Pawn Stars and the Curse of Oak Island are two hugely popular TV shows which in my opinion are highly questionable as to to their "reality". Having said that, I was greatly intrigued by this episode. The revolver displayed has an engraving that I strongly feel is original to the gun. The engraving is in period script, with a matching patina among other identifiers. I have no idea what an un-engraved D-Miller pistol of Civil War vintage in good+ condition is worth. I'll wait for our gun experts on the forum to chime in on value. But I will tell you that whatever the forum experts say you can at least triple the value for the shown piece. Perhaps much more. It's a great artifact.
