Manufactured in the first year of production and shipped to Abercrombie & Fitch of New York on November 16, 1956, as confirmed in the included factory letter. Standard markings, with a serrated pinned ramp front and adjustable square notch rear sight. Checkered wide spur hammer, serrated trigger, serrated back strap and a shrouded ejector rod with the deeply counter bored shroud. Fitted with the original checkered walnut grips with gold Rampant Colt medallions. With un-numbered replacement Colt Python box.
Excellent overall. 98% original high polish blue finish remains with faint traces of edge wear around the muzzle and a lightly visible cylinder drag line. The grips are also excellent with sharp checkering and a few very small marks visible on the butt flats. Mechanically excellent. Box is excellent.
