In our 30 years in the business, this is the first one of these that we have been able to offer. This is a New Orleans agent marked Allen's Patent pepperbox revolver. These revolver were designed with the thought of the barrels revolving instead of just using a revolving cylinder. This gun measures 6-1/2 inches in overall length with the barrels making up 3-1/2 of those inches. The barrel cluster fires 6 shots of .31 caliber size. The barrel has the flutes ribs between the chambers.Along the top of the bar style hammer it has the "ALLEN'S PATENT" marking that lets us know that it was made under the patent of Ethan Allen patent and these are the style that are often marked with Allen & Thurber and Norwich, Connecticut. Many of these pepperbox revolvers were made but as Flayderman's Guide states, the ones with this marking on the side of the hammer is "... considered quite scarce." It has the agent marking of the famous New Orleans, Louisiana firm of Hyde & Goodrich. This well-known Crescent City retailer went into business as early as 1816.They sold all types of high end materials until the business was dissolved in July of 1861. They are best known for their backmarks showing up on Southern used Civil War buttons including those from Texas, Mississippi and of course Louisiana. They also sold swords and high-end weapons. Their retailer markings show up on Deringer pistols and imported guns as well. In factory die-stamped letters it reads "HYDE & GOODRICH" over the location of "NEW ORLEANS". The double action mechanics of the revolver still function quite well. The gun has a very dark, almost black color all over. The handle of the gun has the 2-piece walnut wood grips and they still have the slender silver oval inlays on each side. This is a very cool little gun from one of the most famous of all New Orleans retailers.
