Alan Bradley Shepherd The plans of Alan and his father, Brad, were cut short by cancer in August of this year. Although not a smoker, Alan was diagnosed with lung cancer two years ago and he lost his battle on August 15th. Brad and Alan were well known to our Poulin team having attended here in person and online, both in Poulin and James Julia auctions. Alan enjoyed all aspects of the shooting sports with his dad from his preteen years to his passing at age 50. They hunted together in Argentina (doves), Alaska (Ptarmigan), Nebraska (partridge), South Dakota (Pheasant), Texas (deer, quail), Louisiana (geese), Georgia and Florida (deer, quail, doves, turkey). Father and son participated together in many trap, skeet and sporting clays events as well as NRA bullseye matches. Over the years they learned together to appreciate the art and craftsmanship of custom and engraved firearms. The hunt of a bargain became an enjoyable sport of its own. While not hunting and fishing with dad, Alan enjoyed the motorcycle sports, competing at Daytona on his racing bikes and traveling coast to coast on an off-road motorcycle trek. Alan was also well known to the yachting community, having achieved licensure to serve as Captain on large yachts and boats/ships of all types up to 3000 tons. Always on the lookout for special works of art in the firearms field, he brought home special pieces from around the world. During their time together, Brad and Alan met and cultivated a close relationship with Giacomo Arrighini of Perazzi fame and Bill Mains, well known Colt and sporting arms engraver. Several of the pieces in this collection were inspired by that association. As members of the Colt Collector’s Association, they won an award for their presentation of their Bill Mains engraved Colt collection. Many of Alan’s favorite Collectables are presented in this Poulin sale. Please enjoy them as he and his father did. 1035 1039 1055 1204 1206 1253 1256 1267

James Fasoli James (Jimmy) Fasoli was born in Stamford, CT on September 25, 1944 to the late Atilio & Helen Gelesky Fasoli. He lived in Stamford & Norwalk, CT all of his life and was a big part of the Stamford Community where he served in many organizations including the American Legion, Rotary Club, political organization and Toys for Tots. James was a Veteran of the US Army National Guard, serving from 1964-1970. He served with the Specialist Four Battery A, 2D Battalion Artillery during the Vietnam War. After his military service he owned his own heavy truck and trailer repair garage on Magee Avenue in Stamford, known as The Pumphouse Garage. After 35+ years with his own business he reluctantly closed his shop and then worked as a truck mechanic for the City of Stamford for 13 years. He was also an extremely passionate and dedicated volunteer for Toys for Tots of Stamford. His interest in guns and memorabilia started as a young man, even before his service when he made a gun cabinet in High School. His passion for collecting centered around World War II. In addition to his gun collection, which spanned 50 years of collecting, he also had an original restored WWII communications Jeep and an actual Duck Boat! He also had over 500 models of military vehicles, planes and boats. He loved to collect helmets, holsters, bayonets and all things military. He always referred to his collections as his “toys” but honestly, they were much more than that. He put much of his life into his collections and took incredibly great care of them. When he wasn’t working or volunteering he was with his “toys” and many, many good friends that shared his passion for firearms and collectibles.

Thomas graduated from Gardner High School in 1959 with honors and continued his education at the University of Massachusetts where he graduated Summa Cum Laude in 1963. Upon his graduation he was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant of the Infantry with the famed 82nd Airborne Corps, serving as a Mortar Platoon Leader. and later as a 1st Lieutenant Company Commander while with 2nd Battalion, 505th Infantry Regiment. He was subsequently promoted to Captain, and served as Unit Training Advisor in Vietnam for almost 2 years. Following his return to the U.S., COL Leavitt attended the Infantry Advanced Course, and was then transferred to Saudi Arabia. During this assignment, he learned Arabic while serving as a Unit Advisor. In 1971 COL Leavitt was promoted to Major and served at Fort Carson, Colorado, as an armor battalion operations and executive officer before serving as a brigade S4 and S3. In his final year at Fort Carson, he was the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations (ODCSOPS), the Pentagon. In 1978, he assumed command of the 4/9th Infantry Battalion, Fort Wainwright Alaska. After 20 months of Infantry Battalion Command, COL Leavitt was selected to be Commandant of the Northern Warfare Training Center at Fort Greely, Alaska, from 1983 until 1986. COL Leavitt then served in the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Headquarters as Director of Combat Doctrine prior to his selection promotion to Colonel and for attendance at the Army War College. Following the Army War College, COL Leavitt returned to the Pentagon, first to the G-3, where he served in the Current Plans and Operations Division for several years. During this assignment, he deployed in support of Operation DESERT SHIELD / DESERT STORM to liberate Kuwait, for which he was awarded the Kuwait Liberation Medal. Following his assignment in G-3, COL Leavitt was assigned to the office of the Army’s Inspector General (IG) where he led the Division of Special Investigations.

Gary Parietti Gary Parietti started his career as a rare coin and paper money dealer. He rapidly built his reputation and business as being one of the best numismatists in the industry. Having founded Long Island Numismatics he quickly gained a national reputation for being an expert in that field and attained substantial success. He was an avid sportsman loving his hunting and fishing trips to Wyoming and Alaska. As such he had both an admiration and respect for guns in general and he had his favorites for hunting purposes. In the early 80’s he was introduced to Kentucky rifles. Not only did he find them attractive but they were also steeped in history. From the “shot heard ‘round the world” to Davy Crockett, the Kentucky rifle and all their variants played a key role in the building of our nation. They became a natural extension to rare coins since both are a real representation of the history of our country and both have their respective peculiarities and varieties. Having amassed some 80 examples he moved on to other guns such as flintlock pistols, long guns, percussions and finally Colts with an occasional Winchester thrown in for good measure. Gary being an avid collector amassed about 500 examples of guns he felt were interesting, unique and historic. His style is eclectic meaning there is something for everyone that has an interest in firearms. He assembled a nice collection of 1st through 3rd generation Brown Bess muskets as well as many American revolutionary War long guns and pistols and he ended with Civil War and Winchester rifles. Colt percussion pistols were one of his favorite having assembled 40 or so Dragoons, Navy’s and Army’s, many as cased individual or matched sets. Like the Coin collector he was he had at least one example of every type of firearm from matchlock, wheel lock, flintlock, percussion and cartridge type guns. There is something for everyone in his vast collection of note. As with his coin & paper money business Gary loved to educate those that were interested in learning about each piece, their place in history, and the impact it made. His thirst for knowledge about a particular piece would lead him to the “who’s who” of the gun world to learn as much as he could so that not only would he be knowledgeable in that chosen item but so that he could impart that same knowledge base to those that were interested in collecting as well. He left us all far too soon and he is greatly missed as a husband, father, sportsman, bow hunter, avid ball player and friend. After his family and friends, his most prized possessions were those hard fought trophies he and his teammates received for a season of winning ball followed by his guns, and presidential document collections. Although some of his most favorite pieces are being retained by his family members as a tribute to his love of collecting, the bulk of his collection will be available for auction starting with the current one listed in this catalogue. Gary enjoyed discussing, teaching about, and collecting these historic pieces and was very passionate about this hobby. It is our hope that you, the gun enthusiast, will appreciate his efforts and strive to attain a representative piece for your collection as well.

Douglas W. Laube Over the 45 years that I have been collecting, I have been fortunate to make the acquaintance of several expert gunsmiths who had, in turn, connected me to Nick Kusmit as they did his after- market polishing and bluing work. My friendship with Nick began in about the year 2000 through several phone calls. A mutually trusting relationship developed slowly because of his concern related to several gun dealers having used his after- market work to resell as “original factory”. He explained to me that he did not want to be associated with counterfeit work. Therefore, I convinced him that for me, he would only initial his work [NK] if he could also put my initials [DWL] on each piece and that I would not sell any piece until after his death. This idea appealed to him and he only forgot to put these initials on his work a couple of times. Over the approximately 10 years of our friendship, I visited with Nick on three different occasions at his home in North Haven, CT while I was attending meetings at Yale. Nick and his wife [Judy] and I would go to dinner at his favorite restaurant, the Rustic Oak and after dinner he and I went to his basement to visit his “shop”, while showing me how he did his craft. I accumulated more than 30 pieces in this time-- mostly standard Winchester patterns, many of which he called the Number 2 Special---a standard Number 2 with extra scroll embellishment which he told me that his brother John taught him. He also prided himself in the pre-war Number 5 which he was always careful to put only on my Pre-war guns, similar to the Ulrich patterns. The time has come now more than 10 years after Nick’s death to allow Poulin’s to assist in finding new homes for these and many other pieces from my collection along with some pictures of Nick and a notebook containing some printed material and notes, and smoke prints that he sent with most pieces that were delivered. Also included are exchanged Christmas cards, thank you notes, and finally, notice of his funeral from his family. RIP, Nick---An Honest, talented, proud and humble man. 1188 1407 1408 1569 1570 2029 2030 2031 2033 2034 2035 2036

