Volcanic Lever Action Navy Pistol from the Winchester Collection

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Exceptional Volcanic Lever Action Navy Pistol from the Winchester Arms Collection/Cody Firearms Museum This is a very fine example of a historic Navy size lever action pistol manufactured by the Volcanic Repeating Arms Co. c. 1856. The pistol is complete with a letter from the Buffalo Bill Historical Center that states it was formerly part of the Winchester Gun Museum and was deaccessioned from the Winchester Arms Collection of the Cody Firearms Museum and sold at auction in June 1991. The pistol has the distinctive blue octagon barrel with integral magazine, gun metal receiver and casehardened lever with finger hole. The barrel has a brass cone front sight. A fixed rear sight is mounted in a dovetail on the receiver. The casehardened hammer has a knurled spur. The two piece flat bottom walnut grips have a high polish varnish finish. The top barrel flat is roll stamped "THE VOLCANIC/REPEATING ARMS CO./PATENT NEW HAVEN CONN. FEB. 14. 1854" in three lines. The barrel legend indicates that the pistol was manufactured by the Volcanic Repeating Arms Co. before the firm was reorganized as the New Haven Arms Co. by Oliver Winchester in April 1857. The serial number "1732" is stamped on the right side of the lever, the right side of the butt underneath the grip and on the inside of both grips. All of the visible serial numbers match. The Volcanic pistols and carbines were revolutionary firearms that combined a primed self contained rocket ball cartridge, integral magazine and repeating lever action. The Volcanic pistols and carbines drew shirt maker Oliver Winchester into firearms manufacturing. The Volcanic lever action and integral magazines were refined to serve as the basis for the successful New Haven Arms Co. Henry lever action rifles and the Winchester Model 1866, Model 1873 and Model 1876 rifles. Manufacturer: Volcanic Model: Navy Model BBL: 8 inches octagon Stock: Gauge: 41 Volcanic Finish: blue/brass Grips: varnished walnut Serial Number: 1732 Class: Antique Condition: Extremely fine. The barrel and integral magazine retain at least 90% of the original blue finish. The barrel has some very minor edge wear at the muzzle and numerous shallow wide dents present on both sides adjacent to the receiver. The blue has developed a slight plum colored patina. Most of the niter blue finish is present on protected areas of the cartridge elevator and bolt. The hammer and lever retain 80% of the original case colors which have faded to a mottled gray-brown patina. The brass frame and side plates are in fine condition with a few scattered handling marks (removal of the grips exposed much remaining silver plating). There are three very small dents in the top of the right side plate but the joints of both side plates are tight. The follower is a period replacement. The grips are very fine and retain nearly 90% of the original varnish finish with minor handling marks. The right grip has slightly more wear with a shallow dent next to the screw escutcheon, a small chip at the back edge and finish loss along the heel. The barrel markings and serial numbers are sharp. This is an exceptional example of a historically significant Volcanic Repeating Arms Co., Lever Action Navy Pistol from the Winchester Gun Museum. It would be hard to improve on this outstanding pistol.

Rare Winchester

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Exceptionally Rare Winchester "One of One Thousand" Model 1876 Rifle with Extensive Documentation Including a Factory Letter This fresh to the market Winchester 1876 "One of One Thousand" rifle was manufactured in 1879. The Model 1876 "One of One Thousand" rifles are among the rarest and most desirable of all American firearms. Winchester manufactured between 51 (Wilson) or 54 (Flayderman) of the specially selected and finished Model 1876 rifles and 136 "One of One Thousand" Model 1873 rifles. Only about 10 of the Model 1876 rifles have been located by collectors. The factory letter describes the features as: "Type: Rifle, Caliber: 45/60, Barrel Type: Octagon, Barrel Length: 28 inches, Trigger: Set, Checkered stock, Casehardened", and "1 of 1000". The letter states that this rifle was shipped from Winchester on November 25, 1879, in order number 17811 after being received on November 22. The rifle has a the Second Model receiver with screw fastened dust cover guide rail and dust cover with oval checkered finger guide. The receiver has a single set trigger. The full octagon barrel has a folding leaf rear sight graduated to "10" and marked "1876" at the top of the leaf and dovetail mounted sporting style front sight with extended base. The front sight appears to be a period replacement. The crescent steel buttplate has a sliding brass trapdoor. The stock and forearm are 2X fancy grade walnut with checkered panels. The barrel, full length magazine, dust cover and loading gate are blued. The forearm cap, receiver, hammer, trigger, lever and crescent buttplate are color casehardened. The top barrel flat is engraved "One of One Thousand" is script letters reading towards the receiver in an engraved panel with punch-dot and scallop borders and a scrollwork flourish at the muzzle end. This marking is identical to the marking on Model 1876 "One of One Thousand" serial number 10018 illustrated on page 120 of "WINCHESTER The Golden Age of American Gunmaking and Winchester 1 of 1000" by R.L. Wilson. The sides of the barrel below the "One of One Thousand" marking and the muzzle are decorated with tight scrollwork engraving on a punch-dot background. Single platinum bands are inlaid on the muzzle and receiver end of the barrel. "CAL.45-60" is engraved in script on the top barrel flat ahead of the rear sight. "WINCHESTER'S-REPEATING ARMS. NEW HAVEN. CT./KING'S-IMPROVEMENT-PATENTED-MARCH 29. 1865.OCTOBER 16.1860. is roll-stamped in two lines in front of the caliber designation. "45-60" is stamped in script numerals on the brass cartridge elevator. The serial number "9769" is stamped in script numerals on the lower tang behind the lever latch. Included with the rifle are a number of period documents. A copy of a newspaper article that apparently dates from the 1950 "Winchester '73" movie search identifies Will E. Martin of Carmel Valley, California, as the owner of a "One of a Thousand" Model 1876 rifle and states that it was purchased by his father, John Martin, in the 1880s. A copy of a letter from the Winchester Public Relations Director to "Mr. W.E. Martin" of Monterey, California, identifies rifle No. 9769 as a Winchester Model 1876 rather than a Model 1873 rifle and states that he does not qualify for the free Winchester Model 1894 rifle offered by the company to the first 20 persons who reported ownership of a documented Winchester Model 1873 "One of One Thousand" rifle as part of the "Winchester '73" movie promotion. A second letter, dated March 1, 1962, from Mr. T.E. Hall, Curator of the Winchester Gun Museum, to Mr. Gordon J. Martin of Stock, California, provides some details of Model 1876 "1 of 1000" rifles but does not mention Serial No. 9769. Manufacturer: Winchester Model: 1876 BBL: 28 inch octagon Stock: walnut checkered Gauge: 45-60 WCF Finish: blue/casehardened Grips: Serial Number: 9769 Class: Antique Condition: Fine. The rifle appears to be all original with the exception of the front sight which is a unique period customization. 40% of the original blue finish is present on the barrel and magazine with the blue aging to a plum patina. The scroll engraving and "One of One Thousand" markings are sharp. The platinum bands are tarnished. The caliber marking and factory legend are crisp. The barrel edges are sharp and the bore is bright. The blue finish on the dust cover has aged to a brown patina. 50% of the nitre blue finish is present on the loading gate. The casehardened finish on the forearm cap and receiver has faded to an attractive silvered out gray patina. The case colors on the forearm cap and receiver show age discoloration and light handling wear. The serial number and caliber designation on the cartridge elevator are sharp. The case colors on the hammer, lever and trigger have faded to a brown patina. The crescent buttplate has a deep brown patina with some scattered light pitting. The stock and forearm are both fine and show light to moderate wear with scattered light scratches and handling marks. The nicely figured 2X walnut has an attractive aged patina. This is a very attractive, untouched example of an extremely rare "One of One Thousand" Winchester Model 1876 rifle with solid documentation. This rare and extremely desirable rifle would be the centerpiece of the most advanced collection of Winchester rifles.

