|Levi Biddle Halfstock - Tuscarawas Co., Ohio|
This is an excellent Ohio rifle by a top maker, in my opinion. Elegantly signed in script and in a ribbon on the top barrel flat, "L. Biddle." Very nicely engraved cap box and an equally nice engraved silver inlay in the cheekpiece with the owner's initials. 37" long barrel and .32 caliber rifled. Add a few bucks for shipping or meet me at a show.
|Original Longrifle ????|
I am seeking any suggestions on this rifle. It is stated to be a 45 cal. Locki is marked ASHWORTH Warranted. Initials on the top of the barrel are E.S. but I find no other marks. Metal is unmolested. Wood looks original but if it has been "cleaned" it was long long ago. Brass has been polished. BBl length is 46.25 inches and overall length is about 61 inches. It is an exceptionally heavy barrel. Other photos available if needed. Would be honored to have thoughts on the rifle and/or potential maker.

| Neck Knife|
It measures 11-1/2" overall. It retains a very sharp edges both sides of blade. The knife overall measures 11-1/2" with a 6-1/2", unmarked blade. The blade has seen use but no abuse. There are no cracks, active rust, edge chips or bends. The hardwood handle is round and tapered and likely the original handle to a tool of some sort. The grip has no cracks and is snug to the blade. The symmetrical leather scabbard has been dyed black and made to be hung around the neck by means of a rawhide strip. The knife is carried deep in the scabbard with just the end of the handle showing. The scabbards from this area are often decorated with bead work. This one is plane and unadorned. The scabbard is dry and stiff and has taken on the shape of the knife. There are areas where the twine stitching is broken but nothing too significant. This piece dates to the 1800's.

|Looking for the furniture to this Jaeger|
I bought this original Jaeger rifle a couple years ago. The gentleman that I had purchased the rifle from had already sold off the original brass parts from it but had a set of castings made from the originals, which I was able to use to have it restored. I would love to find the original brass parts from this gun to return it to it's original condition. Thanks!

|Small Screwtip Price Reduced|
When I first saw this, I thought it was just a small horn with a wire repair at the tip. The owner then showed me that it was a screw tip. It was represented to me as an original horn and I have no reason to think otherwise. I did run it by all of the experts at Dixons a few years back and they all seemed to agree that it was both original and novel. I haven't seen another this small.
Asking $125.00 plus shipping
