*1903 SPRINGFIELD RIFLE. Cal 30-03. SN 103577. 24” bbl. 1905 transition gun with a twist. This gun has what is called a Gardiner safety device which was patented “US Patent 911683 Patented 9 Feb 1909”. The finger grooves in the stock were removed from this gun with spring loaded sliding grasping grooves replacing them. This was to work a rod that connected to the sear assembly so that this gun could not be cocked or fired without pulling on the grasping grooves. The Gardiner safety patent information is relief milled into the left side of the wood directly below the receiver. Also cartouche area is milled out as to show how the safety works. CONDITION: Finish on bbl and receiver is 90-95%. Flat-top hand guard is in excellent condition. Stock is good as modified with a slight split just about the added grasping grooves on both sides. Bands retain 75-85% of the blue. Trigger guard and floorplate are 60% finished. Bore is bright but with very little rifling left as to this safety system must have been significantly tested. Smooth buttplate has finish worn. Mechanically sound. A unique addition for the advanced ‘03 collector. 4-57783 BK12 (15,000-25,000)

*1903 SPRINGFIELD LINE THROWING GUN. Cal. 30 smoothbore. SN 1307135. 24” bbl dated “6-29”. This is a good example of an 03 rifle modified by Navy to be a line throwing gun. It fits all criteria, bbl having been bored to smoothbore with all lands removed. Front sight has been removed, stock & hand guards have been cut down to middle band area, buttplate removed with a shoulder pad added. This appears to be an orig line throwing gun as modified by U.S. Navy & meets all criteria as per Brophy p. 151. This gun is not accompanied by crate or any of the accouterments. CONDITION: Receiver retains 90% of a refinished Parkerizing as does bolt assembly which has a later Remington striker on it. Outside of bbl shows 98% of a refinish with bore being smoothbore & slightly dark with some pitting but should scrub out to be a little better. Note that these guns were made from unserviceable rifles. Buttstock assembly has dings & mars throughout with no visible cartouche & is cracked & repaired behind trigger guard through wrist for some 3”. Hand guard assembly has a crack from behind canister bracket to sight collar & a couple of significant dents between canister assembly bracket & middle band. This would make a good addition to someone that has the accouterments & needs the gun, or as a good example of a line throwing gun by itself. 4-57789 BK37 (700-1,500)

*1903 SPRINGFIELD RIFLE. Cal. 30-06. SN 1094435. 24” bbl dated “4-19”. Rifle is equipped with a Winchester A5 scope. Believe to be a facsimile or representative piece of what would be considered a sniper rifle. Scope, bases & rings are of the period, however it appears that the scope has been mounted in a couple of different places at one time or another. This could very well be an orig sniper rifle that has been modified through time. CONDITION: Receiver retains 95% arsenal finish with scope blocks mounted on front receiver rings but rear bridge has also been drilled & tapped and now has plug screws in it. Bolt is of later swept back type with 90% finish remaining. Bbl is in 98% arsenal finish with front bbl & middle band being the same. Front sight assembly is equipped with a sight hood. Rear sight assembly is orig & intact though not much use with scope mounted. Trigger guard assembly is 95% arsenal finish with some very minor dings under finish. Floorplate appears to be in 95% finish with some dry Cosmoline on it. Stock assembly is of period for a 1919 gun having two stock bolts & a faint but legible “DAL” inspection mark. Finger grooves are slightly worn, edges are reasonable although not sharp & there is some light scuffing to left side of stock just below wrist. Also, there is a filler on right side of stock just above rear stock bolt as to indicate some point in time this rifle or stock had a receiver sight mounted on it. Hand guard has been modified similar to that of a Marine sniper with scope block protruding off bbl through hand guard. This appears to be an assembled sniper rifle, not having been done by an arsenal, so we cannot guarantee its authenticity. 4-57786 (2,500-5,000)

