Can anyone identify this Sharps Pepper Box / Sharps 4 Barrel Derringer?
Markings, Left side of frame: "C. SHARPS PATENT 1859" text inscribed in a circle.
Markings: Right side of Frame: "C. SHARPS & CO. PHILADA, PA" text inscribed in a circle.
I believe that...
A couple years ago I uncovered what I believe to be an old derringer while metal detecting in northern Illinois. To this date no one has been able to tell me any information about it. Any information would be much appreciated!
I have a Derringer pistol in my possession that I am putting in a shadow box for my father in law. He would like it if I could find out more identifying information about it so I can make a nice plaque with the name and such for the box. Help!!! It has the circle with ELG* in it which I saw...
