by James D. Julia

March 16, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

Fairfield, ME, USA

Estimated Price: $4,500 - $7,500

Description: SN M137253. Cal. 380 ACP. All blue finish with 3-3/4" bbl, fixed sights with standard slide markings and rampant Colt at left rear end. Right side of frame, above trigger guard is marked "U.S. PROPERTY". Left rear side of framehas a tiny ordnance wheel and it is mounted with full checkered, rampant Colt silver medallion walnut grips.

Under remarks section the letter states that the pistol was shipped without "M" prefix, however their records indicate that about Dec. 1944 a number of these pistols were returned to Colt for rework and it was at that time that the "M" prefix was added.

FABULOUS ARCHIVE OF COL. EDWARD ANDERSON

Lot 1374: FABULOUS ARCHIVE OF COL. EDWARD ANDERSON "THE INFAMOUS FIGHTING PREACHER" WHO PERSONALLY EXECUTED NUMEROUS SUSPECTED CONFEDERATE SPIES, GUERRILLAS, BUSHWACKERS AND DISLOYAL SOUTHERN CITIZENS.

by James D. Julia

March 15, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

Fairfield, ME, USA

Estimated Price: $12,500 - $22,500

Description: SN 20147. Col. Edward Anderson archive includes presentation Smith & Wesson #2 Army revolver, Cavalry Officers Saber, two gold medals and much more. There is a vast archive of research and orig information accompanying this lot including Norm Flayderman's research which starts in 1957. This collection was one of Norm's favorite groupings which he hoped to write an article on one day. After glancing through a few of the documents and letters in this group,Anderson's life would probably make for the basis of a great movie with Anderson being villain or hero depending on the perspective it would be written from. In a typed obituary from 1916 Anderson's military record is stated as follows: "Enlisted in a Company from Massachusetts raised by Colonel Thomas W. Higginson. Joined John Brown in Lawrence, Kansas in 1856 and took an active part against the Border Ruffians of Missouri for the purpose of making Kansas a free state. Chaplain 37th. Illinois Infantry September 18, 1861. Colonel 12th Indiana Cavalry March 1, 1864. Commanded the 2nd. Brigade 2nd. Division Cavalry Corps. Department of Massachusetts until November 10, 1865 when he was mustered out. A Commission of Brigadier General was issued to him and was waiting the signature of the lamented Lincoln the day he was assassinated." Among the orig papers in this archive there is a nearly unbelievable manuscript list of 31 "disloyal persons" in Northern Alabama who were killed by Col. Anderson or by his command. The 29th person on this list, Pat Davis, is mentioned in a January 25, 1868 Louisville Journal newspaper article entitled "Why I Became a Rebel". In this article the writer tells of "Pat Davis, a peaceable, quiet, but noble boy, age 17 years, was one evening bathing in a creek a short distance from his home when a squad of soldiers belonging to the 12th Indiana arrested him and took him to camp...Col. Anderson asked if he was a bushwacker? He replied I am not...the answer of Anderson was "you are a damned liar, sir..." he was confined that night...you shall be shot...take a file of picked men and carry Davis to the woods and shoot him and leave him there...he was taken to the woods... tied to a tree and shot...through both hands...second shot passed through another limb and they continued to shoot the boy until he was shot 16 times...It was 3 hours from the time Lt. Lee (Lt. John Mayne Lee) fired the first shot until the firing of the final shot..." The original "hit list" is enclosed in an 1866 letter from Col. Anderson to his father stating why he personally killed or ordered to be killed "disloyal" bushwackers as a provost court were releasing these same men he had orig taken as prisoners; Col. Anderson was indeed court-martialed for the murder of Pat Davis. It is amazing based on the evidence that he was acquitted but this was a Reconstruction court in Nashville, Tennessee. Col. Anderson tells his father "I would go into details of the guerrilla fights in the South, and the various cases of execution of men taken in the act, but such a thing is not perfectly safe since if papers containing such evidence were ever to fall into the hands of the friends of the present administration, they might be used to do harm if in no other way in blackmail which I am fully convinced the President is capable of, particularly since some of his friends in Tennessee and Northern Alabama might be found among the number of guerrillas so slain..." There is an unpublished 13 page typed essay by Ashley Halsey, historian, collector and Associate Editor of the Saturday Evening Post about 1963. "When Anderson finally appeared in Kansas, he grew a beard, bought a horse, and enrolled with John Brown. Kansas itself was divided between New England abolitionist-settlers and Missouri pro-slavery ruffians. On May, of 1856, John Brown, with calculated brutality, led his ruthless, bloodthirsty men to Pottawatomie Creek, five miles from the Brown homestead, and there they mercilessly hacked to pieces five rumored slavery supporters. This was how Anderson first became baptised in blood." The essay goes on "During the fall and winter of 1863, Anderson, now colonel of the 12th. Indiana Cavalry, recruited his men. He hand-picked each lieutenant and captain, every one of them capable of carrying through Anderson's orders, no matter what they may be, or so Anderson thought...By February of 1864. Anderson was fully equipped for war. His friend, (David) Browne, presented him with a new Smith and Wesson nickle-plated revolver as a parting remembrance...It was during this period that the bloody reign of Colonel Edward Anderson began. The region which he commanded was infested with "guerrillas and bushwackers."...For many unfortunate men, a weird smile, a glint of sunshine refracted by the edges of a shiny pistol, and a yellow jet of exploding fulminite were the last earthly scenes of life." This essay is published on the Julia website along with the "Black List" of killed guerrillas and letter to Anderson's father telling of his deeds. The presentation Smith & Wesson shows use but is still fully functional and well preserved retaining most of it's orig plating and factory Mother of Pearl grips.

