ITEM DESCRIPTION

Belgian Double Barrel Percussion Boot Pistol, .41 Caliber, 2 3/4" Round Barrels, Circa Mid 1800's.  Has Belgian proof stamp on left side of frame near the left barrel, and is numbered 55 on the underside of the frame just in front of the trigger guard.  Left and right sides of the frame are engraved with open scrollwork, and the trigger guard has some engraved embellishment as well.  Barrels are rifled, and are the screw off type but they are frozen in place.  All metal finish is evenly grayed to a nice and pleasing patina, with no rust but there are 2 small gouges on the top of the left barrel and 3 small gouges on the underside of the left barrel which look like someone tried to unscrew the barrel at some point in time with a tool of some sort.  The gouges are evenly patinaed matching the rest of the pistol.  Wood grip still retains about 80% of its original finish, and there are some light dings from use as would be expected.  Lock mechanism for both hammers is tight and solid and functions perfectly, and the springs for both hammers still strong.  Hammers located on the top of the frame.  Double triggers, one for each barrel.  The nipples show a lot of use and the left nipple is battered down somewhat.  Overall a very decent period pistol that will enhance any collection.  Condition Very Good.
