Bannerman Military Goods – Civil War Cavalry Carbine Socket Display



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.

Seldom surviving intact as cavalry and Civil War collectors have, dismantled these Bannerman display escutcheons removing the nearly always unissued condition carbine socket for display. Hard to imagine in today’s world of scarcity, Francis Bannerman of Bannerman’s Military Goods acquired an abundance of these carbine sockets when he purchased all manner of left over military paraphernalia from the reconstruction era U. S. government. The harness leather sockets were fashioned into match holder wall displays by plugging one end of the socket with a wooden disk and attaching it with a bit of iron wire to an shield shaped wood plaque. (Though we would discourage it, all easily removeable without damage to the original leather socket.) The display was further embellished with the attachment of issue shako chin strap buttons. Now seldom encountered, a complete original example of an old Bannerman Civil War carbine match holder as was offered in his early 1900s military goods catalogues (even to the typed label on the back) is worthy of preservation over and above the Civil War issue carbine socket.
Likely not required here, but for the sake of the uninitiated the carbine socket was buckled to a saddle strap in a position to accept the muzzle end soldier’s carbine as his weapon was slung on the issue cavalry sling. The leather socket would thus hold the carbine muzzle secure even at full gallop without restricting quick access. 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!
