These derringers were introduced in 1870 and totaled around 48,000 produced. The left side of the frame on this derringer is marked with a "C" and Rampant Colt, as well as the caliber marking. The top of the barrel has a rounded blade front sight and "COLT" in large italic letters and the bottom of the barrel has small British proofs. It is fitted with a pair of smooth pearl grips. Includes a brown leather wrapped hard case with the interior lining of the lid marked for Watson & Son of London in gilt lettering and three .41 RF cartridges.
Very fine, retains 85% of the original blue and silver finish with the balance having thinned to either a smooth grey patina or attractively aged brass and a minor ding on the upper left rear of the barrel. The grips are also very fine with some scattered light handling marks and retaining most of the varnish. The case is fine with some mild wear.
