    Default Two private purchase/civilian/Confederate haversacks for sale

    Paypal at Ross4thUSInfy@aol.com. Questions or "I'll take it" via PM or email Ind18th@aol.com for fastest response. Here's what I've got this week:

    Two private purchase/civilian/Confederate haversacks, fully handsewn $45 each shipped or add $12 for a handsewn cotton button-in liner. These are made from old stock FHW blue line duck and fully handsewn with inverted felling (as seen in the interior image), with two button closure and two backmarked original Goodyear rubber buttons. The bag measures 12 1/2 inches by 12 1/2 inches with a 47 inch strap. Now is the time to upgrade from that same old sutler row haversack or replace that dingy, greasy one you've been using for years. I recommend the liner, as they are easy to remove and throw in the wash to give this unpainted haversack more life and you less sick. (liners constructed of lighter cotton drill similiar to Federal haversack liners). These used up the last of my old blue line duck, so there can be no more of this type....

    Original purchaser requested another type, so both haversacks are available and ready to ship.

    Price drop: $38 each shipped and add $10 for handsewn button-in liner if desired. Fully handsewn haversacks from a good material no longer on the market

    Ross,
    I'm looking for a generic type haversack that fits militia/volunteers that possibly could cover from War of 1812 to Mex War. Does anything like that exist that would be accurate for use? How would this compare?

    Frank, I'll send you a PM on that. I've got a ton of info from the pre-war eras

    This one has been hanging on too long - one last price drop to $27 shipped or will even consider trades to get this thing gone. Fabric, buttons, buckles, any and all things considered - make an offer