*1903 SPRINGFIELD RIFLE. Cal 30-06. SN 470828. 24” bbl and dated “April 1911”. A very interesting note that this rifle comes with what appears to be a framed orig star gauging record from the Springfield Armory dated August 3, 1911. Record reads “Star gauging record for US Magazine rifle M1903 with SN of the gun”. Star gauging record is tattered on outside edges and trimmed to prevent further erosion, but appears to be 100% authentic. Mechanically fine. CONDITION: Rifle is in fine condition with 85-90% color on receiver, 80% color on bolt and 95% orig blue on bbl and front band. Lower band assembly and floorplate assembly have significant blue wear but do not detract from the gun in the least. JFC inspected single bolt stock is in very fine condition with minimal scuff marks and hand guard is the same. Checkered buttplate and screws retain most all of their orig finish. Front sight hood is a later replacement. Inspector’s note: Upon gauging the throat erosion on this rifle, it is slightly over #1 showing almost no wear with a bright shiny bore. 4-57815 (3,500-5,500)

*1903 SPRINGFIELD NATIONAL MATCH RIFLE. Cal. 30-06. SN 1229031. 24” bbl dated “6-21”. This is a first year production Springfield 1903 National Match rifle. The 1921 National Matches do not have a star gauging on muzzle but instead have inspector’s marks & star gauge numbers under wood in front of sight collar. This rifle has inspection number “3341” 1-1/2” in front of collar & inspection “AV” about 2” ahead of sight collar on right side. Both marks are underneath wood. Rifle has a Lyman 48 receiver sight which was to have been added at some later date as well as a polished bolt assembly which is not numbered. Leaf sight is not present. CONDITION: Rifle is in outstanding condition for a first year National Match retaining better than 90% of orig green Parkerizing to receiver. Bbl assembly is also in better than 90% condition with any significant wear being from a sight cover that is no longer present. Wood is in very good condition with sharp edges on finger grooves in a crisp clear “WES” cartouche, however there is a small nick in right side at the finger groove approx. 2” in front of rear sight assembly & there is some scoring to left side of buttstock comb as it appears that shooter may have been wearing glasses that scratched into wood. There are also some scores on left side of rifle, approx. 1” above rear sling swivel. None of these seem to detract from gun whatsoever. Buttplate assembly is fine checkered steel that retains better than 90% of orig blue. Floorplate assembly is in better than 95% condition with two small areas that appear to have been touched up, one being on very front edge of trigger guard & other being on trigger guard just behind floorplate. This rifle has a bright bore with just slightest bit of corrosion just in front of chamber but would appear to clean better. This is a very fine example of a first year National Match. 4-57806 BK36 (3,000-6,000)

