    This is one of the paper weights I use on my desk, from 1800s, I'd like to share with you.

    British gun maker I. Hollis & Sons made fine shotguns and double rifles 1860~1900, this is one of the original sidelock of a muzzle loader from the early days, the two original leaf springs are still working.
