 my collection of antique guns
   De Aretio Vitoria  Spanish double-barreled pin fire pocket pistol ca. 1860


Belgian-made Double-Barrel Pistol,  .40 caliber Percussion. One shot per barrel. Unknown manufacture date but believed between 1850 and 1870. Pistol has the Belgian proof-mark ELG (in an oval) on the left side of pistol. Walnut grips.
I was told this gun was recently found sealed up in the wall of a home in Germany that was being renovated.
at the end of the war Germans hid the "contraband" firearms to avoid being arrested by the Allied soldiers while searching there houses.
