Manufactured by the Whitney Arms Co. circa 1854 to the late 1860s. Designed to evade all Colt patent claims, this revolver has a ring trigger and distinctive shield on the left side of the frame that covers most of the cylinder. Serial number "451" marked on the bottom of the frame ahead of the ring trigger, on the right of the frame beneath the grips and on the inside of both grips.
Good, exhibiting smooth gray and brown patina overall with scattered patches of light pitting. Grips are good with scattered scratches and moderate wear with some minor chips along the bottom edges. The cylinder does not rotate without manual assistance, otherwise the hammer and trigger function properly.
