M-1849 COLT POCKET REVOLVER - For those that
like excavated weapons, this is a gem.  Serial Number is
128925 which has this  as manufactured in 1856. Only
know that it was recovered in North Carolina. There are
no rounds left in this pistol and was dropped at half cock
no doubt in the heat of battle and remained for over a
hundred years. Amazingly the loading lever spring is still
intact.

RARE BREAK-AWAY STIRRUP - Rarely are these seen,
the break-away stirrup. These were meant to spring as this
one has allowing the boot of the rider to be freed so as not
to drag the rider, of course with the probability of great
injury. Recovered from Gettysburg in the early 70's it is in
very good, sound condition.

JAMES TYPE I ARTILLERY SHELL - Nice dug James shell
with the lead sabot still intact (only a crack in the lead on one
spot) and checkered evidence of the canvas covering (which is
gone). Fuze insert is included - brass cap will unscrew as shown
to expose the insert.  Nice shell for the price. (Of course the
shell is deactivated).

REMINGTON REVOLVER - Recovery site unknown but
was obtained from the GAR hall in Jackson, Michigan.,
Heavily pitted, dropped at full cock and has three rounds
remaining in cylinder. Loading lever had been jarred from
the fixed position probably when dropped and is rusted solid
in that position. Inspectors mark still visible on brass
trigger guard. Interesting relic lost in the heat of battle.
