Confederate South Carolina Palmetto Armory Pistol. Complete 100% original example. Lock marked 'Columbia S.C. 1852' behind hammer and forward 'Palmetto Armory S.C.' surrounding a palmetto tree. Barrel marked Wm. Glaze & Co. with 1853 date and V over palmetto tree proof. The pistol is completely devoid of Federal inspectors marks as it should be.

8 1/2 inch barrel has some pitting forward of barrel band. Lock has grey metal with good markings. Top of armory stamp is somewhat weak from being unevenly struck. Stock is sound with good edges as cleaned and re-varnished. Brass hardware has a nice yellow patina.

Excellent example of this pistol that is hard to find all original and complete.
