Historic Elaborate Embellished Gold and Silver Inlaid and Relief Engraved Cased Colt Model 1851 Navy Percussion Revolver with Scrimshawed Grips Inscribed to Major Frederick Hardy 84th Regiment

by Rock Island Auction Company

September 12, 2015, 9:00 AM CST

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: $40,000 - $70,000

Description: Historic Elaborate Embellished Gold and Silver Inlaid and Relief Engraved Cased Colt Model 1851 Navy Percussion Revolver with Scrimshawed Grips Inscribed to Major Frederick Hardy 84th Regiment Frederick Hardy was an officer in the 84th Regiment of Foot (York and Lancaster Regiment). His career appears to have spanned from 1849 to 1889 based on the dates in the UK National Archive. He began his career as a ensign on November 23, 1849, and advanced to lieutenant on June 6, 1851, captain on November 27, 1857, major on November 21, 1862, and lieutenant colonel on May 5, 1869. The unit's nickname was The Union Rose. The unit was heavily involved in quelling the Indian Mutiny (Sepoy Rebellion) beginning in 1857. In THE NEW ARMY LIST, MILITIA LIST, AND INDIAN CIVIL SERVICE LIST, Col. H. G. Hart wrote, "Lt. Colonel Hardy served as Orderly Officer to Brigadier Russell at the second relief of Lucknow at the Alumbagh and at the siege and capture of Lucknow also present with the 84th Regiment at the relief of Azimghur and pursuit of Koer Sing (mentioned in despatches, Medal with two Clasps)." Only one man of the sixty men detachment of the 84th at Cawnpore survived. The main force, including Hardy, was committed to the defense and recapture of Lucknow. When the 84th finally left Calcutta in 1859 after seventeen years in India, they were saluted from the battery of Fort William. At most one other unit is recorded as having received this honor. After returning to England, they were given calmer stations for twenty-three years in Ireland, Canada, and the Channel Islands. The revolver was manufactured in 1853 and has since been elaborately engraved and inlaid with various floral designs, a Indian man on the left side of the barrel lug with a knife and pistol, and a series of silver studs on the loading lever. Most of the standard Colt markings remain unobscured. It is marked with "-ADDRESS SAML COLT NEW YORK CITY- " on the top of the barrel, the naval battle scene on the cylinder, "COLTS/PATENT" on the left side of the frame, and matching serial numbers on the loading lever, wedge, barrel, frame, trigger guard, cylinder, cylinder pin, and back strap. The latter is inscribed "Major Fredk Hardy/84TH Regt" and a "P" is marked on the left side of the back strap obscured by the grips. The "one piece" style grips have scrimshawed scroll designs on the sides. The revolver comes with a case with hunter green lining, an empty Eley Bros. cap tin, several lead balls, an American Flask & Cap Company eagle and martial themed powder flask (matches figure 798 in THE POWDER FLASK BOOK) , and a dual cavity bullet mold. Manufacturer: Colt Model: 1851 BBL: 7 1/2 inch octagon Stock: Gauge: 36 percussion Finish: blue/silver/gold Grips: antique ivory Serial Number: 25088 Class: Antique Condition: Very fine as period custom embellished. The revolver retains 98% plus of the gold, silver, and blue finish. The only noticeable wear is some brighter sections on the on the loading rammer and a couple absent studs on the lever. Otherwise, there is only minor handling and storage marks and some very slight spotting. The silver and brass have an aged patina. The grips are very fine with nicely aged tones, a small age crack on the upper left, and distinct designs. The action remains excellent. The case is very good with minor overall storage wear along with some small stains, fading, and minor tears on the interior. The accessories are fine. This is a beautiful revolver elaborately ornamented and tied to an important era in both the history of the British Empire and India.

