Very Nice Mike. A couple presentation cases are on my wish list so I can house some of my pocket models.

Here is a factory engraved 1849 Pocket made in 1856. This engraving likely came from Gustav Youngs shop, from one of his apprentices.

The engraving itself is faded, but much of it is still there. I was disapppointed that only about 30 to 40% of the cylinder scene remains. Apparently, this pistol was cleaned at one time. It does have a nice patina on it. I have posted here only choice photos of the engraving. This is as close I will come to an engraved pistol with all of the engraving intact.
