SN 7061. Cal. 45 ACP. 10-1/2″ bbl. This fine Colt Thompson retains its orig 1921 parts and is remarkable besides being a nice Model 1921 as it is one of a consecutively numbered pair being offered in this auction. This specimen is fitted with an unmarked “cutts” compensator with 4 slots, and includes one 30 rnd U.S. Cartridge Co. magazine. Matching numbered upper and lower.

**HITACHI MANUFACTURED JAPANESE TYPE 99 MACHINE GUN WITH SPARE BARREL (FULLY TRANSFERABLE).

SN 18314. Cal. 7.7 Jap. 26-1/2″ bbl with flash hider. This Type 99 shows as registered by Pearl MGF Corp, in block 3A of current registration form. Is marked on left side of receiver as having been manufactured by Hitachi in Nov. of 1944. Bolt is numbered 6838. First bbl is SN 18314 manufactured in Oct. 1944. 2nd bbl is numbered 7212, manufactured in Nov. 1943. One orig 30 rnd magazine is included numbered both 4268 and 4740. This particular specimen is typical of the later manufacturing processes and includes the mono-pod on the buttstock and also a smooth wood pistol grip. The carrying handle on bbl 7212 is also of the smooth configuration and the bbl includes what appears to be an orig flash hider. Buffer & operating piston match gun SN. There is a small weld blemish at the lower edge of the ejection port, which indicates that at one time this was probably a deactivated gun. Charging handle cover not present as is often the case on these Japanese machine guns, but this does not in any way affect its function. Bbls fit very snugly into the receiver, wedge type retaining nut, also snug. Head space shims not present on either bbl. Bolt moves freely within the action, spring tension is good. This weapon appears fully functional. This is a National Firearms Act item and requires BATF approval prior to transfer. This item is fully transferable on an ATF Form 3 or Form 4. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is good to very good with a light coat of oil over a mostly brown finish with many areas of light pitting visible. When you consider the part of the world and climate that this gun was subjected to, its appearance is consistent with a gun that saw use in one of the combat areas. Several small gouges & dings on the buttstock as well as some scrapes and scars, yet it remains very solid and serviceable. Magazine is in very good condition with a coat of black enamel paint. Lower serial numbered bbl bore is very good with shiny lense. Gas block held in place by a roll pin. Flash hider has sustained a small 1/2″ ding at the 10 o’clock quarter near the socket and also slightly dinged at the muzzle. Left ear of front sight slightly bent inward, but this could be remedied with careful heating and straightening. Other bbl without flash hider has an excellent bore. Both carrying handles in extremely fine condition without any chips. The Japanese type 99 machine gun was the result of the Japanese military going to a larger heavier caliber cartridge in response to request for a rifle cartridge with more stopping power. There are conversion kits out there which allow this gun to be fired in 7.62 X 39 MM. Whether you fire this gun in the orig 7.7 MM Jap rimless or 7.62 X 39, it is a comfortable gun to shoot and an interesting part of WWII history. This is a desirable specimen as it includes an orig magazine as well as 2 bbls. 50455-6 JWK27 (8,000-12,000) – Lot 3023

Please Note: It has been brought to our attention that some of the components including the stock were not manufactured at the same time. However, these abnormalities or misconfigurations are likely late factory production with mismatched parts or was reconfigured shortly thereafter since the gun was a “bring back” and arrived in this country shortly after the war in this current configuration.

*OUTSTANDING AND HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER GERMAN MAUSER K98K LATE WAR TURRET SNIPER RIFLE.

