" Our camp is on a small prairie skirted with secesh farms. Forage plenty: corn, oats, and Hungarian hay. Pay for all if owner takes the oath. Persimmons in abundance; just flowering good. Has been plenty of grapes and walnuts this fall, but now nearly all are gone." - Pvt. Robert T. McMahan, 25th Independent Ohio Light Artillery - Camp at Lindsey's Prairie, Arkansas, - Nov. 14th, 1862 - From his published diary, " Reluctant Cannoneer," edited by Michael E. Banasik.

Exceptional VF/XF Rare Confederate T-7 July of 1861, One hundred dollar note
Here is A RARE VF/XF July 25th, 1861, Confederate T-7 One Hundred Dollar Note ! Even though printed on quite thin paper, this exampe is just a beauty to behold. With only 37, 155 of these notes ever printed there are few examples remaining today, and even fewer in such excellent condition. Better yet, this one is priced well below book value !Be sure and give it a look. Link at left goes to Confederate Bonds/Currency !
Here is A RARE Confederate .69 Caliber "Arkansas Hog" Bullet ! These bullets are only recovered in a few Trans-Mississippi sites, primarily in Arkansas. Examples in any condition are exceptionally scarce ! Technically known as a French Mangeot Bullet, this is a Fine Dropped example with no digger damage at all. Link at left goes to Bullets.
Excellent Confederate Tin Drum Canteen
Fine Confederate Tin Drum Canteen with Beautiful Patina & Partial ID
Here is a A Fine Confederate Tin Drum Canteen ! It is a typical pattern measuring a little over 6 inches diameter and about an inch and a half wide showing all soldered construction and a tin spout. The tin has a beautiful patina all over with some stress lines in the sides. Better yet, it has the name of the Pennsylvania Soldier who picked it up scratched into one side. Be sure and give it a look. Link at left goes to Mess Equipment.
