraved numbers on their butt plate tangs. The furnishers often marked the comb of the butt with a single initial to indicate that they delivered the gun. The marks were B for EP Bond, F for Parker, Field & Son, K for James Kerr, (these 3 being London makers), S for Scott & Son and J for CW James (these last 2 being Birmingham makers). Just because their furnisher’s mark appeared on the stock, did not mean that they built the gun, only that they delivered to Sinclair, Hamilton & Company under this contract. It is rational to presume that the number following the “G” in the SH/G# mark refers to the furnisher for the contract.
5) The supposition in the last line of the above argument is further bolstered by the fact that an SH/G# marked gun is known to exist that also bears a furnisher’s marking letter. This is clear evidence of a gun with a known Confederate mark also bearing the SH/G# mark.
6) The final "smoking gun" recently appeared on the market. It is an "SHG1" marked P-1853 that also bears the Sinclair-Hamilton SH / C in an oval mark that is occasionally encountered on the breech of P-1853's. In this case the mark is at the end of the Birmingham proofs at the breech. This appears to be iron clad evidence that the SHG# mark is in fact another Sinclair, Hamilton & Co mark.
The guns that bear the (CROWN) / SH / G# mark are usually found with additional marks. Typically a script cartouche will be found on the flat opposite the lock, and sometimes set of inspectors initials on the barrel.
The numbers that follow the“G” in the mark range from 1 to 5, with 3 being the most often encountered number. 1 and 5 are practically never found on a gun. This supports the theory that the numbers refer to the furnisher who supplied the gun, as it is well documented that the furnishers of the JS/Anchor 2nd contract guns (30,000 in all) all supplied the guns in varying numbers. James Kerr supplied only 500, less than 2% of the contract, while CW James delivered 10,000, fully 1/3 of the contract! To date, most all of the SH/G# marked guns have been P-1853 rifle muskets from Birmingham makers, marked TOWER on the lock dated 1862 or 1863.
This P-1853 Enfield Rifle Musket is clearly marked with the (CROWN) / SH / G1 on the comb of the stock, forward of the butt-plate tang. The lock is marked 1863 Tower and the barrel is marked with London Commercial proof marks. The stock is clearly marked with the stock cartouche Charles Reeves War Toledo Works Birmingham, and there is a brass disk with the number 41 on the lower portion of the butt. Its meaning is unknown and could be a unit number or a museum inventory number. On the opposite side of the lock is a faint oval and an X carved in the wood, and on the brass trigger guard tang are a soldiers initials "AAA." The gun is in great condition and is fully operational. It is complete with all original parts,and the barrel has strong rifling. Overall, this is an outstanding Confederate musket.$2600.00
F134. CONFEDERATE JS MARKED ENFIELD - ID'ed 62nd VIRGINIA INFANTRY: This Confederate JS marked 1853 Enfield musket is in great condition with beautiful patina. On the underside of the stock you will find the JS (anchor) mark, which can be seen without magnification. The lock plated has a CROWN and Tower 1862 on it, and it works perfectly in both half and full cock, but has no firing nipple. On the left side of the stock is a carved design of unknown meaning. The original rear site is long gone, but the barrel still has strong rifling.
During the Civil War, many Confederate soldiers would carve their initials onto a musket, but seldom can we identify the owner unless there are additional unit markings. In this case, the musket not only has the soldier’s initials, but we know the exact regiment and company. On the top of the brass butt plate it is stamped “Co. D 62” and the letters “JAW” are stamped on the opposite side from the lock. These identifying marks make it easy to narrow the search, and there is only one Confederate soldier matching these markings : Corporal James A. Wilson, Company D 62nd Virginia Infantry. He enlisted on 8/20/1863 at Rockingham County, Virginia and was later wounded in battle on 5/15/1864 at the battle of New Market, VA. Records show he was sick 9/25/1864, but no further records are on file.$2900.00
F135. UNION IMPORTED - AUSTRIAN M1842 MUSKET: At the beginning of the Civil War there were not enough weapons available, so the North as well as the South imported many weapons from Europe, and this is one. It is an Austrian Model 1842 musket. Its overall length is 58 inches with a 42.6 inch long barrel made in .70 caliber smooth bore, but many, as in this example, were rifled to utilize the Minié projectile. This example has the cone-in barrel conversion and the rifling is very strong. It also has a very nice long-range site not often found on these muskets. The barrel is secured to the stock by three bands of which the top and bottom are secured by springs, but the middle is not. All have the correct flat-bottom design and are original to the gun. The lock plate is marked U 28 85 and the barrel is marked CHARIS BERETTA with I B enclosed in an oval. The stock has a raised cheek-piece and is made of a semi-hard white wood with pronounced and distinctive grain. This example is missing the ramrod, but that is an easy fix. Also, this gun is designed with the Laukart system for the bayonet. This is easily a $1250.00 gun, but is available for less and the shipping is included in this price. $1035.00
F136. WHITNEY NAVY REVOLVER – SECOND MODEL 2nd TYPE: The Whitney Navy revolver is among the first practical solid frame revolvers, and was an early competitor to the Colt. The gun was quite popular in the Civil War and much of its production saw service, and over half of the standard Second Model were purchased by the Army and Navy, and various states. This example is a Second Model, 2nd type revolver. It is marked E. WHITNEY/N. HAVEN and has an early serial number 5829, which is matched on all parts. There are traces of original blue, but for the most part the gun has an even gray patina. The action works perfectly and is crisp; the original nipples are in great shape; the barrel has strong rifling,and there still remains much of the original cylinder scene, though hard to photograph. There might be a trace of a government cartouche on the grip, but if so it is very very faint.The price includes shipping.
