For an identical example, see number 98 on pages 206-207 of "Historic Pistols" by Samuel E. Smith and Edwin W. Bitter. This pistol has an unmarked round barrel with a small brass front sight and a dished iron rear sight mounted on tang. Flat lockplate with rounded tail section, center stamped "J.J. HENRY / BOULTON". Lock has a brass pan and a reinforced cock. Standard Model 1826 iron furniture, all with a browned finish. Iron swivel type ramrod with button plunger. Plain walnut stock. Henry factory records show that this type of pistol was not made until 1835 or 1836 by John Joseph Henry. These pistols all have very pronounced downward curving grips. CONDITION: Very good overall, retaining about 70-80% of the original brown finish with some fading and darker, heavier patina. The lock is in its original flintlock configuration and retains a dark grey patina with excellent markings. There is some corrosion around the touch hole. Stock very good with a few scattered marks.
