Look like #1 possibly #2 proof marks. Other big collectors tell me its #1. Also somebody engraved 1724 on butt.

    Seems like the pictures were taken with flash in a darker environment. Better to take pics under LED lights to showcase the details and then closeups with any markings on the pistol/firing mechanism

    Is that a.62 caliber? French Dragoon, possibly?

    It has English proof marks though. We think it was a French maker that relocated to England possibly.

    Well that's pretty interesting. I assume the records wouldn't be easy to find if they existed at all.
