This pistol is truly "fresh to the market" and the number has not been previously listed in "Harpers Ferry Arsenal and Joseph Perkin" by Rick Hudak. This model is considered among the most beautiful and aesthetically pleasing of American martial pistols. The prestigious American Society of Arms Collectors chose this gun in profile as their logo. These guns were made in pairs between 1806 and 1808 with a total production of about 4,000 guns with each gun of a pair having same serial number. This gun is in the normal configuration of other guns in this pattern with 10" round barrel, breech marked with raised eagle over “P” in a sunken oval behind a raised “US” in a sunken oval behind stamped pair number "913". Lock is marked “HARPERS/FERRY/1807” in vertical arcs behind cock. Under the pan is a spread-winged eagle facing toward the cock over “US”. The partially figured stock is marked opposite the lock with script inspector initials “V” over “JS” for inspector James Stubblefield. Wooden ramrod is a replacement. CONDITION: Good condition overall, gray metal with scattered dark areas, freckling and heavy patina. Lock is a very good professional reconversion. Brass mounts have unpolished mustard patina. Markings on lock and barrel are well struck and all discernible as noted and can be seen in photos. Stock is sound and solid with good discernible inspector marks opposite. One minor sliver replaced below tail of lockplate. A very nice well-marked example with a pleasing "as found" appearance. DMG
