Round, plain, smoothbore 12" long barrel of 0.58 caliber bore, with centered Ordnance view and proof marks near breech and crown on tang; a plain, flat, beveled lock with plain, flat, reinforced cock, and unbridled pan, with ‘crown/GR’ before cock and inspection stamp under pan, with ‘TOWER’ across the tail; figured walnut, fullstock with regulation brass mountings of butt-cap, trigger guard, sideplate (iron belt hook attached to sideplate at rear screw) and ramrod pipe, with later brass-tipped ramrod. Setup marks inside ramrod channel (“XXXV”?) and two indistinct touchmarks stamped in wood behind sideplate, and “crown/7” inspection stamp on right side of butt above tail of trigger guard; the serifed block letters “DM / N” are deeply incised crosswise on the raised “beavertail” apron behind the tang, with further lettering “RMTC” carved crosswise just below the apron. A very nice specimen of Revolutionary War naval pistol pattern that is becoming increasingly difficult to locate by collectors. CONDITION: Lock in good, working order and all iron parts with pleasing, dark ‘attic’ patina; stock with random dings and marks associated with period usage, with an expertly-done, small replacement of wood loss to the right side of the forestock, just before the ramrod pipe.
