SCARLET RED WOOL FLANNEL C.S. BATTLE SHIRT. #BC8722. Made by the Engineer’s Sutler this scarlet red wool flannel shirt fits up to a 44" chest. It was worn one time for a 1st Manassas event then laundered and stored. It does have some light marks on the body (at the waistline probably from accoutrements) and around the cuffs. Some of these marks were too light to come out in the photos but two we were able to get pictures of (see photos). However, these marks should dry clean out if you’re so inclined. Nonetheless, this shirt remains in GREAT condition all round and as mentioned it was laundered before being stored. Featured is a falling collar, 3-button front plaquet, 1-button collar, two front buttoning patch style pockets (6” wide x 6.5” tall), underarm gussets, side seam splits w/ small reinforcement patches, 1-button gathered cuffs plus bone buttons throughout. This shirt is entirely machine sewn including button holes.

Here are some additional measurements. Please check these against your own respective sizes to insure this shirt will fit you satisfactorily.

COLLAR: 19” (19” on the shirt so will fit an 18” neck comfortably)
SLEEVE: 35” (center of the back of the neck, over the shoulder and down to the bottom of the cuff)
FRONT LENGTH: 30“ (base of collar to front bottom hem)
BACK LENGTH: 31.5” (base of collar in the back to rear bottom hem)
WAIST: will fit up to a 46” waistline comfortably

Has some minor wrinkles and scrapes on the leather elements but NO rips, tears, gouges, repairs or any damage of that type whatsoever. The buckles and brass hardware are in fine condition and the bag plus it’s black finish are all in great shape. A little finish loss on some of the corners but certainly not bad by any means. The owners initials and unit are written on the back of the harness and again on the inner bag. However, this poses no problem as I see it. A little light oiling of the leather elements would probably help but certainly not mandatory by any means. A nice pack ready to go back into service.

WHITE COTTON DUCK HAVERSACK. #BC8724. Made from a white cotton drill this entirely hand sewn haversack has seen service and has some stains and marks on it.

This addition can be removed and the end of the original strap resewn to the bag thus shortening the strap to 35” (which was probably its original length). The bag itself measures approximately 12“ wide x 12“ tall. Some of the raw seams inside the bag are fraying a bit and we have a photo showing that. Maker unknown (privately made or sutler row).

U.S. SOFTPACK w/ WOODEN FRAME: #BC2765. This C & D Jarnagin made 1853/1855 U.S. double bag knapsack has been to the field and has some scattered light surface wear to the painted finish. The corners seem to have the most of it (see photo) but these corners can be easily touched up with a little flat black paint. Other than that this pack is in very solid condition all around, all the hardware is present and in great shape and all stitches are tight on both the bag as well as on all the leather pieces. Accompanying this bag is a tongue-and-groove wooden frame which was carefully disassembled by the owner when he sent the pack in. The small brass nails are still present in the wood so this frame should be able to be reassembled without any problems. There was a wooden stick accompanying the frame pieces. This stick goes in the straps on top of the pack when there is a blanket roll or greatcoat rolled and strapped on top. It helps the roll to stay in place and ride correctly. This stick will of course accompany the pack and the new owner can decide if he want to use it or not.

Now we need to mention that one of the front cross straps is missing. The brass "Chicago screw" type retainer is present but the leather strap itself is missing. Also, one of the small inner bag leather tabs has the end piece missing. Please see photo set #3 for this. Meantime, there is a blue striped cotton ticking compartment divider that has some light stains on it but certainly no problems beyond that. All the buckles and brass hardware are in great shape.

ENFIELD CARTRIDGE BOX: Sale Pending  #BC1656. Just the box itself - no shoulder belt (“sling”). This box is brand new never used and just old sutler shelf stock. It is in excellent condition w/ just a couple very minor rubs here and there from storage. Black leather w/ a wide white leather tab for closing. This natural colored leather tab has a white coating and a portion of it has rubbed off at some point. Still the box is in great physical condition. Brass finial plus two medium sized black roller buckles on the bottom. No tins. No stamps. Just to mention it the sling on consignment below (#BC8873) will NOT fit this box (it's a little too wide). You would need a sling that measures no wider than 2 1/2" to fit through the back loops on the back of the box. The bottom portion of the shoulder belt below (#BC8873) could be trimmed down to fit but it will not fit as currently cut.

