Sam Edwards’ typography book explores the language of “lonely hearts” ads throughout history.
A Swiss made pistol usually seen in 9x19mm, although a few other calibers were available. It’s design and silhouette mimic an older French pistol, but the P210 incorporates some aspects of the Luger. Single action only with a single stack magazine, it’s known for its extreme accuracy.
SIG did bring it back as the P210 Legend but it’s priced almost as much as an original; around $2,000+. Note that the ones in the photo have the European style magazine release at the bottom of the grip. The Legend version has a frame mounted magazine release like more modern pistols.
Colt Single Action Army
One of the most famous if not iconic revolvers in American history. This particular example is supposedly an original, first generation model from 1915 according the seller. Heavily engraved, with gold plated accents, overall its done well but its price, even though reflective of the craftsmanship, is probably too high for it to end up selling. With a “Buy it Now” of $7,000, I’d be surprised if it sold for that much.
