John Cobe – 1771


This horn came from a collector in eastern Pennsylvania and belonged to Revolutionary War soldier John Cobe. It has several pin wheel designs, a large tulip plant, a sled and his name, date and initials. The horn has acquired a nice patina over the years and is in excellent condition. Research shows that Cobe served under Capt. Cunningham’s 1st. Virginia Regiment in June 1778 and is listed on a casualty roster with a notation after his name “dead”.
