A very rare and guaranteed original 6 dial game counter by James Dixon & Sons Sheffield. Six dial counters are extremely hard to find and, unlike the four dial counters, have never been copied in India. This particular one sold in Bonhams Sporting Guns Auction in July 2009 for £2717 including commission etc.and still retains the Bonhams auction label. There has been a recent drop in the UK market for game counters, as a result of Indian manufactured fakes appearing, and so we were able to buy this counter from a collector for a very keen price. It is now for sale at a price significantly less than it sold for 6 years ago and represents a great buy at the bottom of the market. It is guaranteed to be of 19th Century manufacture. Very good condition and complete with the original leather strap.

A rare game counter or shot counter as used on the large British sporting estates in the late Victorian or early 20th Century.

Each time the top lever is pressed the counter moves on one. Excellent condition.

The nipple key has two prongs for the type of pistol nipple with two slots and the rammer has a concave domed end to support the bullet. I have never seen one like this before. Very well made and obviously intended for a better quality revolver of some kind. Good condition.

A very rare accessory for the Martini Henry .577/450 rifle which is described in a Bonehill gun catalogue dating from the 1880's as a barrel cooler. The photo of the catalogue shows how it is used. The mouthpiece is bone and the metal part is nickel plated. The flexible rubber tube has been replaced with a contempory cloth covered rubber tube of correct pattern but the cloth woven covering is fraying at the ends. A very rare accessory for the keen Martini rifle collector or shooter.

A very rare pair of ivory Life Members passes for the National Rifle Association issued to a man and wife Mr. and Mrs. A. Rosling dated 1905 and 1911. Interestingly Mrs. Rosling's pass is the earlier of the two. They are made from ivory and hand engraved with the NRA badge and the Life Members name. They are also signed in ink by the Secretary of the NRA at the time. I would think that female Life Members passes dated from the early 1900's are relatively scarce and even rarer when sold with the husbands pass. Excellent condition and a rare opportunity to obtain a family group of NRA passes.
