  1. Just 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.

  2. Excellent 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 the Confederacy.--$3,450.SOLD

  3. Extremely 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 have.--$1,895.

  4. This 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 any museum.--$5,850.

  5. Extremely 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 one.--$5,950.SOLD

  6. SUPER 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

  7. Super 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 existence.--$7,950.SOLD

  8. Excellent 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 condition.--$975.SOLD

  9. Beautifully 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 Confederate display.--$795.

  10. Extremely 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 site.--$450.

  11. Extremely 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

  12. Just 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 South estate.--$895.SOLD

  13. Very attractive, Model 1840, Ames Artillery saber.  This saber is out of an Arkansas estate and was almost certainly Confederate carried in that all the US maker markings have been long ago filed away.  This saber was in an Arkansas museum for over 30 years.  We believe that at one time, the saber was in an old UCV Hall where it was lightly nickel plated as they often did in hopes of eliminating the need for cleaning.  Confederate carried, captured Federal guns and swords was quite common.  This would be a very nice addition to any Civil War display.--$750.

  14. Really 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 level.--$3,250.SOLD

  15. Absolutely massive "Bad To The Bone" Confederate blacksmith hand crafted bowie out of a North Carolina estate many years ago.  This wicked weapon measures a full 19 inches overall with a spear shaped blade measuring just over 12 inches, and this thing is still lethal sharp.  The knife has an attractive hand crafted brass guard.  When you hold this guy in your hand - the words of "Crocodile Dundee" comes to mind -- "NO - This Is A Knife" !!--$850.

  16. Extremely 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 weapons display.--$750.

  17. Just 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

  18. Very 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 carried.(CW)--$795.SOLD

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. 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.SOLD

Union

  1. Nice, 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.

  2. Very 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 see.--$695.

  3. Very 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.

  4. Just 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 like.--$895.

  5. Very nice condition, Model 1860, Light Cavalry saber and scabbard.  This saber has a nice, clean blade with no pitting at all and is marked, "US - 1864 - Mansfield & Lamb".  It has 100% intact original wrap and wire on the grip, and the cast brass guard remains in perfect condition.  The saber is out of a Franklin, Tennessee, estate and is quite likely to be left from the November 30, 1864, Battle of Franklin, Tennessee.  This is a museum quality Federal Cavalry saber.--$950.SOLD

  6. Model 1850, import Foot Officer's sword found hanging in a tobacco barn near Bentonville, North Carolina.  This is of course where the final surrender of the Army of Tennessee occurred.  The sword remains totally uncleaned just as found and could have equally as likely been carried by Union or Confederate.  This is a relic that could fit equally as well into an excavated or non-excavated Civil War relic collection.--$595.SOLD*

  7. Very 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 use.--$895.

  8. Very attractive, Model 1832, Federal Short Artillery sword.  This is a massive, Roman style sword with blade markings of, "US - 1843".  The blade has a gently aging, gray/brown patina, and the guard is massive cast brass fish scale.  The scabbard is a 1960's era reproduction and was carried in many Living History programs.  Every collection should have one of these massive Short Artillery swords.--$650.

  9. Very nice condition Model 1860 Federal light cavalry saber and scabbard.  This saber has a nice clean blade, and is marked "1864 - C. ROBY - W. Chelmsford, MASS."  It was in a central Ohio G.A.R. Hall for many years, and that is likely where the scabbard got some Nickel plating.  The idea was to plate the scabbard, and you wouldn't have to clean it anymore.  The saber remains in nice condition with excellent original wrap and wire on the grip.--$750.

