Description

John George Campbell, the 9th Duke of Argyll and Marquis Of Lorne, was Canada's fourth Governor General, from 1878 to 1883. I do not know what he did, or why he was famous enough to have his name associated with a seemingly insignificant little pocket revolver. Be it as it may, in present times, the "Marquis of Lorne" pocket revolvers are perhaps better known than they were back in the 1880's. This specimen is a rare, factory engraved example, with a gold plated cylinder and cylinder pin. The engraving and markings are crisp and sharp. The action is tight, the cylinder indexes correctly and lock-up is good. The gold on the cylinder is about 50% intact, the nickel on the rest of the gun is about 80%. The grips rate about very fine, with a tiny chip missing on the left side. The varnish is mostly intact, with minor handling marks. 2 3/4 inch barrel, SN 992, rated Very Fine overall.
