MASSACHUSETTS ARMS CO. PISTOL FLASK - Approx. 4 1/4" in

1837 AMES PEACE FLASK - FIRST YEAR OF PRODUCTION
- Can't get any earlier on these and this one has been through a
lot based on the amount of wear. Flask had been cleaned long
ago but now has a mellow patina. As mentioned before, quite a
bit of wear on all the high relief areas, only one or two very small
dents (negligable) and showing a small amount of solder on the
bottom seam (perhaps an old repair). Inspectors stamp 'WS' on 1
side next to eagle's head and 'N.P. Ames' "1837' on the top. Has
original suspension rings and charger spring works. Early
enough for Mexican War use.

CONFEDERATE COOK & BROTHER NAVAL
CUTLASS
- Good honest marked Confederate naval
cutlass. Marked with the Cook & Brother stamp on the
inside of the guard, crude cast guard & grip without the
dowels through the grip & blade tang (unlike the US
M-1841 cutlass which had these, the CS version only had
the peened tang at the pommel). The quillion has been
broken and repaired as can be seen in photos. Rear of
guard is marked with the number '12'. Blade shows age
and some light pitting.
$ 7250.

IMPORT EAGLE PISTOL POWDER FLASK - (R-777 in Riling's
Powder Flask Book). Rarely seen these eagle flasks were produced in
Birmingham and made of light weight white metal (zinc ?) to keep
costs down for competitive sales in the US. Due to the cheap
construction few have survived in good condition and as Riling put it
back in the 1950's "in fine condition have now become good collector
property".  This flask shows some wear on high relief areas such as
the eagle's shield. There are no breaks in the seam and the charger
lever functions.

FULL PACK OF 10 ENFIELD CARTRIDGES - Very
nice full pack of Enfield cartridges. Paper wrap correctly
marked and dated 1860. Inside are 10 complete Enfield
cartridges in very good condition and still retains the
paper that separates the cartridges. One cartridge is
leaking black powder granuals but not much. Cartridges
alone are worth the price.
