Hulkes Gleanings'' on circumference at muzzle, with border engraving at rear; boxlock brass frame has a unique engraved and elevated ''waterproof'' pan, a frizzen with an equally unique adjustable-tension spring, a sliding safety that locks the frizzen in the down/closed position, and a gracefully-formed reinforced flint cock; frame is marked ''Palmer Rochester'' at front with sunken proof marks at right side, is floral engraved with panel scenes of a panoply of martial flags, drums (or mortars) and shields on left and right sides, and has a folding trigger that automatically drops down when the pistol is cocked; one-piece varnished and checkered European hardwood ''bag-style'' grips.
