SPILLER & BURR CONFEDERATE REVOLVER. SN 67. Cal. 36. This rare, early serial numbered Spiller & Burr is marked CS on right side of frame, and Spiller & Burr is stamped on top bbl flat. SN is found on bbl, cyl, frame, and base pin. Loading assembly must have broken on this gun, and the soldier continued to use it by improvising a solid end where loading assembly once was. Stocks, when removed, have a date, a name, and other barely discernible writing. Further research may ascertain identity from these markings. CONDITION: Metal surfaces are gray/brown. Brass has been cleaned and has numerous scratches and dings. Stocks are dented, with several cut notches in each, and a 1 x ½ sliver is missing from toe of left stock. Cyl appears to have old repair which is pitted and rusted. Action does not work. Triggerguard is not serial numbered and is probably from a Whitney. 8-76223 JS229 (12,000-15,000)
