Here is something that you don't see very often. It is an original patent model for a firearm improvement that was patented in 1864. The piece measures 7-1/2 inches by 2 inches in overall size. It is created of wood and metal. The piece was patented on August 16th, 1864. This is what was used for attaining the Ball's patent for a lever-action firearm included an improvement for the feeding system that loaded the cartridges from the magazine into the receiver, as well as a novel method of extracting spent casings via a "rack bar" and an "Impelling and retaining pawl." Here is the link to see the entire patent information: https://patents.google.com/patent/US43827 . The piece is incomplete condition but there isn't another so this is your only chance to own one. Most of the original model's mechanical parts are missing, with some additional wood loss to the rear of the receiver. It is accompanied by the 2 original paper tags from the patent office. The large tag has the patent date as well as the patent number and title. What a great little piece of firearm history!
