Colonial Currency, CHARLES PINCKNEY, JR. Signed. South Carolina. April 10, 1778

Lot 295: Colonial Currency, CHARLES PINCKNEY, JR. Signed. South Carolina. April 10, 1778

by Early American

April 25, 2015, 9:00 AM PST

Rancho Santa Fe, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $900 - $1,200

Description: Famous Signers on Colonial CurrencyCharles Pickney Jr. Signed April 10, 1778 South CarolinaCharles Pinckney, Jr. (1757-1824), Signer of the U.S. Constitution, Member of the Continental Congress, Governor of South Carolina, U.S. Senator, United States Minister to Spain.South Carolina. April 10, 1778. Three Shillings Nine Pence. "Beaver" vignette. Signed, "Chs. Pinckney Junr.", Crisp About Uncirculated. Fr. SC-146. This fresh and very clean Charles Pinckney Jr. Signed, April 10, 1778 South Carolina note appears CU. There is some roughness to the paper at its upper right blank reverse corner which appears to be where an old hinge was removed. Overall, the printing is sharp, the vignette distinct. An uncommon, important and historic major signature, the rich brown signature of Charles Pinckney, Jr. measures about 2.5" long.Charles Pinckney, Jr. (1757-1824) was elected to the Continental Congress from 1777-1778. He then started to practice law in Charleston in 1779 at the age of 21. About that time, well after the War for Independence had begun, young Pinckney enlisted in the militia. He became a lieutenant, and served at the siege of Savannah, GA. from September through October 1779. When Charleston fell to the British the next year, the young Pinckney was captured and held as a prisoner until June 1781.He was elected again to the Continental Congress following the war, serving 1784-87. He was elected to the state legislature for several terms (1779-80, 1786-89, and 1792-96). As a Nationalist, he worked hard in Congress trying to ensure that the United States would receive navigation rights from Spain to the Mississippi River and to strengthen congressional power.Pinckney's role in the Constitutional Convention is controversial. Although one of the youngest delegates, he later claimed to have been the most influential one and contended he had submitted a draft, known as the "Pinckney Plan", that was the basis of the final Constitution. He submitted an elaborate form of the "Virginia Plan", submitted by Edmund Randolph, but it was disregarded by the other delegates. Historians assess him as an important contributing delegate.Pinckney boasted that he was 24, allowing him to claim distinction as the youngest delegate, but he was 30 years old that year. He attended full-time, spoke often and effectively, and contributed immensely to the final draft and to the resolution of problems that arose during the debates. He also worked for ratification in South Carolina (1788).At the Convention, Pierce Butler and Pinckney, both from South Carolina, introduced the Fugitive Slave Clause (Article IV, Section II, Clause III). Declaration of Independence signer James Wilson of Pennsylvania objected, saying that it was special protection for slave holders, requiring all state governments to enforce it at taxpayers' expense, in places where no one or most residents did not own slaves. Butler withdrew the clause. But, the next day, a southerner reinstated the clause and the Convention adopted it without further objection. This clause was added to the clause that provided extradition for fugitives from justice."No Person held to Service or Labour in one State, under the Laws thereof, escaping into another, shall, in Consequence of any Law or Regulation therein, be discharged from such Service or Labour, but shall be delivered up on Claim of the Party to whom such Service or Labour may be due."This clause was first applied to fugitive slaves and required that they be extradited upon the claims of their masters. This practice was not eliminated until the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery. In 1864, during the Civil War, an effort to repeal this clause of the Constitution failed.He was also responsible for another important clause to the Constitution that later was used, along with the 1st and 14th amendments, to vacate several state constitutions' clauses requiring oaths of office holders to affirm a deity.Charles' home state of South Carolina had established Protestantism as the state religion so it was interesting that he introduced a clause into the Constitution article VI in opposition to an established state religion. His "no religious test" clause read as follows: "no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States".Once the inclusion of the phrase was brought to a vote it passed with little opposition and so for the first time in history an official of a national government was not required to have a religion. Interesting also was that the final blow to states requiring office holders to swear to God was fought in his home state of South Carolina, that had originally had an established state religion, in the 1997 South Carolina Supreme Court case of Silverman v. Campbell.Subsequent to his importance and influence as a delegate, Pinckney's political career blossomed. From 1789 to 1792, the state legislature elected him as Governor of South Carolina, and in 1790 he chaired the state constitutional convention. During this period, he became associated with the Federalist Party, in which he and his cousin Charles Cotesworth Pinckney were leaders. But, with the passage of time, the former's views began to change.In 1795 he attacked the Federalist-backed Jay's Treaty. He increasingly began to cast his lot with Carolina back-country Democratic-Republicans against his own eastern aristocracy. The population in the western part of the state was increasing, but apportionment favored the Low Country planters. In 1796 Pinckney was elected Governor again by the state legislature. In 1798 his Democratic-Republican supporters in the legislature elected him to the U.S. Senate.Pinckney strongly opposed actions by his former party, and in the presidential election of 1800, served as Thomas Jefferson's campaign manager in South Carolina. The victorious Jefferson appointed Pinckney as Minister to Spain (1801-05). He tried but did not succeed in gaining cession by Spain of the Floridas to the United States. He facilitated Spanish acquiescence in the transfer of Louisiana from France to the United States in 1803 by the Louisiana Purchase.Pinckney returned from Spain to Charleston and to leadership of the State (Democratic) Republican Party. He sat in the legislature in 1805-06 and was again elected as Governor (1806-08). In this position, he favored legislative reapportionment, giving better representation to back-country districts, and advocated universal white manhood suffrage. He served again in the legislature from 1810 to 1814, and then temporarily withdrew from politics. In 1818 he won election to the United States House of Representatives, where he fought against the Missouri Compromise as he was interested in having slavery be expanded to new territories and states.In 1821, with his health beginning to fail, Pinckney retired for the last time from politics. He died in 1824, three days after his 67th birthday. He was laid to rest at St. Philip's Episcopal Churchyard in Charleston.(From Wikipedia)

