Click on images for enlarged versions.

.44 cal, 1 5/8'' barrel with a very good-fine bore which shows some oxidation. The barrel is a very nice plum brown patina with random pattern bronzing, featuring only a brass stud blade front sight. The breech features a rounded bolster and is sans the inlays however is appropriately Deringer and sunburst P marked with light engraving on the tang, both showing a mottled blue-gray case-hardened patina. The lockplate is appropriately marked as well and shows loose open flowing scroll and a somewhat flat hammer without the later offset, hammer and lockplate showing some lovely fading color case-hardening. The German silver engraved triggerguard bow, pineapple front extension, cap splash guard, flourish sideplate, wedge escutcheons and shield shaped monogram plate are all neatly engraved with light engraving on the teardrop and none on the triangle nosecap inlay. The stock rates very fine with a tiny bit of added finish but with crisp checkering. The lock is crisp and mechanically functional. A very nice variation in a very fine state of condition.
