The Remington Cane Gun was designed by John F. Thomas, Remington's master mechanic. The percussion version is limited to the earliest of these arms around 1858-1866. Many of the estimated 500 percussion examples were also converted making original examples especially desirable. It has a period replacement handmade wood-like "L" shaped handle. The metal tip is marked "J.F. THOMAS/PATENT/FEB'Y 9 1858/REMINGTON & SON'S/ILION, N.Y./34". There are no markings by the button trigger. The overall length is 31 1/2 inches.
Fair, showing mostly an attractive antique brown patina with a few minor cracks/chips near the top of the outer shaft and a stabilized crack in the neck of the non-factory period replacement handle. Mechanically untested as the handle portion could not be unscrewed.
