This is a Rare and hard to come C.H. Ballard 41 rimfire single shot deringer. Only a few thousand were made in 30 rimfire and 41 rimfire. The numbers are all matching including the grips. They were made c. 1870. This one retains 40-45% fading blue finish. The grips are smooth walnut with over 90% original varnish. The bore and mechanical function is very good and tight. The serial number is 3805 and this one is about the nicest condition that I have come across. They are usually found with no finish and rough condition.
