  1. Super rare, excavated, "CS" marked, Confederate manufactured, Artillery short sword.  This sword was excavated over 40 years ago and has been tastefully cleaned to an early Battlefield pick-up type look.  The blade remains full length with typical Confederate unstopped fuller.  The blade does have some areas of pitting due to excavation but remains 100% stable and shows no sign of further deterioration.  The crude cast-brass guard remains completely intact with "CS" cast into the cross guard on each side and a star cast into the pommel of each side.  As a relic hunter, this would unquestionably be an absolute dream find and a centerpiece to any excavated artifact collection.--$2,250.

  2. Extremely rare, College Hill Arsenal, Confederate Foot Officer's sword and original scabbard.  The sword has a nice, clean blade with faint traces of original Confederate engraving.  The cast brass Foot Officer's guard remains in perfect condition with a never-cleaned, rich, aged, bronze patina.  The leather grip remains in nice condition as well, but we feel it may have had the leather restored during the 1960's era.  The original scabbard remains with the sword with no breaks or weak spots and all brass mounts intact.  This would be a museum quality addition to any Civil War Confederate collection.--$7,950.

  3. Just in out of the local area, nice condition, Confederate manufactured, "Dog River", C.S. Cavalry saber and scabbard.  The saber blade is just beginning to darken with age.  The Confederate "Red Brass" guard remains perfectly intact as well as the wrap and single-strand iron wire on the grip.  The scabbard is a classic Confederate manufactured lap seam with brass mounts.  This saber without a doubt saw a lot of actual field service, because the top mount is worn almost halfway through.  This excellent Confederate manufactured saber would be a fine addition to any Civil War collection.--$4,250.

  4. Quite rare, blacksmith crafted, Confederate CARRIED Cavalry saber.  This saber was crafted using a "Dog River", unstopped fuller, Confederate manufactured blade with a pre-war, 1840,"Old Wristbreaker" guard and pommel cap.  The saber was carried in a Model 1840, iron-mounted wristbreaker scabbard.  A couple of sword collecting friends and myself were looking at the scabbard, and we noticed that the two iron ring mounts are soldered into place.  This is a trait sometimes associated with the Palmetto sabers out of Columbia, South Carolina.  It is a classic example of the extreme lengths that the South went to to arm their Cavalry.--$1,450.

  5. Extremely rare and in very nice condition, original, Confederate manufactured, "CS" Artillery short sword.  This style Confederate sword is believed by many to have been manufactured at the Selma Arsenal in Alabama.  This belief comes from a couple of unfinished examples having been found in the river at the location of the Arsenal.  This example has a nice blade with a smooth, dark, attic patina.  The patina is much like the patina on a gun barrel, and there is no deep pitting at all.  The tip is worn slightly rounded.  The massive cast, high copper alloy brass guard remains in excellent condition and has a rich, aged, bronze patina.  The guard has "CS" and a star cast into each side and is a quite crude mold as is always the case.  The sword remains tight and is a nice example of a very rare and sought after Confederate manufactured sword.--$3,250.SOLD

  6. Extremely rare and in very nice condition, Confederate manufactured, Boyle & Gamble - Richmond, VA, CS Foot Officer's sword and leather scabbard.  The blade remains clean with light visible, Confederate engraving in areas.  The distinct "Boyle & Gamble" blade fault remains clearly visible.  The original, leather grip remains completely intact as well as original wrap and single strand brass wire.  The Boyle & Gamble cast brass guard remains in beautiful condition with a rich, aged, bronze/brown patina and has never been cleaned.  The original, Confederate leather scabbard remains completely intact with the original, middle mount and drag intact.  The top, brass scabbard mount was missing, having been lost somewhere along the way.  This rare sword came out of a Northern estate where it was taken home as a war trophy.  I have been able to locate an original, Civil War top mount, and it displays beautifully.  Although original, the top mount is not a Boyle & Gamble product.  This is a much nicer example of this rare, Confederate manufactured Officer's sword than most you usually encounter.--$4,850.