Buffalo Bill Presentation Winchester-1895-Carbine

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Rare, Historic and Extraordinarily Well Documented Winchester Deluxe Model 1895 Lever Action Saddle Ring Carbine Presented by Buffalo Bill (William F. Cody) to Deadwood Businessman and Friend M.R. "Gold Nugget Mike/Deadwood Mike" Russell with Factory Letter This is a rare deluxe version of the Winchester Model 1895 lever action carbine that was factory documented as presented by famed Wild West legend and showman Buffalo Bill to Deadwood, South Dakota, business mogul and longtime friend Mike Russell. This carbine serial number 38732 is pictured and described in R.L. Wilson's book "Buffalo Bill's Wild West: An American Legend" (pages 179 and 181). Cody used a Model 1895 on hunting expeditions, and he is known to have presented Model 1895s to friends. Also pictured and described in Wilson's book is a similar deluxe Model 1895 carbine that Buffalo Bill presented to David F. Powell, serial number 48751 (pages 179 and 181). Both of these carbines have a deluxe stock featuring a silver stock presentation plaque. Another presentation Model 1895 was presented to Chief Plenty Coups of the Crow Nation by Prince Albert of Monaco. At the time, Prince Albert was visiting Cody, Wyoming, and hunting with Buffalo Bill. Although Buffalo Bill did not personally present the rifle to Chief Plenty Coups, film footage of the presentation shows Cody present at the ceremony, even holding the gun, which had an engraved plaque on the stock. Speaking to Buffalo Bill's generosity, former Senior Curator of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center Dr. Paul Fees stated, "[Buffalo Bill] is known to have made several gifts after 1895, all Winchesters. After 1895 he is known to have purchased and presented several Model 1895 Winchesters in .30 government or .405 caliber to adult friends." The factory letter lists the date of serialization as October 2, 1902; confirms the carbine configuration; .30 caliber; oil finished fancy, checkered stock; Lyman front and receiver mounted sights; the "Coin silver plate in stock engraved: "Presented to M. R. Russel by his friend Col. W. F. Cody - Buffalo Bill"; "Name on right side frame: "M. R. Russell"; received in the warehouse on October 23, 1902, and shipped the following day as order number 151629.The silver inscription plaque on this carbine is found on the left side of the buttstock and reads, "PRESENTED TO/M.R. Russell,/BY HIS FRIEND/COL. W.F. Cody/Buffalo Bill." The right side of the receiver is marked "M.R. RUSSELL." The carbine is equipped with a pinned beaded blade front sight, military style folding leaf rear sight with tangent base and Lyman receiver sight. A saddle ring staple with ring is mounted on the left side of the receiver. The left side of the receiver also has the long two line address/patent information. The upper tang is marked "WINCHESTER/-MODEL 1895-." The top of the chamber has the caliber marking "30." Mounted with a highly figured finger grooved forearm, handguard and straight grip stock. The forearm and stock wrist feature multi-point checkering. The buttstock is fitted with a crescent buttplate with compartment. In 1863 Mike Russell arrived in the United States from Tipperary, Ireland, with $12.00 in his pocket and big dreams of fortune awaiting him on the Western frontier swirling in his head. He took a job with the Kansas-Pacific Railroad, and by the time he arrived in Deadwood, South Dakota, in early 1877, he had befriended buffalo hunter and future famed wild west showman William "Buffalo Bill" Cody and $516.00 to his name, which he used to start a saloon. Legend states that his nickname "Gold Nugget Mike" was in reference to a heavy chain of Black Hills nuggets that crossed Russell's vest. Russell also went by the nickname "Deadwood Mike," possibly a playful moniker inspired by the popular period fictional dime novel character Deadwood Dick. In Deadwood, his dream of making it big on the Western frontier had been realized. The story goes that Russell was so successful that his wealth was able to help Buffalo Bill out of a financial jam. After hearing that his friend was short of funds while performing in England, Russell wired Buffalo Bill $20,000 on a day's notice. A grateful Buffalo Bill showed his appreciation by sending a stuffed buffalo for Russell's Buffalo Bar, which was named after the legendary showman and for over a century has operated on Main Street, living on today as part of the Buffalo Bodega Complex. Russell and Buffalo Bill met in Kansas in the 1860s, and according to the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, "Russell was probably Cody's oldest and closet friends." Around 1895, Russell sold Cody cattle and horses under Russell's TE Brand, which Cody used to establish the TE Ranch southwest of Cody, Wyoming. At the time of Cody's death the 4,000 acre property, which borders the Yellowstone Timberland Reserve, supported 500 head of cattle. After Cody died in 1917, Russell remained in contact with the Cody family until his death in 1930. Cody received the nickname "Buffalo Bill" when after the Civil War he supplied Kansas-Pacific Railroad workers with buffalo meat. Note that the Kansas-Pacific was the same railroad Russell worked for before settling in Deadwood. Purportedly Buffalo Bill killed 4,282 buffalo in an 18 month period between 1867 and 1868. In 1883, he founded "Buffalo Bill's Wild West", a circus-like extravaganza that toured widely for three decades in the United States and later throughout Europe. His legendary show was a highly popular form of late 19th century entertainment that featured Native Americans and cowboys performing elaborate productions, which helped to solidify the legend of the American Western Frontier that still resonates today. During its existence, the show featured performances by people who are forever synonymous with the Western frontier and include such notables as Buck Taylor "King of the Cowboys," Annie Oakley, Frank Butler, Sitting Bull, Johnny Baker "The Cowboy Kid," Rough Rider Billy McGinty, Pawnee Bill, Dr. William Frank Carver, Montana Frank and Calamity Jane. In the winter of 1886, the show was retooled for an impressive four act indoor performance at Madison Square Garden. Famed American novelist Mark Twain admitted, "[The show] brought vividly back the breezy wild life of the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains, and stirred me like a war-song." In 1887, the show traveled to Europe. In all, Buffalo Bill’s Wild West toured Europe eight times. The first four tours occurred between 1887 and 1892 and the last four from 1902 to 1906, bringing to Europe an exotic form of American entertainment. Buffalo Bill was an international superstar. Speaking to Buffalo Bill's worldwide fame, Mark Twain stated, "It is often said on the other side of the water that none of the exhibitions which we send to England are purely and distinctly American. If you will take the Wild West show over there you can remove that reproach." Manufacturer: Winchester Model: 1895-Carbine BBL: 22 inch round Stock: deluxe walnut checkered Gauge: 30 U.S. Finish: blue Grips: Serial Number: 38732 Class: Curio & Relic Long Gun Condition: Very fine.

