U647. GETTYSBURG,  LITTLE ROUND TOP - PRESENTATION SWORD BELONGING TO LIEUTENANT  COL. JAMES C. RICE: The existence of this sword and the fact it survived the war was just discovered. It is a Horstmann M1850 Staff & Field, Heavily Curved Blade with a Silver-Foiled Scabbard. The hilt is the standard designed with shark-skin grip and triple wire with a standard etched blade marked Horstmann on both sides, and a good amount of original frosting. The Silver-Foiled Scabbard has rarely been seen and is more properly referred to as “close plating.” John Thillmann writes about this style Horstmann sword and scabbard in his book on Civil War Army Swords; pages 328-329. The scabbard body is original to the sword, fits like a glove and shows evidence of being carried. It has uncommon fancy brass mounts which retain original screws. In fact, you can see plating worn-off in areas exposing the underlying steel. This is especially noticeable between the top two mounts where the carrying officer would hold the scabbard. As of result, the engraved presentation, which is on the back side of the scabbard, is worn down and not noticeable at first, which account for its unknown existence for so long.  On close examination the presentation reads:

Lieut. Col. Rice, Forty-fourth Regiment N. Y. S. V. Presented by his Albany Friends.'

Most of the presentation swords during the early years of the Civil War were not fancy as those seen in later years. Often they were standard sword with maybe a fancier scabbard, and the presentation engraved on or between the mounts.

Rice was born in Worthington, Mass., Dec. 27, 1829. He attended school, but was mainly self-educated until he entered Yale, where he graduated in 1854. He engaged in teaching for a while at Natchez, Miss., became literary editor of a newspaper, and then commenced the study of law. A year later he removed to New York City, where he was admitted to the bar in 1856 and began to practice. When the Civil War began, Rice enlisted as a private on 28 May 1861 in the 39th New York Infantry Regiment quickly, was chosen adjutant and becoming a Captain of Company B and fought at the First Battle of Bull Run. Rice was mustered out of the 39th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment on 12 Sep 1861. The next day Rice became lieutenant colonel of the newly formed 44th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment (also known as People's Ellsworth Regiment).

Shortly afterward he became colonel of the regiment; he led it in the Peninsula Campaign at Yorktown, Hanover Court House, Gaines' Mill, and Malvern Hill. At the Second Battle of Bull Run (Manassas), Colonel Rice took command of the 3rd Brigade, 1st Division, V Corps when its commander, Daniel Butterfield took command of the consolidated 1st and 2nd Brigades and other ranking officers were wounded on the second day of battle. Rice returned to command of the 44th New York and led it at the battles of Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville.

At the Battle of Gettysburg, Rice and his regiment were sent to the defense of Little Round Top. During the fighting, brigade commander Colonel Strong Vincent was mortally wounded and Rice once again assumed command of the 3rd Brigade, 1st Division, V Corps and led it for the remainder of the battle. He performed distinguished service at Gettysburg while commanding a brigade during the second day's fight, by holding the extreme left of the line against repeated attacks and defending Round Top from a flank movement. For this he received a Brigadier-General's commission in the volunteer army Aug. 17, 1863.

In March, 1864 General Rice was in command ofthe 2nd Brigade, 4th Division, V Corps which he led in the advance on Mine Run and in the operations in the Wilderness, and was mortally wounded at Laurel Hill, VA. As he lay dying he muttered the words "turn me over that I may die with my face to the enemy." He died on the Spotsylvania battlefield on May 10, 1864. He was buried at Albany Rural Cemetery, Menands, New York.

On receiving his appointment in the 44th  New York, Lieut. Col. Rice was the recipient of a beautiful sword, belt, &c., from the ladies and gentlemen of Albany. The following account of the presentation is taken from the Albany Evening Journal of October 19th, 1861:

A large company of ladies and gentlemen met at the house of A. McClure last evening, on the occasion of the presentation of sword, &c., to Lieut. Col. Rice, of the Ellsworth regiment. Among those present were Gov. Morgan, Hon. Erastus Corning, John G. Saxe, Esq., and other distinguished citizens. The Presentation Address was made by Mrs. William Barnes, who spoke with great feeling and in a vein of patriotic fervor, which stirred the hearts of all who listened. It will be long before the recipient will forget her eloquent words and impressive counsels. Lieut. Col. Rice responded in an address marked at once by earnestness and scholarly finish. He pledged those present that the sword, of which he was the recipient, should return to its scabbard, when the war was ended, untarnished; and that no friend should have cause to blush over his record. He was deeply affected, and spoke with the pathos of earnest feeling.

