If your serial number is 6950... then it is 1881. There are gaps in sequences and some number sections may not have been used... see Dallas H&H book. The case may very well be the original case as the gun may not have left the shop, or case made for it , until two years later. Not unusual.

This is a close to the top class gun, very elegant.
I think that 1883 makes sense. For once, Holland & Holland was called as such starting in 1876.
N. Brown shows it as 1881, but a quick call to H&H will give you the answer.
Best regards,

Greg, sorry, but I can't give you any definitive value; just not enough comparables. I can say H&H is Brand Value one (BV1). I'm inclined to call Current Condition level at three (CC3 = significant use). Original Quality grade I'd place at "Best Work" to "A". Later hammerguns tend to grade like boxlocks. But I think this gun falls outside the "tend".

BV1-OQ3-CC3 = $10,936
BV1-OQ4-CC3 = $8,323
BV1-OQ5-CC3 = $6,296

Somewhere within that range. Hope that helps a little. I'd love to see comparables with known sale prices.

Can't tell for sure from the photos but I'd sure check out the firing pin holes for roundness and corrosion.

It is a nice tarted up hammer gun but unless the barrels and choking are something really special I don't see the gun being worth over 3 or 4 grande.

As a patent lasts for 16 years then that suggests the gun as made between 1865 and 1881 although the action could have been made prior to that before it was finished .The 29229 would be the registered action built under or using the patent so that would IMHO make it at the end of the patent period and from the style of the action I would estimate around 1880 .
