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.  

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
treasure ........

OLD SOUTH   ~    All original and complete Virginia Manufactory
Musket. Produced originally as a flintlock musket ..... These early birds
were shipped all over the South and some even went up North to Yankee
land.  I'm thinking from the style of conversion this one could have went
North originally.  Nice looking example with working action and displays
great.  This one shows some wear and no doubt fired in anger ..... I love
the sling swivels.  

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.  

GEORGIA COLT   ~    Model 1860 Colt Army Revolver with nice working
action and original wood grips.  I like the attic look and patina and has all
matching serial numbers except the barrel.  Not sure if some Georgia Johnny
found a damaged Colt and made him a fixer upper or had two Colts and mixed
up the parts.  If it was all matching this would be a very nice revolver but being
mismatched .... I am going to penalize this smoke wagon ....  

$600.00   ON HOLD
FARM FRESH   ~    You can't have a serious Civil War Collection without an
example of the this workhorse long arm.  This was the staple musket of the Civil
War and here is a very nice attic example fresh out of the woods.  The Model
1855 Rifle-Musket was the first U.S. Military arm firing the .58 minie bullet we all
love to dig.  This example has nice visible lock plate markings and crisp action.  
The stock has some honest service wear .... the kind I like to see.  Survived the
War in good shape but no doubt fired in anger and was there.  The Maynard
System is still intact and has long range site.  The best part is the

YANKEE ARTILLERY    ~      Yankee Artillery Shell Jacket with arsenal
stamp and in very good condition.  This example is also a size 3 ..... hard to find
a bigger size shell jacket on the market.  Most at the shows are size 2 ...... The
colors are still bright with very nice liner and all the buttons are still reporting for
duty.  Uniforms add a splash of color to War Rooms and Displays ....

That sung, I do love this New York Yankee Belt Rig ..... It has eye appeal like no
other and displays with a screaming "YANKEE YODEL" ...... All the leather is in
good shape and the closure tabs are not broke.  The cartridge box has both tins
and the box was made without a tool pouch.  The "US" plate is an early puppy
stud with looks like a name or initials scratch carved in the lead.  This is an
untouched beautiful set that someone will cherish.  

NORTH CAROLINA REBEL    ~   Beautiful Confederate Tin Drum
Canteen originally sold by The Horse Soldier in Gettysburg, PA.  ........  The tin
body has carved name and research was done by the Horse Soldier.  Included
with the Confederate Canteen is the original partial leather sling, Horse Solider
research paperwork, and still has their original sales tag.  Just got this REBEL
RELIC in on trade and
REBEL PRICED .........
