A collection of EXTREMELY RARE Federal infantry by Allgeyer, including infantry and officers in shakos and New York? Includes a very early depiction of what appears to be the Merrimack ironclad firing a cannon. Condition is mostly Good with paint chips as are usual with figures of this age. One cannon barrel is broken and a few muskets as well. The American flag is broken from its shaft but present for repair.
Overall, an extremely rare and fascinating representation of Civil war troops by a German firm produced during or shortly after the Civil War. Perhaps these were made for export to the Northern states? Provenance: formerly the property of a highly respected German dealer.Please see my other auctions.
