20 inch blacksmith made Confederate bowie
with leather scabbard. The bowie has a
14 inch long, and 1 1/2 inch wide blade with
a clip tip. The eaglehead pommel cap
is from an 1820 era militia sword. The
grip is bone, and has "the remnants" of the
original leather sheath, but the leather
sheath is about gone "to the great beyond".
This is a REALLY big knife actually
resembling a short artillery sword
broken Confederate side knife recovered from
the 1863 camp of the 8th Texas Cavalry.
The side knife was broken when found (which
is no doubt why it was discarded), but we
have for display fashioned the remainder of
the blade that is not there. An
excavated side knife is very rare to
recover, and even though this one is broken,
it displays very nicely.--$100.SOLD*
in out of the local area. Nice
condition Confederate local manufactured
"Dog River" style CS Cavalry saber.
This saber has an excellent "unstopped
fuller" Confederate made blade, and a high
copper alloy Confederate made guard and
pommel cap. The original Confederate
brass mounted scabbard was apparently
damaged, and the saber is now in an iron
mount import scabbard. This was
apparently quite common during the Civil War
as over the years I have had several brought
in this same way. Here is your chance
to own a nice honest CS MADE Cavalry saber
at roughly half price.--$2,650.SOLD*
nice condition, 19 inch, blacksmith crafted
"S-guard" Confederate bowie. This
knife is out of a Middle Tennessee estate
and was without question Confederate
carried. It has a 13 1/2 inch blade
that is blacksmith crafted from a buggy
spring. In addition, it has a 4 inch
S-guard and has a 5 1/2 inch turned walnut
grip. This is a super nice, HUGE
middle brass mount for an officer's sword.
This mount was recovered from a Confederate
camp many years ago and was cleaned up at
that time. The mount still has dug
patina on the inside and is gradually
patinaing back on the outside. The
mount shows wear around the ring mount from
actually being carried.--$65.SOLD*
condition, "Haiman" style, Confederate Dog
River Cavalry saber. This saber is the
saber only without scabbard and has a very
nice, never cleaned, unstopped fuller
Confederate blade and a high copper content
Confederate made guard and pommel cap.
The grip remains 100% intact and still has
the original single strand copper wire.
You couldn't ask for a prettier Confederate
made Cavalry saber.--$2,350.
manufacture "Dog River" style Confederate
saber that was brought home from the Civil
War, and made into a "tobacco cutting
knife". It was a very normal thing for
Confederates to bring military items home
from the war and adapt them to needs at home
or on the farm. This example has the
classic "unstopped fuller" Confederate
manufactured blade, and the "red brass"
Southern style Cavalry saber guard.
The pommel cap has a casting flaw which is
also a trait of Confederate made weapons.
This is a very classic example of how
Southerners adapted Civil War weapons to
civilian needs back at home.--$750.
pretty condition, blacksmith made, 10 inch
overall, Confederate carried dirk with
leather scabbard. The blade appears to
have been made from a file, and the pommel
cap is a brass buggy tack. The leather
scabbard is crudely hand-stitched and
remains completely intact. This little
knife is a classic example of Confederate
pretty condition, Model 1840, "Old
Wristbreaker", heavy Cavalry saber and
scabbard. The saber is a product of
Horstmann - Phila. This saber is out
of a local Southern estate and was almost
surely Confederate carried.
Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest
himself carried a similar saber at the
beginning of the war. The saber has a
bright, clean blade just beginning to darken
with age and is marked, "Horstmann - Phila."
The three branch brass guard remains in
excellent condition, and the saber retains
original wrap and wire on the grip. It
is in the original iron scabbard that has
soldered on ring mounts and soldered on
scabbard throat much like Confederate swords
out of Mobile, Alabama.--$950.SOLD*
rich aged patina on this Confederate carried
import Model 1860 cavalry saber. It is
out of a Florida estate, and remains just as
found. There are remnants of the heavy
single strand copper wire on the grip
typical of CS carried sabers. You can
sure enough hear Dixie when you hold this
old warrior !!!--$595.
attractive, Model 1840, "Old Wristbreaker"
Heavy Cavalry saber and scabbard. This
saber is out of a local family whose
ancestors served in the Confederate Cavalry.
