SERIAL NUMBER 2 REMINGTON MODEL 51 SEMI AUTOMATIC PISTOL
Item # R1153
Undoubtedly the lowest serial number known in private hands. Originally in Robert Peterson's collection for a length of time. Approximately 50 years ago he gave it to a good friend of his who happened to be Keith Coulter. He had it in his collection for about 45-50 years I understand. This is the first time it has been offered for public sale. It is a 380 cal. Overall gun is in surprisingly fine condition with about 95% original blue with light traces of high point wear on the corners. Completely unaltered. Excellent condition throughout. It has early features that didn't come on later guns. Rare opportunity to purchase a low serial number Remington. Remington did not make many of these and to have serial #2 would be a great plus for ANY collection, especially a Remington collection.
Modern $ 12,500.

THE FINEST DOUBLE CASED SET OF REMINGTON NEW MODEL ARMY PERCUSSION ENGRAVED PISTOLS IN EXISTENCE
Item # R7777-17-577
This set comes from my own personal collection. Both guns are very elaborately engraved with some of the most spectacular engraving I have ever seen on a Remington. Coverage is at least 95% of all metal. Both guns are fitted with relief carved Goddess of Liberty ivory grips of which bear the writing Ribus Unum" on the bottom. The guns are fitted to an absolutely spectacular French style original Remington casing in excellent condition with a slightly faded red velour lining. The exterior is Mahogany with a presentation plaque on top. Just a few very minor dings and mars. Also accompanying the set is a correct brass flask, two casting molds, an L shaped nipple wrench and a box of percussion caps. Condition of the guns is Excellent+ with a considerable amount of original silver finish and gold gilding which is toning slightly. Still crisp and sharp metal with excellent markings. All engraving is very legible. The guns were made as a pair most likely for presentation reasons. The serial numbers are 5 and 226. These guns were alleged to have been presented to General Richard I Dodge. They are pictured in Charley Worman's Firearms of the American West book; manufactured approximately 1863. Absolutely an outstanding pair of guns and probably the finest double cased set of Remingtons known!

SERIAL NUMBER 7 REMINGTON HEPBURN DOUBLE BARREL M SHOTGUN
Item # R1083-22-327
I believe this to be an experimental or prototype. I have never seen or heard of another one like it. Marked on the watertable is simply "L L Hepburn December 18th 1883". Original 32" bbls with excellent pattern of Damascus retained on the outside. Shiny bores. I believe the buttstock is a replacement or a heavily sanded original. It is not undersized but the checkering is gone. Forearm is in fine condition with nice checkering. Case colored receiver is clean, sharp and in excellent condition with 30-40% original case colors showing. Very interesting, good looking gun. Very similar to the Hepburn single shot rifle with the breach opening lever on the side.

Mostly a medium brown patina gun with a little bit of blue in protected areas, action is good, bore is VG.
