Warren H. Buxton (1935–2016) Cowboy, Electrical Engineer and Walther Researcher Extraordinaire

Warren H. Buxton was an extraordinary man of boundless energy  and enthusiasm. Although he was best known for his groundbreaking books on the P38, Warren also wrote Russell M. Catron and His Pistols, and, at the time of his death, had nearly completed an encyclopedic reference on the Walther Olympia. In the planning stage was another project, for he had photocopied virtually all of Walther’s postwar P38 records for yet another book!   Those are serious accomplishments for a fellow who grew  up in a remote section of Wyoming, specifically on the Ucross ranch, a place most people would describe as “a hundred miles from nowhere.” Spending his youth as a bona fide cowboy, Warren’s first experience with the real world came through his enlistment with the military.  After high school he signed up with the Air Force where he trained as an electronics technician and flew in an RB-47 reconnaissance bomber. Four years later, after his tour of duty, Warren returned to Wyoming ranching. But only briefly. The first hard winter, in which some of the daily highs hit -50F, prompted Warren to do “something else.”   So Warren went back to school, starting with Trinidad State Jr. College and finishing at University of New Mexico where he graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering. His first job was with the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico where he worked with “Q” clearance, one of the highest levels of security with access to “special intelligence.” Just what he did still remains a mystery, even to his closest friends. As Warren was inclined to say, with a chuckle and a sly smile, “If I told you, I’d have to kill you.”    It was during his tenure at Los Alamos that Warren became interested in P38s. According to David Witkowski, long term OGCA member and close friend, Warren spotted his first “good” P38 at a Columbus show while traveling with Ernie Lang, another OGCA member and a founder of the National Automatic Pistol Collectors Association (NAPCA). Of course, the gun was priced “outrageously” and Warren didn’t get it, but  the P38’s mystique coupled with Warren’s unbridled curiosity set up a chain of investigation that Warren pursued for the rest of his life and expressed through his books.

After retiring from Los Alamos, Warren took a brief respite from German guns to write a short work on the Catron pistols that briefly explored Kimballs, the High Standard T3 and the Colt T4. It made no difference that the Catron’s production was limited or that most gun aficionados had never heard of the company. Warren got interested and he wanted the information “out there.” The Catron book was published in 2004. At about the same time, Warren’s interest returned to Walther. He was fascinated by the Olympias and learned all he could about their development and production. Some OGCA members may remember his displays: “The Beginning of a Walther Legend” (2005-2009); “The Walther Olympia” (2009, 2012); and “A Few Rare Walther Automatic Pistols” (2015). In his last showing, Warren’s Walther AP #10 with stock was awarded the Thomas L. Kyser Best Single Gun award. Joking aside, Warren’s book on the Olympias and its competitors will have the same monumental and lasting effect as his P38 anthology. Fortunately for the collector’s community, a number of contributors have volunteered to complete his effort that needs only a fine tuning before being published by Simpson, Ltd. We have all heard the phrase “I could never have accomplished that task had I not been standing on the shoulders of giants.” Warren was one of those giants. As anyone interested in firearms history and mechanical developments would attest, his name was synonymous with integrity and meticulous research. Yet reputation aside, there was so much more to the man as his intellect, knowledge, and passion for discovery invariably made an indelible impression. It will be a long, long time until anyone comes close to filling his shoes. Warren, rest in peace.

As all writers know, finishing the first publication is the hardest. You have to build your knowledge base while achieving peer credibility and hope that the book will be critically acclaimed. To state that The P38 Pistol Vol I: Walther Pistols, published in 1978, met that milestone would be an understatement. It was a first class text whose presentation included a level of detailing that was previously unknown. The book sold out quickly, bringing Warren incredible notoriety. Now an accomplished author, doors opened magically, as collectors from around the world rushed to contribute and seek acknowledgment. The P38 Pistol Vol II: Contract Pistols was published in 1984 and The P38 Pistol Vol III: Postwar Distribution in 1990. All three were reprinted in 1999.

