This pistol is known by collectors as the best existing example of an 1808 North Navy. Only 3,000 of these pistols were made by Simeon North between 1808 and 1810. They feature a steel belt hook for naval use. Round steel smoothbore barrel is unmarked, which is correct for this model. Flat lockplate stamped with large eagle over "U. STATES" in center, tail stamped "S. NORTH/BERLIN/CON." vertically, brass pan and reinforced cock. All screws are marked with small inspection marks. Standard brass Model 1808 furniture. Full length walnut stock and original wooden ramrod. CONDITION: This pistol is in excellent condition with crisp markings overall. It has dark, untouched, as found patina throughout. Lock is in its original flintlock configuration. Belt hook has a corroded, dark patina. Brass retains a dark, completely unpolished patina. Stock retains a dark surface with sharp edges showing very little use, one minor crack above lockplate tail. This is a particularly nice example of the earliest naval pistol used by the United States. DMG
