The Pocket Navy or Pocket Model of Navy Caliber like the Model 1862 Police was based upon improved steels and the rebated cylinder design first used on Colt's Model 1860 Army revolvers. It offered more fire power while still remaining the same size as the popular Model 1849 Pocket. This one has the shortest standard barrel length, a small cone front sight, "ADDRESS COL SAML COLT NEW-YORK U.S. AMERICA" on top of the barrel, COLTS/PATENT" marking on the left side of the frame, standard cylinder roll scene, "36 CAL" on the left side of the trigger guard, and all matching serial numbers including the grip.

Rating Definition:

Very fine. 85% of the original case colors remain, 75% of the bright original blue finish remains on the barrel, 30% original blue remains on the cylinder, and patches of original silver plating remain on the grip frame. There is some mild oxidation and general light scratches and dings. The grip is excellent and has mild edge wear, most of the glossy original varnish, and minor marks. Mechanically excellent.