  7. Excellent condition, hand blacksmith crafted, 14 1/2 inch overall with a 9 inch blade, Confederate sideknife.  The knife has a walnut grip with a brass ferrule and will make a fine addition to your Confederate weapons display.--$695.

  8. Extremely rare, non-excavated, 17 inch, Confederate fighting knife made from an extremely scarce Cook & Brother saber type bayonet.  This fighting knife is finely crafted and is referred to by exact serial number "159" on page 299 of the reference book, Confederate and Southern Agent Marked Shotguns by Russ Pritchard and John Ashworth.  There is thought to be less than ten Confederate side knives made from Cook & Brother saber bayonets in existence.  I am including a copy of the reference book along with this rare Confederate fighting knife.--$1,950.

  9. Beautiful condition, and extremely rare 15 inch overall Blacksmith crafted Confederate Bowie knife out of a North Georgia estate.  The blade on this knife is almost 2 inches wide, and appears to have been crafted from a Buggy Spring.  The knife has a walnut grip, and a brass ferrel and cap - both of which have a rich aged, never cleaned patina.  This will be a fine, museum worthy addition to someone's Confederate Blade collection.--$950.

  10. Very attractive, "Haiman" style, Confederate manufactured, Cavalry saber and scabbard.  The blade remains in nice condition, just beginning to turn brown/gray with age.  The high copper content brass guard remains in perfect condition with a rich, never cleaned, bronze patina.  The grip retains 80% - 90% original brown leather wrap and has fragments of the single strand iron wire.  The Confederate manufactured, brass mounted, lap seam scabbard remains in excellent condition showing extensive wear with the upper ring mount worn within 1/32 of an inch being worn all the way through.  This is a beautiful and historic Confederate artifact that has spent extensive time in the saddle.--$4,250.

  11. Extremely rare, 14 inch, hand blacksmith crafted, Confederate bowie knife in original, brown leather, hand tooled, Confederate sheath and belt cradle.  This is an exceptionally nice Confederate side knife/bowie purchased in 1989 out of the Nationally know Fred Slaton, Jr. collection of Nebo, KY.  The blade appears to have been made from a file and has a 4 1/2 inch walnut grip.  For many years, the Fred Slaton, Jr. collection was considered one of the best in the nation, and it is virtually unheard of to find an original Confederate bowie in both its original brown leather sheath and also the original brown leather, hand-crafted saddle for attaching it to the belt.  This is an unusually nice Confederate blade with a cool Fred Slaton pedigree.--$1,295.

  12. Excellent condition, excavated, solid silver, side knife scabbard tip.  This was recovered from the 1863 camp of the 16th Alabama Infantry.--$65.

  13. Extremely rare and excellent condition hand blacksmith crafted Confederate artillery Short Sword.  The sword appears to be made from a buggy spring or a large rasp.  It has an "S" shaped cross guard and has its original walnut grip.  This is out of a local estate and is completely uncleaned - untouched - and is 23 inches in overall length.  It is MANY times rarer than a Southern hand crafted bowie knife.  Here is your chance to own a Confederate Blade that MOST (even advanced) collections are missing.--$1,850.

  14. Nice condition, crude blacksmith crafted, 12 1/2" overall, Confederate sideknife.  The blade on the dagger is just over 7" in length and is crafted from a file, and it has a pewter throat and walnut grip.  The knife remains in its original leather sheath, and although very crude in construction, is quite sturdy built and remains very sharp yet today.  Maybe not ornate or fancy, but I guarantee this knife would yet today be lethal as ever.--$495.

  15. Very nice condition, original, non-excavated Confederate Pike Head with a small portion of the original wooden shaft.  It measures 17" overall with a 9" Pike blade.  There is a law that says, "Every Confederate blade collector must have an example of an original Confederate Pike."--$895.

