Japanese type 14 Nambu small triggerguard pistol by Nagoya Arsenal with period  accessories

Lot 266: Japanese type 14 Nambu small triggerguard pistol by Nagoya Arsenal with period accessories

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: serial #64979, 8mm Nambu, 4 1/2" barrel with a bright about excellent bore which shows only a couple spots of some very light oxidation. The metal surfaces retain about 92-95% original blue, the loss is due primarily to light fading, especially prevalent on the straps and high edges with the grip straps showing some very light oxidation. The trigger, magazine release and safety selector still show excellent pale straw colors and the bright polished bolt is unstained. The grooved Asian hardwood grips rate very good plus with only minor dings and handling marks from the years. This is a July 1939-manufactured pistol with all matching numbers and an un-numbered firing pin, the nickel-bodied magazine also correctly numbered "979". The pistol comes housed in a custom French-fitted case with a number of very nice Second World War accessories. Included with the gun is an original leather flap holster with cleaning rod, blued body spare magazine (numbered 386), correct woven cord lanyard and a spare un-numbered firing pin. An unmarked paper-wrapped, twine encircled package of original cartridges is included along with a period pair of chopsticks with kanji characters; the unmarked ammunition packets being very rare compared with marked packets. Also included are what appear to be two Japanese armbands of the period and an interesting packet of rice. The packet of rice oddly, was found in a saddlebag purchased by the consignor from the Chuck Connors estate sale. An old note attached to it states merely "Rice excavated from crash sight of Adm. Yamamoto's Betty bomber shot down in 1943 by Rex Barber"; there is no other provenance available. Also included is a package of Japanese cigarettes in cellophane wrapping with a cardboard slip-sleeve, a small picture of a comely Japanese lass, a period photograph of some Japanese soldiers bathing in a stream and likely doing laundry against a jungle backdrop, an interesting Japanese- English reader with numerous stories and lessons, it appears to be from the 1939 period, there is a textile bag with kanji characters, a small cut-out label, doubtless from a piece of clothing, a small booklet all in Japanese and a U.S. Government Printing Office postcard of a "Captured Two Man Japanese Suicide Submarine". Overall an interesting, and very neat collection of accessories which accompany this fine-condition Nambu pistol. (35528-72) {C&R}

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: serial #C177076, 45 ACP, 5" barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces retain about 95% original blue, the loss is due primarily to some light high edge wear and a slight graying on the front and back strap.

Lot 269: U.S. model 1902 Military pistol by Colt

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: serial #15067, 38 ACP, 6" barrel with an about very good bore which shows some crisp evident rifling but with minor pitting its full length. The metal surfaces are an overall tarnished gunmetal gray with evidence of a light cleaning but with the markings remaining legible, the finish blending with a light brown patina. The slide features front checkering and the left side of the frame is appropriately ÒU.S." marked. The checkered hard rubber Rampant Colt grips rate very good plus with only light wear. The slide is numbered Ò15167" which is no doubt a factory error in the marking. There is a single ÒCal. 38/Colt" marked magazine included as well as a woven cord lanyard, the front sight has been slightly modified and turned into a semi-Patridge style. The included factory letter shows shipment to the Commanding Officer, Springfield Armory in July of 1902 as part of a 100 gun shipment. The left-side ÒJTT" and ÒRAC" markings are later-refreshed; clearly the gun is a military model that was U.S. shipped due to the factory letter however. Also included is a letter from J.Bland & Son of New Mexico stating the gun came from the Estate of General Lester J. Whitlock, aide to MacArthur, he was on the Missouri during the surrender and was Deputy Chief of Staff in Tokyo after the war. Overall a very affordable example of these sought-after early military semi-autos. (35506-82) {C&R}

The gun seems to time and lockup well and the included factory letter shows shipment to M. Kennedy & Brothers of St. Paul Minnesota in March of 1885. These are exceedingly rare ejectorless Sheriff's model revolver's which, according to Wilkerson, only 47 of which were produced. Overall a very good fast-draw or hide-out Sheriff's model 1878.

Included is a Zoli lockable hard case containing extra choke tubes with wrench, Allen wrenches for the trigger and comb, shims for the comb, and extra sights. This is a very attractive and well made target crunching machine which could certainly double as a field gun. (115505-15)

