One of approximately 2,600 manufactured from 1870 to 1881. The three-line J.M. Marlin address and patent dates is on the right of the barrel and "NEVERMISS" is on top.

Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 75% plus of the original blue finish and strong traces of the original silver plating in sheltered areas with the balance having thinned to a smooth grey patina or attractive antique brass. The grips are very fine with some scattered light handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
