Lot # 7 (Sale Order: 7 of 703)

serial #99896, 32 ACP, 3 3/4" barrel with a bright near excellent bore showing a little frosting throughout. The metal surfaces of this gorgeous pistol retain about 96% original bright blue with some high edge wear, some scattered scratches, freckles and gripstraps just starting to thin to gray.

The grips are factory mother-of-pearl with gold Rampant Colt medallions and remain in near excellent condition with a few minor handling marks, a tiny chip near the safety on the left panel and the backing material on the right panel has detached from the grip. This could no doubt be easily repaired and does not detract from the appearance of this fine pistol. Included is one blue-bodied magazine in near excellent condition. The pistol also includes a Colt factory letter that indicates it was shipped with blue finish, engraved and with pearl grips on May 21, 1910 to none other than the Browning Bros. of Ogden, Utah and was the only gun in the shipment.

Early and Rare Parker Small Bore Underlifter Double Hammergun

Early and Rare Parker Small Bore Underlifter Double Hammergun

Lot # 16 (Sale Order: 16 of 703)

serial #5410, 20 ga., 27 5/8" damascus barrels with bores that show some areas of pitting. This shotgun is listed in the Parker Pages as the earliest surviving 20 gauge Parker, however there is one other 20 bore listed that is a lower number #4634. The gun has all matching numbers and the barrels are still touching at the muzzle so we feel comfortable that they were only shortened from 28". This is a "field" grade gun with no engraving other than the makers name on locks and the barrel inscription which reads from action to muzzle "PARKER BROS. "MAKERS" MERIDEN "STUB TWIST". The shotgun features a key fastened forend with the decorative raised bead at the front of the steel forend tip along with a round knob pistolgrip and smooth steel shotgun buttplate. The barrels show strong twist pattern their entire length and appear to have been very nicely re-browned at some point over the years. The action and locks show a mix of silver faded case-hardening and an even gray patina. The metal remains smooth and is free of pitting. The stock and forend are of nicely figured walnut, were never checkered and rate very good with old wear and some light added finish present. The wood has a very nice and honest appearance. The shotgun comes with a set of non-Parker fluid steel barrels which have been fit to the gun and the gun and extra barrels come together in a nicely made partitioned walnut case with cleaning rod and other cleaning implements. A rare and very early small bore Parker lifter made before L.C. Smith & Ansley Fox had even set up their shops. (18321-5) {ANTIQUE}

Lot # 22 (Sale Order: 22 of 703)

serial #1409, .44 American, 8" ribbed round barrel with a very good bore which shows strong rifling but with scattered light pitting its full length. The metal surfaces on this fine early martial Smith & Wesson retain about 98-99% excellent quality factory re-nickel, the loss being a few very sparsely scattered spots of extremely light flaking or bubbling. The bottom of butt indeed has the factory "(star)" marking and the inside of the grip frame shows two refinish dates, the first in 1914, the second in 1924.

The smooth walnut grips rate very good with a faint left-side cartouche, their fit is slightly "under" and they are numbered to gun "2012" (which was indeed a nickel U.S. First American as well). The "U.S." atop the barrel is still visible albeit somewhat faint, the left side "A" inspector's marking has been lost atop the top strap but a ghost can be seen in the proper location on frame, and the right side "P" marking is faint and partial on the barrel but has been lost to the refinishes at the rear of recoil shield. As-mentioned, this example has the early oil hole on the underside of the extractor housing lug. This arm is listed by serial number in Smith & Wesson American Model
