For a similar example see page 164 of "British Military Pistols" by Robert Brooker. These were supplied from merchants and not from ordnance, thus they are often called the 1813 Indian Contract pistols. Barrel is marked with a crown over "GR" and broad arrow, as well as a Tower crossed scepters acceptance stamp. The tang is stamped with a crown "14". The lock has an unbridled pan and is marked "WHATLEY" with a crown broad arrow acceptance mark. Mountings are brass. There is a faint store keeper's stamp on the wrist behind the lock carving. In front of the trigger guard someone has carved a "BP". Behind the sideplate someone has lightly carved the letters "W P" followed by what appears to be "1811" or "1816". Ramrod is a replacement. CONDITION: The barrel and the lock retain a smooth gray patina. Markings are relatively crisp and legible. Brass mounts retain a somewhat glossy patina. Stock bears a 1 1/2" chip of wood missing at the muzzle end of the barrel, but otherwise wood is in good condition with minor abrasions. DRG