Fred S. Donaldson, Jr. (1935–2017) On June 25, 2017 Fred Donaldson passed away with an incurable lung disease, and the collecting community at large lost a friend. Fred loved attending gun shows and spending time with his collector friends. He was a former member of the Texas Gun Collectors Association and the American Society of Arms Collectors. He was currently a member of the Civil War Roundtable in Gainesville, Florida and a life member of the NRA and a life member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans where he was active until his passing. Fred began collecting as a teenager in Waldo, FL, a small community near Gainesville, where he grew up. He bought items and later sold them to buy better ones to upgrade his collection. He collected Confederate arms and accoutrements and Florida-used weapons and history. Fred was especially interested in collecting Confederate items because he had four Confederate ancestors. As he wrote in his own obituary, “He was very proud of his four Confederate ancestors who didn’t own slaves and fought to defend their families and property from Northern aggression. Two of his Confederate ancestors mustered out in Waldo in May of 1865.” Fred was an avid reader of World War II and Civil War history and collected memorabilia associated with those conflicts. He also collected lots of World War II veteran friends and attended many local veteran meetings. Fred was a graduate of the University of Florida with a degree in agriculture with a major in entomology. He worked at the plant board for the university for a time and later with several agricultural chemical companies. He retired after 25 years with Bayer Agricultural Chemical Company, working in Louisiana and Mississippi. Fred was married to Judy for 50-1/2 years, and they had two children and two grandchildren. Fred and Judy moved back to his hometown of Waldo several years after his retirement. Judy attended many gun shows through the years and watched his table while he spent most of the time visiting with fellow gun collectors and friends.

Russell G. Grinnell (1938–2016) Russell was a firearms and Randall knife enthusiast since the mid1950s. He collected the nicest or most unusual that he could afford while rearing our family, two sons, Scott & Russell, and a daughter, Elizabeth, each now have to start their own firearms collection. We went to gun shows and enjoyed them as a family. I learned a lot about firearms along the way. My grandson Rusty has a nice rifle and two already earmarked for my great-grandchildren, Gavin and Warner! In the middle 1990s Russell had to sell his first collection to help pay for a liver transplant, which is when we became fans and friends of the James D. Julia Auction Company. After the transplant surgery it was apparent he was going to recover and Russell almost immediately began collecting again. This time, it was L.C. Smith shotguns, and again, we called upon Julia’s to help us disperse them when Russell’s heart began giving him problems a few years ago. In true collector fashion, as we were selling, Russell continued buying always searching for the best, extra nice, and unusual pieces. He loved to research what he could glean about each gun he purchased and put together very good notes on each gun and knife. Amazingly, the last three guns Russell purchased arrived the afternoon before he passed. I brought the guns in the house and laid them on his chair where he always sat and he said he would catalog them in the morning. Russell had a wonderful and full life and we met so many good people and made so many friends in the gun trade. Russell researched so many guns that I also became friends with the ladies at the Cody Museum. I too valued these friendships because they kept Russell alive and wanting to live. Together, we shared 59 years, but didn’t quite make our 59th wedding anniversary. I certainly miss the conversations Russell and I shared about the firearms and the research he did on their histories. But now, it is time to share these guns with someone else who will appreciate the history and condition just as Russell did. —Joyce Grinnell

Morris L. Racker (1929-2016) Morris was born in 1929 in Waverly, Iowa, to Leonard and Elinore (née Rone) Racker. After graduating from Waverly High School in 1947, Morris attended University of Iowa, where he majored in Art and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. Following college graduation in 1951, Morris enlisted in the Army and entered basic training in Breckenridge, Kentucky, followed by additional training in Fort Holabird, Maryland. From there, Morris was assigned to the Central Intelligence Corps (CIC) in Germany, where he served from 1952-1954. After his service, Morris remained in Dusseldorf, Germany as an investigator in the Refugee Investigations Division, a civilian division within the CIC. It was during this time that Morris met his future wife, Helga, who worked as a translator with the British Consulate in Dusseldorf. After marrying in 1957 in Locarno, Switzerland, Morris and Helga moved back to Iowa in order for Morris to pursue his master’s degree. Morris graduated with distinction with a Master of Fine Arts degree from University of Iowa in 1959. His career began as a graphic package designer with John Morrell & Co. in Ottumwa, Iowa. In 1961 Morris and Helga moved to Chicago where they raised their family and resided there for the rest of their lives. With his wife Helga’s success as an entrepreneur, Morris and Helga enjoyed international travel, visiting Europe, South America, and Asia and traveling throughout the United States. They were lifelong antique collectors, and picked up many interesting items over the years. In time, Morris developed a keen interest in Civil War militaria, and began his exemplary collection of Civil War firearms, particularly rare and unique Confederate items, an interest he continued to pursue throughout the rest of his life. Morris welcomed interaction with people from all walks of life, as long as they were good listeners and open to the next joke (usually his). Shortly after celebrating 59 years of marriage in April of 2016, Helga passed away. Morris followed a few months later, passing away in October of 2016. James Julia Auctions is extremely happy to be offering the Morris Racker Collection of such diversity, rarity and high condition.

