BY F.H. CLARK & CO. MEMPHIS. Cal. 41. NSN. The 3-1/4" ovate barrel with the maker's name and address on the breech plug and "P" on the left side is stamped with the agent's name and address on top of the flat. The barrel has a short underrib and attractive, filed decoration at the muzzle. A typical back spring lock with a flat-faced percussion hammer is engraved with a large scroll around "DERINGER" and "PHILADELa". American walnut stock with checkered bird's head grip has German silver mounts. The trigger plate finial is a modification of the type used between 1835 and 1845. Decorative mounts include a sideplate, a teardrop on the butt, a shield on top of the grip, and a flashguard in front of the lock. Stock mounts to barrel with sidebolt through shaped and engraved German silver escutcheons. CONDITION: good. Barrel and lock are mostly a dark gray patina; however, the barrel shows some cleaning, with remaining pitting evident that nearly obscures the agent's name. The stock shows considerable wear and has some chipping at the rear of the lock and a crack behind the forend tip. Bore is dark and pitted. Mechanically good. (01-24312/MGM). ANTIQUE. $2,000-2,750.
