1837 AMES PEACE FLASK - FIRST YEAR OF PRODUCTION
- Can't get any earlier on these and this one has been through a
lot based on the amount of wear. Flask had been cleaned long
ago but now has a mellow patina. As mentioned before, quite a
bit of wear on all the high relief areas, only one or two very small
dents (negligable) and showing a small amount of solder on the
bottom seam (perhaps an old repair). Inspectors stamp 'WS' on 1
side next to eagle's head and 'N.P. Ames' "1837' on the top. Has
original suspension rings and charger spring works. Early
enough for Mexican War use.
ALL FIREARMS ARE ANTIQUES AND AS SUCH ARE SOLD ONLY AS
COLLECTORS ITEMS - THEY ARE NOT TO BE FIRED

CONFEDERATE COOK & BROTHER NAVAL
CUTLASS
- Good honest marked Confederate naval
cutlass. Marked with the Cook & Brother stamp on the
inside of the guard, crude cast guard & grip without the
dowels through the grip & blade tang (unlike the US
M-1841 cutlass which had these, the CS version only had
the peened tang at the pommel). The quillion has been
broken and repaired as can be seen in photos. Rear of
guard is marked with the number '12'. Blade shows age
and some light pitting.
$ 7250.

IMPORT EAGLE PISTOL POWDER FLASK - (R-777 in Riling's
Powder Flask Book). Rarely seen these eagle flasks were produced in
Birmingham and made of light weight white metal (zinc ?) to keep
costs down for competitive sales in the US. Due to the cheap
construction few have survived in good condition and as Riling put it
back in the 1950's "in fine condition have now become good collector
property".  This flask shows some wear on high relief areas such as
the eagle's shield. There are no breaks in the seam and the charger
lever functions.

FULL PACK OF 10 ENFIELD CARTRIDGES - Very
nice full pack of Enfield cartridges. Paper wrap correctly
marked and dated 1860. Inside are 10 complete Enfield
cartridges in very good condition and still retains the
paper that separates the cartridges. One cartridge is
leaking black powder granuals but not much. Cartridges
alone are worth the price.

M-1816 SIMEON NORTH U.S. SINGLE SHOT
FLINTLOCK PISTOL
- Early type with the larger
stamping on the lockplate - Undated but was produced
probably 1817-1818. .54 Cal. manufactured in
Middletown, Conn. These are not encountered often.
Looks to be original flint, stock is very nice with only
two small spots on left side that may have a filler but
done and matched well. Good cartouche and also has a
small '3' stamped near butt on right side. Very good
and clear stamping on lockplate, may be two
replacement screws inside lock as the ends that show
behind the hammer are not properlt rounded - minor
issue. Replacement ramrod. You would be hard pressed
to find a nicer one. Came from an old collection.

HORSTMANN & SONS NON-REGULATION
INFANTRY OFFICER'S SWORD WITH POSSIBLE
CONFEDERATE USAGE
- Good honest and right out
of an estate in Virginia, this 30" blade sword with
leather scabbard has obviously not been touched in
ages before the blade being lightly cleaned. Barely able
to see the "Horstmann & Sons" and "Philadelphia"
on opposite ricassos. Blade has much bright to dark
blotchy finish and is lightly etched with trophy and
floral patterns but I can not make out any 'US'. Along
with coming out of Virginia there is a crude sword
hanger clip on one of the suspension rings the type of
which have been found on Leech & Rigdon scabbards.
Scabbard is very sound and strong.
BOOT KNIFE WITH PISTOL GRIP - Double edged, 6
1/4" spear point blade (10" overall length). Has what
looks to be very aged walnut grip and sheath with tin
(deep patina) for all metal hardware.The blade, while
shiney does have noticible flaws as can be seen in
photos.

RARE MODEL 1855 SPRINGFIELD PISTOL
CARBINE WITH ATTACHABLE STOCK
-  With
only slightly more than 4,000 made, this is one of
the most sought after guns of the Civil War era.
Both Barrel and lockplate dated 1855, correct 400
yard leaf sight, markings good and legible (eagle
on the Maynard Tape Primer door a bit light),
cartouche is only visible by the rectangle - no
initials left, bench mark on pistol is '8' and on
stock is '6' (rarely are these found together
matching). Barrel rifling still good. Indentations
on grip from attachable shock showing use.
Typical dings and wear. Very light pitting on
areas of the lockplate. Many were initially issued
to the 1st and 2nd U.S. Cavalry in the west.

M-1860 COLT 4-SCREW ARMY REVOLVER - EARLY SERIAL
- Very nice looking Colt Army revolver with a 20,220 serial
number - all matching including the wedge. Very good markings
including the cylinder scene which is at least 90% visible -
perhaps more, Colt - New York Address on barrel. There is an
extremely light cartouche on the left grip but one must hold the
gun on an angle in the right light to spot it. Precious little finish
is on the gun so I will call it none. Mechanically it is tight and
very good, rifling is good. One of the best Colt Armys I've had in
a while.
