French & Indian War Highland officer's pistol by Will Allen
ITEM #: 1
PRICE: price on request
Superb condition all-iron/steel Highland pistol by famed early maker Will Allen. Another Allen pistol was carried by a officer of the First Highland Battalion in the French and Indian War; it is illustrated in the catalog of the Clash of Empires exhibition (Heinz History Center, Pittsburgh, on page 34). This identical pistol illustrated in a 1935 US auction catalog (copy to purchaser), proving that this pistol has been in North America for a long time, likely since the French and Indian War!
