C.S. JEAN WOOL KEPI. #LB9002. Made by Lukas Burg using Ben Tart’s “Dust” jean wool. Size 7 1/2 ( measures 23 1/2“ around the sweatband. Brand new never worn (except to try on). Black painted cloth visor w/ a bound edge. Single thickness painted cloth chin strap (decorative). Two small U.S. general service eagle side buttons. Lined in unbleached muslin w/ a hand sewn black painted cloth sweatband. Just to mention it, in the two photos showing the body lining, the dark color area in the center of the crown lining is coming out a lot darker than it actually is in person. We tried shooting this in different light but it still came out looking darker than it actually is. Just wanted to pass that on.

C.S. JEAN WOOL KEPI. #TE7340. Maker unknown on this high end pale brown (or like a darker khaki color) C.S. Jean Wool Kepi. Size 7 5/8 (measures 23 1/4“ around the sweatband).

The cap is lined w/ a maroon cotton shirting that has printed multi-colored floral designs. There is a repro "DOUGLASS" (maker) paper label on the lining crown.

C.S. ARTILLERY KEPI. #BC5542. Made by Don Smith this size 7 (measures 23” around the sweatband) C.S. artillery cap was used strictly as a display piece for a number of years and thus remains in excellent condition! There are two very light blemishes on the top of the crown but hard to see unless you look closely (see "blemish" photos). Other than that this cap is in excellent condition as indicated.

This cap features a scarlet red wool broadcloth rise and crown w/ a cadet gray wool sideband. Additional features are a bound edge black enameled reinforced cotton visor, a black enameled two-piece chin strap w/ two flat style plain brass side buttons plus a plain brown cotton lining w/ a black & white print of a mounted P.G.T.

PHOTO NOTE: The red portion of this cap is coming out looking fuzzy in these photos. It is not; it's a smooth finish fine weave broadcloth. Also, this cap was stuffed with paper for the photos just to show height. There is no wire or boning reinforcement along the back rise (made that way by design).

U.S. McDOWELL PATTERN CAP. #BC7718. Made by Jason Willis this McDowell pattern cap is brand new never used and is a size 7 to 7 1/8. Measures 23 1/8” around the sweatband which should equate to around a size 7 3/8. However, I wear a 7 3/8 cap but this McDowell is tight on me. One of the guys in the shop wears a 7 and he said the cap fits him pretty good. So this is why we are classifying it as a 7 to 7 1/8 (max) and will stand behind that sizing. This cap is made from a nice indigo dark blue wool broadcloth and features a crescent cut black enameled single thickness visor, a two-piece flat black chin strap without a buckle, two U.S. general service eagle side buttons and a black leather sweatband installed w/ a mix of hand and machine (vintage treadle machine) sewing. Rounding out this cap is a plain brown cotton lining. No label.

C.S. CADET GRAY KERSEY C.S. KEPI. Sale Pending  #LB9838. Brand new never used cadet gray kersey C.S. kepi in size 7 5/8 (measures 24” around the sweatband). This cap features a tarred bound edge visor, tarred single piece chin strap w/ stamped brass C.S. block “I” side buttons. Inside we have an osnaburg lining and a tarred cotton hand sewn sweatband. Because this hat is brand new and never worn the sweatband is very stiff and would need some breaking in. Maker unknown at this time.

TWO CAPS: BLUE & GRAY. #SH6165. Here are two sutler row caps, one is a U.S. forage cap and the second is a C.S. kepi. These have been worn but remain in overall very good condition. The U.S. cap is a size 7 1/4 (measures 22 3/4“ around the sweatband) and the C.S. cap is a size 6 7/8 to 7 (measures 22 1/8“ around the sweatband). Both have the usual muslin linings - a couple tiny stains or marks on each lining but not a big thing - and both have machine sewn sweatbands. The U.S. FORAGE CAP comes with an infantry horn attached and the front and back of this cap has been tacked down near the crown with a couple stitches (very easily removed). This was probably done to keep the height down a little. Chin strap w/ buckle plus U.S. eagle side buttons are in place. The C.S. KEPI has a gray body w/ a dark blue sideband. This cap has no brass attached. The plain chin strap plus “CSA” side buttons are in place. Order by color (blue or gray).

