Uncle Sam Said Git Cap Pistol
Unknown American Manufacturer. Pat.'d June 1898 - 4 3/4" Long. Gertrude Hegarty Collection. This rare and important cap pistol draws inspiration for its imagery from the military & naval details of the Spanish-American War. The far side of the gun says "Dewey - Remember the Maine - We Do - We Did It". This is one of the most historically significant playthings created in the 19th century. A very rare chance to acquire one of the greatest cap pistols in existence.
