Georgia "G" Stamped M1854 Austrian Lorenz Rifle !!!
Minty/Best Specimen of the MERE HANDFUL of Wartime GA State Ownership-Stamped "G" Surviving Today
From THE 25+ Year Lorenz/Austrian Collector & Authority, Mr. Randy Portell's Personal Collection!!!
This "G" Stamping is NOT from Importation Stamping (i.e. JS/Anchor, Buttplate-Numbering, "G"-stamped Enfields)
THIS was done BY SPECIAL ORDER of the State of Georgia (Governor Brown & the State's Adjutant Inspector General in January, 1864, right before the Atlanta Campaign) to Mark All Longarms with the Small "G" Stamping to Ensure it's Ownership to Georgia
THIS Specific order/information as to "when" and by "whom" in Georgia will BE REVEALED shortly in Publication...but as ANYONE intimate in the CS Importation/Marking Arena already knows...there are several of these Well Noted (College Hill Arsenal recent specimen, I've had FOUR, myself), & not Just Lorenz's, but Several Myriad of other Long Arms marked w/this small "G" Ownership Stamp
100% Original, Complete, Fully-Functional, "MINTY"!
TRULY Museum-Quality, Best Condition Specimen IN EXISTENCE, for the Hardcore GA/CS Collector
