Excerpt

RCUSSION SHOTGUN. L. 46"

Stock cracked and both locks and one nipple gone.

35. PERCUSSION KENTUCKY RIFLE. L. 55"

Inoperative and both sights gone, otherwise good. No marks.

36. "MULE-EAR" DOUBLE SHOTGUN. L. 49"

Superposed barrels. Side action lock. Two ramrods, both original. Working order. 12-bore. Very rare. No marks.

37. OVER-AND-UNDER RIFLE. L. 50-1/2"

One lock, barrels revolving by hand. Mark on lock, "Jos. Golgher, Phila." On plate opposite lock, "I. L. Beck." This rifle was once the property of Imanuel Beck, a noted Sugar Valley hunter, and has probably killed much big game. A rare and historic piece, in the best of condition. (These double rifles with revolving barrels are much rarer than the rigid type.) This gun was not made by Golcher, as he made and furnished to other makers more locks than he made rifles. It was his custom to stamp his name on the barrels of his own guns.

38. WINCHESTER REPEATING RIFLE. 30-in. Barrel.

Model of 1873. .
