    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. $1300.00

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

    C334. CONFEDERATE - FOOT OFFICER’S SWORD: This is a Confederate Foot Officer’s sword from an unknown maker. It has a heavy pommel cap and guard with sand casting flaws; 100% original brown leather grip with twisted wire; and an import scabbard, which fits exactly to the blade. There is no movement in the hilt. The 30-inch blade has strong etching with a furled Confederate First national flag on one side and C S A on the other. Both sides have a flower, which resembles a Cherokee Rose (Rosa laevigata), the state flower of Georgia. This leads me to believe the sword was made in Georgia. The scabbard is an import. The leather is dry, but strong; has all original brass mounts, but is broker an inch above the drag. This can be professionally restored. This is a newly discovered Confederate sword in amazing condition! $8500.00

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

    C335. CONFEDERATE NAVAL CUTLASS: This is a Confederate Naval Cutlass, which is believed to have been made by Thomas Griswold. The blade has a smooth, gray patina, and the cast bronze grip and guard have a rich, never cleaned, aged patina. You can see great casting flaws along the seam, and the casting dimples from the sand-cast mold.  This is a very nice Confederate weapon in a rich aged, never cleaned, untouched condition. There currently is a similar cutlass for sale with a replaced smaller guard for $2250.00 and I have sold others at the price; however, this one is available for less. $1700.00

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

    C337. CONFEDERATE CS STAR SHORT ARTILLERY SWORD: This is an excellent condition, "CS" Star marked Confederate short artillery sword. The blade has a smooth, aged, gray/brown patina with virtually no pitting, a few small nicks and casting flaws.  The cast brass copper/bronze guard has a rich, aged, bronze/brown patina with a CS cast into the guard mid-way of the cross guard and a star cast into each side of the pommel, and “great” casting flaws. $2900.00

    C233. CONFEDERATE SHORT ARTILLERY SWORD: Confederate Short Artillery sword are one of the most affordable Confederate swords on the market. They have such a neat look and are a lot of value for your dollar. This is a Confederate copy of the M1832 Short Artillery sword. 24-inches long with an 18 x 2-inch wide blade. The blade is in amazing condition with nice patina. It has period sharpening, which indicates it was carried, and a few small nicks. The brass hilt is tight and shows great casting flaws. The tang is untouched and original. Simply a great example! $1700.00

    C280COLUMBUS, GEORGIA NAVAL IRON WORKS CUTLASS: This Confederate Naval Cutlass was made at the Columbus, Georgia Naval Iron Works. There are several known variations of knives/swords that were made at the Naval Iron Works.  The most common and well known of these is a cutlass that utilizes the identical blade and wooden grip pattern as shown here with an “S” shaped cross guard made of either brass or iron.  This is the iron guard version. There is some loose play in the guard, but the grip is tight and in near-mint condition. $2800.00

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

    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. $5600.00

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

    C287. ISAAC & Co. CONFEDERATE SABER: This is an Isaac & Co. Model 1853 cavalry saber, which the Confederate government purchased in England during the War Between the States. When you look at these sabers, always look to see it the Isaac & Co. mark is on the spine of the blade near the guard. This saber has that marks. The hilt has a nice patina and is tight, and the pressed leather grip show wear, but is very nice. The blade has a nice even patina and is fairly bright with no nicks or rust. The scabbard has an even brown patina with several dings and dents’, indicating it was carried. The scabbard did its job of protecting the blade. The last one I sold went for $4000.00; however, this is available for less. $3100.00

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

    C293. CONFEDERATE NAVAL CUTLASS BY THOMAS GRISWOLD & CO., NEW ORLEANS: This is one of the rarest Confederate Naval Cutlass on the market. Its grip is a brass cast fish scales copy of the Ames M1841 Naval Cutlass, but with rolled over edges and no rivets, and a pommel cap with an eagle and shield. It is 27 inches long with a double-edged 21 1/2 inches blade by 1 3/4 inches wide at the guard. It is makers marked Thomas Griswold & Co. New Orleans. It is quite sturdy with no play at all, and is absolutely authentic. Currently, there is another known example for sale for over $4000.00; this is available for less. $3400.00

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

    C300. DOG-RIVER CONFEDERATE ARTILLERY SABER: This Dog-River Confederate Enlisted Light Artillery Saber is extremely rare, and to date, I have only seen two examples and the other did not have a scabbard. The unique pommel cap and single-branch guard both have great casting flaws and file marks. The grip is shark skin, which is extremely rare. There is a small strand of double twisted wire under the pommel cap. The curved blade is wavy with an unstopped fuller. The scabbard is well made and high quality for being Confederate, and the lapped seam is barely visible. The metal body has original period paint with brass mounts and brass rings. The reverse side of the scabbard has a buff finish to the black and the brass has a copper-brown patina, whereas the front has a slight sheen to the black and the brass is mustard colored. This may have been a result of the front being dusted while hanging in a GAR HALL.  If you collect Confederate swords, especially Artillery sabers, this is a must! $5500.00

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

    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 Virginia Manufactory second model saber converted by Ames. It is a beautiful piece withits 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. $4500.00

    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
