Miscellaneous Dug Items

  1. Quite unique, excavated, 10 inch, blue/green, French manufactured medicine bottle.  This bottle is marked, "Marque Deposee" which roughly translated means "mark registered or trademark".  The bottle has what appears to be a medical symbol embossed on the side, and has an applied lip at the top.  This bottle was recovered many years ago from a trash pit near to the Confederate camps along Duck River near Shelbyville, Tennessee.  We are not 100% sure of the time frame on this one but believe it to be of the Civil War Era.--$65.

  2. Quite unusual, excavated, GAR medal for the September 5 - 10, 1898, reunion at Cincinnati, Ohio.  This pin was recovered from a Civil War Era home site in Central Ohio and displays very nicely.--$38.SOLD

  3. NOW THIS IS COOL !!  EXCAVATED .36 cal. single shot - bar hammer boot pistol.  This was recovered many years ago in a Confederate camp here at Stones River.  My friend, who recovered this little pistol, hand carved some walnut grips to go back on it, and they look really good.  He was able to get the trigger and bar hammer freed up to work once again.  Not very expensive, but one very nice excavated Civil War weapon !!--$350.

  4. Excavated, Federal, Infantry Bugle stamped brass hatpin.  This hatpin was recovered many years ago just down the street from the shop near what is known as the "Rock Quarry".  The pin has a smooth, chocolate brown patina, and both attachment loops are intact on the reverse.  The small bugle mouthpiece was "as usual" broken and has been restored.  There have been only a handful of these recovered over the years at the Battle of Stones River.--$125.

  5. Very attractive, excavated group of Enfield related items recovered from Confederate Army of Tennessee camps along Duck River near Shelbyville, Tennessee.  The display includes two Enfield nipple protectors with chain, one complete brass Enfield tompion, one drop Confederate mold, .577 cal. Enfield bullet, and one excellent condition and quite rare Isaac Campbell Confederate knapsack hook.  Entire display in a glass display case.--$150.

  6. Excavated group of Confederate artifacts recovered from General Manigault's South Carolina Brigade camps located near Shelbyville, Tennessee.  The display includes an excavated, coat size, South Carolina State Seal button, a Confederate cap box lead finial, a Confederate manufactured brass scabbard tip, and a brass back from a Confederate local button.  All in a glass display case.--$125. for all

  7. Very attractive, heavy solid cast brass, Confederate Cavalry spur that was recovered many years ago from a Confederate Cavalry camp located in Orange County, VA.  This style Confederate spur is believed to have originated from a small foundry located at Richmond Virginia.  Interestingly, we recovered an exact matching spur from an August 1863 Confederate Cavalry camp here in Middle Tennessee.  This particular spur was discarded, because one of the legs broke.  Both pieces were present when found, and the broken leg has been epoxied back into place.  This will make a very nice addition to any Confederate Cavalry display.--$150.

  8. Quite a unique find, original, excavated Enfield musket tompion with much of the original cork still intact up inside the tompion.  Very neat relic presented in a glass Riker display case.--$25.

  9. Unusual dug glazed brown clay pipe bowl recovered from a Confederate camp trash pit along Duck River near Shelbyville, TN.  The figure appears to possibly be Middle Eastern.  It will make a neat addition to someone's excavated artifact display case.--$45.

  10. Absolutely beautiful, hand-carved, lead ring fashioned from a bullet.  The top of the lead ring has three initials that appear to be "USA".  The US is pretty well completely formed, and a faint A can be seen that was to be used as a guide, but it was not completed.  This is one of the coolest carved lead artifacts that I have seen in a long time.  It was recovered from a Federal camp near Manassas, VA, in the mid-1960's.  This is about as cool as carved lead gets.--$250.

  11. Beautiful condition excavated lead filled concentric ring "Artillery" rosette recovered about 20years ago from here at the Battle of Stones River.  I don't think that you could recover a nicer example than this one.--$75.

  12. Really pretty, excavated, 4 inch, glazed crock food jar.  This jar was recovered from a Confederate trash pit located near Lavergne, Tennessee.  It will add a pretty touch of color to your excavated Civil War artifact display.--$65.

  13. Excavated crude cast brass saber pommel cap recovered from an 1862 -1863 winter Alabama Cavalry camp located here in Middle Tennessee.  It appears to me to likely be from a Confederate "Dog River" Cavalry saber.--$65.

