This is a very good example of the regulation, military issue Second Model Maynard cavalry carbine. The barrel has about 100 percent deep blue finish remaining with good bore and both sights in place. The Edward Maynard patent stamp with dates is crisp on the left frame as is the Mass Arms Co. address stamp on the right. The frame has strong case color on the left side, bottom. The right side shows good color fore and aft with some rubbing in the middle about where a shooter’s finger tips would hold it. The triggerguard and triggerguard tang show a steel gray mixed with brown from handling and one replaced screw. The other shows good blue. The buttplate shows some use as well, with nice blue to the screws, and mix of gray and thin thin brown.

The wood has a good fit to the frame and nice warm brown color with few handling marks and light, but visible inspector cartouches. The side bar with ring for attachment to the trooper’s carbine sling is present. The mechanics are good. The serial number, 17730, is present on the triggerguard tang.

This is the standard configuration Second Model, manufactured without patch box or forestock, and fitted with a 20-inch .50 caliber barrel that tips up at the breech for insertion of a brass-cased cartridge. These were made with a flame-hole at bottom to be ignited by a percussion cap. Some 20,000 of this pattern were made under government contract and began arriving in the field in 1864. It was generally regarded as light and effective. Units known to have carried it included the 6th and 11th Indiana and 10th and 12th Tennessee Cavalry, as well as cavalry serving against Indian tribes in New Mexico, Utah and the Dakota Territory.

Maynard was a noted inventor and this is a key U.S. Civil War cavalry carbine in any collection.  [sr] [ph:L]

DECORATED 1864 EASTER EGG BY A MEMBER OF THE 15th PA CAVALRY: WARTIME, WONDERFUL, AND WHIMSICAL

This whimsical, real Easter egg was apparently a gift from a member of the 15th PA cavalry to Samuel A. Henderson. Suspicion naturally settles on George Henderson of Companies C and A as the maker, but we have been unable to firm up the connection,… (945-516). Learn More »
