  1. It does look like Washington. I am thinking this may have been done for the country's centennial in 1876. Perhaps.
  2. Blunderbuss2, No, I wrote too quickly, and put "Eagle" instead of "Horn". Thanks for catching that!
  3. The statue is that of Union general Gouverneor K. Warren, who operated an important signal station on the hill.
  4. What are the veterans thinking? I think that some of them are grateful to their lucky stars, or to the deity that they survived America's bloodiest conflict.
  5. Thanks billretirecoll, I was a relic "digger", with metal detector, long ago. One day I found, at the battle of the Wilderness, a bullet with teeth marks on it. It had been raining that week, and...
  6. OK, I have researched this unusual piece, and it certainly looks like Scott was correct in his assessment of this unusual item! The odd brass piece shown to the right of the cartridge box plate, c...
  7. Scott, Thank you for commenting. I expect it is post-war. Something perhaps done by the off-spring of the veteran who brought these items back. Thanks for saying that it may have been part of a sig...
  8. This is a good comment. You can't see how large the horse shoe is, but it is about 5 1/2" long, and about 4 3/4" wide. My late-uncle used to have mules on his farm, and the shoes they used were smal...
  9. The 12 Lb. solid cannonball that I mentioned had a seam, but it was not a pronounced one. Not highly raised at all, and so perhaps this made little difference. Besides the CS produced items were sur...
  10. I owned a 12 Lb. solid Civil War cannonball with the seem around the middle, and it came from a leading dealer who said it was CS made. I have seen many pieces of grape also with seems around the mi...
  11. Only know what I was told. Sorry if it was not accurate.
  12. Thank you, fortapache. Do you see, in my photo, the line mold mark in the piece of grape on the right? This, I am told, indicates a more crude manufacture, and in this case it indicates Southern m...
  13. Thank you, blunderbuss2! I am not knowledgeable about artillery items, but what you say sounds reasonable to me. Any other comments?
  14. The chips on the hat are not a big deal, at least if it is just the paint that is chipped off. East to fix.
  15. Perhaps some of the current styles that people wear in 2017 would also appear odd and uncomfortable if shown to people of the year 1900.
  16. The rare thing about this image is the corps badge on the veteran's coat! Not seen much on cabinet cards. Not on ones I have seen anyway! Also to have been taken by a Gettysburg photographer just ma...
  17. Nice set. When I was a kid I had one version of this with "Rusty" and "Rin Tin Tin" figures in the set. These were nice sets, and it is so good to have the original box. Thanks for posting.
  18. I like this, because I wore one just like this decades ago, when I was a scout.
  19. Thank you, Scott. I know some about images, but the badge I know little about it, and I may not be surprised to hear that it is good, but I am happy.
  20. Scott, I got to take more photos, and tried to answer your comment. Thank you, tintyper.
  21. Whoa, never saw any inscription like this!
  22. Yes, some do still look tough enough to fight. In 1913 was the greatest veteran get together ever of CW veterans, the 1913 Gettysburg reunion with many hundreds of vets there from both sides. Once,...
  23. Thank you, and the best thing is that I am told that regimental badges from this unit are seldom seen.
  24. I knew all these relatives, although that was many years after this photo was taken. They all married, and all had children, and grandchildren. I liked all three of them.
  25. My relative was in a support group, but we met a former member of the Marauders years ago at the WWII memorial in DC, where the monument mentioned the China-Burma-India department. He was in the bl...
  26. Now I understand how these were worn. Thank you for posting!
  27. Years ago I read my first L.C. Douglas book, and I loved it and in time I haunted used book stores and yard sales for more. I read about ten of them and his books are quite good. Still have them in ...
  28. Thank you, Thomas! Thank you nutsabotas6! It is a tootsie toy, and so is the old fashioned tank about four inches to the left of it. These were things that were toys of mine when I was a kid.
  29. Yes, that is what I was told. His brother was Dwayne Hickman, and they were both good as actors.
  30. Yes, that is right. The Grey Ghost was on Saturday nights, late for a kid to watch, but I loved it.
  31. Yes, SpiritBear, that is a picture of a "bull's eye" canteen, and it sounds like what you have is also a nice collectible.
  32. When a kid, I liked Nick Adam's show, and The Lone Ranger, and The Roy Rogers Show, as well as others that I can not remember right now! Glad that there are others out there as old as myself who ar...
  33. So do I. Nothing is better. This one had a nice hand. John
  34. My late father got to shake Walter Johnson's hand back in the 1930s, he told me, when Walter was the manager of the Senators. Dad went to a game back then, and stood in line to shake hands. To me it...
  35. Thank you, Manikin, and Scott. This old photo was found in the memorabilia of a long deceased former comrade of the colonel.
  36. OK, I added a photo of the comment found on this officer's CDV, on the back. Hope you can see it.
  37. Thank you, PCC. This was found written on the back of his CDV. I don't have a guess as to what it referred to!
  38. Oh, I see no that RRP already gave you the manufacture date of 1912. Sorry, my eyes are not great and I did not see that. He is totally correct. A case would be made separately from the watch, and s...
  39. Did you get the date of the watch from the serial number? Post the serial number, and I will look the date up in my book, or someone else will. tintyper
  40. Well, it is a 48 star flag so that helps to date it some. This appears to be an older 48 star flag, so maybe 1912-1930? Some kind of local skit? What do you all think?
  41. Thanks for posting. I have never seen a photo taken by this photographer, although I don't live near Ohio. I will look for them.
  42. Thank you. I will probably need much luck!
  43. Scott, Yes. that is very true. I am not ready to claim that this officer is the very one that I suspect he is, but I have more than just a resemblance to a photo to go on. The officer was noted ...
  44. Thanks, Scott. Yes, I read that they discovered that the gabled house backdrop was found to have been near Petersburg, Va. in an area which at one time was the camping ground of North Carolina troops...
  45. There may be a possible ID for the Captain of infantry. This was located at an estate sale in N.C. and so I started looking in Clarke's books which show many old likenesses of NC Civil War CS office...
  46. Thanks, Scott. The 13th Tennessee Cavalry(US) was issued Gallagers, and that is a possibility. Thanks, blunderbuss2. The previous owner also believed it to be a Gallager. I can't see it on the c...
  47. No B/M. Yes, to me it looks like a 10, or something close to that. Hard to locate! John
  48. I know what you mean about those mini-balls. I used to see those online!
  49. Yes, Anthony mark. I wish it was a southern B/M.
  50. I was at a show a couple years ago, and there was one dealer that had three or four relics, very nice and original for sure. Written on each in pencil, was "Gettysburg", and a price of maybe about $...
