12-02-02 - Presentation Foot Officer’s Sword to 3rd USCT Officer – Also was a Police Officer and the Presentation is from his buddies in the Boston, Mass. P.D. I do not recall ever owning a Civil War officer’s presentation sword where the recipient and donors were all “flat foots” … “Cops”. Sword is a fine condition M1850 foot officer’s sword housed in its original brass mounted steel scabbard. The top scabbard mount is beautifully engraved “Presented To Capt. E.P. Barker by officers of the 3rd Police Station Boston Aug. 11th 1863”

The sword itself has near perfect shagreen grip covering and perfect twisted wire wrap. The blade is VG++ with no factory luster but being shiny steel overall. Ricasso is signed by Ames Mfg Co. Blade etching has eagle, US, etc… The scabbard is likewise fine. Top mount bears full Ames legend. Balance of steel scabbard is fine plum color with extra attractive brass mounts and drag. Records show Captain Barker served with the 3rd USCT from 1863 through 1865. The unit saw combat at Fort Wagner, Fort Gregg, Jacksonville Fla, and more. Of additional interest is that this sword and its presentation were reported in the Boston Newspaper in 1863. Accompanying this sword is a fine little hardbound book titled “Civil War Sword and Revolver Presentations as Reported in the Boston Daily Evening Transcript 1861-1865” by David Stroud. One of only 300 copies published. In the book our sword is entry 63 with a most thrilling account of Capt. Barker’s story. Quoting from the book “… Mr. Edmond P. Barker for several years past the well known and faithful driver of the city vehicle commonly known as the Black Maria.” (NOTE THIS IS THE POLICE PADDY WAGON). “… has just received a commission from the War Dept as Captain in the US 3rd Penna of Colored Volunteers…” (3rd USCT organized at Philadelphia). “… and leaves this evening to enter upon his duties….” Much more data on his service in Boston. A fine sword, with interesting history, and wonderful background. $3,650.00 SOLD

He is William L. Cochran of the 2nd W.Va. Vols. Here is a recap of the unit’s history.

On May 25, 1898, the President of the United States requested Governor Atkinson to send forward a Second Regiment of Infantry. The Governor hastened to issue a call, and the companies hastily formed in various parts of the State, rendezvoused at “Camp Atkinson” on the north bank of the Great Kanawha, about half a mile below the mouth of Elk River,… Here the Regiment was organized, the regimental officers being as follows, viz: D. T. E. Casteel, Colonel; O’Brien Moore, Lieutenant Colonel; Howard Atkinson, .Major; Charles D. Elliott, Major; William F Henshaw. Surgeon; Zadoc T. Kalbaugh. Assistant Surgeon; William F. Bailey, Assistant Surgeon; Rev. Albert S. Kelly, Chaplain. The companies were mustered into service by Captain J. M. Burns of the 17th U. S. Infantry; the first on June 25th, and the last on the 9th of July. The Regiment left “Camp Atkinson” and moved to Middletown, Pennsylvania, where it entered “Camp Meade.” Here some months were spent, after which it removed to “Camp Wetherill at Greenville, South Carolina, where it was mustered out of service, March, 1899. A very handsome and wonderfully inscribed US military sword. $975.00 SOLD

12-02-13 – Confederate Used Ames 1860 dated Light Cavalry Saber - I purchased this saber directly from the family who related that their ancestors hailed from Maryland with Confederate sympathies. This light cavalry saber bears the marks “AMES MFG CO CHICOPEE MASS” and “1860”... with no federal inspection markings.

Fine condition but the attaching pin is gone from the back. Also included is a 31st Iowa CDV showing a soldier wearing precisely this type of 15th corps badge. The corps badge has a miniature cartridge box with the words “FORTY ROUNDS” above the US plate. As the legend goes the 15th corps adopted this design because in the earlier days of the war the 15th corps had no adopted insignia, and reportedly when one of the men was asked why he wore no corps insignia the hardened soldier responded by slapping his cartridge box and telling the neophyte that this was his corps badge. Whether true or not the story persists as part of the history of the 15th corps. A very fine example of a very scarce badge… $795.00 SOLD

Has hints of blue in protected areas. The balance of the steel is an attractive plum patina. Mechanically perfect, 100% original… and darn scarce. SN 15517G $2250.00 SOLD
