Engraved Leaf Pattern
The New Model Army worked in the Engraved Type 1 pattern is the first example of the engraved model. Up to now, no information could be found about the engraving style. Relevant production dates and the number of revolvers engraved also remain uncertain today.
Thanks to the World Wide Web, we have initiated contact with the originator of the site http://poudrenoire.free.fr and have downloaded from there a few interesting photos. Now we are finally able to present the still missing link in the chain.