Exceptional Colt/Auto-Ordnance Model 1928 Navy Thompson Submachine Gun with Accessories

Lot 1594: Exceptional Colt/Auto-Ordnance Model 1928 Navy Thompson Submachine Gun with Accessories

by Rock Island Auction Company

April 25, 2015, 9:00 AM CST

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Exceptional Colt/Auto-Ordnance Model 1928 Navy Thompson Submachine Gun with Accessories Colt/Auto-Ordnance Model 1928 Navy Thompson Submachine Gun manufactured in 1921. Colt Firearms manufactured 15,000 Thompson Submachine Guns for the Auto-Ordnance Corporation in 1921. All 15,000 Colt/AO Thompson Submachine Guns were originally designated Model 1921. The Model 1921 Thompson Submachineguns had a 800 round per minute rate of fire and were not fitted with Cutts compensators. Between 1926 and 1928, the Marine Corps obtained a few Model 1921 Thompsons. Based on combat experience in Nicaragua and China, the Marines recommended reduction of the rate of fire. In response to the Marine critique of the Model 1921, Auto-Ordnance modified the bolt, recoil spring and pilot rod to reduce the rate of fire to around 600 rounds per minute and added a Cutts compensator to the muzzle to reduce barrel climb during automatic fire. In 1928, Auto-Ordnance designated modified guns as "Model 1928". The modified Thompsons had "U.S. NAVY" stamped above the "MODEL OF 1921" marking on the left side of the receiver and "8" hand-stamped over the "1" in "1921". Although the guns were marked "U.S. NAVY", most Model 1928 Thompsons were sold to law enforcement. This gun has the larger, second style, Cutts compensator with Cutts trademarks and patent markings on the top. The gun has the 1928 internal components which include: (1) a 1928 second style blued weighted actuator, (2) long one piece pilot rod. (3) small diameter recoil spring and (4) red fiber recoil buffer. The bronze Blish lock is correctly not stamped with sub-contract marks. The bolt is bright and has a "C" stamped on the inside. The gun has the original finned barrel and folding leaf rear sight marked: "MADE BY 'LYMAN' MIDDLEFIELD, CONN. U.S.A." on the base. The internal components on the trigger frame and stock are finished bright. The front of the detachable stock is stamped with the small anchor symbol used by the stock-maker Remington Arms. The forearm and pistol grip are original Colt/AO components. The ejector, magazine release, firing lever and safety are all the early Colt/AO components. The left side of the trigger frame has the second style "FULL/AUTO", "SINGLE" and "FIRE-SAFE" markings found on most Colt/AO Model 1928 guns. In addition to the model markings and the serial number "NO 12666", the left side of the receiver is roll-stamped: "THOMPSON SUBMACHINE GUN/CALIBRE .45 AUTOMATIC COLT CARTRIDGE/MANUFACTURED BY/COLT'S PATENT FIRE ARMS MFG. CO./HARTFORD, CONN., U.S.A." in five lines below the rear sight. The right side of the receiver is roll-stamped: "AUTO-ORDNANCE CORPORATION./NEW YORK. U.S.A." in two lines followed by the six-line block of patent dates. An encircled "JHB" monogram utilized by Auto-Ordnance inspector John Barrett is lightly stamped ahead of the patent marking. The top of the receiver is roll-stamped with the distinctive Thompson "Bullet" trademark. The bottom of the trigger frame is stamped with the serial number "NO 12666". The trigger frame and receiver serial numbers match. Included with this Thompson are: (1) a 50 round "L" WWII Auto-Ordnance drum magazine, (2) two early Colt/AO 20-round magazines with two-line 1920 and 1921 patent dates and (3) a nickel-plated oiler. The gun has a BATF Form 4 and is a registered Class III weapon. Check for legality in your location. Manufacturer: Colt Model: 1928 thompson BBL: 12 1/2 Inch Stock: walnut Gauge: 45 ACP Finish: Blue Grips: walnut Serial Number: 12666 Class: Class III Condition: Excellent plus. The gun has all of the original Model 1928 components and retains 99% of the bright original Colt commercial blue finish. Finish wear is limited to the buttplate which shows some thinning to the blue finish on the edges and heel. The markings are perfect. The bore is mirror bright. The forearm, pistol grip and stock are in nearly new condition; all of the original oil finish remains and there is almost no handling or storage wear. Nearly all of the surviving Colt/AO Model 1928 Thompson Submachine Guns were used by law enforcement agencies and typically show years of handling and storage wear. This Model 1928 Navy is in almost new condition and is one of the best example extant. The Colt/AO Model 1928 Navy Thompson Submachine Gun is a historic and extremely desirable firearm. Used by the Marine Corps in China and the "Banana Wars" in Central America and by the FBI and law enforcement during the Great Depression, the Model 1928 was the most popular and best known variation of the Thompson Submachine Gun. The high quality, commercial blue Colt finish is stunning. This is the finest example of a Model 1928 Navy Thompson Submachine Gun that we have ever offered at auction and would be the centerpiece of any firearms collection. NOTE: This item is restricted as a National Firearms Act (NFA), Fully Automatic Weapon that is currently registered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (BATF&E) that has been classified as a "Curios or Relic" as defined in 27 CFR, 478.11. These weapons are still subject to the provisions of 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44 and 27 CFR part 478.

