Hi everyone,
I have come into possession of this Derringer. It looks to be a knock-off as it is stamped "DERINGE" with a faint final letter to look like a worn down "R". It is not marked PHILADELPHIA so I do not think it is an original Deringer. Does anyone know who may have produced it or what it may be worth? Any help is appreciated.

I also own the muzzle loader that is pictured if anyone has any info on it.

Allen,

Not sure the derringer is a knock off. You may have an orginal. All of the later copies of that pistol that I am familiar with (and there are plenty with which I am NOT familiar) are just a bit bulkier in appearance. Yours has an elegance about it.

"Minchen" or "Munchen" depending upon what part of Germany your are from, is the German spelling of Munich.
