This fine revolver has full or partial matching numbers on the following: frame, barrel, back of cylinder, cylinder post, trigger guard, backstrap and wedge. No number on loading lever. Barrel has the New York address and retains approximately 85% of the brilliant Colt factory blue with the balance simply flaked. The five shot fluted and rebated cylinder has all original nipples and some partially full safety pins. The frame and hammer retain virtually all of the brilliant Colt case colors. Has the silver plated backstrap and trigger guard which retain the majority of the silver plate, although tarnished. Fire blued screws retain virtually all of their Nitre finish. The one piece varnished walnut grips are near mint. Fine action and near mint bore. This beautiful little revolver comes with a factory letter and is listed as coming in a wood presentation case with bullet mold, nipple wrench and cap tin. Also, according to the letter, this gun was a part of Colt's Archive Collection and was utilized as a display piece in the office of the president. Letter does not mention the eagle flask, which is in near mint condition and original; original nipple wrench is high polish blue finish, bullet mold is a Model 36P Colt's patent two cavity with 70% original blue, Eley Bros. cap tin, and two original five cartridge combustible envelopes; the only thing not mentioned in this letter, the flask, could just be an oversight as the flask is proper and original.