It has a nice, clean, unmarked blade, and
the cast brass guard remains in very nice
condition. The grip on this saber was
restored about 50 years ago and remains in
very nice condition. The saber is in
its original iron scabbard that has a
pleasing brown/gray, aged patina.--$850.
rare, Confederate manufactured Foot
Officer's sword by E. J. Johnson of Macon,
Georgia. E. J. Johnson Confederate
manufactured swords were made with stopped
fullers and with highly polished and
lacquered wooden grips. The grips are
so beautifully polished that it takes close
examination to determine that the grip is
made of wood and not horn. This is an
unmarked example with only faint traces of
Confederate engraving. The high copper
alloy brass guard on this sword has a
beautiful, bronze, never-cleaned patina.
The original wire remains intact on the
grip, and the blade is just beginning to
turn brown/gray with age. I recently
purchased this sword out of an Arkansas
brought in by a local family, and is 100%
untouched. This is a very nice
hand-me-down Confederate local made "CS DOG
RIVER" Cavalry saber and scabbard. The
blade has a pretty gently greying aged
patina, and the brass guard has a thick -
never touched - brown patina. The grip
is down to the wood with only a few
fragments of the leather and single strands
of iron wire. The scabbard is a
classic lap seamed - brass mounted CS made
scabbard. This is a very nice,
straight out of the Southern estate and
untouched for the last 150 years,
Confederate manufactured, "Dog River" CS
Cavalry saber and scabbard.--$3,850.
condition, Confederate manufactured,
"D-Guard" Naval Cutlass. This style
Confederate Cutlass is believed to be the
product of Selma Arsenal - Alabama.
There have been two partially formed
examples recovered from the river at the
arsenal site leading us to believe this is a
product of that arsenal. The high
copper content Confederate manufactured
brass guard remains completely intact but
does have a couple small cracks. The
blade on this Cutlass has a smooth,
chocolate patina with two or three old
blade-to-blade nicks. Selma, Alabama,
manufactured Confederate artifacts rate as
some of the rarest and most sought after of
rare and in very nice condition, Confederate
manufacture, short Artillery sword.
This style unmarked Confederate sword is a
product of "E. J. Johnston & Company" of
Macon, Georgia. This company provided
the Confederacy with many different types
and models of edged weapons. A few of
the weapons of this type are actually maker
marked, but far and away most are unmarked.
This example has a nice, clean blade, gently
darkening with age, and the classic
concentric ring cast brass guard that has a
rich, aged never cleaned patina. This
is a nicer example than what most museums
is one of the most popular of the
Confederate sword makers during the Civil
War Era. It is a "Thomas Griswold -
New Orleans" Confederate manufactured and
"MARKED" Foot Officer's sword. This was
purchased many years ago out of a New
Orleans estate sale. The blade is
clean, just beginning to darken with age and
has Thomas Griswold that you can see from
ten feet away. The sword has original
wrap and wire and an excellent cast brass,
Confederate Thomas Griswold guard. It
has never been cleaned and has a rich,
bronzed patina. This Confederate
Officer's sword is literally nice enough for
rare, Leech & Rigdon, Memphis, Tennessee,
Confederate manufactured Foot Officer's
sword. This is the Confederate sword
along with a partial leather scabbard.
The blade remains clean, just beginning to
darken with age. It has the typical
Confederate unstopped fuller. The cast
brass guard is 100% Memphis Novelty Works
all the way with the distinctive Leech &
Rigdon Officer's sword motif on both top and
bottom. This is a super rare
Confederate Officer's sword, and in nearly
50 years, I could count the number of these
that I have had on my two hands.
