USBLK01. US REGULATION OVAL BELT PLATE: This US regulation oval belt plate has never been on the market and surfaced at the November, 2017 Tulsa gun show. It is a large oval, lead filled, arrow hook style plate. It shows some wear, but not abuse, and has a nice patina. On the reverse side I found a name scratched in the lead. It is hard to make out the initials of the first name (maybe Bill), but the last name is DYKSTRA. Initially, I did not find this name in the Civil War or National Parks data-base, but located only 1 soldier with this name in the FOLD3 site: Clark N. Dykstra.  He served in the Quarter Master Dept. USA, 4th US Cavalry & 6th US Infantry.  Though I cannot say for certain this is Clark N. Dykstra’s buckle, there is a good chance it is since he is the only Dykstra to appear in the records for the Civil War. $240.00

SLV01. ORIGINAL CSA CONFEDERATE CIVIL WAR CAVALRY CARBINE SLING SWIVEL SNAP HOOK BY COULSON: Here is one (the other is sold) Confederate Cavalry sling swivel snap hooks, British made by Jukes Coulson & Co. for export to the CSA during the War. All original with the Coulson name on the hand forged link between swivel and snap hook with original patina as found. Still a good deal of tension on the spring. Very rare and excellent conditions. $175.00

CN04.  UCV (UNITED CONFEDERATE VETERANS) CANTEEN - ARIZONA MADE: I do not normally purchase UCV or GAR items, but this was very unique and tied to the state of Arizona, and being that my site is located in Arizona it just make sense to bring this back to the state where it was made.  Hopefully, there is a collector here in Arizona that would like it.  It is a United Confederate Veteran (UCV) canteen made for a Confederate reunion.  It is a miniture copy of a Confederate tin canteen, measure 4" x 4" with a tin screw top, and a linen sling.  Large enought for whiskey or tequila.  On the front you can see the faint outline of the letters "UCV" and on the back you can see the makers information: "O K" "Angel Contreras" "Wickenburg." The 1880 US Federal Census records show A. Contreras listed as a Tinsmith, and Wickenburg is a town in Arizona just west of Phoenix.  He most likely made this canteen for one of the few Confederate reunions held in Arizona.  Arizona play a small part in the Civil War, but after the war many veterans ended up in the state because of the gold, silver & copper mines.  The canteen is in outstanding condition!  Here is a unique piece of American history tied to both the Civil War and the state of Arizona.  $395.00

SB01. INDIAN WARS COLONEL’S SHOULDER BOARDS – STATE of MARYLAND: Indian War period Colonel’s staff shoulder paddles with bullion eagles and Maryland state buttons, and dark back ground representing a staff officer. No makers mark. $625.00
