|( ID: rf686 )|
A premier example of this famous pistol. This example is in mint condition silver mounted with beautiful niello work, as well as a finely made ballbutt of proper flattened form. Every seperate silver piece is hallmarked "84" and the primary piece near the trigger is hallmarked "84" with an assayer stamp and the date 1865, dating this example just to the end of the Caucasian wars of 1847 through the 1860s.
An excellent and large example. 20" overall length.
