Class: Curio & Relic Handgun
Description:

With no markings and a unique angled slide. The pistol appears to be almost entirely handmade with a smooth unrifled barrel, hand checkered grips, hand checkered cocking piece and a hand checkered trigger. The rounded spur hammer seems to work on a simple leaf spring mechanism and is vibrantly colored from what appears to be a rudimentary heat treating process. A very interesting piece with a "rolling block" style mechanism.

Rating Definition:

Very good with traces of blue finish. The balance has a mottled gray/brown patina with some light spotting and minor pitting. Grips are fair. Mechanically needs adjustment. The leaf spring for the hammer appears broken or detached.
