Manufactured in 1884. The barrel a clear "COLT HOUSE 38" in an etched panel on the left side. British proof marks are stamped on the barrel and at each cylinder flute.

The leather bound case features a Colt, Pall Mall, London, retailer label on the interior and contains a James Dixon & Sons oiler, two case keys, a screwdriver, a cleaning rod, and five .380 Eley cartridges.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 90% plus original nickel plating with some loss at the muzzle and cylinder towards the front. The etch panel is crisp. The grips are also excellent with limited handling marks. Mechanically excellent. The case is fine with minor handling/storage marks on the leather, some typical high spot wear on the lining, and spotting on the nearly complete Colt London label.