Forrest Rhodes I was born in Reno, NV. Following that, my family moved to California at a time when that area was very Western, being just a few miles from where Western Horseman magazine originated. We then moved to the Blackfeet Reservation in MT when I was 7 and 8. There I got my first rifle, a Springfield 22, which I treasured for years. We later moved back to California and then to Paris, France. I spent extra time studying guns such as the Darne shotgun, but had no time for shooting. In my 20s I decided to learn to fly. I started in Cessnas and ultimately received private, commercial, instrument and instructor’s certificates. I then began instructing and obtained multi–engine, advanced ground instructor, and instrument instructor certificates. From there I was hired by Flying Tigers Airlines and, a year later, by Pan Am airlines. This was in the 60s. During that time, while enjoying layovers in London, I had the opportunity to take fly casting lessons from Hardy’s and spent a considerable amount of time with that wonderful gentleman Mr. Lawrence at Purdy’s in London. Mr. Lawrence would patiently teach me about variations of the English side by sides. He was a wonderful gentleman! When I had been with Pan Am for about 29 years, they sold the Atlantic routes to Delta and I became a Captain for Delta the next 8 years. After retirement, I took up collecting seriously around the year 2000. There are, of course, many reasons for collecting. Mine is the beauty of engraving and inlay or, as a good friend says, “I’m a Crow—I like bright shiny things.” In addition to collecting, I try to support the 2nd amendment and conservation, therefore, I am an NRA Benefactor member, life member of Safari Club International and Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, and member of Ducks Unlimited, Turkeys Unlimited, Gun Owners of America and Concerned Citizens for the Right to Keep & Bear Arms. I have hunted in Sonora, Mexico for mule deer, Coues deer and dove; in Canada, in the NW Territories with the Dog Rib Indians for caribou and in BC for bear and moose; and over 15 states in the US for numerous game. Perhaps one of my more exciting experiences was harvesting a desert big horn in Arizona. I am currently happily living in the Wyoming Rockies.

John Robert Roughton, Jr. John Robert Roughton, Jr., (Bob), born June 28, 1938, in Norfolk, VA, took an interest in firearms at age 12, when given his first rifle, a single shot 22. He fondly remembers target practicing using tin cans while visiting his grandparent’s farm. He graduated from VPI in 1960 and proceeded into the US Army as a 2nd Lieutenant. His interest in firearms was increased during his service years and he started collecting thereafter. His first notable purchase was a Civil War percussion musket. By then married to his wife, Sylvia, he left the army with a rank of Captain. He spent the next 40 years in the family business of Roughton Pontiac Corp., all the while adding to his collection. For a while he collected Colts but later added Winchesters, Civil War Carbines, Flintlock Military Muskets, Remingtons, Smith & Wessons and Military Knives. Valuable Flintlock Muskets made by Springfield, Virginia Manufactory and Harpers Ferry enhanced his collection. Of special interest were two Harpers Ferry pistols, the last pair made.

Arlen Saunders A longtime firearms enthusiast and collector, Arlen has spent over 60 years building his collection. His passion for fine firearms run the gambit from primitive flintlocks to bespoke European shotguns. He was an early member of The National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association and spent many years in the early 50s and 60s at shoots around Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee and especially Friendship, Indiana. While he bought and sold many flintlock and percussion rifles, he loved to build them and share his knowledge with others. He developed friendships with many of the craftsmen who fashioned primitive weapon components such as Bill Large, the barrel maker. Arlen was also a devoted American shotgun collector with items including L.C. Smith, Winchester, Remington, Parker Bros, and A.H. Fox. This led him to be a member of the Parker Gun Collectors Association as well as a member of the Ohio Gun Collectors Association. As a trained engineer, he enjoyed design as well as the aesthetics of a well-made firearm. This led him to specialize in German Drilling Rifles late in his collecting years. He joined the German Gun Collectors association and has traveled to many European countries with the group over the years including, Britain, Scotland, Italy, Switzerland, German and Austria. Touring facilities where fine, bespoke guns are built and engraved was a joy for him to view. He also enjoyed shooting on some of the European estates of the countries he was touring. Good food, good friends and beautiful scenery were in abundance on those trips. He has enjoyed collecting and traveling to find new firearms to add to his collection, but now feels that it’s time to find new homes for his items and is pleased that they will be going to enthusiasts that will appreciate them as much as he does.

