Here is another beautiful old shotgun that came out of eastern Ky, and out of my brothers collection. Like the Pepper Boxes and the Model 1860 handmade rifle I got off of him, these old guns are really getting harder and harder to find. Sure wish they could talk to me. I really have no idea if this shotgun was used in the war, but a lot of Confederate soldiers preferred shot guns, mostly double barrels, over muskets. This one has AW Spies, and Warranted stamped into the lock plate. I know that AW Spies made a lot of very collectable and high grade guns, and swords before the war. I think this shot gun was made between 1832 and 1860. Thanks brother for letting me get these off of you to add to my collection.
