Colt 1908 Vest Pocket Pistol Belonging to Daniel J. Leary of Waterbury Connecticut

Colt 1908 Vest Pocket Pistol Belonging to Daniel J. Leary of Waterbury Connecticut

Lot # 1 (Sale Order: 1 of 1100)

serial #400240, 25 ACP, 2" barrel with a bright excellent bore. This is a lovely little and somewhat storied pistol. The metal surfaces retain about 98% to near 99% original blue, showing just the tiniest bit of sharp edge wear near the muzzle on the slide. Trigger, grip safety and manual safety show all their original vibrant color case-hardening. The pistol features factory mother-of-pearl grips, the right precisely engraved in block letters "D.J.Leary". The pistol includes a very nice two tone magazine and comes in its original purple-tone box, numbered to the gun on its bottom, in black grease pencil. Included is a small boar bristle cleaning brush and onion skin wrapping on the interior. The box itself rates very good with minor scuffing along the periphery of the edges of the lid and a very good end label, with surcharge label which reads "pearl blue". Daniel J Leary was the Comptroller of Waterbury Connecticut from 1931-1937. In 1938 a grand jury returned indictments against 26 officials in Waterbury Connecticut including the Waterbury Mayor and Lieut. Gov. of the State of Connecticut Frank Hayes, along with others, including his Comptroller Daniel J Leary, citing corruption and defrauding of the City of Waterbury to the tune of $1,000,000. Eighteen of those were convicted, Leary was sentenced to 10-15 years and subsequently disappeared while on bond, the city levying a $600,000 lien against his assets, he would stay "on the lam" after having assumed another identity for five years, eventually he was caught in Chicago when recognized by a former Waterbury resident who pointed him out as a fugitive to a beat cop walking the street. The pistol was consigned by a long-time Connecticut gun dealer who obtained it from a "family friend" who received the pistol after Leary "disappeared". After his release, Leary would remain a prominent Waterbury citizen and continue running the soft drink company he had owned and directed to prior to his stint as City Comptroller. Overall an absolutely fabulous pistol in its own right, all the more interesting by its ownership from this prominent, and one may argue notorious, Waterbury resident. (38211-23) {C&R}

serial #236349, 270 Win, 24" barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces retain about 92% original blue, the loss is due primarily to even fading and high edge wear, most prevalent on the receiver and bow of the triggerguard.

This is a lovely transition gun made in Meriden under the then-brand new, Remington management (barrel code indicating January 1937 manufacture). The barrels on this lovely shotgun retain about 98% plus original blue, the loss is due primarily to just some very light fading and very sparsely scattered very light handling marks here or there from the years. The "0" frame retains 98 to near 99% vivid original color case-hardening showing only the very slightest wear, with a very tiny amount of surface oxidation on the belly of the frame, were the gun not in such lovely condition it would not even bear mention. The triggerguard retains all its original blue and the triggers show only light wear.

A couple of the screw slots show some light damage and there are circumferential scratches around each of the screw holes in the bottom metal, they certainly could be toned down with some applied blue if one wished. Overall a very nice Winchester 54 in the desirable 22 Hornet chambering. (38218-60) {C&R} [Ken Waters Collection]

Custom Remington Hepburn Offhand Sporting and Target Rifle by David Crossno

Custom Remington Hepburn Offhand Sporting and Target Rifle by David Crossno

Lot # 14 (Sale Order: 14 of 1100)

serial #009, 22 LR, 28" medium weight octagon Green Mountain barrel with a bright excellent bore. This is an absolutely lovely and very stunning rifle, likely one of the last of that David Crossno worked on, at a cost of a just around $4000 to the man who contracted the rifle. The barrel retains about 99% top-quality rust blue with a bright-polished muzzle face with an 11ç target crown. The frame, triggerguard and forend nosecap retain a similar amount of vivid original color case-hardening, toning a bit on the thumb piece of the lever and on the frame near it. Breechblock, hammer, triggers and all screws show lovely pale brilliant nitre blue; there are some very very light scuffs around a couple of the screw holes but they are very unobtrusive and missed at first glance. The rifle is stocked in exhibition grade American black walnut with a flared left-side cheekpiece and flawlessly executed borderless checkered panels at both pistolgrip and on forend; the stocks rating excellent to as-new. The rifle is sighted with a quality globe front sight with spirit level (the inserts are not present) and a nice-quality medium range vernier rear sight which is adjustable for both windage and elevation, with a five-position aperture. The length of pull to the solid 1" Olde English rifle pad is 14 1/2" to the front trigger. The arm is equipped with double set triggers which seem to function properly. Sadly David Crossno left this great rifleman's fraternity in November of last year, so no more of his fine, high-quality rifles will be had. A very seldom-encountered opportunity to own one of these excellent, modern Remington Hepburn rifles built by this master craftsman. (38221-1) {MODERN}

