Less than 1,000 of these small pocket pistols were manufactured in 1861 and 1862. These were the first Remington firearms designed to fire metallic cartridges. Advertisements listed them as "Elliott's Pocket Revolvers." Many have been lost or destroyed leaving few to fill their places in advanced Remington collections. The left side of the frame is stamped with the three-line Elliott's patent dates. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Good. The replated metal surfaces have a bright appearance with pitting under the plating mostly on the barrel cluster and recoil shield. The grips are very good with a tiny repair at the toe (right panel) and some surface chipping and handling marks. Mechanically fine.
