French M1854 Lefaucheux Pinfire Revolver

12mm, 6.25" barrel, S/N 35982. Blued finish, two-piece hardwood grips, lanyard ring in butt. Single action, 6-shot pinfire revolver. Lower right of frame with Lefaucheux trademark and serial number, lower left of frame with weak E. LEFAUCHEUX/INV BREVETE in an oval cartouche. This revolver falls within the documented range of known US Civil War purchases of Lefaucheux revolvers that were within the 33,XXX to 42,XXX range.


Very good. Retains some thinning blue, mostly on the frame. Mechanically functional, very good bore with some oxidation. Grips very good with some traces of varnish and scattered bumps and dings. Hinge pin for loaning gate repaired, leaving a visible hole in the upper right rear of the recoil shield, which the original pivot pin would have filled.

Estimate: $800 - $1,200
Price Realized Including Buyer's Premium