John Hartman Persing Dr. John H. Persing grew up in Watsontown, Pennsylvania, just a stones’ throw from the banks of the west branch of the Susquehanna River. It was along this riparian valley that, as a boy, John would spend countless hours looking for arrowheads and otherdiscarded artifacts left behind by the Susquehannock people who lived along the river corridor hundreds of years prior. These early direct experiences with the physical remnants of human history ignited a lifelong passion for antique restoration and collection. As a teenager, John’s interest shifted to automobiles, particularly Model A Fords and early V-8s. A “Ford man” throughout his life, his first restoration was a 1930 Model A Ford that remained his pride and joy throughout his life. It was the one antique car that he continued to drive until his death in 2020. His car restoration and collection would include early brass model T Fords, a first year production Lincoln Continental, and 50’s classics including a 1958 Thunderbird and a hot pink 1955 Sunliner. “Always collect convertibles” he would say, “they hold their value and are just better to look at.” His car collection was arguably one of the finest in the region. After serving in the Air Force as a medical officer during the waning years of the Vietnam War, he returned to Pennsylvania with his young family to start a 46 year medical practice in Lewisburg, Pa. In addition to his growing car collection, Dr. Persing became interested in collecting the intricately decorated furniture of the Mahantongo Valley of south central Pennsylvania. These German-Pennsylvanian artisans created beautifullycrafted corner cupboards and blanket chests featuring a colorful array of tulips, birds, and flowers during the early decades of the 19th century. During the last quarter century of his life, Dr. Persing pivoted his eye once again to the craftsmanship of Pennsylvania long rifles of the late 1700’s and early 1800’s. He collected both flintlock and early percussion rifles from that era and was particularly focused on locating and obtaining rifles from gunsmiths of the region where he lived (i.e. Union, Snyder, Montour, and Columbia counties). The collection represented here comprises over 150 rifles, most in pristine and original condition. Throughout his life, Dr. Persing maintained a deep sense of place and connection to the history and people of the Susquehanna Valley. This collection is a pure manifestation of that sensibility.

Strother Beeson Purdy Strother Beeson Purdy, 88, of Bridgewater, CT, died on May 20, 2021 after a fall in the woods while cutting firewood. He grew up in Purdys, NY, and attended Rippowam School, Harvey School, Phillips Academy, Andover, and Yale University (Class of 1954). He completed his Masters in English at Columbia University, his Doctorate in English at the University of Wisconsin, Madison (1960), and studied Sanskrit in India on a Fulbright Scholarship. Professionally, he taught at the American University in Beirut, then became a tenured professor of English, Linguistics, and Film at Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI. A lifelong scholar, he continued to research, publish, and lecture while amassing an immense book collection. He volunteered in his home community, serving on the Inland Wetlands Commission, becoming an EMT and instructor for the Bridgewater Fire Department and then becoming a paramedic in Danbury and New Britain, CT. Regular Sunday motorcycle trips to Marcus Dairy were a given, with some of the posted speed limits a mere suggestion. He fulfilled a youthful desire to be a fighter pilot by becoming a skilled acrobatic flyer. He owned a Pitts Special acrobatic biplane and a dozen high-end motorcycles dating from the 1950’s to the present. His many adventures included working on local North Salem, NY farms as a boy with a 25-20 handy, motorcycle racing as a young man, and night climbing buildings while at college and in grad school. Guns were one of his many passions and he became a lifetime NRA member. This was encouraged by his grandfather, General John Francis O’Ryan, a noted gun collector, who commanded the New York 27th Division in WW I and later became the Police Commissioner of NYC. Sunday skeet shooting with good friends was the highlight of Strother’s week until the very end.

Robert Craig Dowd Robert was born in Pennsylvania and grew up with a love of firearms beginning with his “Davey Crockett” carved wooden gun he acquired when he was just 3 years old. From early on his passion for firearms increased with a main focus on collecting the rare & unusual examples across several genres. Condition was very important as he acquired hisv collection and he took exceptional care with oiling each firearm & storing them in a climate controlled environment after each trip to the range. Robert worked at Odin International as the Domestic Sales Mngr. and then with F.A.I.R. Trade (Firearms & Ammunition Import/Export Rountable) as Executive Director importing firearms into the United States. After his time at F.A.I.R. Trade, Robert then made the move to Savage Firearms as the Director of Marketing. Robert spent his weekends with Izaak Walton, a firearms instructor, helping youth learn the importance of firearm safety and the enjoyment that firearms can bring. Robert had the foresight to know the importance of collecting ammunition amassing an extremely large selection of ammo for each of the calibers he collected.

Poulin’s is pleased to offer the following lots from Robert’s collection. We hope that you find the same enjoyment from his collection as he did.

Memorial Hall is an historic meeting hall at South Main and Elm Streets in Windsor Locks, Connecticut. Built in 1890 as a memorial to the town’s American Civil War soldiers, it has served for most of its existence has a meeting place for veterans’ organizations, from the Grand Army of the Republic to the American Legion. It is also one of the town’s finest examples of Romanesque architecture, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987. The hall was built in 1888 to a design by Frederick Savage Newman of Springfield, Massachusetts. The building was donated by Charles Chaffee, a mill owner from Monson, Massachusetts whose reason for the donation is not known. The building was constructed out of stone quarried in Monson as a memorial to Windsor Locks’ Civil War soldiers, and was intended for use by the Grand Army of the Republic and affiliated organizations. It is a beautiful building. Chaffee spent $30,000 on its construction. The hall was dedicated to the memory of Major Joseph Hyde Converse of Windsor Locks, who was killed in action at the Battle of Cold Harbor on June 4, 1864, at the age of 26. His brother, Alfred Woods Converse, was also a veteran of the Civil War and survived him. The GAR was very active at the hall for many years; in fact, many of the local Civil War veterans donated their Civil War items used in battle to Memorial Hall for display. Among those donated items were nine rifles made at the Springfield Armory in Massachusetts, all with bayonets. Windsor Locks Civil War veterans served in 16 different Connecticut army regiments during the war. One of these soldiers, Pvt. Frank Ferguson, served as an ambulance driver at General McClellan’s headquarters. His gun is marked as such with white paint on the stock. Judge Arthur F. Eggleston, who served during the Civil War in the 46th Massachusetts Regiment, had this to say about the war veterans from Windsor Locks during his dedication address of Memorial Hall on June 10, 1891: In the forefront of patriotic effort for the Union and civil liberty, were the men and women of Windsor Locks. One hundred and eighty-eight men of this village entered the Union Army, and, from the first battle of Bull Run to the final gun at Appomattox, soldiers from Windsor Locks were engaged in the battles of the republic. They were at Antietam, Gettysburg, and Cold Harbor, at Irish Bend, in the charges of Port Hudson and Fort Wagner, with Sheridan at the battlescourged valley of the Shenandoah, with Sherman “from the mountains to the sea,” with Grant from the Potomac to the James, carrying forward the dear old flag to victory and peace. Seventeen men from Windsor Locks died during the war and dozens of others were disabled. The town had barely 2,000 residents in 1860, so it paid a heavy price for its small size to save the Union.

