CASED LONDON COLT NAVY MODEL REVOLVER.  The revolver is serial number "38480" and is all matching except for the wedge which is an old replacement.  This is very sought after " early 1850s" production and was very likely "C.S." carried considering that it is extremely early production and surfaced in the deep South.  The revolver is clean with crisp action and some cylinder scene remaining.  The case is in nice condition and is an original Civil War era case.  In the case is an original .36 cal. double cavity Colt bullet mold - an original tin for caps, - and an original brass powder flask.  Any "London" Colt Navy is rare to find, but a CASED London Navy is nothing less than SUPER-RARE to find.--$3,950.

  19. "1837" date 6-shot "Pepperbox" revolver.  These are clearly pre-Civil War, but I have seen numerous photographs of Confederates carrying these.

For Massachusetts - 1863 - U.S." and a deep, clear matching "1863" date on the barrel.  The eagle on the bolster is as crisp as new and the rifling will about cut your finger.  The original walnut stock is really pretty with 2 cartouches.  This is unquestionably a museum grade weapon.--$1,950.

  25. 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.
  26. 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.
  27. .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.
  28. 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.