  16. Fresh in the door, crude, blacksmith-made, 17" Confederate Bowie Knife.  The blade is blacksmith handcrafted from a large rasp and has many rasp teeth still remaining visible, both on the flats of the blade and along the upper edge.  The copper ferrule around the walnut handle and the brass washer around the riveted tang have a 150-year-old, never cleaned, rich bronze/brown aged patina.  This is a wicked hand-made Confederate weapon, and still remains sharp enough to easily cut you.  It is going to be a fine addition to someone's Confederate blade display.--$975..

  17. pike.jpg (44751 bytes)pikedesc.jpg (52672 bytes)Beautiful condition Confederate Pike complete with cuff and several inches of the original pole.  These original Confederate Pikes were sold by Bannerman during the 1950's era and he cut the poles into so that they were much easier and less expensive to ship.  Every Confederate collection should have an example of an original Confederate Pike.--$1,150.

Union

  1. Nice condition, Model 1860, Light Cavalry saber and scabbard.  This saber has a nice, clean blade and is marked, "Ames Mfg Co. - Chicopee - 1864 - US".  The cast brass, three-branch guard remains in perfect condition, and the saber's grip has all original leather wrap and twisted brass wire.  The soldier's initials are carved into the top portion of the brass guard with a pen knife.  The original scabbard remains in very nice condition and is without even a single dent.  This is overall a nicer Model 1860, Civil War Light Cavalry saber than most you see.--$895.

  2. Model 1860, Ames produced, Light Cavalry saber and scabbard.  The blade has a smooth, aging, gray/brown patina with markings of, "Ames Mfg Co - Chicopee Mass" on a scroll on one side, and on the other side, "US - A.D.K. (Alias D. King).  The date appears to be 1861, but the "1" has some scars, and I'm not 100% sure what it is.  The cast-brass, 3-branch guard remains in perfect condition, and the wrap and wire remain intact and in very nice condition as well.  The metal scabbard has a smooth, aged, gray/brown patina and shows clear evidence of lots of service with the top ring worn 1/4th of the way through the mount.  This is a Cavalry saber that could tell lots of combat stories.--$850.

  3. Very attractive, Model 1850, Federal Field & Staff Officer's sword and original leather scabbard.  The blade has darkened with age, but you can still clearly see the full engraving on both sides of the blade.  The blade is marked, "Iron Proof" on the top which indicates that it is a German contract and imported.  The cast-brass guard has the classic staff cut out "US" and a beautiful, rich, never cleaned, bronze/brown patina overall.  The grip retains full Ray Skin wrap and three strand wire.  The sword remains in its original leather scabbard, but the brass top mount and the brass drag have been lost somewhere over the last 150 years.  This Field and Staff Officer's sword shows clear evidence of actual use and will be a very nice addition to someone's Civil War collection.--$895.

  4. Very pretty Model 1850 Federal Field and Staff Officer's Sword and Scabbard.  The blade is clean and has beautiful deep, and sharp engraving on both sides from top to botton.  The blade is crisply marked "PDL" which means that this sword and scabbard was made in Germany for an American market, and contract.  The ornate cast brass guard remains in excellent condition with the "cut-out U.S." and a rich aged, never cleaned patina.  The original ray-skin covered grip, and wire remains intact as well.  The original brass mounted metal scabbard is still with the sword, and remains in very nice condition with a rich, aged patina.  The scabbard shows nice wear, and only a couple small dings from actual service.--$975.