Tim Zissler Tim Zissler is a retired machinist from Minneapolis. In the 1980s he caught the gun collecting bug and began to assemble a modest but highly conditioned set of Winchester lever action rifles. In the picture to the right, Tim (on the right) is seen at a Winchester Collectors Association show in July of 1995 at Cody, WY along with Ethyl Saign, Charlie Foster and Warren Webster. Tim became fast friends with Ray and Ethyl and spent many Sunday afternoons talking guns and enjoying Ray and Ethyl’s fine cooking. The form, fit and function of the Winchester levers automatically appealed to Tim’s machinist’s instincts. The collection spans the full range of levers from the 1866 to the 1894. All of Tim’s guns are the best that he could find and afford. They are characterized by having unturned screws and high conditioned original finish. His particular passion became the Model 1873 and are offered here to the discriminating collector. Tim is truly a caretaker whose concern is that the collection be acquired by individuals who will treasure the pieces just as he did and maintain them in their pristine condition for years to come. Tim and his wife Connie now live in Wyoming within easy commute to the Buffalo Bill Firearms Museum where they continue to enjoy quality Winchesters and country music.

Session 2: Wednesday, November 1, 2017

Commencing immediately following NFA & Class 3 Extraordinary Firearms Please Read Conditions of Sale Before Bidding Lots 2200-2763

Session 2 2200.

**JAPANESE TYPE 89 GRENADE DISCHARGER (DESTRUCTIVE DEVICE) (C&R). SN 92518. Cal. 50mm. 10” bbl. Good specimen of a Japanese type 89 grenade discharger often erroneously referred to as “knee mortar”. This misnomer, derived from the curved baseplate which although intended to help set the mortar into the ground, was shaped such that a man might mistakenly think it could be braced against a leg. In the event of such a misuse the result would be grievous injury to the leg. This specimen retains the coil spring and keeper which would have original held a canvas cover to protect the action from dust or dirt; canvas cover is not present. One inert projectile is included, complete with hard Bakelite fuse plug at nose. Included prov is letter from son of WWII Veteran and copy of original amnesty 4467 with copy of letter sent by the registrant indicating Mortar was acquired in Borneo while registrant was serving in the Seabees. Also included are photocopies of letters sent by registrant to BATF in 1976 verifying serial number. Visible numbered parts appear matching. This is a National Firearms Act item and requires BATF approval for transfer. This item is fully transferable on an ATF form 3 or 4, as Curio and Relic eligible, as a Destructive Device (DD). CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is good with the majority of the bbl retaining a lustrous purple hued finish except there are areas of moderate to significant cratering, particularly around the ring of the base cup. Mechanics need attention. Firing mechanism has good tension and a positive “snap” when actuator is pulled, however, adjustment knob does not rotate screw within action. These Japanese mortars saw widespread use in the Pacific theater and were highly effective used as often as direct fire weapons at relatively close quarters as they were in an indirect fire role. A popular souvenir and particularly nice to find when it has not been deactivated by having a hole cut in the bbl. 52540-1 JWK77 (1,500-3,500) C&R

2201.

