LH-Smith-Paterson-set-322-323-1.JPG

This is a very deluxe cased pair of 1/3 scale Colt number 5 "Texas" Paterson percussion revolvers with accessories by master miniature maker Larry H. Smith of Florida.  The serial numbers are 322 and 323, and both are the long barrel versions that Larry made.  If you know anything about Larry Smith Patersons, you know how rare these deluxe ones are, especially as a cased pair with the long barrels!  Each revolver is 4 3/16" long overall with a 2 1/2" octagon barrel of .121 caliber.  The barrels, cylinders, wedges, triggers, and screws are a high polished rust blue.  The frames are silver plated yellow brass.  The hammers are finished in the white.  Beautiful two piece mother of pearl grips with two yellow brass rivets securing them to the grip frame.  The barrel has five inlaid silver bands, one at the muzzle, two at the breech, and one on each step of the underlug.  The cylinder has two inlaid silver bands.  Typical of these Larry Smith Patersons, the triggers do not fold, and the cylinders must be hand indexed.  The hammers have both half and full cock.  Both are chambered for and will fire the 2mm pinfire cartridges.  Complete with the original Larry Smith mahogany hinged top casing with slide latch, and the original accessories.  The accessories include a three legged blue bullet mold with walnut handles that cast a single round lead ball, a walnut handled brass cleaning rod with brass ferrule, a brass non-functional single spout powder flask, and two brass lift top cap tins with green Eley labels, one of which has some minor scuffing.  The powder flask top unscrews and is used to hold the 2mm pinfire ammo.  When the top is removed, there is an exposed rod which is used to remove the spent cartridges.  One of the cap tins is empty, the other has a small quantity of round cloth cleaning patches.  Serial number 322 shows about 95% original blue with some very fine etching mostly on the barrel.  The frame shows about 75% of the original silver plating, overall I'd call it 90+%.  Serial number 323 shows 99+% original blue and about 15% of the original silver plating, I'd call it 90+% also.  The case shows only minor handling wear with a few very light scratches, the bottom stamped with the makers mark and the serial numbers.  The interior is French fit ,and lined in a burgundy velour.  The accessories are near mint.  The More photos soon!

Weston-Third-Texas-Paterson-1.JPG

This is a 1/3 scale Colt "Texas" number 5 Paterson revolver made by the famous Tom P. Weston of Mexico City, Mexico, from the mid 1940's through the 1950's.  3 13/16" long overall with a 2 1/4" octagon barrel of .122 caliber.  Beautifully blued finish except for the hammer which is case colored.  One piece pre ban ivory grips with a gorgeous color and grain.  This piece is 100% fully functional.  The trigger drops as the hammer is cocked, it indexes to the next chamber as the hammer is cocked, and the timing is perfect!  No visible markiinngs show on the outside, but the back of the barrel and the back of the cylinder are both marked with the number 8.  Cased in the original Weston mahogany hinged top casing with front clasp closure, and accessories.  The accessories include a functional mahogany handled 3 legged bullet mold that cast 1 round ball, a functional combination tool which serves as a screwdriver, loading rammer, nipple wrench, and nipple pick, and a mahogany handled brass cleaning rod.  There is a dummy capper made of yellow brass.  It has the general outlines of a Paterson capper, but is solid brass.  There is also a dummy powder/ball flask.  The body looks to be machined from one piece of solid brass, then it has the 5 spouts.  Again, it is not functional.  The casing is flush fit, and lined in a deep burgundy velvet.  There is some damage to the rear on the lower half of the casing, but the hinges are still intact and operable, & I have most of the pieces.  Not real noticeable when displayed, and may be easily repairable.  This is only the third one of these I have ever seen or heard of.

Weston-Third-Walker-A-Co-35-1.JPG

This is a 1/3 scale 1847 Colt Walker Dragoon revolver made by the legendary Tom P. Weston of Mexico City, Mexico back in the late 1940's to 1950's.  This is often called the 6" Walker by Weston collectors, as Weston made miniature Walkers in four different scales, this being the second to largest.  6 1/4"" long overall with a 3 7/16" part round part octagon barrel of about .16 caliber.  The piece is fully functional, and would fire given the proper percussion caps, powder, and lead bullets, but it sold strictly as a collectors piece.  The top barrel flat is marked "ADDRESS SAML COLT NEW YORK CITY".  The left side of the barrel lug, the left side of the frame, and the bottom of the gripstrap are marked "A COMPANY No 35".  The bottom rear of the barrel, the bottom front of the frame, and the bottom front of the triggerguard stamped with the number "35".  The right side of the barrel lug marked "US" and "1847" in two lines.  Checkered hammer spur, the hammer has both half and full cock, and has the typical 4 clicks when cocked.  The cylinder with the typical round cylinder stop notches without approaches.  The piece is made of steel, which has been rust blued except for the triggerguard and blade front sight which are yellow brass, and the frame, hammer, loading lever, and loading rammer which are very nicely case colored.  The grips are one piece Rosewood.  The piece is 100% mechanically, and still shows about 95% of the original rust blue finish, though is is starting to turn purplish in areas, and does show edge wear, cylinder turn marks, and some minor handling scratches.  The brass is a very dark beautifully aged patina and shows no signs of ever having been cleaned.  Some might argue that this piece was actually made by Fred Thacker in El Paso, Texas, a valid argument, as both Weston and Thacker used some of the same craftsmen.
