CASED NIMSCHKE ENGRAVED SMITH & WESSON TYPE IV NO. 2 ARMY REVOLVER. Cal. 32 RF. Spectacular example of Nimschke’s engraving, this revolver has 5” bbl with beautiful pearl grips, having a very deep-relief carved, early American eagle, perched on a Federal shield. The left side of the frame and bbl are beautifully engraved in typical Nimschke style of fine foliate arabesque patterns with punch-dot background. Bbl lug has Nimschke’s trademark dog’s head in the center and the sideplate, another dog’s head with an intertwining serpent toward the rear. The right side of the revolver, cylinder, backstrap, and top of the frame and bbl have the typical Nimschke engraving with intertwined foliate arabesque patterns and his trademark flower. It is readily apparent from the quality of the Nimschke engraving, to the spectacular carved pearl grips and silver plating, that this revolver was built for someone special. It is accompanied by a most unusual and distinct casing made of birdseye maple veneer with fine ivory banding. The lid, front and back of the case have decorative 15/16” wide thin ivory strips with delicate ivory bars and brass studs with ivory buttons as retainers. Each end has four more of the brass studs with ivory buttons. The center of the case is inlaid with a 3” x 2-1/8” scalloped ivory panel bearing the initials “DWB”. It is speculated by former owners that this was Daniel B. Wesson’s personal revolver. The interior of the case is lined with rose-colored chamois, French-fitted to the revolver, with two compartments, one of which contains a rare early black label box for Smith & Wesson No. 2 cartridges, by Smith & Wesson with patent date of April 17, 1860. Provenance: Don Lewis & John Otteman Collections. SN 25615. CONDITION: Exceedingly fine. The revolver retains 96-98% strong bright original silver plating with minor flaking on the cylinder, front and backstraps have some minor pimpling on the bottom of the frame. The extraordinary grips have lots of fire with one age line on the left side and are near perfect. The bore is bright and shiny with some minor scuffing in the grooves. The exterior of the case, with one or two small grain checks, retains most of its fine patinated original finish. One small ivory keeper on the back of the box is broken and another on the front is chipped, otherwise the ivory is all intact and has a beautiful mellow color. The interior is lightly faded with wear impressions under the gun and in the lid. The empty cartridge box is very fine, slightly soiled with a rub spot on the label, not affecting the lettering; all of the lettering is completely legible. The marbled green and black band is almost completely intact with one minor loss. A really fine box. . 4-49445 (40,000-60,000)

SPECTACULAR ONE OF A KIND CONRAD ULRICH ENGRAVED WINCHESTER MODEL 1866 LEVER ACTION RIFLE. Cal. 44 RF Henry. Considered to be one of Conrad Ulrich’s masterpieces, this spectacular rifle has a 24-1/4” oct bbl with half-nickel front sight and 900-yard Henry-type ladder sight with gold-plated receiver, buttplate and forend cap. It has highly figured, uncheckered stock and forearm with straight wrist and crescent brass buttplate. 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 foreend 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 Mr. Ulrich’s stamped signature in 2 places on either side of the hammer strain screw. These are extremely small signatures in a rectangle box. This rifle is pictured in full color, both sides, on page 113 of “Winchester Engraving”, by R. L. Wilson. SN 84015. CONDITION: Extremely fine. Bbl retains about 95% finish, turning plum on the top half with the sheltered areas having bright original blue.

SPECTACULAR PAIR OF NIMSCHKE ENGRAVED GOLD & NICKEL SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVERS. Cal .45 Colt. Unmistakably Nimschke engraving is found on this matched pair of revolvers. Its identifiable wavy line and dot borders, beautifully executed arabesque scrolls, punch-dot background, diamond patterns with dot centers, starbursts on either side of the cylinder pin and ejector rod housing swells and the elaborate and beautiful fan at the top of the backstrap are all Nimschke trademark patterns. These revolvers have 7-1/2” bbls and are fitted with wonderful and rare diamond checkered walnut grips. These grips are thicker than usual with a scooped plain flat where the grip meets the frame. They are very similar to a pair of grips found on another early single action currently in the Colt Collection at The Baldwin Museum of Connecticut History in Hartford and may have influenced these special grips.

