serial #298819, 32 WCF, 4 3/4? barrel with a bright, otherwise excellent bore but for some scattered oxidation and scattered light pitting. The barrel and ejector rod housing retain about 95% original blue, the loss is due primarily to even fading and flaking to a plum patina, showing a bit more wear on the ejector rod housing. The cylinder retains perhaps 85-90% original blue, the balance also a pewter and plum patina. The frame shows trace case colors in the pinched section below the barrel, the balance a warm plum patina, the hammer with strong muting colors with good pale blue on the trigger. The backstrap is a plum brown with the triggerguard showing trace blue at the root. The revolver has a pair of checkered hard rubber Rampant Colt grips which rate very good, they are un-numbered but fit very well, being a bit proud at their rear butt edge, with the metal a bit proud at the leading edge. Manufactured in 1907, the gun still times well and locks up properly. (38737-180) {C&R} [Dr. Louis C. March Jr. Collection] (3000/5000) SOLD FOR $3,450.00
