Just 31" overall. with 19 1/4" full octagonal .22 caliber rifled barrel, with smooth brown color. 2 7/8" finely engraved percussion lock, signed in script "D. Walter". Highly figured curly maple stock with moulded cheeckpiece with inlaid eight pointed silver star. Magnificent four piece patchbox, clearly reminiscent of the York school, with six piercings and elaborate delicate engraving. Configured with slender wood strip between the side plates and the lid. Brass pin escutcheons each fastened with two tiny screws. Absolutely perfect condition and a really beautiful little rifle.

    Estimate: $3,500 - $4,500.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