Better not let this one get away, because it
could be many years before you see another
COOL GETTYSBURG ARTIFACT. This is an
1840 era Militia Officer's sword that was
being Confederate carried and was picked up
at the Peach Orchard following the Battle of
Gettysburg. The sword has in ancient
gold paint on the blade "Rebel - Peach
Orchard" and was on display in a GAR Hall
for many years. For the last 50+
years, it has been in the collection of my
long time friend, Clarence Byrd. This
artifact is absolutely untouched just like
you want them to be left.--$1,850.SOLD
rare, Boyle - Gamble, and McAfee - Richmond,
Virginia, MARKED, Confederate Foot Officer's
sword and scabbard. This Confederate
Officer's sword and scabbard was brought
home as a war trophy by an Illinois soldier
from the Civil War. This rare
Confederate sword has original wrap - a
clean blade - and a deep, never cleaned,
bronze/brown, aged patina on the
maker-marked guard. The sword has its
original Confederate manufactured scabbard
with both ring mounts, but the drag has
dropped off somewhere over the years.
It is an extremely rare thing to find a
maker-marked Confederate sword "in-the-wild"
these days. Here is your chance to
have one of the more sought after
Confederate Virginia Officer's sword in
condition and one of the most sought after
of all the Ames light cavalry sabers.
This saber has a bright clean blade and is
marked, "Ames Mfg Co - US - 1859".
Ames Cavalry sabers with dates this early
were often Confederate carried. The
brass guard remains completely intact with a
rich, aged patina. The saber retains
complete original wrap and wire on the grip.
The metal scabbard has an aged, dark brown
patina and remains in excellent
crafted, 13 inch, Confederate bone handle
side knife, blacksmith made from an 1840 era
Knight's Head Militia Officer's sword.
This knife has an 8 inch blade that remains
razor sharp yet today. This is out of
our local area and was no doubt carried by a
local Middle Tennessee Confederate.
This would be an excellent addition to any
rare, excavated, COMPLETE, first model, cast
brass guard for a Kenansville/Confederate
States Armory Cavalry saber. This
guard was recovered about 40 years ago from
a Confederate Cavalry camp in North Carolina
not very far from the Kenansville factory
rare to recover, excavated, top brass throat
plate to a Confederate Dog River saber
scabbard. It remains in excellent
condition and could no doubt be cleaned up
to go back on a Confederate scabbard.
I am certain that there are tons of
collectors out there with Dog River sabers
and scabbards missing this piece.--$65.SOLD*
in out of the local area and highly likely
Confederate carried, Model 1840, Heavy
Cavalry saber and scabbard, AKA "Old
Wristbreaker". This saber remains in
excellent condition with a nice, clean blade
marked, "Horstmann - Phila". The grip
is 100% original and remains in perfect
condition. The metal scabbard remains
in excellent condition as well and has been
with the saber since the Civil War Era but
may be in actuality a James Conning -
Mobile, Alabama, scabbard in that the throat
and mounts are leaded into place. This
is a very nice saber straight out of a Deep
pretty, "CS MARKED", Confederate Short
Artillery sword. This sword has a very
nice blade, gently darkening with age.
The high copper content "CS Marked" guard
has a rich, never cleaned, bronze/brown,
aged patina. This is a very rare
Confederate sword and is nice enough to be
in any museum across the country. The
cast brass guard has the "Star" and the "CS"
cast into each side of the guard. It
is believed by many collectors that this
sword may likely be a product of the
Confederate Selma Arsenal in Southern
Alabama. There have been a couple
partially molded examples recovered in the
river at the arsenal site. This will
be an excellent addition to any Civil War
collection, even to museum
rare to recover, massive 14 inch Confederate
bowie knife blade recovered from the camp of
the 8th Texas Cavalry. This bowie
knife was made from a huge rasp, and you can
still see remnants of some of the rasp teeth
in areas. Apparently the Texas guys
were much like Crocodile Dundee, "No, this
is a knife." This will be a fine
addition to any excavated Confederate
in out of a local Middle Tennessee estate,
Model 1860 import, light cavalry saber and
scabbard. The blade remains bright and
clean with just a couple of small blade
nicks from service. The 3-branch brass
guard has a rich, aged, bronze patina, and
the grip has original wrap and wire.
