This month we feature a unique pistol bayonet / sword combination. In fact it is an extremely early rare Patent that survived the great fire at the Patent Office.

The Elgin Cutlass Pistol is a unique collectible in itself. In the best tradition of a follow-up melee this piece was meant for fighting. Lucky is the collector who owns one of these rare items. We always consider early patents as rare finds due to the fire but the find of a first year patent is fantastic. This one is in great condition at the Patent office, lucky we are all.