C.S. SINGLE BAG (“KIBLER”) KNAPSACK. Sale Pending   #BC2808. Well used but still solid and serviceable. Has its share of rubs and paint loss (especially on the corners as would be expected) but there are no rips, tears, repairs on the fabric or loose stitches, The leather pieces are a little dry and would benefit from a light coating of some leather preservative or oil. Now we need to mention that one of the front cross straps is missing. The brass "Chicago screw" type retainer is present but the leather strap itself is missing. Also, one of the small inner bag leather tabs has the end piece missing. Please see photo set #3 for this. Meantime, there is a blue striped cotton ticking compartment divider that has some light stains on it but certainly no problems beyond that. All the buckles and brass hardware are in great shape. Made by C&D Jarnagin.

CARTRIDGE BOXES (& BOX BELTS)

 

1839 CARTRIDGE BOX. #LB1839. This is the pattern of 1839 musket cartridge box (a.k.a. 1841 box) for a .54 caliber weapon. Measures 7” wide x 5” tall x 1 1/2” deep. Made by M.B. Young Leather Work (Mike Brase). Used a couple times but is in great condition! Has an implement pouch but no tin. This box is designed to be worn on the waist belt and has no arrangement for a shoulder belt (“sling”). The front cover has two small vertical slits where a box plate was once attached. The spacing between the slits is 1 3/4“ so this may (??) have been the small U.S. box plate as originally prescribed for this box. Historically this box was used by dragoon and rifle outfits but undoubtedly saw service with a lot of early war volunteers as well. Stamped on the inside is “H.A. DINGEE   N-YORK”.

MAGEE & GEORGE CARTRIDGE BOX & CAP BOX SET. Sale Pending   #SH7635. Sold as a set this Magee & George black leather cartridge box and cap box set was made by C & D Jarnagin. Both items have been well used but remain in solid serviceable condition. Both boxes have surface scrapes and dings plus wrinkles here and there in the leather. However, there is no physical damage to the boxes such as mega deep gouges, broken stitches, loose finials, broken straps, etc). The shoulder belt (which we believe is a replacement from another box since it has more wear than this M & G cartridge box) has the most wear with some small splits along the edges and numerous surface cracks starting on the flat portion (see photos of all this). Both boxes are stamped on the front “MANUFACTURED BY MAGEE & GEORGE, NEW ORLEANS”. These items have been in storage a while but both boxes should clean up/oil up nicely. Here’s the break down per item:

CARTRIDGE BOX: Comes complete with shoulder belt (“sling”). Has one large tin (which has a little rust on the back side but is solid and intact) w/ double compartments. Two dark steel roller buckles on the box bottom for the shoulder belt plus two loops on the back if the owner prefers to sling this box on the waist belt (rather than use the shoulder belt). There are some cleaning patches remaining in the implement pouch. Comes complete with shoulder belt (“sling”). Has one large tin (which has a little rust but is solid and intact) w/ double compartments. Two dark steel roller buckles on the bottom for the shoulder belt plus two loops on the back if the owner prefers to sling this box on the waist belt (rather than use the shoulder belt). There are some cleaning patches remaining in the implement pouch.

CAP BOX: Black leather w/ a shield style front cover. Has fleece inside plus a cone pick with a cord attached. Brass finial on the bottom   for closing. Two belt loops on the back. Entirely machine sewn.

The seller mentioned that to purchase this set (just the two boxes) today would run $295.00.

Both bales though (the ends or tips that go into the box buckles to adjust length) have been re-cut - most likely in an effort to shorten the sling length a little. This work was done by someone at home some point and is a little rough; still works but just a little rough looking (see photos when posted). Please measure the rear sling retainer tabs on your box to insure that this sling (at 2 3/4” wide) will slide through.

SCABBARDS

 

EARLY WAR BAYONET SCABBARD. #RC5858 Has seen its share of field service and is missing its brass tip. Does have some kinks and wrinkles - especially at the bottom where the brass tip was. We debated listing this item because of its condition. However, because its an early war style (pattern 1851) plus has stamps - “GAYLORD ” (maker) and “MILLER” (U.S. inspector) we elected to list it as someone might be able to use it “as is” or even put a tip on it. Maker unknown.

BAYONET SCABBARD. Sale Pending   #BC6250. Two rivet pattern pre/early war pattern black leather bayonet scabbard made by NJ Sekela. Used but has been well oiled down through the years and thus remains in very supple. It does have some light bumps and scrapes here and there but remains in overall nice physical condition.

REMINGTON ("Zouave") SABER BAYONET SCABBARD: #SH2565. Has heavy surface cracking on the 20 3/4” long black leather scabbard but it is still serviceable enough for a couple more season in the field. Could be stripped for the brass pieces and rebuilt (just a thought). Has a brass throat and tip plus a brass lug for attaching the scabbard to the frog. These brass elements need to be cleaned up w/ a little Brasso and steel wool - especially the throat. However, they are intact (but just need cleaning). The frog itself has some creasing in the leather and some light scratches but all stitching is tight. Total length (tip to tip) counting the frog is 25 1/2”. Scabbard and frog are black bridle leather. Has been in storage a while and could definitely benefit by the application of some leather treatment. No stamps or marks. Maker unknown.

