Antique British Large Bore Flintlock Officer's or Holster Pistol, NVSN, .60 cal., 8-5/8'' barrel without sights marked ''Holborn London'' on triangular top flat ahead of engraved rear tang, with two proofmarks at left breech; beveled-edge lockplate with step-down rear teat is marked ''Parker'' under flint pan; gracefully-shaped flint cock; brass furniture including engraved sideplate, engraved triggerguard with a lovely acorn front and long rear tangs, buttcap with long side extensions, two retaining thimbles for the horn-tipped hardwood ramrod. Varnished European hardwood fullstock has raised carved aprons on either side of lock, a vacant brass plaque atop the wrist, and three barrel retaining pins. Appears to be in original flintlock configuration with all original parts and unbushed touchhole. Condition is very good, the iron surfaces with a mostly smooth age-brown patina and scattered light erosion, the brass cleaned to bright; engraving and markings are mostly clear. Stock is smooth with only minor marks, a 2.5'' crack at right muzzle and two smaller ones below lockplate, but is solid and with pleasing color. Action is strong and sure; smoothbore is clean with a light coat of rust. Est.: $600-$900. (Antique)
