These late "Type I" or "Model No. 2" derringers were manufactured from 1870 to 1888, and were the last of the Remington derringers to be sequentially numbered. The top of the barrel rib is marked in two lines, "E. REMINGTON & SONS. ILION.N.Y./ELLIOT'S PATENT DEC. 12th 1865" and the matching serial number is on the left of the grip frame and bottom of the lower barrel. Blade front sight and notch rear sight on hinged tip-up barrel with manual extractor. Smooth spur trigger and checkered hammer with mobile firing pin. The grips are smooth hardwood. Includes a very uniquely figured custom hardwood case and an assortment of .41 RF cartridges. Provenance: The Mel Raucher Collection
Very fine, retains 90% plus of the original nickel with some scattered light edge flaking and a few minor dings in the bottom of the lower barrel. The grips are fine with some scattered minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent. The case is very fine with minimal handling/storage wear.