  14. Beautiful cased artifact display purchased out of a local private museum.  This display consists of an excavated Model 1851, cast brass, sword belt plate recovered from an 1863 camp Stanley trash pit, an 1863 Patriotic token, an excavated soldier's pocket knife with bone handle intact, an excavated 12mm pinfire cartridge, an excavated .69 cal. Confederate buck and ball, an excavated tin containing percussion caps, an excavated bayonet scabbard tip with leather still inside, one CS used excavated floral button, 4 Federal Eagle buttons, two excavated knapsack hooks, and several other smaller artifacts.  These artifacts are all displayed in a very nice 12 x 18 glass face walnut display case.--$395. for the entire display.

  15. Very nice condition, excavated, heavy, solid cast brass, Confederate pattern Cavalry spur.  This spur was recovered many years ago from Roddey's 1862 - 1863 Alabama Cavalry camp located near Chapel Hill, Tennessee.  The spur has a very nice, uncleaned, brown/green patina, and the wear pattern of the spur suggests it was worn on the left boot heel.--$295.

  16. Very pretty, excavated, slick emerald green, Confederate Cavalry spur.  This spur was recovered over 30 years ago from a Confederate Cavalry camp located near Kennesaw, Georgia.  It is a style spur that had a long, extended neck much like a Mississippi spur.  The spur broke at the narrow, weak point on the neck.--$95.

  17. Excellent condition, excavated, "1861" dated, Federal Cavalry Officer's spur.  This spur was recovered from Federal Cavalry camps near Triune, Tennessee, that were occupied during the spring of 1863.  It has the 1861 date on the inside of the spur.  Remnants of the rusty iron rowel remain intact.--$275.

  18. Very rare to recover, excavated, IRON, Isaac and Campbell English import, Confederate used knapsack hook.  Over the past 50 years, I have recovered probably 40 - 50 brass Isaac and Campbell knapsack hooks and only one single iron example.  This example was recovered from 1862 Confederate camps here in Middle Tennessee.--$65.SOLD

  19. Very nice condition, excavated, complete Federal Cavalry, Civil War "picket pin".  This picket pin was recovered about 40 years ago from Camp Stanley here at Murfreesboro, Tennessee, the 1863 Federal Cavalry winter camp following the Battle of Stones River.  The camp was named after their commander, General David Stanley.  This picket pin remains in very nice condition and has already been cleaned, coated, and is ready for display.--$195.SOLD

  20. Quite rare to recover, original Enfield nipple protector with chain.  This artifact was recovered about 40 years ago from the 1862 - 1863 winter camp of the 2nd Tennessee Infantry -C.S.A.- located near Tullahoma, Tennessee.--$48.

  21. Very pretty, complete, excavated, Federal Enlistedman's brass shoulder epaulet.  It is very difficult to recover an epaulet in complete condition like this one.  This example was recovered over 40 years ago from private property near Shiloh.--$95

  22. Quite rare, excavated PAIR of Isaac Campbell Confederate knapsack hooks.  This set includes both the J-hook portion and the portion which the J-hook connects to.  This set was recovered from 1862 - 1863 Confederate camps located along Duck River near Shelbyville, Tennessee.--$95. for the pair.SOLD

  23. Excavated soldier's pocket mirror that was hand crafted by folding a brass back around a portion of a broken pocket mirror.  The brass back has initials carved on the reverse.  This artifact was recovered from a Confederate camp located near Tunnel Hill, Georgia, by Dr. Rees Buttram about 40 years ago.  The brass back is about the weight of a stamped brass Confederate buckle, and it is possible that the Confederate soldier might have used a stamped brass Confederate buckle to form the back of his mirror.  This is a very cool excavated soldier's personal item that was very meaningful to the Confederate soldier in the field.--$75.

  24. Hand crafted Confederate side knife blade formed from a file.  This was recovered about 30 years ago by Dr. Rees Buttram from a Confederate winter camp located near Dalton, GA.--$75.

  25. Super Rare to recover.  This is a REALLY NICE condition excavated high copper content -"single hole" Confederate Richmond Musket nosecap.  This is the first one of these that I have seen recovered in ages.--$95.

  26. Hand carved brass device recovered from an 1863, Army of Tennessee winter camp near Tullahoma, Tennessee, by Kenny Banks.  Some relic collectors who have seen this feel it to be a soldier, hand-carved, "snake" -- while others feel that it is a hand made brass tool for pulling leather stitching through leather, making repairs in the field.  I can't say for sure which it is, but I can say it is --$35.