ENFIELD BAYONET FROG w/ BUCKLE & STRAP. #SH8837. This black leather Enfield bayonet frog has seen a lot of service and has its fair share of scrapes, dings and rubs plus there are some stitches coming apart on the scabbard itself. However, it is still serviceable enough for at least another season or two. The strap & roller buckle are in very good physical condition (buckle could use a little cleaning). This frog has been in storage a while so it definitely could benefit from a little leather oil or preservative. Made from a heavy leather and principally riveted but does have some stitching. There is a rivet missing on the center front of the frog. However, this does not appear to affect the serviceability of this frog. This item was privately made in Texas. Maker’s mark with a “star” at the top but we cannot make it out the surrounding print. The seller is also throwing in a very well used Enfield brass bayonet scabbard tip (well used but still straight and solid) that can be used to replace a missing tip.

PRICE REDUCED  NAVY CUTLASS SCABBARD. #SH7673. Black leather scabbard for a Navy cutlass. Used and has its share of light scuffs and rubs but is still solid and serviceable. The scabbard has a brass “button” or lug that attaches it to the frog. The scabbard is riveted (22 small white metal rivets, not brass or copper) and the frog is sewn plus has two brass rivets. The scabbard itself measures in at 26” long and fits a 1 1/4" tapered blade (1 1/4” wide at the top). Total length including the frog is 31 1/4“ tip to tip. The brass rivets on the frog have some verdigris on them (copper carbonate - that soft green crusting that forms on copper and brass over time). This can be cleaned off with steel wool or rubbed with a cloth that has been dipped in a mixture of hot vinegar then dabbed in a little salt before rubbing. We'll have some measurements of this item posted shortly.

NEW LISTING  TWO BLACK LEATHER WAISTBELTS w/ U.S. PLATES. #BC5545. Two black leather waist belts w/ 1855 pattern U.S. stamped brass lead filled plates. These are being sold separately. One belt was made by Missouri Boot & Shoe and one by C & D Jarnagin. Both have been used, show some wear, but remain in solid serviceable condition. These belts fit larger waist sizes - one 55" and one 45" (maximum adjusted length).

Here’s the breakdown per belt:

 BELT “A”: Jarnagin made 1 7/8” wide black bridle (smooth finish) leather. Has a 46” maximum adjusted (outward) working length using the current adjustment holes. The plate is lead filled w/ “arrow back” attachment. Has a brass keeper. This belt does have some surface scuffs from use.

 BELT “B”: MB&S made black waxed (rough out) leather. Has a maximum (outward) working length of 56” long using the current holes. The plate is lead filled w/ “puppy paw” back attachment. Originally had a leather keeper but this was cut off at some point. This belt does have some surface scratches from use.

C.S. BLACK BELT w/ SNAKE BUCKLE. Sale Pending   #RC8820 This C.S. black leather belt w/ two headed snake buckle has seen some service. There are some severe cracks in the leather but we’re not sure if that’s from wear or being in storage for a while. Either way, these cracks can be problematic. With that the seller has set the price at the cost of just the brass pieces (the snake buckle and the adjustment buckle). If you’re handy a new belt can be made or a belt blank obtained and the brass pieces added (just a thought).

Meantime, this belt measures in at 1 7/8” wide x 36” maximum adjusted length (33” minimum using the current holes). This belt can be worn as is now but we cannot determine how long it would be until the surface cracks end this belts service life. We debated posting this belt because of its condition but figured we’d go ahead as someone might be able to use it … or the brass parts to make a new belt.

This belt has been used but is still in solid serviceable condition. It does have some light surface creases (from the buckle frame) in the end with the adjustment holes. Been in storage a while so some leather preservative/oil would be helpful here. There are some moisture spots on the back of the belt but this is not physical damage (just cosmetic).