DEACTIVATED MODEL 20A1 SUPER BAZOOKA 3.5 INCH ROCKET LAUNCHER. SN 236963. Cal. 3.5 rocket launcher, manufactured by the Birtman Electric Co, is electrically fired. Having optical sighting device with sighting grid. 1-1/4” military web sling. Lightweight aluminum construction. Takes down to 31-1/2”, with an overall assembled length of 60”. The M20A1 Super Bazooka replaced the earlier 2.75” anti-tank rocket launcher. These were utilized for many years into the Vietnam era, until finally being replaced by the L.A.W.S. rocket launcher. CONDITION: Very fine overall, as it has been deactivated by having a 1/2” steel rod welded in place at the breech and by having a 3-1/2” diameter hole bored into the chamber. The hole has been creatively patched using a synthetic material and the entire launcher itself has been repainted to its proper OD green color. Optics are clear and bright, sling is fine. A really interesting item for any military collection. 52717-1 TDW (1,500-3,000)

Session 2

2271. RARE SCAGEL DOUBLE EDGED FIGHTING KNIFE WITH STACKED LEATHER AND STAG HANDLE WITH ORIGINAL SHEATH. Fine Scagel fighting knife that has 7-3/16” double edged spear point blade with triangle shaped ricassos, one side of which is stamped with Mr. Scagel’s trademark Kris. Hand guard is oval shape with fluted top edge. Handle is stacked leather, red washers with aluminum & copper spacers. Pommel is stag, secured with a single brass rivet. Accompanied by its original Scagel made black leather, hand stitched sheath with thumb snap. Back of the sheath is crudely stamped “P.R.M.”. This knife is similar in shape and size to several others pictured in the book Scagel Handmade, Lucie. William Scagel was the great grand daddy of American custom knife makers in the modern era. He was born February 1875 in Ontario, Canada and in 1900 immigrated to the United States. In 1917 he opened his shop in Muskegon, MI where he worked in metal & cutlery and in the 1936-1937 period began his knife-making career and died in 1963. Mr. Scagel’s knives have been the inspiration for numerous custom knife-makers ever since. He produced knives from the tiniest bird & fish knife to the giant camp knives, along with axes & folding knives. He also produced numerous other articles such as copper-ware skillets, pots & pans. He even made corkscrews. His knives rarely come to market. CONDITION: Good, no original finish remains with the blade a cleaned gray metal patina with some fine surface etching. Handle is sound, showing moderate wear with the leather a little dry. Scabbard is fine, solid & clean. 52456-1 JRL (6,000-8,000)

2272. VERY RARE WWII V-42 FIGHTING KNIFE ISSUED TO WILLIAM B. MCINTOSH, USS OMAHA. This knife is in very good condition with blade measuring 7-5/16” retaining most of its blued finish in its correct scabbard. Scabbard still retains the “U S S OMAHA” stamped markings which are almost always obliterated. Beneath these markings are SN “C-15”. There were only 70 of these knives issued to the USS OMAHA. This is a rare WW II fighting knife that is rarely offered identified and Wm. B. McIntosh is shown on Omaha’s crew list (see attached Muster Roll of Crew in provenance). William B. McIntosh is listed as a Seaman 2nd class (S2cV6) for the quarter ending September 30, 1944. The USS Omaha was the lead ship of the Omaha-class light cruiser and had a fairly illustrious WWII history and its history should be read on the provenance link online. PROVENANCE: William B. McIntosh 1944-1948; William McIntosh Jr. 1948; Present owner and consignor. CONDITION: Good to very good overall. Blade retains most of its orig blue finish with scattered areas of pitting.

ORIGINAL BRASS CARTRIDGE CASE FROM WORLD WAR I “BIG BERTHA” CANNON. NSN. Only one dozen massive “42cm Kurze Marinekanone 14 L/12 in Raderlafette” (42cm short naval cannon on wheeled carriage) were manufactured. The gun was nicknamed “Dicke Bertha” (Big Bertha) by German soldiers in WWI. The gun was designed under great secrecy by Krupp. At the time of construction, the Big Berthas were the largest and most powerful, movable artillery pieces by use of any army in the world. The gun could fire projectiles weighing close to one ton, almost six miles. Shells could penetrate close to 50 ft of concrete and soil. The crew to service one “Big Bertha” was 125 men. Cartridge casing has height of almost 17” bottom diameter of 16.8” a base diameter of 18.3” and weighs over 80 lbs. Casing is marked on base with various proofs and date of July ( Juli) 1915 and maker “MAGDEBURG”. Cartridge casing was not physically attached to the projectile. In operation of this massive gun, the projectile was loaded first, then cartridge with propellant charge was taken from a wicker basket designed to hold each cartridge, which included several hundred pounds of propellant charge. This massive casing is a very rare collector’s item today and nearly all specimens were melted down for their scrap value in years past. CONDITION: Original unaltered unpolished, pleasing patina with scattered areas of more dark patina, with just traces of green verdigries. Interior completely unaltered and vintage. This is a fantastic military conversation piece that can also be used as a one-of-akind antique side table. 51900-1 JWK101 (1,500-3,000)