4001. 1ST MODEL COLT DRAGOON REVOLVER CARRIED BY WILLIAM ROWE, 2ND ARKANSAS CAVALRY AND IMAGE OF HIM HOLDING REVOLVER AND PROVENANCE. Cal. 44. S# 3085. Bbl. 7 1/2” standard configuration, blue & case colors, silver plated grip frame. This is a very nice well documented example known. Soldier personalized revolver w/ iron tack design, small star on left grip & his initials W.R. on right. William also scratched his initials on backstrap “WFR”, “W” on left ear, “F” on top, & “R” on right ear. This was a very valuable gun even in its day & William wanted his name on it. It is very rare to see a photograph of a soldier holding the weapon he carried & he is proudly holding it across his breast in 9th plate tintype wearing enlisted cavalry shell jacket & forage cap w/ crossed saber insignia. It would be quite interesting to know how he came about this early Dragoon made in 1848. William F. Rowe (1843-1917) Born in Prussia, left his mother & father, immigrated by himself to America, landing in Fort Smith Arkansas December 7, 1859 at 16 years old. Enrolled in Company H, 2nd Arkansas cavalry September 7, 1863, & was mustered out Memphis Tennessee, August 1865. He lived his life, died & is buried at Fort Smith where he originally enlisted. When William mustered out in August 1865, he was charged $8 for retaining “pistol”, could this have been the pistol? This revolver was originally a civilian purchased from Colt in 1848. Could it have been captured during the war from Confederates & inventoried as US government property & reissued? There is indiscernible lightly scratched name on the butt w/ last initial “H” & a pair of initials scratched on the triggerguard “EH”. So, who had this gun originally w/ different last name? There is a wonderful article written in the Fort Smith Historical Society Journal in 1980 that is included w/ this lot. It details all the effects of William F Rowe. The article was written by his grandson who was 9 years old when William died, but still had vivid recollections of the war stories he was told. Nicholas J Kelly (1908-1982) the grandson died not long after this wonderful article was published, he had sold this pistol & other items for $3000 in 1970. UNATTACHED ACCESSORIES: accompanying this lot along w/ pistol and 9th plate tintype are US oval belt plate, GAR membership badge, GAR hat insignia, & GAR program from San Francisco 1886, all in shadowbox type frame. Revolver is nicely displayed in beveled casing w/ accessories. 1980 Fort Smith Historical Society Journal, 1970 letter from the Kelly selling the gun to Mr. Hodge along w/ other items.

Fluck contended that 300 Dragoons in the serial number range from 2216 through 2515 were replacements, which Colt was forced to supply for Walkers that had failed in service. These revolvers now are known to be 1848 2nd contract revolvers made by Colt, utilizing the same serial number dies used on civilian Walkers made by Whitney for Colt.

Revolvers are in standard configuration made late 1859 or early 1860 w/ 7.5” oct. bbl., 1 line Hartford address.

The gun that was carried also has a slightly different inset dovetailed front sight, both front sights are original & possibly the German silver blade wore & was replaced w/ this pinched iron variety on 92264. Regardless, rarely offered are such a beautiful cased pair of deluxe engraved & ivory Hartford navies. Appraisal letter from Martin J. Lane.

Session 4 | Nov. 8, 2021

COLLECTOR’S NOTE Only three 1st Model stocks are documented on Colt Navies. These were short lived as not solid like later versions with extensions to butts.

4017. EXTREMELY FINE MODEL 1851 NAVY REVOLVER WITH EXTREMELY RARE MATCHING 1ST MODEL CANTEEN STOCK. Cal. 36. S# 62638. There are only 5 or 6 examples known of Colt factory 1st model cut for stock navies, all made 1855-1856. This coordinates w/ 1st model shoulder stocks for Dragoon revolvers also made 1855-1856. The design for the stock closely follows that of the US Model 1855 pistol carbine w/ 2 prongs extending from the stock yoke to engage 2 slots in pistol’s backstrap & then secured by tightening knurled knob on bottom of yoke. The most common version, which was standard after 1857, required 4 screw frame, slotted butt strap & yoke extension on stock to fit into slot. This earliest 1st model design w/ out yoke & 3 screw frame is more complex to manufacture requiring steel grip frame. Like the other 2 known 1st models, trigger guard is fitted w/ sling swivel as is stock. The special order revolver has Colt factory German silver front sight fitted in dovetailed slot & deluxe burled walnut grips. Revolver has matching serial number 62638 on every part normally numbered w/ exception of loading arm 2639 & cylinder numbered 62689. Unique canteen stock has silver plated yoke w/ matching serial number 62638, silver plated brass buttplate has serial number, probable factory error 62628. Two small sling swivels are fitted in stock, one on yoke & one on oval escutcheon. This is the only example of the 1st model Colt Navy shoulder stock w/ pistol we are aware ever offered in auction. UNATTACHED ACCESSORIES: 6 page R. L. Wilson letter detailing rarity & its discovery in Scandinavia about 1995. CONDITION: extremely fine overall. Revolver retains about 95% bright factory blue on bbl., about 40% blue on cyl., muted case colors on frame, hammer & loading lever. There is rust & pitting on two of the sling swivels on pistol & stock where, according to the accompanying letter, stated original leather sling had been attached for decades causing the corrosion. There is also corrosion on slightly flat trigger bow & other areas on grip frame & one streak on cylinder which does not affect overall aesthetic of this great rarity. Burled grips retain most all of their factory varnish w/ light edge wear but varnish worn through in 2 crescents where yoke attached. Mechanically fine w/ crisp bright rifled bore. Stock retains most of its original silver plate on yoke, buttplate, & rear sling swivel escutcheon. Stock retains 95% original factory varnish w/ scattered small dings & dents & 3” long gouge on right side. Canteen screw in plug & attached chain are intact & functional. (01-19959/JS). ANTIQUE. $20,000-25,000.

4018. PRESENTATION PAIR COLT NAVY REVOLVERS TO GUSTAVUS SNIPER WITH OIL ON CANVAS ESCUTCHEON. Cal. 36. S#’s 111188/111225. This beautiful pair of Colt Model 1851 Navy revolvers are standard configuration & are fine crisp examples w/ identical presentations on backstraps of each revolver: “PRESENTED TO MAJ. G. SNIPER 101ST REGT N.Y. VOLS BY HIS / LATE COMMAND CO. E 51ST REGT NYSM”. Pistols are displayed in mahogany casing w/ accessories. There is a lone monumental equestrian statue in Syracuse, New York & that is of German Emigre Sniper (1836-1894) where he resided. Sniper had local military career, first in the Syracuse Light Guards in 1854 & volunteering in 1861; when the war began as captain of the local 51st NY in Army of the Potomac facing Robert E Lee in the Seven Days battles. Capt. Sniper, 26 years old would return home, marry & start a family, but soon returned to service as Major in 101st NY when these revolvers were presented in February 1862. Sniper would stay in Syracuse though 1863 but would join the newly formed 185th NY in his county as Lieut. Col. & would serve under Gen. Joshua Chamberlain. Sniper’s 185th left Syracuse in September 1864, joining the Army of the Potomac during its siege of Petersburg, Va. The regiment saw action there in skirmishes at Burgess Farm, Hatcher’s Run & Watkin’s Farm. The regiment saw its heaviest action, suffering more than 200 casualties, at a place called Quaker Road on March 29, 1865, as Grant pressed Lee’s right flank. During the battle, Union forces were initially being repulsed. The brigade commander of the 185th, Gen. Joshua Chamberlain, anxiously asked Colonel Sniper if his regiment could “save the day.” Sniper replied “he would try”, and the 185th launched a counterattack. While carrying the regimental flag, the unit’s color-bearer, Benton H. Wilson, was wounded twice. The sergeant of the color-company took over carrying the Stars & Stripes, but was killed in short order. Another member of the color guard seized the flag, but was immediately shot in the hand. Capt. Lathrop next grasped the colors, but was severely wounded in the foot. At this juncture, Sniper seized the flag & shouted, “Men of the 185th, forward!” They rallied, followed the gallant Sniper & the final advance was made, overrunning the Confederate position. Further action for the 185th occurred at the critical Union victory at Five Forks & eventually near Appomattox Court House. It was there, on April 9, 1865, just as Lee’s flag of truce to discuss surrender was being shown, that Lt. Hiram Clark of the 185th became the last man killed in the Army of the Potomac when a rebel shell took his life. Sniper & the 185th returned to Syracuse by train on June 3, 1865 and marched from the station in Vanderbilt Square to welcoming ceremonies in Hanover Square. The tattered remains of the silk flag that Sniper used to rally his men rests at the Onondaga County Courthouse. Sniper was brevetted Brig. Gen. for gallantry shown at the battle of Quaker Rd., March 29th1865. There was always a sincere measure of respect between members of the 185th & the former commander of their brigade, Chamberlain. In June 1899, Chamberlain traveled to Baldwinsville from Maine to address a reunion of the 185th. After the war, Sniper’s reputation as a leader & his popularity among the city’s German-American community propelled him into government service. He served three terms in the state assembly, was elected county clerk and eventually a deputy collector of internal revenue. Sniper died unexpectedly in his North Side home, at 504 Prospect Ave., in 1894, just a few blocks from where his statue would be unveiled in 1905 – a civic project sponsored by local veterans & designed by Syracuse architect Charles E. Colton & sculpture by Frederick Moynihan. Framed oil escutcheon (37” x 31”) details Sniper’s Civil War career & rarely found are these oil on canvas examples, most were on preprinted paper as cost of an original painting was high. UNATTACHED ACCESSORIES: folder of paperwork relating to Gustavus Sniper. CONDITION: revolvers are both very good overall w/ crisp edges & markings, traces of original finish can be found in protected areas, role cyl. scenes are mostly discernible. Safety pins on cyls. all functional, though one is smashed on serial number 111188. Grips retain most of their original factory varnish. Both revolvers are mechanically fine w/ crisp rifled bores. The accompanying casing has soiled & stained lining. The angled spout “COLT’S PATENT” panoply of arms flask retains much of its original varnish. Mold, cartridge pack, cap tin & L-shaped tool are good overall. Casing has partially detached hinges but otherwise is sound. Escutcheon is fair to good overall w/ several sm. holes in canvas, painted text discernible. PROVENANCE: Sniper Family Estate; Vinny Caponi; ex-Tom Carter Collection; estate collection Gary Parietti. (01-19784/JS). ANTIQUE. $7,000-9,000.