Lafayette's 1792 Address To The French Army Newspaper Imprint

by Early American

Rancho Santa Fe, CA, USA

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Post-Revolutionary War to Civil WarLafayette's 1792 Address To The French Army December 5, 1792, Essex Journal & New Hampshire Packet, Newspaper Imprint, Newburyport, N.H., Wood Framed, Very Fine.The front page of this issue contains a report by the House of Representatives to President George Washington, touching on, among other things, the National Debt. One paragraph reads: "The productive state of the public revenue, and the confirmation of the credit of the United States abroad, evinced by the loans at ANTWERP and AMSTERDAM, are communications the more gratifying, as they enforce the obligation to enter on systematic and effectual arrangements for discharging the public debt; as far as the conditions of it will permit. And, we take pleasure in the opportunity to assure you, of our entire concurrence in the opinion that no measure can be more desirable, whether viewed with an eye to the urgent wish of the community, or the intrinsic importance of promoting so happy a change in our situation."The back page reproduces the English text, published in the Leyden Gazette, of an address by the Marquis De La Fayette to the French Army he had commanded, but who's command had now been taken from him. Lafayette's address reads, in part:"Fellow Soldiers - At a time, when after having concurred in two great revolutions, I enjoyed in retirement the success of my constant efforts for the cause of the people, the dangers of the country, snatched me from a private life; I came in the midst of the applause of the nation, to command the army which the King had entrusted to me; and the National Assembly deigned, by the organ of its president, to say to me 'We oppose to the enemies coalesced against us, the Constitution and La Fayette.' Since this period, you have had the means of judging me. Your confidence shewed me that you approved of my conduct ...." The address is followed by a note: "This address was certified to the Editor of the Leyden Gazette by six officers of M. De LaFayette's late etat-major, who left France with him, but who have been released from the prisons of Luxemburgh."In 1787, Lafayette obtained a seat in the Assembly of Notables. He demanded, and he alone signed the demand, that the king convoke the Estates-General, thus becoming a leader in the French Revolution. He showed liberal tendencies both in that assembly and after its dispersal, and, in 1788, was deprived, in consequence, of his active command.In 1789, La Fayette was elected to the Estates-General, and took a prominent part in its proceedings. He was chosen vice-president of the National Assembly, and on 11 July 1789 proposed a declaration of rights, modeled on Jefferson's Declaration of Independence in 1776.On July 15, the second day of the new regime, La Fayette was chosen by acclamation colonel-general of the new National Guard of Paris. For the next three years, until the end of the constitutional monarchy in 1792, his history is largely the history of France. He rescued the queen from the hands of the mob in October 1789, saved many humbler victims who had been condemned to death, and he risked his life in many unsuccessful attempts to rescue others. Before this, disgusted with mob injustices and atrocities which he was powerless to prevent, he had resigned his commission. But so impossible was it to replace him, that he was induced to resume it.He drafted the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, which was adopted by the Assembly. In February 1790, he refused the supreme command of the National Guard of the kingdom. Taking a position between Royalist supporters of absolute monarchy and Republicans such as the Jacobins and Cordeliers, Lafayette took a prominent part in the celebration of July 14, 1790, the first anniversary of the storming of the Bastille.After suppressing a riot in April 1791 he again resigned his commission, and