Large Albumin of an 1800’s Fire Department with Hose Cart. This albumin shows 18 firefighters in parade dress posing as if pulling this hose cart. One of them is carrying a speaking trumpet. They are all wearing bell caps with badge, parade bibbed shirt and parade leather belt. The firehouse is in the background. This photo came out of Indiana but it’s unknown as to who it is or what fire department it is. The albumin measures 8 X 10 inches but unfortunately it’s broken right in the middle (ouch!) and tape is holding it together on the back. Still a very interesting image!!! $125.00

This regiment was accepted by the State April 25, 1861; received its numerical designation May 7, 1861; was organized at Albany, and there mustered in the service of the United States for two years May 14, 1861.

The three years' men of the 9th Infantry, and sufficient drafted men were assigned to the battalion, and the latter brought up to a regimental standard.

This pin is smaller than a quarter as you can see in the pics. It's very nicely engraved and looks to be thin silver plating over brass. The rear attachment is typical of Civil War and later work. This is a nice piece! For this piece $595.00

Here we have an old antler handled pocketknife from before and during the American Civil War. It's looks earlier but the maker is Henry Boker who was a German manufacturer who imported swords to his relative Herman for use during the American Civil War. This is a large knife measureing over 6 inches long closed and 10 inches long with blade extended. The ricasso is marked with HENRY BOKER'S IMPROVED CUTLERY marks. The piece of the bolster that locks the blade in place is broken away so the blade will not lock or hold straight in place. Also there is a corkscrew on this piece but it's frozen in place. This piece has alot of character. Just look at the pics! $175.00

Here we have a model 1840 Heavy Cavalry Saber that has been cut down and turned into a fighting knife. This piece is a heavy model and is missing the sheath. The leather wrapped wooden grip has been replaced with leather washers. The entire piece measures 13 1/2 inches long with a 8 1/2 inch long blade. There are no markings on the ricasso that I can make out. The pommel is typical of Civil War heavy Cavalry Sabers. The front guard has been cut down trememdously so that it's just a small hand guard now. The blade was heavily sharpened and is still so. The blade has also been thinned down or perhaps this is a different blade and not a saber blade. Take a look at the pics. Nasty wicked knife. $225.00

Here is a Civil War Veterans Cane! The cane is about 34 inches long with a seperate carved piece at the top of a Civil War Soldier in Kepi and the bottom has an old brass thimble attached there. The head is intricately carved and even has beady little black glass eyes (one missing now) and a big moustache being topped off with his kepi. The shaft is a different wood being a hard wood with lots of age splits along the grain in it so I think that it's probably briar wood. This piece is really nicely done and looks pretty neat!!! For this piece $195.00

Here we have a moderately medium to large Post sized 45 Star Flag that is made from a somewhat coarser type muslin material made to fly outside. This flag measures about 4 feet by 8 feet long. This flag is machine stitched with stars being 2 1/2 inches across the points and the strips are 3 inches wide. There is some minor to moderate mothing on it in a couple of areas but the flag is strong and would still display well. There is also a couple of small areas where there is a red type stain on it, including one star, but not overwelming to the eye. This Flag with 45 stars was adopted in 1896 with the inclusion of Utah into the United States. The 45 star flag lasted until 1908 when it was replaced with the 46 star flag. The colors are bright on this piece. This was the flag used during the Spanish American War of 1898. This flag has on the hoist the name of H.J.Hair and I believe that he was from Lafayette, Indiana. For this good old Flag $495.00

Here we have a like sized 46 Star Flag that is in better condition than the one above. This one is in very good condition and has no mothing on it or tears. This one is marked 4 X 8 as well as STANDARD in ink on the hoist end. The colors are good while the white stripes have a little browning to them. This flag is the coarser linen style for flying outside. The entire flag is machine stitched with stars measuring about 2 1/2 inches across and the stripes measuring about 3 inches across. There is a little tear on the fly end where a string was attached to display this piece on a wall. This 46 star flag was made official for Oklahoma entering the union on July 4, 1908 to July 4th, 1912 totaling 4 Years and 52 Days. Theodore Roosevelt (1901-1909) and William H. Taft (1909-1913) served as President under the 46 star flag. This one is in grat shape! For this one $250.00

This is a very rare soft leather belt from The Gold Rush ERA thru the Civil War Era. This belt was ment to be worn close to the body to hide gold dust, nuggets , money, or valuable papers . This belt has the flap with original button covering the pocket opening and secured by a drawstring which is missing . The belt measures approximately 39 inches long overall. One single long pocket runs the length of the belt unlike most money belts with seperate pockets for coins which makes me think that it is mostly for coins or nuggets as anything else would be a little difficult to remove if it slipped clear to the end of the belt. The stitching is very nicely done and there is some initials stitched into it as well. There is a GH in white leather stitching and a T in red leather stitching. We do not know the meaning of the initials. The cover that closes over the pocket opening has a small leather knot that goes through a hole in the flap for a closure kind of like a button. The leather is soft, smooth, and beautiful natural light brown color. We feel that it is made of pig skin. There is embossing on the leather pouch for it's entire length not including the belt strap or buckle ends. The buckle is brass while the buckle tounge is iron. The embossing is light now due to age but still visible. This belt is in great shape for its age and no stitching is lacking. If you collect Gold Rush era items then this is a must! For this piece $250.00