  27. Here is an incredibly RARE item to excavate.  This is a complete recovered cast brass "EAGLEHEAD" Civil War Officer's spur.  This very rare spur was recovered from one of Gen. N. B. Forrest's 1863 C. S. Cavalry winter camps located near Spring Hill, TN.  The spur clearly appears to have been worn on the left boot.  When was the last time that you saw one of these dug !!!--$595.

  28. Excavated "general service" brass waist belt buckle, coat size Confederate "Block I" Infantry button, and coat size Confederate used floral button.  These three artifacts were all recovered together in General Lucius Polk's, winter of 1863, Army of Tennessee Brigade camp located near Tullahoma, Tennessee.  Two of these three items were non-military and privately acquired mostly from the soldier's homes.  The two-piece Confederate "I" (Infantry) button is standard CS military issue and was issued in quantity in Tullahoma, Tennessee, during this time.  This display is perfectly representative of the typical buttons and buckle being worn by a large percentage of the Army of Tennessee - CSA - in 1863.--$125.

  29. Excellent condition pair of excavated, cased artifacts.  One of the two items is a Springfield combination musket tool.  The second item is a two-piece, brass sword hanger from a Model 1851, Federal Cavalryman's sword belt rig.  Both these artifacts were recovered over 40 years ago by Dr. Rees Buttram on private property near Chickamauga, Georgia.--$45.

  30. Excavated, regulation, Federal Cavalry bit.  This bit remains complete with both cast brass US rosettes remaining intact.  It was recently found in a old log barn near the battlefield here at Stones River.  It was no doubt picked up on the field after the battle and ended up out in the barn.  It is a rarity to find a Civil War Era Cavalry bit surviving intact.  The bit has a smooth, brown patina but is not pitted nearly as severely as it would have been if recovered from under the ground.  Every Civil War collection should have a nice Cavalry bit.--$175.

  31. Excavated iron Confederate cartridge box roller buckle with a good size root growing right through it.  This was recovered by Wayne Tucker from a Confederate camp near Mobile, AL.--$38.

  32. Excellent condition excavated small brass "Acorn".  This was recovered many years ago from the camp of the Federal 14th Army Corp. -Army Of The Cumberland - here in the Western Theater.  The acorn was the Corp Badge for this unit.  Many years ago Nita dug almost a twin to this one in one of their camps.--$195.

  33. Quite rare battlefield pick-up, .36 cal., Remington New Model Navy revolver.  This revolver was picked up near Atlanta several years after the war.  The revolver shows evidence of being exposed to the elements for some time but is not completely frozen up.  The cylinder will still turn, and the hammer will still move.  This is the revolver that the little .36 cal. "tear drop" projectile fit.  We are including a display with a tear drop bullet and also percussion caps.  This will make an excellent centerpiece for an excavated artifact display.--$975.SOLD

  34. Small display containing an excavated Enfield musket tompion with part of the cork still intact, together with a hand-made soldier's lead poker chip marked with an "X" (meaning 10).  These items were both recovered by Kenny Banks from 1863 winter camps of Hardee's Corp. Army of Tennessee located near Tullahoma, Tennessee.--$65 for the entire display.

  35. Really nice display of an excavated group of quite rare Confederate artifacts.  (1) Is a COMPLETE excavated cast brass flashpan to a Model 1816 flintlock musket.  These are almost found in Confederate camps 100% of the time. (2)  Rare excavated Confederate manufactured brass bayonet scabbard tip recovered from 1862 - 1863 winter Confederate camps along Duck River near Shelbyville, TN. and (3) A broken .577 cal. Enfield musket ramrod head.  Entire display only.--$75.

  36. Excavated, Federal Cavalry bit recovered from an Alabama Cavalry camp located here in Middle Tennessee and occupied during the Spring of 1863.  The Confederate soldier pried both cast brass US rosettes off the bit and used it plain.  The bit when recovered still had the original cast brass curb chain attached.  This is an excellent example of Southern Cavalry making do with whatever they could obtain.  This artifact will be a fine addition to any excavated, Confederate Cavalry artifact display.--$150.

  37. Very nice condition "barn find", Federal "high port" regulation Cavalry bit.  This was a local find near the site of Camp Stanley which was the site of Rosecran's Cavalry winter encampment during the months of January - June of 1863.  The bit remains very sound with a near dug-like patina.  Interestingly, the US rosette on one side has a period between the U & S, and on the other side, there is no period between the U & S.  Bits with this type extreme "high port" were usually reserved for horses with "bad manners".--$195.

