Percussion box lock side hammer pistol with folding trigger. 3-1/8" octagon barrel of about .40 caliber bore. No markings present aside from ELG-within-oval proof and serial number 13. Metal parts have attractive twist finish on barrel, nicely engraved frame with medium patina overall and some pitting in the nipple area. Hammer shows a partial crack. Nipple is absent. Fully checkered wood grip shows some chipping around the frame tang and some pieces missing by the frame. Butt has a small shell cap box. Hammer clicks into sear and trigger emerges, but does not have mainspring tension. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
