U227. CIVIL WAR SOLDIER’S WALKING
STICK: This cane is identified to Joseph B.
Goshorn who enlisted on 2/6/1862 into the PA 107th Infantry and was discharged
for disability on 10/23/1862 from injuries received doing the Antietam campaign.
The cane is just less than 36 inches and has two plaques attached. One reads
“J.B. Goshorn Co. B 107 Regt Pa Vols.” And the other reads “Antietam Sept, 17
1862.” Both plaques are attached with four
pins each, and they are tight.
The style of etching
conforms to the period and is original.
A complete copy of
Goshorn’s military record is included. It states that after the Second Battle of
Bull Run, Goshorn was injured in the right eye from a blow of a blunt object
such as the butt of a musket. This injury caused his removal from
the battle field and placement in the hospital. It is unknown if he snuck out of
the hospital and return to his command in time for the battle of Antietam, but
that is a likely scenario and account for the inscription on the
cane. I am selling this at a substantial
discount and below my purchase price. It is a great buy!
U250. P.S. JUSTICE CAVALRY OFFICERS' SABER: This is a P.S. Justice Cavalry Officers' saber. It is a rare saber and not often found; however, when found they often show evidence of being carried during the Civil War. The saber displays great original patina on the hilt and scabbard. The hilt and grip are tight with no movement. The original sharkskin grip is about 90% complete with 100% original wire. The original leather blade washer is present, and the blade is in nice shape showing the expected wear. The scabbard retains all the original brass mounts and throat piece, and the drag displays the expected wear and dings. It has a lot of character! If you are looking for a honest Cavalry Officers' saber, which was used during the Civil War and will not break the bank, than this is it!
