Deringer Pistol by Henry Deringer, Agent: W.H. Calhoun, Nashville, Tennessee 
Extremely Rare Agent Mark
Calhoun sold pistols and fancy goods in Nashville, circa 1847 to 1880, right facing

Walnut stock, checkering within line engraved borders, all metal is pewter gray, the 2.5-inche barrel
[3-inches with breech] shows scattered yet smooth and light pitting; action is tight and smooth.
The breach displays the legend assigned to the 1835-1837 period [and sometimes later]; DERINGER
above PHILADEL’A, also the “P” and sunburst marks are found on the breech. The barrel flat also
marked [indiscernible] FOR over W.H. Calhoun over AGENT over NASHVILLE TENN. All silver
furniture…buttcap, forend cap, barrel key escutcheons; vacant shield shape thumbpiece and the engraved
trigger guard with pineapple finial and long tang. There are minor unobtrusive imperfections consistent with age
and use; a few tight fissures have been attended to; minor wood fill that did not notice until very close
inspection…nonetheless, a very nice example with great history.
Overall length: 6.75”, barrel including breech: 3”.
