Description:

Manufactured as the first prototype of what would become the Iver Johnson Pony. The slide has fixed blade front and notch rear sights with Iver Johnson address on the left and "CAL. 380" on the right. The frame is merely marked on the right with the serial number "001". This pistol was on display at the NRA National Sporting Arms Museum from 2013 to 2022 and is featured in "Guns of the NRA National Sporting Arms Museum" on page 202. Provenance: The Supica Collection

Rating Definition:

Very good, retaining traces original blue finish concentrated on the underside of the slide with a grey and brown patina on the balance. Grips are excellent with limited handling marks. Mechanically needs work as the hammer does not always stay in the half or full cock positions. This prototype would be at home in any American semi-automatic pistol collection
