Note of the specialist

It acts of a pair of pistos of voyage to percussion and originally to flint.

The sticks in drowning squared are of type worsens and the guns in Damas.

Mark LEHANNE on the guns corresponds to an arms manufacturer family of HERVE (province of Liege), it should act of Louis Léonard LEHANNE whose dates of life correspond perfectly to the weapons!

The frips being thus of type worsens, we can deduce from it that these weapons were manufactured at the beginning of the XIX E century.

At that time, we find the LEHANNE following:

- Guillaume Joseph street of corner 18 in HERVE (life 1753/1826)

- Louis Léonard son of precedent (born 05/02/1784 and deceased in 1830)

- Jean Baptist brother of the precedent, born 31/07/1797 and deceased in 1848) It also lived street of the Corner, 18 in HERVE.
