Revolutionary War Era Brown Bess Flintlock Musket

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: English flintlock rifle, circa Revolutionary War era. Bears George III crown mark on lock mechanism. This resembles the Brown Bess, but it appears to have been assembled from components of 2-3 different period pieces. Each component appears to be late 1700s -- in other words, there are no modern reproduction parts -- but we believe it is an old firearm put together from components that happen to fit. We could certainly be mistaken, though, and we're open to changing/editing this description if we hear from the experts out there who know their flintlocks.

20C Tuscarora INDIAN CHIEF Headdress New York

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Circa 1930s beaded feather headdress in excellent condition, an authentic Native American-made item not made for the tourist trade. Harlyn Dickinson was superintendent of the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge in Niagara Falls, N.Y., from 1917-1947. The Tuscarora Nation of New York, skilled at beadwork, found this bridge to be a prime spot to sell their wares, and Dickinson treated them well, allowing them to peddle their beaded items there. This kindness was not lost on the Tuscarora, who made Dickinson an honorary Chief of the Tuscarora Nation and presented him with this headdress, which has been in the family ever since. Front of headband to top measures about 21".
