Star Model F .22 LR. Serial number 385058 was presented to George von Rosen by famed gunwriter Colonel Charles Askins Jr., on July 23, 1967. (The former, having founded Guns Magazine a decade earlier, was Askin’s publisher. This pistol is consigned by the estate of von Rosen’s son, to whom it was passed.) An included brass plate stands as testament to the presentation. The single action pistol features a 4.5-inch barrel, thumb safety and two factory magazines. The original box is present, although only in good condition and separating at the hinge. The end label is correct. The pistol itself shows at least 98 percent condition, seldom fired (if at all) and with but modest handling wear. PROVENANCE: A personalized letter from the von Rosen estate representative will be provided to the purchaser.
