#MS-1-BL

Excavated section of a Confederate Richmond or Fayetteville "High Hump" Musket. Recovered from the Beaver Dam Creek area of the Gaines Mill Battlefield, a large portion of the wooden stock attached. No trigger guard, barrel bands or buttplate remains and the hammer is merely a shadow of what it once was. Approximately 19" in length, the piece shows great deterioration and rust to the wood and the metal, typical of an artifact which has lain underwater or in a wet environment for 150 years. A rare find and a wonderful relic of one of the bloodiest campaigns in American History........................$175

#MS-3-RE

Here is an excavated rare Civil War Artillery Cross Cannon hat insignia. It measures 2 inches by 1.25 inches in size and made of stamped brass. This is the type that you see worn on Civil War officer’s kepi hats. This item has a wonderful chocolate brown patina. The rear still has the solder points but the hooks are missing. The end bubble of the top cannon barrel is missing but it is only noticed upon close inspection and is mentioned for exactness. You very seldom get a chance at one of these pins that display this well. This relic was recovered near Chancellorsville, Va………………………$260
