Extra nice Lanz, Owen made leather holster for the long barrel 7 1/2 inch Colt 45. Very strong leather, no cracks, stud tight, holes not widened, all stitched seams tight. One of the better holsters I have had. Lanz, Owen& Co, Chicago, was the only contractor that the US Army used to make 3010 holsters for the conflict with Spain. 1000 in 1898 and 2010 in 1899. H.K. inspector stamp on flap. The leather is much stronger and thicker than the Rock Island made holsters. The long flap is used to go over the web belt. This holster dates precisely to the Spanish American War. The actual Colt in the photo is for perspective only and not for sale,
Beautiful, starred M1902 issue Campaign hat purchased from Walter Budd by a fellow collector on 5/2/2011. Walter included extensive documentation that will be passed along to the buyer. The hat was the property of Colonel E. P. Easterbrook, Chief of Chaplains, US Army. He was a member of New York’s 202 regiment and eventually found himself in the 17th US Infantry. Along the way he served with many units including Philippine service. In 1903 his unit was fighting with Moros on Mindanao. Later Datto Djimbangan. He served in the occupation of Germany after World War one. His name is written on the hat band. Excellent quality hat, including hat band and superb black ribbon. Please don’t turn the band inside out, it is an issue hat. It isn’t torn but will be with those inquisitive hands. Nice dark black color. Included is Easterbrook’s silver chaplain’s cross. The top wire fastener has broken off, only bottom one remains, it holds very well. The M1898 Officer’s black and white bullion hat cord and is the original cord. No issues or problems with the hat. The documentation will be included and is very interesting. Perfect Spanish American War, Philippine Insurrection. Museum quality.

Used on the Winchester Lee rifle and also modified to fit the Winchester lever action military carbine.
100% original and QMD issue campaign hat to a 12th Minnesota soldier. Super example of a Spanish American War hat. Personal art work around the hat, looks like someone later might have tried to enhance some of the lines. I am not seeing the soldier’s name but it might be Decker. It has the original hat ribbon as well. I have NOT looked under the hat band because it is fragile. It will probably tell the story. I am unable to accept returns of this hat if you damage the band and want to return it. It really speaks for itself and if you know campaign hats, you will know that this is the real deal.
Simply one of the nicest tan uniform with trousers that I have ever owned. The tunic appears to have had little or no use, trousers just a little wear. 15th Minnesota Volunteer Infantry 1898 to 1899. Custom made tunic retaining the original deep tan with no fading and deep blue corduroy material trousers with button legs to fit into the high boot. Tunic has all of the original “I” Infantry buttons made by M.C. Lilley. Trousers have all metal buttons and clasp, one small pocket brass button is missing, the other a small one with the “I” remains. No name at all inside. Collar insignia bullion is outstanding. Shoulder straps retain a deep blue and the bullion insignia is also outstanding. Further research is possible on this officer for this very short term unit. Photographing this uniform was difficult due to the lighting. The nice dark tan show the actual color. SALE PENDING

No markings on back. Looks to have been mounted in a photo album at one time. Strong photo board, picture starting to lighted a bit. Scans might be just a bit darker than actual image. Priced accordingly. I will place in a box for USPS transit.
As described in Cavalry manuals, Rock Island Arsenal made stirrups for the Whitman pattern of 1878 Officer’s saddle. The German silver stirrups were made in small quantity. RIA made the more common leather hooded stirrups as well. Note that these are marked 1909 and each have their original tread. Great price.
