Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #301, 41 RF, 3'' barrels with oxidized bores and faint rifling along with a retractable 1 3/4'' cruciform blade. The metal surfaces of the barrel show evidence of a light cleaning long ago with markings no longer visible and toning to a medium gray patina with remnants of old pitting. The hammer and trigger are a similar gray patina with scattered old pitting. The brass frame shows strong remnants of on older applied lacquer finish with minor flaking and small dings scattered about. The smooth rosewood grips are stamp-numbered to the gun and remain in very good condition retaining strong original finish with minor flaking, small dings and ''EH'' lightly carved into the left panel. The hammer functions crisply and the knife and barrel-to-frame fit show a little play. This is a solid example of these interesting knife pistols. (138931-129) {ANTIQUE} (800/1200) Sold For 1725.00
