RARE, ORIGINAL FEDERAL ARTILLERY CANNNONEER'S MAKER-MARKED LEATHER HAVERSACK WITH SLING

Here is just one of the many implements utilized by U.S. artillery gun crews during the Civil War, this fine condition, factory-made leather device is a maker-marked Union gunner's haversack in very fine original condition. With the field piece in battery, this type haversack was worn by the No. #4 cannoneer and used as the medium to help prevent accidents while the artillery cartridges were being carried between the ammo magazine and the gun or piece on the line. The body and shoulder sling of this haversack are constructed of thick black bridle leather with the front and back of bag being connected by gussets that formed the ends and bottom. This allowed the haversack to be folded flat when not in use. The large outer flap is the same piece as the back and folds over and down on front and is fastened by a leather closure strap, a.k.a. billet, with buckle and clasp still strongly attached.


Haversack specimen measures 13" wide x 13" tall x 2" deep and is in excellent condition with all leather smooth and robust. Stitching is tight, save for a 1" section at the lower left corner and a 3" section on the lower front seam that shows some fraying and slight separation. Bottom edge of the outer flap has a pleasing scallop design. Centered on the inner front leather body is a fine and clear maker's stamp of "PRITCHARD & BROS / MAKERS / ROCHESTER, N.Y." in a crescent form. No interior leather tool pouch on this specimen. Haversack leather body surface, both front and back, has acquired a rich black plum patina with no evidence of cracking or crazing. Does have light surface creasing overall but no flaking or rot to the leather. Leather flap closure tab is intact but supple and suffers from surface cracking. Black leather shoulder sling is 45" long x 1½" wide and is complete with a large brass roller buckle and clasp. Sling is strong and shows scattered surface cracking and crazing.


'The Horse Soldier' handled this very same haversack a number of years ago and enclosed with this accoutrement is an original bill of sale and a brief handwritten description of the item on an old Horse Soldier business card. Fine, original, Civil War cannoneer's leather haversacks are not plentiful in today's market and this maker marked specimen would make a wonderful artifact to round out any artillery collection.

US ARTILLERY GUNNERS LEVEL WITH ARSENAL MARK
This gunner’s level is in excellent condition. The brass just has a little tarnish that can easily be cleaned. The level itself is in perfect condition and still works. The adjustable slide is also in fine working order. The best part is the markings. Under a nice, crisp eagle in four lines is “US, Watervliet, Arsenal, 1863.”

ARTILLERY MARTINGALE, HISTORICALLY INSCRIBED !
UNQUESTIONABLY, a world-class Civil War Artifact. This piece of history is about as rare a find as can be imagined. I have recently acquired a new item for my own collection and will have to part with this gem. Note: There are only a handful of inscribed Martigale plates known to exist. This is a presentation shield affixed to an Artillery Officers Martingale and there is no doubt that this rig was at the lines. The leather is dyed Artillery red and the plate affixed by brass rivets. This is a very rare and important item. The inscription reads in 6 lines, "Presented To, Maj. A. F. Brooker, 1st Regt. Conn. Arty., By the Line Officers of The Regt., Siege of Petersburg, Va. Oct. 1st, 1864." Brooker mustered into the 1st Conn. in May of 1861 and saw all of the most important action wrought by the Army of the Potomac being noted as serving with honor, distinction and gallantry. He assisted in the defenses of Washington and proceeded to the Peninsula Campaign including the Siege of Yorktown and Seven Days battles under McClellan. He bore a prominent role at Malvern Hill and later received words of praise from Burnside for service at Fredericksburg. He was present at Gettysburg and then fitted out the siege train for Petersburg where he again received praise for his "brilliant performance during the siege operations" from General Butler. This is an artifact unlike any you will probably ever see, and if I hadn't have run across a great new sword for my own collection, it would not be offered for sale. A great opportunity and a wonderful display piece.

Une Friction primer box, PNH, 1861.

Comme disais Jack, si elle se portait à la ceinture cet pochette est plus grande qu'une "cap pouch"

EXTREMELY FINE MAKER-MARKED MID-EIGHTEETH CENTURY SET OF SOLID SILVER ENCASED GUNNER'S ARTILLEY INSTRUMENTS



Presented here is a remarkable and very rare pocket kit of solid-silver, English-made artillery instruments circa 1750. This extraordinary grouping of eleven, high-quality 'gunner's mathematical instruments' are in very excellent condition and come housed in their original wooden and leather-wrapped hinged case. Still in 100% complete original condition, this stunningly attractive gunner's set of instruments was the product of Benjamin Scott, one of England's premier instrument makers of the 1740s and 1750s. Cursory records reveal that Scott was the scientific instrument maker for the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences, as well as the official compass maker for the Russian Navy Ministry from 1733 to 1747.


This set of gunner's tools consist of eleven, extremely well-made, solid silver calculating (drafting) instruments that appear to have been little used and are in excellent plus condition. The instruments, all executed in solid silver with ornate engraved numerics and decorations include a large folding 'gunner's caliper' with a integral protractor and two silver extenders; a military folding 'proportional compass' or sector; a folding 5" long 'parallel rule'; one 5" long 'calibrated measuring scale'; a thin, hollow, 'tubular shaft' with slide-in cap; one 'drawing pen' with an ink point; one set of 'dividers' or compass with two attachable brass bows and attachable steel point. Most of the individual instruments are engraved with the maker "B:Scott fecit" along with numerals and notations. One such notation is found on the gunner's caliper and reads "The Weight in the / Decimal parts of / a Pound Aueroupa (?) / of a Globe whose / Diameter is one / Inch English & / of a Cube / whose side / is one Inch." Other inscriptions on the caliper read "Names of Guns" / "Weight of Shot" / Powder of Service".


Instruments all fit into their original, black leather, veneer covered, single-hinged, tapered wooden carrying case which measures 2¾" wide at the top, 2¼" wide at the base and stands 5½" tall. The two-section case opens via a spring-loaded push button opener that releases the hinged upper portion of the case. The case top has a silver hinge with a tooled silver border edge. Bottom of the case interior holds a wooden block that has been drilled and hollowed out to conform to and receive lengthwise the various shapes of the silver instruments. When closed, deep narrow slits, holes and indentations safely and snuggly accommodate the multitude of measuring instruments within the case. One hole remains empty, most likely for a missing brass divider bow. The instrument case body is strong and tight with a fine leather exterior wrap. Lid portion of the case exhibits a faded piece of red velvet glued to the top interior.
