This pistol was purchased by my dad at some point before 1980. It weights about 3 lbs. On the left side of the pistol grip are two separate sets of initials.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The presented object appears to be a U.S. 1848 percussion lock pistol made by U.S. Haston in the middle of the 19th century.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 300 to 600 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.
With kind regards,
