F1 Model 1861 Bridesburg Contract Rifle Musket, dated 1862
Attic Fresh Model 1861 manufactured by Alfred Jenks & Son of Bridesburg Machine Works. Nice chocolate brown attic patina, uncleaned and unaltered. The lock is mechanically perfect, the rear sight has broken leaves that have clearly been missing for a very long time. Clear VP Eagle stamp in barrel, date on top of the barrel is obscured by pitting. Bore is dark with rifling remaining. Stock is in nice condition with a sliver missing near the front barrel band. Clear cartouche under the top lock screw, and a faint cartouche on the bottom of the stock in front of the trigger guard. The front band spring is broken and has been for ages, it could easily be replaced but I've chosen to leave it as is. Nice original ramrod. This musket has a great untouched look and definitely saw some action.
F2 Smith & Wesson No. 2 Army .32 Rimfire Revolver, Civil War Serial Number
Excellent condition S&W No.2 revolver with a 6 inch barrel. Mechanically perfect with most of the original bluing intact. The serial number is well within the Civil War date range. This revolver was a popular sidearm for both officers and enlisted men for its size, durability, ease in loading, and reliability. Hard to find one in better condition.
