Way cool.  I guess I'll have to buy them when I hit the lottery tonight.

Cap'n,

Thanks so much for posting that link! Very intrigued with the Sisterdale (Texas) pistol.

This is the first time I have seen a good picture of this home-built "hybrid".

The rarest and less known of all Confederate revolvers is probably the gun of which only 6 were home made by the Dr Ernst Kapp in his own farm shop, which was located outside the village of Sisterdale, Texas.
 
Only six revolvers were produced, of which only one is known in the world today. First the property of Miss Otto Coreth, it was long exposed in the Museum of Sophienburg near New Braunsfeld, of which this lady was the caretaker. Today it is in the infamous collection of Charles Schreiner lll of Kerrville, Texas.


More info here from the French site.

I had ordered a copy of William Albaugh's "Confederate Handguns" from an outfit on Amazon but I guess they don't update their website often and it was out of stock. I will try another source.

Cap'n,

I have registered and been accepted on the James D. Julia site, have changed the register password to my password, and have logged in.

I still cannot get any specifics (as is usual with the posts other people have posted about JDJ lots) insofar as description or opening bids, etc.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Jim

I dunno, Jim...I am not a registered user there. JDJ auctions are a little outside my tax bracket. I just go there to D&D (dream & drool)