SN 10414F. Cal. 8mm. This is a very late war turret sniper rifle as issued to snipers when they went to sniper school and carried by that sniper from that day on. Manufactured at “Mauser/Oberndorf” with final inspection eagle over 135 on left side of receiver band. Rings are SN 5934 and do not match rifle. Exhibits Kriegsmodel screw on bands, no bayonet lug, shortened sniper safety, and cupped buttplate marked “brg” (H.W. Schmidt Metalwaren). All numbers are matching and orig nothing has been altered in any way since it left the factory. Stock not numbered externally, nor any cartouches visible. Scope is an Ajack 4 X 90, SN 51799. Orig sling and sight hood present. CONDITION: Overall finish and appearance simply outstanding near mint with some brassing and loss of finish at both ends of the scope with some mottling to the gray of the buttplate. Rifle and scope are in excellent condition, probably picked up at a Depot or training school by a U.S. GI. Wood stock has some slight handling marks. Solder of scope bases visible which is a testament to the originality. These guns were made to be used, not for collectors. Bore is perfect, shiny and bright. Optics are clear. Impossible to upgrade this specimen. If you are fortunate enough to own it, you need not look at another. 50821-5 JWK63 (15,000-20,000) C&R – Lot 3087

Please Note: The small bone shield inlay referenced in the description is a professional replacement. When we acquired the gun, the shield was ivory. Due to President Obama’s new Ivory laws, it would have been illegal to offer with the ivory. The work was done by one of the country’s leading antique restorers and is an excellent undetectable job.

*◊ MAGNIFICENT, LARGE RING MAUSER C96 CARBINE, PRESENTATION QUALITY, WITH EXTRAORDINARY ENGRAVING AND GOLD HIGHLIGHTS.

SN 587. Cal. 9mm Export. Mauser made relatively few Large Ring Carbines, especially in 9mm Export. This spectacularly embellished gun has standard mechanical features including a 14.5″ bbl with a shallow ramp for a dovetailed bead front sight and a slip-in 50-500 rear sight. Long extractor, 2-lug firing pin, and large ring hammer. Instead of the usual chamber address this Carbine is marked with a gold inlaid “W. GLASER”. The SN “587” is on the left chamber flat. The left side is marked with the Crown/Crown/U while the right side has the antler proof. The full SN on the left side of the frame is repeated on the adjacent stock lug, on the hammer, the bolt stop, the subframe, and the locking lever. Disassembly shows a matching follower grooved for 9mm, a matching floorplate and matching subframe components. As true for standard production guns, major components are rust blued with a fire blued extractor, rear sight components, bolt stop, safety, and stock lug. The trigger is strawed. Lavish floral engraving, bordered in gold highlights, extends to each side of the hammer, the top of the bbl and around the front sight. The stock lug is engraved in a continued and complimentary pattern on each side in addition to the upper and lower arms. Unlike most carbines that have a smooth forend and buttstock, this example has fine bordered engraving on each side of the pistol grip and under the forearm, accented by a delicate Mother-of-Pearl and silver wiring that is also used to border the buttplate. An unmarked heraldic shield, made of bone, is in the toe line of the stock. PROVENANCE: Collection of Dr. Geoffrey Sturgess. CONDITION: At least 99% bright blue with negligible sharp edge wear. Comparable condition fire blue and straw. Forearm and buttstock are nearly new, with crisp checkering and only the most minute handling dings. Neither the Mother-of-Pearl, bone, or wire inlays show any losses. Same immaculate condition applies to buttplate. Mirror bore. Perfect manual mechanics. A truly spectacular carbine whose beauty should transcend the field of firearms enthusiasts. 43475-39 LMA (20,000-40,000) C&R – Lot 3102

A panel of checkering was performed on both sides of stock above trigger and to rear of receiver.

The case colored lever retains virtually all of its vivid case colors. The extra fancy walnut stocks have several very small abrasions and scratches at the very toe area, but retain virtually all of its deep piano finish. One small repair has been performed on the forearm at the very back left top. A small chip of which the orig. material has been reattached and is stable. A spectacular engraved Savage with factory documentation. 50506-63 TDW (7,500-12,500) C&R – Lot 3252

Tarnished nickel oval near toe of stock and skeleton buttplate with fully checkered center. Splinter forearm checkered in standard “C” grade pattern with finely scroll engraved Deeley latch and steel tip.

*UNIQUE, UNMARKED, EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH GRADE LEFEVER EJECTOR GUN BEAUTIFULLY FILED, VERY LITTLE ENGRAVING WITH EXTRA BARRELS.

