    Probably the finest example we've ever cataloged.

    Choice, Untouched Condition CS Richmond .58 Caliber Percussion Rifled Carbine, C. S. Richmond 1863. All metal smooth with great untouched patina, just a touch of very light pitting at the breech, really negligible, and blends perfectly with the patina. Correct V, P eaglehead proof. Mechanism tight and crisp, perfect bore. Unique wide base front sight. Unmarked iron butt plate, brass nose cap. The figured walnut stock is really superb with sharp edges and dark rich patina, near perfect, just a few very minor scratches/dents., obviously acquired during the period of use. Remarkably there is a small ½" X 2½" sliver replaced/ inlaid just forward of the trigger guard with matching patina and obviously done during the weapon's manufacture/ period of use. Correct and original in every respect including all swivels, two leaf rear sight and ramrod. A great Confederate gun, few finer.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
