Smith-Rem-VP-112-1.JPG

This is a 1/2 scale Remington Vest Pocket derringer by Larry H. Smith of Florida.  2 1/8" long overall with a 1 11/16" barrel of .107 caliber.  This piece fires the 2mm thick rim rimfire cartridges.  The steel frame and barrel are fire blued.  The top of the barrel is marked "REMINGTONS ILLION, N.Y., PATENT OCT. 1,1861"  Yellow brass pin type front sight.  The serial number, 112, stamped into the bottom of the barrel just ahead of the trigger.  Although the piece was originally fire blued, only about 60% of the original blue remains.  The right side of the frame and the bottom of the barrel show some rust pitting. Nice two piece dark walnut grips with yellow brass escutcheons, and the screw entering from the left side.  Complete with the original Larry Smith walnut hinged top casing with push button latch.  The interior English fit and lined in a olive green felt.  The bottom of the case marked "-L.H.-, SMITH, VP - 112, RF" in four lines.  The LH Smith is very faint, but it is there.  The case exterior is in fine shape just showing some minor handling bruises.  The cloth lining of interior is rust stained in several places.  The cleaning rod and the 2mm rimfire blank cartridges are missing.  Mechanically excellent.  This piece is a victim of Hurricane Katrina.  It was not submerged, but was on a closet shelf in a house that flooded, and was not rescued for several days.  The cloth lining, especially the bottom, got damp, causing the finish loss & rust, the worst of which is on the right or non-showing side.  It would make a good project for someone with the skills to properly restore and refinish it.  No returns or refunds.  Priced accordingly.

LH-Smith-Rem-VP-24-1.JPG

This is a 1/2 scale Remington Vest Pocket derringer by Larry H. Smith of Florida.  2 1/8" long overall with a 1 11/16" barrel of .107 caliber.  This piece fires the 2mm pinfire cartridges.  The steel frame is modestly hand engraved on both sides in a scroll vine and leaf pattern.  The top of the barrel is marked "-LHS-"  The serial number, 24, stamped into the bottom of the barrel just ahead of the trigger.  The piece was originally gold washed, but most of the gold wash is gone, showing only traces in the protected areas.  Nicely aged two piece ivory grips with nickel silver escutcheons, a nice patina and grain, and the screw entering from the left side.  Complete with the original Larry Smith walnut hinged top casing with push button latch.  The interior English fit and lined in a purple felt.  The bottom of the case marked "-L.H.-, SMITH, VP - 24, E" in four lines.  Accessories include a brass handled steel cleaning rod, the steel finished in the white, and 13 2mm pinfire blank cartridges.There is some minor rust etching, mostly around the front sight, and on the bottom and back of the gripstrap.  The cartridge block in the interior of the case has a very obvious crack, and there are some scratches and bruises on the case lid.  Priced accordingly.  This would be a fairly easy piece to restore if you have the skills, or if you buy it, I could send it to Larry and have him restore it for you.
