    Very Fine Civil War Artillery Gunner's Haversack as used by the No. 4 gunner to transport the cartridge to the gun, in order to, at least in theory, preclude the accidental ignition of the powder. This example is deeply marked in the center of the front flap "U. S./ Watervliet/ Arsenal".The bag itself is near mint, completely untouched with just some minor scuffs at the edges. The sling and latch tab both show some cracking to the finish but just some tiny spots of flaking and very sound. Both buckles perfect with just a coat of grime. A choice example of this scarce piece of Civil War artillery equipment.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