by James D. Julia

March 15, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

Fairfield, ME, USA

Estimated Price: $20,000 - $30,000

Description: Jarius W. Hall entered service as Lieutenant in June 1861. He moved through the ranks of the 4th Michigan with six promotions, finally becoming its Colonel in late 1864 and later brevetted Brigadier General for "gallant and meritorious service". He was a Major at Gettysburg when he avenged the death of Col. Harrison Jeffords and his brother who both were killed on the second day battle at the "Wheat Field" while trying to save the battle flag of the 4th Michigan. Col. Harrison Jeffords was the highest ranked American officer known mortally wounded by a bayonet (Harry W. Pfanz Gettysburg-The Second Day). The 4th was heavily fought in most battles of the Army of the Potomac and their 3 year term of duty came to an end June, 16 1864. The unit shipped back to Michigan and was commissioned full Colonel and mustered out of service June 30, 1864. The unit was reorganized at Adrian, Michigan where Col. Hall was presented this magnificent sword. Six days after presentation, the reorganized 4th was in Nashville, Tennessee and saw continued service against John Bell Hood's Winter Campaign in Northern Alabama and East Tennessee. Hall would continue to command the unit when it was sent to New Orleans and later to San Antonio for garrison duty where the unit was paid off and disbanded in May of 1866. Statue grips are the highest grade of American swords. This particular sword shows a helmeted Roman soldier with sword and shield wearing lion skin cape on pedestal in full relief. Hilt is decorated in full figured, layered floral sprays and quillon terminates in head of dragon. Scabbard is German silver with raised relief mounts in style of guard. A 2-1/2" x 1-1/2" plaque between top mounts reads "Presented to Col. J. W. Hall by the Commissioned Officers of the 4th Michigan Infantry. Adrian Oct. 8th 1864". CONDITION: Fine overall 32" blade mostly bright, cleaned, 9" patriotic panels still retain frosting with some gold highlights, brass hilt and scabbard mounts show 50% plus gold plating, especially in sheltered areas. German silver scabbard body sound and solid with two dents on opposite sides above drag. Throat and drag are missing screws. There is a hairline crack in neck of statue that does not affect aesthetics. Sword knot is in matching fine condition with light wear and scuffing. Silver presentation plaque is fine, easily read. 4-54468

RARE GOLD AND ENAMEL MOLLUS MEDAL BELONGING AND ISSUED TO GENERAL GEORGE ARMSTRONG CUSTER.

Lot 1427: RARE GOLD AND ENAMEL MOLLUS MEDAL BELONGING AND ISSUED TO GENERAL GEORGE ARMSTRONG CUSTER.

by James D. Julia

March 15, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

Fairfield, ME, USA

Estimated Price: $50,000 - $70,000

Description: This badge, well provenanced, descended in Libbie Custer's Estate. SN 1641 is documented in Union Blue by Carroon & Shoaf as being membership number of Custer. The Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States (MOLLUS) was organized April 15, 1865, as word of President Abraham Lincoln's death spread throughout the country, three Union Army officer friends met in Philadelphia to discuss the tragic news. Rumors from Washington of a conspiracy to destroy the Federal government by assassination of its leaders prompted the three officers to form an organization that could help thwart future threats to the national government. A mass meeting of Philadelphia veterans was held on April 20, 1865 top leaders renewed allegiance to the Union and to plan for participation in the funeral arrangements for the President. The Philadelphia officers, who served as an honor guard for President Lincoln's funeral cortege, met again after the funeral was over to establish a permanent organization of officers and former officers patterned after the Society of Cincinnati established after the Revolutionary War. The name they chose, the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States, first appeared in a notice calling a meeting on May 31, 1865 at Independence Hall. Since its inception, the MOLLUS membership has included nearly 12,000 Civil War officers. At its zenith, the MOLLUS counted practically every prominent officer among its ranks. Among them were Generals Ulysses S. Grant, William T. Sherman; Lt. Generals Philip H. Sheridan, Nelson A. Miles and John M. Schofield; Major General Winfield Scott Hancock, George B. McClellan, Rutherford B. Hayes, George Armstrong Custer, Grenville M. Dodge; Admiral David G. Farragut; Rear Admirals Bancroft Gherardi and George W.Melville. In addition to Ulysses S. Grant and Rutherford B. Hayes, original Companions Chester A. Arthur, Benjamin Harrison and William McKinley served as Presidents of the United States. Very few items can be traced so closely to Custer's personal ownership. This is no doubt the rarest personal object of the iconic Custer privately owned. PROVENANCE: George Armstrong Custer, Libbie Custer, Margaret Flood, 1933, Spinks, Lot No. 1072, August 23, 2012. CONDITION: 5.5 grams, gold and enamel, 31mm x 31mm x 4mm.

