The accompanying factory letter confirms the 4 3/4 inch barrel in .41 caliber (type of stocks not listed). The letter also states the revolver was sold and shipped to Simmons Hardware Co. of St. Louis, Missouri, on August 20, 1894. This was a 15 gun shipment. The barrel is marked with the two-line Hartford address on top and "41 COLT" on the left side. The left side of the frame has the two-line patent dates marking an encircled Rampant Colt. Matching full serial number appears on the frame, trigger guard, and back strap. The matching partial serial number "8161" is hand marked on the back of both grip panels.

Rating Definition:

Fine, retaining 70% original blue finish with thinning to brown on the balance. 40% plus original case colors remain on the hammer and frame. The grips are also fine with wear along the top of the checkering and some scattered minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
