INSIDE OF McKeene AND HE IS HOLDING WHAT LOOKS TO BE A TYPE IV GEORGIA ARSENAL D-GUARD BOWIE KNIFE. IF YOU HAVE THE CONFEDERATE BOWIE KNIFE BOOK IT LOOKS LIKE THE ONE ON PAGE 103. I DID FIND A SOLDIER IN THE 59TH GEORGIA BY THE NAME OF McKeene WITH HIS ALTERNATE NAME OF R. RECORDS SHOW HIM BEING AT THE BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG AND BEING WOUNDED AND CAPTURED IN THE WHEATFIELD. COMES IN A NICE PATRIOTIC GUTTA-PERCHA CASE.
CASE DOES HAVE A FEW STRESS CRACKS AND SMALL CHIPS. PLEASE LOOK AT MY OTHER AUCTIONS FOR MORE GREAT ESTATE FINDS. IF YOU LOOK AT 3rd PHOTO YOU CAN SEE A FRAME BUCKLE WHICH ALSO LOOKS TO BE AN ARSENAL GEORGIA ISSUED BELT.
