Kunz 090621-5 (Matched Set)

Superb set of pistols, great finish, perhaps a little earlier work than some Kunz pistols we see. Great butt cap with extended finial running  back up the grip, and side plate with the elaborate shaping and engraging to match.

Wow!  May be one of the finest pieces in the museum. Not having a clear shot of the side plate and butt cap are a little disappointing. I doubt the screw retention of the forward T.G. tang. Not even spaced the same. A desecration, but it detracts little.
