It states that it was part of a 3 gun shipment that left the Colt factory on December 7th 1896. It was shipped to the St. Louis, Missouri firm of E.C. Meacham Arms Company. The top of the full-length 4-1/2 inch barrel it has the Colt maker's mark as well as the Hartford, Connecticut production location.