LARGE LOT OF EPHEMERA PATCHES & BADGES FROM AN AMERICAN GI GUARD AT THE NUREMBERG WAR CRIMES TRIALS. This lot was purchased by consignor directly from former Sgt. Robert M. Brenneke who was a guard at Nuremberg trials for the 21 Nazi leaders in time frame immediately after cessation of hostilities in WWII. Sgt. Brenneke states, in an undated letter to consignor that he was one of the special group of 35 officers & 60 enlisted men who were hand-picked for that assignment. He states that he had been a member of the 94th Infantry Division until the time they were re-deployed back to the U.S. at the end of the war. Since he did not have sufficient points to merit re-deployment he remained in Germany on this selected special assignment. He states that he arrived at the “Palace of Justice” while renovations & repairs from bomb damage were still underway, prior to arrival of prisoners. After the arrival of 22 prisoners he was one of the prison guards in direct contact with prisoners. He states that almost immediately one of prisoners, Robert Ley, committed suicide so only 21 actually went on trial. He states he spent almost two years in Nuremberg with trials lasting a little over a year. He further states that Herman Goering was the only other prisoner to commit suicide by biting a cyanide capsule supplied by his attorney which he had secreted in a commode. The other 20 prisoners were subsequently executed, cremated & their ashes disposed in a river behind the crematorium. Included in this lot are two letters from Mr. Brenneke, an internet reprint of a 3-page article regarding “Corporal” Brenneke’s assignment to war trials; an order signed by Col. B.C. Andrus designing the crest for guards & Chief of Consul heraldic patches & badges; an orig 6-page document dated Nov. 20, 1945 entitled “Warcrime Trials Nurnberg (sic) Germany Nov. 20, 1945” which lists a short biography of all 21 of defendants on trial; a newspaper article from The Sunday Standard-Times, New Bedford, Mass., Dec. 22, 1946, with a picture of Mr. Brenneke holding a book with autographs of all 21 prisoners, which was later sold along with Goering’s sword & dagger; a newspaper page where Mr. Brenneke refutes a reporter’s claim to have visited Goering in his cell; prints of 15 black & white photos of inside & outside prison and of defendants & courtroom; two orig shield shaped color flashes (metal badges) worn by military personnel in the prison (visible in one of the above photo prints); an arm band for prison guards; one of the orig, extremely rare, shoulder patches as designed by Col Andrus & worn by Sgt. Brenneke while guarding prisoners; two helmet liner decals for military personnel in the prison which Mr. Brenneke states were affixed to the white helmet liners worn only in courtroom; a larger decal for military personnel; a vehicle windshield sticker for authorized vehicles to enter prison grounds; Sgt. Brenneke’s orig pass to enter prison grounds; another of Sgt. Brenneke’s orig passes; Sgt. Brenneke’s orig pass to Palace of Justice; Sgt. Brenneke’s off-duty pass; a clear plastic cigarette case with a Germanic crest on one side & inscribed on other “WAR TRIALS / -1945 – / NUREMBERG / GERMANY” & two CD’s of an oral interview of Sgt. Brenneke dated 2004. CONDITION: All of orig papers, pictures, etc. are yellowed but completely intact & legible. Collar flashes have some crackling to background white paint. White portion of arm band is slightly yellowed & shoulder patch shows light wear with stitching from having been attached to a uniform. Various passes, ID cards & decals show moderate wear & some light soiling. Cigarette case two or three old cigarette burns, but otherwise is completely intact & sound.

*HISTORIC REMINGTON MODEL 8 RIFLE USED TO KILL BONNIE & CLYDE. This lot also incl. an affidavit by Reves Jordan, brother of Sheriff Henderson Jordan, who was in charge of the ambush. Jordan states that this is the gun that was used by Prentis Oakley in the shootout. This notarized document was executed Sept. 21, 1980. Another notarized document, executed Dec. 18, 1967, is signed by HN Davis, Sheriff of Bienville Parish following the retirement of Prentis Oakley, attesting that this is the gun by which they were killed. Cal. 35 Rem. SN 48990. Standard rifle with 22″ shrouded bbl, silver bead front sight & semi-buckhorn rear sight. Mounted with nicely figured American walnut with uncheckered semi-schnable tipped forearm & semi-pistol grip stock with serrated steel buttplate.

This is the actual rifle used by Bienville Parish, Louisiana Deputy Sheriff Prentis Oakley to kill Clyde Barrow & possibly Bonnie Parker also. On morning of May 23, 1934, Bonnie & Clyde were traveling down Ringgold Road in the Parish, allegedly headed for Arcadia, Louisiana to rob the bank there. Bienville Parish Sheriff Henderson Jordan had received a tip of the pair’s planned activities & had contacted Capt. Frank Hamer & Manny Gault from Texas who had warrants for their arrests for murder. Both these men traveled to Bienville Parish & brought along Deputies Bob Alcorn & Ted Hinton of the Dallas County (TX) Sheriff’s Dept. to participate in the arrests. Sheriff Henderson & Deputy Oakley wanted to try to capture the pair but the Texas law enforcement people dissuaded them, stating that Clyde would never surrender. They set up an ambush on the Ringgold Road where they waited continuously for a day & a half until about mid-morning on the 23rd when one of the Texas Deputies spotted the gray Ford that the pair had stolen several days before up in Kansas. He notified the other posse members who were concealed near a truck they had commandeered to partially block the road. When Bonnie & Clyde stopped to ask if they could help the truck driver the posse opened fire & killed them instantly. Bienville Parish Deputy Oakley inadvertently fired before the signal stating that he had a bead on Clyde’s head & fired the first two rounds before the rest of posse opened up. It is well documented that Clyde was shot in left side of the head, as was Bonnie. It is almost certain that Deputy Oakley killed Clyde & may have also killed Bonnie.

