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.
I don’t care what you say, this is cool. It was apparently in two pieces originally and has been reinforced with epoxy. It must be from an adult because there is a lot of wear and smoothing. Mastodon teeth more resemble carnivore teeth than those of mammoths which are more like a cows. I posted this in the ‘Misc. Artifacts ‘ section because it probably died at the hands of a group of Paleo Man. Be the only person on your block th own one. Free shipping.
This European Fighting Axe was found in a field along the Wabash River between a French trading post and the Tippecanoe battlefield. That doesn’t mean that it had anything to do with either. I’m just sayin’. Anyway this is a very cool artifact. It is definitely very old. I now have new information from an expert. Apparently it is a battle-axe of a type originally from Eastern Europe (Hungarian or Polish) ca 1600.
Here is a colorful group of thin flake knives or bladelets. The ancient Native Americans made them to be used for cutting. They are as sharp as a scalpel when they are made. This technology was used beginning in Paleo times. The longest is 2-1/4″ in length.
