Savage Navy Model Revolver.  It has a smooth gently aging grey-brown patina, and has an early serial number "1914" on the bottom side of the barrel.  This is the only place that I can make the serial out, so I'm really not sure if the other numbers matched or not.  The barrel markings remain crisp, and easily readable.  The grips are quite nice with no breaks, repairs, or serious cracks.  A slight trace of the inspector cartouche can still be seen on one grip.  The very complicated Savage action still works well, but does miss index every now and then.  This is a solid and attractive Savage Navy Model that will look great in your collection.--$1,450.SOLD

Model 1860 Colt Army revolver, serial #22164 and is all matching except for the wedge which is an old replacement.  Serial #22164 is the most desirable 1861-1862 production and is a very sought after 4-screw model that is correct for accepting a shoulder stock.  The revolver shows clear evidence of having been carried on many a campaign.  All corners are worn rounded, and it has several small dings and marks typical of a revolver that has seen lots of service.  It is highly likely that this revolver was southern carried based on where it turned up and its early serial number.--$1,650.00SOLD

Sharps Model 1853 "slanting breech" carbine sometimes referred to as "the John Brown model".  This type early slant breech Sharps carbines are often found having been Confederate used (like the one in the picture above).  This carbine has a smooth, gently graying aged patina on the metal and retains good, crisp action.  The long range site and the very long carbine sling hook attachment bar all remain intact.  The brass patchbox also remains intact, has a rich aged patina, and works perfectly.  The wood is complete and very nice, showing only the normal small dings and marks of actual field service.  This is a weapon that any Civil War collector, especially those liking southern used items, would be most pleased to have in their collection.--$2,850.SOLD

Model 1861 Springfield rifled musket.  This musket was brought in yesterday and was quite likely a captured and Confederate used weapon.  It has a smooth attic brown patina tip to tip and shows clear evidence of lots of service.  At some point, the original Model 1861 lockplate broke or malfunctioned and the Confederate soldier was able to procure a Model 1863 Springfield lockplate to replace it and keep the weapon serviceable.  The musket is also missing the front barrel band, but that piece is readily available.  With just a little TLC, this Model 1861 Springfield musket can be easily returned to its original state.  Once back as an original .58 cal. Model 1861 Springfield 3 band rifled musket, it will easily have a value of around $1,650.  Bargain priced to allow plenty of room for getting everything back in correct order.--$895.SOLD

Fayetteville,  and with the exception of the stock restoration under the front barrel band - is a completely original SUPER RARE Confederate manufactured Fayetteville C.S. rifled musket.  {And Is Priced A Long Way From $12,000.}--$5,500.SOLD

Austrian Model 1842 Engineer's Rifled musket.  The musket has a smooth - never cleaned - deep chocolate brown patina, and is the type weapon many Confederates carried the first two years of the Civil War.  I have never recovered a .69 cal. Austrian projectile anywhere but early Confederate Infantry camps.  Here is a nice, untouched, Confederate carried musket at a VERY reasonable price.--$850.SOLD

  50. Excellent condition non-excavated Springfield combination musket tool - perfect to display with your original Civil War musket.  Also, an original non-excavated .577 cal. Enfield trigger block with trigger.  Both items only.--$65.
  51. Very nice condition original .577 cal. Enfield musket tompion.  A fantastic final touch for your nice Enfield musket.--$65.SOLD
  52. Nice smooth chocolate brown attic patina on the metal of this .69 cal. Model 1842 smoothbore 3-band Springfield musket.  The lockplate is marked "U.S. - 1848 - Springfield" and the action still works well with a good strong spring.  The stock is quite attractive with a visible inspector cartouche and just the normal small dings and marks of service.  I just purchased this musket out of a North Carolina estate dating all the way back to the 1940 - 1950s era.  This is a weapon with that slick brown patina that some tasteful, gentle cleaning would make look significantly nicer.--$1,450.
  53. Attractive .69 cal. Potsdam musket dated "1826".  This one is out of an Ohio estate sale and has a smooth uncleaned attic patina.  A good number of these were purchased by the Governor of Ohio to arm troops from the state in early 1861 - some are even "OHIO" marked, but this one is unmarked.  The Ohio guys quickly realized that the rifled .58 cal. Springfield muskets were much better and more accurate and these ancient old muskets were soon replaced.  Confederates were also able to get some of these, and they used them until they were able to get the much superior and preferred .577 cal. Enfields.  This is a nice looking "early Civil War" weapon.--$895.
  54. .69 cal. Prussian Musket which was purchased and imported early in the war by the Governor of Ohio for the issue to Ohio troops as they marched off to war in 1861.  These muskets fired an absolutely massive projectile, and they were very quickly found to not be as accurate and serviceable as the smaller cal. Springfield muskets.  Over the years as relic hunters we have learned that when you recover the huge Prussian projectiles that you are certainly in an Ohio camp and could very well be about to recover an "OVM" beltplate.  This particular musket is marked "Potsdam" and dated "1837."  Although the musket was brought in to the shop by a local family, it was learned that the family's ancestry was not unexpectedly out of Ohio.  It has a smooth, dark, uncleaned patina and will display very nicely.--$975.
  55. Quite scarce .58 cal. "Providence Tool Co." - 1863 date Model 1861 3-band contract rifled musket.  This musket shows clear signs of having really been carried A LOT.  The metal has a smooth dark, attic brown patina with lockplate markings of "Providence Tool Co. - Providence, R.I. - 1863".  The markings are all visible, but worn down quite a bit from use.  The wood shows lots of use as well with corners rounded and all the normal bumps and bruises of a carried weapon.  The inspector's cartouche is worn, but you can still faintly make it out.  It is missing the rear sling swivel and has a "home grown" rear site.  This is a good, honest rare contract Civil War musket that without question "Saw The Elephant".--$1,150.