U.S. model 1841 percussion rifle by Robbins & Lawrence

Lot 285: U.S. model 1841 percussion rifle by Robbins & Lawrence

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: .54 cal. percussion, 33" barrel with a very good bore which shows some minor scattered pitting. The barrel is a lightly streaked light brown and original fading deep gray blue patina with pewter undertones retaining its scant brass blade front sight and flat-top rear sight which shows some nice pale fire temper blue. The barrel tang is dated 1849 and there is a light "C" inspectors mark on the left barrel flat. The lockplate and hammer exhibit vivid original color case-hardening in about 98% coverage and are properly maker marked and dated 1849. The brass triggerguard, buttplate and patchbox have tarnished to a dull ocher patina with what appears to be an older coating of varnish while the rear band shows evidence of a one-time polishing, now starting to reacquire a patina, the front band shows a partial polishing, also now starting to tarnish nicely. The walnut stock rates excellent with nearly all of its original varnish and crisp edges showing only minor handling marks and dings from the years, there are two crisp left-side cartouches; there is a very small flake missing from the right edge of the forearm and a small crack emanating rearward from it. The lock is crisp and mechanically functional, and original brass-tipped ramrod is included and the original nipple is in place beneath the patchbox. Overall an excellent, very crisp example of these quality-made percussion rifles. (35540-2) {ANTIQUE}

Lot 286: Tryon Republic of Texas model 1816 musket

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: About .75 cal. flint, 42" barrel with an about very good bore. The barrel is primarily a dark gray and brown patina with pewter undertones and overall light pitting, it is appropriately "U.S." and "P/GF" marked on its left rear radius. The lockplate is primarily a brown patina with light pinprick pitting while the area beneath the frizzen and its spring is mostly smooth; the hammer is a deep brown lightly oxidized patina. The rear of the lockplate is marked "Tryon Philada" while the center of the lockplate shows "Texas" beneath a large star with a smaller star at its center. The front and rear barrel bands show minor and some moderate pitting, the center band is a later, incorrect replacement which is slightly undersized. The stock rates very good overall showing an old light cleaning, also with the overall minor dings and handling marks one would expect from the years of use. There is a repair to crack at the right rear of the tang and just above and below the lockplate, they seem stable. There is a Confederate States of America 1861-dated one cent piece inlaid in the wrist at the rear of the tang with two small brads, it appears to be a reproduction one cent piece; there is a nice inlaid Silver Star with five points on the belly of the stock ahead of triggerguard front extension. Each point of the star spells out "T-E-X-A-S" with a circled "CS" at the center of the star. Likely an original Tryon Republic of Texas musket, it was clearly converted to percussion at some point, very possibly for the Civil War; it has now been fairly neatly converted back to flint. The lock seems to function well mechanically and a trumpet shaped ramrod is included. An interesting Republic of Texas musket with some intriguing later appliquŽs. (35528-128) {ANTIQUE}

extremely rare Henry Ball patent percussion anti-garrotter

Lot 287: extremely rare Henry Ball patent percussion anti-garrotter

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: .36 cal. percussion, 1 1/4" barrel with a very good bore. This is an extremely interesting and extremely rare piece of firearms curiosa, patented February 8, 1858 by Henry Ball of Birmingham. In crime-ridden Victorian London garrotting was merely one of the neat ways one could be robbed or murdered. Stiff leather and even metal-reinforced collar devices were invented to preclude the garrotter from making you his next victim; Mr. Ball's device was one of those ingenious inventions. Basically a percussion pistol mounted to a flat piece of metal, worn in the small of the back and carried with the hammer on a half-cock notch. When entering a dangerous situation or when one felt threatened, the wearer would reach behind his back with his left hand and fully cock the hammer. If indeed attacked by a garrotter there was a pull cord with a turned knob fastened at the waistline which would trigger the device, sending a .36 caliber lead ball into the offending garrotter's midsection thereby dissuading him from pursuing any further strangulation or decapitating action. Extremely rarely encountered, this example is chiefly a smooth flaked brown and light pewter patina with generous traces of bright original blue, perhaps 25% of which remains. The base plate and barrel both exhibit Birmingham proofs and the plate itself is marked "H. Ball's Patent" in oval. The hammer is serial numbered "4" and miraculously the arm comes in its original oval japanned tin case which accommodates the mechanism and its accessories. The included accessories are the original waist belt of leather with appropriate attaching holes, japanned iron buckle and sewn tubular leather pull cord channel through which the leather thong was threaded, leaving the actuating handle conveniently placed at the belt line (the turned wooden knob appears to be of oak and shows much original varnish); an original iron bullet mould is included as well as the wrench/rammer which fits the screw-off barrel; an antique japanned tin of caps is also included as well as a nice diminutive powder flask with screw-off common top and fixed spout showing a single leaf on each side of the body and showing moderate tarnish but with tight seams. The leather itself is slightly dry and somewhat flaky from the years but still fully flexible with all its seams and stitching intact. A photocopy of the original instructions for loading and using the anti-garrotter is included in the lid of the case, the original manufacturers label having deteriorated many years ago. Norm Flayderman's catalog number 117 in 1994 offered a similar device and called it "the rarest of the firearms curiosa" and mentioned it was the only known specimen of a cased, labeled percussion belt pistol. Ball was active from 1849-1868, a check of British patents shows this device was issued patent number 235 on February 8, 1858. Really an ingenious device whose introduction doubtless stopped the wanton garrottings in Victorian London. A very rare opportunity for the advanced collector of firearms curiosa to acquire this fine specimen. (35528-24) {ANTIQUE}

