Early 1700's flintlock pistols....one a "trade pistol", ornately decorated w/silver inlay and MOP. The other, one carried during the period by the general public. Bottom pistol - 1865 London Police Pocket Pistol - I finally understand why the old Bobbies wore those massive overcoats - it needed a large pocket!! <G>
That looks like one of those black powder and ball units. I have one as well for the inheritance, the are very interesting. It is my understanding that a lot of people who compete in a western like fashion utilize them. I know my terminology is wrong.
