Model 1874 Sharps Buffalo Rifle Shipped To Dodge City Kansas In 1877 Model 1874 Sharps Buffalo Rifle Shipped To Dodge City Kansas In 1877

Model 1874 Sharps Buffalo Rifle Shipped To Dodge City Kansas In 1877

Lot #286 (Sale Order 1 of 282)

.45-2-7/8 caliber, 30" heavy octagonal barrel, S/N 159506. Weighs 13 3/4 lbs. Double triggers, open sights, double forearm screws, standard walnut stock and forearm, checkered metal buttplate.  This rifle was invoiced January 4, 1877, to Sharps dealer, F.C. Zimmerman, Front Street, Dodge City, Kansas.  It is noted as a Model 1874 Sharps rifle.  Blade front sight with a Lawrence rear barrel sight. This rifle arrived in Dodge City while Wyatt Earp was an assistant deputy marshal. In July of 1877 Wyatt joined the Dodge City Police force.

In November of 1877, Bat Masterson was elected sheriff of Ford County, Kansas by three votes, beating out Larry Deger. Bat’s election was duly reported in the November 24th issue of the Dodge City Times. Frederick Carl Zimmerman arrived in Dodge City in September of 1872. Zimmerman was an experienced gunsmith who had practiced in Germany, Paris, and London. His hardware store on Front Street was one of the leading businesses in Dodge. He knew Wyatt, Bat, and all the legendary Dodge City gunfighters. Frederick Zimmerman died in Dodge City in January of 1888. Any Sharps “Buffalo Gun” shipped west is historical, but this Sharps that was shipped to Zimmerman’s on Front Street in the year when Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson were patrolling the dusty, muddy streets of Dodge is a true and authentic treasure from the American West. 

Condition: Barrel has a nice smooth brown patina, with excellent barrel markings. Stock and forearm show use. Some nicks and dings.

General F.S. Dankin. Dankin approved of the action and it was part of the group sent to the Creedmoor matches in September 1877, where it may have been used by any member of the the United States Creedmoor Team. After the matches, it was again returned to the company and on March 11, 1879 was shipped to another famous shooter of the day G.W. Scofield of Cleveland, Ohio. With the exception of this rifle, the remainder of the first type model 1877's were shipped to N. Curry of San Francisco in May 1878."

Special Order Marlin Model 1889 Deluxe Rifle Belonging to Annie Oakley with Factory Letter Special Order Marlin Model 1889 Deluxe Rifle Belonging to Annie Oakley with Factory Letter

Special Order Marlin Model 1889 Deluxe Rifle Belonging to Annie Oakley with Factory Letter

Lot #293 (Sale Order 8 of 282)

.44-40 caliber, 20" half-octagonal-to-round barrel with half magazine, S/N 100174. Checkered straight grip stock that is shorter than standard with Marlin metal buttplate, checkered forearm. Factory letter states serial number 100,174, 1889, .44-40 caliber, 1/2 magazine, date shipped November 4, 1893.  This rifle was used by the Annie Oakley Foundation in their display. This is one of only four Model 1889 Marlins with 20" barrel and factory shortened stock attributed to Annie Oakley.  Annie Oakley had a relationship with Marlin similar to Bat Masterson's with Colt Firearms.  Annie's special order deluxe engraved Marlin Factory Presentation short 1889, serial number 98850 and the present rifle, serial number 100174, are the only examples of the four attributed pieces that are short barrel, half magazine and short butt stock. Other than factory engraving and factory presentation, the two rifles are identical and unique.  As Marlin S/N 100,174 was made and shipped shortly after Annie's special presentation 1889, it stands to reason that she ordered a plainer version for use rather that wearing out a very valuable and beautiful gun presented to her by the Marlin Company.  Both rifles have been displayed together for this reason and an archive of relevant paperwork provides further convincing provenance as to Annie's ownership.  Includes factory letter confirming configuration.

Condition: This rifle shows some use. Barrel and magazine tube have nice plum finish with some blue blending in. The frame is a silvery gray to brown. Stock with some nicks and dings. Bore is very good and mechanically excellent.

Model 1881 Semi-Deluxe Marlin Rifle with Factory Letter

Lot #294 (Sale Order 9 of 282)

.40-60 caliber, 28" round barrel, with full magazine, S/N 12798 (ca 1886).  Blued finish with case hardened hammer, lever, and buttplate.  Varnished walnut half stock with pistol grip.  Blade front sight with elevator rear sight and tang mounted aperture.  Barrel marked with third type two-line Marlin address and patent dates with 1880 re-issue marking.  Serial number forward of lever with caliber on top of barrel forward of frame.  Marlin manufactured a total of 1303 made with the pistol grip configuration, though the lack of checkering as found on similar pieces and round barrel accompanied by full-length magazine reinforces the true rarity of this item.  Includes factory letter confirming figuration and February 1886 shipping date.