SN 15193. Cal. 12 ga. 2-5/8″ Chambers. 28″ and 30″ Damascus bbls, both have matted, concave ribs. 30″ Set is only marked with SN. 28″ set has SN but has additional number “15741”. (The second set of numbers usually denotes either the extra bbls, or later factory work. Most likely this number simply denotes the extra set of bbls.) Both sets are beautifully struck and polished, and have very unusual double ogee raised areas near juncture of action, where most high grade Lefevers have only the single/ rear ogee. 30″ Bbls are somewhat darker in color, and do not have nearly the definition to the Damascus pattern as do the 28″ bbls. Case hardened, Lefever type action with pivoting bolt, later style cocking hook, and in-frame ejectors has early type sideplates incorporating sears and trigger pull adjustment screws, along with usual cocking indicators. SN of this gun predates the present cocking and ejector system, and this gun was undoubtedly returned to the factory for these improvements at a much later date. Early style cross pin has been removed and holes plugged with ivory. Action is beautifully filed with fine fillets and beads. Rear portions of lockplates are stepped, as is found in only the highest grade Lefevers (B and up). Fences are filed in atypical graduated arcs. Most high grade Lefevers have some form of cloverleaf carving to fences. The only engraving consists of well done geometric borders around top lever and along sides of top strap, along with some borders around screw heads, which have very fancy sunburst engraving. Plain case hardened trigger guard has a bit of border engraving at tang, along with SN. Exceptionally fine, beautifully figured and marbled European walnut capped pistol grip buttstock measures 14″ over checkered hard rubber buttplate, as is most often seen on D.M. Lefever guns. Drop points are of nicely carved arrowhead type. Checkering is of the first order in point pattern with line borders, and chip carving around base above unusual checkered hard rubber grip cap. There are more closely spaced borderless checkered flairs up toward comb and butt in fancy outline separated from main checkering by thin ribbons. Comb is fluted in typical Lefever high grade style. A vacant gold shield is on toe line. Matching splinter forend with large inset fancy horn tip, is near fully checkered with various spacings, borderless, in very fancy pattern with ribbons separating panels. Rear panel behind late style steel escutcheon is in the form of a shield. 30″ BBLS: Bore diameter: left -.745, right – .745. Bore restrictions: left – .031 (full), right – .031 (full).

CONDITION: Excellent, mostly original, as found. 30″ Bbls retain nearly all of what is most likely an old re-brown with a few light marks. 28″ Bbls retain approx 95% fine orig brown with fine definition to pattern, lightened just a bit around forend, and with some lightly rubbed spots. Action retains about half of its orig case hardening color, which is quite vivid where protected. Lockplates retain over 80% of their color. Color is very strong on trigger guard bow, silvered somewhat on edges, and at grip. Stocks retain nearly all of what appears to be their orig hand rubbed oil finish, with a number of light marks, grain slightly raised, checkering lightly worn. Bores are excellent, with a hint of frosting in 28″ bbls. Action is tight. Bbls are on face. Ejectors are strong and in time.

Please Note: In regards to this signed Conrad Ulrich masterpiece. We have just learned that the stock is not the original stock. The original stock was refinished and had average wood. In the last couple of years, it was upgraded with another antique Model 66 rifle stock having great wood and wonderful finish. We understand a number of these truly special engraved Model 66’s have had similar changes. The current stock is outstanding, appropriate and had we not been told and verified this, we would never have been able to determine it.

SPECTACULAR HIGH RELIEF ENGRAVED GOLD WINCHESTER MODEL 1866, CONRAD ULRICH SIGNED MASTERPIECE.

