JUST ADDED ON 6/10 - CORINTH, MISSISSIPPI / JOHN MARKS COLLECTION - A Heavy Brass Lock Face with Maker's Mark with Marks' Identification found in 1968
A heavy brass lock face with maker mark and Marks painted identification "CR + 4 4-20-68" (CR stood for Corinth - found on April 20, 1968). Marks was a famous Memphis collector who carefully documented all of the relics that he found (with painted identification which included location and date) during thirty years of relic hunting. His collection was well-known and relics from it were featured in North South Trader and Francis Lord's Civil War Collectors' Encyclopedia. Marks passed away a few years ago. I will include a letter containing the provenance information.