was again compelled to retain it. Louis XVI's flight to Varennes undermined the position of the constitutional monarchists, especially Lafayette himself who, as Commander of the National Guard, had had the responsibility to keep the King secure. Shortly after, on July 17, 1791, a large crowd gathered at the Champ de Mars to sign a petition calling for the abolition of the monarchy.Jean-Sylvain Bailly, the Mayor of Paris, ordered the crowd to disperse, and when they did not and began to get rowdy, Lafayette ordered the National Guard to open fire. About 50 people were killed in what became known as the "Massacre of the Champ de Mars", which decisively marked the end of the alliance between constitutional monarchists and Jacobins. On the occasion of the proclamation of the constitution (September 18, 1791), feeling that his task was done, he tried to retire into private life.When, in December 1791, three armies were formed on the western frontier to attack Austria, La Fayette was placed in command of one of them. But events moved faster than La Fayette's moderate and humane republicanism, and seeing that the lives of the king and queen were each day more and more in danger, he definitely opposed himself to the further advance of the Jacobin party, intending eventually to use his army for the restoration of a limited monarchy.On August 19, 1792, the Assembly declared him a traitor. He was compelled to take refuge in the neutral territory of Liège, whence as one of the prime movers in the Revolution he was taken and held as a prisoner of state for five years.

by Rock Island Auction Company

April 25, 2015, 9:00 AM CST

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: U.S. World War I Production Savage Arms Lewis Machine Gun, BATFE Registered Deactivated War Trophy (DEWAT) Developed by Issac Newton Lewis, a U.S. Army officer, the Lewis Gun was one of the lightest machine gun offerings of it's era, coming in at 28 pounds with the distinctive barrel cooling assembly included. Unable to sell the gun to his superiors, Lewis resigned and took off for Belgium, where he made a tidy profit licensing the design to Birmingham Small Arms and Savage Arms. Used in many wars by many operators, a number of Lewis Guns had their cooling assemblies taken off to further lighten the weapon, as can be seen with this example, with both the barrel shroud and cooling fins absent. A replacement post front sight has been installed on the gas block and a wood and metal pistol grip on the rear shroud framework. The original folding ladder rear sight is present, with the Savage Arms nomenclature on top of the frame and the serial number, model marking and "A.B.F." inspection initials under the magazine. A pair of smooth pistol grips and a fixed buttstock are also present, the latter having 19 patent marks stamped on the buttplate. Two extra drum magazines are included. Manufacturer: Savage Arms Corporation Model: Lewis BBL: 26 inch round Stock: walnut Gauge: 30-06 Finish: blue Grips: Serial Number: 14686 Class: Class III Condition: Fair as end-user modified and deactivated, with a mixed brown and gray patina overall, some traces of the original blue finish, and scattered spotting. The front pistol grip is cracked and scuffed, with some light pressure dents on the rear grip and the buttstock. A steel bar has been welded into the bore at the breech, the barrel assembly welded to the receiver, and a number of working parts damaged or removed during the deactivation. NOTE: This item is classified by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives as an Unserviceable Machine Gun or Deactivated War Trophy (DEWAT) in accordance with the terms of the National Firearms Act (NFA). Before bidding on this item it is the sole responsibility and obligation of the bidder/Class 3 FFL holder to comply and understand with all the State and Federal transfer laws and restrictions that apply in their current place of residence. Additionally, no assurances are offered that the weapon can be restored.