This pair of Colts are identically engraved and have nickel plated bbls, frames, trigger guards and backstraps with gold plated cylinders, hammers and ejector rod housings. They have nitre blued cylinder pins, screws and triggers. All of which combines to make an extremely pleasing combination to the eye. With rare and unusual special checkered walnut grips, they are doubly pleasing. These revolvers were previously displayed in the Texas Ranger Museum at Waco, Texas from 1968 until 1976 when they were acquired by R.E. Hable. They have been featured in a number of books on Colt engraving by R.L. Wilson. These publications include, “The Book of Colt Engraving”, Vol. I. page 340 and “The Colt Engraving Book” page 226. Comparing the engraving on this fine pair of pistols with patterns pictured in the Nimschke Pattern Book reveals numerous identical features particularly on pages XXXIX and XXXV. Some of these details are unmistakably identical and leave no doubt that this pair of revolvers was done by the master himself. This may be the only known matching pair of Nimschke engraved single actions. Regardless if they are the only pair, engraved black powder revolvers as single items are extremely rare and pairs by any engraver are very, very limited. Accompanying these revolvers is a fine custom oak double casing, French fitted with plum colored suede-like material. There is a covered compartment in two opposite corners with light padding inside the lid. Also accompanies is a Colt Factory letter identifying these revolvers as being shipped June 28, 1876 in a 37 gun shipment to Spies, Kissam & Co. New York, N.Y. as blue finished guns. It is well documented that Spies & Kissam were valued frequent customers of Nimschke. Also accompanying is a note on Spies & Kissam Co. letterhead dated 1876 to the Sharps Rifle Co. In addition there is a letter form the curator of the Texas Ranger hall of Fame and Museum stating that these revolvers were displayed there. Also accompanying are three pages from the December 1954 Texas Gun Collector magazine with notations that a collector named Charles Ferguson of Decatur, IL had owned these revolvers. Also accompanying is a copy of a letter from R.L. Wilson to Edward L. Benson dated September 9, (year not indicated) stating that if he owned these revolvers he would not sell them. Also there is another letter from Mr. Wilson to Mr. Benson advising him that he would like to run photos of them in future publications and is soliciting a fee for color printing. And lastly is an undated, 6 page letter of authentication on these revolvers from Mr. Wilson. SN 25499 & 26094.

CONDITION: Extremely fine, apparently unfired. Retaining virtually all their fine original nickel finish and most of their gold plating. The gold plating, with years of handling, has become thin and dull, particularly on the cylinders and outside of the ejector rod housing on #26094. The grips are all extremely fine with one side having a small mark on the top right flat. The screws, cylinder pins and triggers retain virtually all their bright nitre blue. The bores are brilliant and shiny as one would expect from unfired guns. The case has a few grain checks in the lid, otherwise is sound and retains virtually all its fine custom finish. The interior is bright and clean. This is surely a once in a lifetime opportunity to own the very finest in single action revolvers. 4-49447 JR515 (250,000-350,000)

The serial number is found under the wood on the left side of the lower tang, in the top tang channel on the stock and again inside the toe of the buttplate. There is a large crude “M” scratched in the finish on the left side of the buttstock. This rifle’s serial number is consistent with other known Henry rifles that were issued to the 3rd Veteran Volunteers near the end of the Civil War. It apparently was part of their enlistment agreement that if they maintained their rifles in good order during their term of service they could retain them when they mustered out. SN 3957.

One of the entries dated Sunday the 8th (year not indicated) mentions that Dodd and someone else named Jim “came on to Captain Wimberlys staid (sic) all night”. SN 1979. CONDITION: Very good to fine. Bbl retains no original finish being a clean gray metal color with some light rust spotting. The stock appears to be a replacement as it is un-numbered and the buttplate is numbered to another rifle. It is sound and retains most of an old refinish. Bbl and lever have the appearance of metal which has gone through a fire, which would explain the replaced stock. The bolt is heavily rusted. The receiver and buttplate have been cleaned in the past and are now beginning to patinate. The magazine spring appears to be a replacement. Strong dark bore with moderate pitting. 4-49207 JR30 (25,000-35,000)

It appears that a recent minor modification has been made inside the channel, which removed the serial number. Looking at the carbine, it is conceivable that this is the original stock and has been on this gun a very long time. From the James D. Gordon collection, the gun is pictured on pg. 58 of The Winchester Book by Madis. SN 15176. CONDITION: Good to very good.