  38. Very pretty excavated Confederate "Leech and Rigdon" (Memphis Novelty Works) C.S. cavalry enlistedman's spur.  This spur was recovered several years back from a Confederate Cavalry camp located on private property near Chickamauga, GA.--$295.

  39. Quite rare to recover - excavated set of keepers for the four-piece, Model 1841, Mississippi Rifleman buckle.  These were recovered by Kenny Banks from 1862 - 1863 Army of Tennessee Confederate Infantry camps located around Tullahoma, Tennessee.--$48. for the pair.

  40. Quite rare, excellent condition, excavated, patent style spur that had the separate piece neck and rowel.  On these style spurs, the separate piece neck and rowel was often something very ornate like an eagle head or a horse head.  On this spur, the cast brass neck and rowel piece is not present and is likely why the spur was discarded.  I have over the years had a number of the cast brass neck and rowel portion of this style spur come through the shop.  If you know where one is or can round up this piece, you will have an incredibly beautiful Civil War Officer's Cavalry spur.  This spur was recovered in one of Fighting Joe Wheeler's 1863 Confederate Army of Tennessee CS Cavalry camps.--$150.

  41. Excavated, very ornate, cast brass buttplate from an 1800's era flintlock musket.  This very attractive artifact was recovered from Hardee's Corp 1863 Army of Tennessee winter camps around Tullahoma, Tennessee.--$48.

  42. Massive, excavated, brass signal.  This complete, Model 1840, Federal non-commissioned officer's brass sword guard was recovered many years ago by Kenny Banks from Union camps here in Middle Tennessee.  The guard has never even been washed off and has a beautiful, pea-green patina tip to tip.--$95.

  43. Beautiful condition, excavated, heavy cast brass, Confederate bayonet scabbard tip.  This was recovered from Lucius Polk's 1863 Confederate Brigade camp located at Tullahoma, Tennessee.  These are quite rare to recover.--$25.

  44. Beautiful condition, excavated set of "puppy paw" belt buckle hooks.  This was recovered from an 1862 - 1863 Confederate winter camp and was no doubt created by melting the lead out of the back of an early US buckle or State Seal buckle and used by Army of Tennessee Confederates as their actual belt buckle.  The hooks show wear and were no doubt actually used.--$48.

  45. Talk about a HUGE SIGNAL - Complete excavated Federal cast brass Model 1840 N.C.O. (Non-Comissioned Officer) sword guard.  This was recovered by Kenny Banks from Federal camps following the Battle of Stones River.  It is broken, but both pieces were present.--$85.

  46. This is an absolute soldier work of art.  It is the Eagle carefully and perfectly carved out of a Jeff Davis hat pin.  You won't see over one of these this nice recovered in a 10 year period.--$250.

  47. Quite rare to recover, excavated, die-struck, brass Eagle centerpiece to a Civil War Officer's two-piece Eagle sash buckle.  The Eagle center disc has a smooth chocolate patina with super crisp detail.  This would be an excellent addition to any excavated relic collection.--$95.

  48. A display containing two excavated artifacts from the 1862 - 1863 Confederate winter camps along Duck River near Shelbyville, Tennessee.  The first artifact is a cast lead finial to a Confederate cartridge box.  The second piece is the brass insert for a Model 1816 musket that has been converted from flint to percussion.  This brass piece filled the spot where the flint flash pan originally was.  Both artifacts are Rebel as can be.--$48.

  49. Excavated, cast brass, patchbox door from a Model 1841 Mississippi rifle.  This was recovered from Confederate camps following Stones River and was somehow broken into three pieces.  This is quite a feat considering how thick and strong a patchbox door is.--$45.

  50. Complete, excavated, regulation Federal Cavalry bit with both cast-brass US rosettes remaining intact.  This Cavalry bit was recovered about 30 years ago from a trash pit in "Camp Stanley" which was the 1862 - 1863 Federal winter Cavalry camp here in Murfreesboro following the Battle of Stones River.  The bit remains exactly as it was recovered and can be cleaned to a collector's personal taste.  This is an excellent artifact rarely recovered complete.--$195.

  51. Beautiful condition, excavated, Confederate side knife, hand blacksmith crafted from a file.  The knife still has the original brass cross guard intact on the tang.  It was recovered about 30 years ago from a Confederate camp on Bear Creek near Tupelo, Mississippi.  It is going to make a fine addition to someone's excavated Confederate weapons display.--$395.