"The sword is beautifully finished, and bears the following inscription: 'Lieut. Col. Rice, Forty-fourth Regiment N. Y. S. V. Presented by his Albany Friends.'

The wear on the sword and scabbard indicates it was carried by RIce, and most likely saw service in the early battles of the Civil War to possibly include Gettysburg.

Silver plated scabbard are difficult to photograph, so I apologies for the quality of the photos. The sword looks better when held in your hands.

a binder completed of all military records for Rice, and a CD Disk of the history of the 44th New York Regiment is included. This is a momentous find and extremely important historic artifact related to the American Civil War and the Battle of Gettysburg. $18,000.00

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

U651. AMES M1860 NAVAL CUTLASS & SCABBARD: This is an Ames M1860 Naval Cutlass complete with the original scabbard. The hilt is tight with 100% original leather and no wire, which is common. Its rack number is 12M 655. The blade is Ames marked and dates 1862, but no inspection mark making this most likely a state or Army purchased cutlass.

It has a few soft spots, but no breaks, and has taken on a brown patina to the leather. It is not often that you find a cutlass complete with the scabbard. $1300.00

U673. GETTYSBURG - ROBY PRESENTATION M1850 STAFF & FIELD SWORD, CHAPLAIN 111TH NEW YORK INFANTRY: This sword came out of a long-time collection of New York State identified swords, and a search of records at the National Archives, as well as all Civil War data base files, reveal only one Field & Staff Officers associated with this name.

John Nelson Brown

 Chaplain 111th New York Volunteer Infantry

The presentation reads:

Presented to

Lieut J. N. Brown

by H. S. Brown

He is the only Staff & Field officer (Chaplain) associated with this name for all New York regiments, as well as all other State troops fighting for the Union. Chaplain Brown was mustered in August 1862 and was with the regiment when it surrendered at Harper’s Ferry in September 1862. He was present for the Battle of Gettysburg, and is documented as being on the front line preaching to the soldiers, and giving comfort to the injured and dying during the battle. He would be present during the Battle of the Wilderness and Spotsylvania, as well as Cold Harbor and the Siege of Petersburg.

This style sword was authorized for carry by all S & F officers regardless of rank, and since Chaplain's did hold dual rank in the Civil War and were assigned to a Staff & Field position, the sword is appropriate for him as a Lieutenant and Chaplain. The identity of the presenter H. S. Brown is currently unknown, but most likely is a relative.

The sword is made by Roby, Chelmsford Massachusetts. The hilt is tight and retains good traces of original gold wash, and has 100% original shark-skin grip and triple strand wire. The blade is bright and frosty with outstanding etching. The scabbard is dent free, retains all original mounts, and the presentation on the top Roby marking are east to read. Included with the sword is a binder containing historical information, and Browns’ military and pension file.  This sword has been hidden away for many years in a private collection and only recently surfaced for sale.  Here is an opportunity to not only own a piece of Civil War history, but a sword carried by a Chaplain during the pivotal battle of Gettysburg. $5800.00

U700. TOMES, SON & MELVAIN CAVALRY OFFICER SABER: This is an import Cavalry Officer Saber retailed by Tomes, Son & Melvain, New York; 1859-1864. It is a typical import saber, but with exceptional etching. The faint Tomes, Son & Melvain retailer mark is pen-etched in the ricasso area. Continue up the blade to find a knight in armor, an eagle holds an E. Pluribus Unum banner, cross musket, a sword, and the head of an Alligator. The Alligator head is very unusual and makes this a possible pre-war purchased by a Southern officer. On the opposite side of the blade is an unfurled flags, U. S., a rider less horse, a crossed sword and bugle, and the head of an eagle with a large beak.  All this etching is visible to the eye, but faint.

U728.  SAUERBIER RISING PHOENIX STAFF & FIELD OFFICER SWORD: This is a very rare hilt for a staff & field officers sword, and a design only used by Sauerbier and Emerson & Silver of New Jersey. Of the few known examples, it is common to find features unique to either maker, leading many to think the design was a joint venture. The etching style is light and most likely done by Emerson & Silver for Sauerbier. The rising phoenix hilt has the black leather grip and triple stand. The blade is lightly etched, Sauerbier marked, and has several areas of dark spotting, but major pitting. The skull & cross bone style scabbard is in great shape with all original mounts.  $2850.00

During his time of service, the regiment left the state and served in the Provisional Brigade, Afcercrombie’s Division, in the defense of Washington from October 1862 in the District of Washington. This short stay in the military accounts for the high quality condition of this sword. The hilt is the large version Foot Officers style with 100% original shark-skin grip and double-strand wire.

