 "Only 1000 Colt Single Action
-Author Keith Cochran in Colt Peacemaker Encyclopedia
Sheriff's Model revolvers were manufactured, of which only 32 were chambered in .32-20."
   CONDITION: Excellent. The barrel retains 98% original high polished blue finish with slight muzzle wear and some mild handling marks. The cylinder retains 95% original high polished blue finish with high edge wear and scratches. The trigger guard and back strap retain 85% original high polished blue finish thinning to a brown mixed with smooth gray patina on the balance. 95% plus vivid original case colors remain on the hammer and frame. The grips are also excellent with crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. This extraordinary Black Powder Colt Sheriff’s Model SAA is missing from even the most advanced private or public collections and would be difficult, if not impossible, to improve upon. Provenance: The George Jackson Collection; The Tommy Rholes Collection;
and The Doug Stein Collection.
Estimate: 100,000 - 180,000
