George H. Daw pattern 1856 Volunteer percussion short rifle, .577 caliber, with nicely checkered walnut stock, the lock inscribed G. H. Daw, the barrel flat inscribed George H. Daw 57 Threadneedle St. London, retains what appears to be an original 19th century commercial production cone (nipple) protector with a chain securing it to a small stud, forward of the trigger guard, blank coin silver thumb escutcheon, folding rear ladder sight, steel ramrod with brass tip, 32" barrel. Daw marked rifles from the era have a strong association with the Confederacy and although it is not possible to determine if this rifle was one of the Daw rifles that saw Confederate service, it is certainly a possibility. SN #3622 stamped in stock.

Competitive In-House shipping is available for this lot.
