EIBAR/SAN SEBASTIAN. Accion de 500 Pts. yellow, orange, brown, green. #2000. No 938. The Spanish Basque region of Eibar has been a centre of weapons production for centuries. Pistols have been made by the Echeverria family since before the 1900s. Bonifacio Echeverria entered his father's business about 1905, and the business continued to make a range of pistols, often for orders from governments, in Spain and abroad. In 1919 this company was founded, and the 'Star' brand registered. The company's story for later years is not well-known. The final years at Star saw a range of new models, but court and banking problems. In 1993 it filed for bankruptcy protection, but not until 1997 did the company finally close its doors. Elegant share, with a large underprint of a 'Star' pistol, and a simple but tasteful border with roses.
