Tuxedo Black-Made Italy

Post by skirmish »

Another rescue from the depths of the internet. In amazing shape and less than a tank of gas. I love fresh finds.

That's what I have been looking for. An 11" black horn. That's a nice one. Great score.

It's a clean beauty! The lock tab looks like a picklock. It's a swivel bolster??

Just for the record,… it’s a picklock. Not sure why someone would think otherwise?
