    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

    C284. MITCHELL & TYLER (BOYLE & GAMBLE) CONFEDERATE FOOT OFFICER SWORD: Boyle & Gamble of Richmond, Virginia was the Confederacy’s most prolific maker of officer’s swords and the company’s field and staff officer’s sword is easily the most recognized sword produced during the Confederate era.  The firm made swords for retail sale as well as government contracts.  The company also supplied their high quality officer’s swords for resale to jewelry and military outfitter, Mitchell & Tyler, located on Main Street in Richmond, Virginia.  Mitchell & Tyler did no manufacturing, but sold the very finest swords, belts, buttons, and even laces and silverware.  In short, they sold everything and more, necessary for the dapper Confederate Officer.  The sword shown here is an example of the sword Boyle and Gamble made for Mitchell and Tyler. It is a standard Foot Officer sword with its original scabbard. The hilt and pommel cap have a deep reddish-brown patina, and displays great casting flaws. The original leather blade washer keeps the un-etched blade tight. The scabbard is original is strong and retains all original mounts, which have the original retention pins. This is a great example of a Confederate Foot Officers sword made by Boyle & Gamble for retail by Mitchell & Tyler. $5595.00

    C314. CONFEDERATE DOG-RIVER M1840 NON-COMMISSION OFFICER (NCO) SWORD: This newly discovered sword surfaced in an estate sale in Michigan and is being featured for the first time. The sword is 37 inches long with a 30 1/2-inch blade. The brass hilt is comprised of four parts: the guard, the grip, the pommel cap and a top spinner nut, which screws to the tang to hold it all together. The casting on these parts is very crude and there are many flaws and filling marks on all parts. The blade is equally as crude! It is very wavy and uneven with filling marks the entire length of the blade and has a 27-inch unstopped fuller. When you run your fingers along the length of the blade your hand will go up and down due to its unevenness. The scabbard is exceptionally well made but has its flaws. The top mount has a glob of brass were the seam was brazed and you can see filing marks as will. The frog pin is crude and not as well definded as a Union sword and crudely brazed. The drag is equally as crude. The leather body was well made with cotton stitching, and under high magnification you can see tiny dimples running the entire length of the leather body.

    While at the Gettysburg show several well respected dealers of Confederate relics inspected this sword and agree it is Confederate made. Most likely an early production by Boyle & Gamble and limited in quantity due to the production cost. $5000.00

    C315. SECOND MODEL VIRGINIA MANUFACTORY SABER ALTERED FOR CONFEDERATE CAVALRY: Virginia 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 VirginiaManufactory second model saber converted by Ames. It is a beautiful piece with its curved blade and an Ames made scabbard. The grip is down to the wood with the smallest amount of original black leather, but 100% original single-strand copper wire. The handle is tight with a little wobble in the guard, and the pommel is undisturbed. The blade has an even brown 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. $4600.00

    C317. BOYLE & GAMBLE CAVALRY SABER: This is a Boyle & Gamble Cavalry Saber in near-mint condition. It is one of the best I have seen for sale in a long time. The scabbard is perfect, the blade is greats, and the grip and guard are in amazing condition.  It will be hard to find a better example. $5800.00

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

    C319. CONFEDERATE – BOYLE & GAMBLE FOOT OFFICERS SWORD: Boyle & Gamble was a well-known supplier of military goods for the Confederacy to include edge weapons.  They produced a variety of different swords at various quality and price points to be sold not only by them, but by other Southern retailers such as Mitchell & Tyler. The swords retailed by Mitchell & Tyler, though made by Boyle & Gamble, had a distinct grip style and hilt, which was a higher quality then a standard B & G sword. This sword is a rare find because it is the style produced for Mitchell & Tyler, but is acid etched Boyle Gamble & Co. Richmond, VA. The blade also is etched with VICTORY or DEATH with a shield with the word HOPE. On the reverse side is etched CS. The blade is 30 inches long and very straight with several dark spot and surface pitting and the etching is visible without magnification. The hilt and pommel cap are tight and the original leather is 100% complete with three twist of original wire under the pommel cap. On the face is the guard is the number 1 and you can see great sand-casting flaws. If it had an original scabbard this sword would be worth near $10,000, so I am looking for one.  In the meantime, the sword is for sale. $5900.00

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

    C322. CONFEDERATE D-GUARD SHORT NCO SWORD: This is a blacksmith made D-Guard short sword with great eye appeal. The style and length of the blade conforms to the size of a Sergeants sword, and is well made. The steel D-Guard is secured to the tang using a hex screw, which has kept the sword tight, and there a casting flaws and finishing marks on the guard. The six-inch grip is carved oak with stress creaks, but no breaks. The 23 3/4-inch blade is marked S & K and has a D C Anchor mark as well. There is a partial Confederate made scabbard, which has staple marks for the throat piece.  This is a great example of the length the South went to arm their soldiers.  Here is a Confederate D-guard sword at an extremely low price, and will looks great is Confederate D-Guard or sword collection.  $1200.00

    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 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

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

    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! $4500.00

The oak wood grip appears to be a tool handle with a steel ferrule, and the guard is thin brass. 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 is the first knife of this style I have seen. $900.00
