Henry Deringer .45 Caliber Pocket Pistol
Item #: AA3150
This is a .45 caliber percussion pocket derringer made by Henry Deringer of Philadelphia, Pa. circa 1860. This beautiful little pistol measures 6 1/4" overall and has a 3" barrel. The barrel is round with a flat top and has seven groove rifling. The finish on the barrel is the original brownish red simulated Damascus that Deringer used. The breech is octagonal and stamped on the top flat DERINGER/PHILADELa. On the left flat is a P with a sunburst motif. The breech, tang, hammer and lock plate all share the same pewter looking patina. Decorative floral motif's adorn the barrel tang, hammer and lock plate. The lock plate is also stamped DERINGER/PHILADELa. The nose cap, wedge escutcheons, flash plate, trigger guard, shield and butt cap are all German silver with elaborate floral engravings. The trigger guard is engraved and has a pineapple finial. The walnut stock retains it's original varnish finish. The wood is immaculate, having no wood loss or cracks anywhere. The checkered grip shows minimal wear from handling. There was no provison made for a ramrod on this little guy. Whoever owned this one kept it close to his heart, literally! Not sure if this one was carried during the War of Northern Aggression, but it was around back then. If you collect derringer's this will make an excellent addition to your collection.
