Description
This is an early Brown Mfg. Co. Model Southern Derringer single shot .41 Rimfire caliber pistol signed in Togia Language carvings by the former owner Chief Buffalo Scout. The revolver features a steel frame with brass finish. The pistol is marked on the top, “Southerner” and on the left side by the manufacture the Brown MFG. Co. of New Buryport, Mass. The firearm was manufactured circa 1867-1873. The pistol is fitted with the factory original rosewood or dark walnut grips showing excellent original Togia Language carvings. The pistol has been examined and authenticated by renowned historian and Togia language expert, Wendell Grangaard of The Guns of History, Inc. Marked on the left side of the wood grip in Togia Language carvings, “Buffalo Horse”. Buffal Horse was a Brule Teton Lakota Sioux Native American Warrior born in 1827 and was the Brule War Chief of the Upper Brule tribe, the Orphans. This band traditionally hunted in the Powder River county. His band mark was the Sicangu band of Orphans. Chief Buffalo Horse rode with Hollow Horn Bear, Crow Dog, and Fool into The Battle of the Little Bighorn in Montana Territory in 1876. Here is the testimony from Hollow Horn Bear as told in the book “Lakota Recollections of the Custer Fight” by Richard Hardoff, page 178. War Chief Buffalo Horse and I rode at a trumpeter and killed him with my stone war club. I got his revolver and ammunition belt. Buffalo Horse got his horse, with a carbine on it” (the author noted: This Revolver, SN 3587, a Colt Single Action, belonged to trumpeter Fredrick Walsh, Company L, 7th Cavalry. On the left grip of the revolver, is the togia mark of Fool Bull, and a letter “W” for Walsh). At the Battle of the Little Bighorn, Buffalo Horse carried a Henry Rifle that was hit by a bullet that destroyed it, he later traded some buffalo hides to the Slotas for a Winchester Model 1873 rifle SN 13065 which he marked in Togia, then carrying it into the Battle of Wolf Mountain. Buffalo Horse and his family surrendered at the Spotted Tail Agenxy on Beaver Creek, among the 390 Brule Sioux who surrender in May and June of 1877. See the book, “Documenting the Weapons Used at the Little Bighorn” page 78 for more information on the Brule Sioux Camp at Little Bighorn. The pistol comes with the signed letter describing the piece’s history from Wendell Grangaard along with detailed illustrations showing the markings he has translated. Wendell Grangaard is the foremost knowledge on the Togia language along with the Battle of the Little Bighorn as he is the author of the book, “Documenting the Weapons Used at Little Bighorn” 2015. Wendell was also intricate in the authentication and examination of the historic George Armstrong Custer Captured Sharps Carbine from Chief Black Kettle that sold at auction for $127,000. Comes with documentation including a detailed description authenticating the piece signed by Wendell, along with illustrations showing the Togia language carvings along with some information about the Winchester 18736 also owned by Buffalo Horse.
