100% Original Circa 1830-1860 Civil War Era Game Board Pieces In Original Bag For Sale
100% original circa 1830-1860 country made checker or gaming pieces in their original hand sewn drawstring bag. Has a circa 1910-1940s granny note on it. Just pulled out of a Maine farmhouse. Unfortunately the game board had already been "picked" by the time I got there. The game pieces are hand sawn painted wood, and even has two leather gaming pieces in there as well (talk about "country" or "homemade"). Drawstring bag originally had madder dyed red stripes (has since faded out to pink) with blue indigo dyed ones as well. As these are Civil War era or earlier organic dyes they fade out unlike their chemical dye cousins. Incredible game set, great for your country game board, old house, or for your Civil War collection as these are about as close to camp made checker pieces as you will ever find!Price of shipping has been increased again by the USPS, please see posted shipping costs, blame them not me!READ BELOW BEFORE offerDING. BY offerDING ON MY sales YOU AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING. Shipping price is listed in the sale, please see it before you offer. If not happy with shipping price please please do not offer. Yes if you win multiple items I always combine shipping. Sorry everyone but I have to state the following now due to recent problem children after selling more then 2,000 items on with no problems. 1.) If not happy with a item or other issue such as packing, service, etc. before leaving negative or neutral response or a low seller star rating on shipping costs, shipping time, item as described, etc you agree to contact me before you leave such response so we can reach a civil solution, example- return for a refund, etc. 2.) PayPal payment only. Payment is due within 5 days after the end of sale unless we have worked out prior arrangements, methods of payments, etc.After this time period has expired I will begin the unpaid item process and relist the item. With Paypal now there is no excuse to wait for 10 days to pay for a $15.00 item. Seriously, if you cant afford to pay for a $15 item you should not be buying anything. 3.) For international buyers outside of Canada if your item is over $50 I will only mail via express mail.

Please do not ask me for a cheaper method, if I offer free shipping, etc. The only time this is different is when you win multiple items at the same time from me then I combine shipping, see above. 6.)

Ask questions about the item before you offer on the item and you get a response back from me not afterwards. If I cant respond back to you before the end of the sale and you go ahead and place a offer on the item and you win it and the item does not fit your mental picture sorry but you now own the item and its yours. What you see in the photo is the item you are getting. If the item is well used in the picture you will get a well used item, not a mint or excellent condition item. 7.)
