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: $60,000 - $90,000

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.

Virginia City Chief of Police and Fire Badge and Handcuffs

Lot 4513: Virginia City Chief of Police and Fire Badge and Handcuffs

by Holabird Western Americana

April 18, 2015, 8:00 AM PST

Reno, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $1,500 - $4,000

Description: This fabulous gold-plated brass badge came to us directly from the great-grandson of the officer! Please see photo (C.A. McGuigan is circled). Front of badge reads: CHIEF/ C.A. McGUIGAN/ 1910/ VIRGINIA CITY, Reverse has maker's mark: C.D. REESE/ 122 NASSAU ST./ NEW YORK. Reese is a well-known maker of badges from this period. Badge has the expected wear (rubbing of gold-plating) patterns on the front. Measures 3" x 2.25." Also included with the badge are a set of handcuffs from the family. Given that many members of the family were involved in law enforcement, it is uncertain if these particular handcuffs belonged to C.A. McGuigan. Handcuffs do not come with key. Though born in Illinois in 1876, Charles Arthur McGuigan developed deep Nevada roots when he arrived to the Comstock. He married Clara Kenny in Gold Hill on April 22, 1897. Kenny grew-up on the Comstock and her father was a blacksmith for some of the leading mines. On the 1900 census, Charles is listed as a teamster in Gold Hill. In 1903, he appears on the Mardi Gras committee for the Comstock Carnival in Virginia City. At some point he became involved in mining, as evidenced by the 1909 issue of Miner's Magazine which lists him as the Gold Hill union chapter president for the Western Federation of Miners. His promotion to Chief of Police in Virginia City appears in a December 26, 1909 issue of the Nevada State Journal underneath the headline "Shake-up in Storey County." He replaced Dan O'Hagan as Chief of Police and of the Fire Department. It is unclear how long he held this post, though he is referenced as "Chief McGuigan of the Divide" in a Sept. 28,1913 NSJ article. By 1918, he has left the police force and gone back into mining: his World War I registration card lists him as a miner for the Ontario Silver Mining Co. in Park City, Utah, though his wife is still in Gold Hill. By 1920, he listed in the census as a "quartz miner," with 3 sons and 2 daughters. McGuigan left the Comstock in 1925 for Reno.

The left side of the frame (ahead of the trigger) has the bold monogram: "TBB."

As Sheriff, Bash was involved in a shootout during which mob machine gunner's in the act of murdered gangster Ferris Anthon on the early morning of August 12, 1933. Bash killed two of the assassins and arrested a third assassin. The arrested gunman was Kansas City political boss Tom Pendergast's enforcer, Charles Gargotta. "Boss Tom" Pendergast was a patron of the early political career of Harry S. Truman who, as County Judge, in the aftermath of Gargotta's arrest, cut the sheriff's budget.

Sir William Johnson Autograph Letter Signed

Lot 49004: Sir William Johnson Autograph Letter Signed

by Heritage Auctions

April 9, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $1,000 - $1,500

Description: Sir William Johnson Autograph Letter Signed "W Johnson." Two and one-half pages of a bifolium, Johnson Hall [New York], January 29, 1772. Sir William Johnson, the Superintendent of Indian Affairs for the Northern Colonies of British America from 1755 until his death two years after writing this letter, writes to Governor John Penn Jr., congratulating Penn on his new position as governor of Pennsylvania. Only nine years after the close of the French and Indian War, Sir Johnson also informs Penn about important Indian matters. Age-toned paper; separations at some folds, some have been repaired. Johnson writes in part: "[I] take this first opportunity . . . to congratulate you on your taking upon you the government of Pensilvania which I do with great sincerity from the Esteem I have for all the Branches of your Family. . . . The Shawnees, Delawares, Munsies &c have been, and are to be considered as Dependants on the Five Nations, and having nothing to do with the Western Indians farther than in an intercourse common with all Indians in time of Peace. But as they resided at a Distance from the chief residences of the Five Nations, I thought it necessary to appoint a Deputy for the District of the Ohio &c in which they were comprehended. During the War and afterwards for a time they partook liberally of his Majestys Bounty, and another officer was appointed as a commissary to inspect the Trade at Fort Pitt & prevent abuses, but the Expenses . . . were thought too great by the Crown, and therefore by his Majesty orders the commissary were discontinued." The letter continues with content about the expenses of the Department of Indian Affairs. Johnson also informs Penn that "an proper officer is now at the Ohio, to hear them [Indians] when ever they have any business; So, that this application to you is only from a few People, who want more favours than they deserve, or than government inclines to bestow, not only without the knowledge but contrary to the inclination of the Five Nations, as they are a busy People they but too often make us of, because that they are connected with Some Emigrants from the Senecas, & some others of the Five Nations who have removed from under the influence of their chiefs to the Ohio." The letter ends by discussing trade. Sir William Johnson had served as Major General in the British forces during the French and Indian War. His estate in the Mohawk River Valley covered over 400,000 acres. Johnson Hall, built in 1763 and located northwest of the present city of Johnstown, New York, was Johnson's home until his death in 1774. Molly Brant, sister of Mohawk leader Joseph Brant, was Johnson's common law wife and would aid the Loyalist cause during the upcoming Revolutionary War; they had eight children. From the Donald P. Dow Collection.
