Lawful standard Netherlander AN IX
Here a curious pistol having been useful in the regular manner in the Dutch army (for proof regimental markings on the cap).
Of general aspect, it is quasi a AN 9 French, except for lock markings and of the form to “embouchoir” it.
Built in 1835, it uses a barrel of recovery of AN 9 (barrel marked of the B of Blachon and dated year 13, therefore coming from Saint Etienne).
One finds a model similar in the book of Brooker “Armes de poing militaires françaises” (French military weapons of fist) on page 258.
Other trimmings: L
Lock: P (of Piron) in an oval and 35 (1835)
Cap: F (or E?) 71 (regimental marking).
