PAIR OF CARVED IVORY STOCKED FLINTLOCK PISTOLS. NSN. Cal. .70. This is a very attractive near matching pair of carved ivory stocked pistols. Metal portions of the pistols themselves are for the most part late 17th to 18th C. Ivory stocks however and gold mounts were added at a later time. 13-1/2″ part oct . bbl with “xxx” cartouche on top at rear. 5-1/8″ banana locks are marked “MICHARIVS/BREDA” at the tail. Top of one hammer is replaced. Top jaw and screw of the other are also replaced. One bbl has been bushed and the touch hole moved 1/4″ to the rear and lower to match the pan. Brass furniture appears to be old trigger guards. They are screwed to the surface of the stock. Some small repairs and replacements to the ivory, which mostly have natural age cracks. Carved heads are similar. Please note: Accompanying this lot is a letter from Peter Dredge, at one time owner of the Angel Armory in London, dated 1978 and indicates that he showed these pistols to Mr. J. F. Hayward the head of Sotheby’s Firearms Dept. who purportedly indicated that these were made by Jan Micharivs. According to the letter Mr. Dredge states that Mr. Hayward felt that the pistols were completely authentic late 17th C. Dutch Ivory mounted pistols and a very rare and fine pair of which he indicates that similar examples are now illustrated in the book Dutch Firearms by Arne Hoff. We do not concur. As we have indicated above, we believe the metal portions of the pistol are essentially late 17th or 18th C. and the ivory stocks and gold mounts were added at a later time. They are a very handsome pair and quite showy. CONDITION: Fine appearance with defects as noted. 8-76147 (7,500-12,500)

Trigger guards & nose pipes retain most of their orig blue with one pistol being a little stronger than the other.

EXTREMELY FINE VON DER FECHT JAEGER. NSN. 72 Cal. 27-3/16” swamped oct bbl. Faintly marked “Von Der Fecht” on the faceted lockplate in front of the hammer. Johan George Von Der Fecht was born in Brandenburg in 1675 and died in Berlin in 1740. He was the royal gunmaker to Friedrich Wilhelm I. starting in 1713. He was later appointed royal gunmaker to Friedrich’s son, Frederick the Great. This fine hunting rifle was made at Brandenburg, a suburb of Berlin, which was then the capitol of the Margravate of Prussia. The perch belly stock is typical of the Brandenburg school. The heavy Germanic carving of the wood can be found at several of the German schools, but the deeply carved scrolls are typically Brandenburg. The faceted ramrod pipes, lockplate and triggerguard are also typical of this school. The buttplate is a simple flat piece of iron bent over the top and decorated with a leaf finial. There is a sling swivel mounted on the front of the triggerguard, but the one on the forearm is missing. There is a long magazine article about this gun in the accompanying papers. CONDITION: There are several repaired cracks running along the grain on the forearm and the front 13” has been replaced, probably the result of having been cut apart to fit into a duffle bag during World War II. This has all been professionally repaired and presents a fine appearance. All metal has been cleaned to bright and scattered light surface rust has formed. It would be easy to clean again. Lock and set triggers are fine. 4-58870 FS676 (6,000-12,000)

EXTREMELY RARE BREECHLOADING DOGLOCK MUSKET. NSN. 74 Cal. 44-1/4” part oct bbl. No markings are visible. The lockplate, brass triggerguard, buttplate, sideplate and faucet escutcheons are engraved. A .781 plug 1-5/8” long is screwed into the bottom of the bbl to contain the chamber. A 1/2” wrench is needed to extract it. This musket came from the W. Keith Neal Collection and has been the subject of numerous articles and book chapters concerning 17th C. Tudor or English siege weapons, including Neal & Back’s Great British Gunmakers 1540-1740. (See Plates 44-a through e for the exact gun.) It was sold along with parts of his collection in 1995. Copies of the provenance listed in that catalog accompanies the lot. It is variously described as having a flat lockplate, “engraved with strawberry foliage and with dog-catch in the form of a bird’s head”, with a sideplate in the form of a monster and a thumb piece with “a caricature head”. This figure of a soldier wearing a helmet has a very long nose. The gun came from Timsbury Manor near Bath, England and dates around 1670. To load it, it was turned upside down and the screw plug removed with a wrench, the powder was poured in and the gun tipped up so the powder would go to the rear and the ball was inserted on top of the powder and the screw put back in. The lock was then ready for priming and firing. In J. N. George’s book, English Guns & Rifles, he indicates that guns of this type may have been used in the towers by snipers during a siege to shoot the officers of the siege force. The dragon sideplate is possibly replaced. There is very light raised carving around the bbl tang. There is no hammer screw on the outside of the lock. The lug on the back of the hammer extends through the lockplate and through the tumbler and is secured by a pin passing through the lug. The sear is also secured by a pin and operates against the top of the hammer, unlike most, later flintlocks. There is no bridle on either the tumbler or the frizzen. The front lockplate hook appears to be a replacement. There is a long extension on the tang of the buttplate with block engraving matching that on the breech plug escutcheon. The large v-notch rear sight has a folding leaf with three peepholes drilled in it. There is a large turned ring at the muzzle which has a brass bead sight on top. CONDITION: Lock has a smooth gray patina with some light pitting. Bbl and rear sight have very heavy pitting. Brass furniture has a mellow patina. Stock shows minor repairs and the rear of the lockplate and sideplate with a repaired crack through the wrist. Mechanically fine. 4-59136 FS778 (10,000-20,000)

