14" overall, 9 3/16", .60 caliber, round brass barrel marked "Philada", as well as "Proved" in a sunken rectangular cartouche. Lock marked "Miles" in a sunken riband. Brass mounts include trigger guard with acorn finial, lightly engraved butt cap, ramrod pipes, unengraved oval wrist escutcheon, and washers under lock screw heads. Original wooden ramrod with horn tip. Dark colored stock, with rich patina, of walnut or cherry. Very nice overall condition. There is an old nicely repaired crack, with no loss, through the wrist at the rear of the trigger guard with a commensurate crack at the rear of the trigger guard. There is also an old irregular hairline that starts under the front of the lock plate and travels under the stock to the rear hammer screw. Also what is possibly another very light hairline, with no loss, on the lower portion of the forestock, all very minor and detract little. A most rare American flintlock holster pistol of secondary martial importance.
