Spanish Miquelet flintlock pistol with golden barrel makers stamp IE MAS, man-stopping caliber .75, 6" rounded and swamped barrel, well made and interesting brass decoration with beastly looking face on butt, fully shafted and nicely shaped, convenient side hook for belt. Made during the 18th century from the not very refined steel available at the time and now showing some pinpricks. Attractive, with a strong spring in good  working order and compared to most other pistols found in very good condition.    $1,950.
