EXTREMELY RARE GOLD FINISHED COLT 3RD MODEL 5TH VARIATION DERINGER. SN 14811. 41 cal. short rim fire. This special order piece was finished in the rarest of all finishes, overall gold gilt over silver plate. It appears to have been Class “C” engraved in the Nimschke style, maybe in their shop. PROVENANCE: Robert Lippincott, L.D. Eberhart Collection. CONDITION: The hammer & trigger still retain portions of the orig case color. The screw heads still retain some of their orig fire blue. The overall gun retains 85%+ of the orig gold wash with slight wear on the ejector housing from storage but no pitting. On the left side of the bbl, over the engraving, the gold wash is missing from storage & handling. The factory pearl grips are in orig condition and have bright luster. This is an extremely hard to find gun in this style of decoration. 4-47438 DE58 (3,000-5,000)