SN 84015. Cal. 44 RF Henry. Considered to be one of Conrad Ulrich’s masterpieces, this spectacular rifle has a 24-1/4″ oct bbl with Winchester and King’s improvement markings in 2-lines, half-nickel front sight and scarce 900-yard Henry-style ladder rear sight with tension spring mortise in top flat. Gold-plated receiver, buttplate and forend cap. It has highly figured, deluxe burl and flame grain uncheckered straight stock and forearm with crescent buttplate with trap. It has factory sling loops in the forend cap and stock. The receiver, forend cap and buttplate are masterfully engraved in Mr. Ulrich’s now-famous and well-known patterns. The receiver has deep relief vignettes of blind justice holding the sword and scales of justice in between 2 buildings. The front flat on the left side, also in deep relief, depicts a very detailed hunter holding a gun with his dog in the background in a Greek-style arch with a tiled roof building in the background. The right side, also in deep relief, has a vignette of a hunter with his dog holding a gun and directing the dog. The front flat on the right, also in deep relief, pictures a standing stag in foliate and floral setting. The left side vignettes are surrounded with beautifully executed foliate arabesque patterns and a Greek key motif, which divides the 2 panels. The front and rear edges of the receiver have Ulrich’s beautiful four-petal flowers in a chain completely around the circumference. The rear edge of the left flat has 2 small pinwheels. The right side vignettes are also surrounded by foliate arabesque patterns with a fox, a duck and a squirrel concealed within the engraving. The hunter and dog have foliate and floral foreground and the 2 pinwheels appear opposite the left side. The top of the receiver in back of the ejection port, is executed in three panels of fine foliate arabesque engraving with the center blank for effect or for an inscription. The bottom of the receiver is lightly engraved with a split foliate spray divided between the carrier and floorplate. A fine line is engraved around the lever and trigger openings with a spray of foliate engraving back of the trigger. The top tang has simple borders with a space in the middle. The bottom tang has a simple line border with foliate arabesque engraving around the rear screw hole. The buttplate tang is engraved with an outline of foliate arabesque patterns and a plain center. The forend cap has a circle of four-petal flowers that matches those on the receiver. All of the work has Mr. Ulrich’s fine, detailed wavy borders and extremely fine punch-dot background. The vignettes have a plain background which wonderfully offsets the relief decorative work on the figures. The lower tang has Ulrich’s stamped signature in 2 rectangular cartouches rear of SN. This rifle is pictured in full color, both sides, on page 113 of “Winchester Engraving”, 1975, by R. L. Wilson. This is among the handful of truly spectacular relief carved Winchesters known. PROVENANCE: William Sisney Collection; Norm Vegely Collection. CONDITION: Extremely fine. All matching and orig. Matching SN found in upper channel of buttstock and a script “6” on upper left tang. Bbl retains about 95% finish, turning plum on the top half with the sheltered areas having bright original blue. There are 2 or 3 small spots of moderate pinprick pitting with some scattered staining and light pitting on the right flat. The magazine tube is mostly a plum/blue with 3 spots of pitting. The receiver and forend cap retain about 96-97% of their beautiful bright gold plating with the exposed areas a dark mustard brass patina that blends very well. The buttplate retains about 75-80% original gold plating with the balance a dark mustard patina. The wood is sound and retains most of it’s high polish varnish. Mechanically excellent with crisp bright bore. 50412-12 (250,000-500,000) – Lot 4024

Please Note: Great News!! The factory letter incorrectly references the name of inscription to be “J.C.” rather than “J.T.” This is a very obvious mistake on behalf of the factory records or the interpretation of these records by Cody. The gun clearly and specifically is J.T. Torrence. We also have some valuable historical news related to J.T. Torrence. J.T. Torrence was a highly recognized US General attributed in the capture of the Confederate Rebel Raider John Hunt Morgan. He later in life became a railroad magnate associated with the Calumet Terminal Railroad and was instrumental in the creation of the elevated rail network in the city of Chicago.

