This exact air pistol is pictured and described on page 169 of "Blue Book of Airguns, Thirteenth Edition" in which it states that bottom ball pattern air pistols, like this example, are considered extremely rare. The smoothbore screw barrel is able to be loaded from the breech end with lead ball, measures at approximately .33 caliber/8.5 mm, and has a wrench lug/blade front sight and is marked "LIVERPOOL" on top. Floral scroll engraving on the breech, upper tang, sideplates and hammer. Checkered walnut grip. Provenance: The Dr. Robert D. Beeman Collection
Good with gray and brown patina overall, a few small patches of light pitting, scattered dings on the barrel, and mostly defined engraving. Grip is fine with some light handling marks, a few small nicks at the edges, and defined checkering. Mechanically fine.
