Description:

Manufactured in 1873, the first year of production, with the standard two-line address on top of the barrel and serial number on the butt. It was engraved by a period retailer after being received from Colt. It otherwise has standard features as well as a pair of smooth pearl grips. Includes a leatherette wrapped hard case and cleaning rod.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 80% of the retailer applied nickel finish with the balance having thinned to mostly an attractively aged brass and crisp engraving. The grips are very fine with some scattered light handling marks. Mechanically excellent. The case is also very fine with some scattered light handling/storage wear.
