Manufactured in Philadelphia. Model "E" 1000 Shot Air Rifle.
With thanks to Beth of Amoskeag Auctions, Inc. for permission to post these pics.
The original auction blurb said: "34 1/2" overall. This rifle is in wonderful condition with all metal surfaces retaining 97% original nickel plated finish. The slab wood stock rates excellent with about 95% original finish remaining which has crazed somewhat and has a nice old appearance. The left side of the butt is neatly marked "L.L.". A wonderful little rifle that the Blue Book estimates "perhaps over 50 specimens known"."
