Description:

Manufactured in 1882. The top of the barrel has the two-line address, the left side has the etched panel marked "COLT NEW 32", and the bottom has British proofs. The cylinder is also marked with British proofs. The top strap is marked "WATSON & HANCOCK" and "308. HIGH HOLBORN. LONDON" on either side of the sighting channel. It has standard features as well as a pair of smooth grips. Includes a leatherette wrapped hard case with corresponding Watson & Sons marked interior lining of the lid and six .32 RF cartridges.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 80% plus of the original nickel finish with the balance having thinned to a smooth grey patina. The attractively aged grips are also very fine with a few short hairline cracks around the screw holes and otherwise minimal handling evidence. Mechanically excellent. The case is fine overall with some mild handling/storage wear, most noticeably on the corners.
