LUGER PISTOL (Formerly the property of Michael Collins)
The rebels of the 1916 Easter Rising in Ireland and Michael Collins believed that only violence could secure Ireland's freedom from British rule. Collins and his colleagues were eventually successful but he was assassinated in the ensuing Civil War in 1922.
"Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned"
