They went cheap at auction. Only $5.8 million for the pair. Pocket change for most.

Thanks Bob that was nice, made my day. The wood on the handles? Well it sure was pretty, but I haven’t a clue as to what kind of wood it is. I thought the pistols were going to be working firearms.

I think it’s red enamel. Pretty amazing pistols. Topa, where do you find this stuff?

I have a few freinds that keep my inbox full of stuff. Once in a while they come up with a good one ;-)

You think it is red enamel painted with a little wood grain?