September 8, 2015, 10:00 AM BST

London, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £300 - £350

Description: The mounted group of eleven miniature dress medals worn by Brigadier Lord Porritt, K.C.M.G., K.C.V.O., C.B.E., K. St. J., athlete, soldier, surgeon and Governor-General of New ZealandOrder of St. Michael and St. George, silver-gilt and enamel; Royal Victorian Order, silver-gilt and enamel; Order of the British Empire, silver-gilt and enamel; Order of St. John, silvered-metal and enamel; 1939-45 Star; Africa Star; France and Germany Star; War Medal 1939-45, M.I.D. oak leaf; Coronation 1937; Coronation 1953; United States of America, Legion of Merit, silver, gilt and enamel, mounted as worn, together with a Patron’s neck badge, silver-gilt and enamel, the reverse engraved, ‘Sir Arthur Espie Porritt, Bt., K.C.M.G., K.C.V.O., C.B.E., 1967’, in its John Pinches case of issue, and a set of tunic ribands, enamel slightly chipped on the miniatures, otherwise generally very fine and better (12) £300-350---Arthur Espie Porritt was born at Wanganui on 10 August 1900, the son of Ernest Edward Porritt, a medical practitioner, and his wife, Ivy Elizabeth McKenzie. His mother died in 1914 during his first year at Wanganui Collegiate School and, as his father left soon after to serve in the First World War, he boarded over the following four years, becoming a prefect, athletics champion, and a member of the First XV. ln 1919 he taught Latin and other subjects and was the sole games master at Croydon School, Days Bay. The following year he began studying towards a medical degree at the University of Otago.In 1923 Porritt was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship, and he studied medicine from 1924 to 1926 at Magdalen College, University of Oxford. He later claimed that the course took him no further than he had reached in Dunedin and gave him ‘time to be a bit athletic ... and play some rugby’. In 1924 he represented New Zealand at the Olympic Games in Paris, winning a bronze medal in the 100 metres. He also won two heats in the 200 metres, but came fifth in the semi-final. The 100-metre race was later immortalised in the film Chariots of Fire, but due to Porritt's modesty-and to the bewilderment of many New Zealanders - the bronze medallist was portrayed by a fictional ‘Tom Watson’. After the games Porritt beat the Olympic gold winner, Harold Abrahams, over 100 yards, and in 1925 set an Oxford-Cambridge record for that distance. It stood until 1962.Porritt was captain of the New Zealand team at the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam, but withdrew from the 100 metres because of injury. Although he did not run again for New Zealand, he had a profound influence on the country's role at Olympic and Commonwealth games. In 1934 he managed the New Zealand team at the British Empire Games in London, and in 1936 he filled the same position at the Olympic Games in Berlin. There, at Jack Lovelock’s request, he made the decision that saw Lovelock compete in the 1,500 rather than the 5,000 metres.Porritt was the New Zealand member of the International Olympic Committee from 1934 to 1967; he was on its executive board for 10 years and was the first president of its medical commission. He was also chairman of the British Empire Games Federation (later the Commonwealth Games Federation) for 20 years. When New Zealand teams arrived in London he was always there to greet them, arranging accommodation, medical treatment and facilities for training. He continued attending Olympic and Commonwealth games into his 80s, taking a particular interest in the New Zealanders.On leaving Oxford, Porritt married Mary Frances Wynne Bond in London on 15 July 1926. ln the same year he became a house surgeon at St. Mary's Hospital, London. His qualifications included MB, MCh and FRCS. He practised in Harley Street and later in Upper Wimpole Street as a consulting surgeon, with a special interest in breast and abdominal surgery, and was associated with St. Mary's and other teaching hospitals until the mid 1960s. Over the years he became known as an ‘ever kind and considerate doctor much loved by his patients; a tireless worker; an expert teacher ... an ideal member of staff for an undergraduate hospital’. As well as writing papers on surgery, he was co-editor of The Essentials of Modern Surgery and co-author of Athletics.During the Second World War Porritt was a Brigadier in the Royal Army Medical Corps, serving in France until after the evacuation from Dunkirk, then in Egypt, and later landing in Normandy on D-Day. He was twice mentioned in despatches, made an O.B.E. in 1943 and a C.B.E. in 1945, and was appointed an Officer in the U.S. Legion of Merit. By 1946 he and his wife had divorced, and on 20 December that year in London he married Kathleen Mary Peck; they were to have two sons and a daughter.Porritt was Surgeon to King George VI from 1946 and Senior Surgeon to Queen Elizabeth II from 1952 to 1967. He was appointed a K.C.M.G. in 1950 and a K.C.V.O. in 1957. He became president in 1960 of both the British Medical Association and the Royal College of Surgeons of England, the first person to hold the two positions simultaneously, and retained the presidency of the R.C.S. until 1963. He chaired the African Medical and Research Foundation for nine years. He was awarded numerous honorary fellowships and degrees, including LLDs from the universities of New Zealand and Otago. In 1963 he was made a Baronet.In 1967 Porritt returned to New Zealand as the country's 11th Governor-General, and the first born in New Zealand. His term marked a turning-point in the country's constitutional history: his successors have all been New Zealand citizens and residents. New Zealand society had changed greatly since Porritt's departure, and his appointment reflected a growing desire among New Zealanders to run their own affairs and adopt a more independent international position. His quiet and formal manner may have disappointed those who thought he would be more like ‘one of them’, but he carried out his duties conscientiously and without controversy. An athletic stadium in Hamilton was named for him, along with streets in Wanganui and Wellington and a house at his old school.At the end of his term in September 1972 Porritt returned to England. In 1973 he was created a life peer, taking the title Baron Porritt of Wanganui and Hampstead, and including in his coat of arms two fern fronds and a tui. Sitting in the House of Lords as an independent member, he strenuously opposed the immigration laws that would make it more difficult for New Zealanders to live and work in Britain. He kept in touch with New Zealand events and visited the country three times after retiring as Governor-General.Arthur Porritt died in London, aged 93, on 1 January 1994, survived by his wife and three children. He had been one of his generation’s best-known expatriates, who in his own words became a ‘complete Pommy’, but ‘never ceased to be a New Zealander’.Sold with a copy of his biography, No Ordinary Man.

