Antique Boars Tusk – WALKING STICK - 2nd Ohio Cavalry – Civil War Veteran



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.

Aside from its association with Dr. Noble, this desirable antique cane will best be described here by our photo illustrations. The large boar tusk head remains solid with a rich age patina that comes only with lots of period handling and decades in time. The figured and monogramed HNB cap is of sterling silver and is so marked with a tiny stylized eagle and 1825 F. While its ferrule tip has been lost the period classic natural malacca shaft remains in beautiful original condition again with that appealing age patina that early cane enthusiasts appreciate. Of special interest to the Civil War historian especially the Ohio enthusiast will be that this attractive stick emanated from the Ohio estate of to Dr. Havvilah B. Noble (1833-1891). Acquired some years ago the stick was set aside as a rainy day research project with only the knowledge that it had passed from a Dr. Noble late of New Vienna, Ohio. Worthy of additional research, our own effort reviled that HNB (a.k.a. HBN) as inscribed on the silver cap (note that the large sir name N is placed in the center of the inscription with the first and middle initial on either side) was Havilah B. Noble who was a 28 year old physician in 1863 when he was commissioned on June 9th as Assistant Surgeon of the 2nd Ohio Cavalry. Noble was listed as having been taken by Confederates as a POW at Reams Station, Virginia, discharged for promotion on March 28, 1865 and commissioned as Regimental Surgeon 196th Ohio Infantry and mustered out on September 11, 1865 in Baltimore, Maryland. During his tenure with the 2nd Ohio Cavalry the regiment saw frequent and hard action to include such as at Chickamauga, Wilderness, Spotsylvania Court House, Hanover Court House, White Oak Swamp, Ream’s Station, Winchester, Cedar Creek and many more.
