Framed Adams Small Arms Co Receipt Antique 1864.
This fascinating receipt is from the Adams Small Arms Company and dated 1864. In many ways Adams was the Colt of the UK and gained key contracts to supply the British arms with his designs. Adams was to split with the arms company he first formed in the early 1860s and reinvented himself as the Adams Small Arms Company in 1867. Therefore this receipt of 1864 is for £20 of speculative shares in this brand new venture. The frame is new.
Dimensions of frame: 29 x 18 cm or 11.4 x 7.1 inches.
Weight: 460 grams or 296 penny weight.