Identified Rock Island Arsenal M15 General Officer Pistol with Holster, Shipping Carton, General Officer Flag and Accessories

by Rock Island Auction Company

September 13, 2015, 9:00 AM CST

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: $5,500 - $9,000

Description: Identified Rock Island Arsenal M15 General Officer Pistol with Holster, Shipping Carton, General Officer Flag and Accessories Manufactured by the Rock Island Arsenal in 1973. This pistol was issued to Brigadier General Herman Tenkin on November 19, 1973, and is complete with the Bucheimer black, open top General Officer holster, black leather "U.S." magazine pouch, three magazines, nylon cleaning pouch that contains (1) plated cleaning rod, (2) bore brush, (3) LSA oil and (4) cleaning patches, shipping carton and packing material and one star general officer flag. The M15 pistol was developed by the Rock Island Arsenal staff in 1972 as a replacement for the Colt Model M pistol issued to Army General Officers. The M15 pistol was a specially modified service Model 1911A1 pistol with shortened slide, barrel bushing, recoil spring plug and barrel, National Match trigger and low profile rear sight, combat style ramp front sight, special recoil spring guide, grooved main spring housing and checkered grip strap. The M15 pistols had commercial full checkered walnut stocks inlaid with the Rock Island Arsenal escutcheon on the right panel and a nickel-plated oblong nameplate on the left panel. The magazines had polished floorplates and were etched with the pistol serial number. All of the original markings were removed from the frames and slides of the M15 pistols. The right side of the frame of this pistol is engraved: "Serial No. GO 151". The left side of the slide is engraved: "General Officer Model/RIA" in two lines. The frame and slide markings are gold filled. The barrel is nickel plated, and the top of the chamber is marked: "45 AUTO/7791193". The sides of the frame and slide have a high polish blue finish. The top of the slide, sights, bottom of the frame and grip strap have a non-glare matt finish. The grip safety, main spring housing, safety lock and slide stop have a high polish blue finish. The trigger is nickel plated, and the sides of the hammer are polished bright. The M15 General Officer pistol was issued to Regular Army, Army Reserve and Army National Guard general officers from 1972 -1982. Manufacturer: Rock Island Arsenal Model: 1911A1 BBL: 4 1/4 inch round Stock: Gauge: 45 ACP Finish: blue Grips: walnut Serial Number: GO151 Class: Modern Handgun Condition: Excellent. The pistol retains 97% plus of the Arsenal applied high polish and matte finish. The front edges of the slide have traces of holster wear, and there are scattered spots of age discoloration on the top of the slide between the ejection port and the rear sight. The polished sides of the slide and frame have a few light scratches and storage marks. There are several tiny spots of surface rust on the bottom of the frame near the trigger guard and between the grip and the main spring housing. The bright finish on the sides of the hammer has spots of age discoloration. Two of the magazines are etched with the pistol serial number "151". The third magazine is not numbered but has the same polished floor plate as the numbered magazines. The un-numbered magazine has several spots of surface rust on the sides. The holster and magazine pouch are excellent with a few minor handling marks. The carton is solid and has BG Tenkin's name and address on the label. The New Jersey address indicates that he was probably a Army Reserve or National Guard general officer. The pistol shows little use; the limited wear appears to be the result of careless storage. This is an excellent M15 General Officer Pistol group.