  10. Very 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.

  11. Very 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 collection.--$1,150.

  12. Absolutely 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.

  13. Beautiful 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.

  14. Model 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 display.--$695.SOLD

  15. Model 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 collection.--$850.

  16. Very 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.

  17. Model 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.

  18. Very 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 with age.  The blade is marked "Ames Mfg. Co. - Chicopee, Mass. - 1863 - U.S.".  The brass guard remains in very nice condition, and the saber has nice original wrap and wire on the grip.  The original metal scabbard remains in very nice condition with a smooth - never cleaned - chocolate patina.  This saber is felt by many to be the most representative saber of the American Civil War.--$950.SOLD

  19. Fresh out of a Florida estate sale, Federal Model 1840, N.C.O. (Non-commissioned Officer) sword in original scabbard.  The sword has a bright, clean blade marked, "Ames Mfg. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. Very nice condition, Model 1840, Ames manufactured, non-commissioned officer (NCO) sword in original leather scabbard.  The blade remains bright and clean and is marked, "US - 1864 - Ames Mfg Co - Chicopee Mass".  The leather scabbard remains complete and sound with no repairs or weak spots.  This would be a quality addition to any Civil War collection.--$695.Very nice condition, Model 1840, Ames manufactured, non-commissioned officer (NCO) sword in original leather scabbard.  The blade remains bright and clean and is marked, "US - 1864 - Ames Mfg Co - Chicopee Mass".  The leather scabbard remains complete and sound with no repairs or weak spots.  This would be a quality addition to any Civil War collection.--$695.

  22. Original, 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.

  23. 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.

  24. 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.

  25. Very - very nice condition Model 1852 Federal Naval Officer's Sword and Scabbard.  The blade is beautiful with deep - crisp engraving from top to bottom.  The guard has a rich never cleaned thick bronze - brown patina, and the grip has the original sharkskin weap and wire.  The blade is bright with sparkling bright engraving and is marked "Philadelphia" and would have been also marked "Horstmann" -  but that mark has been intentionally 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.

  26. Quite ornate non-regulation Model 1850 Federal Field and Staff Officer's sword and scabbard.  The blade is darkening with age, but easily visible engraving remains. The guard is iron and quite ornate with the "cut-out eagle and U.S. and E. Pluribus Unum".  The original leather grip remains intact in some areas and is worn through to polished wood in other areas.  The scabbard has a thick brown aged patina and several small dents from use.  A nice honest example that has clearly "seen the elephant".--$795.

Bayonets

 

  1. Quite attractive, .577 cal., Enfield triangular socket bayonet in original leather scabbard.  This would display very nicely with your .577 cal., 3-band Enfield musket.--$395.

  2.

  3. Very pretty condition, Model 1861, US Navy rifle saber bayonet.  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 display.--$650.

Very 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 areas.--$195.

Quite 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 musket.--$250.

  6. Excavated, .54 cal., 4-side Austrian socket bayonet.  This was recovered over 20 years ago along the Confederate line on private property here at the Battle of Stones River.--$98.

  7. Early 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.

  8. Excavated, 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.  One can only guess what occurred in the battle resulting in this bayonet being broken.  With these two pieces, only the very tip of the bayonet is not present.--$65.

  9. Original, .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 compliment.--$195.

Nice, 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.

  13. Very 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*

  14. Very pretty condition, bright, clean, non-excavated, .69 cal., English Towers, triangular socket bayonet.  This bayonet fit the .69 cal. British counterpart to our Model 1842 rifled musket.  We have recovered quite a number of these from Confederate early war campsites.--$175.

  15. Quite 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 this point.--$95.

  16. Very nice condition, excavated, friction fit, .69 cal., triangular socket bayonet.  This bayonet was recovered over 30 years ago on private property along the Confederate battle line here at Stones River.  It remains in very sound condition, has been cleaned and coated and is ready for display.--$125.

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.

  19. Uncommonly 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.

  20. Very 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.

  21. Early battlefield pick-up look, .577 cal., Enfield, rifled musket, triangular socket bayonet.  The bayonet is missing the lock ring, but is otherwise full length and complete.--$150.

  22. .58 cal., triangular socket bayonet, correct for .58 cal. Springfield 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.

  23. Very 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 sites.--$195.
