       American Military Belt Plates  - New 3rd Edition Now Available
 
This monumental book by Michael J. O'Donnell and J. Duncan Campbell, is by far the most comprehensive reference books on American military belt plates available.  With 616 pages, this brand new third edition covers belt, cartridge box and eagle plates from the Revolutionary War through the very early 1900's.  Of course my favorite part is the large portion devoted to the Civil War.  Nearly every page shows pictures of front and rear of pictures with a description of each plate.  If you collect plates then this book is a must have.  $49.50   Ordering Information  or  Questions?

                 "Civil War Artifacts - A Guide For The Historian"
                              by Howard R. Crouch - 6th Edition

                             Brand New and Signed by the Author


This book is a comprehensive collection of photographs and captions of excavated Civil War relics and is absolutely essential for any collector or enthusiast.  Originally published in 1995 with 238 pages covering nearly everything a Civil War relic hunter/collector could expect to find from buttons, bullets, bottles, swords, buckles, plates, guns, badges, uniform items, canteens, horse equipment, stencils, camp items etc..... it still remains today an extremely useful tool in identifying those relics recovered from the backyards, trails, farm fields, woodlands, and most anywhere the Civil War took place.  Click on the thumbnail image to the left to see a small sampling of some of the pages.   While this magnificent book doesn't cover every relic associated with the Civil War, it does provide a broad look at what a relic hunter/collector might bring home after a day of hunting.   The best part of this book for me is the fact that with its shear volume of items, I can never manage to see everything in it.  Each time I pick it up, to either ID an item that I am researching or just to thumb through, my attention will inevitably be drawn to yet another relic that I failed to see during a previous reading.  I will then spend another half hour pondering that piece forgetting about what I was originally looking for!  What I am offering is a hard bound copy which is brand new and is personally signed by Howard Crouch.   It measures approximately 8 3/4 x 11 1/4 inches and has 238 pages with photographs and captions on nearly every page.  $49.50  Ordering Information  or  Questions?