Provenance:Ex: Warren Webster Collection, Robert Lyles Collection

Condition: Fine. Most of the blued finish remains on barrel with some thinning and wear from age and use with exposed areas taking on a light plum patina.  Some similar wear to frame, exposed areas taking on a mottled patination. Some very minor case coloring remaining on hammer. Stock retains its coat of varnish with some scattered handling marks and blemishes, but no serious cracks or splits. Bore is good with visible rifling and minor old pitting.

Possibly the rarest 1876 Winchester that we have ever catalogued with all features confirmed by Winchester factory letter. Serial number 9968. The round 22" barrel fully matted, engraved on right of matte Winchester Repeating Arms Company, New Haven, CT. On left of matte, Kings Improvement Patented March 29, 1866.

Engraving on gold plaque is excellent. Action is excellent. Bore is like a mirror and shows little or no wear. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about this amazing gun is a factory letter from Thomas Hall dated 1967 verifying all features.

**An Important Factory Engraved Savage Rival Grade Model 99, Made for the Pan-Pacific Exhibition **An Important Factory Engraved Savage Rival Grade Model 99, Made for the Pan-Pacific Exhibition

**An Important Factory Engraved Savage Rival Grade Model 99, Made for the Pan-Pacific Exhibition

Lot #296 (Sale Order 11 of 282)

**An Important Factory Engraved Savage Rival Grade Model 99, Made for the Pan-Pacific Exhibition and Later Sold to P.J. Noel

.250 caliber, 22" barrel. A letter from Savage Arms Company dated January 10, 1917 specifically refers to this rifle serial number 156371.

"The fancy .250 rifle which we have in stock has a beautiful piece of circassion walnut in the stock and forearm and has engraved on one side of the receiver a woodland scene with four deer and on the other side a mountain scene showing a hunter and a bear. It has the new full carved pistol grip with a very fine grade of checking and a matted barrel but no elevated rib on the barrel."  

"We made for exhibition purposes at the Panama Pacific Exhibition last year several highly engraved and checked rifles. Perhaps you saw them when you were there. A great portion of these have been sold, but there is one in particular which has a beautifully finished stoned action which we still have and perhaps you would like to add it to your collection." 

Accompanying this magnificent exhibition Savage is an unprecedented series of five letters to Mr. Noel from Chester A. Smith representing the Savage Arms Company. In addition there is an original target, tested on 3/24/1917 with 10 shots in the black. Target with typed notation, "Ten shots with .250-3000 rifle, serial number 156371 at 75 yards. Specially tested for P.J. Noel."

On March 27, 1917 this Savage was shipped to P.J. Noel. The shipping receipt reads as follows: 

1 Rifle M/99 .250-3000 Savage #156371 (214) Price $145.

Circassian Walnut

Checked Grade C

Engraved Grade E

Stoned Action

Matted Barrel

Sights Ivory bead, 6B, 1B



The original check for the rifle in the amount of $154.48 is included. 

The historical archive serves to enhance this magnificent rifle to the degree that it is a one piece Savage exhibition in any collection of the very finest Savage 99 rifles. The engraving on the receiver is of a particularly high order and equal to the finest works by any of the Ulrichs. The quality of the wood is finer than Winchester's 4x.  

**Requires C&R or FFL

Condition: The condition of the Pan Pacific Savage is, as with all of P.J. Noel's rifles and pistols, unused. The wood retains nearly all of its original high-polished factory varnish. The checkering is as crisp as the day it was shipped. The Pan Pacific Savage does have some minor patches of corrosion from poor storage, particularly on the left side of the receiver and the take down band. The right side is notably free of the storage issues and is practically pristine. The barrel retains nearly all of its brightly polished original blue. The full matted rib does have one minor spot just beyond the rear sight.  The lever retains nearly all of its original rainbow cased colors. The buttplate is pristine. The checkered trigger retains nearly all of its original finish. The engine-turned bolt shows no wear. The bore is pristine. The action functions perfectly. Further superlatives are unnecessary to describe this exhibition Savage. The original correspondence, target and shipping receipt are included.

**Extremely Rare Experimental M-1 Carbine Presented to Chief Ordnance Inspector Harry P. Davis, Plus

Lot #317 (Sale Order 32 of 282)

**Extremely Rare and Documented Experimental M-1 Carbine Presented to Chief Ordnance Inspector Harry P. Davis at Standard Productions in 1943 with Small Archive

.30 caliber, 18" barrel length, S/N 00-H-01.  Barrel marked near the front sight "9-4-43." Top of the receiver marked "US Carb -30 M1" over "Exp Mod HPD." Blue finish with fancy pistol grip stock and horn cover.  Horn buttplate with original OD green woven sling.

