Manufactured from 1870 to 1881. The barrel is chambered for the rare .41 caliber. It is estimated that under 1000 .41 caliber deringers of this type were produced. Silver blade front sight on a barrel marked "NEVER MIS" on the top and "J.M. MARLIN/NEW HAVEN, CT./PAT. APRIL. 5. 1870" on the right side. Blue barrel with silver plated brass. Spur trigger, checkered hammer and fitted with the attractive rarely seen pearl bird head grips. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection
Very good. The barrel has a smooth brown patina with a gray patina on the high edges. There is some pin point pitting. The frame retains 97% of the silver plating with some minor loss of plating around the hammer and fine surface scratches overall. The attractive grips are excellent with some yellow age discoloration and a few light chips on the edges. The right grip has a small ding and a couple of light scratches. The markings are partially worn smooth. Mechanically fine.