  5. Very nice condition, Model 1860, Federal Staff Officer's sword with an ornately engraved blade.  The sword maker, "Schuyler & Hartley - New York" remains clearly visible in the engraving on the blade.  The grip retains original Ray skin and wire.  This is the pattern 1860 Staff Officer's sword with a diamond shaped cross section of the blade.  These were produced from the end of the Civil War through the 1870's era.  This example could be late Civil War, but is most likely just post-war.  The sword has a folding guard on one side and is missing the small ball that locks it in place.  This would be an excellent first sword for a young collector in that it is extremely ornate and is definitely from the 1800's era, but is yet quite inexpensive.--$175.SOLD

  6. Very sought after, Model 1840, "Ames" Old Wristbreaker Heavy Cavalry saber and scabbard.  The blade has a smooth, brown/gray patina just beginning to darken with age.  The blade is marked, "Ames Mfg Co - Chicopee Mass - 1856", and on the reverse, "US - ADK".  Ames Heavy Cavalry sabers were extensively used by both Union and Confederate Cavalry forces during the Civil War.  On this saber, the outside branch of the guard is bent forward indicating that at some point the horse went down on top of it.  This is an excellent artifact with clear proof that it "saw the elephant".--$975.

  7. 1870's era, Presentation Militia Officer's sword and scabbard.  The sword has a bone grip with an Eagle perched on a knight's helmet pommel cap.  The blade remains clean and bright with only a few areas beginning to darken with age.  The Presentation in Old English script is to E. M. Timbers.  We have not researched E. M. Timbers, and it is quite possible that he may have also served in the Civil War.  Although post Civil War Era, this is a beautiful sword and scabbard that displays first rate.--Only $150.

  8. Very pretty condition Model 1840 Federal N.C.O. (Non-Commissioned Officer) sword only without leather scabbard.  The blade remains clean and bright, and is dated "1863".  The date remains visible, but isn't stamped very deeply at all.  This would be a fantastic first Civil War sword for a young Civil War collector.--ONLY $295.

  9. Model 1840, Federal Light Artillery saber and scabbard.  This saber recently surfaced in a North Florida estate sale.  The blade remains clean and bright with markings of, "US ADK & 1863".  The markings remain visible but are light as if someone attempted to remove them.  Confederates carrying captured Federal swords and firearms quite often removed the Federal marks from their weapon.  The grip retains original wrap and wire, and the single "D" brass guard remains perfectly intact with a rich, aged, never cleaned, bronze patina.  The original scabbard has a smooth, chocolate brown, aged patina and does not have even a single dent.  This will be a very nice addition to any Civil War collection or museum.--$750.

  10. Absolutely beautiful condition, Model 1850, "Ames" Foot Officer's sword in original Ames marked leather scabbard.  The grip has original sharkskin and wire intact, and the brass guard has near 100% original gold gilt.  The blade remains in excellent condition with full engraving from top to bottom and is marked, "Ames Mfg. Co. - Chicopee Mass".  The scabbard is complete top to bottom with no breaks or weak spots, and all three mounts have lots of gold gilt remaining.  The top mount is nicely marked, "Ames Mfg. Co. - Chicopee Mass".  This sword is nice enough for any museum and would be a fine addition to any collection.--$1,850.

Co. - 1864 - US".  The brass guard remains in excellent condition with some aged, bronze/brown patina remaining in recessed areas.  The leather scabbard remains complete with the brass top mount intact, but the brass drag has dropped off somewhere along the way.  These are fairly easy to locate for replacement.--$495.

  12. Very attractive condition, Model 1840, Ames production, N.C.O. (Non-commissioned officer) sword and original leather scabbard.  The sword has blade markings of "Ames Mfg. Co. - U.S. - 1862".  The original brass guard remains in excellent condition just beginning to tone with age.  The leather scabbard is complete with brass throat and drag intact.  There is a little black tape around the scabbard where the brass drag meets helping to support the weak area where the brass drag attaches to the leather scabbard.  Both the sword and scabbard remain in overall nice condition.--$595.

