GUNSIGHT ANTIQUES

As with so many utilitarian items common to the period the lowly sheet iron cow-bell with its distinctive dull 'thunk- thunk', found its way to the front. As with so much of this neat stuff we can thank the modern day digger/ historian for verification of field use of such. (The excavated bell shown here [NOT FOR SALE] is from our own collection. It was found in a Falmouth, Virginia, Maine camp.) Illustrated here with a quarter for size comparison, the sheet iron bell offered here remains in excellent plus condition with a deep natural age patina over a full complement of original finish. Remnants of the original label remain on one side. Not a big deal but the condition alone will make this piece a welcome addition to any quality Civil War grouping. Don't forget to give our search feature a try for special wants. A simple key word in lower case works best. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !!