There is some staking around the touchhole, but no bushing is visible. The large flat, brass sideplate suggests possible pre-Revolutionary manufacture. The trumpet shaped ramrod is possibly a replacement. There are no marks on the bbl which has a 11-1/2” octagonal section with a 3-1/2” tapering section to a ring where the reduced rnd bbl continues to the muzzle. There is a slight Brown Bess bulge in the forearm at the end of the octagonal section of the bbl. The tailpipe is fitted to the stock at this point. The stock has long flutes in the comb.

He was appointed Postmaster General in Ulysses S Grant’s cabinet from 1869-1874. Among the papers accompanying this rifle is a copy of the letter from the Chief of Ordnance with the Commanding Officer at Springfield Armory: “You will be pleased to make a Springfield breech loading Musket for the Post Master General, and sent it to this office with a bill or statement of the cost of the same. The musket is to be of the same length, and to have the same stock (which is to be varnished) as the Cadet Musket, Model of 1866. The arm to be fine sighted and provided with a set trigger; the barrel to be browned; and the name – “J. A. J. Creswell” – to be stamped on the tang of the Butt plate, as the Cadet Muskets are now marked.” This appears to be the single “sporting rifle” that was made in 1871. While the sights appear to be normal, an unusual single set trigger with a large adjustment screw at the rear has been added. Other items accompanying the lot are copies of Creswell’s “REBEL RESOLUTION” of 14 Feb 1861, an autograph, and 2 copies of portraits in gold frames. CONDITION: Excellent.

RARE REMINGTON PERCUSSION SINGLE BARREL SHOTGUN. Cal. 20 bore. NSN. These rare shotguns were recently identified, around 1990, by Jay Huber, only after he had purchased an extremely rare 1877 Remington catalogue which listed this model of shotgun. Prior to then they had been identified by a variety of names and even as cheap European imports. Mr. Huber is responsible for this shotgun’s listing in Flayderman’s Guide. Very simply constructed, these shotguns have a 35” rnd bbl with sgl brass bead & deep sighting notch in hammer nose. It has two iron guides on bottom containing its orig, hickory, brass tipped ramrod. Receiver is very simple, flat sided with radiused front & rear sides, center hammer with top & bottom tangs and a simple finger rest, iron trigger guard. Mounted with uncheckered, straight grain, American walnut with a 10-1/2” rnd forearm with iron tip & straight stock with smooth iron shotgun buttplate. Accompanied by copies of an 1873 Remington pamphlet and p. 21 of Remington 1877 catalogue, both advertising this shotgun. The 1873 pamphlet states that “having made & sold 10,000 of these guns within the past few years, we now feel warranted in resuming their manufacture.”. This is, seemingly, an exaggeration in the production figures but regardless, there probably are many more out there in collections that are unidentified as they are completely unmarked. This shotgun was part of the exhibit “Arms & Art of the Remington Arms Company” at the Cody Firearms Museum, Buffalo Bill Historical Center, Cody, WY in 1997 and is pictured on p. 251 of the book The Guns of Remington, Madaus & Goodwin. CONDITION: Fine plus. Bbl retains a smooth, bright, brown finish, probably original, slightly thin over forearm area. Receiver retains traces of blue finish, being predominately a dark brown patina overall. Wood is sound with handling & use marks and retains a hand worn patina. Mechanics are fine, strong pitted bore. 4-59429 JR387 (1,000-2,000)

