For a similar example see page 164 of "British Military Pistols" by Robert Brooker. These pistols were supplied from merchants and not from ordnance, thus they are known as the 1813 Indian Contract pistols. Barrel is marked with a crown over "GR" and a broad arrow, as well as a Tower crossed scepters acceptance stamp. The tang is stamped with a crown. The lock has an unbridled pan, center of lockplate marked "KETLAND/ WALKER/ & Co." with a crown broad arrow acceptance mark. Mountings are brass with a nice mellow appearance. Brass sideplate has a crudely engraved "H". The stock has what appears to be two crown over "21" stamps beside the brass trigger guard. Stock is stamped "W" followed by an indiscernible character behind the sideplate. There is a "GR/ 1800" store keeper's stamp on the stock at the grip behind the lock carving. Ramrod appears to be original. There are "I" and "V" stamps in the ramrod channel. CONDITION: Very good overall. The barrel and lock retain a mottled gray smooth patina. Lock is in its original flintlock configuration. All markings are excellent. The brass mounts have a mellow patina. Stock is very good retaining some of its original dark finish and has usual minor dings as expected. DRG
