Civil War U. S. Marine – STREIGHT Razor



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 treasure from our 50 plus years of scouring the country side for such things, this Civil War period bone mounted maker marked ‘Southern & Richardson DON CUTLERY WORKS’ straight razor is offered untouched and just as it was picked some years ago at a New Hampshire flea market. (Those were the days!) Best described here by our photos as to condition and eye appeal the bone grips are crudely scratch engraved with the sir name Woolley U. S. Ship Galena and the word ’Chios’. While our research came up wanting as to ’Chios’ (could simply be a misspelling) of the name Woolley is very specific as only one Civil War Navy example is listed in database records and he was Pvt. Robert Woolley a 21 year old Barrington, New Hampshire resident who mustered in on September 19, 1864 as a substitute in the US Marine Corps. Listed in the Register of Soldiers and Sailors of New Hampshire 1861-65 as deserted on 9/16/1867 at Portsmouth, NH, Pvt. Woolley is recorded as Missing at Fort Fisher in one January 1865 Marine Corps record we found? (see: Good fodder for additional research, this appealing old straight razor will make a nice addition to any Civil War personal item grouping and will be of special interest to the Marine Corps and Fort Fisher enthusiast .
