We just picked up a couple collections of artillery and other relics we are starting to list. Note that there will be more than artillery, bullets and fuses listed. We have buttons, camp items, US plates, etc.

Mansfield, Ohio Show was good as always. Our next show will be in Brandon, MS on June 8 and 9.

We continue to experience intermittent delivery of order emails, so it's wise to email us directly at and to be sure your order gets through. Thank you for your patience while we try to address this.

Title: Excavated Artifacts From Battlefields and Campsites of the Civil War 1861-1865

Author: Stanley S. Phillips

Edition: 5th (1986)

Price: $70

Shipping: Not included

Description:One of the classics, this book covers in nice details the various areas of relics found by relic hunters. Good pictures for the time and some fantastic pictures shown. I great book to help ID a large variety of relics you might run across. Of you are a relic hunter or just like to look at relics this book should be in your library.

The book was first published in 1974 and had at least 5 reprints. This one is the 5th edition done in 1986. I don't know if there are later editions or how many were printed each time. There must not have been large batches as the book is not easy to come by.

This book is in very good condition other than missing the dust jacket. The edges of the cover show no wear marks and has a nice unfaded blue color with gold lettering. Pages are nice and clean other than inside the cover is where an old pencil price was and the title page are a couple small foxing places or stains but they don't detract.