Evans Repeating Rifle Co   - Transitional-Rifle

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Historic Evans Model Lever Action Sporting Rifle with Factory Presentation Plaque Inscribed to Buffalo Bill (William F. Cody) Evans Repeating Rifle Company of Mechanic Falls, Maine, manufactured several models of lever action rifles from 1873 to 1879. This example is a Transition Model. It features a two-piece buttstock exposing the magazine in the center and a buttplate without a heel piece. This rifle is one of 1,050 Transition Model sporting rifles that were manufactured from 1876 to 1877. It has the Old Model action with flat top frame and exposed loading port. The Old Model type of action was retained by Transition Model rifles. The barrel has a pinched front sight and a two-leaf folding rear sight and is marked on top "EVANS REPEATING RIFLE MECHANIC FALLS, ME/PAT. DEC 8, 1868 & SEPT. 16, 1871" ahead of the rear sight. The forend cap, lever and trigger are nickel plated, and the remaining metal surfaces are blue. Mounted with a nicely figured smooth walnut forearm and straight grip stock. The left side of the forearm has a silver factory presentation plaque, that reads, "This Rifle Presented to/William F. Cody/May 12, 1877/By the Evans Rifle Co./Mechanic Falls, Me." Although there is no documentation at the time of this writing specifically linking this rifle to Buffalo Bill, author Dwight Demeritt, Jr. provides interesting historical context that connects this rifle to the legendary showman. In "Maine Made Guns and Their Makers," Demeritt explains, "The [Evans Company] followed the lead of other arms companies and presented specially made rifles to well-known personalities of the day. One such presentation made by the Evans Company was to William F. Cody (Buffalo Bill) on May 12, 1877. A rifle, allegedly the rifle that was presented to Cody, still exists and is what the author has described as the transitional model gun. It has the old model action with the two-piece buttstock" (page 138). Demeritt cites a Maine newspaper, the "Lewiston Journal" (no issue date provided), as his source of information. Note the similarities between the rifle Demeritt detailed in the aforementioned description and the rifle offered here: Transition Model rifle, presentation date of May 12, 1877 and Old Model action. The Evans rifle was one of the more novel repeating arms of the 19th century and had the largest capacity of any repeating rifle ever mass produced. Notable Western hero's such as Kit Carson, Texas Jack and Buffalo Bill used Evans repeating rifles. In at least one highly embellished retelling of Buffalo Bill's scalping of Cheyenne warrior Yellow Hair, which has been called "the first scalp for Custer," found in popular period dime novels, Buffalo Bill carries an Evans rifle. The prequel to the epic duel began with Buffalo Bill spotting two scouts on horseback about to be attacked by Indians. As it is told: "Instantly Buffalo Bill dashed over the ridge of the hill that concealed him from the view of the Cheyennes, and rode directly toward the band going to attack the two white horsemen. They halted suddenly at sight of him, but, seeing that he was alone, they started for him with wild yells. But still he kept on directly toward them, until within range, when he opened upon them with his matchless Evans rifle, a thirty-four-shot repeater, and a hot fight began, for they returned the fire." His act of heroism saved the two scouts, but soon his life was again endangered, this time by Yellow Hair. A firefight ensued that quickly devolved into hand-to-hand fighting. When the dust settled Buffalo Bill was victorious, holding in his hand the scalp of his assailant. This is one of many contradictory telling's of not only the duel but of Buffalo Bill's life in general. When it came to dime novels, truth was the first causality. Dime novels helped propel Buffalo Bill to legendary status and his Buffalo Bill's Wild West touring show made him world famous. Ned Buntline published a highly successful story and later novel loosely based on Buffalo Bill's adventures. From the 1870s through the early part of the 20th century, many sequels, which were written by Buntline, Prentiss Ingraham and others, followed. Manufacturer: Evans Repeating Rifle Co Model: Transitional-Rifle BBL: 26 inch round Stock: walnut Gauge: 44 Evans Finish: blue Grips: Serial Number: NSN Class: Antique Condition: Very fine. The rifle retains 85% original blue finish showing some minor thinning. The buttplate has a smooth brown patina. 85% of the original nickel finish remains. The lever catch is missing.

