TENNESSEE RIFLE ~ This is one scarce Confederate Rifle .... made
from the captured Harpers Ferry machinery in Nashville Tennessee. These
Overton Confederate Rifles are rare and I have been fortunate enough to have
taken apart and examine 4 of the handful known. There is a few more parts
rifles out there but the four I have examined I have all been extremely close in
construction and markings. This example is lock plate numbered 37 .... I have
examined 57 and 59 also. I have taken some pictures side by side with number
57 for comparison. If you look in Murphy & Madaus Book on Confederate Rifles
you will be able to see the characteristics of most of the known examples. This
weekend I examined #59 with similar markings and traits. I originally pulled this
rifle out of the woods and can share more pictures and story with serious buyer.
REBEL PRICE .......
TIME CAPSULE ~ Richmond three band musket with 1862 dated lock
plate and very nice maker strike. If you have ever wanted an unmolested
Confederate long arm that has had no restoration or molestation .... your there.
This example has not even had the dust and rust wiped. The stock and barrel
are Richmond products and no doubt this smoke pole made bad Yankees good
Yankees ..... The ram rod is an awesome Rebel Relic on it's own ..... It don't get
more Johnny than that ..... action still works and I love the undisturbed patina.
Hang this CS long arm on the wall and sleep well at night with your REBEL
RELIC PRICED treasure ........
$4,850.00 ON HOLD
SCARCE CONFEDERATE WEAPON ~ This example was found
in a home with another pike in Macon, Georgia. First time on the market and
one of only four known. I tried to take some full length pictures but they did not
look good. I will try some outside later this week. The "CSA" strike is strong and
displays with awesome eye appeal. The wood shaft is full length and the
grounding iron is missing but not sure if was ever even put on the shaft. The
blade is in fabulous condition and solid. If you have ever wanted a Confederate
Pike this is the end of the street and no upgrade possible. REBEL RELIC
LONE STAR REBEL ~ Stunning Mid 1800s Texas State Flag with gold
bullion trim. The owner sent me the flag along with a conservation and analysis
report from Heritage Conservation. The flag has been professionally framed
and is ready for display. Click on the pictures to read about the materials used
to make the flag and the conservation. The size of the flag is perfect for home
or office display. This would have been in my opinion, a local made flag like
many Confederate uniforms for a special unit. The owner is a collector and
partial trades will be considered. Rebel Yell if you have any questions or need
more information. REBEL RELIC PRICE ......
COOL CONSIGNMENT ~ The Ole Rebel mailbox just got loaded with
boxes of consignment items ...... Here is the first of many to come .... Colt Model
1851 Navy revolver with all matching serial numbers and check out the carved
grips. The mechanics are good with working action and strong barrel address.
Nice early Civil War production with original holster. The holster has "CS" and
writing in an oval. I have not even tried to figure out the name or whatever it
says. Great Civil War Colt that no doubt saw some action and fired in anger.
REBEL PRICED ......
$1,795.00 ON HOLD
REV WAR ~ Just got this beauty on consignment from a New York Family
..... The consignor sent me lots of information and I have photographed a few
pages ..... please click on picture #2 for information on this musket. This is a
scarce original flint Second Model Brown Bess in solid condition and REBEL
PRICED ....... Feel free to REBEL YELL for more information.
CONFEDERATE SECRETE SERVICE ~ One of two known .....
Nashville Plow Works Field & Staff Officer's Sword. The other example is
pictured in Albaugh's "CONFEDERATE SWORD" Book page 145. The sword
just recently surfaced from where it had been since it's capture from Lieut.
Young. I have the enough research to make a major motion picture on this
solider. I also have a signed letter from the family stating the history and
ownership. Another WORLD FAMOUS REBEL RELIC .......
EVERY REBELS CRAZY ABOUT AN EARLY SHARPS ~ I
think this one qualifies for Secondary Confederate Carbine ..... Gorgeous Rebel
Strong Model 1853 Sharps Carbine with the long saddle bar and crisp action.
This example has excellent condition and eye appeal with military inspector
mark. The bore is excellent and has clear maker and patent dates. The brass
hardware give it the display pow and many of these carbines were already Down
South with the fighting men ..... Awesome piece of American History .....