  52. Really pretty, 12 inch x 18 inch, matted display containing 23 artifacts including a Confederate style Martingale Heart, 20 excavated US and CS cap and cartridge box finials, and two Richmond Arsenal Gardner bullets.  This entire display of artifacts was recovered from Confederate Camps around Brandy Station, Virginia.--$295 for the entire display.

  53. Very rare, excavated, cast brass, Confederate Richmond musket nose cap together with the brass rowel holder of a Richmond Arsenal spur.  Both artifacts are presented in a matted glass case.--$85.

  54. Excavated portion of a VERY rare "IOWA" lead hat pin.  This was recovered on private property near Shiloh by Brant Arnold and is the "OWA" portion of the hat pin.  I have absolutely NO DOUBT that Robert McDaniel could restore this rare piece to display complete and would look like a million bucks.  In complete condition these guys run something like $500. to $600.  This can be a WONDERFUL display piece and at a price that a young collector "cutting grass" could afford !!--$125.

  55. Excavated, cast brass, Patriotic Eagle tension device usually found around the perimeter of Civil War Era banjos and drums.--$65.

  56. Beautiful condition complete regulation Federal Cavalry bit with both cast brass "U. S." rosettes intact.  This nice Federal Cavalry bit was found in an old log barn here at Stones River located very near "Camp Stanley" which was the Federal 1862 - 1863 Winter Camp for the U. S. Cavalry Corps located here under Federal General David Stanley.  I feel it very likely that this bit found its way to the log barn from the massive Federal 1862 - 1863 winter Cavalry Camp so close by.--$250.

  57. Beautiful condition, excavated, Civil War combination musket wrench.  This musket tool was excavated over 30 years ago from private property near the Battle of Chickamauga, Georgia, by Dr. Rees Buttram.  The tool remains in such nice condition that the folding screwdriver blade will still rotate.  This tool could easily still break a Springfield musket down today.--$65.

  58. Beautiful condition, excavated set of brass cufflinks and a rare "Eagle motif" portion of a private purchase military watch fob.  The Eagle is finely detailed and can be seen clear as can be.These two artifacts were recovered from the 1863 winter camp of the 16th Alabama Infantry located along Duck River near Shelbyville, TN.  These two artifacts were recovered from the 1863 winter camp of the 16th Alabama Infantry located along Duck River near Shelbyville, TN.--$95 for both artifacts.

  59. Very nice display containing brass Cavalry sword rig hardware.  Included is, (1) a sword belt plate keeper, (2) a brass sword belt adjuster buckle, (3) a two-piece brass sword hanger hook.  All three pieces were recovered at "Camp Stanley" which was General Rosecran's winter Federal Cavalry camp during the spring of 1863 after Stones River.--$55 for all.

  60. Excavated, brass powder flask that was recovered from an 1863 Confederate Infantry camp near Murfreesboro, Tennessee.  Both sides of the flask are present, but are separated at the seam.  With some TLC, this could be a very nice artifact to display.--$45.

  61. Excavated pair of "Rooster Neck" regulation, cast brass, Federal Cavalry spurs.  These spurs were recovered from Camp Stanley which was the 1863 Federal Cavalry main winter campsite here at Murfreesboro, Tennessee.  One of the spurs remains in near perfect condition, and the second spur got too close to the fire and nearly completely melted away.--$89. for both.

  62. Quite rare, excavated, iron frog hook from a Confederate Linen musket sling.  This one remains complete and was recovered from the camp of the 16th Alabama Infantry.--$45.

  63. Excavated Federal grouping consisting of a seldom recovered huge, brass, blanket roll pin and found with both a left and right Federal knapsack J-hook.  Entire display--$45.

  64. Quite rare to recover (and super hard to find when you need one) pair of excavated waist belt plate "brass hooks".  One of the hooks is a Confederate strip brass hook of the style found on "Roper Border -Regulation - and Breckenridge" style, stamped brass, Confederate waist belt plates.  The second hook is an excavated "stud" style that is found on 1840 - 1850 era State Seal and early US Oval waist belt plates.  Both hooks were recovered from an Alabama Infantry camp along Duck River near Shelbyville, Tennessee.--$65 for both.

