Flintlock Trade Pistol

Lot # 1 (Sale Order: 1 of 498)      

.69 caliber, 9.75" round barrel, iron furniture, walnut stock. 4.75" flat bevelled lock with teat at rear, removable faceted, fenced, iron pan with bridle, flat reinforced cock. Flat iron S-shaped side plate, double strapped iron barrel band at muzzle, iron triggerguard and butt cap. Semi-tulip head iron ramrod. A .75" 9-petal flower is neatly carved in the stock, forward of the triggerguard. An attractive and untouched early trade pistol.

Condition: Good overall with a deeply oxidize brown patina showing scattered surface roughness, some pinpricking and pitting. Lock functional, but mainspring is very weak, suggesting it may be cracked. Lock appears to be in original flintlock configuration. Stock with bumps and dings, scattered mars and a couple of old grain cracks. A nice early trade gun with that fresh "out of the attic appearance."
