All buttons remain perfectly intact.
This is a Cavalry Shell jacket nice enough to
be on display in any museum in the

Federal blue forage cap. The cap remains
sound as can be with just a few scattered
small moth nips. The original leather
chin strap remains intact with both kepi
buttons and an original, stamped brass,
Infantry French Horn hat insignia. The
verbal ID. on this hat is to "Private John
Haven - Co. D - 124th IND. VOL. INF." It
appears that he was at both the Battles of
Franklin and Nashville. Head gear this
nice rarely comes along any more, and this
will make a museum grade addition to any
shadow boxed grouping consisting of the
Southern Cross of Honor awarded to 1st
Sergeant Pollard Wood, Co. B, 13th Virginia
Infantry Regiment. And with the Southern
Cross of Honor is a Cross of Military Service
awarded to Pollard Wood's grandson, 2nd Lt.

aviator. This is a family with tons to
be proud of.--$525 for the entire display.SOLD

hole". It has original ropes that
actually go through the top and bottom hoops.
Both heads remain intact as well as the
original snare. With the drum, we are
including an original pair of drum sticks for
display. This drum is not only nice
enough to be on display in a museum, but was
actually recently purchased out of a
rare, Model 1858, bullseye canteen with
original "sky-blue" wool cover. The blue
cover has nice, bright color and is just worn
through on the highlights where the canteen
rubbed the soldier's side. The pewter

There are many more, by far, butternut covered
canteens than sky blue covered

very rare to come by, original, unopened
bottle of "Wright's Relief - Tincture of
Opium". According to the label, this
"great remedy" contains "opium, and 37.5% pure

great stuff, because this tiny bottle cost 25
cents during an era when soldier's made $11
per month. A super nice item for your
medical display.--$95 (and I guarantee the
seal has not been broken.)--SOLD