EXTRAORDINARY COLT SINGLE ACTION REVOLVER. Cal .45 Boxer. Nickel finish with 7-1/2” bbl, slanted script bbl marking with two line patent dates and 1-pc walnut grips. The left shoulder of the backstrap is stamped with a “C” and a tiny rampant Colt. The small “C” is also found on the frame in the hammer slot above the firing pin hole and again on the back of the cylinder. The caliber “45 CAL/B” is marked on the left shoulder of the trigger guard. The bottom of bbl and the cylinder between each chamber is stamped with tiny British proofs. The ejector rod housing is of the first type which is correct for this revolver. Colt factory records indicate that this revolver was shipped as it is here, on January 14, 1875 to Colt’s London Agency. The caliber in the record is listed as “45 Eley Long”. However, examination of the individual chambers disclose the short shoulder consistent with the 45 Boxer round as is marked on the trigger guard. The tiny rampant colt stamped on the left shoulder of the backstrap is explained as an import mark by Colt’s Agency in the United Kingdom, in “The Peacemaker and Its Rivals” by John E. Parsons. The “C” markings, according to “Colt Cavalry and Artillery Revolvers, A Continuing Study” by John A. Kopec and H. Sterling Fenn, were applied to individual parts at the Colt plant when they were found not to meet specifications, see pages 42 and 157. The “C” stamping, according to Kopec, was always placed in a conspicuous areas as is found on this revolver. After the contract for that particular run of revolvers was completed, Colt was allowed to salvage any serviceable parts which were then assembled into completed firearms and sold on the open market. It has been observed that a large number of these condemned revolvers were nickel plated which is consistent with this revolver. Bbl lettering, patent markings, serial numbers and “45 CAL” on the shoulder of the trigger are noticeably more shallow than normally found. The screw holes in the frame are also slightly dished which is not consistent with a first quality production item from Colt. Accompanied by a letter dated July 10, 2002 from R.L. Wilson wherein he states the information regarding the Colt records and that this revolver was in a shipment of three like items. Also accompanies is an undated three page letter from Mr. Wilson discussing this revolver. SN 15221. CONDITION: Extraordinarily fine, all matching, probably unfired, retaining most of its fine factory nickel with slight dulling at the muzzle edge. The left side of the frame has a few scattered tiny spots in the nickel, a couple of tiny flake spots around one of the flutes and a very light cylinder drag line. The screws retain virtually of their original factory blue albeit slightly dulled. The grips have very minor sharp edge wear with two or three tiny nicks in the surface finish and retain virtually their original bright varnish. Brilliant shiny bore. 4-49449 JR523 (25,000-30,000)

It is accompanied by a Colt factory letter indicating that it was shipped “soft” to Hartley & Graham, New York on December 5, 1883. It is well documented that Hartley & Graham was one of Nimschke’s primary customers. SN 102974. CONDITION: Very fine, all matching. Bbl and frame retain 80-85% original nickel finish. The cylinder, backstrap and ejector rod housing appear to be bare metal. The pearl grips are beautiful with great fire and a replaced chip at the right heel with a chip missing at the left toe.

COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER WITH TEXAS HISTORY. Cal. 45 Colt. Blue and case colored with 7-1/2” bbl and rampant Colt hard rubber grips.

Hall, 325 Central Park West, City”. The letter is quoted as follows “In reply to your favor of April 29th with say that the Winchester repeating model of 1873 is a very fine gun. In fact the Winchester people make none but fine guns. At the present day and for years past I have used nothing but Winchester rifles in big game shooting and also in my exhibitions. But during buffalo killing days I used the Springfield Breech loader and I think the Springfield Breech loader and the old Sharp rifle killed more buffalo than any other two guns. The revolver was very little used by professional buffalo killers. It was only the tenderfeet who used the revolver. Yours very truly,” and signed in ink W.F. Cody in his very distinctive style. It is accompanied by its original envelope with identical letterhead postmark dated “1910” and with a cancelled 2 cent stamp. Attached to the back of the letter are two newspaper columns with hand-written notes dated “July 11, 1917”, the day after Buffalo Bill died. CONDITION: The paper is yellowed with a water stain in the lower left corner and a small piece missing from the left edge, otherwise, the blue ink of the typewriter and Cody’s signature are sharp and distinct.

