A beautiful cased pair of English MUFF or POCKET pistols with "pop-out" triggers in excellent condition. They are marked #2 and #3. The latter has a damaged percussion cap. .38 caliber with 1 & 3/4" screw off barrels and an overall length of 5".They are nickel plated with lots of engraving. The hammers, triggers and screws are blued. The stocks are finely checkered walnut with fancy nickel plated butt caps and unmarked escutcheon plates in the grip area for an owners initials or family crest.The wood appears unmarked and close to 100% in condition. . The barrels have some minor marks probably made in unscrewing them to load a charge. It is estimated that they were made in the 1830's.The case and liner are also in very good condition. There are some minor marks on the underside of the case. The case label has been professionally reproduced from the damaged original which will be included in the sale. The case lock does not work but there is a key for it, along with: a barrel wrench, powder flask made (and marked) by "Sykes", lead round ball shot, a bullet mold marked "84", and a round tin probably for percussion caps but containing some balls and small pellets. This is a complete set and in beautiful condition.
This is an antique so no FFL is required. It can be sent directly to a new owner (where the law permits).
