I picked up an 38-40 1873 w/ an inscription scribed into the brass.

Serial number: 298615B

I believe it says:

”Y. 1899, Larry Nolan”

It came out of central New Hampshire but it’s only been in that family for a couple decades (or so I was told), so I don’t know it’s history or or to that. 

I intend to try to figure out who Mr. Nolan was if possible. I wondered if his name rings a bell with anyone here. I realize it’s a long shot, but can’t hurt to ask.

I don’t think your going to have any luck unless you can come up with a town name to start your search with.

I found it interesting to see similarities between the way the “y” was written in comparison to the way y’all are written from that era.
