Based on the location of and the serial number it would be for a large ring hammer. The door/butt has been cut out where it would have been notched for the hammer. I believe Conehammer stocks are numbered on the hindge.

If you are asking about value - not much, as it had been altered on the body and on the lid...I would say about $300-400?

mouser is right. It's a stock for "shallow milled large ring hammer pistol". I have such a thing for sell, you can compare with that one, same type of stock.

By the way, if want to sell this stock, ..., I sold a flatside pistol 30xxx to a forum member back a few months ago. Unfortunately, that nice gun has no stock. If still has no stock, this stock will be good for that gun. Both were made in 1901.

Not really. 9 out of 10 conehammer stocks are numbered on attaching iron. Only early 3-digit ones were numbered on hinge. For low 4-digit conehammer 1xxx, or, Turkish,,, I have never seen one coming with matching stock. I bet they were numbered on attaching iron too. When serial reach 2xxx, the number definitely should be on attaching iron.

This one, #2198, is a typical 2xxx gun (selling point is that eagle stamp). The stock is typical too. Correct for sure.

Alvin,
I seem to recall seeing a stock with a 5 digit number on the hinge.
