TO ENSIGN FREDERICK FURBUSH, USN WITH HOLSTER. Cal. 32, S# 18661. This revolver is standard early 1864 manufactured S&W No. 2 army revolver, 6" barrel. Mr. Bricker in his files, states there was a Navy officer sword that originally came with this revolver both attributed to Furbush. The accompanying holster has a naval button as a finial. Based on S#, this could not be Acting Ensign Furbush's pistol, as he died aboard the USS Tennessee in 1863, prior to pistols manufacture. UNATTACHED ACCESSORIES: file of research and service records. CONDITION: good overall, all matching, gray metal, good markings, rosewood grips are sound with moderate edge wear. Mechanically fine, good rifled bore. Accompanying holster fits revolver loosely. PROVENANCE: Lifelong collection of Robert "Mike" Bricker. (01-24951/JS). ANTIQUE. $700-900.