RARE REMINGTON ROLLING BLOCK BLACK HILLS RIFLE/SHOTGUN. Cal. 45-60. SN 7712. These rare rifles were produced by Remington as a low cost sporting rifle. The advertisement in their catalogue states “Designed for Hunters and Sportsmen generally, when requiring a well made, reliable gun at a moderate price. Using cheap, but strictly first-class ammunition.” This gun is described as having 28” tapered rnd bbl, German silver, pin front sight on a dovetail with a shotgun type, fixed rear sight. It has maker’s name & address near receiver. It is now smoothbore, apparently having been made into a shotgun. The consignor believes this gun was a prototype shotgun made in the Remimgton factory and never marketed since no 45-60 shot shell ammo was ever produced. A 45-60 cartridge will chamber. Mounted with uncheckered, straight grain, American walnut with tapered forearm & straight stock with semi-crescent buttplate. Accompanied by one extremely rare, orig, Remington cartridge for this rifle. Consignor states that he paid $370 for this cartridge several years ago and in all of his years of collecting is the only shotgun example he has ever encountered. Also accompanying are two chamber casts, another shorter 45-60 cartridge and a 45-60 Peabody cartridge, all of which are similar and will chamber in this rifle. Remington cartridge was apparently a dud and was drilled to make a dummy. CONDITION: Very good to fine. Bore opened up as noted. Bbl retains 60-70% orig blue with balance a mottled patina. Receiver retains traces of case colors in sheltered areas with moderate pitting. Wood is sound with oil staining on forearm & stock around receiver & tangs and retains a hand-worn patina. Mechanics are fine, bright shiny bore. 4-59437 JR388 (1,600-2,500)

It is also one of a few hundred that had the rear of the cylinder turned down by the Navy (1885-86) to correct a jamming problem; later found to be a problem of the ammo and not the revolver. It was probably sent out to be engraved & refinished sometime after 1886 & perhaps done for an officer as a presentation piece or a memento of his service. The engraving is typical New York style Remington. These Remington conversions were used up until 1889 when the Navy purchased Colt revolvers. CONDITION: Fine. Retains about 80% of the gold wash, mostly missing on the triggerguard & bottom of frame. Almost all of the silver remains. Grips are fine with minor handling marks. Bore is very good. Action is fine. 4-59324 JH129 (3,500-5,000)

ENGRAVED REMINGTON NEW MODEL ARMY CARTRIDGE CONVERSION REVOLVER. Cal. 46 CF. SN 97757. Conversion #EE10 on left side of loading lever & on left side of frame under grip. Nickel finish with 8” oct bbl with crisp bbl markings, 2-pc walnut grips, pinched front sight. Consignor states that revolver came from Remington Factory Museum through Arnie Chernoff & Ron Ogan. It was an experiment since the 46 cal. CF cartridge was never commercially manufactured and marketed. Cylinder stamped with “PATENTED APRIL 3D”. Circa 1866-1874. This was originally a military revolver as it has inspector marks on various parts. The floral scroll engraving extends from front of frame onto rear of bbl and simple sine wave lines are under cyl on both sides of frame. CONDITION: Generally fine, most surfaces have been cleaned without affecting the nickel. Grips have minor nicks & dents. Bore is good. Action is fine. 4-59325 JH43 (4,000-6,000)

REMINGTON NEW MODEL ARMY CARTRIDGE CONVERSION REVOLVER. Cal. 46 RF. SN 137772. Conversion #1932. Blued finish, 8” oct bbl, pinched front sight, conversion cylinder with S&W/White patent date stamp, brass triggerguard, 2-pc smooth walnut grips with government cartouche on left grip. Accompanied by a detachable nickel shoulder stock. This revolver is a typical S&W/Remington conversion contract revolver that is military inspected from leftover Civil War inventory. Consignor found this revolver with shoulder stock hardware installed on butt & adapted a non-factory shoulder stock of Frank Wesson type to this revolver to fit the existing hardware. Quite unusual & rarely seen. CONDITION: Fine. 75% blue on iron parts, worn on the grip straps & high points. Reproduction stock retains much of the orig finish and nearly all of the added finish on the altered parts. Bore is lightly pitted, action is fine. 4-59328 JH140 (4,000-6,000)

