C224.  UNIQUE BONE-HANDLE BOWIE KNIFE: This is a unique Bone-handle bowie knife with an unusual blade shape. In many ways, it conforms to a Naval Bowie and some believe it it Confederate, and others think it may be as early as the War of 1812. It is 18 inches long with a 5 inch bone handle, thin brass guard, and a 13 inch curved blade made from a large file. The bone-handle has a great gold-brown patina with a pewter cap held in place with three pins. The thin brass guard is well made and also has great original patina.  File marks can be seen on the top and sides of the blade from end to end. This is a well made bowie knife with a bone handle that show expected age.  $550.00 SALE PRICE $475.00

U587. M1860 CAVALRY SABER –EMERSON & SILVER 1864: This is a M1860 light Cavalry Saber made by Emerson & Silver, Trenton N.J. It is dated 1864 and inspection marked. The hilt has a nice even patina and retains 100% original leather and twisted wire, and the original blade washer holds the blade tight. It has a few dark spots with grayish patina, but no rust. The original scabbard has post-Civil War plating, which was common during the Indian War period.$600.00 SALE PRICE $475.00

C256. MASSIVE CONFEDERATE BOWIE FIGHTING KNIFE This Confederate knife with original russet scabbard is well made and heavily constructed.  It is 21.5 inches long, 1 3/4 inches at its widest point, and weighs 1 pounds 14 oz. The knife would normally be in the blacksmith made category, but the quality is very good and there are several known examples which are almost identical. There is a published example with DEATH TO ABOLITION carved in the blade. There is another with a D-guard configuration, one with a partial S-Guard design, and another 2 identical to this; making five known examples. All five have the same grip and blade design, and russet scabbard. This scabbard would have had a reinforced band and heavy belt loop, but that is gone on this example; however, the leather remains very strong with original stitching, and "J A C" carved near the top. The spin of the blade has been cleaned, and the knife shows evidence of being sharpened at some time since the Civil War. $1300.00 SALE PRICE $1050.00

F202.  3-BAND 1853 ENFIELD MUSKET with REBEL BLACKSMITH MADE RAMROD: This is a model 1853 3-Band Enfield rifle-musket made for export to America for the Civil War, and totally void of English inspection marks. I believe this one was sold to the North (Union), but recovered off a battlefield by the Confederates and put in service to defend the South. The stock is all original with many dings and dents, but has never been sanded. The rear and front sight are original, and there is still strong rifling in the bore. It has the original rear sling swivel, but not the front. The ramrod is not original, but a Confederate wartime replacement made by a blacksmith. It is very crude and covered with hammer marks and is threaded at the end. On the butt of the stock is the circular Birmingham Small Arms Trade stamp, on the underside near the trigger tang is another BSAT stamp. On the underside of the stock is maker name: Joseph Wilson.  The barrel was made by Ezra Millward, but is also marked  Joseph Wilson.  Matching assembly marks “M  X \ \” appear on the bottom of the barrel, lock, and underside of the trigger housing. $1550.00 SALE PRICE $1300.00
