"LeMAT AND GIRARD’S PATENT LONDON TWO BARREL REVOLVER. SN 8074. A fine example of this London, England Made LeMat Revolver manufactured about 1865. This was the last percussion revolver manufactured under LeMat’s patent. Caliber 42 rifled barrel & 16 gauge smoothbore. Serial Number 8074. In the book on LeMats by Doug Adams, Adams states the London LeMats serial numbered 8000-9000 were a Confederate Navy contract made by Tipping & Co. in England. Late London made LeMat with 6-9/16" octagon barrel with block letter address on top flat "LEMAT & GIRARD’S PATENT LONDON". It has the tall LeMat front sight & has the serial number on right flat in front of cylinder. Serial number also appears on right front side of frame and barrel near the breech. No serial number was observed on smoothbore bbl but it does have two Birmingham proofs & number "18" which probably refers to bore diameter. It has left side rammer that operates in a channel between barrel and rear barrel boss and the serial number on inside of rammer handle. It has single pin barrel assembly lock with knurled head. It has a center mounted articulated hammer nose & 9-shot cylinder that pivots around smoothbore barrel and has serial number with Birmingham proofs around perimeter. It has integral solid butt cap & lanyard loop without ring. This revolver represents one of the important models in the string of variations produced in this revolver. With the documentation in Adams’ book, it is highly likely that this revolver was manufactured on contract for the Confederacy. Mr. Michel’s Notes State: “This is the final version of the percussion LeMat revolvers, made by C. Girard & Co. under contract with the Confederate Navy Department. IT is serial numbered 8074 on all the component parts and the barrel marked in block letters “LEMAT & GIRARD’S PATENT LONDON”. It still has considerable blue/brown finish overall except for the hammer, which was apparently finish bright.” CONDITION: Fine. This LeMat retains much of its original blued finish, about 50% on the barrel and 80% on the cylinder. The remaining metal parts have a nice dark, uncleaned brown patina. The grips show appropriate wear. 4-31371 CW8 (19,000-23,000)"
