This is a very attractive original .44 caliber military revolver made by the firm of Rogers & Spencer of Utica, New York and is so marked on the top of the frame. The marking is clear as a bell as you can see in the pictures. It has all matching serial numbers of 259. In Flayderman's guide he states that there were only about 5,800 of these revolvers made and all in 1865. What is special about this number is that only the first 500 of these revolvers were delivered before the end of the Civil War. This is one of those 500. The original walnut grips are present and they are excellent. You nice still clearly see the "RPB” cartouche stamp on the left hand side where the gun was approved for military service by the Government inspector. These are the initials of Robert P. Beals. Small inspector initials are still visible on many of the parts of the gun metal. On the bottom of the grips it has the two "W” inspector stamps still visible as well. The action works superbly on all positions. All of the metal parts have a surface with lots of the original bluing remaining on the frame and barrel. They cylinder has some of the bluing remaining. This one is a great looking gun when you see it in person. This is a great looking desirable Rogers & Spencer revolver that is mechanically sound with clear markings. It is also one of the ones that made it before the War ended.
