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.  

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.  

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.   

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 .......

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 ......

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 .......

ONE OF SEVEN KNOWN   ~     Super scarce Confederate Kenansville
Bridle Cutter Pike ...... This is a super scarce CS Pole Arm and in strong
condition with scary eye appeal.  Here is another REBEL RELIC that ought to
have some North Carolina Rebel excited ..... Complete with iron collar on the
end and solid pole.  
REBEL RELIC PRICE .............

SPREAD EAGLE   ~     Pretty non excavated Militia Panel Plate with tongue
and cross bar.  Nicely stamped and these buckles are excavated here in
Tennessee in both Yank and Reb camps.  These plates make great additions to
any display and

WORK OF ART   ~   Gorgeous Pre Civil War Eagle Belt Buckle with applied
German Silver wreath.  I love these buckles and this one still has it's keeper and
from the patina on the keeper was still on the original belt not to long ago.  
Ready for display and will look great beside your Reb or Yank sword.  

LOUISIANA CONFEDERATE MADE    ~      Thomas Griswold & Co.
New Orleans, Louisiana Confederate Naval Cutlass with firm marked blade.  
Beautiful brass cutlass guard and strong firm name on the blade .... scarce
pattern and ready for display or active duty.  

FIRE THE PUPS   ~      Confederate Short Artillery Sword with partial
scabbard and beautiful blade.   The casting has all the Southern traits we love
and the blade is remarkable.  The cross guard has all kinds of "letters"
scratched across it ..... If someone takes the time to figure it out could be cool.  

VIRGINIA REBEL   ~     Excavated Confederate two piece buckle known to
collectors as a Virginia pattern.  Just got this on consignment with history of
being dug near Brandy Station, Va.  This buckle has nice eye appeal and solid
example.  The wreath is a monster example ..... big, heavy, and thick.  The
tongue is very nice with smaller belt loops.  I know some have been dug with
different size belt loops ..... the history was dug near each other.  Maybe one of
you guys has the perfect match to each piece.  Looks good just the way it sits

THE FEW THE PROUD    ~     Confederate Veteran Badge for the best
of the best ..... Forrest Cavalry.  Beautiful badge in strong condition and killer
eye appeal and will look awesome anywhere you put it.  How about them
beautiful Flags at the top of this badge.  My favorite veteran item hands down
and if I could go back in time and ride with the General I would.  

TEXAS BLACKSMITH    ~     Fresh from the Lone Star State ..... Massive
Texas Clip Point Bowie with heavy 1/4 inch spine and 2" inches at widest point.  
The over all length is roughly 21" and blade close to 16" inches.  Solid Bowie
with great feel and no doubt FORGED TO FIELD DRESS YANKEES ..... has a
brass cross guard and big heavy brass rivets.  The blade is pitted but my guess
made from old material or re-purposed material.  Solid example and one you will
love when you wrap your hand around it.  
REBEL PRICED for unbeatable
value in collecting.

STRONG STUFF   ~    Confederate two-piece Buckle with "CS" on original
Civil War leather sword belt.  This scarce and desirable example has original
catalog were it was sold and a certificate of authenticity.  There is copies of
original Confederate documents that go along with this rig.  The buckle is very
nice with beautiful patina and one of the most desirable Confederate buckles.  
The original leather belt is federal issue and the document copies talk about the
using of federal captured supplies.  This is a center piece of any collection item
REBEL PRICED for unbeatable value.

OLD SOUTH    ~    Model 1842 Palmetto Armory Pistol with visible markings
and crisp action.  Scarce Southern Pistol with strong barrel marks and no doubt
this pistol was used to defend against the invasion.  Notice the "5" kill marks on
the side ..... Be very, very, quiet .... Rebel is hunting Yankees.  Gorgeous
Southern Treasure and from a better time and place.   

of South Carolina Cavalry Sword with ........ " COLUMBIA S.C. " stamped on the
ricasso.  Very scarce sword and if you collect South Carolina Artifacts a must
have for the collection.  Most of these swords are worn out but this example
survived in wonderful condition.  All original and ready for display .....  

Palmetto Armory long arms all in wonderful condition .....
 rifle sold.

"PICTURES 4-9 ..... Model 42 iron mounted musket with gorgeous Palmetto lock
fresh from the Georgia backwoods and first time on the market.  Literally attic
fresh and untouched time capsule long arm.  Crisp action with deep patina and
pictures show wonderful condition.    REBEL PRICE ......