SN SA25889. Cal. 44 SPECIAL. 4-3/4″ bbl. Revolver is beautifully factory engraved overall in a scroll style with the coverage level “C” documented in the Colt Factory Archive Letter. The barrel shows scroll engraving on both sides of bbl address, which also borders model and cal mark on left side. Frame is flawlessly engraved in the scroll style. Engraving extends onto rear flat of trigger guard. Backstrap is nicely scroll engraved on apron and butt. Trigger guard is engraved on bow and forward end. Top strap is wonderfully engraved on rear portion. Cyl is scroll engraved between flutes. Bbl shows a 1-line address on top with model and cal mark on left side. Frame shows a 2-line patent mark with a rampant Colt at rear. SN is stamped on forward flat on frame. Colt factory letter confirms all features, including grips, and showing shipment on October 1, 1982. Also included is the Colt custom shop box, whose end label confirms all features. In Don Wilkerson’s famed book on Page 215 “The Post-War Colt Single Action Revolver 1976 – 1986” Wilkerson states that the Colt Records show that only 1% of Colt Factory Engraved Revolvers were in “exotic finishes, gold, silver, dual etc.” In addition on the same Page 215 Wilkerson states the Colt Records show only 7% of Factory Engraved Single Action Army revolvers were in the caliber 44 Special. Combined, the Colt records referenced in Don Wilkerson’s book makes this “Full Gold Plated” revolver one of the rarest of all factory engraved 3rd generation single actions. In addition, the Colt Factory pricing-guide of “Full Gold Plating” is so expensive that The Colt Custom Shop does not even list the pricing of “Full Gold Plating” but rather states “Price on Request”. The gold plating completely encompasses the revolver including inside the cylinder chambers, inside the barrel, the grip straps under both grips, etc. The revolver was truly “fully gold plated” by the Colt Factory. PROVENANCE: The Vince Sepulveda Collection, Colt Factory Archive Letter. CONDITION: New. Un-fired. Gold Plating is immaculately intact.

MAGNIFICENT CASED PAIR OF GOLD DAMASCENE AND IVORY MAURER REVOLVERS WITH SERBIAN ROYAL CREST.

SN 77572/77571. This truly magnificent cased pair of large frame 12mm Lefaucheux pin-fire revolvers have the Royal seal applied in gold in high relief gilted brass 2-1/4″ x 2-1/2″, on top of casing, details of the crest are quite well defined with dates 1389-1815 and Latin motto (Tempus et Meum Jus) which translates to “The time is right”. Guns are magnificently inset in gold floral damascene covering most of the metal surfaces of the pistols. Top bbl flats of 6-1/4″ full oct bbls are also decorated in gold “DECEMBER 1862” Each gun is numbered 297 on front of bbl lug with SNs found externally on left side of frame and bbl housing SN 77572 & 77(5)71. Screws still retain excellent engraving and only a couple show signs of ever being turned. Guns are beautifully gripped in elephant ivory. Pistols are in a fine blue velvet lined case with a loose blue silk liner with embroidered rosette for display. Embossed in gilt on top lining “GEBRUDER MAURER IN WIEN”; the Maurer brothers were well known vendors of high grade gold embellished arms of the mid-19th century. Each gun is marked on left flat of bbl near breech “E. LEFAUCHEUX / …BREVETE”. Various proofs showing manufacture by Auguste Francotte in Liege. Francotte is generally recognized as the finest gunsmith of Liege in the mid 19th century. These guns display beautifully.

CONDITION: Very fine overall, pistols retain most of their bright blue, almost black finish, with balance grey/plum. The only major loss of blue is on gun SN 77571 on left and top of bbl and about a 1″ by 2″ area where the blue has been worn through. Still with sharp edges and gold insets intact. Gold damascene work is virtually 100% intact on both guns with only minor cosmetic losses. “Certifiable antique elephant ivory” grips are well fit with patina. This pair originally had inset Serbian Royal Crests at back of frames, these are now missing. Orig casing is missing its central set of partitions seen on other identically cased Maurer pistols which would have retained tools and insets for each pistol. However, the two long lidded compartments are intact, one retaining its orig “certifiable antique ivory” cylindrical oiler with gilted brass finial in suite to finials on compartment lids. See James Julia Auctions, Lot 2281, March 15, 2016 for an identical set with proper inset compartments in case and original royal crests on backstraps. Ornate brass inlay on orig casing is intact with only a couple small reductions. Box is also decorated with engraved brass corners. All brass mounts exhibit deep mustard colored patina. The large ornate medallion surrounding the royal seal is inscribed like the guns “DECEMBER 1862”. Embossed gilt agents marking is crisp as seen inside top lid on padded velvet liner. Other retained velvet in casing is fine with bright royal blue color. Box is sound and solid overall, retaining much of its dark finish with normal cosmetic dents, scratches and wear expected.