The iron scabbard remains in very nice
condition with a smooth, never cleaned,
chocolate brown patina. From where
this saber came from, it was almost
certainly Confederate carried.--$750.SOLD
nice condition, Model 1840, "Old
Wristbreaker", Heavy Cavalry saber and
scabbard. Model 1840 sabers were
extensively carried by both Union and
Confederate Cavalry, especially early in the
Civil War. Union Cavalry, for the most
part, changed over to Model 1860 Light
Cavalry sabers, but Confederate Cavalry
continued to carry the Model 1840 "Old
Wristbreaker" throughout the Civil War.
Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest
carried one early in the war, and many in
his command carried Model 1840 sabers
throughout the Civil War. This
particular saber has an unusual 3-branch
"iron" guard rather than the more typical
brass guard. These are generally an
import procured before the Civil War by
"Tiffany" of New York. This example
has a nice, clean, unmarked blade just
beginning to darken with age. The grip
remains in nice condition as does the
3-branch iron guard and pommel cap.
This saber is out of a Central Arkansas
estate and was very likely Confederate
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
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.SOLD
ornate non-regulation Model 1850 Federal Field and Staff Officer's sword
and scabbard. The blade on this sword is absolutely "sparkling" with
100% full visible engraving AND 100 %
original blade engraving "frosting" as well
!!. The guard is iron and quite ornate with the "cut-out
eagle and U.S. and E. Pluribus Unum". The original sharkskin
100% perfectly intact and is the nicest that I
have seen in ages. The scabbard has a
smooth grey-brown patina, and fits
perfectly. This sword is no less than
1860 Federal Navy Cutlass. The large
brass guard remains in nice condition, and
the blade has a pleasing, gray/brown, aged
patina. The grip is down to wood,
which they often are. The markings on
the blade are literally almost worn off, but
under the glass, I can still see "186?".
Just a good, honest Naval Cutlass from the
1860 Light Cavalry saber that somehow has
the three-branch guard missing and has never
been taken apart. The blade has a
smooth, chocolate patina and is marked,
"Mansfield & Lamb - US - 1864". There
has to be quite a story as to how the brass
guard came to be missing from this saber.
The grip remains completely intact with full
original wrap and wire. This is a
great relic for a very reasonable
clean, Model 1850, Foot Officer's sword
(without scabbard) out of a Central Ohio
estate. The blade remains clean with
clearly visible engraving from top to
bottom. The brass guard remains in
very nice condition with rich, aged patina
and gold gilt showing through in areas.
The grip has original sharkskin and some of
the original wire. The sword shows
honest wear and no doubt saw action.--$595.
pretty condition, Model 1840, NCO
(Non-commissioned Officer) sword and
scabbard. The sword blade remains
bright and clean with a crisp "Ames Mfg. Co.
- 1864 - ADK - US" blade marking. The
cast brass guard remains in perfect
condition. The sword remains in its
original leather scabbard, and the scabbard
is complete but does have an old repair to a
weak area a few inches above the brass drag.
This Model 1840 NCO sword and scabbard is
definitely nicer than most that you
pretty condition, Model 1840, Federal Light
Artillery saber and scabbard. The
saber itself has a bright, clean blade,
marked, "Ames - Chicopee Mass - 1854".
