    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

    C256. CONFEDERATE - MASSIVE 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 3 identical to this; making six known examples. All have the same grip and blade design, and russet scabbard. This scabbard would have had a reinforced leather band and heavy belt loop, but that is gone on this example; however, the leather remains very strong with original stitching, and has the initials "J A C" carved near the top. Unfortunately, there is not enough information to identify these initials. $2300.00

    C259. CONFEDERATE BOWIE - LOUISIANA SIDE KNIFEThis Confederate Bowie Side-knife was discovered in Louisiana and no doubt was made in New Orleans. From end to end the knife is 18 inches with a 11 1/4-inch spear point blade. The blade has never been cleaned and has great untouched patina. The original leather blade washer is complete and keeps the knife tight, and the solid wooded grip looks to be from a tool such as a file. The scabbard is leather covered wood with tin for the throat, drag and sides. You can see some leather lose, which exposes the wood, and you will notice the patina is perfect as well. Also, there is a Confederate flat button attached to the throat for use with a frog device. The sheath design was influenced by a designed common to French short swords, and since the knife was discovered in Louisiana, the French influence would be strong. Also, the throat and drag are held in place with period staples. The cross-guard is made of pewter and has a hair-line crack, but is strong. This is a rare find! $3200.00

    *********************************************************************************************

    C286. BRASS GUARD CLIP-POINT D-GUARD BOWIE KNIFE: This brass guard clip-point D-Guard Bowie knife most likely is a naval with the brass guard. It is 18 inches long with a 14 1/4 inch blade. The blade is very thin with a pronounced clip point; has filing marks, a few small nicks, and was period sharpened. It has great looking patina, which can only come after 150 plus years of age. The oak wood grip appears to be a tool handle with a steel ferrule, and the guard is thin brass rolled at the edge. Looking at the area when the brass is penned to the wood, it is obvious the guard is original to the knife.  The brass also has traces of a black lacquered finish, not paint. This knife is well worth $1300.00, but is available at a discounted price. $850.00

    *********************************************************************************************

    C295. CONFEDERATE - VIRGINIA SPEAR-POINT FIGHTING KNIFE: This Virginia Confederate spear-point fighting knife is in near-mint condition! It was recently inspected by a well-known dealer of Confederate collectables and appraised at $3500-$4000. The cherry wood grip and guard are tight, and the blade is bright with period sharpening. The leather sheath fits tight to the blade and retains both straps, and is in amazing condition. $2900.00

    ********************************************************************************************

    C304. CONFEDERATE - MASSIVE D-GUARD BOWIE FIGHTING KNIFE: This Confederate D-Guard Bowie knife is amazing with its huge clip-point blade and the backward swept guard. This design is similar, but not exact, to a D-Guard from Clear Point Alabama. The knife has a Walnut grip pinned with a leather washer forward, and a 17 3/4-inch by 2-inch wide blade with a 6 1/2-inch clip-point. Overall length is just over 22 inches. The blade has great casting flaw, and several large chips of missing metal are due to poor forging. Great Southern steel! $2900.00

    ********************************************************************************************

    C346.  NORTH CAROLINA - CONFEDERATE BOWIE SIDE KNIFE – IDENTIFIED to a VIRGINIA SOLDIER: This Confederate Bowie Side Knife is identified to Private Calvin Baker who served in the following units: "I" Co. Virginia 3rd Infantry, Virginia Surry Light Artillery and "Hankins'" Co. Virginia James City Light Artillery. He saw service in both Virginia and North Carolina, which may account for him owning the knife. The knife was made in North Carolina. In fact, it is featured on the bottom of page 162 of the book: Confederate Bowie Knives by Jack Milton, Josh Phillips & John Sexton. The book provides the knifes dimensions and description, but failed to mention it was carried by Private Calvin Baker. The knife had been in the Baker family up until 2002, and the Great Grandson of Calvin Baker, Emmett Billings Baker, documented how it was passed down from generation to generation. He even authored two signed letters documenting the history, and was photographed holding the knife for the new owner in 2002. When the knife was sold and later photographed for the book, there was a period label which read Baker, C.; however, by the time the knife resurfaced the label was all but gone. Nevertheless, enough is still visible to validate it is the same knife. A binder with historical information comprised of Baker’s muster sheets, copies of the great-grandsons letter and photo images, as well as the original signed letters will be included. $6500.00

    ********************************************************************************************

    C348. CONFEDERATE SIDE-KNIFE & ORIGINAL LEATHER COVERED WOOD SHEATH: This is a Confederate side-knife with the original leather covered wood sheath in amazing condition. The knife is 16 1/2 inches long with a 11 1/2-inch blade and is period sharpened. The walnut wood grip is pinned to the blade with three brass rivets and there is a nice S-guard. The sheath has a wood-core covered with leather and cotton stitching. This is a high-quality fighting knife and may have been made for an officer. Several years back Brian Akins (Rebel Relics) featured this knife in one of his late-knife Rebel Relic video. $3800.00

    ********************************************************************************************

    C354. CONFEDERATE – ALABAMA SIDE KNIFE: This Confederate side knife is most likely from Alabama. It has a great Southern look with its large 6-inch grip, massive 5 1/2-inch cross guard, and 11 1/4 X 2-inch blade. This grip is carved with eight sides and held tight with no movement with the blade. The guard has some expected movements, and all steel is rust-free and displays great casting flaws. This is an amazing Confederate side knife! $1900.00

