Z2642     "An Illustrated Guide to Civil War General Officers" by T.R. Lazorishak

Description: The American Civil War was a major event in American history. Thousands upon thousands of men (mostly young) died on both sides of the conflict. This is a brief, photographic journey, highlighting the commanders of the North & South. Some general officers (generals) died on the battlefield leading their men, gallantly, or, later, because of their wounds. Like the thousands of young men they commanded, many generals were caught up in a whirlwind of death & destruction. Their blood was shed just as easily as young privates & corporals caught up in battle. This book would make an excellent gift for that Civil War enthusiast! It's 38 pages with photos of 27 Officers with additional facts and information on each one!

Z2614     Model 1858 "Bullseye" Canteen by Hadden Porter & Booth of Phildelphia

Description: Decent canteen that saw use through two different time periods. This one has a few small service dents in both sides. This canteen is marked on the spout. It started off as a Civil War period canteen. It appears this one was pressed into service at a later date due to the copper ring around the spout which would date that era to the late Indian War period. There are a few small rust holes in one side and one is filled with solder. There is something that rattles around on the inside and it's probably the remains on the cork stopper.

Z2627     Patented 1859 J.E.B. Stuart Sword Hanger

Description:  Here is a nice complete sword hanger that was originally invented by J.E.B. Stuart in 1859. The longest strap measures 21" and the shorter strap measures 11" with the post war swivel snaps. The hanger is marked "FRANKFORD ARSENAL" with a script "US" on the main hook. The leather shows crazing but is still pliable and it's clearly marked with the US ORD. DEPT. SUB INSPECTOR A.D. LAIDLEY. This is definitely an odd variant that isn't as common as the regular 1859 style. This particular rig has a riveted sword hanger that measures over 3" which is quite uncommon for this style rig.

Description: Here is an early 20th Century Shako Helmet worn by the National Lancers of Boston, Massachusetts. This style of hat was was copied after the Polish czapka which was used by the Prussians, Polish, Austrians, etc. The top of the hat has a diamond shape leather cover with corner plates and bullion trim. Underneath the top is a red wool felt cover trimmed in bullion that attaches to a blue wool felt body. The base of this is trimmed with leather with a leather/wool interior. The front of the helmet is adorned with a large brass sunburst plate. The brim of this helmet is tarred leather with a brass rim that is detached in one area. This one still has the original bullion braid which is partially stitched around the back of the helmet. Both shako buttons are affixed and the brass chinstrap is intact. Please take notice of the little interior leather holder affixed to the top. At one time, this would have held a waterproof cover for the helmet. This is missing on this example. There is a hole in the top leather piece but all of the ones that I have found have this. Perhaps it was for ventilation but who knows. This helmet measures approximately 10 in width on the top and approximately 10" in height.

Description: Here is a scarce packet of ammunition. This paper packet contains six sleeves of seven cartridges for the Model 1865 Spencer Carbine.

Description: Here is a very nice original box that would have originally held 42 .56/50 Spencer Carbine cartridges. This box would hold six sleeves of seven cartridges.

The label reads, "Forty-Two / Patent Primed / Metallic Cartridges, / Patented September 7, 1852, and April 17, 1860, For Spencer Carbine. -- / Calibre 50-100. / Model 1865. / Manufactured by C.D. Leet, Springfield, Masss." The proprietorship of Charles D. Leet operated out of Springfield, Massachusetts from 1864-1866. This box contains a very nice and readable label. It is important to note, this box was manufactured so the tips of the sleeves would be accessible and stick out a little bit. These boxes are becoming increasingly difficult to find.

Z1199     Model 1859 Cavalry Curb Bit (Field Modified)

Description: Here is an interesting Cavalry curb bit. This is your typical M59 bit missing both of the bit bosses. This example has a very low port. The most interesting thing about this one is the field modification. One of the cheek pieces broke off and was modified with a broken part of another bit. A new cheek piece was hand forged and attached with two rose head nails. This piece is slightly out of square due to having a handmade piece attached but obviously served its purpose. This is a great example of field ingenuity! Based on the look of the metal this was an early pickup or barn find and it's been cleaned and coated.
