Click on images for enlarged versions.

.44 cal, 1 7/8'' barrel with a lightly oxidized bore. The barrel is a fading pewter brown, nearing pewter patina with strong remnants of the lightning bolt bronzing still present, with a couple spots of very light oxidation as well. There is a scant dovetailed blade German silver front sight with dual inlaid silver bands at the breech showing appropriate makers marking and sunburst P firing proof. The tang shows some nice light engraving which continues onto the lockplate and the hammer. The lockplate and the hammer shows some trace color case-hardening, the balance a mottled silvery and pewter case-hardened patina. The pineapple triggerplate extension, bow of guard, cap splash plate, wedge escutcheons and flourish sideplate all show the typical light tasteful engraving with teardrop-shaped gripcap and shield shaped monogram plate showing only very light borderline engraving, the triangle nosecap plate unengraved. The stock rates a very fine to perhaps near excellent showing much original varnish, only showing scattered flaking, with crisp checkering in the grasping area. The lock is crisp and mechanically functional. A very attractive 5 5/8'' overall length Deringer pocket pistol. (38751-19) {ANTIQUE} (1800/2200) Sold For 1495.00
