The New Model Army revolver was one of the major handguns of the Civil War with this example having a script letter cartouche on the left grip panel. The barrel is numbered "66673" which may have been a factory error as the trigger guard is numbered "669/679" which is correct if the first "9" wasn't present. The top flat is marked "PATENTED SEPT. 14. 1858/E.REMINGTON & SONS. ILION. NEW YORK. U.S.A/NEW-MODEL." The major components have single letter inspection marks including the bottoms of the grip panels (mostly "L"). The grips are numbered to the revolver in pencil, and the left grip has a script "BH" cartouche.
Very fine with 70% of the original blue finish, some fading mainly on the grip straps, drag lines and some minor flaking on the cylinder, attractive aged patina on the trigger guard, and generally minor overall wear. The grips are fine and have light edge and handling wear and a distinct cartouche. Mechanically fine.
