Only 3,000 of these pistols were made by Simeon North between 1808 and 1810. They feature a steel belt hook for naval use. Round steel smoothbore barrel is unmarked, which is correct for this model. Flat lockplate stamped with large eagle over "U. STATES" in center, tail stamped "S. NORTH/BERLIN/CON." vertically, brass pan and reinforced cock. Standard brass Model 1808 furniture. Full length walnut stock and wooden ramrod. CONDITION: Barrel and lock have been lightly cleaned, now retaining a brown patina with some scattered areas of light pitting. Lock appears to be in its original flintlock configuration with some wear to markings in center. Brass retains a dark mustard patina. Stock retains a dark patina with some marks from use. Foremost barrel pin is absent. Belt hook is a replacement. This is a particularly nice example of the earliest naval pistol used by the United States. DMG