Capt. Jack Presentation Winchester Model 1873 Lever Action Rifle

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Well-Documented, Historic Factory Exhibition Engraved Winchester Deluxe Model 1873 Lever Action Rifle with Dual Presentation Plaques Presented by The Winchester Repeating Arms Company to Captain Jack Crawford and then Gifted to Fellow Western Scout and Poet James Barton Adams This rifle started life as a carbine in 1895 and was converted into a rifle by Winchester in 1897 and used as a factory display piece. It was displayed at both the New York Exhibition of Industry and Science in 1898 and at the Pan-American International Exposition in Buffalo in 1901 and would have been seen by millions of visitors. In 1902, it was presented by Winchester to one of the true Western folk heroes: John Crawford, better known as Captain Jack or “The Poet Scout.” Crawford had the rifle fitted with a second presentation plaque by the factory in 1903 and gave it as a Christmas present to his close friend James Barton Adams. Crawford’s life was truly full of adventure, violence, daring feats, and intrigue, and he was among the most famous frontier scouts and western performers of the late 1800s and early 1900s. He was born John Wallace Crawford in Ireland to Scottish parents in 1847. His family, like many Scots-Irish, emigrated to the U.S. in search of better opportunities. Crawford served in the 48th Pennsylvania Infantry during the Civil War and was wounded at both Spotsylvania and Petersburg. He headed to the West during the Black Hills Gold Rush and joined the Black Hills Rangers protecting the local populace from Indian attacks as their chief scout. He also worked as a journalist in the Gold Camps and then as a war correspondent during the Bighorn and Yellowstone Expeditions as a scout under Brigadier General George Crook. Crawford became friends with William “Buffalo Bill” Cody while serving under Crook and replaced him as head scout when Cody returned to the East. As a scout, he undertook many dangerous journeys to deliver dispatches and also took place in multiple battles. He rose to national fame after riding 350 miles in just six days in order to deliver news of Crook’s triumph over Chief American Horse at the Battle of Slim Buttes in September 1876 during the Great Sioux War. News of the victory was much needed after Custer’s infamous defeat earlier that June. He then joined Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show in the East until he was shot in the groin during a reenactment of a running horse battle. He later claimed Cody accidentally shot him because he was drunk. He moved his family to New Mexico in 1879 and resumed work as a scout during the Apache War and Victorio’s War and participated in raids against the Apache and into Mexican territory. Crawford also served a trader at Fort Craig and went into the ranching and mining business. His ranch on in New Mexico was established in 1886. Adams grew up in Iowa and Ohio, fought in the Civil War for the Union and was also a former scout and one of the few western poets. He lived and worked at Crawford’s ranch in New Mexico from 1890 to 1892 before moving to Colorado where he continued to write poetry, worked in publishing, and remained in close correspondence with Crawford. Crawford resumed his position as a cultural icon in the 1890s and early 20th century by speaking and performing throughout the U.S. and was known to have continued his crusade against the use of alcohol. He had previously been appointed a special investigator and had looked into the illegal trafficking of alcohol in Indian Country. Like other performers, he wore flashy outfits and acted the part, but his charming nature and poetry contrasted with the popular image of unrefined western men and with “The Poet Scout’s” own tales of battles and adventure. He reportedly regularly appeared armed with a Winchester rifle and a Colt on his hip while he spoke for hours about life in the West and his adventures. His speeches and writings are known to have more closely related the very real dangers of frontier life than many other western icons but also reflected long standing popular beliefs in American exceptionalism, rugged individualism, and the pre-ordained victory of “civilization” over “savagery.” He wrote over one hundred stories, seven books of published poetry and untold unpublished poems, and four plays (in which he played the star roles). It was his friend Adams who wrote the foreword to Crawford's book “Whar' the Hand O' God is Seen” when it was published in 1913 and who helped edit and publish much of Crawford’s other works. Some poems by both men were widely performed as songs. Crawford died in New York in 1917, and Adams was laid to rest the following year in Colorado. The rifle is accompanied by a Cody Firearms Museum letter confirming the rifle’s configuration and complex history, including the many dates of shipment and return due to exhibition use and that it was “charged to factory presentation account” in 1902 and “returned and repaired” (representing the addition of the second plaque) on December 7, 1903. A detailed description by Winchester expert R.L. Wilson discussing the rifle’s history and confirming its originality is also included. The 1902 presentation is commemorated by a silver oval plaque inlaid in the left side of the stock that reads “Presented to Capt. Jack Crawfod/by W.R.A. Co./1902”. A silver inlay shaped like a heart is engraved with “Xmas 1903/To Jim from Jack/Go sweetheart mine/Look bright and shine/for naturs bard,/And take a sip/From bitter cup/Of my old/‘PARD’”. This rifle and a .22 rimfire Model 1873 also presented to “Capt. Jack” are the only two Winchester’s known with factory inscribed poetry. The rifle features factory scroll and panel scene engraving that includes a buck on the left side plate. The engraving patterns were likely executed by John Ulrich according to R. L. Wilson. The finely figured, XX fancy grade walnut stock and forearm have style H checkering and a high polish “piano” finish that contrasts beautifully with the gold and nickel plated finish on the metal. Aside from the exhibition engraving and finish, the plaques, and the deluxe wood, the rifle has the standard Model 1873 markings and features. The Wilson letter states that this rifle "represents one of the most impressive combinations of rare and desirable engraved features, finishes and historical details known on any gun of this model - or of any model Winchester ever made." Manufacturer: Winchester Model: 1873 BBL: 24 inch octagon Stock: checkered walnut Gauge: 44-40 WCF Finish: gold/nickel Grips: Serial Number: 495093B Class: Antique Condition: Very fine with factory exhibition finish and one-of-a-kind presentation plaques. Nearly all of the nickel-plated finish remains with only several very insignificant age spots. 95% plus of the gold plated finish remains with minimal handling and storage wear including some slight finish loss on the edge of the buttplate heel and toe. The flawlessly executed scroll engraving and highly detailed game scene are crisp. The inscriptions on both of the silver plates remain sharp, and the silver displays attractive aged patina. The highly figured walnut stock and forearm are in excellent condition and have only a few minor handling and storage marks. The high polish piano finish and checkering remain virtually untouched. This is a one-of-a-kind combination of a Winchester factory display piece that was then presented to two western legends. This is an once-in-a-lifetime chance to own a irreplaceable Winchester exhibition gun and piece of Wild West history in the form of an outstandingly high condition Winchester Model 1873 lever action rifle.

