Created by Frank D. Bliss and Alfred D. Goodyear (probably a non active partner). In the 1880s
they made Suicide Specials under the patent of William H. Bliss of April 23, 1878
It seems that the partnership of Bliss & Goodyear was disolved already in 1860 though Bliss continued manifacturing revolvers. A lot of so called suicide specials were made under Bliss's patent.
.28 caliber percussion, 6 shot revolver, 3" octagonal barrel, unfluted cylinder, marked BLISS & GOODYEAR - NEW HAVEN, CONN. 3,000 were manufactured in 1860. Sole agent was Union Knife Co. (also connected to Walch)
