Title Pair of overcoat pistols
Nationality British
Period c 1830
Sold

This is a fine pair of bronze-stocked pistols, covered in high-quality engraving, both on the barrels and stocks. From the engraving, I would judge these are Birmingham products rather than London. The barrels measure six-and-seven-eighths inches. The back-action locks have nice, crisp actions.

The calibre is between .45 and .50. There are no visible proof marks, but these could possibly be under the stocks.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

I should have written sooner, but I did want to let you know that the photos arrived safely and are absolutely fabulous. I could not be happier with them.

Thanks for the excellent service and great photos. I hope we have occasion to do business together again.
