combination pin fire revolver with swing-out knuckle duster and 3½" swing-out dirk. The handy gun is called "Apache" after the thugs in Paris, who supposedly carried those. Serial # 3473, caliber 7mm. The cylinder axis can be removed and used as ejector for the shells. All steel brass variation with fluted cylinder. At the beginning the revolver was plated, but it is now worn off. On the knuckles is the maker's stamp crowned ML and the interestingly was sold by retailer's address R. Jones, Liverpool. Because sold in England the knuckle duster received Birmingham proof stamps.
In good working order, but with some pitting "NRA very good" condition. Very rare oddity   $3,250.
