Title Pair of overcoat pistols
Nationality British
Period c 1830

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.

Excellent information, Chris, you've been making a big effort! I will spell it out more closely (I'm a historian!) and don't think Bezdek can add much more.
