Flintlock pistol supposed to have been owned by Captain J. Cook (1763-1805). The walnut stock is fully stocked to the muzzle and is inlaid with traces of gold wire to form decoration below the tang. The pistol has a brass trigger guard, two brass ramrod pipes (the ramrod is missing), and a brass butt cap. The pistol is flintlock but most of the lock is missing. The brass barrel is octagonal and for half of its length is decorated with double line engraving and scrollwork. The Museum also has in its collection Captain Cook's Lloyds Patriotic Fund vase, his gold medal (MED0156), his sword (WPN1001) and his dirk (WPN1059). For a portrait of Captain Cook see BHC2629.
