    Description

    Tranter Patent Pocket Size .36 Caliber Double Action Percussion Revolver In Original Presentation Casing With Accessories. Rosewood casing 12.375" x 7.5" x 2.25" high with green wool lining. Brass presentation plaque inlaid on the top center of the lid. Heavily worn and difficult to discern the names but the date "May 10, 1861" is clearly visible. These English made revolvers found much favor with Confederate officers and many were run through the blockade although this example doubtless arrived prior to the outbreak of hostilities. An attractive Civil War period cased set with the added interest of the potentially researchable inscription and a presentation date very close to the beginning of the war.

    Condition: Rosewood case with some minor scratches and dents but excellent and very sound. Inlaid brass keyhole escutcheon. The 4 3/8" barrel double action revolver retains traces of the original blue, the balance clean smooth and bright, the balance of the blue apparently has simply flaked off. Five shot with each chamber numbered. Hand engraved "Patent 2325" on top and "Bentley Liverpool" on the top of the frame. Hand engraved line decoration along edges. Mechanically perfect, multi grooved rifled bore excellent. Ingenious loading lever catch. Checkered wooden grip also excellent. Cased with pistol size copper flask, single cavity brass conical bullet mould marked "80" on top of iron sprue cutter, wooden handled screw driver, rosewood cleaning rod with brass tip, oiler, and japanned tin of "Eley Bro. London" percussion caps. Ivory knob on the lid of the bullet compartment.