  13. Nothing less than DROP DEAD BEAUTIFUL SUPER HIGH PRESENTATION GRADE "Tomes - Son, & Melvain - New York" Federal Officer's sword.  This high grade officer's sword has a solid silver engraved grip, and the cast Eagle in the guard has REAL ruby eyes.  The blade retains crisp engraving from top to bottom.  The scabbard is extremely high grade with a sharkskin covered body and intricately engraved brass mounts.  This beautiful presentation sword is out of an Ohio estate sale and will be a centerpiece to even a museum quality display.--$3,850.SOLD

  14. Quite rare, Model 1832, Ames regulation, artillery short sword manufactured in the first year of production.  This sword has a smooth, aged, never cleaned, gray/brown patina with blade markings of, "Ames - Springfield - 1832 - US".  The original leather scabbard remains complete and in very nice, solid condition.  This would be a quality addition to either a Civil War artillery display or a Civil War sword display.  It has been many years since I have had a first year production Ames short artillery sword.--$975.

  15. Model 1860, Light Cavalry saber (saber only without scabbard).  This saber has a clean blade, just beginning to turn brown/gray with age.  It is marked, "C. Roby, Chelmsford Mass - 1865 - US."  The grip is worn to polished wood, and the brass guard remains in nice condition, except for the outside branch which appears to have been broken off by an impact - likely a projectile.  This saber will almost certainly be a topic of conversation in any collection.--$550.

  16. Very pretty, Model 1860, Light Cavalry saber with sparkling bright blade from tip to tip and is marked, "US - 1864 - Mansfield & Lamb - Forestdale R.I."  This saber has original wrap and wire on the grip and also original metal scabbard that is without even one single dent.  All in all, this is a considerably nicer quality Model 1860 Light Cavalry saber than most that come along.--$895.

  22. Model 1840, Federal light artillery saber and scabbard.  The blade remains clean with just a few areas beginning to darken with age and is marked, "Ames Mfg. Co. - Chicopee Mass - US - 1865."  The blade was sharpened long ago but is aged to match the rest of the blade.  The D-shaped brass guard remains in very nice condition with an attractive, aged patina.  The leather grip was restored in the 1960's and displays as nicely as original today.  It is in the original metal scabbard which remains in good condition, but does have several small dings from field service.--$795.

  24. Relic condition, Model 1860, Federal Navy Cutlass.  The blade on this Cutlass is pitted and appears to have possibly been excavated once upon a time.  The massive, brass guard has a small portion broken away but remains 80% - 90% intact.  The grip was restored for display back in the 1970's era.  Not high grade by any means, but is still a real deal Civil War sword.--$250.

  26. Fresh out of the attic, Model 1850, Federal Foot Officer's sword (sword only without leather scabbard).  The blade is just beginning to darken in areas with age and retains original blade engraving almost full length on both sides of the blade.  The sword retains its original brass guard with a beautiful, near chocolate aged patina and original sharkskin on the grip.  This would be a fantastic first Civil War sword for a young or new Civil War collector.--$450.

  27. Model 1860, Federal Navy Cutlass.  The blade on this sword is actually an early excavated artifact.  The digger was able to locate an original 1860, Navy guard and brass pommel cap.  He reassembled the sword to display as it would have originally when issued.  This artifact could easily be a great centerpiece for an excavated relic collection.--$295.

Dingee - New York" on the belt reverse.  The belt remains strong, but clearly shows actual field service.  The buckle has a rich, aged, never cleaned patina.--$2,450.

  31. Beautiful condition, Model 1840, Ames Non-Commissioned Officer, Federal sword and scabbard.  The blade remains clean and bright with Ames on the scroll marking on one side and dated 1864 and marked "US" on the other.  The leather scabbard remains complete and in very nice condition tip to tip.--$695.

Springfield or contract rifled musket from the Civil War.--$295.

  8. "1861" date brass handle saber bayonet and scabbard (the leather scabbard is broken at two places) but is all there and displays nicely, and is correct for the Remington Zouave rifled musket.  The blade has an attractive - gently aging grey-brown patina, and is marked "1861 - Collins and Co. - Hartford, Conn."  The bayonet and scabbard displays very nicely just as it is, or the leather scabbard could definitely be restored.  Here is a GREAT buy on a saber bayonet that you very seldom see.--$325.
