    I once saw a pair of Egg dueling pistols (cased) at an antique show. So, perfect I considered taking a mortgage to buy them...I am glad I passed....sort of.

    That definitely lowers the value. Maybe the wife can pick them up cheap.

    Me too. What kind of devious message are you sending by offering to gift dueling pistols? My life insurance is good, but not that good. :)

    Cased set of target pistols, someone commissioned those to be made back in the day that was well heeled financially. Might have even been a gift for a good friend from someone with money.

    Very nice

    Definitely museum worthy pieces, but surprising the NYC Museum of Art would put weapons like this (even basic target plinkers) on display. Quite beastly of them.
