• Lot 446: Volcanic lever action repeating pistol SN 770 .41 Cal. with 8" barrel marked THE VOLCANIC REPEATING ARMS CO. PATENT NEW HAVEN, CONN. FEB. 18, 1854. Pistol remains in very good original condition with a pleasing gray to brown patina remaining on barrel and magazine, markings crisp and edges sharp. Brass frame shows an uncleaned deep patina with only light dings and mars as one would expect. Original rear sight, flat bottom varnished walnut grips are very good with unique period carved and inlaid ivory decoration to both sides. A fine untouched Volcanic with good smooth action and nice bore. NO FFL required.
“We invite you to experience the American West in historic Deadwood where the history is as rich and diverse as the miners, pioneers, and fortune seekers who came here more than a century ago,” said Auctioneer Rick Olesen. “Bringing this auction to a global, online audience ensures that anyone fascinated by the American West can participate, even if they can’t make it to the live event.”
Proceeds from the donated Colt and 2% of the buyer’s premium will be donated to the “Days of 76 Museum” fundraising campaign to build a new facility in efforts to preserve the rich history and carriages housed within the current museum.
