  1. I never fired a shot gun. Years ago when a relative died, I inherited the right to choose my choice of my father-in-law's shoulder weapons. They told me that the shot gun was a choice gun in fine co...
  2. You fired originals? I did fire one original a few times, but after that only repros. I was afraid of damaging originals. Muskets were fun to fire, but the repro I had of a .44 Colt army revolver wa...
  3. Thank you, blunderbuss2. I used to fire the repro muskets also, and I expect that you are right.
  4. I am from the same part of the country as the photo was found in. It looks like a typical older school to me. I went to a Junior High, and a High school in the 60s which looked very similar. If it i...
  5. bobby725, Thank you for the information! I have a feeling that I will learn more about what "PV" stands for, one way or the other. tintyper
  6. Scott, No this is not on a post card, it is a 5" X 7" photo attached to an early dark mat. Mat was cut so it would fit in a frame. Marked "Wintermate, The Star Studio, Newton, N.J.".
  7. The Civil War was unbelievably bloody. Terrible for the casualties on both sides. The lives ruined, or cut short. Heroism was common on both sides. Lincoln said something not too long before his as...
  8. Thank you, ho2cultcha. I expect that was Confederate money. During that war gold was the ultimate money. Federal greenbacks were much less desired, with Confederate money even less desirable! Today...
  9. Yes, I toured the Ike home several years ago, and it is true. With his military background he enjoyed living on the largest battlefield in the western hemisphere. He and his wife lived there from 196...
  10. Thank you, Thomas! My late father loved the great home run hitters, the ones who could hit a ball 400 feet or so! Hank Aaron, Mantle, Killebrew, Frank Howard etc. Some more since he passed. I fee...
  11. Yes, it's true.
  12. Thank you, Toyrebel, and Newfld! Baseball was great then, and it is still great today. In the 2017 season my daughter and I went to see a local game in DC, and we sat in the bleachers for the firs...
  13. Thank you, Watchsearcher, for the thoughtful comments.
  14. I have collected, and sometimes dealt in CW hard images since 1982, and I can say that you have outstanding taste to show this image!
  15. Thank you, fortapache! I expect that you are right.Your father served there? Mine was in the Army Reserves, and was called up for a short time, but did not leave the country then.But he had already l...
  16. Thank you for serving, Dizzydave.
  17. Nice memories, Newfld. My wife went with her relatives, and they treasure the memories of it also.
  18. Scott, No, this is an unmarked CDV, and I uploaded another CDV view from Fortress Monroe here some time ago. I wanted to show this one also. No more outdoor views like this, but dozens of personal ...
  19. Blunderbuss2, No, I wrote too quickly, and put "Eagle" instead of "Horn". Thanks for catching that!
  20. The statue is that of Union general Gouverneor K. Warren, who operated an important signal station on the hill.
  21. 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.
  22. 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...
  23. 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...
  24. 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...
  25. 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...
  26. 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...
  27. 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...
  28. Only know what I was told. Sorry if it was not accurate.
  29. 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...
  30. Thank you, blunderbuss2! I am not knowledgeable about artillery items, but what you say sounds reasonable to me. Any other comments?
  31. 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.
  32. 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.
  33. 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...
  34. 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.
  35. I like this, because I wore one just like this decades ago, when I was a scout.
  36. 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.
  37. Scott, I got to take more photos, and tried to answer your comment. Thank you, tintyper.
  38. Whoa, never saw any inscription like this!
  39. 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,...
  40. Thank you, and the best thing is that I am told that regimental badges from this unit are seldom seen.
  41. 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.
  42. 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...
  43. Now I understand how these were worn. Thank you for posting!
  44. 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 ...
  45. 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.
  46. Yes, that is what I was told. His brother was Dwayne Hickman, and they were both good as actors.
  47. Yes, that is right. The Grey Ghost was on Saturday nights, late for a kid to watch, but I loved it.
  48. Yes, SpiritBear, that is a picture of a "bull's eye" canteen, and it sounds like what you have is also a nice collectible.
  49. 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...
  50. 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...