Buffalo Bill Wild West Show Poster

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Framed Large Buffalo Bill's Wild West and Congress of Rough Riders of the World Poster This poster measures 19 inches wide and 24 inches tall (not including the frame). It depicts William "Buffalo Bill" Cody riding on horseback armed with a Winchester carbine and a Colt revolver and accompanied by a white eagle in an Old West scene. Buffalo Bill began using the longer title "Buffalo Bill's Wild West and Congress of Rough Riders of the World" for his show outside the Chicago World's Fair in 1893 after returning from touring Europe. He had recognized the opportunity for his show to be seen by millions over the course of the fair but was prevented from participating in the fair itself by the organizers who wanted him to give half of the ticket prices back to the fair. He defied them by simply setting up on 15 acres directly outside the fair and opened his show several weeks before the fair which angered the organizers. His profits reached $1 million and helped him establish Cody, Wyoming, and continue his show into the 20th century. Despite the ire of the fair organizers, the "Congress of Rough Riders" complimented the World's Fair in that it included representatives of horse cultures from around the world, even Mongols and Russian Cossacks. The show naturally remained most famous the dozens of other American and Indian showmen and women, including Annie Oakely, and their stories and reenactments of scenes from the American West. The Indian representatives were a particularly strong draw for audiences, and Cody ensured his former adversaries were given privileged positions. They paraded and entered the stadiums directly following Cody himself, and prior to his death in 1890, Sitting Bull was regularly seen at Cody's side and was introduced as his friend. The special effects and scale of the shows were unlike anything the world had seen. Any given show performed in cities across the U.S. and in Europe could include hundreds of horses, running battles, trick shooting, roping, story telling, wildlife (including bison, bears, and elk), and even a tornado created using a complex arrangement of high power fans. Most shows ended with Buffalo Bill and the cavalry coming to the aid of a family whose farmhouse was being besieged by Indian warriors. Matching Wild West show posters are on display as part of the Huntington Hartford Collection at the Gallery of Modern Art in New York City and The William F. Cody Archive at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming. The Center of the West dated this "The White Eagle 'Col. W. F. Cody Buffalo Bill' Guiding and Guarding" poster design to 1893 and notes that it was published by A. Hoen & Co. in Baltimore, Maryland. Manufacturer: None Model: None BBL: Stock: Gauge: Finish: Grips: Serial Number: Class: Other Condition: Very fine as professionally restored. The imagery and text remains clear. There is some crumpling, minor fading, and edge wear appropriate to its age upon close inspection. The frame is fine and has mild storage wear. This is a beautiful and rare piece that would perfectly accent your gun room or Americana collection.

A self-proclaimed "crack shot," O'Connell gained the attention of famed showman Buffalo Bill and for a short period of time toured with Buffalo Bill's Wild West.

Extremely Rare Iron Frame Henry Rifle Serial Number 119

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Extremely Rare Iron Frame Henry Rifle Serial Number 119 Rare Iron Frame Henry Lever Action Rifle that was manufactured by the New Haven Arms Co. during the first months of production, April-May 1862. This rifle has the iron frame and buttplate found on very early Henry rifles. The New Haven Arms Co. is believed to have manufactured Henry rifles with brass and iron frames concurrently during the first months of production. Known serial numbers for iron frame Henry rifles run from "2" to "355". Experts believe that the New Haven Arms Co. manufactured as many as 400 iron frame rifles. Approximately 90 iron frame rifles have been identified in contemporary collections. This rifle has a 24-inch octagon barrel with integral 15-shot magazine along with the distinctive features found on the early iron and brass frame Henry rifles. These features include: (1) alternate rear sight dovetail in the receiver, (2) iron buttplate with rounded heel and hinged trapdoor, (3) lever without a projection to engage a lever latch, (4) lack of lever latch on the lower tang, (5) small diameter brass cartridge follower, (6) straight rectangular follower cut in the bottom of the receiver, (7) small diameter trigger pin and (8) serial numbered buttplate and tang screws. The barrel has a brass front sight blade and a dovetail mounted folding leaf rear sight with 900 yard center notch. The rifle, correctly, is not fitted with a sling swivel or loop for a sling hook which were special order features on early Henry rifles. The iron receiver originally had a high polish blue finish. The barrel/magazine are blued. The hammer, trigger, lever and buttplate are color casehardened. The stock is straight grain American walnut with a varnish finish. The top barrel flat is roll-stamped with the legend: "HENRY'S PATENT OCT. 16. 1860/MANUFACT'D BY THE NEWHAVEN ARMS. CO. NEWHAVEN. CT." in two lines ahead of the rear sight. The legend is the early smaller style which utilizes block letters for "NEWHAVEN" in the address and serifed letters for the balance of the markings. The serial number "119" is hand-stamped on the top of the barrel between the rear sight and the receiver, on the inside of the buttplate heel and on the shanks of the buttplate and tang screws (the stock was not removed to examine the serial number stamped on the left side of the lower tang and in the upper tang recess of the stock). The butt trap contains the four-piece, hickory cleaning rod furnished with early to mid-production Henry rifles. Manufacturer: New Haven Arms Co. Model: Henry Rifle BBL: 24 Inch Stock: walnut Gauge: 44 Henry RF Finish: blue/case-hardened Grips: Serial Number: 119 Class: Antique Condition: Fine. The barrel has a silver-gray patina and retains 30% of the original blue finish which is mostly in the protected areas of the barrel. The metal surfaces are smooth and the edges are sharp. The New Haven Arms legend and serial number are both crisp. The barrel loading gate has a few minor dents and scratches. The iron receiver has a good-looking gray brown patina with smooth surfaces. Small amounts of the original high polish blue finish are visible on the lower receiver near the trigger. The sides of the hammer retain about 40% of the original color casehardened finish. The balance of the hammer along with the trigger and lever have a dove-gray patina with smooth metal surfaces. The iron buttplate shows typical wear with patches of dark age discoloration and some pitting on the heel. The straight grain walnut stock is also in fine condition and shows only a few very insignificant handling and storage marks. The stock appears to have much of the crazed original varnish finish. The bore is bright which is very uncommon on a Henry rifle. The Henry rifle was the most advanced long arm available during the American Civil War. Experts believe that most Henry rifles manufactured before 1865 saw military service. Although the Federal government purchased only slightly more than 1700 Henry rifles between 1862 and 1865, individual soldiers were quick to recognize the firepower offered by a 15-shot repeating rifle. Most Henry rifles were privately purchased by Federal soldiers from Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Kentucky regiments. Many of the early Iron Frame Henry rifles were shipped to New Haven Arms dealers in Louisville, Kentucky. A few Iron Frame Henry rifles were obtained by Confederate soldiers. All Henry rifles are scarce and historic firearms. However, the limited production Iron Frame rifles are the rarest and most desirable Henry rifles. This fine rifle would be the stand-out piece in the most advanced collection of Winchester rifles.