An extremely rare and exceptionally well documented Standard Products M1 Carbine presented to Chief Ordnance Inspector Harry P. Davis.  Standard Products in Port Clinton, Ohio, known during peace time as a manufacturer of automobile equipment was converted to war time manufacturing during the 1941 emergency.  While originally contracted to produce plastic products for the war efforts; this was changed to small arms with an original contract to produce 100,000 M1 rifles.  A later modification to the contract stipulated that 1,000 rifles were to be produced daily by April of 1943.  This contract was cancelled and a new contract was awarded to Standard Products to manufacture the M1 carbine in the quantity of 370,000. 

Key ordnance inspectors assigned to the Standard plant were trained at the Springfield Armory, Winchester Repeating Arms and General Motors Inland Division based in Dayton, Ohio.  Winchester being the designer of the M1 carbine, had a school dedicated to government small arms inspectors.  The school was under close supervision of Winchester and the Springfield Ordnance District. Standard Products inspectors attended this two week training course.  The following Standard Products plant small arms ordnance personal that filled key positions were as follows; Harry P. Davis, Raymond Ward, Marjorie Bluhm and Ellis C. Lenz.  

The provenance and documentation on this rare Presentation M1 Carbine are impeccable.  Included with this carbine is a binder with original and copied documents that detail the background of Standard Products war time effort.  Detailed plans and production efforts explaining the plant layout including dollar amounts the War Department provided for machinery and tooling.  Background of ordnance personnel and the training they received, including contractor personnel.  The logistics and supply chain management is outlined including a list of suppliers. 

Inspector's data included in the binder include a breakdown of the 3 major causes of carbine failures during range tests.  Standard Products employed 2 gunsmiths to adjust and correct the failures.  A list is provided showing the detailed efforts of the gunsmiths and what they did on the range during testing and throughout production.  Production flow data showing inspector's notes from floor production - to testing - to acceptance.  Original documents from Ordnance Department showing tentative specifications for the manufacturing of the carbines and the methods of inspection and tests.

Personal documents from The Standard Products Company come in the binder showing Mr. Harry Davis's appointment to the Ordnance Department dated April 20, 1944 and signed by Plant Manager L.T. Bracken.  Also included are a couple of reports written by Harry Davis with how production met requirements, a total of 12 pages, and signed by Mr. Davis.  The second is a report from Mr. Davis to a District Historian with an overview of The Standard Products Company efforts to execute the production of M1 Carbines, with hand written notes in the footers.

"An Industrial Wartime Achievement" book comes with this lot showing The Standard Products key employees to photographs of production employees.  The inside cover of the book is an original letter from President of The Standard Products Company, Dr. J.S. Reid, to Chief Inspector Carbine M1 Harry P. Davis simply dated VJ-Day.  The letter gives praise to Mr. Davis for his contributions to war time efforts and is signed JS Reid.    

This is a very rare and extremely well documented piece of World War II history showing the contributions of everyday Americans to the war effort.  It is estimated that as few as 50 of these experimental and presentation pieces were produced.  This specific piece is a treasure with all the documentation and provenance.

**Requires C&R or FFL

Condition: This Exp model carbine is in almost mint condition.  No wear to the finish.  Stock is excellent and the bore is excellent.  A rare Exp model carbine with excellent history.

A Rare and Early 16 A Rare and Early 16

A Rare and Early 16" Colt Single Action Army Revolver with Accompanying Article

Lot #363 (Sale Order 78 of 282)

.45 caliber, 16" barrel, S/N 25922. Manufactured in 1876. This rare, early long barrel single action can be considered a pre-Buntline as the serial number is ca 3,000 numbers earlier than the Buntline specials which are in the serial number range of 28800-28830. 16" barrel is properly numbered 5922 and was one of the most prized guns in the collection of famous Texas collector and museum curator, Gaines De Graffenried and was written up in the September 1957 Gun Report Magazine as a “Brush Buntline” and featured on the cover. This revolver was sold at auction by Christie's New York on June 19th 2001 as lot 120 from the De Graffenried Estate with an estimate of $10,000-$15,000. Cylinder is numbered 5410, but matches in condition and patination. Barrel has early roll die address and frame with two-line patent dates, doughnut ejector rod and what appears to be the original walnut grips. Bore light examination of the bore indicates barrel is original length and has not been stretched. A rudimentary rear sight has been crudely added to the frame and a modern front sight placed in the dovetail in place of the original front sight. Gun is accompanied by what appears to be its original skeleton shoulder stock.

Provenance:Article was done By Rodger N. Conger in a 1957 Gun Report. And was in the collection of Gaines De Graffenried

Condition: Gun is an overall pleasing brown patina with clear markings. Doughnut ejector rod appears to be a later replacement. Ejector rod housing itself is possibly replaced. Markings are good and easily visible. Backstrap retains traces of bright original blue. Figured walnut grip with some original varnish and some considerable wear and flaking. Bore rates fair-to-good. Action is crisp, but requires some adjustment. A spectacular Colt revolver from the Custer era. Brass shoulder stock retains much original nickel finish with the expected blemishes.

