AN EXCEPTIONALLY RARE .22 BENJAMIN CENTENNIAL MODEL MULTI-PUMP PNEUMATIC AIR-RIFLE, serial no. 000103,
manufactured by the Benjamin Air Rifle Company for the proclaimed 100th anniversary of the firm in 1987, with gilt-washed brass 19in. barrel, blade fore-sight, gilt-washed brass bolt-action receiver fitted with a 'Williams' peep-sight, gilt washed brass pump-housing, figured plain American walnut butt-stock and fore-end, gilt washed furniture, appearing unused in its special padded sleeve with papers

Provenance: Benjamin's original idea was to build enough of these anniversary air-rifles to satisfy every State in the USA. Sadly, demand fell far below expectations and it is believed less than 400 were ever produced (probably far less), with only a handful finding their way to the UK. The whole 'centennial' title was a bit of a misnomer, as Benjamin's actual centenary was not due until 2002
