    SPANISH FLINTLOCK PISTOL - Early example of large bore pirate style sidearm of European manufacture. 12" octagon to round .70 calibre smooth bore barrel stamped on top at breach 1820, 10246 with an 'O' over an 'M.' Left barrel flat stamped 'EX'-'GA'. Miquelet style lock plate is very interesting employing a relatively unique half and full cock system that protrudes from the lock plate to engage an external hammer notch. Fully brass mounted with iron belt hook. Iron lock plate stamped with a large 'P' and the same 'GA' as the barrel. Functioning action with full length wood stock.

    Condition: Wood stock may have been shortened a bit. Brass barrel band an old replacement. Iron ramrod is a replacement.

    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.
