NOTE: As of 29 November, Sales of Forged Items are Temporarily Suspended
(due to unfortunate medical issues affecting our blacksmith)
PLEASE PLACE NO ORDERS -- WATCH THIS PAGE FOR RESUMPTION OF SALES
We are offering is a select assortment of reproduction tools and weapons for use in naval living history. Through the good offices of a local blacksmith eager to support us in our efforts, we are pleased to take orders for the items on this page. Because the smith wishes to remain out of the loop as far as dealing with orders and customers goes, all orders will be routed through our local unit, the USNLP. The smith sets the prices; NMLHA does not add anything on top of that price.
If you are interested, order by sending a check made out to "USNLP" to 41 Kelley Boulevard, North Attleboro, MA 02760-4734 or use PayPal in the table at the bottom of the page. If there are items you would like to have made, provide plans or sketches and we'll ask the smith to quote on the job. RevWar boarding axe and enlisted man's cutlass coming soon!
Delivery times are subject to the availability of the smith to devote time to requests. All orders will be filled, but you may wait a few days, a few weeks, or months if he is inundated. This applies to everyone both inside and outside of NMLHA.

Recently Greg Germain contacted me with word that he recreates period navigational equipment. His web page is available at http://home.attbi.com/~saville/backstaffhome.html. Another blacksmith, Michael Toombs, also approached NMLHA with information about his wares, which can be seen at http://www.mttoombs.com.
American Revolutionary War British Marine
& Navy Belt Plate
These plates will be made from an example found in the Yorktown area. This plate is identical to the other known examples found in Philadelphia, New York and Yorktown. All are rectangular with the anchor ("not" fouled with a rope). There will only be a limited run of 24 of these plates made, and
our unit will be keeping 10 of them. That leaves 14 for other interested units or parties. If more are requested we will consider having more made at that time, but we don not envision this to be an on- going thing, at least on our part. The price per badge will be $33.00 per badge, plus 4.00 shipping and handling (packaging) first class, U.S. mail. Total, $37.00 Insured packages will require additional cost if desired by the purchaser. Multiple orders will reduce shipping costs.
Orders will be on a first come, first serve basis. Orders and checks received that cannot be fulfilled will be sent back. Full amount should be forwarded to:
2523 Ambling Circle
Crofton, MD 21114
Please make checks or money orders out to me. My unit has secured production starting by putting down half the costs now. If, for whatever reason, the badges are not made (but they will be) a full refund will be given to you.
