Description:

Manufactured in 1901 with the standard two-line address on top of the barrel and Frontier Six Shooter marking on the left, two-line patent dates and Rampant Colt on the left of the frame, and matching serial numbers on the frame, trigger guard, and back strap, with the assembly number "208" on the loading gate. The included factory letter confirms the current configuration (grips not listed) as well as shipment to Simmons Hardware Co. in St. Louis on 21 June 1901.

Rating Definition:

Very good, retains 20% of the original blue and casehardened finishes, primarily in sheltered areas, with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina and some scattered light pitting. The grips are also very good with minimal handling marks, some light wear, and otherwise well-defined checkering. Mechanically excellent.