RARE REMINGTON 61 NAVY CONVERSION REVOLVER. Cal. 38 RF. SN 16244. Nickel finish, 7-3/8” oct bbl, cone front sight, 2-pc smooth walnut grips with cartouche. This revolver is marked on cylinder, “PAT. APP’D FOR” and was military inspected & apparently bought as surplus and converted to cartridge by other than Remington. Consignor has seen many 44 cal Remingtons with “PATENT APPLIED FOR” on cylinder that were apparently converted by same gunsmith. This conversion revolver with these markings on cylinder is the only one of its kind consignor has ever seen in 38 cal. CONDITION: Good. Nickeled at time of conversion, most of which remains with some areas of flaking & light surface rust. Grips have normal wear & tear. Bore is lightly pitted. 4-59478 JH89 (1,500-2,500)

REMINGTON NEW MODEL NAVY CARTRIDGE CONVERSION REVOLVER. Cal. 38 CF & RF. SN 43031. Nickel finish, 7-1/2” oct bbl with standard three line marking, pinched front sight, casehardened hammer, 2-pc smooth walnut grips. This revolver is an experimental model modifying the improved Navy Model. It was made from scratch as a cartridge gun. It has two separate firing pins that were depressed simultaneously as the hammer dropped in firing. The top firing pin would strike the rim of the chambered cartridge and the lower firing pin would strike the center of the cartridge. The upper firing pin is missing in the revolver. As a result of this design, the revolver could fire either center or rim fire cartridges in the chamber under the hammer. The revolver would fire any combination in cylinder. Circa 1878 after the 38 CF cartridge was introduced. This is the only one known to exist. It never went into production, perhaps because it would ruin a center fire cartridge for reloading with a dent in the rim. Reloading was becoming very popular at this place in time. CONDITION: Very good. Retains 90% of current nickel, which covers some of the pitting on frame & cyl. There is new flaking and light pitting on bbl & loading assembly. 30% silver remains on triggerguard with numerous dents & scratches. Grips have been refinished. Bore is good with light pitting. Action is fine. 4-59322 JH75 (2,250-2,500)

REMINGTON NEW MODEL ARMY CARTRIDGE CONVERSION REVOLVER. Cal. 44 CF. SN 114089 on the left side of frame under the grip, 121589 on the bottom of the bbl, 13091 in pencil on both grips. Conversion numbers 514 on the right side of frame under grips & 508 on the bottom of bbl. Cyl is unmarked. Blued finish, 8” oct bbl, pinched front sight, brass triggerguard, 2-pc smooth walnut grips with “GP” cartouche. This is a Civil War military inspected parts revolver assembled from three revolvers (121589, 114089 & 34541) and converted by Remington to cartridge probably around 1870 to 1874. Chambers the 44 Remington, Colt, S&W, and Martin primed Colt & Remington Centerfire cartridges. It is somewhat of a mystery revolver & bears continued research into its manufacture. 44 CF Remington Conversions done by Remington are not very common. CONDITION: Fine with over half the blue with losses due to flaking rather than wear. Grips show light wear. Bore is bright, mechanically excellent. 4-59330 JH145 (1,750-2,500)

REMINGTON NEW MODEL ARMY CONVERSION REVOLVER WITH SPARE PERCUSSION CYLINDER. Cal. 44 perc & 46 RF. SN 81903. Blued finish with 8” oct bbl with standard three line bbl markings, 2-pc walnut grips, pinched front sight. This revolver does not have military markings & was most likely made up of leftover military parts around 1868-1870. It comes with a percussion cylinder which as been modified to fit in the conversion recoil plate. SN 1915 appears on the rear of percussion cyl. It is interesting that the 5-shot cartridge cylinder and the 6-shot percussion cylinder can be interchanged and index perfectly in the revolver. The cartridge cyl is marked, “PATENTED APRIL 3D 1855”. Conversion number “1241” is marked on bottom of bbl, and left side of frame under grip. The initials, “UB” are on the left side of the triggerguard. It is also interesting to note that the revolver is referred to on the displayed B. Kittredge letterhead dated 1868 and refers to the two cylinders. Even though it refers to it as a 44 cal. cartridge, consignor feels they really meant the 46 RF cartridges. (These two cartridges used a 44 lead bullet and the 46 was often referred to as a 44. The Remington split breech carbine of the Civil War used a 46 RF cartridge but was called & marked a 44.) CONDITION: Fine, with 60% orig blue mixed with light surface rust & flaking. Grips show normal handling marks. Bore is lightly pitted, action is good. Cartridge cyl has only traces of finish and is mostly a brown patina. 4-59323 JH46 (2,000-2,500)