I doubt there exists another minty factory engraved model 3 original w/ rnd. nonfluted cylinder. Burnette lists 13 distinct variants, if you want to have 14 distinct variants, this may be your opportunity. There is always exception to the rule especially if they paid extra for custom revolver & casing.

Session 4 | Nov. 8, 2021 4038. PRESENTATION FACTORY ENGRAVED AND IVORY MOUNTED COLT MODEL 1861 NAVY REVOLVER. Cal. 36. S# 18670 IE. Standard configuration. Bbl. 7.5” rnd. Ulrich engraved, silverplated, “certifiable antique ivory” grips, iron backstrap inscribed “Col. Colt to Capt. J.C. Comstock / Hartford Light Guard”. Revolver is featured in a 2013 article in Texas Heritage Magazine. The article states that Comstock, after leading his men at 1st Manassas, became ill & came home to Hartford where the very ill Colt gave his good friend this revolver before Colt would die in January 1862, Comstock died a month later. This gun, however; is quite an enigma as the published serial range would indicate manufacture in 1864, well past Col. Colt’s death. The inscription however appears original. Colt authority R.L. “Larry” Wilson stated in accompanying letter of authenticity “It is possible that as an important presentation, the revolver had such special or rushed attention in the engraving department that a mistaken serial marking was employed. It could also be that Colt wanted the public & the industry to feel that his production numbers [of this new model] were higher than the actual… Colt is known e.g., of skipping serial numbers to make it appear that more pieces were made than actual fact. A prime example of this is deluxe cased & engraved Model 1851 Navy revolver serial number 69367… Since only about 42,000 London navies were produced, the highest serial range of the specimen is hard to explain. Colt fanciers must expect to occasionally come upon unexplainable mysteries of manufacture which spark the imagination.” Regardless, this is a beautiful & attractive original Ulrich factory engraved revolver & is very moderately estimated. UNATTACHED ACCESSORIES: 12 page letter from R.L. Wilson stating the importance of this revolver: copy of article “A Gift for a Friend” from volume 3 Texas Heritage 2013. CONDITION: very good to fine overall. Crisp markings, much of the original silver is present, mostly discernible cyl. scene, all 6 crisp safety pins. Smooth ivory grips are well fit w/ good patina. Mechanically fine w/ crisp rifled bore. Accompanying very good reproduction Colt casing & powder flask display revolver nicely. (01-19826). ANTIQUE. $4,000-6,000. 4039.

4044. HISTORIC AND EXCEPTIONALLY RARE COLT EXHIBITION ENGRAVED GOLD, SILVER, NICKEL AND IVORY SINGLE ACTION ARMY FROM FAMOUS 1876 PHILADELPHIA CENTENNIAL WORLD EXPOSITION. Cal. .45. S# 11089. Standard configuration, manufactured 1874, 7.5” bbl w/ 1-line script address, 2-line 1871 & 1872 patents on left side of frame. Accompanied with letter from noted Colt Engraving authority R. L. Wilson wherein he extols the quality of this revolver and relates its history as he knows it. This revolver appears in full color on pgs. 172-177 & 178 of Colt Pistols, Wilson & Hable; several times in Mr. Wilson’s Colt engraving books, the original and Volume I; in color on pgs. 174, 181 & 305 The Colt Heritage, Wilson; again in Colt An American Legend, Wilson; and on p. 28 Buffalo Bill’s Wild West An American Legend, Wilson & Martin. Like the other exposition guns exhibited in the Philadelphia Centennial display, this revolver is magnificently fully Colt factory engraved. Revolver exhibits known features of both Helfrich & Ulrich which both include elegantly engraved superb delicate arabesque intertwined scrolls, floral & geometric design en suite on every component of revolver incl. nearly full coverage on hammer, cylinder barrel & ejector. In beautiful contrast to the bright polished nickel are gold plated cyl., hammer, trigger guard, backstrap, & ejector housing incl. its spring. Revolver is mounted w/ finest polished smooth 1-piece ivory grips. Adding further to contrasting colors are the brilliant fire blued screws & cylinder pin. This special class of “over the top” decoration is seen only on special display & presentation Colts. The intertwined design as noted by Wilson as “special scroll” is only seen in 1870s & few guns after the Philadelphia Centennial examples. As there are no signed examples or Colt records identifying engraver, the engraver name is speculation though the quality is magnificent. In comparing signed Ulrich arms of this era, Herman Ulrich was most likely the artist, though his brother was chief contract engraver at the time. There is no surviving list of serial numbers of the 18 Philadelphia Centennial Single Actions at center of the famous display. However, there is little doubt that 15 of the serial numbers are known based on Colt “loans” of revolvers for advertising via various expositions from known documents 18771895. The best known of these is dated October 15, 1877 on letterhead of H. & D. Folsom to Colt & lists 12 engraved SAAs in detail & Henry Folsom states in postscript: “They attracted a great deal of attention at the exposition and believe they have been a great advertisement”. This revolver and a few others are all accepted by knowledgeable arms collectors as being part of the Philadelphia display, though few survivors are known. This exact gun, SN11089, can be identified by its photograph along w/ SN 11088, almost identically engraved on the Colt display wheel. This is noted by Wilson in 1987 text “Colt An American Legend”. SN 11088 did not survive in the exemplary condition of 11089 being offered. SN 11086, 11087, 11088 are all listed in Colt ledgers as being “loaned” at various dates after the centennial, so why isn’t SN 11089 listed? We know it is pictured in the display. Wilson delves into reasoning in his accompanying letter. Regardless, this is the one of the best two Philadelphia Centennial Colt Single Actions. The other great example, SN 8928, had its grips changed after centennial display from ivory to wood based on 1877 ledger & photo in the wheel. Colt used these fanciest exhibition guns for promotion & advertising throughout the 19th century as noted by shipments as late as 1897 for at least one of the 1877 Folsom listed guns. SN 11089 is well-known to the collecting community & pictured along w/ 11088 in the 1984 Hable book & no doubt one of the Philadelphia Centennial revolvers. Several of the serial numbered guns on the Folsom list are known shipped on multiple occasions as “loans” for exhibitions. This is among the finest & most elaborate of all known Colt Single Action Army Revolvers, few better will ever come to market w/ such fantastic condition, history, & renowned collection history. Revolver is housed in a custom leather French fitted green velvet lined casing made by Arno Werner. Removable fitted lid is elegantly gold embossed “PHILADELPHIA CENTENNIAL / 1876 / COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY REVOLVER / NO. 11089”.