Deputy Oakley was using this rifle that he had borrowed from his friend, a local doctor by the name of Shehee. Oakley had apparently previously borrowed this rifle for hunting in previous years & when he was notified he was to participate in the posse, not having a high powered rifle of his own, he borrowed this one from Dr. Shehee. This rifle remained in the Sheriff’s vault for many years afterward, apparently being taken out occasionally for display & hunting. It was purchased by the consignor in late 1960’s. Accompanied by several 1960’s pulp renditions of the story of Bonnie & Clyde, copies of numerous newspaper articles of their deaths, a paperback book, Bonnie and Clyde a Twenty-First-Century Update, Knight & Davis, published in 2003, a 33 rpm record titled, The Truth About Bonnie & Clyde, a hardback book, On the Trail of Bonnie & Clyde Then and Now, Ramsey, published in 2003. Also accompanied by a copy of a notarized statement by Reves Jordan, brother of Sheriff Jordan, telling of Deputy Oakley borrowing the rifle from Dr. Shehee; a notarized letter also from Reves Jordan identifying this rifle, by model & serial number, as the one owned by Dr. Shehee & used by Deputy Oakley when Bonnie & Clyde were killed. There is another identical statement by someone named Williams, who was the brother-in-law of Dr. Shehee.

The evidence affirms that this is the exact rifle which Deputy Oakley used during the ambush of Bonnie & Clyde & almost assuredly is the rifle that killed Clyde Barrow & probably killed Bonnie Parker. This rifle has been displayed a number of times but most importantly was part of the Remington exhibit at The Cody Firearms Museum in 1997 & is pictured on p. 278 in the book, The Guns of Remington, Madaus. Two pieces of museum label copy for this rifle are also included. CONDITION: Good. Very little orig finish remains, only in sheltered areas with most of surfaces being a blue/gray patina. Stock has numerous light nicks & scratches & a crack in wrist and retains a hand rubbed patina. Mechanics are fine, bright shiny bore. 4-57943 (50,000-150,000)

*EXCEPTIONALLY RARE ENGRAVED AND GOLD INLAYED MARLIN MODEL 90 TOM MIX PRESENTATION OVER/UNDER SHOTGUN. Cal. 20 ga. SN 1390. Spectacular little Marlin with 26″ bbls, choked MOD/IMP-CYL with matted top and single bead. It has extractor and dbl triggers. Receiver is spectacularly engraved with full-panel vignettes of a cowboy on a bucking horse, another cowboy on a horse, and a third cowboy holding a rope on the left side. The right side is equally elaborately engraved on the full panel with “TOM MIX” in script inlayed in gold, surrounded by engraved cowboy hat, Colt six-shooter, & a belt & holster rig. It has beautiful border patterns with foliate arabesque patterns on the forend iron, bottom of the receiver, & trigger guard. The forearm screws are also engraved, & the opening lever and top tang are engraved to match. The engraving extends about 3-1/14″ on each side of the bbl. It is mounted with exceptionally figured burled, shell grain, American walnut with fleur-de-lis carved and checkered forearm and semi pistol-grip stock, 14-3/8″ over an old Red Head waffle pad.

