All relics offered on my website are guaranteed to be 100% genuine, you won't find any fakes here. Usually I personally know the person who dug each relic I offer and in most cases I obtained the relic directly from that person. When I obtain a relic from another source and don't personally know the digger my nearly 40 years experience in digging and handling dug Civil War relics guarantees that my experience is something you can trust. In other words you will receive nothing but the real thing. Guaranteed Forever! I will be happy to set up a lay-away plan that works for you. Shipping is actual cost. Also, images on this page can be slow to load because of the high resolution so you can more closely examine each item.
