Allen & Wheelock single shot center hammer 22 caliber derringer. Early variation with full octagon barrel and rounded frame, Flayderman 5A-086. Serial number 406 or 496. Marking "ALLEN & WHEELOCK" on left side of barrel, somewhat poorly struck. Metal parts are a light gray with light granular pitting. Wood grips are very good, may have been lightly refinished, free of cracks, has one minuscule corner nick. Half cock functions, but doesn't quite hold at full. Will hold if trigger is held forward, possibly a wear sear spring. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
