Manufactured in 1874, the standard two-line Colt address on top of the barrel flanked by Maltese crosses and the desirable etched panel on the left marked "COLT NEW 32". The left of the frame is marked "32 CAL". The full serial number is marked on the left of the grip frame, bottom of the barrel, and in pencil inside each grip, and "287" is marked on the rear face of the cylinder. It is fitted with smooth rosewood grips. Includes a plain modern box labeled to match the gun. Provenance: The Don and Carol Wilkerson Collection

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 80% plus of the original blue finish and 98% plus of the vibrant original case colors with the thinning most prevalent on the right side of the barrel showing a smooth brown-grey patina, and the etched panel remaining crisp. The grips are excellent with a few scattered minor dings and retaining almost all of the varnish. Mechanically excellent. A truly attractive Colt New Line!