The saber retains original wrap and wire on
the grip, and the classic cast "D-guard" has
a rich, never cleaned, aged patina. I
believe the saber was likely at one time on
display in a "GAR" post, as the scabbard is
lightly nickel plated, which many GAR posts
did so that very little cleaning and
maintenance was required. If a person
so desires, the nickel plating can be
removed. This is a nice quality
Federal Artillery saber.--$895.
brought in - A very pretty condition, Model
1860, Federal Light Cavalry saber and
scabbard. This saber has a nice clean
blade marked "1864 - US - C. ROBY".
The saber has original wrap and wire, and
the cast brass guard has a nice uncleaned,
aged patina. The scabbard has an
uncleaned brown/black patina with only a
couple minor service dings. The saber
has the type aged look we all really
attractive, Model 1860, Light Cavalry saber
and scabbard. The blade has a gently
aging, gray/brown patina with blade markings
of, "Ames Mfg - Chicopee - 1863 - US - ADK"
(Alias King). The three-branch brass
guard remains in very nice condition with
original wrap and wire on the grip.
The iron scabbard has a deep, aged,
chocolate brown patina with only one dent
near the lower mount. This saber shows
wear evidence indicating quite a lot of
nice condition, Model 1860, Ames produced
Light Cavalry saber and scabbard. This
saber was brought home from the Civil War as
a souvenir by a local Confederate Infantry
soldier. The saber has a clean blade
just beginning to darken with age. The
blade is marked, "Ames Mfg. Co. - US -
1865". The grip remains in excellent
condition with original wire intact.
The scabbard is in nice condition and has
been with the saber since the Civil War Era,
but is actually for an 1840 Heavy Cavalry
saber. This would be a beautiful saber
to go over someone's mantle.--$695.
pretty condition, 1820 - 1840 era, "P-Guard"
Militia Officer's saber. This saber is
out of a Texas estate and is believed to
have been carried by a Texas Cavalryman.
The grip on the saber is intricately carved
bone, and the blade is nicely engraved with
gilting and bluing. It is quite a
rarity to encounter a saber of this type
with the original leather scabbard remaining
completely intact with both mounts and
original brass drag. It is very likely
that this saber was carried by a Texas
Cavalryman and will be a museum quality
addition to someone's Civil War
beautiful, presentation grade, 1870's era,
Fraternal sword in original ornate sheath.
The sword itself has an intricately engraved
blade presented to "Benno Rohnert".
The sword has an inscribed ivory grip and an
incredibly ornate, cast brass, scabbard
throat and mount. This is a Masonic
Knights of Templar with IN HOC SIGNO VINCES
around a "blood red passion cross". It
is my understanding that these ultra ornate
Templar swords were reserved for the Masonic
Commandery. It is without a doubt the
most ornate Fraternal sword that has come
through this shop in many years.--$395.SOLD
condition, post Civil War Era, Federal Navy
Officer's sword of the pattern of 1851.
The sword has a beautiful blade with 100%
crisp, clear engraving and a presentation to
"Tom Graham". The sharkskin grip
remains in very nice condition, and the
scabbard remains in nice condition as well.
We are unsure as to the exact era that this
sword falls, but we are confident that it is
post Civil War Era. This beautiful
presentation sword will be a fun research
project for someone.--$495.SOLD
1860, Federal Naval Cutlass with leather
scabbard. The Cutlass has an aging,
brown/gray patina on the blade and is dated
1862. The brass guard remains in nice
condition, and the original leather scabbard
remains with the sword but is missing the
brass button for seating into the leather
saddle. The scabbard is very solid and
sturdy but is missing the last couple of
inches. This would be a quality
addition to someone's Civil War
1840, "Ames" heavy Cavalry saber (Old
Wristbreaker) found in a Civil War Era
outbuilding located near Charleston, South
Carolina. The saber is complete but
has a very dark patina overall with some
pitting to the scabbard due to exposure to
the elements for the last 150 years.
