Here is Ron Gabel's answer to question number 5556

Question:

I have a old black powder and ball pistol that I am looking for it's history and a estimated value. it looks like perhaps a 50 cal ball...rifeled barrol. I do not see a s/n any where on the gun. It has "Moore & Harris, Birmingham" stamped on top of the barrol. It has been in a friends family since his great grandfather brought it over by ship from europe and made its way west by covered wagon. I think it could be a 1840's vintage out of England. But that is all I can find out. Thank you for any help you may offer on this issue.

Answer:

Moore & Harris of Birmingham Great Britain circa 1840 - 1864.
