We just got this one and it has a very cool untouched look! I started to clean it but I love the way it hasn't been touched in 100 years. This is a nice .44 caliber Civil War Colt "Army" model revolver. These Colt army revolvers were a favorite of any Civil War soldier that was lucky enough to be able to get one. This has a dark gray brown patina all over with a salt and pepper tone. Across the top of the barrel it has most of the Colt maker's mark and the New York City office location. These guns were actually manufactured in Hartford, Connecticut but New York City was the sales office location. It has matching serial numbers of 68,375 with the barrel wedge which is an un-numbered original. Thanks to Mr. Colt's bookwork we know that these serial numbers would have been made towards the middle part of 1862. On the sides of the cylinder you can see a nice amount of the naval engagement scene. The side of the frame still has the very clear "COLTS PATENT" stamping that matches the one on the cylinder. The action is in nice functioning condition. The handle of the gun has the original 1-piece walnut grips intact with a nice 'used but not abused" look to the wood. On the side of the grip you can see the the inspector cartouches. These cartouche stampings plus the small initials on the other parts of the gun are the markings where the gun was approved by the U.S. Government inspector. It lets us know that this is a military gun rather than a civilian produced gun. The brass of the triggerguard has a very pleasing golden tone to the brass. This is a nice honest model 1860 Colt patent army revolver that displays quite well.
