Dr. Francis Lord’s own - Civil War LETTER & NUMBER DEVICE DISPLAY

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Dr. Francis Lord’s Civil War show 19 X 22 ¾ inch letter and number display board is offered here untouched just as the pioneer Civil War collector and author created it. The display offers 100 original Civil War period letters and numbers organized in sets according to size and style then wired (a few are glued) to a sheet of heavy art board and backed with a second art board sheet. Please note: We hope this piece will remain intact as a collection and have priced it at much less than half the going retail total of its individual parts hoping that will encourage purchase by an appreciative collector.

A breakdown of the display with approximate size is as follows, sizes starting at the top by row:

7- 1 7/16 inch LETTERS ; 4- 1 3/8, 1- 1 5/8, 1-2, 1 2/4 inch NUMBERS; 8 – 1 1/16 inch LETTERS; 9 – 1 inch NUMBERS; 8 -1 inch LETTERS; 7- 1 inch LETTERS; 13 – ¾ inch NUMBERS; 13 – ¾ inch LETTERS; 7- ¾ inch LETTERS; 10- ½ inch NUMBERS; 12-1/2 inch LETTERS



Of interest to the collector and preserved in our accompanying letter will be the fact that we acquired this piece several years ago when we were fortunate enough to purchase several groupings from the personal collection of our longtime friend, Dr. Francis Lord. A pioneer Civil War collector from a day when nearly no one else paid much attention to the details of many now valued Civil War collectable categories, Francis authored the widely known, multi volume reference, Lord’s CIVIL WAR COLLECTORS ENCYCLOPEDIA. While a lot of detailed knowledge has been gained as the interest and value of Civil War collectibles increased so dramatically over the years, Dr. Lord’s first and second volumes in particular and his Civil War Sutlers & Their Wares continue to offer valuable and reliable reference to Civil War collectors. (Use Lord in our search feature to find any other Lord collection items.) Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
