serial #99749, 31 Cal, 6" octagon barrel with a very good bright bore with light pitting in the grooves. The barrel and loading lever have toned to a dull gray patina with light tool marks around the wedge and oxidation freckles. The cylinder is a bright pewter with some scattered areas of light pitting, most prominent around the edges of the nipple, the stagecoach hold-up scene is fully evident on cylinder. The frame has toned to light gray case-hardened patina having some light oxidation staining and traces of original colors in the protected areas. The brass triggerguard and backstrap have toned to a goldenrod patina with generous traces of original silver plate in the protected areas. The one-piece walnut grip rates very good as refinished with light dings from the years and added finish. All of the numbers match including the wedge, some of the screw slots show some light damage but the gun seems to function well mechanically. Included is a period open top black leather holster. A very attractive 1849 pocket. (178171-11) {ANTIQUE} (800/1200) SOLD FOR $920.00