Description: The Punjab campaign medal to Lieutenant-Colonel W. G. Prendergast, 8th Madras Light Cavalry, Persian Interpreter to the Commander-in-Chief during the second Sikh War, who later raised the 3rd Punjab CavalryPunjab 1848-49, 2 clasps, Chilianwala, Goojerat (Lieut. W. G. Prendergast, 8th Lt. Cavy. Persian Intr. to C. in [C]) final part of naming obscured by suspension claw, fitted with silver ribbon buckle, slight edge bruising, good very fine £900-1200---Ex D.N.W. 23 September 2005.William Grant Prendergast, the son of Lieutenant-General Sir Jeffrey Prendergast, Military Auditor General, Madras, was born in Madras on 24 June 1824. He was educated at Charterhouse and at Trinity College, Cambridge. He became a Cadet in the Bengal Service in 1834 and was appointed Cornet on 9 February 1835. He arrived in India in August of that year and was posted to the 8th Madras Light Cavalry. Promoted Lieutenant in July 1838, he acted as Interpreter and Quartermaster of his corps from January 1839 to October 1843. In 1842-43, he served as Brigade Quartermaster to the troops under Brigadier Young during the insurrection in Bundelkhund. Between January and March 1846 he officiated as second in command of the 16th Irregular Cavalry. In November of that year he was appointed Persian Interpreter to the Commander-in-Chief and held that post throughout the second Sikh War, during which he was present at Ramnuggur, and at the battles of Chilianwala and Goojerat.On 18 May 1849, having relinquished his appointment as Persian Interpreter, he started to raise the 3rd Punjab Cavalry, one of five regiments of irregular cavalry formed for the protection of the frontier from the Black Mountain of Hazara to the limits of Scinde. The 3rd Punjab Cavalry was subsequently amalgamated with the 1st Punjab Cavalry (raised by Lieutenant Henry Daly, of the 1st Bombay Fusiliers, at Lahore in the spring of 1849) to become Prince Albert Victor’s Own Cavalry (11th Frontier Force). Following its formation, the 3rd, under Prendergast’s command went to Amritsar, where in February 1850 it suppressed the mutiny of the 66th Bengal Native Infantry at Fort Govindgarh.In 1852 the regiment suffered severely from the loss of 300 horses from the fatal disease surra, which Prendergast ascribed to ‘necromancy’. Whether this unfortunate occurrence was by sorcery or not it ruined the regiment’s Horse Fund for years, and a special loan had to be obtained from the Government. In March 1854 Prendergast was officiating as Brigadier in the Punjab Irregular Force and took part in minor operations on the North West Frontier. He resumed command of the 3rd Punjab Cavalry in 1856, but went home on two years furlough in March. He married in 1857 and returned to India in 1858 only to die of cholera at Alipore, Calcutta, on 15 September of that year.Ref: Officers of the Bengal Army 1758-1834 (Hodson); India’s Army (Jackson). With copied service details.

Harrison in 1963. Major General Harrison was the Adjutant General of the Alabama Army National Guard. The pistol is accompanied by a Colt factory letter that lists the finish as "Blue" and states that it was delivered to the Springfield Armory on January 30, 1945. The pistol has an arsenal parkerized finish with polished chamber and checkered walnut grips inlaid with nickel silver Colt medallions. Most of the Model 1903 .32 ACP pistols issued to Army general officers were re-parkerized by the Army prior to issue. The pistol has the late style square back rear sight and serrated ramp front sight. The right side of the frame is roll-stamped "U.S. PROPERTY" and the left side is roll-stamped with the serial number 570865. The left front trigger guard bow is stamped with the Colt 'Triangle/VP" proof mark. The right side of the slide is roll-stamped "COLT AUTOMATIC/CALIBRE 32 RIMLESS SMOKELESS" in two lines below the ejection port. The opposite side of the slide is roll-stamped with the Colt Hartford address and patent dates in two lines with the Rampant Colt trademark stamped behind the slide serrations. The blue magazine is stamped "CAL .32/COLT" on the floor plate. The pistol is complete with a spare magazine and the black leather General Officer (GO)'s belt and holster that were originally issued with the pistol. The belt has the two piece gold plated GO belt buckle and the black leather open top holster has a gold plated retaining strap and rivets. Also included in the group are a pair of cream colored plastic grips with "MAJ. GEN./A.C. HARRISON/1963" inscribed on the right grip, WWII ebony swagger stick with nickel plated .50 cal. cartridge handle and .30 cal. bullet tip; the cartridge has a 1943 dated Australian Six-Pence on the case head and is engraved: "SYDNEY/BRISBANE/GOODNOUGH ISLAND/DOBEDURA//MANILA" and the stick is inlaid with the silver initials "A/C/H" (the engraving suggests that Major General Harrison was fortunate enough to serve in desirable rear areas during WWII), swagger stick with nickel plated .50 cal cartridge Major General two-star insignia and Infantry crossed rifles on the side, ebony body and nickel-plated .30 cartridge tip, Legion of Merit medal and ribbon in original case and a pair of Major General two-star insignia with assorted buttons, hat insignia ribbon and unit patch.
