BEACHWOOD, Ohio - March 31, 2023 - PRLog -- A live-online auction featuring a marvelous collection of Civil War and early Americana items out of Hermitage, Pennsylvania will be held on Friday, April 14th, at 12 noon Eastern time, by Neue Auctions. All 133 lots are fresh to the market and most have been in the Heritage collection for over 30 years. Absentee and phone bidding is available on select lots.

"I'm not very much into guns and swords, but I love the history of the rifles, how they're made, and the artistic merits of the decorations," said Cynthia Maciejewski of Neue Auctions. She added, however, that the vast majority of expected top lots are those very items – guns and swords. Just a few of the antique rifles expected to spark fierce bidding wars are as follows:
  • An 1863 Colt Civil War contract rifle musket with an engraved side plate, percussion strike, steel ramrod and walnut stock with burl, stamped throughout, 55 ½ inches long (est. $2,000-$3,000).
  • An 1863 Maynard conversion of a US model musket with engraved side plate, percussion strike, a steel ramrod, walnut stock and burl, 55 ½ inches in length (est. $1,500-$2,000).
  • A Jenk's flintlock musket dated 1813, with a walnut wood stock, bright steel, steel ramrod and initialed and stamped, 56 ¼ inches long (est. $1,000-$1,500).

Revolvers will feature a refinished Civil War Whitney .36 caliber Navy percussion lock revolver, marked USA with an anchor mark and initials (JRG) and walnut wood grips (est. $900-$1,200); and a Civil War-era Remington and Sons (N.Y.) new model Army revolver, standard, well-used and worn but functional, with walnut wood grips and many inspection marks (est. $900-$1,200).

The antique swords category will include a circa 1840-1850 non-regulation Infantry officer's sword by J.H. Lambert (Philadelphia), nitre blue on an etched blade, with a leather grip and wire, 29 inches long (est. $900-$1,200); and a model 1832 foot artillery sword with leather sheath and scaled design grip, an eagle on the pommel and an engraved blade (est. $800-$1,200).

Internet bidding will be hosted on and Live gallery previews will be held April 3rd-13th (weekdays only), from 10-5 Eastern time each day. The Neue Auctions showroom is located at 23533 Mercantile Road (Suite #100) in Beachwood, Ohio.
