Here is a very rare Lucius W. Pond Single Action Pocket Revolver. The pond revolver was produced in several variations from 1861 to 1870. It featured a "bored-through" cylinder chambered in .32 rimfire; a design which directly infringed on Rollin White's patent held by Smith & Wesson. In 1869, S&W sued Pond. After losing the lawsuit in 1870, Pond was forced to cease production immediately and the remaining 4,486 revolvers at their plant were required to be marked "MANUF'D FOR SMITH & WESSON PAT'D APRIL 5, 1855".
This particular example is the last iteration of Pond's revolver, and as such is marked with the S&W patent info on the barrel. These iron framed revolvers are the rarest of Pond's multiple revolvers, making this gun highly collectible.
This revolver is all original and in great condition. It features a nice even patina with great markings.
The action functions, but the trigger has some difficulty holding full cock reliably.
