Marked on barrel flats "SPRAGUE& MARSTON/NEW YORK" and "WARRANTED/CAST STEEL" with serial number 38 on bottom of barrel. 4" part octagon, part round barrel of about .32 caliber bore, about 8" overall. Metal parts have medium patina overall, showing relatively little use, but has some patchy old rust on the barrel.
