BL02. FOOT ARTILLERY SWORD BELT with BUCKLE  AND FROG - CIVIL WAR PERIOD: The M1832 Foot Artillery sword is one of the most unique items from the Mexican War - and the Civil War. You often see the white buff leather rig which pre-dates the Civil War, but not often the black leather version from the Civil War years.  This is the Civil War period sword rig complete with frog, buckle and matching keeper. The condition is outstanding! You can see the maker mark “GAYLORD” on the inside, the buckle is in outstanding condition with the original keeper both serial number 675, and the leather belt loops are complete.  $800.00

CB01. MODEL 1857 PATTERN 1861 CIVIL WAR CARTRIDGE BOX. Of all the cartridge boxes I saw at a recent show this one stood out for a variety of reasons.  First it is an early war piece with brown leather and it shows use but not abuse. The US plate is an early heavy one and it has never been removed. For all I know, it may be maker marked but I will not remove it because the leather retaining strap is original and tight. The inside flap is New York maker marked and is solid with all original stitching, and the pocket leather is supple. The bottom closing strap is not complete, but the original brass finial is the pointy version. Both buckles are complete and all straps on the back are there.  This box just displays well!  Free Shipping $450.00

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

CN05. CONFEDERATE WOOD DRUM CANTEEN: This Confederate wood drum canteen is in great condition with all its metal bands and a partial leather hanging strap. I am told the spout may not be original. It has the letters W H V carved on one side and a small star and other marks but not enough to identify the Southern soldier who carried it. $1800.00

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
