  • Description
Privateering Papers - contains all the forms you need to set out on the high seas against the British. A letter of Marque authorized the captain to capture British ships and sell the cargoes at public auction. Not only did a captain need a Letter of Marque, he also had to post a bond. The letter of marque states that the captain has posted a bond and received a copy of the instructions. The Instructions stated exactly how a privateer could legally conduct privateering. I found these three documents in three different states. I believe that this is the first time they have appeared as a set in over 200 years.

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.
