Ancion Dieudonné & Cie

Model Albini Braedlin

The mark "1867 - crowned DA" could very well  stand for  ANCION Dieudonné et Cie manufacturer of weapons in Liege (BE 1842/1867) and which later became  ANCION Dieudonné Fils (BE 1867/1873).

As a matter of fact, this matches both with the initials and years (1867).

From 1844 to 1871 , this company will register/patent thirteen  inventions concerning improvements on breech loading revolvers and firearms  as well as the development of a threading and barrel breeching lathe.