very fine U.S. model 1911A1 pistol by Colt

Lot 288: very fine U.S. model 1911A1 pistol by Colt

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: serial #717286, 45 ACP, 5" barrel with a bright fine bore which shows only the very tiniest amount of frosting within the grooves. This is a lovely and very intriguing pistol. The serial number is five numbers outside the 1939-production Navy contract guns. The metal surfaces retain about 92% original blue, the loss due primarily to fading and high edge wear with the frontstrap and arched mainspring housing fading to brown. The brown plastic Coltrock grips rate very good plus to near excellent with only some minor abrasions along their uncheckered bottom edges, the right grip showing a few flattened points in this area. The barrel is completely unmarked save for a "P" firing proof on the underside of the barrel ahead of the lugs and the slide is appropriately numbered to the frame. The right side of the slide is completely unmarked while the left side shows the appropriate roll marking. The frame has appropriate firing proofs and "CSR" inspectors marking just below the slide stop cut and to the right of the disconnector hole. While the included factory letter, as expected, shows shipment to the US government commanding officer at Springfield Armory, April 18, 1940 in a shipment of 300 pistols, this gun was purchased by the consignor from a Second World War Navy veteran who carried it throughout that conflict. Interesting that a Navy man would end up with a pistol five serial numbers off the actual naval contract of 1939. In any event, a fine 1911A1 pistol overall. A single unmarked magazine is included.

Description: serial #1972, .22 LR, 10" barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces retain about 97-98% original blue, the loss is due primarily to some light muzzle wear and light high edge wear with some very minor fading on the straps. The bright polished sides of the hammer show only some very light staining and the checkered walnut Rampant Colt grips rate about excellent, they are stamp-numbered to the gun. The top edge of the front sight has been dressed slightly, it is unobtrusive; the barrel locks up tight and the mechanism functions well. The gun comes in a nice custom presentation case with a gray French-fitted interior which holds a Kirkwood Brothers oak cartridge block and has an inlaid Indian head penny on the lid. A very nice pistol in a nicely made casing. (35528-74) {C&R}

The 32 Smith & Wesson barrel features its original factory open sights and has been professionally drilled and tapped for scope mounting bases, the holes currently support filler screws. The 22 long rifle barrel has had its rear sight removed and has been professionally drilled and tapped for a scope mount base which currently supports a Tasco Propoint electronic red dot sight on 30 mm rings. The sight appears to rate excellent and appears to function well. The gun comes in its original hard plastic Walther attachŽ case with end label numbered to the gun. With the case are (2) factory Walther GSP 22 Long rifle magazines and (3) factory Walther 32 S&W magazines as well as an additional complete working Walther trigger assembly with a factory tag marked "1360". It is likely the gun came equipped with the 1000g. trigger and this is a spare 1360g. trigger for use with the 32 Smith & Wesson barrel. Also included is an Interarms warranty certificate, Walther "sport-pistolen" brochure which shows the gun, attachŽ case, and many accessories, and a photocopy of what appears to be pages from the owner's manual showing the trigger, internal parts and adjustments. Overall a very nice, very complete GSP which seems to have seen only very little careful use. (35591-2)

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: serial #3911/N / 2857, This is a World War II German ships clock in the style made by Kienger & Obergfell. The clock features an eight-day movement, the second hand moves perfectly, the hour and minute hands do not function. Outside diameter of the bezel cover is roughly 6 5/8" while the diameter of the base is 7 15/16"; depth is about 3 11/16". The movement features hour, minute and second hands and the silver-toned face rates excellent showing nearly all the original black enamel in the engraved face, a couple small flakes of which have disappeared with the years. The face also features "(eagle with swastika)/M" on the left side of the face while the right side is serial numbered "3911/N", the N for Nordsee Group. There is some minor chipping or scratching around the winding hole but it is very minor in nature. The rear face of the case is a serial numbered "2857" while the bezel cover, hinge and the lockplate are also numbered "57"; what appears to be an original brass winding key numbered "12" is included. Opening the bezel reveals traces of the original black enamel beneath while the case proper appears to have been polished numerous times over the years. The case shows a handful of very minor dings and handling marks on the outer circumference. The blue steel hands show a couple spots of some light surface oxidation and the interior of the bezel shows some white oxidation around its periphery as well. The rear face of the casing shows old writing which appears to be in pencil "Taken from the German Battleship Graf Spee in Montevideo Harbor"; the writing is old but there is no way to confirm or deny the statement. It is common knowledge that pieces of the ship were scavenged as she lay in Montevideo Harbor, in 1940 a -then still neutral- crew of American seamen were permitted to board the ship. Certainly any records in Germany relating to the serial numbers of these clocks and to which ships they were issued are long gone. The bezel itself is very clear showing a couple of very minor surface scratches. There is included with the clock an oak beveled-edge mounting board, with which the clock could be mounted to a wall. Overall a very nice German ships clock in a nice state of condition that would be an important focal point of a Second World War or Maritime collection. (35525-76)

