"SPILLER & BURR REVOLVER. SN 345. Cal. 36. Spiller & Burr standard model revolver with "CS" stamped on left side of frame. SN occurs on bbl, frame, trigger guard, and inside stocks. Interesting is that inside the left stock is nicely scratched the name "John H. Fowler, 1888". The right stock is similarly inscribed "J. H. F. / Elkton / MD". I don't know who Mr. Fowler is, but it would be interesting to know his story. Inside of frame is also marked with a cryptic letter "M". This is an attractive specimen of the popular Atlanta & Macon made, brass-framed, Confederate revolver. Mr. Michels Notes State: The partnership of Edward N. Spiller and David J. Burr produced their first revolvers at an Atlanta factory and then at Macon, Georgia. Total production was approximately 1,250 revolvers. This revolver is serial number 345 and is stamped CS on the left side of the brass frame. The serial number appears under the barrel, at the top of the grip frame, inside the trigger guard, and inside the wood grips. The inside of the left grip is inscribed John H. Fowler 1888 and the inside of the right grip is similarly inscribed JHF / Elkton Md. PROVENANCE: Ben Michel collection. CONDITION: Bbl is brown with scattered pitting. Hammer & cyl are also brown with scattered pitting. Loading assembly appears replaced and is smooth and brown. Mainspring appears replaced. Right stock has about a 1" x 1/2" chip repaired and a much smaller chip opposite it. 4-31352 JS107 (12,000-15,000)"
