serial #1757, 30 RF, 3" four barrel cluster with bores that shows some scattered patches of light pitting. This pepperbox is in wonderful condition. The left side of frame is marked "C. SHARPS / PATENT 1859" in circular pattern and the right side of frame is marked "C. SHARPS & CO / PHILADA, PA" in the same circular pattern. The barrels retain about 95% original blue with wear just on outer edges and with exposed metal showing a smooth light gray patina. The frame retains about 85% original silver-plated finish with most loss being on the backstrap and a couple small areas just ahead of the grips on side of frame. The checkered gutta percha grips rate excellent with sharp checkering and no chips. The pistol comes in a blue baize lined Tipping & Lawden style mahogany case with burl lid. The interior of the case has no covered compartments and the included accessories are a brass handled cleaning rod and a pewter oiler. A minty Sharps pepperbox in a very attractive case which is in excellent condition. (16229-283) {ANTIQUE} [Elliott Riggs Collection]
