Description:

One of less than 1,400 Vest Pocket Derringers manufactured from 1911-1915. The model was also known as the Parrot Beak. The derringer has standard two-line H&A barrel legend, scroll flourishes and zig zag line border engraving, and a pair of pearl grips with "HA" monogram medallions. Double action only operation and serrated folding trigger.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 95% plus of the original nickel finish with a couple small patches of very light pitting on the right near the muzzle and a few scattered light handling marks. The grips are very fine with a minor chip in the right panel and otherwise minimal handling evidence. Mechanically excellent.