SN NSN. Cal. 12mm. Just over 8″ overall with 3″ bbls, pictured and described on pgs 30-32 of Systeme Lefaucheux, Chris Curtis, 2002 “The pepperbox…is undoubtedly the type that was taken to England by Casimir Lefaucheux as part of his display at the 1851 London Exhibition. It is marked internally on the breechplate, “Lefaucheux Brevete Inv 37”. Externally, the pistol’s frame is acid-etched with the Lefaucheux name and business address, “rue de la Bourse 10 a Paris Ivion Lefaucheux Bte.” The firm moved from the above early address to a new and larger location in Paris at 37 rue Vivienne, sometime between January and July of 1850. The catalogue for the 1851 London Exhibition notes the new address, and lists Caisimir Lefaucheux as an “inventor and manufacturer of rifles, fowling pieces and pistols on his new principle…Despite the praise heaped on his American competition, the London Exhibition of 1851 was a professional triumph for Casimir Lefaucheux. He was awarded a Medal of Honor for his display, No. 1308, which was the first step toward universal recognition and acceptance of the pinfire system throughout the world. Unfortunately, Casimir Lefaucheux did not live long enough to reap the full rewards of his inventive genius and pioneering work, which altered the evolutionary course of firearms development. He died in Paris on August 11, 1852 at the age of fifty, less than a year after the close of the London Exhibition. All Lefaucheux arms made during the era of Casimir’s reign – single-shot pistols, pepperboxes, and shotguns – were of the highest Old World quality and craftsmanship. But they were not manufactured in sufficient numbers nor over a lengthy enough period to achieve commercial success during their inventor’s lifetime. Few examples survive, and today any such Lefaucheux arms constitutes a prized addition to a collection of early cartridge firearms”. Accompanying this pistol is a signed copy of Chris Curtis’ “Systeme LeFaucheux” where this gun is pictured, illustrated and described. PROVENANCE: Ex-Chris Curtis Collection. CONDITION: Fine overall. Bbls are cleaned and overall grey/white. Frame and receiver retains some high polish to raised relief work with a stippled with a plum/grey background. Fluted ebony stocks are sound and solid with small cosmetic blemishes including 2 thin long chips at rear left. Mechanically, gun rotates indexes and drops hammer and appears functional. Bores show discernible lands and grooves with no twist. 50269-2 JS (5,000-7,000) – Lot 4327

HISTORIC EDWIN FORREST ARCHIVE OF EXCEPTIONAL CASED PAIR OF HENRY DERINGER DUELERS WITH A THOMAS SULLY PORTRAIT OF FORREST, 1839.