Description: Rare and Historic Royal Presentation Special Order Winchester First Model 1873 Saddle Ring Lever Action Carbine with Casehardened Receiver and Factory Letter Winchester Model 1873 carbine manufactured in 1875 and presented by Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, during his 1875 visit to India. This carbine is accompanied by a Cody Firearms Museum letter that describes it as: "Carbine, XX wood, Casehardened". The letter states that the carbine was shipped from Winchester on July 31, 1875, along with 29 others on work order number 3701. This order included Model 1873 serial numbers 6618, 6604, and 6597 which are currently displayed at the Prince of Wales former residence, Sandringham House. This carbine was part of a group of fifteen rifles and fifteen carbines shipped from Winchester to James Kerr and London Armory, Winchester's London Agent, as presentation pieces for the visit of Edward, Prince of Wales, to India in October 1875. These rifles and carbines had deluxe, XX fancy grade walnut and were inlaid with a silver plate engraved with the medal insignia of the Prince of Wales surrounded by the chain and medal of the Order of the Star of India. Six of these Winchesters (including one carbine) were apparently returned to England in 1876 following the tour and remain at Sandringham House. The surviving carbine at Sandringham, serial number 6618, is identical to this carbine. In addition to the inlaid medal on the left side of the stock, the barrel of this carbine is engraved; "FROM H.R.H. THE PRINCE OF WALES K.G. G.C.S.I. INDIA 1875+1876" in one line on the top between the upper and lower bands. "LONDON ARMOURY/Jas KERR & CO. 54 KING WILLIAM ST. LONDON" is engraved in two lines on the left side of the barrel between the lower barrel band and the receiver. London proof and inspection marks are stamped on the right side of the barrel and receiver. Rack numbers are stamped on the carbine as follows, "16" is stamped on the right side of the forearm, lower right side of the receiver and on the heel of the buttplate. "6" is stamped on the left side of the stock ahead of the inlaid medal. The top of the barrel is roll-stamped with the two-line legend: "WINCHESTER'S-REPEATING-ARMS. NEW HAVEN. CT./KING'S-IMPROVEMENT-PATENTED-MARCH 29. 1866. OCTOBER 16. 1860" ahead of the rear sight. The upper receiver tang is roll-stamped "MODEL. 1873." in "fancy letters". The serial number "6616" is engraved in script numerals on the lower tang behind the lever latch. This First Model carbine has the distinctive receiver with grooved dust cover guides and dust cover with checkered, oval "finger print". The barrel has the first style band with integral front sight blade and folding leaf sight with sight apertures marked "1, 3", and "5". A staple mounted saddle ring is located on the left side of the receiver. The carbine style buttplate has a sliding brass trapdoor and the butt trap contains a three-piece, jointed, steel cleaning rod with brass tip. The barrel, magazine, barrel bands, receiver, dust cover and loading gate are blued. The receiver, hammer, trigger, lever and buttplate are color casehardened. Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, subsequently King Edward VII,(1841-1910) was a popular prince and monarch. As Prince of Wales, he traveled extensively. His 1875-1876 visit to India was considered a great success. Edward was a notable sportsman who was extremely fond of hunting The thirty Winchester Model 1873 rifles and carbines purchased for presentation during his visit to India were almost certainly selected because they represented the most modern repeating firearms available. This presentation carbine may be the only surviving example of the rifles and carbines presented by Edward Prince of Wales other than the six guns on display in Sandringham House. This is a rare and historic Winchester Model 1873 carbine. Manufacturer: Winchester Model: 1873 BBL: 20 Inch Stock: walnut Gauge: 44 WCF Finish: blue/casehardened Grips: Serial Number: 6616 Class: Antique Condition: Very good plus. This carbine is all original and retains 25% of the original blued casehardened finish. The barrel, magazine and barrel bands have a plum-blue patina and retain significant amounts of original blue finish. Most of the wear is concentrated on the top of the barrel between the bands. Both the barrel and magazine have scattered light scratches with several spots of light pitting. The engraved presentation and Kerr markings and Winchester legend are sharp. The receiver has mostly an attractive silvered-out case hardened finish overall. Most of the case colors are present on the right side-plate. The casehardened finish on the trigger and sides of the lever have silvered but the hammer retains strong case colors. The buttplate has moderate handling wear with a dark patina. The stock and forearm are both in very good overall condition with moderate handling wear. The walnut has aged to a smooth, dark patina which shows little of the XX fancy grade burl. The silver inlay in the left of the stock remains in fine condition with sharp engraved details. This is a rare and historic royal presentation First Model 1873 saddle ring carbine.

