    Description

    C. 1780 Brass Mounted British Flintlock Holster Pistol. 13" overall, 8" round, brass, .58 caliber smoothbore barrel, with two proofs. Open side plate, grotesque mask butt cap, unengraved brass wrist escutcheon, intact silver wire inlay around the barrel tang. Bone or ivory tipped ramrod. Round convex surface iron lock marked "Turner" with decorative engraving at rear. The walnut stock shows some small areas of restoration but well done, lock and hammer, along with the end of the barrel tang exhibit some light pitting. Still a very attractive British pistol, and again, possibly of the period of the American Revolution.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
