Miscellaneous Civil War Relics

MR-42 You don’t dig too many of these Iron heel plates anymore they are long rusted away. These are the plates Union Soldiers wore on the heels on the Jeff Davis Bootees and the Brass Toe protector went on the front of the bootee. That’s a .58 minie in the center of heel plate. This is a nice grouping from Brandy Station, Virginia dug by John Hitt. $40.00

MR-14 If you have always wanted a Napoleonic Cannon well, here is one that will fit in your living room! It has a nice aged brass mustard color and the crested “N” for the Emperor himself. Now this little piece contains a surprise! It is actually a cigarette lighter when you remove the tube. To refill it with lighter fluid you unscrew the breech. It is missing the cotton that goes inside but that can be added. A nice piece of early 1900’s Napoleonic art for that Emperor wanna-be. $75.00

MR-13 Firecracker Cannon. An early 1900’s toy that allowed a child to insert a firecracker in the barrel with the fuse sticking out of the hole in the breech then light it and run! I would think this was a dangerous toy but it survived! I would not advise to try firing it today. The barrel is 3 1/2 inches and from muzzle to trail it is 5 1/2 inches. A neat piece of Americana. $65.00

MR-11 When I first found this I thought it was a crown for someone playing Miss Liberty but….I was udder-ly wrong! This old handmade piece goes on a calf’s head or neck when you are trying to wean it from the Mama cow. The spikes stick Mama cow and she kicks the calf away. You can see how each spike was hand-hammered and then peened onto the metal strap. Nice old piece of Americana from down on the farm. $35.00

MR1 This probably cost more lives in the Civil War than it saved, a sharp Borwick bleeder used to “Bleed” wounded soldiers so the “bad humors” could escape. It only weakened them and many died as a result.
This is a very fine example. $85.00

CS-SPUR-3 A Variant of the CS-4 Spur as described on page 32 in Bill Baird’s great new work, “Confederate, US and Other Civil War Used Spurs”. This one has the rowel and it freely spins. The spur has a nice dark mustard color and is a terrific example for your C.S. Cavalry display or Civil War spur collection. $250.00

CS-SPUR-2 A Variant of the CS-4 Spur as described on page 32 in Bill Baird’s great new work, “Confederate, US and Other Civil War Used Spurs”. This one is missing the rowel as they frequently are but is a great example for your C.S. Cavalry display or Civil War spur collection. $225.00

MR-27 I have always enjoyed digging heel plates for some reason. I guess it is just because they are such a personal item and come in such varied shapes and sizes. Here is a very cool little collection all dug at Port Hudson, La back when you could find these all day long. These would be great framed in a shadow box with a nice Port Hudson label. $75.00

MR-29 I use to collect wooden Bungs and this is one of my favorites. It is marked “Redlich’s Warranted Faucets, Fully Saturated with India Rubber, H.Redlich Chicago” It was apparently prominently featured at the Colombian Exposition of 1893 in Chicago and is so marked on the paper label which has remarkably lasted for 127 years along with the Redlich’s label! A lot of folks collect Exposition materials and this is a really neat piece. $50.00

MR-30 These two spoons were dug in a Union Camp at Port Hudson, Louisiana in the late 1970’s by Legendary Louisiana Relic Hunter and Historian, Billy Spedale. He marked the bowl of one spoon Union but did not mark the unusual Fiddleback spoon. The Fiddleback spoon was a mystery to me due to the oval hole in it's bowl but I have been told it was a “mixing” spoon used to blend ingredients when cooking. The back of this spoon is also marked “Brazil Silver” which means it is Nickel Silver with no real silver content. The pair $25.00

US-SPUR-3 U.S. Pattern 1903 Officer’s Spurs, Mexican Border War Period. Perfectly matched pair of Pattern 1903 Spurs with nicely aged brass, rowels present, and studs on strap plates from an important era of U.S. History. $175.00

MR-26 A pair of solid brass Civil War Era Candlesticks. I can see a staff officer raising the candle up a tad higher with the sliding adjusters to get get a bit more light to write his daily report. Nice condition with a few bumps and bruises but as fully functional today as they were many years ago. A nice addition to a camp display.  $75.00

MR 118 These Gun Flints are part of a cache of more than 200 found at the site of Fort San Carlos in Baton Rouge many years ago. Fort San Carlos was Garrisoned by the Spanish from 1779-1810. Spanish Forces under Bernardo de Galvez captured Baton Rouge from the British on September 21, 1779 during the Revolutionary War. Spain was an ally of the American Patriots and the capture of Baton Rouge denied the British the use of the Mississippi River. British Lt. Colonel Alexander Dickson surrendered the fort, which was little more than a 9 foot deep ditch and mud palisade, after an eight day siege. The Spanish then rebuilt the fort. The new fort, know as Fort San Carlos was shaped like a six-pointed star armed with 16 guns. The fort was rebuilt again by the Spanish in 1799. The fort was demolished in 1819 following construction of what is now known as the “Pentagon Barracks” just North of the old fort.
Each flint will come with a letter of Provenance including the name of the person who found them.

Price $15.00 each
