This rare AVC plate was dug in 1996 on the Lohr Farm outside of Gettysburg and is purported to be the only AVC plate found at the Battle of Gettysburg. The Lohr farm was used as a hospital site by the CS Army. By July 1863 most AVC items had either been lost or replaced with CS Army replacement items. The AVC button has a pre-war Scovill back-mark and was found in Virginia. This is an awesome piece with great provenance and history.
Here is the Civil War era pipe belonging to Dr. John R Woods who was the Assistant Surgeon of the 48th Mississippi Infantry. He had a very interesting history.
John Randolph Wood left the University of Virginia to volunteer in the Confederate Army - first, as a private. After receiving his Doctor of Medicine degree from the Medical College of Virginia where he graduated in the class of 1863.
and assigned to the 48th Mississippi Infantry which was part of Gen Lee's Army Of Northern Virginia. He was furloughed a couple of times for chronic diarrhea and received a certificate of disability from Medical Examining Board at Chimborazo Hospital Aug 1 or 3, 1864. But he was surrendered and paroled at General Hospital No. 12, Greensboro, NC on May 2, 1865.
and is in excellent condition. The front has the caduceus and one side reads Dr. J R Woods 48th Miss. The other has the CSA with the bottom having a floral pattern. The stem is missing and pipe shows heavy use.
This is a very unique piece of Civil War history and would make a welcome addition to any collection.
Here is a nice UCV Camp Commander frock coat and sash. It is good condition with some light mothing and is a very solid coat and displays really well. It is loaded with South Carolina State Seal buttons with Horstmann Philadelphia back-marks. Has the collar stars of a UCV Camp Commander.
This is an awesome UCV Child's coat and you don't see these often. Confederate Veterans were well known to dress their young grandsons in coat such as this as they rode or marched in parades. It has UCV buttons with Steele & Johnson back-marks which would date it to pre 1920 and the bottom button is a US staff button. This child's coat measure only 14 inches across the shoulders so it could only have been for a small child. These are very hard to come by. It has some light mothing but is in overall great condition and still a very solid coat.
