19th century HAND TOOL SET

One would expect to find this nice little turned maple set in the tool chest of a 19th century artificer such as a clock maker, gunsmith, tool maker or any craftsman who specialized in fine detailed work. It would not be out of place in among the personal things of a scrimshaw artist or anyone who enjoyed the fabrication of small finely crafted things from wood or bone. The bulbous grip is fashioned from turned rock maple and measures approximately 5 inches in length to include it’s iron chuck. ( Illustrated here with a U.S. quarter for size comparison.) The butt end of the grip screws off to reveal a tool compartment containing 6 handmade iron bits, each designed by the maker for a specific purpose (see illustration). Included among the bits is a small spanner wrench to secure a selected bit in the chuck. Don't forget to give our search feature a try for special wants. A simple key word in lower case works best.

Rare TURNER SOCIETY Civil War BUCKLE / 8th MARYLAND INFANTRY

The beautifully engraved nickel-silver waist belt plate of William Eckhardt as a member of the German American TURNER SOCIETY. (An organization of German immigrants founded in this country in 1848, based on the political and cultural Turner societies that had existed in Germany since the Napoleonic Wars.) We will let the plate speak for itself through our illustrations leaving the bulk of our comment to the history. Rare though they rare, there are sufficient 0if these plates to indicate that each is unique. While they offer common society mottoes and signs with common construction, material and style, each seem to have been individually designed to the liking of the wearer. A common feature though is the identification of the specific society member. In this instance the plate offers the script engraved identification ofWilliam Eckhardt who is listed in the 1858 Baltimore directory as a tavern owner at 13 Second Street. He enlisted on October 29, 1862 to serve as a private of Co. K 8th Maryland Infantry. (His Co. K of the 8th was composed of drafted men and substitutes.) By the 1850s the Turner Society was operating in major American cities with Baltimore as a hub of their influence. Expansion spawned formation of the American Know-Nothing party and ultimately led to violent clashes between the two groups. As strong minded Unionists, Turners served in the Civil War Federal military in such numbers that many chapters became inactive or were disbanded because of the number serving in the army. Existing period images of members wearing these distinctive belt plates and at least one example of a battlefield recovery serves to document Civil War military use by Unionist German immigrants. See Thomas Rentschler’s work on German American service in the Civil War and O’Donnell & Campbell’s work on American Military Belt Plates offering an identified Shiloh battlefield recovery. Referred to by specialist collectors as Clear the road !! or Get out of the way!! waist belt plates for the ever present German ’Bahn Frei’ motto, existing examples are prized by specialty collectors.

c.1821 – 1832 TOPOGRAPHICAL ENGINEER BELL CROWN DEVICES

Though they could be properly utilized by militia through the Mexican War era, these are the larger strap buttons utilized with the regulation bell crown cap of 1821 through 1832. Acquired many years ago in a collection of early American military insignia, this pair remain in fine as new condition as a reflection of what was available from the large 1940s and 50s military surplus dealers. Nicely die struck from brass and lightly gold gilded with soldered on wire fasteners this fine example of the type should not be confused with the smaller counterparts of the 1870s and 80s or lesser quality modern reproductions. Priced for the pair. Buy with confidence! All direct sales are backed by no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased !

