Manufactured from 1865 to 1888 this No. 3 Vest Pocket Pistol has the two-line address and patent information on the top of the barrel and the matching serial number on the bottom of the barrel and on the left side of the grip frame.

Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 60% plus of the original nickel finish on the barrel and 70% of the original nitre blue on the hammer and breech block with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina. The grips are also fine with some mild wear and light handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
