Manufactured in 1856 with standard markings. The cylinder has the stagecoach hold up scene and "COLTS PATENT/NO. 110739". The complete matching serial number is marked on the barrel, frame, trigger guard, and back strap, while the partial number is also on the loading lever, wedge, and cylinder pin. Includes a hardwood case, fine blued Colt's patent ball mold with sprue cutter, dual-sided eagle motif flask, oiler, and some .31 caliber balls.
Very fine, retains 75% plus original blue finish, 70% original case colors, and 85% plus original silver plating with the balance mostly a smooth grey patina, dark antique patina on the silver, and crisp markings. The grip is also very good with some scattered light dings and scratches and retaining almost all the varnish. Mechanically excellent. The case is fine with faded lining, minor handling/storage marks, and the accessories are generally fine or better with an aged patina.