3510

Civil War SMITH & WESSON No. 2 ARMY #17155

Serial numbered from #1 to approximately 77,000 Smith & Wesson manufactured approximately 77,000 No. 2 Armies between 1860 and 1873 with approximately 28,000 made and sold during the Civil War. Extremely popular as a private purchase arm among officers and enlisted men alike, the single action, six shot .32 caliber #2 Army, was one of the first revolvers to use self-contained metallic cartridges with all the obviously advantages over loose powder or unprimed black powder cartridges wrapped in nitrate soaked paper. Used but not abused, this extra nice condition Smith & Wesson Army shows good evidence of considerable firing yet retains a good 75 to 80% of it’s original blue finish. A rare combination as the vast majority of these heavily used Armies lost all of their blued finish to the corrosives properties of the old black powder. Though ’shot loose’ from lots of firing (a common malady for this model when exposed to heavy firing) and punched around it’s hinge pin to tighten this joint, No.17155 remains in outstanding condition for the collector who wants a nice looking piece with lots of original finish yet one that has obviously seen service. Manufactured for the now long obsolete .32 rimfire, a soldier desiring a dependable suitable sized sidearm with waterproof metallic ammunition which could be quickly reloaded could do no better than the Smith & Wesson #2 Army. A review of period written material quickly substantiates it’s popular military use. Per John Parson's (Pioneer Single Action Models) in his review of contemporary correspondence a member of the 16th Kentucky Volunteers wrote that his pistol had killed two rebels while Corp. J.O. Sherwin ordered a dozen for his company in the 83rd Illinois. An 8th Iowa Infantry soldier wanted six of the Armies for his friends. Within a single month in 1864 requests for price lists came from the 126th Illinois at Pine Bluff, Arkansas, the 3rd Wisconsin Veteran Volunteers at Atlanta, the 115th Ohio at Murfreesboro, and the 38th US Colored Regiment at Bermuda Hundred. Capt. Frederick Livermore, of a Massachusetts outfit, wrote that ’most of our officers have your make’. and a Capt. H. L. Wheat, 11th Missouri Cavalry, wrote that the S & W Army was the ’best belt revolver I have yet seen’. This opinion was echoed by Major D. Frazar, 13th New York Cavalry. Francis A. Bushee of Company F, 1st Mass. Cavalry, (Killed on 5/11/1864 at Ashland, VA) is known to have carried this model as did Lt. Washington M. Postley of the 78th New York Infantry Regiment and Capt. Gerard Reynolds, 11th Pa. Cavalry,who’s #2 Army was removed from his body when he was killed in action near Roanoke Station, Virginia. The Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Library in Fremont, Ohio houses the President’s Army SN22592 carried in the Civil War. In addition to the large number of privately purchased arms, there is a documented official state issue of the Number 2 as the National Archives have yielded records of a purchase of 731 of these revolvers by the State of Kentucky. (They were purchased for $13.75 each.) All of Kentucky's Number 2 revolvers are thought to have been issued to the 7th Kentucky Cavalry. We do know that Custer carried a #2 at the close of the war (#35731) and that the popular single action saw continued use in the American West after the Civil War. Wild Bill Hickok carried a #2 as Marshall of Deadwood. An unusually nice condition Number 2 Army dating in the heart of the Civil War, this historic single action is guaranteed to please.

Civil War era CDV - Ford Theater, Lincoln Assassination Night - ACTOR

Considered one of the most versatile actors of the period E. A. Sothern is nonetheless remembered primarily for the character Lord Dundreary, the prototypical (silly) English gentry, who he created and played in the popular comedy Our American Cousin. Southern was in fact on the Ford’s Theater stage as member of the cast Our American Cousin the night President Abraham Lincoln was shot by another popular thespian John Wilkes Booth. This all original, photograph is back marked PHOTOGRAPHED BY BASSANO, 122 REGENT ST.. Alexander Bassano, the leading high society portrait photographer in Victorian London, opened his first studio in 1850 at Regent St. in London’s fashionable West End. The studio moved to Piccadilly 1859 thus dating this image between 1850 and 1859. In addition Sothern is photographed here in character as Our American Cousin’s Lord Dundreary. An outstanding offering for the photography, Lincoln, or American theater enthusiast. ALL ITEMS ARE CURRENT & AVAILABLE UNLESS MARKED SOLD!! Thanks for visiting our catalog!!

Gettysburg recovery ‘Modern Woodmen of America’ - Drill Team BELT PLATE

An interesting piece for the fraternal collector this relic die struck brass plate of the Modern Woodmen of America (founded in 1883) has association for the Civil War collector only in that it came out of the well known and widely displayed Civil War relic collection of Dr. Francis Lord who had identified the piece as having been picked up on the Gettysburg battlefield. Clearly a post Civil War loss, likely by one of the thousands of veterans who returned to Gettysburg for reunion, this early fraternal plate with the association devices and the insertion of the letter ‘F’ was likely worn by a member of the well known Modern Woodmen of America Foresters a drill team that performed at numerous parades and patriotic gatherings in the early days of the M W A.
This piece will come with our letter preserving the fact that we acquired this piece several years ago now when we were fortunate enough to directly purchase several large groupings from the personal collection of our long time friend, Dr. Francis Lord. A pioneer Civil War collector from a day when nearly no one else paid much attention to the details of many now valued Civil War collectable categories, Francis authored the widely known, multi volume, pioneer reference, Lord’s CIVIL WAR COLLECTORS ENCYCLOPEDIA. While a lot of detailed knowledge has been gained as the interest and value of Civil War collectables increased so dramatically over the years, Dr. Lord’s authoritative volumes to include his Civil War Suttlers & Their Wares continue to offer valuable reference to Civil War collectors. Among the treasures we acquired from Dr. Lord were examples of relics gathered in his early collecting that reflected his passion for a class of relics commonly referred to as battlefield pickups. Long gone even in the time of Lord’s first collecting efforts, this class of relics came from a time before metal detecting made digging popularly productive. These battlefield pickup recoveries were credited to early Civil War relic hunters commonly called eye-ballers. These early relic collectors visibly searched out treasures remaining on top of the ground or only partially covered by time. Post Civil War relics such as our offering here are clear evidence of personal items dropped or lost by early post Civil War veteran relic hunters. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!!

