For a signed nearly identical Halbach pistol, see number 51 on page 60 of "The Kentucky Pistol" by Chandler & Whisker. The round tapered barrel is engraved with floral designs and a sunburst around the front sight. Originally the barrel was probably blued and gilded. The flat lock has beveled edges and is unmarked. It also features a waterproof pan. The brass mounts are of familiar Halbach style. The sideplate is engraved and shows French influence. The pommel cap has a relief chased and engraved patriotic American eagle with a shield on its breast surrounded by thirteen stars above its head. The brass trigger guard terminates in an acorn finial and is engraved en suite. The plain walnut stock has relief carved panels terminating in teardrops around the lock and sideplate. Around the barrel tang is a relief apron with Halbach's signature shell design in relief. Tip of stock features a horn nose cap which has been replaced. CONDITION: Barrel retains a gray patina and shows scattered freckling and wear. Lock retains a dark brown patina and is in its original flintlock configuration; functions properly. The top jaw and top jaw screw are modern replacements. Brass mounts show some wear and retain a pleasing mustard patina. Stock shows scattered bruising and minor age cracks and marks from use. There is a crack stemming from the tail of the lock towards the trigger. A nice honest unsigned Halbach pistol. DMG
