Description:

The accompanying factory letter confirms the 7 1/2 inch barrel in .32-20 caliber, and blue finish (type of stocks is not listed). The letter also states the revolver was sold and shipped to Edwards & Walker Co. of Portland, Maine, on December 13, 1940. This was a single gun shipment. The barrel is stamped with the one-line Hartford address on top and "32 W.C.F." on the left side. The left side of the trigger guard has the number "4" and the Colt factory triangle proof. Matching serial numbers are found on the frame, trigger guard, back strap and both grip panels.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 80% original blue finish with thinning to brown on the grip straps, some high edge wear and cylinder drag lines. The frame retains 75% original case colors. The grips are excellent with a few mild handling marks and overall crisp grip checkering. Mechanically excellent.
