Blade front and notch rear sights, with a pair of German silver bands bordering the breech and "DERINGER/PHILADELa" on top, and a "P" on the upper left. Flourishes of floral scroll engraving are present on the German silver and iron, including the lockplate which is also marked "DERINGER/PHILADEL". There is a blank German silver escutcheon on the wrist.

Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 80% plus of the original brown finish and mostly bright German silver with the balance mostly a smooth grey patina. The wood is very good with a few minor chips and hairline cracks, and moderate flaking of the varnish. Will only hold at full cock if the hammer is rocked back a second time, otherwise mechanically functions fine.
