Two Bigelow alarm guns, 2 7/8 inches overall. The only marking on either piece is "PAT.APR.10.1860". Produced by Marlin, the Bigelow was their only percussion offering, and possibly the very first product made by the firm. Includes a small plaque marked with the proceeding information. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Both are good, showing a smooth brown patina and some oxidation. The patent date on one is legible and illegible on the other. Both appear to be mechanically operable.
