Original, Early American Powder Horn

This is an absolutely wonderful horn. It exhibits ample size and early construction techniques. The spout is hand carved octagonal and retains the remains of the original leather strap from its period of use. All the surfaces on this horn are ABSOLUTELY UNTOUCHED. Great color, great patina, great overall conformation and great condition! The horn has a natural curve and twist shape, which is highly desirable as it allows the horn to be carried tightly against the body. As an example of a pure, Colonial American Powderhorn, this horn is as good as it gets. It measures almost 14 inches on the outside curve. More photos are available on our PERIOD ANTIQUES page of our website at www.cabincreek.net.

Origianl J. Sheets Rifle

This is a very nice original John Sheets rifle made in the 1820-1830 period. It was converted to percussion a very long time ago by simply replacing the lock. There is cap erosion at the breech enough to suggest that the conversion was done early in the gun's life. The forward lock screw is now a wood screw that has hand filed threads. The forend was broken at one time at the third thimble from the muzzle and a repair was done which is solid. The finish appears to be original and has not been cleaned or refinished. There are seven silver inlays on the gun, six are acorn styled. John Sheets and a few other gunmakers in the area were fond of using inlays of this style. The trigger guard has an interesting repair to the casting that was done when the rifle was built. The barrel is 42 4/3" long and about .43 caliber. Two of the wedge tennons have been replaced along with two of the wedges. The patchbox is a typical style used by Sheets with the four petal flower finial. The ramrod appears to be original to the gun and still has the long iron tip which is threaded for a wiper. The triggers have the typical lateral adjustment screw used by Sheets and they still work fine. The lock is marked 'GOULCHER' and works fine as well. It has no half cock which is typical for percussion locks of the time period. Overall this rifle is in a very desirable condition with very minimal restoration done to it. I'm not a collector as much as a builder so I am willing to sell this gun. The price it is listed at is what I feel it is worth but I know how the economy is now too so I will consider just about any reasonable offers.

Neat Halfstock Percussion Rifle with Bag and Horn Set

Antique percussion halfstock rifle from Huntington, WV. 40" barrel, .36 caliber with an interesting wooden under rib, fancy poured pewter nose-cap and classic capbox. About 57" overall. Some burn-through to the hammer at the contact point but the set trigger and main trigger function. Some dings and bruises. Barrel is about 1" across the flats. Gun could use a little TLC, but good condition overall. The bag is a contemporary one mated to an antique horn. The bag measures approximately 9" wide by 8" tall. Has a bag strap and horn strap, both with hand forged iron buckles. The horn is very old and has a fine linear crack on the backside. Also, attached is a thong with a vent pick and horsehair pan brush attached. The bag is lined in a classic white and blue striped pillow ticking that has been aged to look very old. Great set....this all would display beautifully! More photos available on request. $725 shipped.

Original Wallet and Large Horn

For your consideration are two very nice original pieces. The first is a very large double curve horn that measures 20" on the curve with a 4" plug with great patina and facets as it narrows towards the spout. Awesome Horn!! The second piece is an early to mid 19th century wallet that measures 5" X 7" folded and 12" X 7" layed open (not including the strap). Includes a nib holder with St. Louis marked on it and a inventory number as one might see on a museum piece. I believe both marks were added long after the wallet was made. For both of these great pieces I am asking $322.00. Separately the horn is $254.00 and the wallet is $103.00. I can send more pictures if needed. Payment options available. Thanks for looking.