  65. Very nice condition, excavated, Confederate used, private purchase, heavy cast brass spur.  The spur has an uncleaned brown/green patina and is a recent recovery from a Confederate Cavalry camp here in Middle Tennessee.  I personally recovered a near identical spur a few years back from the camp of Starnes 1863 Confederate Cavalry camp.--$275.

  66. Excavated folding "box-end" Springfield combination gun tool.  This was recovered on private property along the battle line here at Stones River many years ago.  It is nicely cleaned and coated, and ready for display.--$45.

  67. Excavated interwined brass cavalry curb chain that was recovered many years ago by Steve Mullinax from private property at the Battle of Atlanta, GA.  This artifact was in Steve's private collection for over 30 years. Here is your chance to own an artifact from the collection of one of the pioneers in our collecting field.-- $125.

  68. Excavated bail from a camp cookpot.  This was recovered from an Army of Tennessee, 1863, Confederate winter campsite located along Duck River near Shelbyville, Tennessee.  Not super rare, but a camp item that you do not recover every day.--$35.

  69. Complete, excavated, cast brass, Confederate, Cavalry spur.  This was recovered many years ago, and has a smooth olive green patina with remnants of the iron rowel.  The spur has traits leading one to think that it is likely a product of Leech and Rigdon of Memphis, Tennessee.--$295.

  70. Very nice condition, excavated, lead-filled, Federal artillery rosette.  The face has a very nice, never cleaned, brown/green patina, and the reverse has full lead and one attachment hook remaining intact.  This rosette was recovered from a Federal camp near Brandy Station, Virginia, a number of years ago.--$65.

  71. Group of three unique, excavated artifacts recovered from the Battle of Franklin and out of Mr. Herbert Harper's collection.  The first item is the "hooking device" out of the back of an early pattern "puppy paw hook" US Oval waist belt plate.  The second item is a portion of a brass, Confederate Cavalry spur.  The third item is a brass bayonet scabbard tip with leather still protruding from the top of the brass tip.  All three items are displayed in a glass riker case.--$95 for all three.

  72. Excellent condition, excavated, regulation, Federal Cavalry spur.  This spur was recovered on private property from Camp Stanley, which was the 1863 Federal Cavalry winter camp here at Murfreesboro, Tennessee.  The spur has an interesting modification in that the standard rowel has been replaced by a very sharp, brass, spike like object.  Apparently this cavalry soldier had a horse requiring "extra stimulation".  I tried this on Nita, and it really works (only once)!!--$65.

  73. Excavated, heavy cast brass, Confederate Cavalry spur.  This spur was recovered from the 1863 camp of Starnes Confederate Cavalry.  The spur is quite heavy and is worn in such a way that it is clear that it was worn on the left boot.--$195.

  74. Excavated group of three artifacts recovered from Wharton's 8th Texas Cavalry Camp located just South of Unionville, TN. and occupied during the Spring of 1863.  The group consists of a blacksmith made Confederate stirrup - a brass toe plate, and a cast brass heel plate with the "heart design".  All three were recovered about twenty years ago.--$75. for all

  75. Excellent condition, "semi"- excavated, regulation Union Cavalry spur.  This is an early 1900 era battlefield pickup and is in such nice condition the rowel will still turn.--$85.

  76. 4relics.jpg (40397 bytes)4relicsrev.JPG (51730 bytes)Display of 4 excavated purely Confederate artifacts recovered from the 1863 winter camp of the 2nd Tennessee Infantry - C.S.A. -  located on private property near Tullahoma, TN.  The display consists of a coat size Confederate floral button - a purely Confederate lead Cartridge Box finial - a blob top Confederate nose pour Minie - and a .58 cal. "Richmond Lab." Gardner - all displayed in a glass display case.--$75. for all

  77. Perfect condition excavated heavy cast brass private purchase {but Confederate used} cavalry spur.  This one was recovered from Starnes 1863 C.S. Cavalry camp located near Altamont, TN.  It has the rowel perfectly intact and a nice green/brown uncleaned woods patina.  A very nice piece.--$275.
  78. .69 cal musket barrel that appears to have been severed by an artillery shell.  This unusual artifact was recovered on private property at Shiloh by Dr. Rees Buttram in the late 1960s.  This barrel is a Model 1816 converted from flint.--$95.
  79. Quite rare beautiful excavated gilted brass 1884 "James G. Blaine" Presidential token.  In the Presidential token world - this is one that you don't see every day.  "Republican Candidate for President - 1884"--$95.
