    NATHAN B. FORREST CAVALRY CORPS REUNION BADGE

    This is a complete and original Forrest Cavalry 3-piece ladder badge measuring roughly 3 & 3/4" high and 1 & 3/4" wide. There's a tiny pinhole above Lee's head on the top bar and slight scratches to Forrests' face, but the medal is in much better condition than my photo shows. A really desirable veterans medal at a very reasonable price.

    MAJOR GENERAL CIVIL WAR FROCK COAT
    MAJOR GENERAL CIVIL WAR FROCK COAT

    MAJOR GENERAL CIVIL WAR FROCK COAT

    This Frock Coat was owned by Major General John B. McIntosh and he is pictured all over the internet wearing it. McIntosh was born in Tampa, Fla. June 6, 1829. He entered the United States navy as midshipman in 1848 an resigned in 1850. In 1861 he entered the United States army, being appointed 2nd lieutenant, 2nd cavalry, on June 8 of that year. He was transferred to the 5th cavalry, Aug. 3, 1861; promoted 1st lieutenant June 27, 1862, and captain Dec. 7, 1863. He served in the Shenandoah valley and in the defenses of Washington and subsequently in the operations of the Army of the Potomac on the Peninsula, and was brevetted major Aug. 5, 1862, for gallant and meritorious services in the battle of White Oak Swamp. He served under McClellan at South Mountain and Antietam, became colonel of the 3d Penn. cavalry on Nov. I5, 1862, and commanded a brigade in the Chancellorsville campaign and at Gettysburg, where he won the brevet of lieutenant-colonel for gallantry. He was severely injured by a fall of his horse in Sept., 1863. He commanded a brigade in Grant's campaign against Richmond, taking part in Sheridan's raid at Trevilian Station, May and June, 1864, including the battle of Ashland on June 1, for which he was brevetted colonel and given a commission as brigadier-general of volunteers. He lost his leg at the battle of Opequan, or Winchester, Sept. 19, 1864, and on his recovery he was placed on court-martial duty. On March 13, 1865, he was brevetted brigadier-general for gallant and meritorious services in the battle of Winchester, major-general U. S. A. for gallant and meritorious services in the field during the war, and major-general of volunteers for distinguished gallantry and good management at the battle of Opequan. He was mustered out of the volunteer service April 30, 1866, and was made lieutenant-colonel of the 42nd infantry on July 28 of that year. He was governor of the Soldiers' Home, Washington, D. C., 1868-69, served as a member of the retiring board of New York city, and was retired with the rank of brigadier-general July 30, 1870. He died in New Brunswick, N. J., June 29, 1888. The coat is in wonderful condition and has his name in brown ink on its collar tailor tag. If you are a Civil War Artifact Dealer, there is still profit in this coat at my very reasonable price. If you're collector, don't wait too long to call me.

    CIVIL WAR ARTILLERY SHELL JACKET
    CIVIL WAR ARTILLERY SHELL JACKET

    CIVIL WAR ARTILLERY SHELL JACKET

    This is an excellent condition and original Civil War Artillery Shell jacket complete with stenciled inspection, maker mark. It's getting tougher to find these in such wonderful condition with the markings you want to see. 100% complete with all of its original buttons and pillows. There is also a name, "Stewart" in the sleeve of what appears to be of a more recent ink marker origin. I can only surmise that some family descendent marked the coat to retain its identity, but obviously no one can tout it now as there was absolutely no provenance accompanying the jacket.

    PRICE - $2,450.00

    INSCRIBED CIVIL WAR AOP BADGE - SIGNAL CORPS
    INSCRIBED CIVIL WAR AOP BADGE - SIGNAL CORPS

    INSCRIBED CIVIL WAR AOP BADGE - SIGNAL CORPS

    This is a really super Army of the Potomac Medal that is inscribed on its back, "Major J. C. Paine, Signal Officer, HeadQuarters, Army Potomac". Signal Corps Artifacts are extremely rare and this would be great item to add to a collection from that organization. Paine first mustered into the 57th New York Infantry as a First Lieutenant in August of 1861. He was commissioned as a Captain in the Signal Corps in March of 1863 and moved up in rank to eventually be Brevetted to Lt. Colonel serving as a commander in Virginia. This man needs further research, which I'll leave to the buyer.

    OFFICERS SADDLE STIRRUPS, WAR OF 1812 - CIVIL WAR
    OFFICERS SADDLE STIRRUPS, WAR OF 1812 - CIVIL WAR

    OFFICERS SADDLE STIRRUPS, WAR OF 1812 - CIVIL WAR

    This is a good condition pair of Mounted Officer's Saddle Stirrups as used by high ranking Federal and Volunteer Officers as early as the War of 1812 and used through the Civil War. The display a patriotic eagle medallion on each side and are made of iron and are coated with brass. I doubt that the coating of brass is sheet as many claim. Rather, these parts and others like them are hot dipped, similar to the production of galvanized steel where steel parts or a continuous sheet are dipped on a continuous mill that runs into a vat of molten zinc and rises out with a few thousands of an inch of shiny crystalized zinc on the surface. I doubt that there were rows of workmen with teeny tiny hammers clanking away on sheet brass to form it over these stirrups. The only alternative process during their period of manufacture that was efficient and makes sense was a molten dip. The coating provided corrosion resistance and was quite decorative. After polishing, these would be have been lacquered or had a flash of gold gilt applied for the finished effect. This pair, which I estimate was made during the Mexican War, retain all of there brass coating, but are filthy dirty. They are untouched. A gentle cleaning would bring them back to life and these are great for display on a book-shelf or when put onto a fine period saddle. These used to sell for $2500 - 3500.00. These are quite reasonably priced.

