Quite nice condition, .69 cal., Confederate Cavalry carbine, blacksmith crafted from an 1849 date, Model 1842 Springfield, 3-band musket. It is smooth bore and would have carried a lethal load of buck or buck and ball. This is a sharp looking little weapon, quite typical of which many Confederate Cavalrymen were armed.

circa 9th - 11th Century AD Anglo Saxon/viking Finger Ring A twisted wire copper-alloy finger ring possibly dating to the late Anglo-Saxon or the post medieval period. The wire is circular in section, uniform in width and coiled three times to form the band, the ends of which are wrapped around the hoop to bind them together. Made from multiple bands with a bezel of knotted appearance, is more likely to belong to the late Anglo-Saxon period with the arrival of Viking culture.
