inv # 01-17371
Cal. 54. NSN. Maybe the most elusive of all Confederate secondary arms is the Palmetto Armory Model 1841 rifle. There are very few correct and complete specimens known. An extensive report by Palmetto scholar and expert Dr. Fred Novy is supplied stating authenticity with his observations on this example. As noted by Dr. Novy, this rifle conforms to the few other extant examples with 33″ round barrel, brass mounts and brass tipped ramrod. The lock is marked: “PALMETTO ARMORY S*C” in a circle around a palmetto tree forward of hammer and “COLUMBIA / SC 1852” vertically on tail. The barrel is marked at breech on left flat: “WM GLAZE & CO” and just above are proofs: “P” over “V” over “palmetto tree”. Buttplate is surcharged; “SC” and stamped “63” and also on patchbox.