EXTREMELY RARE ALTMAIER REPEATING RIFLE. Cal .32. 26-3/8” oct bbl. Peter A. Altmaier of Harrisburg, PA, invented several complicated repeating rifles after the Civil War. This brass frame rifle is marked “P.A.ALTMAIER / PAT. REPEATING.DUPLEX RIFLE. / HARRISBURG. PA.” on top of bbl in front of the receiver. A German silver wedge is inserted in a dovetail in front of this marking and carries the initial “A.J”. From the style of the mechanism, this gun is related to his three 1886 and 1887 patents, number 334731 of 26 January 1886, 343883 of 15 June 1886 and 370032 of 27 September 1887. Copies of these three patents accompany the lot. The brass operating lever accomplished several things; it releases the breech block and slides it to the rear, moves the safety and cocks the hammer. It evidently had other functions as there are plug holes and old slots which are no longer used. It is broken behind the pivot point and is not currently functional. The sides of the receiver and the iron reinforcing piece around the top are slightly engraved with wigglework patterns. NSN. CONDITION: Iron parts have a light coating of dried oil, rust and dirt. The brass parts have a dark patina. Wood has light dents and scratches with some light paint marks. Action is not working. 4-49107 FS7 (4,000-5,000)

PIECE OF BARON VON RICHTHOFEN’S ALBATROS C.IX. Framed piece of painted laminated wood from a rare aircraft flown by the Red Baron. It is approximately 3” square and covered with a deep red paint. On the back is written “Albatros C.IX 4508/16 Richthofen” This piece of the Baron’s Albatros was given by G. Krupp to Robert James Braly on July 18, 1930 and there is a written notation by Mrs. Braly on the back of one of Mr. Krupp’s business cards stating that both she and Mrs. Krupp witnessed the gift. According to the notation, the Albatross had been stored in a building in the first airfield in Berlin with other planes being assembled for an air museum. This piece of aircraft has been examined by WWI fabric expert Alan Toelle, who is of the opinion that it is genuine. Only 3 Albatros C.IX aircraft were known to have been produced, one of which was flown by Richthofen. It was a two-seater reconnaissance plane with a marked sweep to its upper wings, fuselage and tail similar to D-type fighters, with a 160 HP Mercedes D.III engine. This is truly a wonderful piece of von Richthofen memorabilia. 4-50192 (2,000-3,000)

FABRIC FROM THE PLANE IN WHICH BARON VON RICHTHOFEN DIED. Original piece of fabric cut from Baron von Richthofen’s Fokker Dr.I 425/17 triplane. The fabric was souvenired by W. M. Hatcher of No. 3 Squadron, Australian Flying Corps. The plane and Richthofen’s body were removed from the crash site to the No. 3 Squadron’s hangars. Hatcher mailed the fabric to aviation historian Charles Donald from his home in Australia with an accompanying note. The fabric measures about 2” x 2-1/2” in size. Its outer surface is painted a deep red, some of which has chipped revealing sky-blue paint underneath, indicating that the fabric came from under the aircraft, which had been camouflaged before the Baron had it repainted in his color. This piece of fabric and the note appeared in “Cross & Cockade” Vol 10, No. 4 as an illustration in the article “Post-Mortem:Richthofen”. It appears on page 306 of the Journal. The lot also includes a reproduced photograph of von Richthofen with a stamp on the back indicating that it came from the collection of WWI photo collector Steve St. Martin. The fabric has been authenticated by noted WWI fabric expert Alan Toelle. Ex Charles Donald collection. 4-50191 (2,000-3,000)

