  • .44 Caliber, 1⅝” barrel with a very good-fine bore which shows some oxidation. The barrel is a very nice plum brown patina with random pattern bronzing, featuring only a brass stud blade front sight. The breech features a rounded bolster and is without the inlays; however, this  is appropriately Derringer. Sunburst “P” marked with light engraving on the tang, both showing a mottled blue-gray case-hardened patina. The lock plate is appropriately marked as well and shows loose open flowing scroll and a somewhat flat hammer without the later offset, hammer and lock plate showing some lovely fading color case-hardening.

The German silver engraved trigger guard bow, pineapple front extension, cap splash guard, flourish side plate, wedge escutcheons and shield shaped monogram plate are all neatly engraved with light engraving on the teardrop and none on the triangle nose cap inlay. The stock rates very fine with a tiny bit of added finish, but with crisp checkering. The lock is crisp and mechanically functional. A very nice variation in a very fine state of condition

  • Wurflein Peanut Derringer. 
.40 Caliber, 1¼” barrel with a very good lightly oxidized bore. The cast steel barrel is a pleasing plum brown and a light pewter patina shows a nice mottled original finish with some sparse smatterings of light oxidation and perhaps a few very light pinprick pits. The top of the barrel is appropriately maker marked atop the breech with wavy “Sunburst” style marking on the left diagonal flat with dual inlaid silver bands. The tang and the lockplate are lightly engraved and are mottled case-hardened pewter patina with “A. Wurfflein/Phila” lockplate marking; the hammer has turned to a soft brown. 

The German silver furniture features a very nicely engraved trigger guard bow and pineapple trigger plate extension, the balance is smooth and unadorned consisting of: oval barrel wedge, escutcheons, flash plate beneath bolster, triangle tip inlay, teardrop butt inlay, flowing side plate and shield-shaped monogram plate atop the wrist. The side plate has Wurfflein’s signature second screw installed at its rear. The stock rates very good plus to excellent with much original varnish. The expected light handling marks from the years but with crisp checkering and edges, and extremely minor flaking or abrasion in the area just to the right of the trigger. The overall length is 4⅞”. The lock is crisp and mechanically functional. A very fine example of these quality-made Philadelphia pocket pistol.

The shield-shaped monogram plate atop the wrist shows only light borderline engraving and the teardrop inlay at the butt shows an iron hinged nipple or percussion cap recess; there is an unadorned triangle plate at the nose cap. The walnut stock rates very good showing perhaps an old very light cleaning and bit of added finish, but the checkering remains strong, shows only very light wear.
