17th-18th Century Fire Starter

This is a rare relic that surely conjures tales of men that blazed the frontier and lived off the land on their journey.  You can imagine him settling in for the night, making camp and starting a fire with this prized fire starter.   The leather piece is stiff but opens and it has a pouch for holding the flint.  The iron wedge was for striking the flint on the base to make the spark and start the fire.  This example would have had a small handle for hooking to the frontiersman's belt or bag.  Great untouched condition and look at the iron work on the cover, it was no ordinary fire starter but instead was one that would have been the best money could have bought at the time.  It measures 2-1/2" x 2".

The original Model 1873 Winchester was probably the most popular civilian rifle used on the frontier of the American west because it could fire 15 shots in 60 seconds.   It is known as "the gun that won the West."

Carried by wagon masters leading trains of Conestoga wagons across the Great Plains, cowboys, Indians, U.S. Cavalry, buffalo hunters, outlaws, lawmen and pioneers, the identical cartridge shown here is the the cartridge for the Winchester '73", "the bullet that won the West."  These cartridges were found at the battle of Little Bighorn, Frank James, brother of Jesse James, carried a Winchester '73,  Geronimo's brother in law, Yanhoza (shown in the picture on the left) and Buffalo Bill Cody carried a Winchester '73 when he was a scout in 1876.

This is an original bullet for the Winchester '73, a .44-40 cartridge, dates from the 1870's...it's the bullet that won the West!
