Description:
Estimate: $1500 - 2250
No makers markings. The pepperbox is very similar to the Blunt & Syms small frame, but with a square butt, not the bag shaped grips. The 6 barrel cluster gauges at 30 caliber, has concave ribs and light floral scroll engraving on the breech ends. The frame and back strap are also floral scroll engraved with a sun burst on top at the breech. Underhammer ring trigger, all blue finish and fitted with smooth two piece varnished walnut grips.
BBL: 2 5/8 inch ribbed
Stock:
Gauge: 30
Finish: blue
Grips: walnut
Serial Number: NSN
Condition: Fine. The pistol retains 75% original blue finish on the barrels and 30% on the frame, mainly on the grip straps. The balance shows a smooth gray and brown patina. The action needs work, it does not function. The grips are excellent with almost all of the original varnish remaining, showing a few minor chips in the varnish and dings. The engraving is crisp.
