|SALE PENDING Possibly George Grandstaff, Shenadoah Co, VA |
This long slender rifle has seen lots of use during its period of activity giving it an appealing patina. The surfaces, architecture, and curly maple are quite pleasing. It suffered damage to the fore end cap which was replaced in period with a long brass fore end cap...a neat old repair. A perfect reconversion on the original lock was done by the restorer who also replaced some minor losses along the fore stock. Email me for more pictures. SALE PENDING

|Bill Pritchard CLF Auction Rifle|
The auction rifle Bill Pritchard created combines characteristics of two closely related longrifles featured in Bill Ivey’s book, Schools of North Carolina Longrifles, number 44 and rifle number 32. Both rifles are from the Deep River School and associated with Alexander Frazier the earlier. With the 42 inch swamped Rice barrel in 45 caliber, and 13 1/2 inch length of pull, this is a fine handling, beautiful contemporary rifle with early Randolph County, North Carolina architecture. As always, the price is just a placeholder

|Lehigh Liberty Lady Pin|
Mystery has long shrouded the carved and inlayed figures found on arms built in the Lehigh Valley region and occasionally eastern Berks county. Is it a woman with a hat? A Native American figure? Chief Tamany?
The "Liberty Lady" was often found carved into the stock just ahead of the triggerguard. It was also occasionally engraved on patchboxes or found as a silver or brass inlay in place of carving.
This design was modeled referencing two different inlays on original Lehigh Valley rifles by Herman Rupp. This pin is produced in pewter, with a tumbled finish, made 100% in the USA by a small environmentally responsible company. Each pin is individually packaged and displayed on an attractive figured maple background. Dimensions are 1 1/4" x 5/8".
Introductory price per pin is $10 plus $4 shipping in a padded envelope. Pins can also be purchased in person at shows and demonstrations. See my schedule of events on the Contact page. Please email me to place an order. Thank you! http://www.neahkahnieflintlocks.com/lehigh-liberty-lady.html
