Remington New York State Rolling Block Prize Rifle Property of A. G. Todd with Presentation

Lot # 26 (Sale Order: 26 of 788)      

50-70, 36” barrel with special six-groove increased twist rate rifling with a mostly bright very good plus bore showing some sparsely scattered areas of light pitting and otherwise crisp rifling throughout. The metal surfaces of this rifle have mostly toned to a mix of pleasant plum-brown patina and mild gunmetal gray showing some sparsely scattered spots of old minor oxidation and handling marks. The action retains some flakes of silvery case-hardened patina with smoky remnants of colors lurking about the protected areas. The tang markings remain intact and strong and the Buffington rear sight shows some lovely bright fire blue throughout. The barrel is neatly engraved in large script letters behind the rear sight with Todd’s initials “A. G. T.” The smooth walnut buttstock and forend remain in very fine condition showing somewhat worn original oil finish, a few old slivers and shallow flakes along the ramrod channel and some other scattered light dings. The stocks maintain an attractive honest appearance and retain excellent metal-to-wood fit. The right side butt shows a small silver oval inlay that is neatly engraved “Co G. SEVENTH REGT. / Team of Three / First Prize 1888”. Private A. G. Todd is listed under Marksman qualification in the New York Adjutant General Report of 1888. He is later listed, promoted to corporal, in the 1892 report under the Sharpshooters list as having qualified for 18 successive years. The rifle is equipped with a period front sight hood, the patented sling swivels and cleaning rod are intact and the action seems to function well mechanically. A very attractive rifle with some wonderful New York National Guard history that would make a fine addition to any U.S. martial or New York arms collection. (13C9670-324) {ANTIQUE} [David & Lore Squier Collection] (1200/1800)

serial #H42726, 38-40, 28” tapered octagon barrel with a bright very good plus bore showing some sparsely scattered light pitting and strong rifling throughout.

The heel shows “16 / 105” and “2 / (Crossed Flags) / NY” signal Corps stamp and the right side butt shows large “3d R.C.” The carbine is equipped with later Model 1879 buckhorn sight, all other appropriate hardware is intact and the action seems to function well mechanically.

Extraordinary Custom Mike Dubber Engraved Colt Single Action Army Revolver

Lot # 30 (Sale Order: 30 of 788)      

serial #S21651A, 45 Colt, 5 1/2” barrel with a bright, unfired bore. Venerated artisan Mike Dubber has adorned this exceptional revolver in a manner in which only he can. The arm retains all of its exceptional post-engraving wet-look Royal Blue. Dubber has engraved the arm in a C-plus coverage with the finest quality tight flowing intertwining scroll throughout and has specially, painstakingly, relieved the background area to highlight the exceptional quality scrollwork, the background then finely matted giving a relief-type effect. The principal panels and radii of the arm are all outlined in wonderful fine gold wire inlay including bands at muzzle and breech of the barrel and ejector rod housing and exceptional flourishes of gold inlay scroll flanking the front sight and right and left radii of the frame at the breech. The side of the ejector rod housing and rear of the grip strap have dual Art Deco-like spear head adornments and the Rampant Colt and the factory barrel markings are inlaid in gold as well; even the edge of the ejector rod head has fine acanthus leaf accent. The right side of the frame features a federal shield with “E Pluribus Unum” in riband, one of the stars within the shield and the vertical lines inlaid in platinum, the balance in gold; the depiction was drawn from a rendition shown in famous designer, calligrapher and engraver, John M Bergling’s book Ornamental Designs and Illustrations; 4th Edition. The arm wears a beautiful Dan Chesiack one piece ivory grip with cream and marshmallow tones and nice ivory grain figure at the butt. The arm comes in a blue Colt Custom Shop box with white outer sleeve with no end label, the original factory instruction pamphlet and papers are included and included is a letter of authentication from the engraver delineating all of the painstaking steps and wonderful work done on the arm, it is of-course unturned, unfired since leaving Mr. Dubber’s hands; it is engraver-signed on the underside of the barrel ahead of the base pin. An absolutely stunning revolver, perfection in ivory, blued steel, gold and platinum. (3E10066-4) {MODERN} (5000/7000)