4085. VERY RARE BULLARD SOLID FRAME MILITARY STYLE SINGLE SHOT SRC. Cal. 45-70. S# 3745. James Herbert Bullard (1842-1914) patented a wide range of inventions. His first repeating rifle patent was granted Aug. 16, 1881. Bullard Repeating Arms Company produced an estimated 2,800 rifles from 1883-1891. These include large & small frame repeaters & both solid frame & takedown interchangeable single shots. The solid frame single shots appeared in 1885. Single shot production was w/in S# range 3501 to just under 4100. Most of the first 175 were solid frames. Only a few solid frames were built w/ higher S#’s after the detachable interchangeable bbl. models were introduced in 1887. The majority of single shot solid frame models were in target rifle or gallery configuration. As early as 1885, the Bullard company sought to secure military orders that would stabilize it’s production. The 1887 catalog lists military models as being available. “Bullard Firearms” by G. Scott Jamieson states “Letters to museums around the world have failed to turn up evidence of a military sale, but if they did secure one it must have been an insignificant one, thus marking Bullard military examples the rarest Bullards of all, with the possible exception of engraved models”. It is known that several experimental military models were produced. These include 2 Hindley pattern repeating muskets that were submitted to the US Ordnance Department in 1888, 1 of these is known to be S# 2529. Also identified is S# 2521, a military style repeating SRC. This carbine has the same buttplate w/ movable lid to expose the cleaning rod holes as found on the single shot carbine in this description. It is further known that single shot solid frame muskets & solid frame carbines were produced. Identified single shots include: S# 3527, a musket w/ non factory cut down forend; S# 3575, a musket w/ 32” bbl. & S# 3528 a carbine w/ 26” bbl., cal. 45-70. All of these have the round top receiver that were primarily reserved for military use. This carbine S# 3745 was only recently discovered, this rare carbine is new to the market. DESCRIPTION: Bbl. 24” rnd. carbine style w/ blade front sight & graduated leaf military rear sight. Bottom of bbl has matching serial number & cal. marking, last 3 digits of S# appear to be stamped over an earlier marking. The solid frame rounded top lever operated action has the martial style hammer w/ a saddle ring & bar on left side. The front receiver ring has caliber marking “45/70” followed by “BULLARD REPEATING ARMS COMPANY / SPRINGFIELD, MASS. U.S.A. PAT. JULY 6, 1886”. Case colored hammer & lever. Many parts including the lever are interchangeable w/ the large frame Bullard repeating rifles. The 3/4 length walnut carbine forearm measures 18” & inserts over a 1” cylindrical hangar in front of the receiver & is held by a single iron band. Straight grip walnut stock. LOP: 12 7/16” over a unique checkered steel buttplate w/ sliding brass lid. When opened, the lid reveals 4 holes containing the 4 piece brass tipped cleaning rod.

This is the only family descended and identified Henry rifle accompanied with an original hard-image photograph of the soldier who carried it, that we are aware of. It was the property of Jacob Guseman of the 6th West Virginia Cavalry. The Henry rifle was a revolutionary weapon, the most technologically advanced weapon of its day, but expensive, cost was several months pay for a soldier. Less than 10,000 Henrys were made during the Civil War. US government bought 1731 from 1863-1865, this is one a few thousand private purchases & among the very few that can be identified from direct family descent. This rifle was purchased from Guseman’s great-great-great granddaughter Tracy Guzeman by our consignor in 2014 along w/ the accompanying locket housing crisp tintype photos of brothers, Henry H Guseman (1840-1917) & Jacob J Guseman (1835-1915), both of whom fought with the 6th.

The Henry was carried and used by Jacob, pictured in the locket with a goatee beard and visible shoulder strap who originally mustered into service as sergeant March 4, 1864 of “E” Co. WV 6th Cavalry. His brother Henry pictured opposite him in locket had joined earlier in co. L of same regiment. Jacob would serve until the entire regiment mustered out May 22, 1866 at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. The locket is housed in old jewelry case with embossed maker “LOAR’ S / Jewelers / Grafton, W. Va.”, Grafton being the hometown of the Guseman family. Loar owned both jewelry and photograph establishments in the 19th Century. The 6th was created from loyal Union mountaineers early in 1864, about the time was rifle was made. The 6th West Virginia Cavalry Regiment was organized from the 3rd West Virginia Infantry Regiment on January 26, 1864. The regiment absorbed the remaining battalion of the 5th West Virginia Cavalry Regiment on December 14, 1864. During the war, the 6th Regiment fought mostly in areas local to Virginia and West Virginia in small skirmishes in the mountain towns and valleys.

Session 4 | Nov. 8, 2021 4104. HISTORIC WINCHESTER 1866 RIFLE PRESENTED TO FRONTIER LEGEND, “CALAMITY JANE” CANARY. Cal. 44 HRF. S# 45383. Calamity Jane was born Martha Jane Canary near Princeton, Missouri in 1856. After moving the family to Virginia City, Montana Territory in 1861, her mother passed in 1866 & father in 1867 orphaning the children. Martha arrived in the Wyoming Territory at a young age in 1868. In 1873, Captain James Egan bestowed on her the nickname “Calamity Jane” after she saved his life during an indian battle at Goose Creek, WY. In June of 1876, Calamity Jane arrived in Deadwood, South Dakota w/ James Butler “Wild Bill” Hickock. After Wild Bill was murdered on Aug. 2nd, Calamity Jane stayed in the Black Hills where she nursed many during the smallpox epidemic. Calamity Jane became the heroin of many dime novels that championed her exploits as a frontier woman, Indian Scout & bullwacker. In 1893, Calamity Jane appeared as a story teller in Buffalo Bills “Wild West Show”. In 1896, she toured w/ Cole & Middleton, wrote an autobiography & performed at the 1901 Pan American Exposition in Buffalo, NY. Martha Jane Canary passed in Terry, South Dakota in 1903 & is buried alongside James Bulter Hickock in Deadwood. After Calamity Jane saved his life, Capt. James Egan ordered this rifle w/ presentation engraving to honor her. As the story goes, Calamity Jane left the rifle w/ an unknown gunsmith in Miles City, Montana & never returned to retrieve it. Speculation is the gunsmith removed the side plates w/ the inscription to Calamity Jane. The gun fell into the hands of Lynel Compiegne, who was a deputy sheriff in Miles City & a pioneer Nebraska cattleman. In his later years, Compiegne moved to Faribault, Minnesota. After his death, the gun passed to his friend Harry B Smith, a banker & insurance man from Faribault. The gun has been the subject of numerous articles over the years starting with the 1957 edition of Gun Digest where it was featured in an article “Collector’s Bonanza, by Major R. O Ackerman”. Smith sold the rifle to Fred Remershied of Osceola, Iowa. On Sept 28, 1957, who sold it to L K Smith. In 1969, A. D. Aspegran of Durr, Kansas purchased it from Smith. Aspegran & later owners have spent the last 50 years advertising & searching for the missing side plates. DESCRIPTION: gold finished third model action, brass receiver has S# in block letters after trigger. Left inside lower tang is stamped “O”. Top tang channel of stock has assembly number “2300”.

Plain non engraved replacement side plates stand in stark contrast to the fine arabesque scroll engraving having punch dot & shaded backgrounds found on the rest of this rifle. Forward portions of both sides of the receiver feature screaming eagle heads surrounded by scroll. Rear portions of the receiver have matching scroll that extends to upper & lower areas of the receiver w/ highlights, borders & geometric shapes.

Session 4 | Nov. 8, 2021 4109. RARE 1ST PRODUCTION WINCHESTER MODEL 1873 RIFLE, SERIAL NUMBER 19, INSCRIBED TO “THOMAS LYONS”. Cal. 44 WCF (44-40). S# 19. Bbl. 24” octagon. Rare first production run of the Model 1873 rifle. Bbl. w/ 2 line address, full magazine, German silver Rocky Mountain front sight & original reverse mounted, short sporting rear sight w/ checkered edges & reverse cut sighting notch. Early forged iron receiver is blue finish & features mortised dust cover w/ 1/2” raised fine checkered thumb print panel. Casehardened lever & hammer. Set trigger without safety block. Bolt is the early type w/ a removable firing pin bushing. Top tang is unmarked & has the rare early feature of two threaded holes for tang sight. Left receiver plate is period engraved “THOMAS LYONS” in script. Mounted w/ nicely figured American walnut w/ crescent buttplate & trap. Original single sling swivel of the period is mounted on the toeline. Assembly number “16” was observed on left side of lower tang under the wood, on top tang channel of buttstock & inside toe of buttplate. Serial number “19” & “Model 1873” on bottom tang are hand engraved in script & lever latch threaded through tang which is correct for the earliest First Models. Accompanied by a 1992 Cody Firearms Museum letter and 2020 Research Sheet which lists this rifle as found w/ set trigger, blued finish, long stock and target 2 3/4 inch. Received in warehouse Feb. 27, 1874 & shipped March 28, 1874 to order #1182. The entry “Long stock” most likely refers to the use of Model 1866 wood on the first run of early ‘73s. It measures 13 1/4” from trigger to center of buttplate which is longer than the standard ‘73 production specification but the same length as the ‘66. Occurrence of the single sling swivel likely a ‘66 remnant & thus not mentioned in records. The notation “Target 2 3/4” is presumed to be test firing prior to being received at the warehouse, resulting in a 2 3/4” group. Target notations are seen in early 1873 records. Only 18 of the first run of 50 guns were received in 1873 & 108 the following year, due largely to issues w/ production & development of the new centerfire .44-40 cartridge. The Model of 1873 was first listed in the 1875 catalog & began advertising to the public in the highly regarded Army and Navy Journal and other periodicals the same year. The sideplate inscription ID is believed to be that of noted Silver City, NM mining magnate & cattle baron, Thomas Lyons, of the 1.5 million acre Lyons & Campbell Ranch. Lyons was a talented machinist & self taught mining engineer who headed west w/ a group of investors from Kenosha Wisconsin to exploit the rich copper & silver deposits of rough & tumble Grant County, NM the early 1870s. A successful businessman, Lyons sold his mining & foundry interests & began to buy up all of the best grazing land in the Gila River Valley w/ partner Angus Campbell in the 1880s. This partnership began their almost 40 year endeavor that would overshadow all other ranching operations in the southwest. In 1917 Tom Lyons was mysteriously murdered in El Paso, TX by a hired assassin. He had been a controversial figure in the region from the onset & likely had many enemies. Several interesting books & various articles outline his legacy. One such book, “Triumph and Tragedy: A History of Thomas Lyons and the LCs”, authored by Lyons’ direct descendants accompanies this lot. UNATTACHED ACCESSORIES: 1992 Cody Museum letter; 2020 Cody Museum Research sheet; Lyon’s book “Triumph and Tragedy: A History of Thomas Lyons and the LCs.”.