Special Order Winchester Deluxe Model 1873 Lever Action Rifle

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Outstanding Special Order Winchester Deluxe Model 1873 Lever Action 44-40 Rifle with Casehardened Receiver and Presentation Inscribed Plaque This special order Winchester Model 1873 Sporting Rifle was manufactured in 1891 and has presentation inscription. An oval silver plate inlaid on the left side of the stock is inscribed: "-Presented to-/-Fred Dow-/by the members of the/Lake Shore Club./-Sept.11, 1893-". At this time the writer believes that the Lake Shore Club references a private men's athletic club in Chicago, Illinois, and members included prominent Chicago area citizens such as mayor Richard Daley. The building that housed the Lake Shore Club from 1927 to 1977 was converted to student housing for Northwestern University. Today student housing has been replaced by luxury apartments. When Northwestern closed the building in 2005, the building retained several gyms, handball courts, an Olympic-size swimming pool and Otto Hake's 1938 mural depicting Chicago's history. Moreover, a Frederick Dow (1840-1934) of the state of Maine has been found from the period. At the time of the presentation, Dow would have been 53. Dow was the son of Civil War Union General Neal Dow whose influence kept his son out of the war. He was an active member of the Maine Republican Party throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries and held various influential positions within the GOP including state legislature. In 1880, Dow served as a delegate at the Republican National Convention in Chicago. He went on to serve two nonconsecutive posts as the Collector of the Port of Portland under both Presidents Arthur and Harrison. How Dow is connected with the Lake Shore Club has yet to be determined. The rifle has the Third Model receiver with integral dust cover guide and dust cover with serrated rear edges. The octagon barrel, full length magazine and dust cover are blued. The loading gate has a fire blue finish. The receiver, forearm cap, hammer, lever, trigger and crescent buttplate are color casehardened. The forearm and pistol grip stock are highly figured, fancy grade walnut with "Style H" checkering and high polish piano finish. The bottom of the pistol grip has an ebony inlay. The barrel has a Lyman "Jack" front sight with white bead and a buckhorn sporting style rear sight with serrated edges and screw adjustable center insert. A Lyman folding combination rear sight with coarsely knurled post is mounted on the upper receiver tang. The buttplate has a sliding brass trapdoor and the butt trap contains a four-piece steel cleaning rod with brass tip. The top barrel flat is roll stamped "WINCHESTER'S REPEATING ARMS. NEW HAVEN. CONN. U.S.A./-KING'S IMPROVEMENT PATENTED MARCH 29. 1866 OCTOBER 16. 1860.-" in two lines ahead of the rear sight. The caliber designation "44 W.C.F." is roll-stamped on the top barrel flat just in front of the receiver. "44 CAL" is stamped in script across the bottom of the cartridge elevator. The serial number "429892" is stamped in small letters across the lower tang between the lever latch and the tang screw. Manufacturer: Winchester Model: 1873 BBL: 24 inch octagon Stock: checkered highly figured walnut pistol grip Gauge: 44 WCF Finish: blue/casehardened Grips: Serial Number: 429892 Class: Antique Condition: Excellent. The rifle is all original and retains 97% of the original blue and vivid color casehardened finish. Nearly all of the blue finish is present on the barrel. The markings are crisp. The blue finish on the magazine tube has thinned slightly to a blue-gray patina. About 85% of the bright blue finish is present on the dust cover. Nearly all of the nitre blue finish remains on the loading gate. The receiver and side plates have vivid case colors and show minimal wear. The case colors on the forearm cap, hammer, trigger, lever and crescent buttplate are more subdued but show very little wear. The highly figured walnut stock and forearm are both in excellent condition and retain nearly all of the high polish piano finish. Wear is limited to a few very insignificant storage marks. The fine checkering on the pistol grip and forearm is extremely sharp. This is an outstanding example of a deluxe, presentation Winchester Deluxe Model 1873 Rifle with very desirable casehardened receiver. Provenance: Robert M. Lee Collection.

Rare Civil War Production New Haven Arms Co. Henry Lever Action

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Rare Civil War Production New Haven Arms Co. Henry Lever Action Rifle Henry Lever Action Rifle manufactured by the New Haven Arms Co. in March 1864. The rifle has the distinctive Henry "gun metal" brass receiver and buttplate and octagon barrel with integral 15-shot magazine. The barrel has the late style, square back, nickel-silver front sight blade and a dovetail mounted, folding leaf rear sight. The sight leaf has a rounded top with 900 yard center notch. The second style receiver lacks the alternate rear sight dovetail found on Henry receivers to about serial number 3000. The bottom of the receiver has the late, beveled magazine follower cut, and the magazine has the large diameter brass follower. The buttplate is the first style with rounded heel which was replaced with a buttplate with sharp pointed heel in the mid-4000 serial number range. The buttplate has a hinged brass trapdoor. The left side of the stock and barrel have a factory sling swivel and screw mounted loop for a sling hook. The swivel and hook were originally special order features but were standard by early 1864. The barrel and magazine have traces of the blue finish, the hammer and lever are color casehardened, and the straight grain American walnut stock has a varnished or oiled finish. The top of the barrel is roll stamped with the second style legend: "HENRY'S PATENT. OCT. 16, 1860/MANUFACT'D BY THE NEW HAVEN ARMS CO. NEW HAVEN, CT." in two lines. The second style legend, introduced in the late 3000 serial number range, is larger and has all Roman (serifed) characters rather than the smaller, first style legend with the combination of Roman and Gothic letters. The serial number "4585" is stamped: (1) on the top barrel flat between the rear sight and the receiver, (2) on the lower left side of the receiver tang, (3) in the upper tang inlet of the stock, (4) on the inside of the buttplate and (5) on the shanks of both hand-fitted buttplate screws. All of the visible serial numbers match. The tang screws are, correctly, not serial numbered. Experts believe that most Henry rifles made before 1865 were privately purchased by individual federal soldiers who wanted the unprecedented firepower offered by the 15-shot Henry repeating rifle. The Henry rifle was especially popular with soldiers in Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky regiments. Many of these soldiers purchased Henry rifles from dealers in Louisville, Kentucky, and other mid-west cities in 1864 using re-enlistment bounties. Manufacturer: New Haven Arms Co. Model: Henry Rifle BBL: 24 Inch Stock: varnished walnut Gauge: 44 Henry Finish: blue Grips: Serial Number: 4585 Class: Antique Condition: Very good. The barrel has a deep brown patina with sharp edges and clear markings. The rear sight is original but is missing the elevator bar. The receiver and buttplate are in good overall condition with an attractive patina. The receiver and buttplate have typical scratches and handling marks. Most of the wear is concentrated on the bottom of the receiver and lower tang. The side plate joints are tight with a few minor dents along the top of the left side plate. The hammer, trigger, and lever have a dark brown patina with slight surface texture and pitting. The stock is in good overall condition with scattered minor handling marks. The bolt has been gunsmith modified to centerfire configuration. This is a very good example of a Civil War production Henry rifle that may have seen Civil War service.

