Identifying and market value
« on: December 24, 2018, 05:16:39 PM »
Good day,

I have 2 weapons that I need a bit more information on if anyone can assist me I would appreciate it. Market value and discriptions if possible

The first one is a knife pistol nut the firing pin and tweezers are missing.

On the second pistol I am struggling it is only marked Reynolds and I can not find anything on the internet.

Kind regards,

The knife pistol is an "UNWIN & RODGERS - Sheffield, England" piece. They made them both in percussion and cartridge form.

The flintlock pistol was PROBABLY made by Thomas Reynolds who had the address  in "London & Birmingham" from 1812-1825 and then "London" from !825-1932 according to the listing in Gardner's book

Others may help with an approximate value, but it is VERY subject to condition