When found, the grip was decayed down to
wood and has had the leather nicely restored
for better display. The blade is
marked, "Ames Mfg Co - Chicopee Mass - 1855
- US - JB". This is a quite rare saber
that could be displayed equally well with an
excavated or non-excavated
attractive, Model 1850, Federal Foot
Officer's sword and original, metal
scabbard. The sword has crisp,
visible, Union engraving on the blade top to
bottom. The sword is a "Solingen"
marked import manufactured under Federal
contract. The grip has original
sharkskin and original wire. The metal
scabbard has a smooth, brown, aged patina
and a couple of normal small service dings.
The brass drag has a rich, dark, never
cleaned patina and is mounted "upside-down"
to the way it usually is. If you like
a nice, honest sword that clearly saw
service and has not been cleaned, you will
enjoy this one.--$1,150.SOLD
1850, Federal Field & Staff Officer's sword
in original, brass mounted metal scabbard.
The blade on this officer's sword was at
some point in time plated and has residue of
old plating remaining today. The cast
brass guard remains in nice condition with a
good bit of original gold gilt still
visible. The grip remains very nice
with original shark skin wrap and wire.
The metal scabbard remains in nice condition
as well and also has residue of old plating.
Over the years, I have discovered that a
good many Civil War guns and swords that
were plated were on display in old GAR
meeting halls and UCV meeting halls.
Their thinking apparently was, if we plate
them, we won't have to keep cleaning them.
This is a very attractive sword and scabbard
with the cut-out "US" in the guard.--$950.
pretty untouched Model 1860 AMES Light
Cavalry saber and scabbard. This saber
was purchased many years ago from a
Pennsylvania estate sale not too many miles
from Gettysburg. The blade has a
smooth grey-brown patina gently darkening

Mfg. Co. - Chicopee, Mass. - 1863 - U.S.".
The brass guard remains in very nice
condition, and the saber has nice original

chocolate patina. This saber is felt
by many to be the most representative saber
of the American Civil War.--$950.SOLD

remains in excellent condition with some
aged, bronze/brown patina remaining in
recessed areas. The leather scabbard

intact, but the brass drag has dropped off
somewhere along the way. These are
fairly easy to locate for

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
full length, very soft, tanned deer skin
cover for an 1840 - 1850 era, ornate Militia
Officer's sword. These are quite
delicate and fragile and rarely found still
full length. This one remains full
length (38 inches) and has an early gilted
Eagle button closure device.--$195.
1860, Federal Navy Cutlass. The blade
on this sword is actually an early excavated
artifact. The digger was able to

original sharkskin weap and wire. The
blade is bright with sparkling bright
engraving and is marked "Philadelphia" and
would have been also marked "Horstmann" -

removed. The leather scabbard is
exceptionally nice with "coiled rope" ring
mounts and a Dolphin drag. What a
fantastic gift this would be for that
Naval person in your family.--$1,250.

This style saber pattern bayonet was made for the Model 1861
Plymouth Navy rifle. This example has a bright, clean blade
marked, "Collins & Co- Hartford, Conn." The cast brass guard
remains in perfect condition with the attaching spring intact and
strong. The saber bayonet remains in its original leather
scabbard, and we have added a reproduction leather carrying frog
for display. If you have a Model 1861 Plymouth Navy rifle,
this would make a fantastic compliment to complete your musket
attractive, non-excavated, .58 cal., triangular socket bayonet
correct for Model 1855 or Model 1861 or 1863 Springfield or
contract 3-band rifled muskets. This would be an excellent
compliment to enhance your Civil War musket display. The
bayonet remains clean, just beginning to darken in some
rare to find, non-excavated, .69 cal., triangular bayonet for a
Model 1842 Springfield or Harpers Ferry rifled musket. The
bayonet is full length and just beginning to gray with age.