This shotgun was a rare Marlin special presentation given to Tom Mix in appreciation for his support of Marlin’s gun handling & safety program for American youth and also for promoting Marlin’s Model 100-S “Tom Mix Special” .22 rifle. One of these rifles is being sold separately in this auction. Accompanied by a Marlin factory letter signed by William S. Brophy identifying this shotgun and the reason for its presentation. It is well known that very few Marlin factory presentations were ever given out, notably only to Tom Mix and the equally famous Annie Oakley. Also accompanied by a large compilation of biographical information on Tom Mix, the man and movie star. He was born in 1880 in Pennsylvania and died in 1940 in an automobile accident in Arizona. At one time he was considered one of, if not the, wealthiest actors in Hollywood, earning as much as $20,000 per week at the height of his career. Pages 328, 329, & 330 of Marlin Firearms, Brophy, pictures the Model 100-S along with photographs of Tom Mix and the boys’ safe shooting program. Page 416 of the same book has 3 photographs of this very shotgun, including the Red Head pad. Page 540 of the same book has another picture of this shotgun stating that the presentation was made in 1937. The last line on page 541 and the first paragraph on page 543 of this book states that “On special occasions, Marlin has had one-of-a-kind engraved pieces done. Examples of some of these are illustrated in the section covering presentation firearms. The ones most deserving of recognition are the Annie Oakley and the Tom Mix guns. The Annie Oakley was engraved by Conrad Ulrich. The Tom Mix shotgun was engraved and gold-inlaid by two employees of a stationery engraving company that did not do many jobs in steel.” This shotgun is again pictured on page 610 of this book with more information about its presentation and names the engravers as Charles Preiss and Dan Cavanaugh of Lehman Brothers Company of New Haven, CT. Mr. Brophy considered this to be one of Marlin’s premier firearms, and there are more pictures and articles in this book than any other gun, including the Annie Oakley rifle. It is believed this is the only known Marlin presentation gun in private hands. CONDITION: Extremely fine. Near new. May have been fired, but if so, very little. Retains virtually all of its orig factory finish to both metal and wood with only a small rub on the bbl and a few light dings and scratches, and one small bruise in the forearm of the wood. Mechanics are fine, brilliant shiny bores. 4-57764 JR646 (70,000-100,000)

Top tang has “S” in raised gold & bottom tang has serial number in raised gold. Trigger guard has a large gold shield engraved “DD”. Engraving extends about 2-1/2″ over chamber areas of both sets of bbls & there is a light border pattern at muzzles. It has deep relief engraved thistle on forend tip iron. Water table has lightning cuts & it appears that the first “7” in serial number is stamped over an “8” or “9”. Mounted with orig, extremely beautiful, presentation quality, streaky, honey & chocolate, French walnut with a replacement fleur-de-lis carved beavertail forearm on 32″ bbls & a fleur-de-lis carved & checkered orig splinter forearm that is probably orig. on the 26” bbls. Stock has a straight grip with raised fleur-de-lis carved side panels with about 36-line checkering in center & 32-line checkering extensively over the wrist. It is 14-1/8″ over a skeleton buttplate. Bottom of stock has a large blank gold shield initial plate.

Accompanied by a Parker letter identifying this shotgun as having been shipped on Aug. 7, 1925 with 32″ bbls, straight grip & 2-5/8″ chambers. Also accompanying is a Larry Del Grego letter addressed to Mr. Dennis, wherein he states that the 32″ bbls are orig to this shotgun with the 26″ bbls fitted at a later date. He speculates that the 26″ bbls & beavertail forearm were fitted at Parker factory. He states that the “balance of the gun is all original”.

Our assessment of this fine Parker differs from that of Mr. Del Grego’s. But one thing we know for certain, as is a standard inclusion on Parker factory letters, it was not uncommon for owners of fine Parker shotguns to have changes made to suit their current needs.

Also accompanying is a collection tag from the James Parker collection that states that this shotgun was in the collection of a Dr. Chen of California. Tag also states that this shotgun is on p. 715 of book Parker Story Volume II, Gunter, et al. Also accompanying is a wonderful Huey oak & leather green felt lined case with green canvas cover. Page 715 of the above book discloses two full color pictures of this shotgun. A review of the records of Doug Turnbull Restorations disclosed that some time prior to 2003 the receiver of this shotgun was sent for some unspecified work. Speculation is that it was for re-case coloring. It appears that the address on the rib of 32″ bbls has been re-rolled. Drop at heel: 2-1/2″, drop at comb: 1-5/16″ . Bore restrictions: 32″ bbls: left – .023, right – .022; 26″ bbls: left – .007, right – .009. Wall thickness: 32″ bbls: unable to measure; 26″ bbls: left – .037, right – .032.

