especially desirable! Civil War 9th Maine Infantry signet ring



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.

Another relic of our fifty plus years of gathering up Maine related Civil War treasures (those were the days) this Civil War vintage signet ring will best be described here by our illustrations. Hand crafted from horn with a pinned on escutcheon bearing the script engraved initials A. McG. Attached is a tag with the penned notation: ’removed from the finger of Andrew McGraw 9/19/1863 MORRIS ISLAND S.C.’ A veteran of Fort Wagner along with his two sons, all enlisting to serve in Co. A of the 9th Maine Volunteer Infantry, (Andrew Jr. was wounded at Wagner), records show that Andrew McGraw Sr died in the regimental hospital of typhoid fever, 19, September 1863. His government marker remains in place in the Beaufort National Cemetery, Beaufort County, South Carolina. (Document illustrations internet available)
While information posted on findagrave indicates that McGraw Sr. enlisted in Co. A 9th Maine Infantry with his three sons (Barney, Andrew Jr. & Thomas) Maine Adjutant Reports show only Andrew and Thomas as having enlisted with their father on September 22, 1861. All the same a prophetic relic of the Civil War service of the McGraw family, likely brought home and tagged by one of the two sons. An especially nice item for the Fort Wagner enthusiast as a representative relic of a father and his two sons all present at Wagner, one being wounded there. 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!