REBEL PRICE ..... No upgrade ever needed .... one shot one kill !!
$5,495.00 LAY AWAY
GOOD OLE #45 ~ Confederate Percussion Cap Box with classic
Southern construction we love. Big wide single belt loop and crude hand
finished brass closure stud. The leather closure tab is solid and there is even
some Rebel wool still inside this box. No doubt this cap box was strapped
around John Reb. and saw the blood and guts. The left corner has some wear
and tear from service ... nothing bad mentioned fro accuracy. REBEL
ATTIC BLACK AND STILL READY TO ATTACK ~ North
Carolina made Confederate Cavalry Sword with original leather and wire grip.
This is an extremely nice Confederate Sword with no modern restoration or
screwing around. The blade is very nice with pretty grey patina and the
slashing edge is free of battle scars. The scabbard is minty with classic brass
hardware and original to the sword. The tip of the sword has a little 'wave" but
original and mentioned just to be nit picky. WORLD FAMOUS REBEL
RELIC PRICED .... Guys REBEL VALUE .... plenty of meat left on this bone.
CONFEDERATE NAVY ~ Super scarce Confederate Naval Cutlass
with original scabbard and maker marked. The original grip has some wear but
untouched and still very nice. The full basket guard is in exceptional condition
and the blade has some original shine. The scabbard is in good condition with
some leather wear here and there. If your collection needs a Rare Rebel
Confederate Naval Centerpiece this one should float your boat ....... REBEL
CONFEDERATE SUPPLIER ~ Civil War Period Courtney & Tennent
marked Double Barrel Shotgun. I have been buying Southern used shotguns
now for 8 years and it's time to let a few out ..... as I have over 25 in the shop.
Here is an excellent example of a major Confederate supplier of Arms. If you
have seen the Civil War Book on ammunition there was plenty of shotgun ammo
being made and records show soldiers still were using them at the end of the
war. I love this shotgun and if interested give a REBEL YELL .......
$4,850.00 ON HOLD
AMERICAN CLASSIC ~ One of the most popular of all American
Antique Firearms ...... Model 1841 Mississippi Rifle. I have had this one for a
long time and when I bought it had oral history of Tennessee Confederate
History. These Remington 41s were already in Southern Arsenals prior to
Northern Aggression and no doubt many were in the hands of the Southern
Boys. This example has crisp action with visible lock plate markings and barrel
proof. Has the look of a tried and true Civil War service rifle with both sling
swivels. The new book on British Civil War Imports has information on the letter
"Q" in front of the trigger guards of weapons that have been sent back to
Southern Arsenals for repair .... this rifle has been bored to .69 caliber and no
doubt will make someone a beautiful POOR MAN'S CONFEDERATE RIFLE ......
REBEL PRICE ......
LONG ARM OF THE CONFEDERACY ~ Nice honest P-53
Enfield Musket that I picked up here locally along with a Import pinfire that I will
be listing on akinsamericana.com ...... Nice crisp action with original rod and
both sling swivels. The stock is nice with no burn out around the bolster and
overall in good shape. All correct American Civil War markings and strong
overall eye appeal. REBEL PRICED for unbeatable value .......
PORT HUDSON REBEL RELIC ~ Nice excavated Confederate
"ROPE BORDER" waist belt plate with collection note found at Port Hudson, La.
Pleasing example with some bends but displays great with nice even patina.
Just got this beauty in on consignment ...... REBEL PRICE
TEXAS RIFLE ~ Fresh out of the "Bushes" Confederate Rifle with
soldier's name engraved on the side plate. This rifle was not a surprise as the
family knew the history when I bought it. The rifle has some really neat things
going on from the copper ram rod and hammer screw, the hammer itself, lock
plate, and overall attic black condition. I have not .... turned a screw on this
rifle. It does have matching "14" assembly numbers which could have been on
the rifle in it's original condition or Southern marks when they cut her down and
did the lock plate conversion. Nice Confederate used rifle with engraved
identification from the Lone Star ....... REBEL PRICED .....