2367. *SUPERLATIVE TOKYO ARSENAL MANUFACTURED 7MM JAPANESE BABY NAMBU. SN 1385. Cal. 7 mm. 3-1/4” bbl. Deep arsenal rust blue finish with checkered walnut 2-pc grips and nickel aluminum based magazine. Straw finished trigger, magazine release and extractor. The Baby Nambu with a believed production of less than 6500 has always been the iconic WWII Japanese collectible. Rarely found in prime or top collector’s condition as these guns were of early manufacture in the 1920s and survival was rather small. These were a private purchase item and were typically purchased only by significant officers. CONDITION: Extremely fine, with most all finish remaining, with the slightest loss of finish on the front of the trigger and the top left spring guide to the left of chamber. The bore is bright with sharp rifling and after detailed disassembly, all numbers were found to be matching including the magazine and all major components. Mechanics are crisp as to be expected, and in addition to this fine pistol are 2 orig WWII cartridges cal. 7 mm Nambu, one with Cupro nickel jacket, the other traditional brass jacket. This is an outstanding example and will be a wonderful addition to any collection. 52544-1 TDW (4,000-6,000) C&R

2368. *ULTRA-RARE JAPANESE ISSUED SUGIURA SHIKI 6.35 POCKET PISTOL. SN 192. Cal. 6.35. 3” bbl, blue finish overall. Checkered brown wood grips. Manufactured in China under Japanese occupation from 19441945. It is estimated that fewer than 500 of these unique Pocket model pistols were ever produced. These guns were made for the China Expeditionary Force with extremely limited distribution. Observed SN range is from 103-475 with fewer than 10 having been observed or identified. An extreme rarity for Japanese collectors with little information having been printed or confirmed. SN 192 is a relatively new discovery and one of the finer examples to have been observed. 8 rnd magazine capacity, straight blowback operation with concealed hammer. CONDITION: Very good overall with most blue finish remaining, having approximately 25% thinning with numerous small abrasions on slide and grip straps. Bore is frosted with strong rifling and mechanics are functional, all visible numbers are matching. This being said, this is an exceptional example of the Sugiura Shiki 6.35 pistol. 52707-1 TDW (2,500-3,500) C&R

2372. *NEAR MINT CONDITION GERMAN 98K “ar 42” MAUSER FIELD TRIAL SNIPER RIFLE. SN 2327. Cal. 8mm. This fantastic specimen has all matching numbered parts and has correct eagle over 26 proof marks with eagle over Swastika firing proofs. Laminated flat buttplate stock retains it’s SN and eagle over 26 cartouche, however, no issue cartouche present which leads this cataloger to the conclusion that it was never issued. This rifle would have had a low power 1.5x “Aim-point” type scope. The intended purpose was to equip 10% of infantry with a low powered scope which would have high light gathering ability useful at dawn and dusk. This rifle was made at the Mauser plant in Berlin-Borsigwalde (the old DWM plant) with the bolt stop re-designed as a scope base. CONDITION: Absolutely fantastic lustrous, orig finish with some thinning at the muzzle and along the high points with some brassing to the top ears of the scope mount and some areas of light pitting and brown patina on the buttplate which seams to be inescapable on these rifles. Bore is excellent, shiny and bright. Stock is absolutely gorgeous with only the occasional ding, never sanded or messed with. Most of these rifles were apparently lost in the East as were the scopes and are largely overlooked by most German Rifle collectors. 52026-1 (3,500-5,500) C&R

