This 150+ year old metal is a museum quality Civil War Relic. It is from the 76th Infantry Regiment of the Illinois Volunteer Union Army based out of Kankakee, Illinois. The 76th was mustered Aug. 22nd 1862 and had a long history in the Civil War including fighting under General Grant at several locations such as the seige of Vicksburg. It also fought under General Sherman at Jackson Mississippi where it lost 102 men, 16 of which were left on the field. The 76th fought in the last major battle of the war at Fort Blakely Alabama where it helped capture an intire Confererate garrison and suffered heavy lossed. Unfortunately that battle was fought hours after Lee had already surrendered The regiment then traveled to Chicago where it was disbanded on August 6,1865. Over 250 men were killed in battle and by disease it their 3 year tenure. I am sure this is worth much more than my asking price.

This is a very rare artifact. It as worn on the earlobe that was pierced to allow this to slide into place and held in place by the small grove. It is fashioned from a speckeled hardstone and is highly polished. The front side is rounded and very symmetrical. The back side has been flattened and is more oblong. Between the front and the back is a small grove on its entire circumference. This is a great example of Native American artwork and fashion.
This hook was purchased at a relic show in the early 70’s. It was part of a group of artifacts from an abandon fishing village recovered in the 1940’s. The village was near Hooper Bay Alaska Latitude 61:30 Longitude 166. It appears to be old and authentic with nice patina.
This is a beautiful deeply grooved axe. There are several larger crystals embedded in the in this piece. It is highly polished and fluted slightly on the bottom. The blade shows slight signs of use wear and it has a couple scratches from farm equipment but survived in great shape.
This is an awesome Baily and Himes ball glove. This one is from the days of the baseball greats. The lack of a web and finger laces tell how old it is. It is in good condition with no rips or tears in the leather. It has normal use wear and the strap is in good shape. The leather remains soft and pliable but probably could use some oil. It even fits my big hand. This one is man cave material and worthy of top shelf display.
This is an amazing artifact. The photos don’t show it but the banded red slate has tiny flakes of mica throughout which causes the piece to glitter in the light. It has a single hole that was drilled from one side making it probably from the Mound Builder Culture. It is very well made, symmetrical and highly polished. It also has awesome patina. There is an ancient nick on the side that appears to have been there from when it was made. The wear in the nick shows it was used long after the nick happened. This is an awesome piece. You will be amased by the glitter, If not you can always return it. I will try to get a better sunlight picture.
