Description:

These Third Model Colt "Thuer" derringers were manufactured from 1870-1912. The top of the barrel has the standard italic Colt marking, caliber marking on the left of the frame, and London proofs on the bottom of the barrel. The matching serial number is on the left of the grip frame and hand inked inside the right grip. The back strap is inscribed "F.T.Baker. Gun Manufacturer. London." It has standard features and is fitted with a pair of smooth grips. Includes a leather wrapped case with Colt London agency interior label.

Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 85% plus of the original nickel finish on the frame with most of the blue having thinned to a smooth grey patina, and some light edge wear showing an attractively aged brass. The grips are exceptionally fine with only the slightest handling marks apart from the butts which hand some light chipping. Mechanically excellent. The case is very good with numerous tears visible inside the lid and some light handling/storage wear.
