CONFEDERATE P-53 ENFIELD BY E. P. BOND
SINCLAIR HAMILTON & COMPANY CONTRACT
INSPECTED BY ISAAC CURTIS

This is an unusually nice condition Confederate Enfield.  It has a bright bore with strong rifling and is totally complete.  The metal has barely turned brown but is extremely smooth with virtually no pitting.  The stock is unusually clean and sharp with a light finish.  There are no vice marks, carvings or other mutilations.  The Confederate Inspector Isaac Curtis's cartouche and block letter stamp are found in the stock, opposite the lock.  The Sinclair Hamilton & Company mark, which is a Crown over S over HC over a Fletched Arrow is found on top of the stock just above the butt plate tang.  There is a darkening of the wood on the right side between the two lower barrel bands.  The wood is not eroded and I suspect this is from the gun being mounted over a fireplace.  The soot from the fireplace worked its way into the grain of the wood.  The gun is intact with its original ramrod, swivels and barrel bands which have the nuts on the ends of the bolts.  An unusually nice Confederate Enfield.  SOLD!!