Estimated Price: $22,000 - $27,000

Description: EVGENY ALEXANDROVICH LANCERAY (RUSSIAN 1848-1886)Wine Merchant with his Donkeys, bronze with medium brown patinaheight: 25.5 cm (10 in.)inscribed in Cyrillic with the artist's signature and Berthault foundry markLOT NOTESThe firm of Karl [Charles] Avgustovich Bertault, is intricately linked with the history of the firm of his fellow Frenchman, Felix Chopin. In 1886, Chopin asked Charles Bertault, who was working in Paris for Barbedienne, to manage both his foundries and his shops in St. Peterburg, which Bertault accepted. From 1886-1892, one can find bronzes from the Chopin foundry marked Chopin and Bertault, further evidence that Chopin held Bertault's work in such high regard that he would trust his name with that of his colleague. After the death of Chopin in 1892, Bertault became the proprietor of one of Chopin's foundries, the other having been bought by Shtange. Bertault would continue production and sale of bronzes of the highest quality from his office at 68 Nevsky prospect, and his castings won gold medals at the Exposition Universelles in Paris. By 1902, sales were declining however, and Bertault was forced to close the foundry.

The "Medaglia di Pro Petri Sede" (Pro Petri Medal) was presented to Keogh after the Papal War by Pope Pius IX 1860, he was also awarded the "Ordine di San Gregorio" (St. Gregory Medal). Vatican records confirm these two medals both given to Keogh. The Papal War of 1860 ended with the fall of Ancona where as many as 100 Irish soldiers in the Battalion of St. Patrick were killed or wounded during those few weeks in September. For their service, each officer and enlisted man was awarded the Medal for Gallantry "Pro Petri Sede Medaglia" by Pope Pius IX. The medal is a circular, silvered nickel-silver medal with hollow center with inverted Latin cross. With a circular ring in the form of a scaled mythical creature swallowing it's own tail, on ornate swivel suspension with ribbon bar; the face circumscribed 'PRO PETRI SEDE' (literally 'for the seat of Peter', meaning for the Vatican) above and 'PIO*IX*P*M*A*XV' (= Pius IX Pontifex Maximus 15th year, for the 15th year of the reign of Pope Pius IX = 1860); the reverse circumscribed 'VICTORIA OVAE VINCIT MUNDUM FIDES NOSTRA' (The victory of our flock conquers the world with our faith). These medals were of great importance to Keogh when he lost both in a fire at the famous Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky in 1865. In 1867 Keogh obtained replacement medals. Keogh affirmed he didn't want to take leave for home in Ireland unless he had both medals with him. The last known photograph of Keogh taken in 1872 shows both medals prominently displayed on his left breast. These two medals of Myles Keogh are extremely well provenanced from direct family descent and lastly, one of the largest historians and authorities of Custer memorabilia, Dr. Elizabeth Lawrence. There are few personal mementos documented from the Custer battlefield that have a more interesting history than Keogh's Medal for Gallantry "Medaglia di Pro Petri Sede" given him by Pope Pius IX in 1860 while he was fighting with other Irish Catholics in the Battalion of St. Patrick in the Papal Army. There are numerous accounts concerning Keogh's body being not mutilated due to the fact he was wearing this medal. One of the most comprehensive texts on the Custer battle is Evan Connell's 1984 Son of the Morning Star where he summarizes several accounts of Keogh's body and this medal "Captain Myles Keogh had not been disfigured. He lay naked except for his socks, with a Catholic medal around his neck which usually is identified as an Agnus Dei, perhaps because Agnus Dei is a familiar phrase. Romantics describe it as a cross hanging from a golden chain. Almost certainly this medal was kept in a small leather purse or sheath and Keogh most likely wore it suspended by a leather thong or length of cord. It was the Medaglia di Pro Petri Sede awarded to him by Pope Pius IX for service with the Papal Army." In the most important biography of Keogh, written in 1939 by Edward Luce Keogh, Comanche and Custer. Luce was positive it was "the Pro Petri" medal that he wore and further claimed it was in "... a leather case attached to a cord around his neck..."". Accompanying these medals is a file of correspondence from descendants and Dr. Lawrence concerning medal. It is interesting to note that in a copy of Keogh's will written just three days prior to his death states his $10,000 life insurance policy and all his personal affects would be given to his sister Margaret Keogh in Ireland. In an article posted online, PROVENANCE: Myles Keogh 7th US Cavalry 1860, Margaret Keogh (sister) Kil Kenny, Ireland 1876, Dr. Desmond Blanchfield Keogh,Carlow, Ireland 1947, Garret Keogh Dublin, Ireland 1988, Dr. Elizabeth Atwood Lawrence 1988, Dr. Robert P.

Suspension ring opened on St. Gregory cross to green enameled wreath which is chipped, missing about 60% of enamel overall. Pro Petri still exhibits some luster, however plating is worn and scratched over much of its surface with small reductions of silver plating on cross as can be seen in photographs. 4-54477
