EXCEPTIONAL HIGH GRADE STATUE HILT PRESENTATION CIVIL WAR SWORD TO LT. COL GEORGE SANGSTER 47TH NEW YORK INFANTRY.

Lot 1377: EXCEPTIONAL HIGH GRADE STATUE HILT PRESENTATION CIVIL WAR SWORD TO LT. COL GEORGE SANGSTER 47TH NEW YORK INFANTRY.

by James D. Julia

March 15, 2015, 10:00 AM EST

Fairfield, ME, USA

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

Description: This is a beautiful and among the highest grade Civil War Presentation sword you will find. The hilt is most unusual showing a bare breasted winged figure of "Victory" holding a laurel wreath above her head. Opposite side of grip is highly figured with a central motif of a patriotic U.S. shield with 13 stars and 13 stripes. Above the statue of Victory is a most unusual pommel cap showing a feathered slouch hat atop a telescope, map and a sash. The hilt has fine floral detail with a large 2-1/4" oval frame of red semi-precious stones surrounding a heraldic American eagle with down spread wings holding arrows and olive branch in either talon. The blade has wonderful fine detail including "ONE and INSEPARABLE" in central panel with other patriotic motifs including panoply of arms, "US" and an up-spread American eagle above ribbon which says "E Pluribus Unum" etched panels exhibit two colors of gold with bright lustrous white polished central elements. Scabbard mounts have raised relief patriotic motifs including a full figured soldier standing before two American flags on drag. Mounts are engraved including the versos which is an unusual and rare feature. The eleven line inscription, finely engraved between throat and top mount on reverse of scabbard reads; "Presented to Lieut. Col. Geo. Sangster 47" N.Y.S.M. by the Officers at the Camp of Paroled prisoners / Annapolis Md. / Nov. 25, 1862" "Comte; Capt. F.J. Keffer / 71st Pa. Vols. / 1st Lt. J.I.J. Kiersted / 66 N.Y. VOLS." Lt. Col. Sangster of the 47th New York Infantry was originally from Brooklyn and was in charge at time of presentation of the prison camp at Fort McHenry known by many as the "Baltimore Bastille". Those imprisoned here came from all classes of the civilian population and military ranks which was uncommon in this day as generally P.O.W. camps were segregated for officers only or for enlisted men only. Civilian combatants and political prisoners were generally in state prisons. Those imprisoned at Fort McHenry included a former Governor of Maryland, members of the House of Delegates, Congressman, ministers, doctors, judges, lawyers, Confederate enlisted men, officers, chaplains, surgeons and guerrillas. Unlike high death tolls at other prisons, the death toll at Fort McHenry was only 15 throughout the war. It is of note that one of the committee members who presented the sword, Capt. Francis J. Keefer of 71st Pennsylvania (Bakers California Regiment), was wounded at the Battle of Balls Bluff, was part of prisoner exchange at Fort McHenry and became the provost marshal at Annapolis, Maryland. There are varying reports of the treatment of prisoners at this facility and varying accounts on the competency of George Sangster but his fellow officers indeed presented him with a magnificent sword. PROVENANCE: Ex-Norm Flayderman Collection. CONDITION: Fine to very fine overall. 32" blade retains most of its orig gold background on 14" patriotic etched panels. Blade is bright overall retaining most of its orig polish and luster with areas of staining and pin prick pitting near point. Blade has no retailer's mark but blade has crisp mark of "Clauberg, Solinger" on ricasso. Sword retains its orig scalloped red cloth covered leather protective washer. Brass hilt, pommel and scabbard mounts are sharp and crisp with good detail and traces of gilt in protected areas with areas of patina where cleaned. Grip retains virtually all its silver wash. Knucklebow has gap where originally braised and pinned just before bifurcation into basket hilt. The 29 bezel mounted red stones surrounding eagle in hilt are all present and very good. Silver plated brass scabbard body is sound and solid with several small dings, dents and nicks between middle mount and drag. Drag has similar small dents, dings and nicks especially on verso but engraved panoply of arms is still well discerned. Inscription is well discerned as is other engraving on mounts. Applied relief decorations to scabbard mounts are fine and complete. 4-55339

Gold medals were presented to Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, and French ministers were given silver versions. The design appeared on textiles, in books, and on coins, including the obverse of the penny of 1793. (See David Hackett Fischer. "Liberty and Freedom: A Visual History of America's Founding Ideas." Pp. 137-139.)Below lower border: "Dessine et Grave d'apres la Medaille de Dupre par J. B. Bradel, Citoyen-de St. Malo."

Danvers, MA, USA

Estimated Price: $50 - $100

Description: Early 20th century vintage silver print mug shots. The use of photography in the justice system became prevalent later in the 19th century, as they felt the documentation of physical traits could help predict criminal tendencies.

Coupled with a system of identifying facial measurements, this tracking system was adopted by the Chicago Police Department in 1894. Pencil notation on verso states: "10383 Throl, William F." Typed print reads "Missouri State Penitentiary," and identifies the prisoner as "Wm. Armstrong...Rec'd from St. Louis City 6-21-1923 to serve 10 years for crime of Robbery 1st. 1 term Folsom, Falif Prison. As Wm Throl. #1383 U.S.P. Leavenworth, Kansas, 4 yrs for Sodomy." From the collection of Police Chief Michael Webb (1950-2009). Webb joined the Vinita Park, Missouri police force in 1974 and served until his death in 2009, during which time he purchased crime artifacts from relatives of criminals and law officers.

by Heritage Auctions

March 28, 2015, 1:00 PM CST

Dallas, TX, USA

Estimated Price: $600 - $1,200

Description: World War II Propaganda (H.M. Stationery Office, London, England, 1940s). Auxiliary Territory Service Poster (19" X 29") "Join the ATS." Doreen Murphy became known as "The Blonde Bombshell" after posing for this poster, which graced the walls of many U.K. recruiting offices during World War II. Designed by Abram Games (b. 1914), who became Britain's only official war poster artist, the piece was eventually deemed to "frivolous" by Parliament and replaced with another version. Games created more than 100 official posters during the war years, and although this one featuring Ms. Murphy was pulled from circulation, the originals are resurfacing. In 2013, England's National Army Museum acquired a collection of Games' signed work from his daughter. Light edge wear along the top, diagonal creases, and a pinpoint center crossfold separation. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.

Bauman was a member of the 'Dunera Boys,' and used his artistic talents while interned to assist in producing the celebrated Hay Hagadah. Teenage Wilhelm Theodor Baumann fled Austria alone, settling in Swansea, Wales, but after some 18 months there, he and other young German-speaking Jewish refugees were suspected by the British Government as Nazi sympathizers and in turn, were sent to an interment camp in Hay, Australia in 1940 via the British passenger ship HMT Dunera. The 57 days of the voyage were a nightmare of inhuman conditions and brutal mistreatment.Hay is a small town in the western Riverina region of south-western New South Wales, Australia. It was utilized as a prisoner-of-war and internment center, due in no small measure to its extremely isolated location. Bauman worked in the kitchen of the camp and regularly wrote letters to the British military offering his services. In 1942, he was released and settled on the farm of Mr. Feiglin in Shepparton, Victoria. Bauman petitioned to enter the United States hoping to reunite with his parents who had found sanctuary in Shreveport, Louisiana and with whom he managed to stay in contact through the war. Summer 1947, Bauman arrived in San Francisco and made his way to Louisiana, eventually settling in New York City and finally retiring to Englewood, New Jersey.Bauman's papers here contain an abundance of historical artifacts all of which gives us an intimate view of his life throughout his extensive wanderings.v.p, v.d.
