Not my auction (or area of interest), but looks like a good price for a somewhat rare item.

Two listings:

1 groove in the brass or steel base identifies a Single Star. Green case = green colour.

Thanks! Decided to bid on one of them (though I have had lousy luck on gunbroker lately!).

Looks like they both sold in the low/mid $300s.

I have some in the same mint condition. Both the green and white. I also will sell them for the $ 330. plus shipping. They are quite rare, I have sold a number of them for $400 - 500 at gun shows, but closing out the last from my collection at the $330.
Guns have only two enemies, rust and politicians.


I am still looking for ANY information regarding the European Use of the Original Costons flares from 1859 through 1881. Photo's, Patents, contracts & orders, ANY INFORMATION IS NEEDED ! !
