    Description

    Kerr London Revolver .44 caliber, five shot cylinder, serial number 4187. A curious feature of many Kerr Revolvers (and some Enfield rifles) is the "JS / Anchor" marking on the grips just below the frame tang. Much speculation has been made over the reason for this mark, but debate still continues. This revolver does indeed bear the "JS / Anchor" mark as well as "KERR'S PATENT" with the serial number on the right side of the frame, "LONDON / ARMOURY" stamped in a small oval on the left side of the frame, "LONDON ARMOURY CO." on the rear sidelock, the serial number on the cylinder and "L.A.C" on the barrel. Other markings including proofmarkings on the barrel, proofmarkings on the cylinder between the nipples and the assembly number 28(4?) on the front of the cylinder. Mechanically fine this pistol retains approximately 80% of the original blue with the balance turning plum. The walnut grips are in very good condition with some wear and dents.

    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.
