This large size boot pistol with walnut grips doesn't have any markings, but from the style appears to be USA made. The under-hammer percussion pistols were popular because the triggers didn't get caught when withdrawing them from their hiding place in a gentleman's boot. Because of it's size and the thickness of the barrel this particular pistol may have been used in law enforcement. Aside from being able to shoot, it would have been a formidable weapon when used as a club...

This as a rare, British made boarding cutlass/lance c-1750. It has a rich warm brown patina and you can see the maker's name (W. Gilpin) stamped on the back. The grip is hollow so you can insert a long pole into it and then pin it into place through the hole in the handle. With this method it was used as a lance, ship to ship. When the pirate was finally able to board the other vessel, he just pulled the pin from the handle, dropped the pole and viola!.... he had a cutlass.