Description: serial #51217, 44-40 WCF, 7 1/2" smoothbore barrel with a bright about excellent bore which shows only a few areas of some very light oxidation or pinprick pitting. The barrel retains about 60% original nickel, the balance faded to a deep gray and brown patina, the left side of the barrel showing only remnants of its etched panel; the ejector rod housing shows traces of nickel in the protected areas but is primarily a brown and pewter. The cylinder is chiefly a pewter gun metal gray and brown patina with numerous minor dings and handling marks and generous traces of original nickel in the flutes. The frame is primarily a pewter and brown patina, also with some minor handling marks and dings but retaining perhaps 25% original nickel; there are some minor impact marks on the left and right side of the frame. The backstrap and triggerguard have toned primarily to a warm brown patina with soft pewter on the high edges and contact points, also with remnants of nickel plate. The hammer and trigger are primarily a dark pewter patina. Slugged from the muzzle, the bore diameter is .443", this area about 3/4" long at which point the bore diameter opens slightly more, actually providing a small degree of "choke" in the last 3/4" of barrel. Since this bore diameter is larger than the .427" of the normal 44-40 cartridge, it is obvious this smoothbore is non-factory; nonetheless it is extremely well done. Barrel, frame, triggerguard, backstrap and cylinder are all numbered alike, all in the same font. The smooth walnut one-piece grip rates very good and fits the frame extremely well, appearing uncleaned with generous traces of original varnish at its junction with the frame where the wood is still proud of the metal. In addition to the minor dings and dents and raised grain from exposure to the elements, the right side of the grip is incise-carved "MC" as well as "JHG". The left side grip is incise-carved "JJW" and "Bob Ford". The butt areas of the grip show some good original varnish with light incise-carving "WV" and "JB". While it is highly unlikely the Bob Ford that shot Jesse James ever touched this revolver it is still a very neat example of a well-used but still well-cared-for smoothbore antique Single Action Army revolver which very well could have been used in the hands of an exhibition or trick shooter in one of the many Wild West Shows. Further research may indeed prove fruitful and perhaps lucrative for the diligent researcher. Manufactured 1879. (35396-6) {ANTIQUE}

Description: serial #83752, 44-40, 7 1/2" barrel with a bright about excellent bore which shows only a couple very small spots of light pitting. The metal surfaces retain about 97% excellent quality later nickel finish, the quality is superb and it is difficult to tell at first glance that it is not factory-done. Remnants of the "Frontier Six Shooter" etched panel can be seen on the left side of the barrel, there is a very light area of oxidation which was lightly steel-wool cleaned in this area and there are sparsely scattered light brown oxidation specks very sparsely scattered over the balance of the gun. The smooth walnut grip rates excellent, perhaps as refinished a long time ago, but with minor dings and dents and light wear on the high edges of the butt. The wood is still proud of the metal and the grip is numbered on its interior "3752" in ink pen; the frame, triggerguard and backstrap are all numbered alike, no number can be ascertained on the cylinder. The gun times well and seems to lock up tight with a robust hammer spring. The left side root of the triggerguard is marked "44 CF" and the underside of the barrel ahead of the cylinder pin is also marked "44". The included factory letter shows shipment in November of 1882 to William Read & Sons in Boston Mass in a 5 gun shipment. Included with the gun is a nice smooth leather double loop Mexican jockstrap Heiser holster with a running double loop stitch. The holster is brown and smooth leather and rates overall very good with very light scuffing with the leather being mostly supple and still flexible with only drying on the flex point of the retention strap and atop the belt loop. A super antique Frontier Six Shooter for cowboy action. (35602-1) {ANTIQUE}

Lot 300: Colt Service Model Ace semi-auto Pistol

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: serial #SM803, 22 LR, 5" barrel with a bright excellent bore. This pistol is very crisp retaining 99% of what appears to be original factory blue overall. The fully checkered walnut grips rate excellent plus. The two tone magazine is crisp and original adjustable sights are present. Extremely close inspection of this arm reveals what we believe to be either factory-quality or at least museum-grade later refinish. This pistol is accompanied by a factory letter showing shipment on November 8, 1938 to L.J. Eppinger, Inc. in Detroit. A superb Service Model Ace has passed for original at least twice that we are aware of; really a superb looker and likely a superb shooter. (35604-2) {C&R}