$2,495.00 ON HOLD
SOUTHERN STEEL ~ Strong ..... Southern Strong ..... It don't get
stronger than Southern Strong. Probably why the media and Big Gov. want it
down and silenced. Not today on REBEL RELICS ... Dixie is still flying high at
the top of the page and Rebel got a smoking Virginia Confederate Bowie. It's
published with all the measurements and history and even a picture of a Reb
Freedom Fighter carrying one. If there is REBEL BLOOD and PRIDE still
pumping in your veins .... give Ole Rebel a Rebel Yell ..... REBEL PRICE
CONFEDERATE CAVALRY ~ Beautiful attic condition Richmond
Carbine .... Richmond Arsenal correct with crisp action and mechanics. This
carbine is dated 1864 with brass butt plate and nose cap. I love the hard to find
late War date and notice the rear swivel was removed by the solider and a
carved bone piece inserted. Rebels must not have liked the swivels ..... attic
examples seem to never have them and usually show signs of period removal.
My guess is they made noise and/or the sling had long since been worn out or
uncomfortable. If you love untouched Confederate Firearms and missing a Reb
Carbine in your collection ...... REBEL YELL ..... REBEL PRICE ......
GEORGIA BOY ~ Nice solid condition excavated Georgia State Seal
Confederate Box Plate. This example has a pleasing patina and very good lead
back. I love the soldier standing guard after all the years ...... Scarce example
and one you will be proud to own. REBEL PRICE .....
GETTYSBURG MUSKET ~ Just picked this one up on consignment
from New Jersey Collector, Michael Kramer. Very nice H&P conversion musket
with fantastic Gettysburg Carving on the stock. The musket is a very nice
example all on it's own and with the G-Burg carving this will make someone an
iconic centerpiece for their collection. Mechanically sound musket with crisp
action and strong lock plate and conversion marks. Visible cartouche opposite
the lock and barrel proof. The 1862 date is strong and really displays like a
museum piece. REBEL PRICE .....
ONE AND DONE ~ This example is for the guy who wants original,
untouched, attic, in the black, no issues, and nothing to explain REBEL RELICS
....... Gorgeous Pre Civil War Militia Eagle Buckle with everything patriotic a
collector could want ...... We got the American Eagle, Stars, and Shield on a
beautiful stamped brass buckle. Has to be the prettiest patina on one of these I
have ever seen. REBEL PRICE .....
CAJUN REBEL ~ Nice honest Confederate Sword with original leather
and wire wrap. Maker strike is clear and one of the better ones I have seen.
Anybody got a brass scabbard? REBEL PRICED ......
SCARCE IMPORT ~ Very nice two band Tower with crisp action and
mechanically sound. Very nice example with smooth metal and strong marks ....
very nice bore and ready for display. If your collection needs a high condition
Import Rifle ..... give Ole Rebel a Rebel Yell ...... REBEL PRICED .....
THIS WEEK ...... I am working on getting the new
retail shop open so pictures and write ups are gonna
be quick ..... If you need more pictures and
information ........ PLEASE REBEL YELL ...... I

ANOTHER UPDATE LATER TODAY ....
5 NEW ITEMS TODAY .... MAYBE A LATE NIGHT
NEW REBEL RELIC TOO .... CHECK BACK
WAR TROPHY ~ Very nice Confederate side knife fashioned from a
early 1800s eagle head sword blade. The blacksmith left the patriotic blade
designs and crafted a very solid and functional handle. The blade is nicely
peened and solid with period leather sheath. Comes with a letter from Steve
Silvia on the history and of previous ownership. REBEL PRICED .....
CONFEDERATE REVOLVER ~ Confederate Import Kerr Revolver
with nice crisp action and some original finish here and there. This example has
original wood grips and all the parts are original. Notice the L.A.C. proofs on the
cylinder, barrel, and frame. Matching serial numbers .... I love the number
#3999 ..... These revolvers were prized by Confederates and this one survived
in wonderful condition with some honest wear. REBEL PRICED ........
ANOTHER WORLD FAMOUS REBEL RELIC ~ Beautiful
Confederate Bowie with untouched attic condition and strong display power.
The brass guard has a beautiful patina and the hilt is solid with undisturbed
peened pommel. The grip is unmolested with original wire and partial worn
original grip. This is the example published in the book Confederate Bowie
Knives. If you love your REBEL RELICS PUBLISHED ...... REBEL YELL .....
