Ames/Springfield/Mass.'' below the hammer, and ''USN/1845'' vertically at rear; brass furniture includes a single pin-retained barrel band, one-piece trigger guard, and inset circular buttcap; oil-stained one-piece walnut fullstock. Mfg'd 1845, with browned barrel and the balance of the metal finished bright. Condition is very good+. Barrel retains no original finish, but a smooth brownish-gunmetal gray color with sharp markings; brass parts are clean with light age toning. Stock is smooth and solid with pleasing grain and color, lacks the left-side inspector's marking but has a faint ''60'' painted there and a later thin coat of varnish. Action is strong and crisp; smoothbore is bright with cleaned light etching; edges and markings are sharp; the pistol appears completely original. Est.: $800-$1,200. (Antique)
