Confederate Items for Sale on The Net Are Not Legit. Think Twice Before You Break Out The Credit Card

Over 1/2 of the listings of “Confederate” relics on e-bay are mislisted, or non-descript items that have little or no relation to a Civil War soldier.

Below is a list of what items become “Confederate:”

1) Anything that looks old

2) Anything that looks crude or homemade

3) Any sword or knife that looks blacksmith made

4) Any antique tool like a shovel or pick

5) Any antique bought in an antique store in any Southern state

6) Any old or antique item found in a barn, yardsale, auction, flea market, or attic in a Southern state

7) Any weapon imported from 1800 to 1865, and some up to World War I
