The weapon presented is a revolver of pocket hammerless to embedded trigger and without extractor, the introduction of the ammunition being done by a door placed on the right side of the carcass.
It carries the punches of the bench of test known well, as well as the mark of manufacturing L.H. surrounded of a laurel wreath which is well that of Louis Halleux (appendix with the gazette of Arms manufacture inhabitant of Liège of 1910.Il is possible that the mark 1900 is the date of manufacture but without certainty none.
It also carries the engraving of a large Parisian "arquebusier FAURE LEPAGE & FILS" to PARIS. That is not astonishing because even the great names of the French arquebusery came to be provided in Liege because of the keen prices practised at the time.