REMINGTON NEW MODEL ARMY CONVERSION REVOLVER. Cal. 46 RF. SN 124849. Conversion #777. Blued finish, 8” oct bbl with standard three line markings, pinched front sight, brass triggerguard, 2-pc smooth walnut grips with “O.W.A” cartouche on left grip. There is no Rollin White patent marking on cyl. There is a Remington patented cartridge ejector, a typical Remington recoil plate conversion. Frame is marked in large letters “C.A. 385”. Research has not provided consignor with information as to what this marking means. Consignor is inclined to believe that Remington took a contract with the U.S. Army Cavalry for about 400 (has never seen a number over 400) of these revolvers and sold them under the table, so to speak, since the S&W/White patent was still in effect. Consignor thinks this gun design was created shortly after the Civil War to use the Remington Split Breech 46 RF carbine cartridge which was invented at the end of the war. (These revolvers were actually marked 44 cal.) This cartridge chambers perfectly in these 46 caliber conversions. A newly found 1872 orig Remington catalogue confirms that these conversions were offered in 46RF Short, 46RF long (46RF carbine cartridge). Remington Society of America would like to solve the “C.A.” mystery and would appreciate any help. CONDITION: Very good. 40% blue overall mixed with surface rust & light pitting. Grips show light wear & some dents. Bore is bright but lightly pitted. Mechanically fine. 4-59327 JH133 (1,600-2,700)

RARE ENGRAVED REMINGTON NEW MODEL NAVY CONVERSION REVOLVER. Cal. 38 RF. SN 44598. Conversion #32. Blued finish with 7-1/2 oct bbl with standard three line markings, pinched front sight & beautiful 2-pc burl walnut grips. Circa 1874-78. Commercial model for the English market. Barrel is stamped with London proof marks. Consignor states that this may have been one of nine revolvers made up for Remington’s London Office, 15 Queen Victoria St. (Cyl marked “30”, loading lever “39”) Consignor states that this could be an indication of parts reassembly error after revolvers were disassembled for proofing. Remington conversion revolvers are very rare. CONDITION: Very fine, with 80% blue overall. Worn mostly on grip straps, with some flaking on right side of frame. Bright casehardening color on hammer. Grips appear to have been re-varnished. Mechanically good. 4-59321 JH53 (1,750-2,250)

REMINGTON NEW MODEL ARMY CARTRIDGE CONVERSION REVOLVER. Cal. 46 RF. SN 137026. Nickel finish with 8” oct bbl with standard three line marking, pinched front sight, 2-pc walnut grips with “JWK” cartouche. The conversion number “2913” is stamped on the bottom of the bbl & left side of frame under grip. Back of cyl has various marks. This revolver is typical of the Smith & Wesson/Remington contract conversion of 1868-1870. It is one of over 4,500 leftover percussion military guns sent to Smith & Wesson for conversion by B. Kittredge Co. of Cincinnati, OH for conversion to cartridge. All the cylinders of this contract were stamped with the White patent date “PATENTED APRIL 3D 1855.” Smith & Wesson held the rights to the White Patent (bored through cylinder) until expiration in 1869. Revolver is an example of the blued contract type. Many or most revolvers were refinished at this time; this was one of the few nickled. The conversion was done for $3.3825 each with Smith & Wesson retaining $1.00 royalty. The orig contract revolvers were supplied without the patented ejector. (This was added to revolvers made after this contract was complete.) CONDITION: Retains much of the nickel plating applied at the time of conversion, with some flaking on bbl, & wear on triggerguard. Grips have been varnished over the light chips & dings. Bore is good with light pitting. Mechanically fine. 4-59326 JH45 (3,000-4,000)