Description: Autographs1863 Civil War Date Autograph Letter Signed by William Johnston Former Governor of Pennsylvania, Discussing Politics, the Civil War and Emancipation ProclamationWILLIAM F. JOHNSTON (1808-1872), 11th Governor of Pennsylvania, Autograph Letter Signed, Discussing Politics, the Civil War and Emancipation Proclamation!May 17, 1863-Dated Civil War Period, Outstanding Historic Content, Autograph Letter Signed, "William Johnston," 4 pages, Choice Very Fine+. There is significant important content discussing the ongoing Civil War and the historic Emancipation Proclamation. This extensive, fully Handwritten Letter, from William Johnston, the former Governor of Pennsylvania, is addressed to General Gray. It is very well written in deep rich brown ink upon light blue lined period wove paper. Folded from mailing it measures approximately 7.75" x 9.75" (folded size), clearly and sharply signed "William Johnston" at its conclusion. The first part of this letter deals primarily with a mortgage and interest, then turns to important Politics. The latter portion adds more detail regarding the ongoing Political situation, the Civil War and further repercussions of the Emancipation Proclamation which was issued just a few months before writing this letter. It reads, in part:"Appleton May 17th 1863 --- Dear General Gray ---(Bottom of page two)... Gen. what do think of the war, and what will be the end, will it be a restoration of Union, or separation and a Southern Confederacy. Are you a Breckinridge Democrat yet, I expect not, for I have not doubt of your being a true Union Man, and think likely you entertain similar views to D.S. Dickinson who was also a Breckinridge Democrat, and of the same wing of the Democratic party with yourself, or at least I so considered it. I like his course or what I have heard of him.I believe the President to be honest and patriotic his course from the beginning of the rebellion, in the first place to restore the Union with all the rights to the south that they ever had under the Constitution. When that did not effect it in stopping the rebellion, he then issued his proclamation giving the rebellious states 100 days notice, that at the expiration of that time, those states who were in rebellion that their slaves should be free, and that no officer or soldier in the service of the U.S. should return or assist in returning slaves who had escaped from slavery to enjoy freedom.I believe that the proclamation was right, and I also believe that had Fremont's Proclamation been sustained in giving freedom to the slaves of rebels, and confiscating the property of rebels, it would have prevented thousands from joining the rebels, if for no better principle than holding their slaves and the rest of their property they would have been Union men. I think the President has missed in retaining some officers in high commands so long, so as it seems to me that they cared more for safety of the rebels, than their own troops, but the President had to reconcile his political opponents or tried to do so but some of them would not be recounseled..."William Freame Johnston (November 29, 1808 - October 25, 1872) was the 11th Governor of Pennsylvania from 1848 to 1852. A lawyer by training, Johnston became district attorney of Westmoreland County at the age of 21 in 1829. He was elected to the Pennsylvania state legislature and switched from the Democratic Party to the Whig Party in 1847 to run for the Pennsylvania Senate.He was named Senate Speaker in 1848 and, upon the resignation of Governor Francis Shunk, assumed the position of governor. Although, because of the transition, Johnston could have delayed the scheduled October elections, he chose to let them proceed and was narrowly elected to the position, defeating Democratic candidate Morris Longstreth by only 297 votes. Although he was part of the Free Soil faction of Whigs opposed to slavery, Johnston faced the federal Fugitive Slave Act and fought its enforcement in Pennsylvania. Johnston lost re-election to Democrat William Bigler in 1851.Johnston Commons on Penn State University is named for the former governor. His father built and operated the Kingston House in Unity Township, Pennsylvania. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.(From Wikipedia)
