Delvigne Breech Loading Underhammer Deringer in 9mm Pinfire

Delvigne Breech Loading Pinfire Derringer

This Delvigne Breech Loading Underhammer Deringer was Manufactured by Falisse & Trapmann in Liège, Belgium. It follows Delvigne’s French patent, 12683, which was issued on 22 January 1852. The patent image shows a percussion version, and this is the only pinfire version that has been discovered so far that I know of.
