I have a line on an interesting antique firearm and bible for sale that might be of interest to someone on ar15.com, so I thought I'd put out a feeler. I would be selling a Colt 1851 Navy Revolver and a Bible printed in 1618. These 2 items were the personal property of a Reverand C. W. Miller who fought with Morgan's Raiders during the Civil War. The items come with full provenance and documentation. They make quite a stunning and historically interesting set, and of course the price would reflect that. If this is something that might interest you please contact me off-line. Here's the revolver with case and accessories: [img]www.dimensional.com/~mwluse/antique_1.jpg[/img] And here's the bible: [img]www.dimensional.com/~mwluse/antique_3.jpg[/img]

Absolutely beautiful. This is certainly a case of "If you have to ask how much, you can't afford." [:(]

You need to take that on to the Antiques Roadshow so you can get a free professional appraisal and we get to see your reaction: [shock] followed by [:o] followed by [bounce] followed by [+]:D]

those are pretty cool, I'd like to check out both. I don't suppose there is some sort of "Reverend" discount on this stuff??? [;)]

That's some pretty cool stuff you've got there marvl. Just the Bible by itself would be something cool to own. I also think that you should take it to a professional and have everything appraised. I'm sure you could get a [b]tremendous[/b] amout of money out of it. If they were mine I don't think I could part with them. Good luck!
