The Clifford and Lynne Young Collection of Confederate Arms
To be Sold on April 26, 2016
"The Young Collection to be sold is the best grouping of guns of the Confederacy that has ever been assembled, maybe not so much in quantity, but the best in terms of quality and originality. Buyers who end up with the guns from the Young Collection will be satisfied to know that they now own the best in Confederate firearms from the most well-regarded collection ever put together."
Bob Berryman - Longtime Dealer and Collector of Confederate Arms
"Cliff Young's LeMats comprise the finest and most complete collection I have had the pleasure of viewing. Each piece is unique, and a premier example of some aspect of the LeMat story."
Doug Adams - Author of The Confederate LeMat Revolver
"In Cliff Young’s Collection there are Spiller and Burrs with nearly all their original bright bluing, near mint LeMats, and more full dimension Confederate pistols than one sees in a lifetime. I felt privileged to be able to examine these pristine examples. Apart from the Dance Dragoon in the Bretherton Collection, pictured on page 93 of the TGCA Annual when it belonged to Greg Martin, I have never seen their equal."
Michael Zomber - Author, Filmmaker and Antique Arms and Armour Collector
"Cliff Young was already a very advanced and sophisticated Confederate collector when I began my career in the 1950's. Suffice it to say, this collection will never be duplicated in terms of quality and condition. It is quite simply the finest collection of Confederate firearms ever assembled."