Winchester Pre '64 Model 70 Alaskan Bolt Action Rifle in Original Factory Box

Winchester Pre '64 Model 70 Alaskan Bolt Action Rifle in Original Factory Box

Lot # 15 (Sale Order: 15 of 1100)

serial #454307, 338 Win mag, 25" barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces on this lovely rifle retain about 98 to near 99% original blue, the loss is due to a few sparse very light handling marks here or there with a bit of edge wear and the knob toning slightly; there is light evidence of scope bases having been mounted on the receiver rings. The bolt body remains bright with a bit of hardened oil and there is a light rub mark on the handle, likely from contact with a scope, it is appropriately numbered to the gun. The checkered walnut pistolgrip Monte Carlo buttstock rates excellent, again showing only a few minor handling marks, most prominent in the area beneath the bolt handle, likely from fingernails or a ring. The factory lightning bolt "Winchester" recoil pad is intact and the rifle is very honest overall. The original silver bead front sight is in place as is the folding leaf rear sight; the front sight hood is present and shows a few minor scratches. The original hangtag is present on the triggerguard of the gun showing a few creases and folds with a bit of ingrained soiling, the string toning from the years to a pinkish-tone. Also included is the original factory box, numbered to the gun on the end label. The box rates excellent with a crisp end label and all the original interior cardboard separators intact, as well as the original onion skin wrapping, the "Winchester-Western Division of Olin Mathieson Chemical Corporation" bolt tag, serial numbered to the gun; the original three tape wraps are intact at the rear of the box lid, the tape only been having cut along its front edge (giving the box top a "hinged" type of effect). It is likely this rifle was shipped to Mr. Waters for evaluation, this example having shipped in 1959, the first year the "Alaskan" was available. A lovely rifle overall that looks like it came right out of the box yesterday, but for the few very minor handling marks, from the collection of this famous writer-cartridge developer.

Rare Nickel Smith & Wesson Model No. 1 1/2 First Issue Revolver

Rare Nickel Smith & Wesson Model No. 1 1/2 First Issue Revolver

Lot # 18 (Sale Order: 18 of 1100)

serial #4969, .32 RF, 3 1/2" ribbed octagon barrel with a very good plus bore which is mostly bright with very sharp rifling and scattered very light pitting or oxidation. The metal surfaces on this rare full-nickel revolver retain about 97 to perhaps 98% original nickel. There is some light flaking near the muzzle and at the underside of the barrel with some very light loss on the sharp edges of the cylinder, the frame with some very light oxidation at the rear of the butt (there is a small pit in this area as well). There are the few minor handling marks here and there with a number of scratches around the sideplate screw; they are very forgivable given the very fine condition of the balance of this arm. The smooth rosewood grips rate very good plus with nearly all their original varnish, showing only light wear along the sharp edges at the butt, with flaking on the underside. All of the assembly numbers are matching and the gun seems to function fairly well mechanically with a slight bit of over-timing, however the barrel-to-frame fit is rather tight with the tiniest amount of vertical play perceivable. The included factory letter verifies the configuration, although no finishes are listed in the entire 150 gun shipment, and suggests it was shipped from the factory in September 1865 to JW Storrs in New York. The letter mentions that it is not uncommon for finishes to be left out of the factory records, this arm appears original in every respect showing that nice antique nickel hue that comes from the years. (38221-8) {ANTIQUE}

Lot # 19 (Sale Order: 19 of 1100)

serial #2789, .32 RF, 5" ribbed octagon barrel with a very good plus bore which is mostly bright with sharp rifling showing scattered minor pitting or oxidation. The barrel on this early two-pin frame revolver is an even mix of flaked brown, pewter gray patina and some strong trace original blue, also showing minor oxidation and some light pitting along the right barrel flat. The cylinder is a very pleasing mix of flaked plum, fading speckles of original blue and some toning to pewter where it laid on the cylinder through the years. The frame retains some strong original blue, perhaps 60% remaining which is quite bright in areas, others flaked to a smooth plum tone and wear to pewter on the sharp edges; the hammer shows some trace case colors in the protected areas especially along the spine. The smooth rosewood grips rate about very good showing much original varnish with even flaking, more prominent on the left grip with a few impact marks along the butt, they are stamp-numbered to the gun. The assembly numbers are all matching, barrel-to-frame fit is very good and the gun functions very well mechanically. No doubt private-purchased for Civil War use, the included factory letter shows shipment to arms dealers Cooper & Pond in New York City, the letter suggesting shipment in October 1861. Overall a fine example in very good mechanical condition that no doubt saw service in the American Civil War. (38221-2) {ANTIQUE}

The diamond checkered hard rubber factory grips with S&W logo rate excellent with a few minor handling marks. All appropriate parts and the grips are correctly serial numbered to the gun. The extractor rod head is missing but timing and lock up are excellent. A nice condition early M&P. (6520-2493) {C&R} [Richard "Stretch" Kennedy Collection]
