A Flintlock Officers Pistol by Sharp of York, Circa 1770, in unusually fine and untouched condition.
Mechanically excellent, holding firm on half and full cock. Steel furniture to the walnut stock, clear proof marks to the left hand side of the barrel. Maker marked to the lock, and top of the barrel.
Barrel length 7.5 inches.
I have been unable to find any information about Sharp of York, but they were obviously a maker of some skill.
A scarce pistol, in excellent condition, which may have been carried during the American Revolutionary War.
Strictly over 18's only. Photo ID will be required before this item can be dispatched.
