Manufactured in 1861. This Fourth Model features the Hartford address with rare iron backstrap and trigger guard, thin loading lever catch, centered shield with no groove. This may be one of the finest condition of this model extant. Cylinder scene is nearly 100% with just some toning to finish, retaining at least 85% original blue. Nipples appear unfired with all safety pins present. Large trigger guard retains 85% of the original blue finish, backstrap has thinned to grey with flashes of blue. Frame retains nearly all of the original case colors, some brilliant. Good colors on hammer. Lever has patterned out. Razor sharp lines. Muzzle is in the white. All screw heads are near perfect, retaining a majority of the fire blue finish. One piece varnished walnut stocks are near mint. Action and lock-up are like new. Mirror bore. Full or partial matching serial number on frame, barrel, cylinder, trigger guard, backstrap, wedge and loading lever. Barrel retains virtually all of the original factory blue finish with just some minor high edge wear. These are often referred to as "Black Navies" given their dark overall appearance and with the exception of the wear on the backstrap, this one is as close to new as possible. From the Jim Linton Collection.
