This is a very fine displaying Civil War era .30 caliber cup-fire revolver. These pistols were designed to fire the Plant patent cartridges. These cartridges were designed to get around the Rollin White patent held by Smith & Wesson. The cartridge fired when struck on the side of the cupped rim of the brass cartridge. The pistol loaded from the front of the cylinder. The frame of the pistol is made of brass. This is one of the ones that were nickel plated and it has the majority of the plating remaining. The 3 inch barrel is full length with a nice look. On the top side of the barrel is the mark of "MERWIN & BRAY FIREARMS CO. N.Y.". Eagle Arms Company was the actual manufacturers of the Plant patent revolvers. The action works well on all positions. The ejector rod is present and fully functional. The serial numbers are all matching at 804. The ejector rod is missing from the side of the frame. These Plant revolvers were one of the most distinctive designed weapons of the Civil War.
