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

IM01. COLT REVOLVING CARBINE, ALLEN & WHEELOCK BELT REVOLVER, CAVALRY SABER, TRIPLE – ARMED CAVALRY SOLDIER – 6TH PLATE TIN-TYPE: This is an extremely rare 6th plate tin-type of a triple-armed cavalry soldier equipped with a Colt revolving carbine, an Allen Wheelock belt revolver and a cavalry saber. The image is dark, but as soon as light hits the image, all the detail pop to include the carbine sling; the soldier’s belt and uniform; the American flag; the background drawing of horses and a soldier, and a cannon and mortar with a stack of cannon balls. It is complete with the original hard case with a yellow pillow, which is the cavalry color.  This is extremely rare image!  $2600.00

IM02. AMBROTYPE - 6TH PLATE: This is two different ambrotype images of the same Union sergeant included in a brown thermoplastic hard case. The soldier is seated with his arm rested on a floral cloth covered table, and is wearing a sash over his shoulder; his cap, and with appears to be the strap for a white haversack. When you examine each image, you can see small difference such as the hand and finger locations, the sergeant strips and the folds, and the table top. With the sergeant wearing the sash in this manner, he is most likely posing as the “Sergeant of the Guard” and the haversack is a good indication he was from Massachusetts. $675.00

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 miniature copy of a Confederate tin canteen, measure 4" x 4" with a tin screw top, with a linen sling.  Perfect 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 shows Angel 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.  $350.00
