    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

    BRITISH PATTERN 1853 ENFIELD DRAGOON SABER / SWORD

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

    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

    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

    C320. CONFEDERATE SHORT ARTILLERY SWORD WITH STRONG SOUTHERN EYE APPEAL. This Confederate Short Artillery Sword is an absolute killer with picture perfect Southern sand-casting flaws and an awesome blade. Its patina has the look which is unique to “Confederate Brass” as a friend of mine would say, and is crudely made. This is how you want to find a southern sword with patina that shows it is over 150-years old! Take a look at my FAKES page and you will see reproduction do not have an aged natural patina because fake patina is chemical applied to fool.  Please compare my photos with those on internet auction sites and you will immediately see the difference.

    This style Confederate shortartillery sword is one of two known designs with CS in the cross-guard and is often called the “Star CS” artillery sword. It has many characteristics known to an authentic Confederate sword short sword: sand casting, a hollow grip which collapsed on itself when made, a hole in the guard allowing you to see the tang, tones of flaws, rich patina, and of course the smashed-down blurry looking CS, which the fakes cannot duplicate. The scabbard is missing in action. Please take the time to look at all the pictures and see the beauty of the crudeness.  This is the only marked “CS” weapon you can buy under $4,000.00 dollars and the last one that was sold went for $3850.00.  Confederate short artillery swords are one of my favorites!

    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 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
