"COOK & BROTHER ATHENS GEORGIA PRODUCTION CAVALRY CONFEDERATE CARBINE INSCRIBED TO A VIRGINIA CAVLARYMAN. SN 2865. One of the great rarities in Confederate long arm collecting is this early production Cook & Brother cavalry carbine serial number 2865. Its stock inscription that reads “S.W. Ellyson/Co. F/3rd Va. Cav.” enhances this rare carbine with rich history. This example has all of the early features including the iron swivel ramrod and sling ring bar on the left side of the stock. This carbine is in .58 caliber with a 21 1/8” barrel, two barrel bands and brass furniture on a black walnut stock. The front sling swivel is of brass, the rear of iron with a sling ring bar mounted to the left side of the stock having a large brass ring. Pinched front sight and fixed rear sight. All markings are correct. The left barrel flat near the breech is marked “Proved”, “Cook & Brother/Athens 1863/ 2865” is stamped on the right side of the barrel between the rear sight and the breech. The lock plate is stamped “Cook & Brother/Athens GA. 2865” over the date “1863.” To the rear of the hammer is a depiction of the Confederate First National Flag. One the cheek side of the stock, this carbine is inscribed and identified to a trooper in the 3rd Virginia Cavalry. The National Archives in its “Compiled Service Records of Confederate Soldiers Who Served in Organizations From the State of Virginia” shows a Samuel W. Ellyson as a member of Captain Vaiden’s Company F, 3rd Regiment Virginia Cavalry in 1863. The 3rd Virginia Cavalry served in Stuarts’ Cavalry Division, Fitzhugh Lee’s Brigade during the Battles of Antietam and Gettysburg. This rare and desirable identified Confederate cavalry carbine represents a unique opportunity to acquire a real piece of American history associated with one the Confederacy’s most renowned and hard fought cavalry units. Mr. Michel’s Notes State: “The rarest of all Cook & Bro. productions of longarms is the carbine. The 21-1/8” barrel is well marked “Cook & Brother / Athens Ga 1863 / 2865”. The lockplate is marked, forward of the hammer “Cook & Bro”, “Athens”, and the date. All parts are serial numbered 2865. The stock is carved “S. W. Ellyson Co F 3rd Va Cav”. Ellyson mustered on August 29, 1862, as a Private in Capt. Vaiden’s Company of Cavalry, Company F, 3rd Regiment, Virginia Cavalry. Provenance: Charles M. Glenn, Jr. (who acquired it as a young boy in 1928 from a childhood friend in trade for an ice cream cone).” PROVENANCE: Ex. Coll Charles M Glenn, Jr. (who acquired it as a young boy in 1928 from a childhood friend in trade for an ice cream cone. CONDITION: Very good. All metal surfaces have aged to a nice grey patina; the walnut stock is in excellent shape with only a few areas with heavy wear. The inscription is clear and is of the period. The carbine functions mechanically well. 4-31292 CW14 (20,000-25,000)"
