SERIAL NUMBER: NSN DESIGN: This pistol was made by Jacob Rupertus in Philadelphia, circa 1860’s. It is an 8 shot .22 caliber piece with 8 barrels in a pepperbox, revolving barrel design. The pistol appears to have been refinished in nickel. Note: this piece is not in firing condition. The rotating barrels do not stay in battery and are loose to the frame. The mainspring appears to be gone. Also, one of the 8 barrels has been blown out rendering it improbable that this piece will again be a shooter. A parts gun or shadow box relic. MATERIAL/FINISH COMPOSITION: Nickeled steel; wooden grips. CONDITION: Poor. INVENTORY NO./CATEGORY: 5661-001/ANT ESTIMATE: $50-100