U734. M1840 MUSICIAN SWORD – EMERSON & SILVER / HORSTMAN: This M1840 Musician sword was made by Emerson & Silver, but retailed by Horstman. It is an early piece most likely made prior to or at the beginning of the Civil War since it has the early Key Stone mark of Emerson & Silver, a metal scabbard with the two rivet top mount and the three rivet drag, and Horstman PHILa mark. The hilt it tight with all brass having matching patina. The 28 inch blade has a nice gray patina, no nicks, and a sharp point. The scabbard has much of the original finish and the drag has several dents indicating it was carried. The majority of Musician swords you will see were made by Ames, so it is rare to find one made by Emerson & Silver and retailed by Horstman. At this price, you can’t go wrong. $350.00

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

U735. M1850 FOOT SWORD: This M1850 Foot Officer sword was found with a Confederate scabbard; however, the sword is not Confederate made, but has unique feature that indicated it was made for an officers from a southern state, either prior to or at the beginning of the Civil War. Many northern manufactures were filling contracts for southern officers and their states, and often altered the maker mark or left them off to conceal their identify. This sword is marked PARIS; however, there were no retainers in Paris France selling sword to either the Union or Confederacy and this mark exist to only hide the identity of the true maker, which was Roby. To date, this is the only known example of this bogus mark. One might ask: How do you know it is a Roby sword?  If you do a side-by-side comparison, you will see the grip and wire style conforms to Roby and the etching style and pattern well.  I have attached several photos of etching on a marked Roby and when you do a comparison you see the similarities. The guard is tight with original shark-skin grip and wire. The blade is bright with great etching, but the quality of the steel is not up to the standard Roby sword and there is a great casting flaw by the etched U.S.  ALso, there are corn stocks etched in the blade. Obviously, the sword did not meet the quality of a Roby and was sold south.  The Confederate scabbard has since been reunited with a Confederate blade, so only the sword is for sale. What an interesting sword! $475.00

U736. IDENTIFIED - 176TH PENNSYLVANIA VOLUNTEER MILITIA M1850 FOOT OFFICERS SWORD: This Model 1850 Foot Officer Sword is identified to Lieutenant Phillip W. Flores of the 176th Pennsylvania Volunteer Militia. The complete grouping was discovered in an estate in Reading, PA.  Phillip W. Flores was born August 9, 1832 in Dillingersville, PA and died February 24, 1908. He enlisted in the 176th Pennsylvania Volunteer Militia in October of 1862 and was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant of Company K on December 6, 1862. He was honorably discharged August 18, 1863 as a 1st Lieutenant. After his service, he worked for the Internal Revenue Service and also spent much time studying and writing about local history. He had an active part in the formation of the Lehigh County Historical Society. The sword is complete with its original leather scabbard and all mounts; however, the drag is loose because it’s missing a screw. The sword is marked "Iron Proof" and the number 88 on the spine and has frosty etching and no rust. The scabbard drag is also marked number "88”. Sword is in excellent condition and very tight. When discovered, it was found with a nicely framed original lithograph Honorable Discharge for Phillip W. Flores. It was dated 1883 at bottom right and is a piece of art by itself.  It is in an old frame which measures 35" x 29." Also, there is a tin-type (Sixth Plate: 2.75 x 3.25 inches (7 x 8 cm) image and a framed image presumed to be Phillip W. Flores. Included is an original marriage certificate for Emma Flores: Certificate is dated 1898. I would presume this is a daughter or granddaughter. Note that Emma Flores was from Dillingersville, PA., which is where Phillip Flores was born and died. The 176th Pennsylvania Volunteer Militia militia regiment, composed of seven companies from Lehigh county and three from Monroe, was mustered in at Philadelphia in Nov., 1862, for nine months, and left for Suffolk, Va., the same month. It joined the force which moved under Gen. Foster, from New Berne to Charleston and was employed in guard, picket and other duties in this vicinity during its entire term of service. At Harrisburg Aug. 18, 1863, it was mustered out.

The grouping includes the sword, the framed discharge document, the tin-type, framed image, and the daughters marriage certificate, which helps tie the entire group together. Shipping will require addition packing at $100.00 and is figured into the price. If you are able to pick it up in Phoenix, I will deduct the $100.00 from the price. $2200.00
