Manufactured in 1876, the barrel is marked with the standard two-line address on top, "COLT NEW 41" in an etched panel on the left, and the patent date on the bottom. The matching serial number is on the left of the grip frame, bottom of the barrel, and partial ("508") on the rear face of the cylinder. The left of the frame is marked "41CAL C". It has standard features and is fitted with a pair of smooth walnut grips. Provenance: The Don and Carol Wilkerson Collection
Exceptionally fine, retains 90% plus of the original nickel finish and 75% of the original nitre blue on the hammer with the balance having flaked to expose a mostly smooth grey patina, a few small patches of which are showing some light pitting, and a crisp etched panel. There is a minor ding in the front sight. The grips are excellent with some scattered very light handling marks and retaining almost all of the varnish. Mechanically excellent.
