  1. I have a Harpers Ferry M1805 Pistol that I am putting in a wall mounted display box. Is there any problem using felt for the inside back of the box covering? I can't find 100% cotton felt so it would have to be cotton and synthetic blend. TIA!!
  2. Anyone know of a good US Army uniform reference for the early 1800s? I'm trying to assemble a complete history reference to go with my Harpers Ferry M1805 Pistol. TIA
  3. Very very nice. Thanks for taking the time to share!
  4. Congratulations. Did you know your father had collected these items or was it news to you?

    Reference Help

    I'm trying to locate a reference which details in written description and pictures US Army issued uniforms, accoutrements holsters and/or powder horns for the 1800-1812 era. ANY help would be appreciated. TIA
  7. Mikie, Sounds like you made great progress! Please keep us posted and good luck. Seems as if we have all enjoyed your project.
  8. Really like your AIRBORNE items. They are bold.
  9. Will you post a picture AFTER your first session? TIA
  10. You've upgraded what was already a nice dis[play. Great pieces of history.
  11. Thanks to all of you for your insight and comments! Ken
  12. I recently obtained a Harpers Ferry 1805 Pistol. I am seriously considering displaying it in my home office (as opposed to keeping it secure in my gun safe). I know fire and theft are considerations (have monitored intrusion detection and fire system) and I need to be aware of UV exposure. What other pros and cons do I need to consider before deciding to go ahead and have the pistol on the wall versus in the safe? TIA
  13. Thanks for sharing. What a nice example sword.
  14. I recently purchased a Harpers Ferry M1805 Pistol. The pistol is 17 inches long and I'm having difficulty finding a shadow box long enough to display it. I want to hang the box on a wall. IF anyone knows where I might find a nice shadow box in which to display this firearm OR another way to display it mounted on a wall I'd appreciate any help. TIA