Session 4 | Nov. 8, 2021 4293. 45-70 GOVERNMENT THUNDERVALLEY GATLING GUN. Cal. 45-70. S# 1004. Bbls. 31”. A full scale, functional reproduction of the well known 1883 Battery Gun. These guns boasted a large round brass receiver w/ an exposed 10 bbl. cluster. This gun wears a heavy duty circular name plate w/ the original Gatling nomenclature, directly behind the feed mechanism that reads “GATLING’S BATTERY GUN / PAT. NOV 4. 1862 / MAY 9. 1865 / FEB 28. 1871 / APR 9. 1872 / MADE BY COLT’S PT. FIRE ARMS / MFG CO / HARTFORD, CONN. U.S.A.” Running parallel w/ the bbl. cluster are 2 steel frame rails on either side. Right side of receiver rail marked “Thunder Valley Machine Co. Clinton, Ohio. SN 1004 (4 of 6)”. The feed mechanism is the circular Accles positive feed device, & is often referred to as a 100 round magazine though it is not uncommon for them to hold any capacity between 99-104 rounds, (we are uncertain of the capacity on this gun). The gun is mounted on a large tripod w/ 32” legs, positioning itself 28” off the ground at the pedestal. Bottom of legs include integral 7.5” diameter pad for stability. Though it is not identical to the original Colt offering, this appears to be a well made, functional Gatling gun that would find itself a centerpiece in a collection or on the firing line. MAGS: 1 Accles power feed drum. CONDITION: both mechanically & aesthetically, this appears to be in good condition, possibly only having been fired very lightly; the mechanism has been updated to address original weak points. Internals, including bolts & gearing inspected & oiled, fire control mechanism appears to function correctly when cycled by hand, utilizing snap caps, bores retain very good rifling. (20-460/JZ). MODERN. $14,000-18,000.

consign now to take advantage of our aggressive marketing campaign

The Tradition Continues New Facility Same Family & Great Location

Former Auction Facility of World Renowned Hall of Fame Auctioneer James Julia We are pleased to announce the purchase of our neighboring auction facility. This acquisition will give us one of the largest firearms auction compounds in the industry with nearly 50,000 square feet of climate controlled and secured space dedicated to the promotion, presentation and efficient handling of fine firearms collections. Our new facility features a spacious gallery and auction auditorium that was designed for an aesthetically pleasing presentation with modern, state-of-the-art auction amenities..


THE TRADITION CONTINUES...

The tradition continues…. Our company’s roots in honesty and integrity were planted nearly 70 years ago with the auction family’s founders, Arthur & Lilla Julia. In the 1950’s my grandfather, Arthur, ran a successful insurance business. However, he realized that his true calling was in antiques and collectibles. Shortly after starting a small antiques business, Arthur and his family began offering auction services to reach a larger marketplace of buyers. It was not long before the auction firm grew to a popular well attended auction house. As the company grew so did the family’s inspiration to reach a larger audience. In the early 1980’s Arthur’s son, world renowned hall of fame auctioneer James Julia, began to organize the family auction house into specialty divisions. The family business grew to a world renowned auction house and after his final sale in March of 2018 the family’s total sales had reached nearly $800 MILLION.

Jeannine Poulin President

Stephen Poulin Treasurer

As the family business grew, Arthur, his daughter Jeannine Poulin & her husband Stephen Poulin began holding collectibles auctions. The company Julia-Poulin auctioneers guided by Arthur Julia’s core principles of straight forward honest business dealings quickly grew to a well-known regional auction house. As the family businesses developed together so did the interest from the collecting fraternities. By the early 2000’s the two seperate companies began holding auctions in conjunction with one another creating events that drew interest from across the globe. Together the two companies brought numerous famous collections to the market including; Elmer Keith Estate Collection, Evergreen Ventures Collection of Class-3 weapons, Bruce Stern Collection, Richard Rohal Collection, David Crocker Collection, John Houchins Collection, Robert Haskell III Collection, Larry Schlick Collection, Charles Lamb Collection, Lewis & Leyton Yearout Collection, Elliott Burka Collection & many more. As the two companies client bases melded and grew the event did as well. From 2008 until Jim Julia’s final auction in March 2018 the two companies in Fairfield Maine continuously held the largest grossing firearms auction event in the world generating an astonishing $15-25 MILLION in firearms sales per event. Today based on annual sales our auction house (Poulin’s) is one of the top 4 firearm auction houses in the world. Our established impeccable Arthur & Lilla Julia reputation for honest & fair dealings with both buyers and sellers Founders has been instrumental to our continued growth. We offer a unique 30 business day limited guarantee that provides a greater level of confidence from buyers. After Jim Julia’s last auction we are now the only auction house in the firearms auction industry that offers this incredible guarantee. Our recent purchase of Jim Julia’s state of the art auction facility and offices will now provide us with over 50,000 square feet of climate controlled and secure space dedicated to the promotion, presentation and efficient handling of fine firearms collections.


I could not be happier continuing to offer quality auctions in our family’s auction facilities. The presentation and atmosphere has been described by many as “electric”, “exciting”, “inviting”, & “comfortable”. The streamlined handling of collections will continue to allow us to offer the best value to consignors and buyers in the firearms auction industry. Our seller’s commission is the most conservative in the industry. We regularly offer our 0% or better seller’s commission to clients who are taking advantage of our aggressive marketing campaign and ultra-low seller’s commission. Our buyer’s premium of 15% has not fluctuated despite the trends in the industry reaching a 20-25% base buyer’s premium. Arthur Julia taught the family to be honest, modest & fair. As he would explain to me “You do not need to get rich on every consignment. Just make sure that you are pointed in the right direction and look at the big picture.” I hold dear to those words and many others that he shared with me and look forward to continue presenting phenomenal collections and auctions to our clientele. Thank you for taking the time to read this, thank you to all of my family & team that has been instrumental in developing our business, & thank you to my mother & father for everything that you have done to get us to where we are today. Sincerely, Nick Poulin