Both bales though (the ends or tips that go into the box buckles to adjust length) have been re-cut - most likely in an effort to shorten the sling length a little. This work was done by someone at home some point and is a little rough; still works but just a little rough looking (see photos when posted).

CARTRIDGE BOX w/ SLING. #BC2827. Made by C & D Jarnagin this black leather .58 caliber box has seen service but remains in solid serviceable condition. A little cleaning should step it up a bit. No plates and never had any. Comes with shoulder belt (sling) and has a set of tins. The tins are pretty tight in the box which is why we could not pull ’em out for a full photo. This box is stamped on the lower front corner “J R MYERS, US ORD DEPT INSPECTOR”. This may (??) have been added at some point in the boxs travels as we did not find this particular stamp among those used by C & D. A nice touch nonetheless. Accompanying this cartridge box is a well used but solid and intact black leather cap box. This cap box is NOT a Jarnagin product and probably from sutler row.

CAVALRY CARBINE BOX. #BC2349 The seller informs us that this 1860 .54 caliber carbine cartridge box was privately made. This box has seen a little service but remains in really nice overall condition. It does have some light scraps on the body and the rear belt loops but nothing all that bad. All the stitching is intact plus the copper rivets have a solid hold on the rear belt loops. Has a brass finial for closing the cover. On the bottom are two steel roller buckles for slinging this box on a shoulder belt (if desired). These buckles are pretty clean (no heavy rust or corrosion) but do have a patina. Inside we have an implement pouch and in the main compartment is a wooden block drilled to hold twenty cartridges. The wooden block is in great condition. No stamps on this box. This is an older reproduction and could benefit from a little leather preservative (although not mandatory).

THis is a modern belt (meaning not one made specifically as a repro for Civil War reenacting). Still, it’s a wide flat black leather belt and in that regard works just fine. This belt has been service in both a U.S. and well as a C.S. application based on the two styles of adjustment holes present - single row & double row. For U.S. or C.S. OVAL STYLE PLATES this belt – once a plate has been attached – has a maximum (outward) working length of right around 34” based on the SINGLE adjustment holes. For A GEORGIA FRAME style buckle the maximum (outward) working length - once a plate has been attached - is right around 37” using the double row of holes. Need to mention that the two points or tines of the Georgia Frame have to have a 13/16" center-to-center measurement (some GA frames vary slightly on this) to match the holes punched in this belt (which have a 13/16" center-to-center measurement). Finally, there is a leather retainer loop from this belts “modern” service” still present. However, it can be removed if desired.

NAVAL CUTLASS SCABBARD: #BC1652. Maker unknown on this 1860/61 Naval cutlass scabbard but undoubtedly an import. Owner has an Enfield bayonet and scabbard installed for a few hours but them removed it. Other than for that this item has never really been used - and certainly never to the field. Black leather with black stitching. Measures 10” long x 3 3/4” at the widest part. No stamps or marks.

SNARE DRUM. #BC5584. Made by the Florance Drum Company of Honesdale, Pennsylvania this drum has been to the field and has some scratches and wear on the shell and hoops. There are also some light dirt marks on the rope elements. With a little care and a small sudsy brush (like an old toothbrush) most of this should clean off. This drum is very solid though and all parts intact. Please check out all the photos closely for the best idea of this drums condition. This drum measures 14 3/4” tall x 13 3/4“ in diameter and features a golden oak shell, red hoops, dark brown ears and a Civil War screw style strainer. It is NOT embellished with any hand-painted motifs nor does it have any tack designs. The head is "Fiberskyn” for better stability in high humidity and bad weather. Take a close look at the photo showing this drum head as it does have some “wrinkles” in it. I’m not a musician so my descriptive terminology for this is way off I’m sure. The bottom clear element has some dings in it but it remains solid and intact. The ropes are synthetic (to also avoid problems during climate change) but are hard to tell from natural fiber one unless examined very closely. There is a small carrying device attached to the side but the drum does NOT come with a sling nor drum sticks (see listing below for STICKS). This item will ship via UPS and be fully insured for the sale price.

