These would also make a great back-drop for a Western firearms display. These early buckskins were usually worn for years at a time and were never washed and most ended up in less than desirable condition and this may be the finest set we have ever seen.

LOT OF 2: 1904-12 U.S.M.C. DRESS HAT AND TUNIC.

Lot #2040 (Sale Order 2040 of 463)

Lot consists of 1904-1912 USMC Dress Hat and Tunic. This style of dress tunic and hat were worn by the United States Marine Corp from 1904-12 when they were heavily involved in the so called Banana Wars in Central and South America. Control of this area began with the establishment and the successful landing at Guantanamo and the readiness of the Marines for the Spanish–American War were in contrast to the slow mobilization of the United States Army in the war. In 1900, the General Board of the United States Navy decided to give the Marine Corps primary responsibility for the seizure and defense of advanced naval bases. The Marine Corps formed an expeditionary battalion to be permanently based in the Caribbean, which subsequently practiced landings in 1902 in preparation for a war with Germany over their siege in Venezuela. CONDITION: The tunic is in excellent condition retaining all original buttons and shows little signs of wear or fading. The hat has the original insignia with the Warnock, New York stencil. A fine and rare offering. Condition: Dimensions:

MODEL 1872 ANDREWS FOLDING CAVALRY CAMPAIGN HAT.

Lot #2101 (Sale Order 2101 of 463)

Once of the scarcest pieces of federal regulation headgear, this style hat was worn by both officers and enlisted men during the Great Sioux War of 1876. It is often associated as the hat most likely worn by Custer's troopers on that fateful day in June 1876. Manufactured by Pettibone under a US Government contract, these have a very limited survival rate due to their limited popularity, fragility of the design, material of the hat, and the harsh conditions in which they were used. You can count how many have surfaced for sale in the last 20 years on one hand. CONDITION: Shows period wear overall, but retains its black grosgrain band around the base of the crown. The four japanned metal hooks are all in place as well as 75% of the silk ribbon treatment along the leading edges of the brim. PROVENANCE: Dr. Frank Wagner cavalry museum collection.

USMC MEXICAN WAR HAT.

Lot #2107 (Sale Order 2107 of 463)

The Mexican–American War was also known in the United States as the Mexican War and in Mexico as the American intervention in Mexico. It followed in the wake of the 1845 American annexation of the Republic of Texas, not formally recognized by the Mexican government, disputing the Treaties of Velasco signed by Antonio López de Santa Anna after the Texas Revolution a decade earlier. In 1845, newly elected U.S. President James K. Polk sent troops to the disputed area and a diplomatic mission to Mexico. After Mexican forces attacked American forces, Polk cited this in his request that Congress declare war. The 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo ended the war and enforced the Mexican Cession of the northern territories of Alta California and Santa Fe de Nuevo México to the United States. This is a rare Marine Corp cap referred to as a Dragoon Wheel Cap from that time period. It consists of blue wool body, leather band and visor with USM badge with Eagle and anchor band buttons. There are no retailer or maker stencils inside but does have the leather inner band and cotton liner. CONDITION: Good, complete, with a few very small moth nips. Leather visor, sweatband, and front strap are tender with crazing but complete. Condition: Dimensions:

127th Regiment United States Colored Troops (USCT) Regimental Battle Flag 127th Regiment United States Colored Troops (USCT) Regimental Battle Flag

127th Regiment United States Colored Troops (USCT) Regimental Battle Flag

Lot #2161 (Sale Order 2161 of 463)

Simply stated this U.S. Colored Troops (USCT) regimental battle flag is a vital and unique part of American history. Likely the last remaining Pennsylvania USCT battle flag, painted by the pioneering and influential artist David Bustill Bowser, it has significance and impact unlike any other. With meticulous attention to detail in restoration, the vibrant banner represents the epic struggle, valor, and patriotism of the African-American troops during the Civil War. The Regiment The 127th USCT Regiment was one of 11 African-American regiments raised in Pennsylvania through the Union League by the Supervisory Committee for the Enlistment of Colored Troops. This regiment was formed from enlisted and drafted African-American males from the State of Pennsylvania, to serve one, two, and three years. Recruited in the Delaware Valley Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and surrounding region, the regiment organized and trained at Camp William Penn in Chelten Hills or Camptown (now La Mott), Pennsylvania; today Cheltenham Township, just northwest of Philadelphia between August 23 and September 10, 1864. The Commanding Officer was Colonel Benjamin F. Tracy. This was Pennsylvania’s only training camp for African American soldiers, and was the largest of 18 such camps in operation during the Civil War. After the short training period the regiment was deployed. Upon arriving at the front In City Point, Virginia in September, 1864, the regiment was attached to 1st Brigade, 3rd Division, 10th Corps, Army of the James, in November, 1864. The regiment transferred to the 2nd Brigade, 3rd Division, 10th Corps, in December, 1864. Finally, it was sent to the 2nd Brigade, 2nd Division, 25th Corps and the Department of Texas, in October, 1865. The regiment was primarily used to construct fortifications and perform guard duty. The official Army register of Colored Troops shows that the only battle in which this regiment participated, was at Deep Bottom, Virginia on April 2nd, 1865; and saw one man killed in this battle. More apparently died due to disease. In addition, combat service records indicate that the regiment was involved in siege operations against Petersburg, VA and Richmond, VA from September 1864 to April, 1865. The regiment saw action in the Battle of Chaffin’s Farm, New Market Heights September 29-30, 1864; Fort Harrison September 29, 1864; Darbytown Road October 13, 1864; Battle of Fair Oaks October 27-28, 1864; and duty in trenches north of the James River before Richmond until March, 1865. The regiment moved to Hatcher's Run March 27-28, 1865; the Appomattox Campaign March 28-April 9, 1865; Hatcher's Run March 29-31, 1865; Fall of Petersburg April 2, 1865, and the Pursuit of Lee April 3-9, 1865. The regiment was present at the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865. After the close of hostilities in the east, the regiment was sent to Brazos Santiago, Texas, June and July, 1865; and performed duties at various Mexican frontier points on the Rio Grande River until October, 1865. On September 11, 1865, the regiment was consolidated into a battalion of three companies, and the men and officers whose term of service had expired, were discharged. The battalion was mustered out of service on October 20, 1865. The Flag Artist The flag was painted by Famed Philadelphia African-American artist David Bustill Bowser, born in Philadelphia January 16, 1820 to fugitive slave Jeremiah Bowser. Jeremiah had married into the prominent Bustill family, whose patriarch was himself born a slave but purchased his own freedom. Quoting from the David Bustill Bowser Historical Marker site of the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, During the Civil War, hundreds of thousands of soldiers, and thousands more civilians who witnessed their parades, were familiar with the magnificent battle flags that David Bustill Bowser designed for eleven African-American regiments. When opposition to the choice of Bowser as the artist to paint the flags developed within the Supervisory Committee of the camp, Bowser persuaded John Forney, a powerful Republican Philadelphia politician and newspaper owner, to argue that "he is a poor man, and certainly professes very remarkable talent. He has been active in the cause and is himself a colored man, and it seems to me there would be peculiar hardship in taking away this little job from him and giving it to a wealthy house."

This medal appears to have been auctioned off by "Alexander Historical Auctions" in 2016 and then sold to the consignor in 2017. Some of the documentation provided as provenance includes the 1971 auction catalog from Mohawk Arms, a history of the hall in Kelheim, and assorted correspondence.
