The November 14 auction will feature a single-owner collection of more than 400 lots of US militaria, illustrating all facets of military life, from the federal period of the late 18th and early 19th century through to the civil war of 1861 to 1865.
These will include uniforms, edged weapons, firearms and accoutrements.
Highlighting the auction will be a number of uniform ensembles from the early federal period and civil war, as well as a historic, Paris-made Confederate artillery officer's frock coat of Lieutenant Colonel Richard Snowden Andrews.
Civil war militaria can be especially successful at auction. A flag from the 25th Army Corps sold for $50,787 at a Heritage Auction in 2009.
The sale will also feature more than 30 examples of rare headgear, including early federal period dragoon helmets, elegant bell-topped shakos of the 1820s and 1830s, kepis and Hardee hats from the civil war and chapeau-de-bras bicornes, several with their original boxes.
Edged weapons from the period will include a group of early contract cavalry sabres by Rose and Starr, fine examples of regulation weapons and a selection of bayonets.
The sale will also contain a nearly complete sample of US military firearms, from revolutionary war
muskets to civil war-era rifle muskets and carbines.
Paul Fraser Collectibles will provide you with all the key results from this exciting sale in November.
