Firearms (Edged Weapons follows further down)

No more firearms available...see below for a few related arms items


1F  - ORIGINAL CIVIL WAR MUSKET PRIMERS PERCUSSION CAPS FOR SHARPS+  Found this bag of 12 original Civil War percussion caps in Dale's desk, while cleaning out things.  He obviously believed they are real, and wrote "PELLET PRIMERS (SHARPS+) + MUSKET CAPS ORIG!" on the plastic bag.  If he wasn't sure they were original, he wouldn't have written that on the bag.  At the same time, he also kept a couple bags full of repro items as reference material that he continually acquired, to help him stay current what was out there in the growing market of reproductions (over 40-50 years). He knew Civil War stuff for nearly 50 years, and so I will pass these on for sale with all confidence.  $20

2F  -  AK-47 MAGAZINES  Found all these in a stash of Dale's gun related parts.  Only one is marked on the bottom "Made in China"; others are unmarked.  Two has a slightly different pattern at one end, and a slightly different bullet entry, otherwise I believe they are all the same magazines. Have a total of nine.   Each...$15

3F  -  7.62mm STRIPPER CLIPS IN UNOPENED BAG WITH EXTRA INSIDE  This package contains a green web type pouch with the words "NATO 7.62 MM / BALL M80 / 5RD CLIPS / LC 12588".  Because the bag is unopened, I think I can see 12 clips (most inside one cardboard sleeve shown in photo), 6 cardboard sleeves, 1 other metal device, and the green web pouch with those words.  $10

4F  -  M1 CARBINE MAGAZINE BELT POUCH  Shows use.  Found in a stash of Dale's gun related parts.  U.S. on front flap.  Among all the writing inside the flap, there is a stamped date of 1943.  $25

5F  -  1911 .45 CALIBER MAGAZINE BELT POUCH  Found in a stash of Dale's gun related parts. Very nice condition.  U.S. on front flap.  Stamped "HOFF 1943" on the back.  Looks unused, but has definite patina of age.  $30

6F  -  BLACK LEATHER M15 MAGAZINE PISTOL POUCH  Found a nice set as reference on Rock Island Auction's website, so I could identify this.  I think it's the same and they list it as a general officer's, fairly late age. The info on back reads "US DSA100-69-C-0049".  Needs some black polish, otherwise it's solid. Found in a stash of Dale's gun related parts. $15

7F  -  VINTAGE LEE RELOADER TOOL KIT FOR 9mm LUGER   This was Dale's, copyright 1974.  Complete.  Some rubbing to box.  $25

8F  -  VINTAGE LEE RELOADER TOOL KIT FOR .357 MAGNUM   This was Dale's, copyright 1974.  Complete.  Some rubbing to box.  $25

9F  -  2005 THE GUN REPORT 50 Years, Volume 51, Number 1 1955-2005  50 year edition of this very popular, and long running publication.  Very good condition overall, no dog ears, no marks or highlighting.  "The GUN REPORT Volume 51, Number 1  June 2005 / $10.00"  -  "50 Years Serving Firearm Collectors Around the World 1955-2005".  $5

Edged Weapons

PLEASE NOTE:  The items in this section represent the final sword and knife offerings.  I will NOT be acquiring any more edged weapons.

There is one G.I. knife left in this section and has been reduced to cost.  Please check below and take advantage of a great buy.

1EW  -  VERY TYPICAL WWII G.I.-MADE FIGHTING KNIFE  Another way of saying shop-knife…which were turned out in great variety and profusion by G.I.’s who had access to any kind of machine or repair shop.  Knife is 10¾” long.  Heavy grip is made of typical stacked washers made of a maroon red phenolic, interspersed with brass washer, and steel pommel cap.  Thick brass counterguard.  Nicely shaped, constant thickness steel blade.  Blade bright, clean, showing some light, original marks from its shaping.  Original dark brown sheath showing nice patina of age.  Strong and flexible.  Few rubs.  Face has a punch mark border line around large, less than professional initials scratched in.  Classic G.I.   $85

2EW  -  VERY EARLY AMERICAN OFFICER'S BIRD HEAD HANGER C.1750-75  We sold this sword many years ago from our print catalog.  The owner was selling his collection, and Dale thought so much of it, that we purchased it back probably 4-5 years ago now.  I found the description Dale originally wrote, and it follows:  "One of the earliest portrayals of a bird head pommel I've seen, which ultimately evolved into the finely sculpted eagle head of the 19th Century.  This however is more closely allied to the primitive lion heads, and in character looks more parrot-like.  Hilt is solid cast brass with simple incised line down the grip. Simple stirrup knucklebow with incipient langets.  Classic 24" hanger blade, single edged, lightly curved, with single fuller along the top.  Unmarked.  Dark mottled grey with average wear.  One of the very first examples where an animal head appears on the pommel.  Crudity and primitiveness of designs strongly suggest American origins.  Very nice Rev War officers sword."  $2,150

3EW  -  GORGEOUS C.1850-60 SHEFFIELD EAGLE FOLDING KNIFE  I believe this is silver, and is beautifully made.  Both sides of the grip have a spread eagle over shield, and decorative panels left and right.  Two smaller pieces of what I believe is horn, and abalone flank the eagle, this on both sides of the grip.  Overall 9 1/2" long.  The main blade is 4 3/8" long, and is stamped with "W M NICHOLSON SYCAMORE ST SHEFFIELD".  The short blade is 2 5/8" long, with the same stampings.  There is some minor pitting, and the large blade shows signs of being sharpened, and not done so well.  Generally, the grip pieces are in beautiful condition, showing light use/handling.  Beautiful piece Dale had packed away for decades.  $1,975
