A remnant of one of our many Civil War Show trips South in years past is this neat little pairing of a period wallet ink inscribed Capt. R. Collier 7th Kentucky Cavy. and a period Joseph Rogers Ink scraper inscribed R. Collier with a scrimshaw style entwined R.C. monogram. Robert Collier was a forty-one year old resident of Buckeye, Garrard County, Kentucky when on August 4, 1862 he enlisted and was commissioned on August 16, 1862 as Captain of Co. H 7th Kentucky Cavalry. Capt. Collier was promoted to Major on May 29,1863 and transferred from command of Co. H Field & Staff of the Regiment. He remained with the 7th Kentucky Cavalry until February 21, 1865. Collier’s wallet is interesting beyond the inscription in that its usual long form was cut in half with the raw end stitched so as to shorten its length to one half. Clearly a period alteration the short wallet would fit nicely in the inner breast pocket of a cavalry jacket. The leather wallet remains soft and pliable with solid stitching. The bone handled ink scraper or eraser is maker marked JOSEPH ROGERS & SONS – S. NORFOLK St., SHEFFIELD. (Rogers opened his shop at this location in 1825.) With good evidence of period use and honing of its blade the bone grip shows evidence of consistent use over a clearly period scratch engraved script inscription in the same hand as the wallet identification. Set aside for years in our accumulation of neat stuff mostly due to our fascination with the interesting period alteration of the wallet, it is time to move it along to an appreciative new home. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