2373. *MAUSER 98K SNIPER WITH QUICK DETACHED MOUNT. SN 8764. Cal. 8mm. 24” bbl. Late war 98K Rifle in sniper configuration with dialytan 4X Scope marked “bek”. Rifle manufactured 1945 by “BCD” ( J.P. Sauer). Scope mount has eagle over “359” proof marks on both base bottoms, which is attached to receiver and on slide on upper rail. Upper rail mount also has serial number which matches barrel serial number. Bolt serial number also matches, as does extended thumb safety with last two digits of serial number on it. Forend cap and barrel band are of the stamped and welded type as seen on late war 98Ks. Mag floor plate and receiver are well marked “gnw”. Wood of stock and hand guard is of the laminated type, smooth but without any oil finish. The cupped buttplate has a crosshatched pattern on rear. CONDITION: Very fine, mechanics are functional. Bore is bright with sharp rifling. All visible numbers appear matching with exception of scope itself, which are independently numbered. Overall finish and appearance is excellent. Barrel and receiver have smooth gray finish overall with some evidence of patina forward of the barrel serial number, and on the barrel forward of the end cap. The scope mount and rail is of a deep blue as are the actual scope rings, which appear like metal bands wrapped around the scope to hold it in the saddle of the lower scope ring. Likewise the extended safety switch and bolt removal lever are also of a deep dark blue. 52528-40 TDW (2,500-3,500) C&R

2391. *PROTOTYPE AND PATENT MODEL PISTOLS LOT OF TWO. 1) PROTOTYPE OLYMPIA PATTERN. NSN. Cal. .22. Prototype or toolroom developmental mock-up believed to be of the Erma or Walther Olympia pistols. 4-1/2” bbl, exposed hammer sgl action operation with 10 rnd mag capacity. Firearm is in the white and very crudely resembles the exposed hammer variation of the 1936 Olympia. CONDITION: Typical toolroom example having never been finished with many machine marks and was probably strictly a composite example for preproduction development. Obviously, not a functioning firearm thereby sold “as is”. 2) Walther Prototype. SN nsn. Walther wooden toolroom or patent model mock-up believed to be for the development of the P-99 type pistols being internally striker fired and obviously dbl action design. Wooden patent models are of the rarest of all collectibles in the developmental studies of firearms. Made of hardened maple, measuring 8” overall l and 5-1/4”h. Obvious design for a dbl stack mag in the 12-15 rnd range depending on diameter. Several small non-ferrous metal components exist inside such as a bbl trunnion and trigger guard pin. PROVENANCE: Session two of the extraordinary Warren Buxton Collection. CONDITION: Very fine with wood having been very heavily dried in a possible kiln. Very fragile due to its construction and is missing one grip screw in base. 52342-152, 52342-174 TDW (1,000-1,500)

Crown/BU markings on right side of chamber and slide are clear. Checkered wood grips. Mag marked “0” on right side. Missing the rear sight. This gun was sold several years ago by another auction company, and at that time was attributed to having been “taken from the Walther factory by Major Constance”. We do not have any supporting documentation to back up that claim. PROVENANCE: Ex Putnam Green Collection. Session two of the extraordinary Warren Buxton Collection. CONDITION: Good condition with a fair amount of blued finish, some light pitting in a few areas as noted. Bbl markings are partially illegible, finish may have been touched up. There appears to be a section of the outer bbl sleeve broken away at the chamber end on the right side. Grip is cracked in the usual spot on the upper rear left side. Checkering is very good. Set screw from right side of front sight is missing, as is rear sight. Bore is fine, bright with sharp rifling. Mechanics need attention, as lever on left side of frame does not stay as a hold open catch with front slide groove. 52342-44 GER (1,250-1,500) C&R 87

2719. EXCEPTIONALLY RARE 8 BORE WATERFOWLER BY JOSEPH H. GREENER, ELDER BROTHER OF WILLIAM WELLINGTON GREENER. NSN. Cal. 8 bore. 3-1/4” Chambers. Not only is this gun unusual in that it is a fairly high condition 8 bore water-fowler, but it was made by Joseph H. Greener; family lore relates that his younger brother William Wellington, the now famous gunmaker, “marched his brother Joseph off to Liverpool docks and gave him money to emigrate to Australia, because there was only enough room for one Greener to make guns in the United Kingdom.” Guns made by Joseph H. Greener are exceptionally rare; only one, a muzzle loader, is illustrated or described in THE GREENER STORY by Graham Greener. This very well made large bore breech loading example has 32” laminated steel bbls engraved “Joseph H. Greener Maker St. Mary’s Birmingham” on swamped game rib. Large Jones under lever action with nicely filed fences is fitted with back action non-rebounding locks having tall serpentine hammers.