SCARCE REMINGTON NEW MODEL ARMY CONVERSION REVOLVER. Cal. 45 Colt CF. SN 84632. Blued finish with 8” oct bbl with three line bbl markings, pinched front sight, 2-pc walnut grips with cartouche. These revolvers are said to have been converted to cartridge by Osgood Gun Shop, Bangor, Maine around the turn of the century. The serial number on the cyl, conversion plate, & loading gate is “846”. These will be found in 44 & 45 caliber and were converted by adding a recoil plate with a loading gate and providing a new cylinder. An extra long firing pin was added to the hammer to search through the recoil plate. Basic revolvers were most likely purchased from the government at auction after the Civil War. Another example of this revolver was found in the 1980 Mouldenhauer Auction. CONDITION: Good. 30% blue on bbl, frame, & loading lever. Conversion plate & cyl have a gray patina with light pitting. Grips have numerous small dents on the right side and are missing chips at the base. Bore is lightly pitted, action is fine. 4-59479 JH48 (1,500-2,000)

RARE PROTOTYPE REMINGTON/BEALS CARTRIDGE SPUR TRIGGER SINGLE ACTION REVOLVER. Cal. 32 RF. NSN. Blued finish, smoothbore 4” oct bbl, missing front sight, spur trigger with typical Beals’ design gutta percha handmade bag grips in three pieces, two sides & the bottom. It has a drop down cyl pin with ball catch. There are no markings anywhere on revolver. The revolver appears to be a very well made, hand-machined, model shop type prototype, using Fordyce Beals basic design patterns. Because of certain Beals design features used, the consignor’s research dates the gun circa 1860-1862. This revolver was probably not marketed since it was a definite infringement on the Rollin White Patent owned by Smith & Wesson at that time. Smith & Wesson began winning their court infringement cases in 1862 and more than likely this kept Remington from producing this revolver. Accompanied by a copy of the Oct. 1991 Gun Report containing an article written by Mr. Huber, the consignor, about this revolver. In the article is a copy of an October 1860 price list which he believes refers to this revolver. The price list states “We have now in process of manufacture a new and superior CARTRIDGE LOADING REVOLVER which will be ready for market in the course of two or three months.” Revolver is pictured on p. 200 in The Guns of Remington, Madaus. CONDITION: Good to very good. Traces of orig blue in protected areas, mostly gray/brown patina mixed with light pitting & surface rust. About 80% of silver plating remains on triggerguard. Grips are fine, bore is poor, action is good. 4-59492 JH113 (3,000-5,000)

RARE AND HISTORIC COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER EXCAVATED FROM THE NEZ PERCE/COL. GIBBONS BATTLE SITE AT BIG HOLE, MONTANA. Cal. appears to be 45 Colt. SN: unable to determine. This wonderful, relic condition, single action was excavated from the Big Hole Battlefield in the late 1950’s and was gifted to the consignor by his friend, Arnotte Millett. This well documented battle occurred on Aug. 9, 1877 when Chief Joseph’s Nez Perce Tribe, fleeing to Canada, were surprised and attacked by Colonel Gibbon’s 7th Infantry. Chief Joseph, one of the finest tacticians of that era, rallied his warriors and drove the infantry from the field and pinned them down until the rest of his band could escape. The Nez Perce, in their flight to avoid being confined to a reservation, were never defeated or captured over their several hundred mile journey through some of the harshest landscape in North America, outfighting and outmaneuvering the army all the way, they only surrendered after having become exhausted and starved, and thinking they were already in Canada. The revolver appears to have been a standard Colt, probably a 5-1/2″ artillery model and remains as found with five chambers of the cylinder containing brass cartridge cases with chamber under hammer empty, as was standard practice in the army. It appears that the revolver was in the process of being cocked when it was dropped, leading one to speculate that the trooper carrying it was struck down in the process. It is missing complete ejector rod housing, grip; hammer spring, & loading gate. All five of the loaded chambers have visible cartridge cases with one appearing to have lead or something of that nature where someone has dug into the cartridge case head. The entire surface of revolver has massive pitting from its long internment. Accompanied by a small framed diorama with a photograph of Chief Joseph and another of the battle site with a cluster of standing teepee poles. Attached to the back of the diorama is a notarized statement by Arnotte J. Millett dated 11 26, 1992 wherein he states that this revolver, as found, was presented to him in the early 1950’s by “Harry Too Good, an Indian guide relative and owner of the French Basin Ranch in Southwest Montana”. He also states that he was told this revolver was found on the Big Hole Battlefield near Wisdom, Montana. An extremely rare relic of one of the most incredible Indian/military engagements in history. CONDITION: As noted, extremely heavily pitted with a very dark brown crusty patina with soil in bbl and openings around the cylinder. The diorama is fine. 4-59489 JR178 (10,000-30,000)