Both sets of bbls retain most of an exceptionally fine restored finish. Receiver retains virtually all of, what appears to be, a Turnbull restoration to case colors. Colors are brilliant. Wood is sound with one or two minor surface mars & retains virtually all of a fine restored finish. Mechanics are crisp, bright shiny bores. Case is as new. Cover is slightly faded. 4-55490 JR130 (75,000-150,000)

*RARE SPECIAL PRESENTATION ENGRAVED DE GRADE FOX DBL BBL SHOTGUN. Cal. 20 ga. SN 200231. Engraved in Gough style this beautiful Fox has 28″ Krupp fluid steel bbls choked FULL/MOD with tapered concave matted rib, sgl bead, crossbolt rib extension, ejectors & dbl triggers. Right bbl is engraved “KRUPP FLUID STEEL MADE EXPRESSLY FOR LEAPHY C. GOUGH” and left bbl is engraved by “A.H. FOX GUN CO. PHILA PA. U.S.A.” About 2-3/8″ of breech end of rib has vignette of three pheasants in a prairie scene with a gold band at each end. Receiver is wonderfully engraved with very tight; fine arabesque scrolls & 22 raised gold flower blossoms. Trigger bow has a gold wire heart with gold initials “LCG”. Opening lever, top tang, trigger guard & forend iron are engraved to match with a 23rd gold flower blossom on forend button. Engraving extends 1-3/4″ up bbls.

Water table is lightly engraved & jeweled & has the grade “D” on right side & “SPECIAL” on left side. It appears that this shotgun has been created from various parts as there is apparently another gun with same serial number. Serial numbers on inside of ejectors are “356884”, which was assigned to a Sterlingworth grade shortly after WWI & was a 16 gage. The other shotgun with same serial number is apparently also an upgraded gun. Consultation with a renowned Fox shotgun expert disclosed twenty-six items that may be at variance from what an orig high grade Fox shotgun should be. This, however, does not preclude this shotgun from being an original assembled for Mr. Gough to present to a lady in his life. No research was done to determine if someone named “Leaphy” was a relative or his wife. Drop at heel: 2-3/8″, drop at comb: 1-5/16″. Bore restrictions: left – .029, right – .013. Wall thickness: left – .022, right – .022. Bore diameter: left – .590, right – .610. Weight: 5 lbs. 13.12 oz. CONDITION: Extremely fine.

Receiver retains virtually all of its orig bright case colors, very slightly thinned on front of bottom edge. Trigger guard retains virtually all of its orig blue. Wood has one or two minor nicks. Right ejector is out of time & needs adjustment; otherwise mechanics are fine, brilliant shiny bores. A rare opportunity to own a very rare Fox shotgun. 4-55471 JR112 (17,500-27,500)

O’Hare” of famous target rifle sights, covers and shooting equipment. Maj. Hession was an active target shooter and Winchester employee.

*VERY RARE, VERY EARLY CASED WINCHESTER MODEL 21 CUSTOM GRADE DBL BBL SHOTGUN. Cal. 410. SN 31315.

Accompanied by a Cody Firearms Museum letter dated May 15, 2002, stating that there is no record for this shotgun. However serial numbers 31313, 31314 & 31316 are all listed in the records as being caliber 410 produced in 1955. An additional search of the records in November 2005 disclosed no additional information. Also accompanying are the final inspection reports on those three shotguns. A chart on p. 157 of Schwing’s book discloses that there were 37 Model 21’s in caliber 410 made in the period 1951 to 1959, with 26 of them having no engraving, five with gold only engraving, two with 21-6 gold engraving, two with 21-3 engraving & one with 21-1 engraving. It also lists one engraved outside the factory. Therefore this shotgun could only be either the one engraved in 21-1 pattern with extra flourishes or the one engraved outside the factory at customer’s request, ultimately making it an extremely rare Model 21. Also accompanied by an orig 2-pc cardboard box with yellow & red end label, containing two cardboard dividers & wax paper with wooden end reinforcement. Also accompanied by a chocolate brown oak & leather trunk case. Drop at heel: 2-1/4″, drop at comb: 1-3/8″. Bore diameter: left – .396, right – .401. Weight: 7 lbs. 2.24 oz.

Case is as new, box is fine with a couple of small breaks in sides & fuzzed edges. 4-56559 JR118 (40,000-60,000)
