Manufactured in 1877, the top of the barrel having the standard two-line Colt address, the patent date on the bottom, and the desirable "COLT NEW 22" etched panel on the left. "22CAL" is marked on the left of the frame and there are small British proofs on the bottom of the barrel and cylinder. The full serial number is on the butt, "0081" on the bottom of the barrel, and "0881" on the rear face of the cylinder, which is likely a factory error. The top strap is engraved "COGSWELL & HARRISON/226.STRAND.LONDON. Includes a leather wrapped case with the interior lining of the lid marked with the Cogswell & Harrison address, and eight .22 RF cartridges.
Very fine, retains 75% of the original nickel finish with some scattered minor flaking, primarily in a patch on the right of the barrel and on the cylinder, and some light edge wear on the frame. The grips are very good with some scattered minor dings. Mechanically excellent. The case is fine with some minor handling/storage marks scattered throughout and mild wear.
