Scarce premium engraved National Arms Co. Moore patent "front loading" pocket revolver. Serial number 22878. While all of these revolvers were engraved standard from the factory, this one has a premium engraved cylinder (standard was plain) with gold embellishment, and fancier than usual barrel engraving with a premium silver finished barrel. Frame and cylinder have a medium patina, silver finish on barrel is mostly bright and near complete with some bubbling near the cylinder, likely from powder flash. Wood grips have good original finish that is flaked on the high points and show some minor handling marks, free of cracks and chips. Hammer cocks, but cylinder does not revolve. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