"PICTURES 10-15 .....    Strong condition rifled and sighted Palmetto
Armory Musket with beautiful eye appeal with the brass bands. Crisp
action and mechanically sound with long range site and "SC" stamped
barrel and butt plate.  Investment grade musket and one many collections
are missing.     REBEL PRICE ........


WILSON COUNTY, TENNESSEE    ~     Beautiful fresh from the farm
British Tower three band musket with 1861 date and Crown VR lock plate.   This
example is like the one with engraved butt plate number in the new book.  This
musket has original finish on the barrel "maybe 80%" and some faded to silver
case color on the bands.  The action is crisp with correct barrel proofs and
original ram rod.   Gorgeous early Import long arm from the Volunteer State and

AUGUSTA, GEORGIA   ~     Scarce Southern Half Stock Rifle with E.H.
Rodgers marked lock plate and barrel.  Nice working action with patch box and
double set trigger.  E.H. Rogers was a well known Georgia gunsmith known for
sporting rifles like this example and secondary Confederate rifles.  This rifle is
.36 caliber and has the look of a Southern rifle used during the Civil War.  The
wrist has an old repair and one screw looks to be a replacement.   Rifles were
scarce during the Civil War in the South and .36 caliber would have been a
perfect caliber for the Southern Sharp Shooter .....  

GEORGIA .... ON MY MIND    ~      Gorgeous E. H. Rodgers half stock
rifle with working action and .45 caliber.  This is a wonderful Southern half stock
rifle that would have been prized during the American Civil War.  The Southern
States at the beginning of the War could not arm all the available fighting men
.... there is no way these rifles would have not saw Confederate service.  These
big bore rifles would have been perfect Rebel Sharpshooter Rifles.  Gorgeous
rifle that I believe originally bought from Damon Mills.  

PREPARE THE ARMY    ~    Confederate waist belt plate known to
collectors as the "EGG" ..... excavated example with wire belt hooks.  Solid
example with strong "CS" strike and has wonderful eye appeal.  I will ask the
seller if he knows where it was dug.  

MORE TEXAS STUFF   ~     Here is another REBEL RELIC fresh from the
Lone Star State ...... No doubt Johnny Reb. used this Bowie Bayonet as a
fighting bowie and camp knife.  The original bayonet locking hardware are
"M.I.A." not needed if you don't have the rifle.  The pommel shows honest usage
as a hammer as many Confederate used Bowie and Colt brass frames show
signs of "hammering" ..... The original date, inspector, and maker marks are
visible maker being partial.  These Dahlgreen Bayonets were designed to be
used on the Plymouth/Whitney Rifle and made by Ames ..... many surface that
show signs like this one of being used strictly as a Civil War Fighting Bowie.  

CARVED TEXAS   ~    Fresh from Texas ..... carved powder horn with name
and "63" date.  The horn has a man firing a long arm and a deer with other
carvings.  The name is nicely scratched carved as is the kneeling hunter.  The
horn has nice aged color and deep patina.  This one surfaced near Uvalde,
Texas and

REBEL PINFIRE    ~    Beautiful Import Pinfire Revolver with some original
finish and surfaced near Pineville, South Carolina.  The action is strong with all
the bells and whistles: lanyard ring, spur trigger, big bore, loading gate, and an
interesting "IC" mark.  Even has the "JOHNNY REB." used initials scratched
carved in the grips.  Very strong example and REBEL PRICED ..... if I learn more
about the "IC" mark I will add to the write up.  

BLAST THEM   ~     Double Barrel Shotgun with 23" inch barrel and
"LONDON" marked on the top of the barrel.  Completely unmarked other than
the "London" and shows honest usage.  This is one of my 25 Southern marked,
Southern used, surfaced in the South, CS oral history, bayonet lugged, and just
looks cool horde of shotguns.  I got back today most of the shotguns from the
book photographer and I am going to start selling some.  I do not know which
ones made the book and which ones they has similar of already.  The book
should be out in a year or so ..... I am still buying Shotgun Bayonets and if you
have one REBEL YELL at a Rebel.  This example is in very nice condition with
working action and original ram rod.  I love the brass hardware and engraving
.... gives it that REBEL LOOK and no doubt the sawed off barrels was not meant
for rabbit hunting.
