Top of barrel is stamped "THE VOLCANIC / REPEATING ARMS CO. / PATENT NEW HAVEN CONN FEBRUARY 14TH 1854" Manufactured 1857 to 1862. Matching serial numbers on frame, both sideplates and both walnut grip panels. This example features full octagon barrel. This Navy pistol has the semi-circular cut-out at front of ejector port (page 58 "Volcanic Firearms" by Louis and Rutter), tall fixed rear sight (page 73); pinched front sight (page 73); factory engraving (page 73). All legends are sharp. This beautiful pistol has seen very little use. The sights, rear firing pin, screws retain generous amounts of fire blue. Barrel retains approximately 30% of the bright factory blue. Bottom of lifter and lever retain approximately 30% factory blue. Ample amounts of case colors on hammer and trigger. 40% original plating on frame, especially forward portion. Grips are excellent to near mint with much original varnish. Strong, near mint bore. One of the better examples of a No. 1 pocket pistol extant.
