Description:

Manufactured 1878 with standard markings, including the "COLT NEW 41" in an etched panel on the left of the barrel and British proofs on the lower left of the barrel and the cylinder. Matching numbers are present on the left of the grip frame, bottom of the barrel, and the rear face of the cylinder ("555"). It has standard features and is fitted with a pair of smooth pearl grips. Includes a leather wrapped hard case marked "G.O.A. BRIGGS" on the lid and three .41 CF cartridges.

Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 50% of the original blue finish overall, 40% of the original case colors, and 85% plus of the original nitre blue with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina, primarily on the higher areas of the cylinder and grips straps. The grips are also very good with a few light chips and otherwise minimal handling evidence. Mechanically excellent. The case is very good with some mild handling/storage wear.
