Please click the image for a larger version
Attractive Continental percussion pocket pistol. 4" fancy part octagon, part round barrel, about 8-1/4" overall, about .40 caliber bore. Lock engraved "S.F." in script, otherwise unmarked. Nicely engraved metal parts with medium-dark patina overall and minimal scattered pitting. Buttcap is either german silver or genuine silver. Stock is good, nicely carved around butt, rear of lock, and rear of flat opposite lock. Wire inlaid behind the barrel tang, a couple wires are missing. Wood shows average wear and use overall, has a small chip in the butt, cracked most of the way through behind the lock and around to the triggerguard. Mechanically good but does not appear to have a half cock, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