Factory sling swivels are fitted to the stock and forearm cap. The receiver has an indented loading port cover retained by a single screw.

The front sight is an early hooded, dovetail mounted, Ballard style sight with pinch top steel blade. A Ballard style folding rear sight is mounted in a dovetail on the upper tang. The hammer is the early style without a half-cock notch and coarse knurling on the spur. The Henry style buttplate has a hinged trapdoor. The top of the barrel is roll-stamped with the early legend: "HENRY'S PATENT-OCT.16.1860/KING'S PATENT-MARCH 29.1866." in two lines ahead of the rear sight. The serial number "16007" is stamped on the left side of the lower receiver tang, in the upper stock inlet and on the inside of the buttplate. All three serial numbers match. "THO J. CALDWEL" is hand stamped in three locations: (1) on the bottom of the stock between the sling swivel and the lower receiver tang, (2) on the left side of the stock near the buttplate and (3) on the right edge of the buttplate.

L.D. Nimschke Engraved Winchester 'Flatside' 1866 Carbine

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Well Documented Rare, L.D. Nimschke Engraved Winchester 'Flatside' Model 1866 Saddle Ring Carbine Rare, engraved, Winchester First Model 1866 'Flatside' Saddle Ring Carbine that was manufactured in 1866. The carbine has the distinctive First Model features which include: (1) flat loading port cover secured by two screws, (2) two upper tang screws, (3) 'Flatside' receiver with no flare at the junction with the forearm and (4) Henry style receiver profile with distinct 'drop' ahead of the hammer. A brass sling ring secured by a iron staple is located on the left side of the receiver. The uncrowned barrel has the early style threaded magazine cap with no screw, front barrel band with integral front sight blade and two-leaf carbine rear sight. The stock and forearm are straight grain American walnut. The stock has the Henry style crescent brass buttplate with hinged brass trap utilized on early Model 1866 carbines. The top of the barrel is roll-stamped: "HENRY'S-PATENT. OCT. 16. 1860/KING'S-PATENT-MARCH 29. 1866" in two lines between the lower barrel band and the rear sight. The serial number, "13187" is stamped on the left side of the lower receiver tang. The upper tang inlet on the stock and the inside of the buttplate are serial numbered "13404". The brass (gunmetal) receiver is silver plated and the buttplate is gold plated. The barrel, magazine, barrel bands, hammer, lever and trigger were blued or color case-hardened. The top and sides of the receiver upper tang and cartridge elevator are extensively engraved with deluxe scrollwork and intricate borders. The left side of the receiver features a large Mexican Eagle and Serpent motif surrounded by tight scrollwork on a punch-dot background while the right side of the receiver is covered with tight scrollwork. A crown has been added to the eagle's head and "F. Maximiliano/Emperador de Mejico" is period inscribed in two lines along the upper sides of the receiver. The crown and inscription were engraved by a different and less skilled hand than the scrollwork and eagle motif. This carbine is accompanied by 17-page letter by firearms expert R.L. Wilson. The Wilson letter states that this carbine was engraved by L.D. Nimschke either for Winchester or Schuyler, Hartley & Graham and is "The First Engraved Winchester". He further states that this carbine could have been a sample directed by Oliver Winchester to the Emperor Maximilian of Mexico (1832-1867). The Wilson letter does not address the distinct difference in the quality of the engraving in the inscription and the addition of the crown to the eagle head. Wilson's letter states that this carbine was pictured on page 43 of his book THE BOOK OF WINCHESTER ENGRAVING (1976) but was not included in the 1989 edition of WINCHESTER ENGRAVING because no photograph was available. The Wilson letter notes the mis-matched serial numbers on the stock and buttplate and states that mis-matched serial numbers are not unusual due to the pressure for the factory to produce the first Winchester rifles and carbines. Also included with this carbine are several articles on the life and short reign of Emperor Maximilian. Manufacturer: Winchester Model: 1866 BBL: 20 Inch Stock: walnut Gauge: 44 Henry RF Finish: blue/silver-plated Grips: Serial Number: 13187 Class: Antique Condition: Good. The carbine has traces of the original silver-plated finish on the receiver. The L.D. Nimschke scroll and border engraving and Mexican eagle motif on the receiver are crisp. The inscription and crown are later, possibly period, additions that were not executed by the original engraver. There are distinct gaps around the edges of the side plates and the receiver has numerous light dents and scratches. The sling ring is a replacement. The crescent buttplate has traces of gold-plated finish in protected areas. The barrel, magazine and barrel bands have a mottled, silver gray, patina with spots of age discoloration. The surfaces of the barrel and magazine are generally smooth. The barrel address is light but completely legible. The case colors on the hammer, trigger and lever have faded to a mottled gray patina. The stock and forearm are in good overall condition with scattered light scratches and handling marks. This is a genuine example of a rare, early production, First Model Winchester 1866 "Flatside Carbine" with deluxe New York engraving by L.D. Nimschke or his shop. This extensively documented carbine may well be the "First Engraved Winchester" and is certainly is among the very first engraved Winchester Model 1866 carbines or rifles.

The Winchester Model 1895 Express rifle was suitable for hunting dangerous game in North America, Africa or Asia. The tiger, leopard and grizzly inlaid in solid gold on the receiver of this rifle reflect its suitability as a big game rifle. This rifle is illustrated on page 234 of "WINCHESTER ENGRAVING" by R.L.