Interesting US Colt Artillery Model Single Action Army Revolver with Inscription

Lot # 31 (Sale Order: 31 of 788)      

serial #18775, 45 Colt, 5 1/2” barrel with a bright very fine black powder-rifled bore showing a few scattered spots of light oxidation here and there. A rather interesting martial revolver, clearly one of the cavalry models refitted at Colt and returned in an artillery configuration. The barrel exhibits perhaps 60-70% fading blue with strong blue in the flutes of the ejector rod housing, the balance flaked to a plum brown and pewter patina. The cylinder exhibits trace blue with strong blue within the flutes and has a number of rotational marks. The frame retains smoky blue-gray remnants of color case-hardening with two line patent dates and very crisp “US” marking at the left. Triggerguard exhibits some strong blue at the front of the root, the balance faded to a pewter gray, the backstrap is similar. The hammer appears very much to be a later replacement as it exhibits strong color case-hardening and coarsely checkered bordered thumb spur, or could merely be from the refinish at Colt. The one-piece smooth walnut grip rates very good-fine, now devoid of varnish but still fitting the grip frame very well with dual notches carved along the sharp edge of the butt left and right; it is unnumbered. Frame is numbered “18775”, triggerguard “131933” with “K” inspectors marking, the only discernible numbers on the cylinder are “11”, the butt is numbered “1170” and of the barrel is numbered “8800” with capital “P” firing proofs. Interestingly, period-scratched lightly but neatly along the flat surface of the butt is “Jim Turpin”. A quick check reveals the book The Frontier Trail; or, From Cowboy To Colonel; an authentic narrative of forty-three years in the old West as cattleman, Indian fighter and army officer" (by Colonel Homer W. Wheeler, United States Army Ret. (late fifth cavalry) © 1923 Times Mirror Press Los Angeles) mentions First Sgt. James Turpin multiple times, as having been from Troop L, 5th U.S. Cavalry, and having been involved at the Dull Knife Fight, accounts of that struggle as well mention Turpin. Interestingly serial number 18732 was issued to Troop C, 5th US Cavalry, in 1886. Obviously the conversion to artillery took place after that era but certainly Sgt. Turpin could have been the owner of gun “1170” whose serial number is certainly early enough for 1876. A very intriguing Single Action Army Artillery Model revolver that may well benefit from further research. (3C9997-301) {ANTIQUE} [John Lipski Collection] (2500/4000)

US Colt Artillery Model Single Action Army Revolver

Lot # 32 (Sale Order: 32 of 788)      

serial #55523, 45 Colt, 5 1/2” barrel with a bright fine black powder-rifled bore showing some very sparsely scattered very light oxidation and perhaps a few very minor pits. The metal surfaces on this salty veteran are an overall dull gunmetal gray and pewter patina with the barrel showing some plum tones, the frame with some remnants of a smoky deep blue-gray. There are near overall scattered light pinprick pits, a few that may be characterized as a bit more moderate, primarily on recoil shield and loading gate, and an area on the cylinder where some contaminant has left mottled streaky pitting. The one-piece walnut grip rates about very good showing appropriate wear from the years with the expected minor dings, dents and chips here and there but with a 1” crack at top of left grip. There is no evident marking in the interior with what appears to be Rinaldo Carr’s cartouche on right of grip and Odus Horney’s cartouche on left grip, both are fairly worn and difficult to discern. The frame features the three line patent date and a very good “US” while the barrel marking is somewhat light. The frame is numbered “55523” and “DFC” inspected, the triggerguard “50432” and Nettleton inspected, grip frame is numbered merely “8201”, the cylinder is numbered “5050” with the barrel being numbered “3533”, DFC inspected, with P firing proofs on the barrel and the cylinder. The bull’s-eye ejector rod head is very slightly bent and the arm seems to function well mechanically although the hammer spring is quite heavy. A very honest artillery model US Colt with a very “been there, done that” look. (3B9997-360) {ANTIQUE} [John Lipski Collection] (2000/4000)

Colt Single Action Army Revolver

Lot # 33 (Sale Order: 33 of 788)      

serial #154723, 45 Colt, 4 3/4” barrel with a very good bore which shows strong black powder rifling but scattered light pitting, a few spots a bit more moderate. The revolver retains about 92-95% later antique nickel, the flaked and worn areas a dull gray and speckled brown patina. The frame markings and Rampant Colt remain sharp while the barrel marking is very soft, the caliber marking still legible. The checkered hard rubber Rampant Colt grips rate very good and are scratch-numbered to the gun on their interior “4723”, showing worn points but their fit is precise. The gun functions mechanically for the most part, the half cock notch or nose of the trigger is worn as the hammer sits a bit far forward in the safety position. Manufactured in 1894, all of the serial numbers are matching with no discernible number on the cylinder, the revolver remaining attractive with a very frontier look.