U.S. -or- C.S. BLACK LEATHER BELT; NO PLATE. #GW3437. This black leather belt measures in at 1 3/4” wide, has a working length of between 34" to 37" depending on the type of waist plate used. THis is a modern belt (meaning not one made specifically as a repro for Civil War reenacting). Still, it’s a wide flat black leather belt and in that regard works just fine. This belt has been service in both a U.S. and well as a C.S. application based on the two styles of adjustment holes present - single row & double row. For U.S. or C.S. OVAL STYLE PLATES this belt – once a plate has been attached – has a maximum (outward) working length of right around 34” based on the SINGLE adjustment holes. For A GEORGIA FRAME style buckle the maximum (outward) working length - once a plate has been attached - is right around 37” using the double row of holes. Need to mention that the two points or tines of the Georgia Frame have to have a 13/16" center-to-center measurement (some GA frames vary slightly on this) to match the holes punched in this belt (which have a 13/16" center-to-center measurement). Finally, there is a leather retainer loop from this belts “modern” service” still present. However, it can be removed if desired.

SABER BELTS / SABER BELT RIGS

 

U.S. SABER BELT w/ EAGLE PLATE. Sale Pending   #RC4423 Used but in solid condition. Maker unknown but most likely sutler row. Has been in storage a while so a little cleaning and oiling would be in order. Has a maximum waist measurement of 41” (where it is now set) but will go down to 33” using a punched hole that the current owner added. There are some additional holes on the belt for further adjustment in the upper 30’s range. The rectangular eagle plate is a cast brass item w/ an antiqued (dark brass) finish. The wreath is cast into the plate and is not an applied one. It is also in the antiqued finish and is not silvered. The belt has the two saber hangers with brass swivel snaps and there is an over-the-shoulder (“Sam Browne”) strap for additional saber support. The strap length is adjustable via a brass hook and a series of adjustment holes. All brass hardware is in good shape. The copper rivets have some verdigris on them (that soft green stuff that forms on brass & copper) but that’s easily cleaned off with a little elbow grease. This belt is intact, complete and ready to go back into service (after a little TLC).

BUFF SABER BELT w/ CIRCULAR U.S. PLATE. #JM1550. Custom made by Dell’s Leatherworks this 1 5/8” wide Dragoon style buff leather saber belt can be used in an early war CS. impression as well. The plate can be changed of course but that would be the job for someone with leather sewing tools and skills. But as it is with the circular US plate, it can work for US or CS early war.

This saber belt was used a few times then went into storage and has remained there for a while. The brass pieces have a patina from age but should polish up nicely (if you’re so inclined) with a little time spent on the job. This belt measures in with a 49” waist (counting the plate).There is only one hole in the belt for the adjustment hook (given that this belt was custom made and fitted to the current owner). However, more holes can be punched in (by the new owner) for a wide range of adjustment. The sabers hangers are adjustable via brass center bar buckles but there are no snap swivels on the ends (probably came that way by design). There is no “over-the-shoulder” (Sam Browne) strap (again, probably by design).

C.S. WHITE LEATHER SABER BELT. #LB4200. This Don Smith made C.S. white leather saber belt has a lightweight rectangular tin buckle (w/ a soldered 3-hook attachment adjustment in back) plus tin hardware. NO adjustment holes are present and need to be punched in. This belt was probably much longer when new and the end w/ the adjustment holes cut off. Current maximum working length w/ new holes added would be 42" by our best estimate. This belt has been used and has some dirt marks on the leather. There are also some light dings / scratches on the tin buckle and metal hardware. However, this belt remains in overall very solid serviceable condition. As indicated above, this belt currently does not have any adjustment holes and the buyer would have to punch them in.

BLACK LEATHER BROGANS. SOLD!   #LB9980. Made by Missouri Boot & Shoe and is their model JB-SPO Jefferson bootee. Used but still pretty solid. More on condition further below. Meantime, I size these as a 10 1/2 regular width. That’s the size brogan I wear and these fit me really nice. They may fit a size 11 but that might get a little cramped in the toe. As a size 10 1/2 there’s about a half inch extra room in the toe. This will also come in handy is you wear heavy wool socks. So I’ll size these as a 10 1/2 knowing that will give a comfortable fit. Construction-wise these are sewn soles with nailed heels.

Now as for condition, these are in overall pretty good shape. The uppers are really nice and the soles are in good shape but do show some wear (but no holes or any of that stuff). The heels show the most wear and some of the wear is a little uneven. There were no heel plates attached when these brogans were new and it looks like the heels absorbed the most wear. They’re still serviceable as is but would probably benefit from a couple new layers of heel leather (to replace the elements that have worn unevenly). You could probably add heel plates at this time but they will not rest against a 100% flat heel surface. Just to mention it, Missouri Boot & Shoe MAY?? be able to replace the heels but I cannot speak for those gentlemen. Because these are coming off the secondary market they may not do the work. Just throwing some ideas out there guys.

Finally, these brogans originally ran $330.00 when purchased new. We'll have some inside measurements up shortly.

