SN NSN. Cal. 36 over 20 ga. 26″ bbl. Mule ear side hammer ignition superposed rifle shotgun combination. Manufactured by Lefever & Ellis Canadaigua, NY during the period of 1863 through 1867. Typically known as makers of percussion target rifles, their combination guns are quite uncommon. 1-pc walnut buttstock with New York pattern iron patchbox and single piece brass buttplate. Drift adjustable, front sight with semi-Buckhorn rear sight. PROVENANCE: Lifetime Lefever Arms Collection of Scott Lefever. CONDITION: Very fine overall as bbls and lock and other iron have all turned a pleasant plum patina color. The very dark finished walnut buttstock is quite excellent with no breaks or material loss whatsoever. There exists an extremely small shrinkage crack on left-hand side forward of the wrist. Truly an exceptional example of an uncommon New York combination gun. 50255-2 TDW (3,000-5,000) – Lot 2193
