"AUGUSTA MACHINE WORKS PISTOL POSSIBLY CARRIED ON THE CSS SHENANDOAH . SN 24. Cal. 36. This Confederate made copy of a Colt Navy revolver, with 8” fully oct bbl, is thought to be a product of the Augusta Machine Works in Augusta Georgia. This fine inscribed gun was in the collection of David Cline who displayed his massive collection for many years along the walls of his bait shop in Eau Galley, FL. Many marveled at Cline's enormous collection from cap guns to Henry rifles and this Confederate handgun among others. He bought and traded for guns for many years until his collection was auctioned in the mid-1990s. This was probably the most significant historical gun as we know of no other Confederate arms from the CSS Shenandoah. “H Canning”, which is engraved on backstrap, is a sailor listed on the Shenandoah late in the Civil War. Augusta Machine Works pistols are thought to have been made late in the war based on other identified examples and finding an identified gun from the CSS Shenandoah, which sailed for months after the war officially ended, would make sense for a sailor in 1865 to have acquired such a gun. There are a couple variations of Augusta pistols: one having thick bulging grips, and the other, like, having slimmer grips like this one. Augusta’s can have 6 or 12 stop cylinders - this one has six. This is a fine example that appears to be orig throughout. Like so many guns of this pattern, serial numbers or cryptics appear infrequently on the gun. This gun exhibits serial number "24" on the unloading arm and inside the recoil shield. A number "2" is found on the back of the cylinder. There are two other nearly identical guns to this including serial number "61", which was once in the Ted Meredith collection. Letters of provenance accompany this gun from the buyer from the Cline auction a letter from Ted Meredith stating his opinion as to the guns authenticity. There are probably less than 20 examples known of all Augusta machine Works variations and this is a fine one. CONDITION: Metal surfaces smooth and gray overall with scattered scratches and pitting. Mechanics are very good. Stocks are solid & well fit with scattered scratches and nicks. 4-32944 JS506 (30,000-40,000)"