SNARE DRUM. Sale Pending  #BC5584. Made by the Florance Drum Company of Honesdale, Pennsylvania this drum has been to the field and has some scratches and wear on the shell and hoops. There are also some light dirt marks on the rope elements. With a little care and a small sudsy brush (like an old toothbrush) most of this should clean off. This drum is very solid though and all parts intact. Please check out all the photos closely for the best idea of this drums condition. This drum measures 14 3/4” tall x 13 3/4“ in diameter and features a golden oak shell, red hoops, dark brown ears and a Civil War screw style strainer. It is NOT embellished with any hand-painted motifs nor does it have any tack designs. The head is "Fiberskyn” for better stability in high humidity and bad weather. Take a close look at the photo showing this drum head as it does have some “wrinkles” in it. I’m not a musician so my descriptive terminology for this is way off I’m sure. The bottom clear element has some dings in it but it remains solid and intact. The ropes are synthetic (to also avoid problems during climate change) but are hard to tell from natural fiber one unless examined very closely. There is a small carrying device attached to the side but the drum does NOT come with a sling nor drum sticks (see listing below for STICKS). This item will ship via USPS and be fully insured for the sale price.

SHELTER TENT. #BC1766. Maker unknown on this dog tent (both halves) but originally purchased on sutler row. Made from a stout cotton duck - off-white w/ light brown speckles in the weave. This shelter tent has seen service but remains in very solid physical condition (no rips, rear, repairs, loose grommets, distorted button holes. missing buttons, etc.). It does have some mud spots here and there (very minor) and some black speckling from having been damp then stored (here again, not bad overall) A soap and water scrubbing should clean this tent up nicely (for what little there is to clean :-).

This tent is entirely machine sewn including button holes. Buttons are pewter and there are large size grommets (along the bottom edge). There are leather ties (see photos when posted) in each grommet for securing to stakes. Speaking of stakes there are eight hand-hewn wooden stakes made from branches plus one “Y” piece cut from a limb fork (real field expedient stuff). Accompanying this tent is a 170” long piece of hemp rope.

Each half measure 65” long x 61" high. Each half is a two-piece item with a vertical seam in the center. We do not know if this tent has water proof and/or fire retardant capacity. Always best to assume not. If I can add my unsolicited 2 cents here, if adding waterproofing make plenty sure what you’re brushing or spraying on to your tent is non-flammable . Some waterproofing products are petroleum based.

This tent will ship US Postal Service “Retail Ground” to keep the shipping fee down.

THREE LARGE C.S.A. PROVISION SACKS. #AM9021 Three large (22” wide x 27” tall) C.S.A cotton duck provision sacks w/ period stenciling. Brand new never used except as display items. The sacks were made by A. Martin (an A.C. approved vendor) and the stencil was made by Don Smith (Trans-Mississippi Depot). One bag has a draw string installed but one end of it is inside the top hem. The other two bags do not have draw strings. Now given that there is a small notch or split at the top of each bag where it’s hemmed (see photos), this can be folded over to make a new channel for draw strings to be added. That or you can take out the top hems and rework it for new draw strings. Either method will work (just a thought).

WHITE WOOL BLANKET; #LB9694. Maker unknown on this 96" x 94" (8' x 7'10") white wool blanket. This item has been used but remains in excellent physical condition! Has a few very small stains (about the size of a quarter) near the center, a slightly larger stain (about 3" in diameter) and there is some pale yellowing in spots from age. However, NO physical damage (no rips, tears, repairs, etc) and no odors (smoke, storage, etc). Weighs in right around five pounds. This blanket lived in the knapsack for a while and some of the dark stains probably came from other items stored in the pack as well.

ENAMELWARE COOKING POT. #WN7512.   Medium size (7" in diameter x 5 1/2" deep) black speckleware (enamelware) cooking pot w/ side handles. Pot includes its lid w/ steel wire bale. Has been used but remains in overall very good condition. Only blemishes we can find are three “chips” on the top of the lid (we’ll have photos of this), a little heat discoloration on the top of the wire bale, and some dulled/course surface area on the bottom of the pot from the campfire. This item is a bit out of our CW time frame (it’s more 1870's / 80's +) but it came in w/ a large lot of CW items so we'll post it. :-) As with all tinware we very highly recommend a good HOT soapy water scrubbing.

PHOTOS UP SOON

SALT & PEPPER SHAKERS. #NC8116. From an officer's mess set these small (each measures 1" x 1" x 1") matching crystal salt and pepper shakers are in mint condition. One shaker has its cap but the second one does not. We are currently looking into finding a replacement.