Extremely Rare and Possibly Unique Southern Percussion Revolver By V.G.H. Libeau New Orleans Extremely Rare and Possibly Unique Southern Percussion Revolver By V.G.H. Libeau New Orleans

Extremely Rare and Possibly Unique Southern Percussion Revolver By V.G.H. Libeau New Orleans

Lot #375 (Sale Order 90 of 282)

.36 caliber, 4.75" octagonal barrel inlaid in gold "New Orleans." Micro-groove rifling, five-shot, finely checkered bag-shaped grip of highly figured walnut.  This iconic legendary percussion revolver is probably the rarest of all 19th century American percussion revolvers.  It first appeared in Charles Winthrop Sawyer's book Firearms in American History (Vol II, published in 1911).  Illustrated as number 11 on plate 5, and briefly described on page 81, at the time it was in the collection of Frank Sibley of Sommerville, Mass. In 1923, after his death, the Libeau revolver remained with the Sibley family when most of the collection was sold at Walpole Galleries.  Later was sold by family to Howard Greene.  At the NRA show held in New Orleans in 1970, it was purchased by Sam Smith and remained in his collection until his death after which it was purchased by Stan Diefenthal, then to the present consignor.

In the 1842 City Directory of Orleans Parish, V. Libeau is listed as a "gunsmith at 7 Camp Street." The history of the Libeau revolver is the subject of a lengthy article by Samuel E. Smith in the 1971 Texas Arms Annual by the equally legendary R.L. "Larry" Wilson. The Libeau revolver has an octagonal barrel boldly inlaid in large gold letters "NEW ORLEANS" and has a silver front sight. On the left flat is a uniquely designed attached loading lever and under the barrel is a heavy solid silver fore-end framing the wedge.

The 5-shot cylinder is equally unique, the chambers with engraved numbers 1 through five and curving screwed in nipples. The hammer features an elongated nozzle specifically designed to strike the offset nipples. The convex lockplate is shaped and masterfully engraved "V.G.W. Libeau New Orleans 1847." The lockplate has a saw-tooth border. The sideplate is a virtual copy of the lockplate, but without a hammer. The figured walnut butt is as finely checkered as an English dueling pistol and is inlaid with a silver thumbpiece and script owner's initials "S.B.B." The mechanism is much like a Colt Paterson as cocking the hammer indexes the cylinder and drops the folding trigger. The condition of the barrel is fine with strong traces of original bright blue and little wear. The cylinder also has strong traces of original blue finish. The lockplate and frame are smooth metal with very little corrosion or wear, the finish having drifted. The markings are excellent as is the revolving mechanism. 

Provenance:Sibley family, Walpole gallery, Howard Greene, Samuel Smith, Stanley Diefenthal.

Condition: The walnut butt shows wear, but retains considerable original varnish finish. The quality of the Libeau revolver is uniformly excellent rivaling the work of London's best at the same period. The bore is excellent and the revolver shows little use. The Libeau revolver is one of the most important American revolvers and one of the very finest 19th century Southern pistols ever made. It has been prized by the most famous collectors of antique American arms for more than a century and cannot be equaled in rarity by any known percussion American pistol.

Topstrap engraved LONDON ARMOURY JAs KERR & Co 54 KING WILLIAM ST EC. London commercial proof marks on barrel and between the cylinder chambers, but the presence of a *X Liege controllers mark on the barrel reveals the revolver likely originated in the Belgian trade and was simply retailed by Kerr. Thus, although strongly resembling an English Webley-Pryse, it is really a Counet pattern Belgian revolver.

James Kerr was a principle in the London Armoury Company that failed in 1866 after the conclusion of the American Civil War and the loss of their primary client, the southern Confederacy, who also defaulted on a large amount of monies owed to the firm. Later reorganized as London Armoury LTD, Kerr continued to trade on the old name to promote his business. The revolver is contained in an English oak retailer casing with sectionalized compartments, lined in burgundy baize with a 36-hole cartridge storage area, a partition with a cleaning rod and a small partition with a glass oil bottle. The casing includes a James Kerr & Co. paper label inside the lid that again references his involvement with the failed London Armoury Company. Kerr was located at the 54 King William Street address circa 1868-1894 (Stockel).

Condition: Very good. Retains much of of the thinning blue with clear markings and scattered surface oxidation and some light surface roughness. Mechanically functional, fine bore with some scattered oxidation. Grip crisp with some light handling marks. Casing with some interior and exterior wear, about good overall, hinges weak, interior with some repairs. Accessories good to very good.