US Colt Model 1873 Single Action Army Revolver with Cavalry Marking

Lot # 34 (Sale Order: 34 of 788)      

serial #120407, 45 Colt, 7 1/2” barrel with a bright very fine black powder-rifled bore which shows some sparsely scattered spots of very light oxidation. The barrel and ejector rod housing are now a soft plum patina with the barrel address fully evident, there being some remnants of some very light pinprick pitting scattered about here and there. The cylinder is primarily a dull plum and pewter with faded gray-blue within the flutes and a light rotational marking. The frame is now a mottled pewter gunmetal case-hardened patina with some scattered light pinprick pitting, the left with three line patent dates and a slightly softened “US” marking. The triggerguard root shows some strong trace remnants of original blue while the backstrap is a dull pewter gray. The one-piece walnut grip fits well and rates very good as lightly cleaned, there are the remnants of an ink pen marking within but it is not discernible. The frame, triggerguard, and butt are all numbered alike with the cylinder numbered “0407” and the barrel numbered similarly “0407”, also with “3736. The underside of barrel, front of frame and cylinder are all “DFC” inspector marked as-is the right side butt flat. Additionally the butt proper is stamped “3 CAV” and “8”, the number “8” is also stamped on the left butt flat along with “T Bradford” neatly stamped beneath it. The gun seems to function mechanically for the most part however the cylinder bolt or perhaps the stop cuts are loose as the cylinder can be made to counter-rotate and overcome the stop on a few of the chambers. Interestingly, gun number 120408 was a New York Militia-issued revolver (Kopec-Fenn) and 120405 was a Post Office Department-issued gun (SRS). A bit of further research may indeed prove who the elusive “T Bradford” is and in which “3rd Cavalry” he was enlisted.

Additionally the butt proper is stamped “3 CAV” and “8”, the number “8” is also stamped on the left butt flat along with “T Bradford” neatly stamped beneath it. The gun seems to function mechanically for the most part however the cylinder bolt or perhaps the stop cuts are loose as the cylinder can be made to counter-rotate and overcome the stop on a few of the chambers. Interestingly, gun number 120408 was a New York Militia-issued revolver (Kopec-Fenn) and 120405 was a Post Office Department-issued gun (SRS). A bit of further research may indeed prove who the elusive “T Bradford” is and in which “3rd Cavalry” he was enlisted.

serial #7686c, 8mm Mauser, 22” barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces of this duv 43-coded rifle retain nearly 90% original blue showing some light operational wear along the rear action housing and most of the loss is due to thinning to gray-brown patina along the edges of the magazine and muzzle.

The stock markings show honest wear from the years and are somewhat soft but mostly legible, there is a cursive “d” in the sling cutout, a Waffenamt on the pistolgrip and toe line and the right side butt shows a pair of good “(Eagle) / WaA214” Waffenamts.

The heavy replica scope mount is of excellent-quality older construction and has toned to a mottled gray-brown patina showing some light dings and old oxidation staining. The underside shows a large “WH” stamp and smaller “E”, the front edge shows an off-struck facsimile Waffenamt and numeral “7” and the mount fits securely on the rifle. The assembly holds an original cag-coded ZF41/1 scope that retains about 90% original blue showing some edge wear and small areas toning to mild brown patina. The markings are strong showing a blue-filled “+”, the number “4075” is crossed out and “4080” re-stamped.

Parker SC Grade Single Barrel Trap Shotgun

Lot # 49 (Sale Order: 49 of 788)      

serial #227410, 12 ga., 32” ventilated rib barrel choked full with a bright excellent bore. The barrel retains about 95-97% original blue, the loss due to even fading to a rather plum-tone, showing a bit of wear at the muzzle with a few very light handling marks here or there. The frame features excellent quality C-grade open flowing scroll with background stippled accents, the makers name left and right, with the typical flying pigeon on the belly. It is primarily a mottled gray-blue case-hardened patina with some trace colors left and right with generous colors on the belly of the frame. The checkered walnut pistolgrip buttstock rates very fine showing only light handling marks and crisp checkering with some shimmering grain figure at the butt, there is a very tiny chip missing at the rear of the upper tang. The semi-beavertail style target forend is similar with three or four light cracks at the iron which could no doubt be arrested by a competent ‘smith. The length of pull to the 1” solid rubber pad is 14 1/4” with drops of 1 1/2” and 2”; the silver oval monogram plate along the toeline remains un-engraved. The arm seems to lock up tightly and is on-face and functions well, the ejector has been disabled. Features dual ivory target beads, the Bradley front base is in place, the white bead insert has fallen out. A sharp-looking single barrel Parker that is itching to get back at five-stand.