NOTES


Firearms Buyer Terms & Conditions Please Read

1A. FOR PURCHASERS WHO HAVE ITEMS SHIPPED TO THEM: Should there be a major discrepancy as listed in Item 1 above, a refund may be arranged and the buyer would need to make arrangements for the return within 30 business days of the auction date. Because consignor’s payments are sent out on the 35th business day after the auction, ANY REQUESTS MADE FOR A REFUND AFTER 30 BUSINESS DAYS OF THE AUCTION WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED. Please pay promptly to ensure that you have time to inspect your purchases. If we do not have all of your payment, paperwork or credit card information for the items to be shipped by the 10th business day after the auction you could be jeopardizing your ability to qualify for a refund. Shipments can take 1-2 weeks from the time we receive the entirety of your required payment and paperwork to process and ship due to the volume of clientele that we are processing after the auction. We are not responsible for any liability with the descriptions if we have not received everything that we need to complete the transaction in time for the items to be shipped to you. NO PARTIAL REFUNDS. 1B. FOR LIVE BIDDERS: It is expected that you have examined the items before you purchased them and that as you pick them up, you will re-examine them one last time. If there is a problem regarding condition, it is expected that you would notify us immediately before leaving the auction facility. Also, please check to make sure all components to your lots are there. All possibility of a refund is null and void once you have left our facility with the item(s). 2. WE AT POULIN ANTIQUES & AUCTIONS, INC. WOULD LIKE TO MAKE YOUR BIDDING EXPERIENCE AS PLEASANT AS POSSIBLE: Whether you are bidding live, absentee or by phone, we ask that before you bid in any manner that you satisfy all your questions, so that you may feel confident in placing your bids with us. All the items we offer have been pre-owned, loved, handled and used. Keeping this in mind, we suggest you call us with your inquiries. Please call prior to the first day of the auction, at least 48 hours or sooner, to get any questions and/or damage reports available on the items that interest you. 3. THE AUCTIONEER IS THE SOLE DETERMINANT AS TO WHO IS THE SUCCESSFUL BIDDER: At the Auctioneer’s discretion he may re-offer and resell the article if a dispute arises. Auctioneer’s sale recording shall be conclusive as to who was the successful purchaser and the purchase price. If there is no apparent interest in an item (1/3 of catalog low estimate) or an appreciable opening bid, (when no catalog is printed), the item will be passed from the block by the Auctioneer and will not be re-offered again until possibly a later date. 4. 5.5% SALES TAX must be charged to all successful bidders. * Maine residents who do not present a valid ANNUAL RESALE CERTIFICATE at the time of registration will have to pay the 5.5% sales tax. NO EXCEPTIONS. * Under Maine law, items to be shipped within Maine will have the tax applied. * If you reside in the state of Maine, but maintain an out of state tax number, you must pay sales tax. This is Maine law. * Out of State residents. If you are not a Maine resident, we require a copy of your sales tax certificate or an affidavit (proof of your business, such as business check or card, etc.). Due to the recent Supreme Court ruling, items shipped to some out of state residents may be charged sales tax, if your state requires our company to collect the recipient’s state sales tax.

Terms & Conditions

1. DESCRIPTIONS: We have attempted to make a consistent effort in cataloging and correctly describing the property to be sold. Should the need arise, we will make verbal corrections and provide additional information at the time of sale. A correction to the printed material announced by the auctioneer during the auction takes precedence over printed descriptions. The printed catalog descriptions carry a limited guarantee to protect you against major discrepancies that would have a major effect upon the value of the item. Under no circumstances do we guarantee against anything less than a major discrepancy that would have less than a major effect upon value. Several examples: If we call a Colt a Winchester. Or if we state the firearm is in original finish and it has been re-blued. Percent estimate of finish is an opinion and may vary from individual to individual, so this would not qualify. Not every item included in this auction has been completely disassembled to verify internal component’s origins. However, if we have made the statement that the item is “all matching” or “internal numbers match”, we guarantee that this information is accurate. If an item’s description does not list the status of the internal components we do not guarantee that they are original, matching or that they are period. If you would like additional information concerning internal components of a firearm that does not mention the internal components in the description, please contact us at 207-453-2114 and our consultants will be happy to assist you at their earliest availability. This limited guarantee is limited to what you paid for the item from us and not what you expect to get if you had sold it. Note: It is the sole responsibility of the purchaser to satisfy themselves on the age, authenticity, condition, description and value of each lot before bidding. This includes all bidders whether they be here at the live auction, absentee, phone or internet bidders.

BUYERS PREMIUM OF 17.5% will be applied to all property sold to be paid by the buyer as part of the purchase price and is therefore subject to applicable state sales tax.

PROXIBID, INVALUABLE, AUCTION ZIP, ICOLLECTOR & LIVEAUCTIONEER BIDDERS: These are internet bidding services that are provided by separate companies that hosts our auctions live. They charge us a significant fee to upload to their platforms. They charge 3% to the buyer who utilizes their services. This amount is added into your Buyers Premium on your invoice. 6. RESERVES: Occasionally an item may carry a conservative reserve. Therefore the auctioneer retains the right to bid on behalf of the owner. We will tell you if an item carries a reserve should you inquire.

Terms & Conditions

6A. AUCTION STAFF MAY BID COMPETITIVELY ON ITEM OFFERED FOR THEIR OWN PURPOSES. 7. NAMES OF CONSIGNORS ARE CONSIDERED CONFIDENTIAL and will not be given out unless we have prior approval from the consignor to do so or if the auctioneer deems necessary. 8.

A letter of reference from your bank is recommended to those who have never done business with us before. The auctioneer reserves the right to hold merchandise purchased by checks that have not been pre-approved until we can see that the check has cleared the bank. It is our policy to hold merchandise on all first time buyers, due to our bank’s recommendation of 10 days, until the check has cleared the bank. (This enables the check to clear the bank and if it does not, then it gives them the time to notify us via mail). * There will be a $25 fee charged for all returned checks. * Third party checks are not accepted. Note: Delay in payment, means delay in shipment to you. Delay in shipment to you could mean you lose all possibility of a return, so please make a prompt payment. The speediest forms of payments are credit cards or bank checks. Personal or Business checks from first time buyers will hold the shipment up for 10 business days until checks have cleared the bank. This could jeopardize the warranties of the descriptions if the shipment exceeds 18 business days. 9. OUT OF COUNTRY BUYERS: 9A. Payment must be in the form of either Wire transfers or Checks (made out in United States funds). Credit cards are only accepted for the shipping process. All fees associated with the use of a wire transfer are the responsibility of the purchaser. This includes the $25 fee that Poulin Antiques & Auctions, Inc. is charged by their bank for the international wire transfer. 9B. A payment by wire transfer or bank check qualifies the purchaser for a 2.5% deduction on their Buyers Premium. 9C. All firearms (this includes all antiques, curios or modern firearms), plus edged weapons and any item that has a portion of an animal (ivory, etc..) must go through either an exporter or another FFL dealer that supplies this service.

If you supply an email address, when the bids are processed here, you will then be sent a copy of your processed bids. Please review this and determine if any corrections should be made. Notify us immediately with any corrections or changes you may have. Poulin Antiques & Auctions, Inc. will not be responsible for errors in absentee bids. * If you do not receive confirmation by email/phone within 24 hours of submitting your bids please, contact our office.

Disclaimer: Any advice or opinions provided by Poulin Antiques & Auctions, Inc. or its employees are given strictly as a courtesy and are not a warranty of condition, authenticity, age, attribution or description of said property. 14A. ABSENTEE BIDDING: * Absentee bids must be in by the start of the auction. Please try to get them in at least by 5:00 PM EST the day prior to auction. If you wait and place your bids just moments prior to the start of the auction we do not guarantee that your bids will get placed. * We do not accept +1 bids. * We accept bids that end in 0 or 5 only. Bids that are placed in amounts such as $501.00 or $500.01 will be lowered to the closest amount ending in 0 or 5. We will never raise a bid higher without permission from the bidder.* Bid advances are taken at the discretion of the auctioneer. Miniscule advances will not be accepted and will be rounded down. Typical advances are 5-10% of the current bid level. * A staff member will competitively bid for the absentee bidder. We let the audience start the bidding unless there is more than one bid at the book. If there is more than one bid then the bidding will be started above the under bidders. Example: We have a bid for $1500 and one at $3000. The bidding will then start at $1600 and will then be bid competitively to the limit the absentee bidder set. For this reason it is possible that an absentee bidder may get their item for much less than what they bid. In the case of two bids being the same amount the bidding will start at that amount and the winner shall be the person who left the bid first. * Please note: Being the first ABSENTEE BIDDER does not guarantee that you will be the winning bidder if the floor, phone or internet bidding ties during the live auction. The auctioneer is the sole determinant as to who is the successful bidder. The date and time that you submit a bid only determines the winning bidder between two absentee bidders with the same amount. * We do our best to execute all bids correctly however, errors are made at times. In the event of an error of omission or failure to properly execute a bid, the auctioneer shall not be held liable. * All left bids are considered confidential, and as such the names of the absentee bidders and the bid amounts will not be given out. * Please call prior (at least 48 hours) to the 1st day of the auction to get any information or inquiry reports pertaining to the items. * We will not accept a bid that does not have an amount associated with it. We have had people on occasion tell us to buy the lot for them no matter what it goes for. We suggest that you place a bid substantially higher than the estimate and what you would be comfortable in paying for it. We do not want to be responsible for your personal choice of amount. 14B. PHONE BIDDING: *Phone bidding is allowed, when available, only under pre-arranged conditions determined by and discussed with the auctioneer prior to the auction. * All requests for phone bidding should be made before 5:00 PM EST, prior to the day of the Auction to be sure we can accommodate you within the phone schedule. * After this point we will only accept absentee bids. * All bidding by telephone is solely at the risk of the bidder. * We reserve the right to reject bids on items that we feel may be too difficult to explain by phone. * To be a Phone Bidder you must be willing to start an item for 1/2 of the low catalog estimate or $100.00, whichever is the greater. * Please note: The employee calling you may be calling from a personal cell phone not belonging to Poulins. Because of this it may not show on your caller ID as Poulin Antiques & Auctions, Inc. Please do not attempt to contact the telephone line that has contacted you for phone bidding services, they will not answer. If you have any questions during and after the auction, please contact 207-453-2114 to reach an office staff member.

