The interior cardboard holder is loose which is how the box was made originally. The box could be repaired if so desired.

M11     Late Indian War or Early Spanish American War Company Photo

Description: Here is an excellent image of a company of soldiers that appears to be from Pennsylvania. You can kind of make out a keystone on one of the hat insignia. This is an excellent image and the detail is great. You can see a wide variety of accoutrements such as canteens, cups, web belts, swords, belt plates, a holster, and bayonets. These soldiers are all armed with the .45/70 Trapdoor Springfield muskets. They all appear to be wearing their packs with the tents rolled up on top and their haversacks on the side. The soldier in the front row on the left has a pistol inside of his model 1881 holster. He is also wearing the 1872/72 regulation belt with the US buckle fully visible. He also has the model 1878 canteen strapped to his side. A few of the soldiers have insignia on their hats. Both officer's standing in the front are holding swords and the letters "U.S.V." can clearly be seen on their collars. The majority of the men appear to be wearing the 1880's .45/70 Mills web belts that would have held 45 rounds of ammo with the captive wire ends. The actual image measures approximately 10" x 7" and is mounted on a thick paper stock board measuring 12" x 10". The board has a few bends and a little foxing but the image is in fine shape with plenty of color and detail. 

Measures: 12" x 10"

Price: $95.00 SOLD

Z628     Ohio State Seal Staff Button (Indian War Era

Description: Here is a very nice Ohio state seal staff officers button. This one has the sun coming over the mountains with the plow in front of the sheaf of wheat with the bundle of five arrows. This two piece button was made for Pettibone Manufacturing Company and was sold by them. They were a dealer in very fancy military goods and you have probably seen several belt rigs and swords made by them for officers. This would be the later style of button that is missing the boat on the front.

Measures: 22.62mm

Recovered: Non Dug Example

Z400    1874 Palmer Infantry Brace Yoke (Watervliet Arsenal Produced)

Description: Here is a pretty nice infantry piece from the 1870's. This is the Palmer Infantry Brace that attached to the Model 1874 belt. This was meant to place some of the weight of the equipment on the shoulders and back rather than the waist alone. The 1874 belt would have held two McKeever cartridge boxes and a bayonet. The two rear straps would have held the haversack and clothing bag. This example is very nice. The leather has some crazing but nothing like the ones I have seen. The leather is supple and the inspector's marking is clear. This would be a great addition to any Indian War collection and would look great holding the belt and cartridge boxes.

Markings: "Watervliet Arsenal" Inspected By: A.R. Smith

Measures: 36" in Length

Price: $195.00 Sale $133.00

Price: $15.00 Sale $10.00
