It is all about the provenance! When I began collecting Civil War artifacts back when I was a child, I was always much more interested in the recovery location of an artifact than the rarity or value of the artifact itself. As a historian, I have made every effort to acquire artifacts with solid provenance. The intent of this website is to offer Civil War relics with a historical connection so that the collector can feel secure in the knowledge that they are getting something from a specific event or place. Each item includes a provenance letter with all of the details that I know about the piece.
Look for items by type including bullets, artillery, buttons, plates, dug relics, and non-dug.
The catalog is updated once a week – usually on Wednesday. You can browse the artifacts based upon recovery location or item type. You can also choose to look at all of the items that have been recently listed (the “New” section) or a section of clearance items. Enjoy browsing the site and don’t hesitate to shoot me an email with any questions or comments. Thanks for stopping by!
