Classic configuration with 7 - 1/2" .36 caliber octagonal barrel with gain twist rifling. Barrel marked on top flat with Colt's London rollmark. Gun is extensively engraved in the Gustave Young style with Young's distinct florals on a punched ground, with Gothic dog on lug. Engraving extends to barrel assembly, rammer lug, frame, recoil shields, trigger guard, butt, and backstrap. Hammer with iconic wolf's head motif. Housed in an appropriate case with blue lining and French fitted for accessories. Accessories comprise L shaped nipple wrench, bullet mold stamped "36B", Eley cap tin, and bag flask. CONDITION: Good, essentially gunmetal grey throughout after being subjected to a European style cleaning, leaving spotted darkness throughout. Rammer has some blue left around lug. Engraving is largely crisp, with some pitting to hammer from percussion cap use. Grips are very good, worn smooth from use and slightly undersized. Action works appropriately when cycled by hand, bore is very good with strong rifling and some frosting. Case is good with crack in lid, and partitions loose. Blue lining is very good with extensive pressure marks and discoloration from age. Bag flask has numerous dings and silvering to top of spring, but intact with no seam separation. Bullet mold has extensive oxidation. Nipple wrench with some patina. A nicely presenting set.
