  • Description

Update! Now covered in material that closely resembles the original leather.
Company Clothing Book - The Clothing Book had one page for each man in a company. On the page was kept a record of the clothing issued to each soldier. The page contained the value of each item issued. The actual items issued were kept on Quartermaster form 52. The Clothing Book kept the cash value of the items so that if a soldier drew more than his allowance, it would be deducted from his pay. If he drew less, he was entitled to the cash value of the items not drawn.  These books are made to the standards as stated in paragraph 127 of Revised U. S. Army Regulations, which states:127. The following books are allowed to each company: one descriptive book, one clothing book, one order book, one morning report book, each one quire, sixteen inches by ten.  Hardbound.

I have a question I need labels for a 1859 Sharps it is a 54 caliber . I notice your labels say 52/100 caliber am I missing somthing

Hello,

The Sharps labels are copies of the labels found in Echoes of Glory, Arms and Equipment of the Union page 46. Since I print all my labels, I can put 54 on there if you wish. Just mention it in the comments when you order the labels. Thanks for asking. Bob

John,

The Sharps rifles at the time were 52 caliber. The modern reproductions are 54 to match modern made ammo.

I don’t sell a reproduction of the package, but someone made one years ago and gave it to me. I don’t know if it is an accurate reproduction or made up. If I can find it in my files I’ll send you information.
