silver mountings. The center of the lock shows fancy cypher or letters E or L with fancy X 3 and the barrel is marked in gold damascened letters “Cannon A Tordu”. The pistol measures 14 5/8” overall with 8 ½” barrels of .62 caliber smoothbore. The pistol remains in very good plus original condition showing 60%-80% original blue on the barrels going to patina and dulling slightly with 90% plus fancy gold damascened decoration. The locks and small parts are completely original with uncleaned brown patina showing smooth natural surface. The stock is very good plus also with minor aging and slight wear at the high points of carving located at wrist and fore end. The ornate silver mounts are well defined and not “Rubbed” out. There is a ultra-small French silver hallmark on the right stirrup to butt cap. Gold touch holes with original ramrod. A superior example of a double flintlock pistol. (Antique) Est.: $3,500-$5,000.
