Addendum 12/27- After careful examination, I looked closer discovered this piece does indeed have a serial number(1768) and Patent date of Feb 13, 1900 on the reciever under the barrels. The SN is stamped on the barrels as well as the caliber 32-40 on the rifle barrel.I spoke this evening with an advanced collector of these rare guns who is quite knowledgeble. This company started out as The Hollenbeck Gun Co. in West Virginia. It made custom made 3 barrel drillings. It went out of business and re-orginized as the Three barrel gun company, which also failed and briefly re-organized as The Royal Arms Company. All companies made the same gun which were sequentially serialized. This piece is a Royal Arms Co. Gun and the rarest of the three. See the new issuue of Fladerman's on pg 747.
