    Exceptional Condition P1858 .577 Caliber Percussion Enfield Sergeant's Carbine John Dickson & Son Edinburgh 1861. 33" barrel with smooth plum color and traces of original blue, really exceptional. Bore about perfect. Correct original sights, original chained nipple protector. Lock with hand engraved markings including scroll decoration, retains traces of case colors. Smooth gray iron trigger guard with line and scroll engraving, flower petals engraved on the screw heads, along with decorative engraving on the butt plate tang. English walnut stock about perfect, retaining 80% of the original varnish. Overall the gun is exceptionally sharp and crisp showing virtually no signs of use and complete and original in every respect, totally untouched. A truly exceptional example of this rather scarce pattern Enfield and very desirable with this early war date.

    Estimate: $4,000 - $6,000.
