This is a wonderful and extremely rare matching pair of Henry Deringer Belt Pistols. Note,,,, I said Belt Pistols, as these are over 9" long over-all with 5-inch barrels. They are in very fine to extremely fine condition with one retaining 95% of its original striping and the other 85 - 90%. There is only the slightest hint of staining in a few areas that could probably be cleaned to raise their condition to near excellent. There are slight traces of the rare copper streaks within the striping. The wood on both guns is in excellent condition with much of the piano varnish finish wearing thin, with the grips finely checkered. All mounts of German Silver are engraved and the barrels are silver-banded. Both guns have a German silver trap-door compartment to store percussion caps in the butt. I have been told by the old timers that all Henry Deringers had the simulated damascus striping with copper streaked in them that no one has ever been able to duplicate. Also that when one finds a plain browned barrel, chances are it just shows a patinaed finish or has actually been re-browned. I don't know if this is true as I have a motto I go by, and that is "ALL THE EXPERTS ARE DEAD". If you weren't there when it was manufactured, you don't know for certain. What I do know is that the finish on these gun barrels is original and the combination of high finish, mount features and size make this an extremely desirable matched set of Henrys. One of them has some of the original copper streaking showing clear as a bell when you pop off the barrels. These guns are extremely rare and about the size of a 5 or 6-inch Colt Pocket, but thicker and heavier. They are a great set of guns in a rare and unusual size.
