  4. smthwsn.jpg (56195 bytes)smthwsnrev.JPG (52651 bytes)smthwsnpntdte.JPG (65361 bytes)smthwensrl.JPG (62780 bytes)A Very nice condition Smith and Wesson .32 cal.  Model #2 Army revolver.  These were extremely popular with Civil War officers that wanted to carry a "metallic cartridge" handgun.  Civil War General George Armstrong Custer carried a pair of these, and "Wild Bill" Hickock was carrying one when he was killed during a "Poker Game" in Deadwood, Dakota Territory.  This example is in very nice condition with crisp, strong marks, and excellent original Rosewood Grips.  Serial number is "9677".--$850.

Model 1842 Harpers Ferry 3-band percussion smoothbore musket.  The metal is clean overall, but is beginning to darken with age.  The lockplate is marked "Harpers Ferry - U.S. - 1852" and the barrel is dated "1848".  The walnut stock is very pretty with just the normal small bumps and marks of field service.  The action still works as perfectly as during the Civil War.  This is exactly the type muskets that the Confederates would have found stored in the Harpers Ferry Arsenal, and this one has every likelihood of having been C.S. carried.  It would have fired either a .69 cal. musket ball - buck and ball - or straight "buck"--$1,295.

Model 1849 Colt Pocket revolver.  This revolver has an all matching {INCLUDING THE WEDGE} serial number of "182388" which is very desirable EARLY 1859 production, and considering that the revolver is out of this local area - makes it highly likely that it was Confederate carried.  It has a smooth - gently aging grey-brown patina with traces of remaining cylinder scene, and also traces of silver wash on the brass trigger guard.  The revolver has crisp action, and a great bore.  There are 9 notches cut around the butt - You have to wonder what that means !!--$1,150.SOLD

Bond - London" and has Confederate marks on the barrel, and C.S. type Roman numerals under the barrel bands.  The musket was carried by John Gill Dailey, and has his initials carved into the stock at one location and his entire name and regiment carved into the wood opposite the lockplate.  John Dailey was 22 years old and was a member of Co. "K" - 6th N.C.INF., and was wounded at Sharpsburg - fought at Gettysburg - was captured at Rappahannock Station on 11-7-1863, and was confined in prison at Point LookOut, MD. until exchanged on 2-10-1865.  This is as nice a Confederate Enfield as I have seen in a long time.--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

Model 1812 military musket IN ORIGINAL FLINT with Mass. and Luke Harrington marks.  The musket has crisp action - sharp marks - and is dated "1821".  It came directly out of a North Carolina estate many, many years ago, and has the prettiest - never cleaned - attic grey/brown patina that you could hope to see.  Many young Confederates first left home carrying muskets of this type, and many were still being carried at the Battle of Mill Springs, KY.  I can't imagine any Civil War and earlier collector not being very proud of having this jewel in their collection.--$2,250.

Smith and Wesson 5-shot cartridge revolver.  This is early production with only the 1855 and 1859 patent dates present on the barrel.  The serial number is 10287 which is Civil War Era production.  Many Civil War officers carried the 32 cal.

  20. excelpinfire.JPG (58901 bytes)excelpinfirerev.JPG (56516 bytes)A local family just brought in this beautiful condition 7-MM folding trigger French Pinfire revolver.  It is literally "dripping" with original bluing, and everything you want is intact {loading door - ejector rod - and folding trigger.  This is a very similar weapon to the one carried by "Stonewall Jackson".  I am including an original pinfire cartridge for display BUT it is a slightly larger size and will not load {to protect the kiddies}.  This is going to be a centerpiece in someone's collection.--$595.

ROBINSON" contract.  Robinson's contract was for 30,000 weapons, but we don't know how many were actually delivered.  The musket has a nice "never been cleaned" - chocolate brown - attic patina.  I wish that we knew who "J.S." was - but unfortunately we don't.  Just a good un-messed with Federal .58 cal. 3-band rifled musket.--$1,250.SOLD

  33. 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.
  34. 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.
  35. 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.
  36. .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.
  37. 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.
