The peanut sized Deringer is the scarcest and most desirable size made, measuring just over 4" overall. For a similar example, see page 133, plate 7 of "The Deringer in America Volume I" by R.L. Wilson and L.D. Eberhart. This example has the standard round rifled steel barrel with top flat and small sights, breech marked between silver inlaid bands "DERINGER/PHILADEL" and on the left side "P" with a sunburst around it. Scroll-engraved back action lock stamped "DERINGER/PHILADELA" Engraved German silver furniture and vacant shield-shaped wrist escutcheon. Plain varnished walnut stock of familiar form with checkered panels around grip. Excellent condition, barrel and lock have excellent markings and retain an even light brown patina. Furniture has a mellow patina, back of triggerguard tang stamped ""01". Stock very good with some high edge wear and traces of original varnish, a few light storage marks. A very nice and desirable Deringer in excellent condition. From the G. Thomas Puett Collection.
