Manufactured circa 1870-1890. Blade front and hammer notch rear sights, with the top of the barrel marked "COLT'S PT.F.A. MFG. Co/HARTFORD CT. U.S.A." followed by " No1" flanked by Maltese crosses and the matching serial number on the underside. Light scroll engraving on the sides of the frame with a burst design ahead of the hammer and scrollwork behind. The underside of the barrel bears a set of tiny "crown/GP" and "crown/V" stamps, with a small "C" present on the underside of the frame just ahead of the trigger, which is associated with the Colt London Agency. Includes an oak case with Colt London Agency interior label, key, and four .41 RF cartridges.
Very good, retains 30% of the original blue finish and traces of the original silver plating with the balance primarily a smooth grey patina and crisp engraving. Mechanically excellent. The case is very fine with minimal handling/storage evidence.
