Description: Here is a nice early packet of ammunition for the M1873 Colt Single Action. This packet has been lightly shellacked hence the color variations. There is one small tear on the top center. The left side has a small split seam on the bottom to the front corner and there is a slight tear on the front top corner facing the front. The pull string is missing on this one. This box is unopened and sealed. This would make an excellent addition to any Colt collection! If you don't want to pay over $900.00 for a similar box with the pull string, this one is for you!

Y355     Empty Box for 10 .50 Remington's Army Pistol Frankford Arsenal 1873

Description: Here is a box for 10 .50 Remington Army pistol cartridges. Every piece of the box is here even though it's in four pieces. The top is separated and so is the side. The interior cardboard holder is loose which is how the box was made originally. The box could be repaired if so desired. The original pull string is still attached and the overall body of the box is shellacked which is how they were produced. This would look great sitting next to a few rounds or near your pistol.

This box is in very nice shape and still has the full pull string attached to the side. There is a very slight seam crack above where the pull string starts but is only mentioned for exactness. This type of box was originally shellacked  giving the appearance of a variation of colors. This would make an excellent addition to any Colt or Indian War cartridge collection.

M11     Late Indian War or Early Spanish American War Company Photo

Description: Here is an excellent image of a company of soldiers that appears to be from Pennsylvania. You can kind of make out a keystone on one of the hat insignia. This is an excellent image and the detail is great. You can see a wide variety of accoutrements such as canteens, cups, web belts, swords, belt plates, a holster, and bayonets. These soldiers are all armed with the .45/70 Trapdoor Springfield muskets. They all appear to be wearing their packs with the tents rolled up on top and their haversacks on the side. The soldier in the front row on the left has a pistol inside of his model 1881 holster. He is also wearing the 1872/72 regulation belt with the US buckle fully visible. He also has the model 1878 canteen strapped to his side. A few of the soldiers have insignia on their hats. Both officer's standing in the front are holding swords and the letters "U.S.V." can clearly be seen on their collars. The majority of the men appear to be wearing the 1880's .45/70 Mills web belts that would have held 45 rounds of ammo with the captive wire ends. The actual image measures approximately 10" x 7" and is mounted on a thick paper stock board measuring 12" x 10". The board has a few bends and a little foxing but the image is in fine shape with plenty of color and detail. 

Measures: 12" x 10"

Price: $95.00

Z628     Ohio State Seal Staff Button (Indian War Era

Description: Here is a very nice Ohio state seal staff officers button. This one has the sun coming over the mountains with the plow in front of the sheaf of wheat with the bundle of five arrows. This two piece button was made for Pettibone Manufacturing Company and was sold by them. They were a dealer in very fancy military goods and you have probably seen several belt rigs and swords made by them for officers. This would be the later style of button that is misting the boat on the front.

Backmark: "(dot) PETTIBONE MFG CO (dot) / CINCINNATI" dm with inner ring of dots

Measures: 22.62mm

Recovered: Non Dug Example

Price: $20.00

Z400    1874 Palmer Infantry Brace Yoke (Watervliet Arsenal Produced)

Description: Here is a pretty nice infantry piece from the 1870's. This is the Palmer Infantry Brace that attached to the Model 1874 belt. This was meant to place some of the weight of the equipment on the shoulders and back rather than the waist alone. The 1874 belt would have held two McKeever cartridge boxes and a bayonet. The two rear straps would have held the haversack and clothing bag. This example is very nice. The leather has some crazing but nothing like the ones I have seen. The leather is supple and the inspector's marking is clear. This would be a great addition to any Indian War collection and would look great holding the belt and cartridge boxes.

Markings: "Watervliet Arsenal" Inspected By: A.R. Smith

Measures: 36" in Length

Price: $195.00 Sale $133.00

Z267     .58 Conversion Block for Musket Tins (Allin Conversion)

Description:  Nice unissued conversion block from Bannermann's surplus. These wooden blocks were produced to hold the .58 rimfire musket cartridge for the Allin conversion. There are two rows of four. The middle brace was removed and replaced with a solid wooden block to hold a total of 8 Allin cartridges on the top and a box of 8 Allin cartridges below. The majority of these conversion blocks will no longer hold the actual cartridges due to shrinking.

Measures: 4.5" x 3.75" x 1.5"

Price: $85.00

Z250    Model 1904 Haversack by Rock Island Arsenal

Description: Here is a very nice marked M1904 Haversack. This one is marked 13 C D C NY 4 over 69. I would assume this is for the Coast Defense Corps?. The interior is marked Rock Island Arsenal but it is faded. This pack does have the ration bag inside of it. The pot metal attachment buttons for the ration bag are in place but rusted. The bag does have some soiling but it looks much better in person.

Measures: 14" x 14"

Price: $65.00

Z68     New York State Seal Button (Indian War Period)

Description: Nice non dug New York coat button. This is the post war type with the wider rim. This is probably from a NYSM coat.

Measures: 23mm

Backmark: "*SCOVILL MF'G Co */ WATERBURY" dm inner ring of dots.

Price: $15.00 Sale $10.00

Z8     Indian War/Spanish American Collar/Sleeve Bars

Description: Here are two very nice collar/sleeve bars. Both of them are about the same length and style but very in color. Each bar comes with a Civil War period cuff button resting in place. This style of bar with the ornate rim pattern is seen on clothing from the New York National Guard. These pieces may be Spanish American or may be slightly earlier. These would make a great addition to any insignia collection.

Measures: 1" x 4.5"
