The only known luggage cased garniture of English Royal Mail Coach marked flintlocks purchased by our consignor from Norm Flayderman in the 1990s. The set consists of a blunderbuss with a brass barrel by Harding & Son and a brace of 2 matching pistols all showing broad head English proofs and number 328 and 348 engraved on each of the barrels. The blunderbuss is almost 29” overall with a 13 ½” barrel of approximately 1” bore. The muzzle is engraved “For His Majesty’s Royal Mail Coaches” in block letters. The gun is in very good condition with some light cleaning and polishing with a minor old armourer’s type repair to the stock. Well marked and inspected. The pair of pistols measure 15 ¼” overall with 9” brass barrels of approximately .60 caliber. Engraved “For his Majesty’s Royal Mail Coaches” in block letters on the edges of each muzzle. The pistols are in good to very good condition with crisp markings and proofs along with 1834 date. The stocks are good with some darkened stain around the pin holes and keys often seen on British military issue flints