Civil War CDV - Mjr. General Robert S. Granger as Captain

This nice Civil War vintage CDV of Major General Robert S. Granger is backmarked by E. WOODWARD of New York and offers the early Civil War image of Robert S. Granger as Captain. All in excellent condition with strong contrast and a nice crisp focus, our photo illustration will do best to describe this image leaving us only to advise that Robert S. Granger was born in Zanesville, Ohio, May 24, 1816. He was graduated at the United States
Military Academy at West Point in 1839 and saw his first active service in the Seminole War in Florida in 1840/42. He subsequently served as an instructor of military tactics at West Point before assignment in the Mexican War. After the war then Captain Granger served on the Texas frontier until on April 27, 1861 was captured by Confederates on the Texas coast. Upon his exchange in August, 1862 Granger was commissioned Brig. General of Kentucky troops. He saw service against Confederate troops at Shepherdsville, Lebanon Junction and was brevetted to Colonel of the regular army for action at Lawrenceburg. In October, 1862 he was commissioned Brig. General of U. S. Volunteers. With service as a division commander Granger commanded the districts of Nashville and Middle Tennessee in 1863. He subsequently commanded the District of Northern Alabama where he captured Confederate General Roddey’s camp and drove Gen. Joseph Wheeler out of Middle Tennessee. Gen. Granger defended his district against the raid of Gen. Forrest, and Decatur, Ala., against the army of Gen. Hood. He was brevetted Brigadier-General in the regular army for these services and was awarded the Brevet of Major-General U. S. A. for services during the war. A rare early view of the Civil War commander and Major General as a Captain.

3633

1864 Tyler Texas – Confederate Prison Camp - NEWSPAPERS

A complete set of the three issues ofThe Old Flag a prisoner published newspapers of Camp Ford, Tyler Texas Confederate operated prison. They are dated February 17, 1864, March 1, 1864, and March 13, 1864 with each issue offering four 9.5 X 12 inch pages and comprise rare full set of the The Old Flag with roster. Each period issue was caused to be printed by Capt. William. H. May, of the 23rd Connecticut Infantry from the originals hand penned by him while a prisoner of the Confederates at the Tyler, Texas POW camp. When Captain May was paroled he smuggled the hand written issues out and as promised had copies printed for eventual distribution to his fellow prison inmates. The exact number of prints done by May upon his release is unknown however the accepted estimate is that no more than fifty were done. This offering is from the number printed by Capt. May upon his parole in 1864.
Our own search for material on Capt. May’s work is supportive of a statement we found by Tyler Texas collector, historian and attorney Lee Lawrence advising that there are only four or five copies known to exist. Aside from the full set offered here, which were recently uncovered in a bundle of old Connecticut family papers, we have found existence of only a single set of the three issues and two single examples, the complete set and one single example having been offered by Heritage Auctions of Texas. This offering clearly presents a rare opportunity.
A word about condition: These fascinating newspapers need to be read to be fully appreciated. All are fragile having been printed on poor quality paper and have a central vertical folds with additional quarter folds with some small holes left at fold corners. All three issues and the roster have chipping along edges with various small tears here and there. The original March 13 issue had water damage along the right edge obtained when May smuggled the originals out of the prison camp. He wrote a note of explanation for his printings of the original hand penned issue: This portion of the pages got wet, and torn off in taking it from under my shoulder straps upon arriving in the Federal lines./ W. H. M. These newspapers and the roster are offered just as they came out of decades of storage aside from being carefully unfolded and placed in an archival sleeve. Otherwise all in eye appealing untouched condition with no taping or repairs they are very displayable as is or if you chose ready for archival mounting and framing.
NOTE: As a result of our publishing of this offering we were contacted with an opportunity to acquire a grouping of Capt. William May related material and will make that material available to the purchaser of the above. The additional material consists of a VAIL'S PATENT WORCESTER, MASS JAN.1863 folding camp chair, a hard bound memorial volume published in 1914 by May’s Elias Howe, G. A. R. Post #2. The volume is signed by May’s widow and offers a biographical sketch of the Captain with additional material on his The Old Flag to include reprints of the original with excerpts.
