Lifetime of Civil War treasures sole in Angier

ANGIER Until he died this year during 84, James “Cotton” Reynolds collected adequate Civil War rifles, swords, spurs, belt buckles and cannonballs to fill a room from building to roof – a lifetime store that enclosed a caisson, a low freezer full of over-abundance guns and a few additional treasures stashed in a tomato canner.

He grew adult in Perryville, Ky., where North and South clashed in 1862, and as a child he’d brush a fields for grapeshot and lift bullets out of mill walls. Later in life, as a veteran plumber, he’d barter work for artifacts, solemnly building one of a world’s excellent personal collections.

If we could benefit assembly to Reynolds’ shrine, he could demeanour during one coronet symbol and tell we where he found it, who made it, who wore it and for how long. In his lifetime, he pulled together all a wartime effects of a singular Union captain: his sword, his whiskey flask and his wallet with tobacco still inside.

“When we was a small girl, he’d come home and say, ‘I got a goodie today, honey,’ ” pronounced his oldest daughter, JoAnne. “Being a plumber, I’ll gamble half of that things came from regulating someone’s commode.”

On Tuesday, a vast cut of Reynolds’ collection strike a auction retard in Angier, nearby a home of his younger daughter, Beth Dixon. A standing-room throng filled a gymnasium during Johnson Properties, where owners Jimmy Johnson many purred over a goods.

“Oh, my, my, my, my, my,” Johnson urged a throng in his auctioneer’s patter, smacking his gavel. “Don’t wait so late St. Peter won’t let we in. This is 50 years of collecting right here. You can bake all a fuel we can in all those imagination trucks in a parking lot. You can’t put it behind together.”

Johnson and his group of auctioneers sole some-more than 600 pieces from Reynolds’ collection Tuesday, a sum a collector’s daughters estimated during reduction than half a whole lot. All of their father’s guns, for example, will be auctioned in Ohio.

“We found aged money,” Dixon said, flipping by cinema on her tablet. “He’s got paper nickels and dimes and quarters. Have we ever seen one? He hid everything. We found this in my mom’s aged tomato canner.”

Reynolds didn’t obstruct his entertainment to Civil War pieces. The offerings Tuesday enclosed a 149-piece set of John Primble India Steel Knives, that went to an online bidder in Minnesota for $7,500.

Buffs and novices lifted their hands, scooping it all up. A U.S. military-issued coax sole for $7.50. A Confederate bend brought $650. In one impulse of prohibited bidding, a insurgent sword from Georgia drew $3,250 from a collector’s wallet.

“Three grand would have been a deal, yet $3,300 was removing high,” pronounced Roger Van Praet of Clayton, who mislaid a behest on a sword, yet bought 5 buckles. “It’s my initial time collecting Civil War stuff. I’m Canadian, actually.”

The locate of a day, though, was a cache of Capt. W.H. Turner’s belongings, including a tobacco-filled wallet. A Kentuckian, he piloted a packet vessel during a fight in a limit state that pitted hermit opposite hermit some-more than most.

“Let me tell you,” Johnson said, gesturing to a collection. “You can’t reconstruct this. It took Mr. Reynolds years to put these together. The buttons are all on a jacket.”

Both daughters pronounced they had a tough time interruption with their father’s artifacts. But when Reynolds died in April, they knew he wanted someone else to suffer them as he had. As if by post-mortem request, Reynolds’ equipment from Capt. Turner went to Mayo Cameron of Sanford, who keeps his possess private museum. A gourmet for 30 years, Cameron paid $4,700.

The auction lasted all day Tuesday, bringing tens of thousands of dollars during least.

JoAnne Reynolds pronounced her father infrequently found himself gripping a arrange of horrible genocide watch over an aged gourmet in bad health.

She added: “Then he’d say, ‘Now they’re watchful on me.’
