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.  

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

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 .........

TENNESSEE REBEL    ~     Nashville made Confederate Cavalry Sword
with period razor sharp blade ..... We all know who the Tennessee Cavalry
General was that loved razor sharp blades.  It truly is not a big Rebel Stretch for
a Tennessee made cavalry sword with a razor sharp blade to have been one of
General Forrest's Trooper's sword.  Nashville made swords are scarce as Yanks
invaded so early in the War of Northern Aggression.  Nashville leather was thin
and very few Plows or Hills have original leather and this one is worn to the
original wood grip.  Looks to have been carried long after the leather worn out
as the handle is smooth and dark patina.  Solid example of a cool and scarce
Confederate Tennessee made sword .......  

SCARCE SLAVE TAG   ~    Very scarce Slave Tag in good condition and I
have all the information on location.  Found this information online
....."1810-1828 LAFAR: Slave Tags from 1810 to 1828 are stamped "Lafar", for
John Joseph LaFar, a well known Charleston Silversmith (b. 1781, d. 1849).
From 1814 to 1828, Tags were square in even-numbered years, and
diamond-shaped in odd years."   I will also share the Digger's name ..... Tag was
bent when found but was gently eased back to original shape.

WEST TENN BAD BOYS   ~     Strong ... Very Strong Confederate
Veteran Ladder Badge .... This is has rarity and cool all in one Rebel Relic ....
hard to believe any of these guys made it through the War.  If you have the
book "Collecting the Confederacy" handy there is some information on these
killers.  You may never see one of these again on the market.  

$2,850.00    SOLD
KENTUCKY RAIDER   ~    Civil War Blacksmith crafted spear point bowie
with iron cross guard.  I love the cross guard with the file finish and one up/one
down design.  The blade is hefty with single thin fuller in the middle of the
blade.  Original handle is strong with solid feel and rich patina.   I picked this
bowie up at the Baltimore Show and the seller said it surfaced in Western
Kentucky with Morgan Cavalry Family history.  Here is an excellent opportunity
to own an untouched attic Southern Bowie .......

$895.00    LAY AWAY
MOVING TARGET    ~     I hate to type this ..... But ..... This Yankee is a
good looking trooper.  Very nice clear 1/6 plate tin type of a mounted Yankee
Cavalry Trooper ready for the Southern Invasion.  I love the sword and saddle
bags and an image you will find yourself really enjoying.  Gives us a personal
look see at the real deal ..... Thermo case is in great shape with bright pillow
and snaps shut.  Last picture is the threesome of Yank Horse Soldiers I picked
up at Baltimore.  

BACK IN BLACK   ~   Pick your favorite REBEL RELIC CLICHÉ .... in the
black, attic, untouched, unmolested, out of the woods, ..... Gorgeous Rebel
Strong Confederate Belt and Flap Holster ..... The leather belt and holster look
to have been made from the same cow.  They have absolutely been together
and a pure Southern Born and Breed Confederate Belt Rig.  The holster looks
to be for a S&W #2 Revolver.  

RICHMOND FIND   ~    Excavated pair of Civil War Shoes from the
Richmond, Va. area.  I decorated around them and they really display well and
have to be a super rare item to find.   

LIVING IN THE WILD WILD WEST   ~    Colt Model 1878 "Frontier"
Revolver with beautiful original grips.  Early production serial number and strong
Hartford barrel address.  Nice action and mechanically sound Colt revolver.  
This revolver shows some honest usage and picture #7 shows a letter or two on
the frame .... maybe someone added "US" to the side.  Great looking Colt that
will look great with your Winchester or Trapdoor display.  

$2,250.00    ON HOLD
OLD WORK HORSE    ~    Colt Model 1860 Army Revolver with working
action and all matching serial numbers ..... including the wedge.  Surfaced in the
South with Southern history of usage.  This Colt has the Southern used look ....
it is tired with worn barely visible barrel address and cylinder has just serial
numbers visible.  The original walnut grips are still in good condition with military
inspector mark visible on both sides.  There is a name hand stamped on the
bottom of the grips ..... I found one Rebel and several Yanks with this name.  
Tired Old Colt .44 Revolver with possible CS usage .......

ALABAMA NATIONAL TREASURE    ~   Gorgeous Alabama half stock
rifle produced by well known Confederate gun maker and repairer Christian
Kreutner of Mobile, Alabama.  Pre War Mr. Kreutner was one of only two Mobile
Alabama Gun Makers and produced a limited amount of rifles for the
Confederacy.  Receipts show he also repaired rifles and shotguns for the
Confederate Army. Alabama was short on arms for it's soldiers and government
agents went door to door to find serviceable arms.  This half stock would have
been a prize position for any Alabama Sharp Shooter ..... I love this rifle and the
condition is gorgeous with strong maker name on barrel.  This is a rifle that any
Confederate Collector, Antique Arms, Southern Antique Arms, or Alabama
Collector will cherish.  

DOWN SOUTH ALABAMA    ~     Excavated Alabama "MAP ON TREE"
Button with stand up shank and pretty face.  One of the best ones I have seen
in along time.  This one should have a home back in Alabama .....

GO WEST   ~    1st Model 1873 Winchester Carbine with strong mechanics
and working action.  The condition is wonderful for such an early carbine as
these were very sought after weapons and used hard.  This carbine is all
original with cleaning rods in the butt stock.  It is the very desirable 44 caliber ....
the one all collectors want in their collection.  This carbine is a very iconic
firearm in American History and appropriate for Wild West, Indian War, Cowboy,
Native American, and Western Expansion Displays.
