Looking for the realized and estimated price?

Description: .65 cal flint, 9" round barrel with a very good bore. The barrel is primarily a plum brown patina with traces of a dark gray blue along the stock line and on the tang and breech medials exhibiting very good British proofs on its left radius. The lockplate is a dark gray patina with some areas of light brown, the plate is deeply stamped with the East India Company's "prancing lion" with crown along with "Crown/3" just beneath the pan. The brass hardware is a pleasing dull goldenrod patina. The English walnut stock rates very good showing an old arsenal grade refinish many years ago, still with sharp edges showing a couple minor flakes or chips; there are no discernible markings and the stock is a rich tobacco-russet color. The swiveling ramrod is present and the lock is crisp and mechanically functional. A very good example of a prolific pistol used by the British cavalry throughout the Peninsular War. (36298-3) {ANTIQUE}
