This particular Colt New Line was manufactured in 1875, the second year of production. Standard two-line address flanked by crosses on top of barrel, with the acid etched "COLT NEW 30" panel on the left side. Casehardened frame, blue barrel and cylinder. (scarce) "30 CAL" marked on the right upper frame just behind the recoil shield. Smooth varnished bird's head grips.
Excellent, with 90% of the bright original high polish blue finish with small scattered areas of brown patina, along with some light spotting and handling marks overall. At least 80% of the bright, vivid case colors remain on the frame, with silvering on the edges, top strap and back strap. Grips are also excellent with nearly all of the original varnish remaining and some scattered light handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
