1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    For any Civil War collectors out there offered here is a Model of 1860 Variation Civil War Cavalry Officer's Saber in overall very nice condition for its age. The maker, Phillip Justice of Philadelphia held contracts for 13,685 cavalry sabers and 1,050 light artillery sabers in 1861 and this example is the rarest type as the blade was not imported. The scabbard is also in great shape for its age displaying typical wear and patina along with the customary indent soldiers used to reduce rattling of the sword while sheathed. Asking $2,500 including shipping and insurance. Please e-mail me with any questions and thank you for your interest! artgsc@aol.com

    Were there serialized? Any record, if so, of the officer which purchased said weapon? A very nice piece of United States history during our darkest hour before a glorious sunrise of reunion in our great land. It seems you did well as it's caretaker for however long you had this piece n your possession....Cya

    Sabers from this maker were not serialized so without peripheral provenance such as a documented chain of possession through family journals and the like, there is no way to tell who the saber was actually issued to. The designation “Officer's Saber” refers to the style of this weapon rather than who owned it…… though customarily these would be assigned to officers only. The style (arched first line) of the P.S. Justice lettering on the blade shows that it is one of the few that were made without using a blade imported from Europe. artgsc@aol.com

    Occassionally you will find a name and rank stamped inro the backstrap or thick end of the blade. Bulge.
