Holland and Holland, London. Magnificent and absolutely unique matched pair of “1985 Sesquicentennial Royal de Luxe” double rifles in .470 NE embellished by master engraver Phil Coggan, ca.1985. Each rifle weighs in at 9 Lbs. 9 oz.  Stock Dimensions: 14 3/8”x 1 ¼”x 2 ¼”x ¼” cast-off (the second rifle identical except LOP is 15”).  24” chopper-lump steel barrels with quarter rib. Rear sights have one standing leaf (50/100 yd) and one folding leaf (200 yds). Ramp front sights with folding twilight bead. Classic Holland, hand-detachable sidelock, actions with bushed firing pins, hidden third fastener, and ejectors are engraved in elegant bold scroll and stunning bulino game scenes depicting elephant and cape buffalo. You will notice that the locks are photographed with standard lock screws, however, each gun is accompanied with the typical Holland hand-detachable screws in a separate compartment within each case along with spare firing pins for each rifle. This magnificent pair of rifles was made to order for two brothers who, for whatever reason, never got a chance to use them and they both remain in pristine, unfired, original condition throughout. Absolutely unique!