    ********************************************************************************************

    C356. MASSIVE CONFEDERATE PISTOL GRIP BOWIE KNIFE. This is a massive Confederate pistol grip bowie knife complete with its original russet-brown leather scabbard. The knife is 19 1/2 inches long with a 14 1/2-inch blade. The pistol grip is well made with a brass ferrule by the steel guard and is finished at the bottom with a brass plate. There are some stress cracks, but the grip is solid. The blade is very well made with high quality steel and is free of nicks, pitting and rust, and was period sharpened. The russet-brown scabbard is well made and strong with 100% original stitching, and some expected wear at its end. There is a similar enormous Confederate knife depicted on page 233 of the “Bowie Knife” book published by Norm Flayderman, which is currently for sale for $11,900 at Old South Military Antigues. This is an extremely rare knife. $4500.00

    C358. CONFEDERATE SHORT ARTILLERY SWORD: Prior to the outbreak of hostilities between the North and South, the state of Virginia acquired military arms from Northern suppliers.  Virginia had a contract with Ames to modify existing Virginia sabers. In addition, they purchased loose blades and scabbards for other swords. This Confederate Short Artillery sword is made with a Confederate cast copy of the Ames hilt married to an unmarked Ames blade and an Ames scabbard.  When you examine the hilt, you can see it is crudely sand casted with flaws with the eagle and shield void of details. There are no rivets, but has the three dimples common to a Confederate copy.  The blade is high-quality and unmarked, and is obvious made by Ames. The scabbard is 100% Ames with inspection marks, and is in near-mint condition.  The quality and condition of this Confederate sword is amazing! The sword alone is valued at $1500.00 and the scabbard at $600.00; a $2100.00 value. $1800.00

    ********************************************************************************************

    C359. GEORGIA - CONFEDERATE D-GUARD BOWIE: This Georgia Confederate double D-Guard knife showed up at the Civil War show in Marietta Georgia and is a Georgia Blacksmith made knife with similar characteristics to item C344, which was also discovered in Georgia. I believe the two knives were made by the same Georgia blacksmith and this one is an earlier production being crude in design. Both knives have similar shape in the guard and elevated quillon, a spear-point blade, and an oak wood grip. This knife is 13 1/2 inches long with an 8 1/2-inch spear-point blade. The guard is Double D-Guard is crudely forged with casting flaws. It is pinned tight to the oak grip. I have included a photo of both knives for comparison. $1800.00

    ********************************************************************************************

    C362. CONFEDERATE CAPTURED D-GUARD BOWIE KNIFE: This Confederate stag-handle D-Guard Bowie knife is 16 inches long with a 12-inch blade, and is complete with its original brown leather sheath that still has the original belt loop. The knife was captured by Captain William Henry Sackett, 11th Connecticut Volunteer Infantry at the battle of New Bern, NC. and sent home as a war trophy. It has been in the family up until 2016 when it was sold. Captain Sackett fought in several more battles and died during the battle of Petersburg.  The knife is accompanied with a Letter of Provenance as well as a letter from the family. Additionally, there is a binder with the complete history of the knife and Captain Sackett. $6500.00

    ********************************************************************************************

    C367. CONFEDERATE IMPORTED MOLE NAVAL CUTLASS: This is a Confederate imported Mole Naval Cutlass. It has a checkered two-piece leather grip, brass guard & pommel, tapered steel blade stamped "MOLE" and the rectangle stamp enclosing "COURTNEY & TENNENT CHARLESTON, S.C." The MOLE make is also on the face of the guard but is not visible because it is under the original leather blade washer. This is one of the best examples I have seen in a while and is complete with an original leather scabbard with the brass tip and throat. The hilt is tight with a nice even patina; the pressed leather grips are in near-mint condition; the blade is nick-free with strong markings. The scabbard is complete with all original brass mounts and retention staple, and a complete stitched reverse seam. It does show some expected leather loss, but its complete. It is very rare to find this cutlass complete with an original scabbard, especially one in near-mint condition. $6900.00

    C366. THIRD MODEL VIRGINIA MANUFACTORY SABER ALTERED FOR CONFEDERATE CAVALRYVirginia Manufactory sabers were originally produced from 1804 thru 1821.  The State of Virginia issued these to their State cavalry.  There were three models of this pattern saber: the first having a very large 40.5-inch blade, the second model had very similar blade but a peened “birds head” pommel and the third model was produced in 1808 and was made until 1821. The State of Virginia contracted with Ames of Chicopee, Massachusetts in 1860 for cavalry saber to be altered. The Ames company was to slim the blade and re-sheath them with an iron scabbard with brass mounts. This is a Virginia Manufactory third model saber converted by Ames. It is a beautiful piece with its curved blade and an Ames made scabbard. The grip is 95% plus original leather with 100% original single-strand brass wire. The handle is tight and the pommel is undisturbed. The blade has an even gray patina and there are a few sword nicks on the blade. The Ames produced scabbard is minty with no damage at all.  There is no dings, bumps, or rust, and the brass scabbard mounts have a gorgeous patina. This is a 100% original untouched Civil War altered Virginia Manufactory Saber. $4900.00
