HISTORICALLY SIGNIFICANT without a doubt, one of the rarest Smith & Wessons you'll find, or collect... This is a Model No.1, First Issue, 2nd. Type Revolver. This was THE FIRST self contained, Tip Up cartridge revolver introduced and made in 1857 by SMITH & WESSON. Beautiful condition, as restored to the way it was the day it was made in 1857.
A Fine Gutta-Percha case made for this First, First, Second... comes with the "little pistol that started it all" (Littlefield & Parsons)
It's been said, “Great Things Start From Small Beginnings!”- - as it was with the Smith & Wesson Model No.1, FIRST ISSUE, 2nd. Type revolver with the "bayonet" style latch, so desirable with collectors.
