1860 Light Cavalry Sabre US marked blade

The 1860 Light Cavalry sabre was the standard sword for the Union Soldier on horse back. It was an improvement in design, even though it looks much like the old 1840 "wrist Breaker" it replaced. The brass hilt has a lovely patina with a clean blade, with normal dulling to its surface. The grip is complete and the blade is tight to the hilt and suffer three minor chips or dents as seen in the pic provided. The scabbard has both rings, but has developed a light brown patina to its surface. An overall solid example of the pattern and well marked. Markings read on one side the manufacturer Mansfield and Lamb and the other US indicating military service, DFC for the inspector and manufacture date of 1862, a date many collectors prefer because its early enough to have been used during the major battles of 1862 to 1865.

Antique Model 1878 Colt Frontier 6 Shooter (578)

Here we offer an antique Double Action (DA) .45 Cal Colt Frontier Pistol typical of the type used in the wild west by cowboys, lawmen and the like in the late 1870s early 80s. A beautiful original finish with excellent checkered wood grips. Very little wear to the body, 90% bluing, still retaining its lanyard loop. There is some damage on the shoulder in front of the trigger guard both sides and some scratches around the screws. Looks like someone put the pistol in a vice to try to repair it and did some minor damage. As good as it looks overall, there are issues, these pistols are notorious for breaking mechanically due to wear and tear. This example is broken and although the hammer can half and full cock, its double action is dysfunctional, slipping on every trigger pull. These pistols are almost impossible to repair due to a lack of parts availability. This is a model that did not have a long life on the market. It is price accordingly.

This is an antique hand gun and does not require a PAL. This particular model is considered an antique black powder cartridge hand gun and is not designed to fire modern ammunition.

Antique WM Marston Model 1864 - 3 Barrel Deringer

An interesting antique hand gun with a complex rim firing mechanism. Nice mustard coloured frame with fine wood grip. Short barrels are rifled, but for about 1" of its length. The mechanism on this example is broken, the hammer essentially climbs from one chamber to the next each time the hammer is cocked. This action no longer functions and the hammer does not cock. A 1 for condition, it makes a nice display piece as a unique type of antique hand gun you might find in a gamblers pocket on a river boat on the Mississippi in the 1870s. Priced accordingly.

This is an antique rim fire hand gun and does not require a PAL.
