Remington Army Revolver with Belt and Holster

"REMINGTON ARMY REVOLVER WITH HOLSTER, CARTRIDGE BOX, AND BELT. SN 56280. Cal. 44. Grouping consists of Remington Army revolver, military-style flap holster - possibly Confederate, pistol box, and British-style belt with 2-pc brass buckle. Accompanying this grouping is a letter written in 1908 which states, “Confederate pistol taken from a Confederate LT. at the Battle of Piedmont, June 5, 1864. He was from Tenn. My father kept in the bank during his employment, 26 years. It is considered a good relic of the Civil War. I carried it until the close of the war . . .”. SN on cyl is 5950—does not match SN on gun; however,cyl is "K" marked indicating Army replacement this is not uncommon on U. S. martial pistols that were used in the Civil War. Left stock shows residual cartouche and a couple of carved initials. Remington’s bbl address is all discernible. Pistol was well-used but still operates mechanically. Belt loop on holster is torn. The piece of leather that would have held tab is missing. Half the stitching of holster is missing. Pistol box has one torn belt loop and one frayed belt loop. Some stitching is torn. Tab is missing. Patent leather English-style belt with decorative buckle is worn, but not as badly as holster and pistol box. CONDITION: Metal of pistol is gray/brown with scattered pitting, numerous small dings and dents.  Small traces of finish on bbl in protected areas.  Leather is well-worn, losing most of its black surface on holster and cartridge box, as described above.  Belt is sound with stitching missing where belt attaches to brass sword hanger
