We are selling a large selection of items from a lifelong collector of military, history, and war related items.
We are passing along his descriptions and history of the items. He was an expert, but details may be incorrect in some cases.
We are not professional appraisers of condition, these are vintage and antique items, they may be dirty or show wear. Please check the pictures for condition, completeness, and what is included.
We did not perform any cleaning or restorations and left the item just as found. The cap is fragile.
Very nice color and detail. Great for collectors or display. A true museum piece!
We want these items to go to people who will appreciate and care for the items. We would prefer to not deal with extra picky or difficult buyers for these items.
Please add us to your favorite sellers list and check back for lots of new historic items. Thank you for your interest.
U.S. Militia Model 1832 Light Infantry Shako.In 2010 after selling one of my guns I had enough money to buy this shako at sale from Cowans sales. It came with the insignia and accoutrements. It is a beautiful leather helmet. It is very delicate and should be handled with care.
