    Nice Grouping of Civil War Enlisted Man's Equipment. Two smooth sided canteens and one bullseye canteen, all with some dents, otherwise excellent. Three cap boxes, all double loop brass finial. One unmarked, one with inspector's mark and Grossman/Newark maker's mark, and one marked "US" on the outer flap with carved initials, made without an inner flap. About mint brown buff waist belt with the original brass adjusting loop and "puppy paw" oval U.S. waist belt plate, which is excellent. Also includes a very fine cap box with inspector's mark on the front flap, R. White maker's mark on the inside flap, with the original wool and vent pick. Circular eagle cross belt plate for the NCO/musician sword, which actually appears to be an early battlefield recovery that has been cleaned, missing the two lower hooks. Classic Civil War tin cup with wire reinforced handle on which there is a name neatly scratched. Finally a standard issue tarred canvas Civil War "soft pack" knapsack. Excellent, complete and sound with just a few cracks at one fold, inspector's mark on one of the shoulder straps. Neat grouping.

    The resulting auction of my property overwhelmed me. I want to thank Tom Slater and the Heritage team for a very satisfactory experience and profitable result with my historical consignment.
