U.S. Model 1813 Naval Pistol produced by Simeon North of Middletown, Connecticut. Only 1,626 total of the Model 1813 pistols were produced, with 1000 of these delivered to the U.S. Navy. 9" round barrel in .69 smoothbore complete with "Wickham's Improvement" which is a stud that retains the double strapped barrel band. S. North removable brass flash pan. Belt hook on left side of lock retaining plate that allowed sailors to board an enemy ship without having to hold the pistol in hand. Lock is marked "S. NORTH" / "U" (eagle) "S" / MIDLN CON." Barrel is marked "P" / "US" on left side. Walnut stock is stamped behind the belt hook with "E.T." for inspector Elisha Tobey.

Bore is dark with heavy abrasion. A fine example of a scarce U.S. Martial pistol. TN
