For a nearly identical example, see number 93 on page 111 of "The Kentucky Pistol" by Chandler & Whisker. This pistol and the example in the book have the same barrel, form, and furniture. Peter Moll worked in Hellerstown, Pennsylania. This pistol features a thick-walled 2-stage barrel with a brass front sight. The flat lockplate is stamped "LONDON WARRANTED" in the center. Trigger floorplate and trigger are brass, as many other Moll examples of this type have. The brass furniture includes a trigger guard with lug in front of the bow and a long front tang terminating in an arrow finial. Brass washers surround both lock retaining screws. Brass pommel cap and ferrules. Plain maple stock is of distinct Moll form with bird's head grip and has a dark violin finish. Complete with a wooden ramrod. CONDITION: Barrel retains a freckled brown surface. Lock mainspring is not attached and lock is a reconversion. Brass retains a dark unpolished mustard patina. Stock shows some scattered marks and stress cracks from age, retains much original finish. A very nice Lehigh Kentucky pistol. DMG