The books include “Der Rote Kampfflier” 1933 Berlin ed. autographed by Heinz von Richthofen and an autographed first edition of P. J. Carisella’s “Who Killed the Red Baron?” There are also six binders of photographs of German pilots and aircraft, including over 30 8”x10” prints of Baron von Richthofen and his aircraft. There are also about 24 very large negatives (mostly 8”x10”) and about 120 smaller negatives (5”x7”) of German pilots and aircraft. Also included are two accordion file boxes containing numerous items pertaining to Richthofen and his mother, a copy of the Baron’s victory list, aircraft blueprints, an English translation of Baroness von Richthofen’s War Diary, scarce negatives, prints, correspondence, etc. An original 6”x9” pen and ink sketch of the Baron created by artist Jack Moses for Charles Donald is also included. This archive would be virtually impossible to duplicate today, and will be an essential resource to any historian interested in German WWI aviation in general and von Richthofen in particular. 4-50084 (3,000-5,000)

WWI BRITISH FLYING ACE ARCHIVE OF STEVE ST. MARTIN. This wonderful archive consists of seven very large (11”x14”) volumes containing photographs, clippings, magazine articles and other materials relating primarily to Britain’s WWI aces, although some Belgian aces are covered as well. St. Martin collected these materials by traveling around the world in the 1960s and 1970s visiting surviving combat pilots and their families and making copies of the materials in their scrapbooks and photo albums. There are approximately 3500 photographs in this archive, and numerous newspaper and magazine clippings, even a full-length color comic-book story of one pilot’s career. This fantastic collection is the product of many years of hard work and dedication. When St. Martin collected these materials, the surviving pilots were elderly. Now 30-40 years later, with the pilots deceased and their artifacts scattered, it would be impossible to assemble such a massive archive. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to obtain a unique and outstanding research resource, taken directly from primary source materials. 4-50085 (3,000-5,000)

This wonderful trophy is engraved “Presented to Clyde Pangborn by the City of Titusville, Penna. Oct. 28, 1931”.

Pangborn and Hugh Heroundon Jr. made the flight in 41hours and 13 minutes crossing from Japan to Wenachee, Washington on October 5th, 1931, after many delays, including a large fine levied by the Japanese government because the duo flew over a military area and took photos without permission. The floriform bowl is 11-5/8” in diameter and about 4” high. It is marked “HAND MADE, JOEL F. HUGHES, STERLING” on the bottom. The base is quite massive, the lip of the foot being over 1/8” in thickness. CONDITION: The inscription is a bit soft from polishing, and there are some scratches here and there but otherwise very good. A very rare opportunity to own a tribute to aviation history. 4-49243 (2,800-3,300)

SCARCE LUSITANIA MEDAL. Unusual bronze medal, 2-1/8” dia, cast by a German metalworker in August 1915. It depicts the Lusitania with an airplane and a cannon on her decks, sinking with the comment in German, “No Contraband”.

FACTORY ENGRAVED PRESENTATION WALTHER PP. Cal .32ACP Rare factory engraved Walther with 4” bbl and black Walther banner hard rubber grips. It is beautifully engraved over all the surfaces with the primary motif being deep relief oak leaves and acorns with a punch-dot background. The left grip has a 1” silver, laurel wreath oval engraved with the initials “CK”. These initials are believed to represent Curt Kaul, who was a Gruppenfuhrer (Lt. General) in the SS. In 1939 he is listed as the Chief of SS recruiting and in 1941 was appointed Chief of Police for Wurttenburg, Baden and Alsace. Accompanying this lot are about 38 reproduced Nazi documents relating to Gen. Kaul, several reproduced pictures and a paperback book of SS Officers List as of 30 January 1942. Gen. Kaul is listed in the index as number 54 and shows his decorations, lists his Nazi Party number as 244954, his SS number as 3392 and his date of birth 5.10.90. It shows that he was a General Lieutenant and had become a Colonel on 20.4.37. There are no other high ranking SS officers with the initials CK listed in this publication. SN 192920 which would indicate it was made just before Goering’s Walther. CONDITION: Good to very good. Traces of original blue remain inside the trigger guard, on the trigger and hammer with the balance having been cleaned. The engraving is worn and is now a cleaned metal color overall. The left grip shows heavy wear around the medallion and the right grip moderate wear. The finger rest magazine has also been cleaned and has moderate pitting on the left side. Bore is bright and shiny, good mechanics. 4-50064 (4,000-7,000)
