According to the hobbies most knowledgeable Deringer expert, Mr. L.D. Eberhart, this pair of 2nd type Henry Deringers circa 1830-31 are the only known matched pairs. They are housed in a refurbished period casing and lined in red velvet. They were made by H. Deringer of Philadelphia. They bear the second type address with small oval escutcheons, a fore-end cap and monogram shield, all in silver. The pineapple fennel is stylized. Each is stamped Deringer Phila. on lock and barrel. Both are percussion with a 3 1/2" barrel in .46 rifled bore. Both have hand checkered walnut bag type handles. Finely engraved on barrel breech, tang, lock, hammer and nipple base. Both have brass tipped hickory rod intact. All metal is a fine, clean gray patina. Bores are sharp. They are cased in a refurbished period casing and come with a period powder flask, two ebony turn screws, bullet mold, cap tin and two wooden tampers. If Mr. Eberhart states this is the only known such set, then you know it is a one of a kind, wonderful and extremely rare set. PROVENANCE: Purchased from the personal collection of Doug Eberhart.
