Manufactured in 1884. This revolver is one of roughly 4,000 manufactured from 1880-1886, as a continuation of the "house" revolver line, and part of Colt's "New" line of revolvers. Standard two-line Hartford address on top of the barrel, patent date on the bottom and "COLT NEW 38" in an etched panel on the left.
Very fine, retains 75% plus original bright blue finish with crisp original acid etched panel, some areas of light flaking to a smooth brown, and sharp markings and edges. Grips are also very fine with crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