    CORPS BADGE OF SOLID GOLD & SILVER, CIVIL WAR - 102nd NEW YORK
    CORPS BADGE OF SOLID GOLD & SILVER, CIVIL WAR - 102nd NEW YORK

    CORPS BADGE OF SOLID GOLD & SILVER, CIVIL WAR - 102nd NEW YORK

    This is a really nice Corps Badge identified to a member of the 102nd New York Infantry, Charles Fleet of Company F. Charles mustered into the 102nd as a private on 12/3/61 and was in for the duration of the war having re-elisted 12/30/63. He mustered out in July of 1865 and reached the rank of Corporal. The 102nd saw plenty of fighting during the war, seeing action at Cedar Mountain, 2nd Bull Run, Antietam, Chancellorsville, and Gettysburg and then headed west to participate in many of the battles of the Atlanta Campaign to include Lookout Mountain, Missionary Ridge, Ringgold Gap, Mill Creek, Resaca, Kennesaw Mountain, Peachtree Creek, the March to Savanna and finally the Carolina's. The medal itself is gorgeous, made of coin or sterling silver with a 12 - 14 carat gold disc on the face. The top pin is inscribed "C. E. Fleet", and the gold disc, "Co. H, 102, N.Y.V.V.". The entire 12th Corps Star surface is hand chased and engraved in decorative motif to enhance its body, the star of The medal does not appear to have ever been cleaned or touched. A great Corps Badge Medal about the size of a half-dollar.

    CIVIL WAR CAMP HATCHET
    CIVIL WAR CAMP HATCHET

    CIVIL WAR CAMP HATCHET

    This is actually a very rare artifact as few of these have survived intact with such condition and originality. This is a camp hatchet as ordered by the Union from C. Hammond of Philadelphia, Pa. during the Civil War, and so marked. Hammond, among others, is listed as having supplied several thousand hatchet under government contracts. Thousands of these and similar hatchets were ordered and supplied to virtually every US and Volunteer unit that served. There are accounts of these used by riflemen similar to what the early settlers used and referred to as a tomahawk, and I'm sure a few were used and/or carried in battle. The trick is finding one with the original haft (handle) and in really fine condition. I have seen these sell complete for $600 - 700.00 retail, but always beat up or with replaced hafts. This hatchet is virtually attic mint. That is, it was never used or abused and put away safely to just age, like a fine wine. To find a hatchet in this condition is like finding an attic mint '63 musket that was never issued, just aged. A really nice artifact.

    EXTREMELY RARE CONFEDERATE SERVICE MEDAL.
    EXTREMELY RARE CONFEDERATE SERVICE MEDAL.

    EXTREMELY RARE CONFEDERATE SERVICE MEDAL.

    This is nothing short of a spectacular, exquisite fabrication of a presentation medal. It was presented to Captain Frank Rice, Chief Surgeon of Cheatham's Division, Army of Tennessee, CSA. This is only the third Civil War Medal I have ever bought and you can see why. I try to handle a wide variety of items in all price ranges but most ID tags, Corps Badges and Veterans Medals just haven't turned my key. I had to buy this one and I don't care if it sells or not. I always try to offer my goods at very fair prices and some actually below retail when I'm able. This is the best, and somebody's gonna have to pay for it or it's going right into my collection. Additionally, if any of you fine folks have world-class Civil War Medals or Corps Badges that you are considering parting with, I'm interested in possibly buying similar items if they are super quality. This one appears to be of solid gold, pinkish in color that I presume is a patina of a copper alloy, maybe 18k. 60 rays in the sunburst, the medal is affixed to a ribbon that has aged but shows little wear. It is accompanied by a CDV of Rice with a Tennessee back-mark. Rice served with with the 15th Tennessee, which was merged with the 37th in '63 and then consolidated with the 4th just days before the wars end. I don't have all of his records yet, but if he was at Franklin, sadly, he was a very busy man. The 15th Infantry Regiment was organized at Jackson, Tennessee, in June, 1861. After fighting at Belmont, Shiloh, and Perryville it was consolidated with the 37th Regiment. It was active at Hoover's Gap, then participated in the campaigns of the army from Chickamauga to Missionary Ridge to Atlanta and then to the battles of Franklin and Nashville. Only a scant handful of original members of the 15th were surrendered and paroled at Greensboro, North Carolina April 25, 1865.