15. INTERNET BIDDING: Live internet bidding is available with Auctionzip.com, Invaluable.com, Proxibid.com, Liveauctioneers.com and iCollector. These are separate companies that are not owned by Poulin Antiques & Auctions, Inc. * You must submit a credit card with them when signing up to bid. These card numbers are not supplied to us. You will have to contact our office if successful and submit your credit card information to us. * These are bidding services that are provided by separate companies that host our auctions live. They charge 3% to the buyer who utilizes their services. This charge will be included in your invoice Buyers Premium. * Review all lots that interest you at least 24 hours prior to the auction. Sometimes we find a “change” in condition or listing. We cannot notify each person individually, so what we do is remove the photo and place a statement “No bids accepted online. Please call office to place bids.” * Please Note: These online platforms tell you when you are the highest absentee bidder. This is only within their platform. AuctionZip, Invaluable, Proxibid, Live Auctioneers & iCollector do not share bid information and so they do not compare your bids with each other or with bids that we have taken in. If they tell you that you are the highest bidder that is only within their platform, not others. * IMPORTANT: ALL LIVE INTERNET BIDDERS MUST READ THIS DISCLAIMER: Live internet bidding is a fast paced process and can be very fun. However, problems can arise during the process that can result in a purchase or bid being accidently enacted by the buyer or some entity. This could be that your internet/computer speed or a lag in the connection may cause your computer to slow down and then all of a sudden the computer may catch back up, causing the bidding to “jump” to a level that you are unprepared to bid. It could also be that your cat, dog, 2 year old or Martians from a far distant planet in a galaxy far, far away enacted a bid that you were not prepared to place. No matter the reason that may come up it is the responsibility of the bidder to pay for the purchase regardless of the reason. The bidder must log in with their personal log information and in doing so understands the risks that they are taking by participating in live internet bidding and agrees to pay for any and all purchases. Any bids placed by your identity are your responsibility. * If you place absentee bids on these platforms do not ask us to change or void these bids. We do not have control of your accounts within these platforms and so do not have control of your bids. You must change them yourself within your account. If you are having difficulty with this process please contact the platforms that you are participating with for assistance. Most platforms require all changes to be done within 48 hours in advance of the auction start. Check your platform to make sure of the time frame and how to make changes when necessary.

Terms & Conditions

* The staff member that will be on the phone with you during the auction will be very busy concentrating on the current lot, so as not to miss your item that you are interested in. EMPLOYEES ARE DISCOURAGED FROM DISCUSSIONS DURING THIS TIME SO THAT THEY DO NOT MISS THE ITEM YOU ARE INTERESTED IN. Any discussion that takes place can and has interfered with customers bidding in the past. Our employees will be polite and talk to you, but please keep in mind that this could cause them to lose track of your item and consequently miss your bid. We would not want that to happen, so we have asked our employees to keep all conversations extremely brief. * If you would like to add another lot to your bidding, we will TRY to accommodate you but regrettably may not be able to because of other bids that are already arranged in our system and because of time constraints. * Phone Bidding Procedure: An appointed staff member will confidentially bid for the Phone bidder. An employee will identify themselves to you and explain that the Phone bidding will commence when the live floor bidding starts to slow a bit. It is simply moving too quickly to ask for an amount when bids are flying. They will then tell you the amount the auctioneer is looking for. Please answer quickly, loudly & clearly either YES or NO. It can be difficult to hear over the auctioneer so speak loudly. Once done the employee should then Thank you for participating and explain that someone will be calling, emailing or mailing you an invoice after all the days of the auction is done. They will then exit fairly quickly unless you have another bid that will take place within the next 5 items. We apologize if the quick exit seems to insult you in any way, but the employee will be responsible for other phone calls and also will not know the answers to payment, shipping or who will be handling your other bids if any. * Cover Me Bids: To help ensure that you don’t miss out on an object, some people like to place a cover me bid at the time they make phone bid arrangements. No system is perfect and sometimes it is impossible, for one reason or another to get through to the client on the telephone. A “Cover Me Bid” is a bid left only with your phone agent. If he/she cannot get through to you on the phone, they will bid up to that amount on your behalf. The only way they execute this bid is if they cannot get through to you. * Stop Point Bids: A staff member will contact you within 3-5 items prior to the item that you are interested in bidding on. We ask that you consider a “Stop Point”. This is a designated amount you wish the staff member to bid up to on this item for you. Because of the noise level that occurs during an auction, this creates less confusion on the phones for us and our customers. Once they reach this “Stop Point” amount they will then query you for the next desired amount that the auctioneer is asking for. You can then bid higher or stop if you so desire.

Class III Policy Please Read Collecting Class III Weapons can be a very enjoyable and rewarding experience. In the United States, many but not all citizens of the U.S. have the right to purchase and own machine guns. This is true in most states of the United States, but not all states. It is your specific responsibility to determine your right to own and possess a Class III weapon before you bid on it. Once you have bid on a lot and won it, you are responsible for payment of that lot, regardless of whether you can own it or not. If you have purchased a lot and later find out that because of the state you live in or for other reasons that you cannot personally own it yourself, you will still be required to pay for the object and we will obviously have to sell it for you again at a future sale.

Terms & Conditions

First and foremost, All NFA Rules Apply. All Class III firearms must be registered and properly transferred in compliance with BATFE rules. Class III Firearms we may be dealing with include the following: Machine Guns (MG), (Transferable, Pre86 Dealer Samples and Post-86 Dealer Samples), Silencers, Destructive Devices (DD), Short Barreled Rifles (SBR), Short Barreled Shotguns (SBS) and Any Other Weapon (A.O.W.). If you are an individual who resides in an area where these firearms are legal, you may bid on these items. You are responsible for knowing your State and Local laws.

In order to complete the purchase of a Class III Firearm to a non-licensed individual, you will need the following: • 2 passport photos • 2 sets of fingerprints • 1 ATF Form 5330.20 Certificate of Compliance and the appropriate BATFE Form completed in duplicate including the signature of your local Chief Law Enforcement Officer. Poulin Antiques & Auctions, Inc. will supply all the proper forms upon acceptance of your winning bid. If there are any State or local forms required you will be responsible for obtaining these. Regardless of the specific type of Class III Firearm, completing the transfer to an individual usually takes approximately 90-300 days from the time they receive the completed paperwork. Transfer to a licensed dealer (FFL/SOT) is usually approximately 60-90 days. If you are a non-licensed individual the BATFE transfer fee for all NFA firearms (Machine Gun, Destructive Device, Silencer, Short Barreled Rifle, and Short Barreled Shotgun) is $200.00 with the exception of those narrowly classified as Any Other Weapon (AOW) which has a transfer fee of $5.00. AOWs may include pen-guns, cane guns, and certain pistols with vertical front pistol grips. These fees must be paid to Poulin Antiques & Auctions, Inc. before any transfer paperwork can be submitted to BATFE as well as any other outstanding balances related to your Class III firearm purchase. Please look into your own particular state law ahead of time when contemplating a bid. For more specific ownership information on NFA firearms, please visit the website of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives directly at www.atf.gov. If you are an individual (Non FFL/SOT) and reside in the State of Maine, we can transfer the firearms to you directly on an approved BATF Form 4 (subject to above rules) if you are the winning bidder. If you are an individual who resides in another State we will need to transfer the Class III firearm to a Class III Dealer in your State to complete the transfer with you. Please understand that there is usually an additional fee from this third party for them to handle your transfer.

Remember, it is your responsibility, prior to the purchase, to make certain that you may legally purchase and possess a Class III gun or item. (207) 453-2114 | info@poulinauctions.com
