Looks like some promoters are going for it and trying to run their shows. Who knows if enough people will show up to make them worthwhile. I hope it works out but have concerns as we all do. Still figuring out which ones we'll attend this summer, but it looks like we'll try and do them. Stay tuned as the situation is fluid.

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

Description:23" long set of blacksmith tongs. There is an "A" stamp inside a horseshoe mark and also "USA" with other illegible letters/words stamped in the metal near the joint.

Each artillery battery was assigned a "travelling forge" that would've been equipped with tools like this. This is clearly antique and of the kind used by blacksmiths in the old days, but no way of knowing if it was ever part of a military forge.
