Original British Flintlock Long Sea Service Pistol Marked- H.M.S. Leander- Circa 1790
Original Item: Only One Item Available. HMS LEANDER was a 52 gun 4th Rate Man-o-War launched in 1780 but that was captured in 1798 by the French ship GENEREUX that was then, in turn, captured by the Russians in 1799 and the vessel was returned to the Royal Navy. Her name was changed in 1813 to H.M.S. HYGEIA and she was finally sold from service on April 4th, 1817.
This Sea Service Flintlock Pistol is perfectly standard and dates to the period. The lock bears a Crown over "G.R." and is marked "TOWER" across the tail. The furniture is all brass and the iron belt hook is still in place.
The 12-inch barrel is faintly marked - H.M.S. LEANDER - and also bears correct British proof markings. The wood stock is tight and clean with multiple additional acceptance marks that can be seen under the years of wax and varnish type finish making this lovely to behold
