serial #5405/5724, 6mm RF, 1 1/2" part round part octagon barrel with a lightly oxidized bore showing faint rifling. The metal surfaces of this palm pistol retain about 98% original nickel finish showing a couple tiny areas flaked to gray patina, light freckling and some overall areas of clouding. The top cover is marked "LE PROTECTOR / SYSTEME E. TURBIAUX" with the reverse marked "Bte S.G.D.G. EN FRANCE ET L'ETRANGER / PARIS". The smooth black hard rubber grip inserts remain in near excellent condition showing a few light scratches and some minor discoloration on the top cover. The knurling on the cover is crisp and the mechanism seems to function well mechanically and features a sliding safety. An excellent example of these French-made variants of the peculiar palm pistol design, these much smaller than their American counterparts. (138931-120) {ANTIQUE} (1500/2500) SOLD FOR $2,530.00