The lock ring remains intact, and the US stamping is deep and
clear. This will be a perfect compliment for your Model 1842

over 20 years ago along the Confederate line on private property
here at the Battle of Stones River.--$98.SOLD
45 - 70 trapdoor bayonet (Indian Wars era) picked-up near Fort
Leavenworth, Kansas. This fort has been active for almost
200 years with lots of activity during the Indian War's Era.
The bayonet and scabbard are rusty from many years exposure, but
everything remains intact and stable.--$125.
broken, .577 cal., Enfield triangular socket bayonet. These
two bayonet portions were recovered on private property along the
Confederate battle line here at the Battle of Stones River.

bayonet being broken. With these two pieces, only the very
tip of the bayonet is not present.--$65.
.58 cal., Springfield, triangular socket bayonet. This
bayonet was found in an old home here in Murfreesboro and was
likely left over from the Battle of Stones River. The
bayonet has some areas still remaining bright, and other areas
have turned a light brown with age. If you have a .58
caliber Springfield or contract musket, this would be a very nice
clean, .69 cal., friction fit, triangular socket bayonet often
seen on Remington conversions of the Model 1816 muskets.
This style bayonet will also fit most Springfield and Harpers
Ferry Model 1816 muskets.--$225.
cal., Enfield, triangular socket bayonet. This bayonet has
been hanging in a barn here near Stones River and is quite likely
a pick-up from the battlefield. It has a smooth, chocolate,
clean, Remington Zouave saber bayonet in original leather
scabbard. The bayonet
itself has a sparkling bright blade and a perfect condition, cast
brass guard. The
leather scabbard is complete but does have some tape supporting a
weak spot just above the drag.
Other than that one area, the scabbard is complete and
nice.--$450. complete with scabbard.
nice condition, non-excavated, .69 cal., triangular socket bayonet
correct for a "Towers" musket. This was brought in out of a
local estate and was almost certainly Confederate carried.--$195.SOLD*
unusual, excavated, .69 cal., Model 1842, triangular socket
bayonet. This was recovered over 30 years ago on private
property along the Confederate battle line here at Stones River.
Interestingly, the socket is broken just behind the lock ring.
I can't imagine how you would accomplish breaking the bayonet at
cal., triangular, socket bayonet correct to fit the Model 1855,
all Springfield and contract rifled muskets Model 1861, and Model
1863 type 1 & 2 muskets. The bayonet was an early
battlefield pick-up here at Stones River and has a smooth,
chocolate brown patina overall.--$150.
condition excavated .58 cal. Springfield trianglar socket bayonet.
This bayonet was recovered over 40 years ago on private property
here at Stones River. It is rusty, of course, but has been
nicely cleaned, and is ready for display. It is complete to
the very tip, and even has the lock ring still intact. These
days - it is a real rarity to recover one of these, and they are
almost never in this nice condition.--$150.
nice condition saber bayonet in its original leather sheath,
correct for the Remington Zouave rifle. The blade remains
sparkling bright without even one hint of rust or darkening.
The heavy cast brass guard remains perfect as well and has a nice,
untouched, bronze patina. The original leather scabbard is
complete and in nice condition, but the stitched seam has opened
up in areas. This would be an excellent compliment to
display with your Remington Zouave rifle.--$395.
nice condition, .69 cal., triangular socket bayonet originally
issued with .69 cal., Model 1816 muskets that were converted to
percussion using the Maynard priming system by Remington.
The bayonet will also fit .69 cal., Model 1842 muskets, and I have
gotten in directly from families, Model 1842 hand-me-down muskets
with this bayonet on the musket.--$195.
battlefield pick-up look, .577 cal., Enfield, rifled musket,
triangular socket bayonet. The bayonet is missing the lock

or contract 3-band rifled muskets. The metal is smooth, just
beginning to darken with age. It was apparently a private
purchase, because there are no US marks.--$195.
nice condition, .54 cal., non-excavated, 4-side, "Austrian" socket bayonet.
These were extensively Southern used, and all that I have
recovered over the years were from Confederate occupied
