Sweet, Gettyburg is probably a great place to get information on it.

I am planning on going to the Balitore gun show in March. It is for only older guns. I was told by the local gun shop that that is the place to be. Someone there should be able to help. I will, because of the help from this board, go at least a lot more prepared than before. Not sure if it is about the value (is interesting)or the history. It doesn't happen often that you get a chance to hold real american history. I certianly keep you posted on the outcome. Once again Thanks to all who replied.

it is I'm just astounded by the condition. The 5th Georgia saw a lot
of action--usually these guns show some pitting from black powder and
battlefield conditions. What a beautiful piece of history if it's real.

Peevee--try sending your pictures etc. to these folks.

Not sure if Jim Supica is still doing any appraisal work since he became
director of the National Firearms Museum, but he would be another
that could tell if it is authentic.

be careful if the try to put the gun down and they offer to buy it from you, they will probably be trying to "lowball" you.

+1 on that. "Appraisers, Authenticators, and BUYERS" Right now
find out if it's real. DO NOT SELL IT. Get at least two opinions
from different Appraisers/Authenticators. If it turns out to be real,
pay for a letter of authentication. Research the heck out of it,
if you can tie it to a individual 5th Georgia trooper the value goes UP.
Tied to a Confederate general? WAY UP. I'm reluctant to toss
dollar values around---but if it is real I would immediately insure it
for at least $8,000, and that may be low.

(If it's a repro I'll go $150 and pay the shipping)

Well--a month has gone by and I'm curious. PeeVee, have you any more
information to share on your gun? I'm sure I'm not the only one that wants
to know--Is it a REAL Griswold and Gunnison or a reproduction?

It is an original Griswold and Gunnison, Made in Georgia durring the War Of Northern Invasion. Extremly rare especially in that condition. Go to North-South Skirmish Association, Inc. bulliten board. (North-South Skirmish Association) and post a question for John Holland.(small arms committe).