Thick buttplate appears to be a later addition, but is possibly orig. Bores are good, scattered pitting throughout, but nothing real deep. Action is tight. Locks are fine. 52372-3 MGM210 (6,000-8,000)

Fine deluxe “Centennial” Winchester Model 1876 rifle with 28” oct bbl, full magazine, combination front sight & 1876 marked ladder rear sight. Top flat of bbl has the Winchester & King address & patent dates and caliber marking over the chamber area. Mounted with 2-3X deluxe shell & flame grain American walnut with “H” style checkered forearm and serpentine grip buttstock that has ebony inlay in grip cap & crescent buttplate with trap. Receiver has single set trigger. Left side of lower tang, under the wood has the assembly number “2694” and “XX”. Matching assembly number is also found in top tang channel of buttstock and inside toe of buttplate. According to Blue Book of Antique American Firearms & Values, Fjelstad & Allen there were 63,871 Model 1876 rifles & carbines produced in the period 1876-1897 in 4 different calibers and a variety of bbl lengths, both standard grade and deluxe plus muskets. Deluxe features on this model were special order only and are rarely encountered today. The Model 1876 was the first big bore repeating rifle offered on the American market. It was a favorite on the western frontier where the larger & heavier caliber bullets were capable of taking the very largest North American big game including Grizzly Bears, Moose, Elk & Buffalo. This model was a favorite of President Theodore Roosevelt which he carried on many hunting expeditions around the world. Deluxe versions of this rifle are quite rare with few encountered today. The extra cost of ordering such a rifle was generally prohibitive to the working man of that era and so few were ordered. CONDITION: Very fine, all matching. Overall the rifle retains 98-99% strong, early Turnbull style restored finish with bright blue on the bbl & magazine tube and bright case colors on the receiver, side plates, lever, hammer & buttplate. Forend cap colors have faded. There is a hair-line back of the top tang, otherwise wood is sound and retains about all of a fine professionally restored Winchester style finish with freshened checkering. Set trigger needs adjusting, otherwise mechanics are crisp. Bright bore with good shine and scattered fine pitting. 52327-2 (6,500-8,500)

He fought under General William T. Sherman, rising to command of the Union IV Corps. At the battle of Franklin, Tenn. he earned the Congressional Medal of Honor for leading a counterattack while being wounded in the neck. He continued to serve throughout the war. Following the cessation of hostilities, he remained in service as Colonel of the 22nd U.S. Infantry. He commanded the Yellowstone Expedition of 1873. Before being reassigned to Texas in 1879 to suppress Indian raids he was one of Gen. George Custer’s superiors, having reprimanded him several times. It was during his time in Texas when he ordered this gun directly from Colt. Undoubtedly the gun accompanied him to New Mexico where he was placed in command of the district. In 1884 he returned to Texas where he stayed until his retirement in 1892. This gun was purchased directly out of the family by the consignor and is accompanied by a factory letter, printed research, and a hard cover copy of the General’s autobiography.

3090. COLT ALTERED ARTILLERY MODEL SINGLE ACTION REVOLVER, PRIME CUSTER RANGE “LOT 5” SERIAL NUMBERED FRAME. SN 4563. Cal. 45. This pistol is accompanied by a John Kopec letter of authentication written in 2002 which in part states “Lot Five was one of the principle lots from which the 7th Cavalry received their initial issues on July 2, 1874, prior to their departure into the Black Hills. There is therefore a good possibility that the subject revolver while still in its cavalry configuration was also one of those which were issued to Custer’s Seventh Cavalry regiment. Our records indicate that three revolvers from within the 4500 serial number range have Custer Battlefield documentation. The revolver “4507” is listed in General Terry’s diary as being his personal revolver. A backstrap #4553 (only ten numbers lower than the subject revolver) was located near Indian Village circa 1992. A third example #4597 belonged to Lt. Luther Hare, 7th Cavalry 1874”. Other SNs on this gun are “1123” on bbl, “4609” on cylinder and trigger guard “31838”. The backstrap number has been obliterated by file marks. The bbl on this revolver was not altered at the same time as artillery configuration and is a shortened 7-1/2” cavalry bbl with front sight in incorrect position and wrong configuration. Regardless, Custer-era guns with good Lot Five SNs are extremely desirable in any configuration. CONDITION: Fair to good, grey patina overall. Grips show wear with tacking marks and old paper shims. Mechanically functional, well discerned rifling in bore. 52457-2 JS (4,000-6,000)
