    Hello,

    I am a new member, and would really love some help with understanding the value of, and possibly selling a collection of antique firearms that I inherited.

    I have:

    Matching Louis Smith kentuky flintlock rifle and pistol

    1816 navy flintlock pistol

    Civil war era percussion cap rifle

    TWO - 1840 continental pinfire double barrel pistols (belgian/ french?)

    If anyone can help me start learning about these pieces, i would really appreciate the help!

    I live in LI new York.

    thanks

    I suggest posting for one gun at a time (the two double barrel pistols together), with good pictures of the right and left sides, lockplates, and either a picture or description of any markings. With many reproductions around, a general description could be of an original antique worth thousands, or a poor quality reproduction worth almost nothing.