LEATHER CANTEEN SLING. OFFICER/CIVILIAN. #JM6115. This item came with an officers kit but can easily be used in a civilian impression as well. So what we have here are two brown leather pieces each approximately 34” long (and just a touch shy of 1/8” thick), joined together by two double headed brass studs to make one continuous loop. This loop measures 3/4” wide x 68” long. One leather piece has a 16” long slit in the center. In excellent condition and does not appear to have ever been used. Maker unknown.

NCO BALDRIC. #JM5876. This baldric was originally made by F. Burgess & Co. It has been used and has a few minor dings and scuffs but remains in really nice condition all round. Comes with a circular breast plate which has a mild patina to it. This plate should clean up very nicely though with a little brass polish. Stamped with the Burgess maker stamp plus a repro period Ordnance department inspectors stamp. While certainly not mandatory this baldric could benefit from a little leather conditioner as it’s been in storage for a while. Still, a real nice item as would be expected from Burgess.

This item will ship STANDARD POST to keep shipping costs down.

BUFF SABER BELT w/ CIRCULAR U.S. PLATE. #JM1550. Custom made by Dell’s Leatherworks this 1 5/8” wide Dragoon style buff leather saber belt can be used in an early war CS. impression as well. The plate can be changed of course but that would be the job for someone with leather sewing tools and skills. But as it is with the circular US plate, it can work for US or CS early war.

This saber belt was used a few times then went into storage and has remained there for a while. The brass pieces have a patina from age but should polish up nicely (if you’re so inclined) with a little time spent on the job. This belt measures in with a 49” waist (counting the plate).There is only one hole in the belt for the adjustment hook (given that this belt was custom made and fitted to the current owner). However, more holes can be punched in (by the new owner) for a wide range of adjustment. The sabers hangers are adjustable via brass center bar buckles but there are no snap swivels on the ends (probably came that way by design). There is no “over-the-shoulder” (Sam Browne) strap (again, probably by design).

U.S. BLACK LEATHER BELT w/ SNY PLATE: #MM6924. This 1 7/8" wide black leather belt is for a small waisted individual. Given it's current range of adjustment we have a minimum adjusted length of 27" and a maximum adjusted length of 32". As with all belts please remember this is OVER your coat. One additional hole can be added to increase the adjustable length by 1" (max.) Of course more holes can be added to decrease the length for a young lad. This belt has seen a little light use at a few living history encampments and thus remains in overall EXCELLENT! physical condition. Belt is stamped with the "HARTZELL, Ord, Dept." inspector's stamp. Attached to the belt is a lead filled oval SNY plate and a brass keeper.

BLACK LEATHER SABER FROG. #NC7822. This black leather saber frock is in generally nice shape overall but there is a small area at the top that has a slight scalloped cut to it. The owner did this to evidently get a better fit on the saber hilt. Still in very solid serviceable condition.

TELESCOPE. #NC1699. This nickel plated collapsible telescope has been used but remains in very good condition. The lenses are in great shape but it is hard to make a power determination (2x, 5x, 10x etc.). It is a relatively low powered scope compared to modern telescopes but certainly enough magnification to see who’s on the skirmish line across from you. :-) Measures 15 ¼” long when fully extended and 6” when collapsed for storage. Comes with front lens cap but no bag or carrying case.

LARGE BLADE KNIFE w/ SCABBARD #BC7726. As sold through Orchard Hill Cutlery this is their "Rio Grande" knife (#FB-017). This knife has been carried but never sharpened. Steel blade w/ riveted dark color wooden handle. The scabbard is black leather w/ a brass throat & steel belt clip. The scabbard has some very minor scuffs / rubs but no real problems whatsoever. There is a small area on the blade by the handle that has some very light surface rust which chould clean up nicely. Along the top edge of the blade are some dings and scrapes (see second photo set). Most of these can probably be removed (or at least diminished) with some filing and/or surface grinding. We'll have some measurements up shortly.
