This is the standard .58 Caliber Civil War cartridge box tin, which has been fitted with the wooden conversion block for use with the First Allin Conversion, M1865 Springifield .58 caliber rimfire rifle/cartridge. Hard to find and priced to sell. A photograph of this style conversion tin appears in the Johnson book, Civil War Cartridge boxes of the Union Infantryman. Price includes shipping.


Cavalry Spurs – $225.00

Pair of private purchase enlisted man’s cavalry spurs. Brass has nice mellow color. The rowels move freely. This is the style that has the “barb” that was inserted directly into the heel of the boot providing a very secure method of attachment. These are unmarked. This is an excellent pair.


Original Custer Painting – OFFER

Here is an undated and unsigned original painting of the General in full dress regalia less hat. Great detail including sword and knot, gauntlets, shoulder straps, red scarf, uniform, buttons, etc. This was painted on what appears to be a piece of barn wood or plank flooring. Image is framed less glass. Wood has been repaired; there is a vertical crack that runs top to bottom on the image. Repair only visible if you are standing very close to it. Colors are all excellent. This image is very similar in detail and style to the Marvin Pakula painting of Custer that appeared on the cover of Civil War Times Illustrated, December 1974. Approximate size is 15″w x 22″h.
