.60 caliber, 10" wedge-retained octagonal barrels, no S/N. Damascus patterned brown barrels, case hardened locks, iron furniture, horn forend tips, walnut stocks with checkered grips. Lightly engraved percussion locks with sliding safeties marked H Nock. Hocked breeches with gold bands and clean-outs screws in the bolsters. Barrels marked LONDON on top with Birmingham proofs underneath. With wood ramrods, one missing the brass tip, which have jags and ball pullers at their ends. As Henry Nock died in 1804 and these guns clearly date to the 1830s-40s, they may be the work of James Wilkinson who took over Nock's business.
Very good. Both pistols retain much of their brown Damascus patterning on the barrels. Markings remain clear. One lock needs attention as it does not alway hold at full cock, otherwise both mechanically functional. Smooth bores about good, with moderate oxidation and some pitting. Stocks with wear, bumps, dings and mars. One pistol with a chip out on the obverse forend and chipping to the horn tip. The other with crack through the lock mortise and bottom of the stock.