SN NSN. Cal. 54. 12-1/2″ overall, 7″ oct bbl, engraved German silver and steel mounted. These guns are in spectacular condition, retaining virtually all of their orig finish and according to authority Doug Eberhart who once owned these stated they are “they are the best of their kind”. Accompanying these duelers is a 35″ x 28.7″, 1839 dated Thomas Sully oil on canvas portrait. Edwin Forrest (1806-1872) was probably the most popular American actor of his day. In 1823, Forrest, according to his memoirs, became friends with James and Rezin Bowie and at some point was given Jim Bowie’s favorite knife. Whether Forrest in some of his grandiose recollections actually possessed Jim Bowie’s Bowie or not, the knife along with these Deringers are among spectacular arms he did own in the mid-19th century. As Mr. Forrest had no heirs, he established the Edwin Forrest Home near Philadelphia as a retirement home for old actors. In a arms display case were various arms belonging to Forrest along with his other effects that the Board of Governors of the the Edwin Forrest Home sold in 1988. Regardless of any history this is no doubt among the most beautiful pair of Henry Deringer cased pistols extant. PROVENANCE: Pistols: Edwin Forrest Home, Philadelphia; Ex-William R. Williamson Collection, 1988; pictured on page 109 of Steel Canvas, R. L. Wilson; Ex-Doug Eberhart Collection. Painting: Ex-Doug Eberhart Collection. CONDITION: Pistols are both extremely fine overall, though pistol on top (gun 1) has some light pitting on lock surface, hammer and trigger guard as seen in photos, along with hairline crack below lock and opposite lock that runs entire diameter of wood. Guns both retain most of their orig Deringer signature striped brown finish with only minor reductions and minor blemishes. Blued steel trigger guards and ramrod thimbles both retain most of their orig blue though gun 1) has about 10% loss of finish. German silver mounts have crisp engraving and are well fit and to their burl walnut stocks which retain virtually all of their orig varnish. Mechanically, guns are excellent with crisp shiny rifled bores with characteristic Deringer 7 lands and grooves. Casing is sound and solid with orig wood & brass combination tool, 3-compartment charging flask which retains much of its orig varnish and bright blue spring and scissor bullet mold also in excellent condition. Brown velvet interior is light stained, minor soiling and has professionally repaired central partition. Case retains orig functioning key. Exterior of case has typical storage dings, dents and bruises, expected after 150 years, still retaining most of its orig varnished finish.

EXTREMELY FINE REMINGTON MODEL 1875 SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER.

SN 5054. Cal. 44. Nickel finish with 7-1/2″ bbl, full front sight and 1-line “E. REMINGTON & SONS” address. Mounted with 2-pc smooth ivory grips matching number on inside of each grip. The Remington Army was a fine revolver in its day and would have been serious competition for the Colt Model 1873 but it appeared on the market two years after the Colt, by which time Colt was well established with military contracts which Remington could never generate. Even though the Remington was every bit the equivalent of the Colt and many reported it superior, Remington did not have the distribution and contacts to reach widespread customers. Though there was an estimated 25,000 of this pattern manufactured, they are quite scarce as many were sold outside the U.S.This is a very crisp example which has apparent factory refinish as there are tiny plated over pits. Small star just forward on right edge of bbl is the only marking noted other than address. There is a known purchase of 639 nickel plated Remington’s for use by Indian police and at least 1,000 were purchased by the Mexican government and there was contract by the Egyptian government for 10,000 guns as this might be one. Regardless, this is a beautiful example that shows little or no use. Special Note: This item(s) contains plant or animal properties that may be covered by the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

FINE FIRST MODEL SMITH & WESSON SCHOFIELD WELLS FARGO NO. 648.

SN 6437421. Cal. 44 S&W. Wells Fargo attributed first model Schofield revolver. Single line roll die marked “W.F.& CO. EX.” with No. “648” hand-stamped beside the Wells Fargo marking. The 648 number is also stamped on butt of gun behind lanyard loop. Original Smith & Wesson number of 742l is still evident as is the original inspectors markings. 2-pc walnut grips with nickel silver escutcheons, single action design with 5″ key hole bbl. Front sight has been professionally moved to its new position after cut down. According to the Standard Catalog of Smith & Wesson by Supica & Nahas. “It is estimated that several hundred Schofields with the cut-down 5” bbls were purchased by Wells Fargo to arm its messengers. The guns were marked by the company on the right side of the under bbl ejector housing by stamping over the Schofield patent. The marking reads “W.F. & COS EX” along with a re-stamping of the gun’s SN. It’s believed that all authentic Wells Fargo Schofields have SN under 6000. CONDITION: Good as re-finished. Gun is an even plum finish overall. All markings are strong and visible and easily discernible. Bore is slightly dark and hammer needs slight adjustment. Polishing marks are imminent on sideplates and backstrap from removal of earlier corrosion. 2-pc wood grips are solid, however, have minor material loss on right grip at lower corners from wear and use. A nice piece of Western Americana. 50412-71 TDW (3,000-5,000) – Lot 4467
